Go Pack!

Started off today with a win in El Clasico, finished minutes before the noon games. Cooked some sausage and eggs. Great start to my day.

What you guys watching? I'm starting off with Ohio State-Nebraska and Ole Miss-Auburn on the screens.

Planning to watch UNC vs. NC State and Ohio State vs. Nebraska while checking in on OU and TCU occasionally.

OU-TCU is one of my glance overs as well. Not going to check in on UNC-NC State unless things are closer late. I don't believe NC State have much of a shot without Devin Leary.

I agree. I am watching for betting reasons.....

A vested interest, I see.

I'm a sick person. So I'm thoroughly enjoying Rutgers-Michigan St.

Impressive start for Nebraska. Nothing I would love more than an 0-1 OSU.

Sleptwalk that first drive. I still think this one gets ugly sooner than later.

How about Ohio State and Penn State at 0-1 ahead of next weeks game?

One can dream

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Got a beautiful corned beef going in the crock pot. Slightly overcast day here in Scottsdale, feels like football weather.

Interested to see how the Big Ten looks. Badgers looked really good last night.

Yeah Wisky looks like they may have a real deal QB this year with Mertz going 20/21 with 5 TD's

Yeah imagine Wisky with a passing attack and no run game. Kinda like VT with a offense and no defense... who woulda thunk. What Spidey Verse am I in right now... lol

Oh it gets weirder: the big 12 has the lowest average scoring of any major conference so far this season

Auburn-Ole Miss was a good call to watch. It seems like the closest game so far in the noon slot. As Ohio State has pulled away from Nebraska, that tv has become my skip around screen.

Was not thinking I would be watching Clemson v. Syracuse this late into the day......

Was not expecting a game....

Y'all remember when I talked about how Clemson is one of those teams that gets all the lucky breaks despite not even needing them? Clemson probably clears themselves of upset territory with a fumble six on a truly pathetic fumble by the Syracuse QB.

How did they not look at the kickoff in the Auburn ole miss game?! Another week Auburn gets the call. No doubt that was a fumble recovered in the end zone

Auburn just won the game almost certainly because of that. The refs have given them probably the two biggest gifts of the season with this and the end of the Arkansas game.

I dont know how that anOSU reciever got his foot down. That was amazing body control.

Malzahn is toast if they lose to Ole Miss. They've wanted an excuse to can him for years, he just kept winning at exactly the right time.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Not 5 seconds after I hit post Auburn scores 🤷‍♂️

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

I mean the refs gave Auburn the game, so thats 2 hames now.

Ole Miss with awful clock management to lose this game at the end.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Waddle hurt on the opening kickoff and taken to the locker room. Hope it's not too serious as he has been one of the most fun players to watch so far this year.

Saban told the media Waddle's done for the year.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Yeah they announced it at halftime, but it wasn't looking good before that. In addition to the immensely frustrating VT loss yesterday, this is also the second year in a row that my favorite non-VT player to watch has gone down with a severe injury while not getting paid and it really puts a damper and forces perspective on college football as a whole for me. At this point I'm just hoping it's the kind of broken ankle that has a standard recovery and not some kind of career ending freak spiral fracture or something.

Tech in another WTF loss.
Iowa State almost certainly losing when the game where the winner is almost a lock to reach the Big12 Championship game.

Ugh, man I sure hope Virginia loses and Penn State is upset to salvage SOMETHING out of this lousy day.

It's amazing watching a team run a two minute drill where the receivers stick to the sidelines and the QB actually looks to the curl routes

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Indiana intentionally allows a hole in their D to open up and Devyn Ford takes the bait. If he slides down before going in the endzone the game is over.

It essentially allowed Indiana to get the ball back and they flew down the field to score + 2 pt conversion to tie with 20 seconds left.

Touchdown and 2pt conversion. Tie game. Please beat Penn State!

And the kicker gives pennsl state the ball at midfield what an awful kickoff

When is this sucky day going to end?

The balls on the Indiana qb to run a draw against cover 0 with and unblocked defender there for the tie

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

He missed just short by maybe 2 feet and now overtime

WALK OFF FOR THE WIN FUCK YEAH INDIANA TRYING TO SAVE THE DAY

Long long replay, but PSU goes down!!!!

9W1NDIANA GOES FOR TWO IN OT TO WIN AND DOES IT WITH A DIVE FOR THE PYLON!!!

That was the closest instant replay go for it all play I've even seen.

Yes! I despise Penn State more than UVa!

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Penix with JUST THE TIP FOR THE WIN

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Devyn Ford lost the game WITH a TD. I understand how that defensive tactic to allow the guy in the endzone to get the ball back, but I've never witnessed it actually end up winning you the game..

Amazing!

Feel bad for the kid, don't feel as bad for P$U

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #YNWA

I don't know that I've ever seen the Let Them Score strategy work before tonight.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Pitt 2017 I was pleading with the team to let them score on first and second down lol quickly turned into "YOU!!! SHALL NOT!!! PASSSSSS!!!"

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Honestly, Penn St should have gone for two.

Make it and the game is still over. Miss it and the odds of winning are still pretty good.

Franklin will be mad at Ford because he is a dick (Franklin), but Ford shouldn't feel too bad. Coaches get paid millions to think about these things. Can't be too mad at a guy that saw a wide open end zone.

Not even considering how easily the Hoosiers drove, scored, tied with the 2, and then won in OT

Gotta say I like these matte helmets with glossy logos for Michigan.

Great helmet game all around really.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

It's so beautiful I might cry

Fantasy opponent tomorrow is a huge Penn St guy. Need to figure out a good name change for this week

Hoosier Daddy

You mean to tell me there isn't a single dude on Minnesota's campus who can kick a ball more than 50 yards on a kickoff? Rope in a soccer team backup or something.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

In other news da u ain't back by what they've shown so far against uva

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Or UVa is good enough that we might not get the cup back this year because we aren't good.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

So, uhh, Mike Locksley.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

He has been a head coach in 47 football games and won 6 of them. 3 of those wins have come in this stint at Maryland. He was absolutely the worst hire they could have made from their pool of candidates. And its pretty damn funny.

Only thing that screwed my betslip more than our shitting the bed was Miami sucking all game and finally letting LOLUVa get that 4th quarter TD for the back door cover. FML
