College Football Open Thread: Week 4

Back for our 4th week of college football action. The games this week don't look very promising, but that is exactly what you want. When games don't look promising, they usually turn out that way. It will be interesting to see if this weekend turns to be a dud or turns out to be one of the more exciting weekends. I will once again update this thread throughout the day with my thoughts, pictures, and videos. Enjoy you day and leave comments.

Here's the announcing schedule, Pam Ward Chronicles, and the Must List for this week.

Mourning Games:
- Upset alert: Indiana is currently leading Michigan 17-14 in the 2nd quarter. Indiana has been very impressive so far on both offense and defense. And Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier has looked like a Freshman so far.

- Also Mississippi State is currently beating LSU right now in Baton Rouge. This season reminds me of the 07 season when no team wanted to be the 2nd ranked team in the nation. Besides Florida and Texas, everyone else is just average.

- Florida State is once again pulling their Dr. Jekell and Mr. Hyde act again. After thrashing BYU last week, the Noles are losing to South Florida. This is the first game that South Florida has played since losing quarterback Matt Grothe. B.J. Daniels has been very impressive replacing Grothe so far.

- An very unclassy sign was spotted in Happy Valley today during Gameday. I will just give you the link, instead of showing you the actual photo. It's that unclassy. It involves Erin Andrews so you no where this one is going.

- Michigan takes the lead behind a Tate Forcier touchdown. Then Indiana takes a 85-yard touchdown to give Indiana the 33-29 lead. Still 8:57 left in the game.

- Also here's the ugly throwback uniforms Oregon is wearing today. I still don't have any clue as to why Oregon is wearing throwbacks today. Via: Excuse Me For My Voice

- Fresno State once again traveled across the country only to lose. This time they traveled to Cincinnati to lose 28-20. Cincinnati had over 400 yards of total offense in the game.

- Michigan is going to escape with the 36-33 victory over Indiana. Tate Forcier threw a beautiful touchdown pass late the in the fourth quarter. Indiana was hosed by a horrible interception call with 2:00 minutes left in the game.

- Florida State continues to confuse the nation. One week after thrashing BYU, Florida St. lost a Matt Grothe less South Florida team, 17-7. Florida State fumbled the ball five times, four of those recovered by South Florida.

- I'm going to watch the Cal-Oregon game. Help me out by watching the rest of the games and leaving comments.

Afternoon Games:
- Here's video of Indiana coach Bill Lynch going crazy on the sidelines after a horrible interception call by the refs. Courtasey of JFein, we have a better video of the end of the Indiana-Michigan game.

- It's nice to be reminded again not to invest too much time in Cal. Once again they are crumbling to expectations and are getting destroyed by Oregon.

I JUST WANTED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT I WAS ASKED TO MODERATE COMMENTS OVER AT DR. SATURDAY. I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH I WILL BE ABLE TO UPDATE THIS THREAD FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. YOU CAN STILL LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS THOUGH.

Night Games:

- I'm trying to get the bad taste of the Cal blowout out of my mouth. Also some good news. Since more people have showed up at Dr. Saturday, I will spend more time on this thread for the night games. I will continue to comment over there, but I will spend more time updating this thread.

- So much for Florida players having the flu. Florida scored 31 points in the 1st quarter alone. Kentucky on the other hand, had negative yards in the first quarter.

- THAT'S IT! THIS OPEN THREAD IS OVER! TEBOW IS HURT! I PRAY HE NEVER GETS UP!

/GETS STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.

Thanks to JFein for finding the video. Here's St. Timmy getting knocked out in the Kentucky game.



- After a missed Iowa field goal, Penn St. leads 10-5 at halftime. Besides a long touchdown pass by Darryl Clark, Penn State has done nothing on offense.

- Notre Dame is barely beating Purdue at half 17-7. Notre Dame seems to be doing better without quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Dayne Crist has taken the majority of the snaps so far for the Irish and has done quite well.

  11. The Indiana defense has been really impressive so far.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Indiana looks really good. They are in Michigan's red zone.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Tate Forcier just threw an incredible stupid interception. Indiana is already in Michigan territory.

    ReplyDelete
  14. IU has to settle for the Field Goal. 20-14 Indiana. Also Florida St. has fumbled the ball twice in in South Florida's end zone.

    ReplyDelete
  15. TOUCHDOWN MICHIGAN. 21-20 MICHIGAN BEFORE HALFTIME.

    ReplyDelete
  16. FG is good and Indiana takes the lead at halftime.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Pam Ward is a fucking idiot. She didn't know how many possessions Indiana had.

    ReplyDelete
  18. All the mistakes today by Michigan is killing me. When they show hightlights from this game, they should play the Benny Hill Show theme song in the background.

    ReplyDelete
  19. IU misses the FG, still 26-21 IU.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Boston College has actually scored 10 points today. That's a victory in itself.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  26. The call stands and Michigan gets the ball back.

    ReplyDelete
  27. GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We won 28-14! It was not pretty and needed to force 3 turnovers on downs deep with CW Post driving deep in our territory, but my BU Huskies got the job done once again. That's why we're #4 in the nation, baby!

    WHAT???? THAT INT CALL STANDS?!?!?!?!? How much is Rich-Rod paying these refs?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Congrats on the BU win. I'm going to watch the Cal-Oregon game. Keep me posted on any videos you find and leave comments on the games that you are watching.

    ReplyDelete
  29. JFein, go to the Dr. Saturday live blog. I'm actually moderating the comments for Dr. Saturday.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dr. Saturday? Never heard of it.

    BTW, Va. Tech recovered a Miami fumble and have the ball just outside the Miami 10.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Miami is looking like they might be over-matched in this one.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oof, Keith. I see Cal has once again shit all over themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I guess no one is over here.....

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm around JFein. I had to take a nap though.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I see where you are now.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Here's a little better one of the Indiana coach, Keith.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DabE11pRvuo

    ReplyDelete
  37. You should spend more time over here ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Rutgers 34, Maryland 13

    at least we'll be getting a top 5 draft pick, right?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I feel your pain, kt. Cal was blownout today at Oregon.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Pam Ward is a fucking idiot.

    i take offense at your constant slandering of a fellow UMD graduate sir.

    /completely agrees with you

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sorry ;-) I will never slander Pammy again.

    ReplyDelete
  42. ok, i'm on Washington giving 9 to Stanford tonight...

    ReplyDelete
  43. its ok Keith....she has no business doing major college football play by play

    ReplyDelete
  44. Florida scored 31 points in the 1st Quarter v Kentucky

    ReplyDelete
  45. You going to be around tomorrow kt? I sent you the normal CIL e-mail.

    ReplyDelete
  46. i'm actually going to be at the Ravens game, so I won't be around tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Have fun then ;-) We will be watching the game with a close eye then.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Brock Huard is just as bad as Ray Bentley.

    ReplyDelete
  49. and Ray Bentley is just as bad as Bob Davie

    ReplyDelete
  50. They are all bad. Herbstreit isn't exactly great, but he's better than the other crap ESPN throws out there.

    ReplyDelete
  51. no, Jay, Herbie's just not as ugly as ESPN's other commentators

    ReplyDelete
  52. I guess your right.......

    ReplyDelete
  53. I've decided that as of this morning the trio of Pasch/Spielman/Griese is the worst crew ESPN has.


    Unfortunate because I used to like Pasch.


    Bob Griese this morning said you shouldn't hit the hole too hard as a running back. WHAT?!

    Jacory Harris was considered for a Heisman by those jokers and Spielman picked Cincinnati to be in the title game because he thinks they'll run the table.


    Jones/Davie is bad but the trio from hell should be banned from the booth.

    ReplyDelete
  54. @SSR, I was talking to my dad last week and he aked me who was announcing the Cal-Minesota game. I said it was the trio from hell. And he said, "They all fucking suck."

    So yeah if my Dad thinks you suck, then you suck.

    ReplyDelete
  55. My dad said they sucked too.


    Seattle is going to wear the fugliest jerseys in history tomorrow.

    http://cdn0.sbnation.com/imported_assets/259671/32349909-4fa1b65b8ebb63aaa421053330b9b022.4abe96c8-full.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  56. HOLY SHIT MOOKIE! WHERE DID THEY FIND THOSE JERSEY'S?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Dennis Erickson is ready to go to the bar and get hammered.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I know....they are terrible.

    For no reason whatsoever I think Seneca can lead the Seahawks to victory tomorrow.

    I hope Knapp continues exactly what Holmgren ignored and use Forsett more in the offense.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I loved what I saw from Forsett last week. Wishes he still played at Cal..........

    Also I was surprised Seattle went away from Forsett in the Niners game. The Niners defense couldn't stop him everytime he touched the ball.

    ReplyDelete
  60. The game was over by then.


    I'm not impressed with Chicago's secondary so I think Seneca can pick apart Vasher and Tillman with John Carlson.


    If we lose this game I think we're in big big trouble. Indy will beat us and that's 1-3.


    Jacksonville should be a gimme but Arizona is not. Then after that it's Dallas once the bye week is over. Tomorrow is a must-win.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I hear you. After tomorrow's game, the Niners schedule doesn't get any easier. They play St. Louis next week, but they play Atlanta then go on the road to Indianapolis and Houston.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Come on Penn State you're the only Big Ten team I actually like.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm with you SSR. Then again, I live in Philly ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  64. @SSR after looking at those Seahawks jerseys, I'm disappointed that my campaign to get my Fox affiliate to switch to the Bears/Seahawks game failed.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I must say, that after not being able to watch 3-straight PSU BTN games, it's good to finally be able to watch my Nittany Lions live on ABC.

    ReplyDelete
  66. @JFein, did you sit in the rain this mourning?

    ReplyDelete
  67. to the State Penn fans...if you're going to do a white-out, shouldn't the team be wearing white too?

    ReplyDelete
  68. How come you don't like Penn St, kt?

    ReplyDelete
  69. @ kt1000: I almost did go to Penn State. PSU was the only other school that I applied to and I was accepted as a summer freshman. And me having just graduated high school, did not want to start college literally 2 weeks after I was done high school and miss the family vacation over the summer. I like the school, it is a really nice campus, and a whole lot of my high school friends go there.

    I understand the State Penn jokes and all and a lot of the athletes there do stupid stuff (admissions obviously holds athletes to lower academic standards because I was only a summer freshman and I borderline excelled in high school), but they are a good team, JoePa is the man, and maybe I am biased, but I feel they are a different style and a different type of football team than the rest of the Big 10.

    ReplyDelete
  70. it basically goes back to JoePa canceling the Penn St-UMD series when he joined the Big 10.

    ReplyDelete
  71. @ JFein Penn State's a good school, but they let the football team get away with far too much...and Iowa throws apick

    ReplyDelete
  72. @ 49er16: No. The rain held out for the game, although the temperature was in the low 60s and I was wearing a sweatshirt all game. 20 minutes after I got back, it started raining.

    I've done worse, though. Last year, I made it through a 30-degree playoff game with snow flurries. My toes were numb throughout the entire game and the hour after I got back inside. Walking back, instead of taking the shuttle, was in all seriousness the best idea I had that day....

    ReplyDelete
  73. @JFein, that's why I love living in California. We don't have to deal with snow flurries. The temperatures get to freezing sometimes, but never really that bad.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Wow. JoePa has coached 24 father-son combos. Impressive.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think JoePa has even coached some Grandfather-father-son combo's.

    ReplyDelete
  76. @ 49er16: I like the snow! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  77. i made it through 3 1/2 quarters of today's Twerps game in a cold rain...

    ReplyDelete
  78. @JFein, I only like the snow when I'm snowboarding in Tahoe ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  79. As a kid, I sat through a snow game at Penn St. One of my favorite moments.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Fact: On gamedays, Beaver Stadium is the 3rd largest city in Pennsylvania.

    Philly and Pittsburgh and surrounding suburbs may be in PA, but aside from those 2 cities, Pennsylvania really is a mostly rural state

    ReplyDelete
  81. SHUT DOWN THE WORLD! TEBOW IS HURT!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Penn St. is really in the middle of nowhere. And the crowds are huge for gameday's there.

    ReplyDelete
  83. @ Jay: During that game, I was shivering and jumping up and down the whole game trying to stay warm, but as I sat at the stadium today watching a somewhat lackluster performance against one of the conference's weaker teams, I realized how fun that playoff game and that experience really was. Hopefully, I'll be able to relive it this year!

    ReplyDelete
  84. i believe this camera position for ND-Purdue is in Indianaoplis

    ReplyDelete
  85. Fact: However, Penn State has the lowest percentage of students given the opportunity to purchase season in tickets in the Big Ten, and one of the lowest in the nation at just 25.25%. Conversely, Ohio State University, with a student section of 29,000 tickets (in a smaller stadium nonetheless) has seats for 57.16% of their students.

    ReplyDelete
  86. If BU makes the playoffs JFein, I will meet you in Bloomsburg.

    ReplyDelete
  87. @ kt1000: That I did not know. Then again, the BU student section is only about 25% of our side of the stadium......

    @ 49er16: We really do have a beautiful stadium! And there's probably no doubt we'll make the playoffs, we're currently #4 in the nation, it's just a matter of how far we will go. I really hope they make the semifinals. It would be an honor to host Pammy in our press box.....

    ReplyDelete
  88. Sorry JFein, that was me you said I would meet you at BU. That idiot Keith still has me signed in with his name.

    ReplyDelete
  89. @JFein i'm just real bitter right now...best to treat me like you do any obnoxious drunk

    ReplyDelete
  90. seriously, Urban is talking to Tim Tebow's parents... while the freaking game is going on??????!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  91. @kt1000, it's okay to be bitter. I'm still bitter about Cal.

    @Jay, quite commenting under my name;-)

    /signs you out

    ReplyDelete
  92. @ kt1000: Who did the Twerps lose to this week? Appalachian State?

    ReplyDelete
  93. @JFein we lost to Rutgers 34-13.....19 days to Midnight Madness

    ReplyDelete
  94. @ kt1000: I often wonder if the Twerps would be able to defeat Cheyney in a football game.

    /Worst team in the PSAC'd.
    //Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference'd.

    ReplyDelete
  95. @JFein i'd take Cheyney and the points.

    /Maryland football sucks
    //Fire Ralph Friedgen Now!!

    ReplyDelete
  96. That creamery at Penn State is one of the best in the nation.

    And yes, the flavor Peachy Paterno does exist.

    ReplyDelete
  97. should I be disturbed that Brent and I are drinking the exact same kind of beer right now?

    ReplyDelete
  98. I always figured Brent to be a whiskey fan.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Yeah your right. When it gets colder, Brent will break out the Jack Daniels.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Brent is always hammered for these games. Got to love him though wanting them to crank up the Blue Oyster Cult.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Penn St. has sucked on offense since that great TD.

    ReplyDelete
  102. @49er16.....yeah, but Brent usually does a much better job of hiding it

    ReplyDelete
  103. Hockey comment alert!

    The Flyers placed Randy Jones on waiers! YES!!!!!!!!

    /Brian Russell of the Flyers'd.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Brent is completely blitzed

    so is Gary Thorne

    ReplyDelete
  105. Here's the video of St. Timmy of Florida getting knocked the fuck out.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFN90gkKHu4

    ReplyDelete
  106. Now Brent is amazed by modern technology.

    ReplyDelete
  107. jeez, inside handoff on 3rd & 8?

    and Tom Brokaw doing the Univ. of Iowa ad???

    ReplyDelete
  108. YES!!running into the kicker on State Penn!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. hmmmma 42 yd FG attempt in the rain? totally the percentage play

    ReplyDelete
  110. Why didn't Penn State take a timeout there to preserve some time for a possible drive after the field goal?

    ReplyDelete
  111. No good and Penn St. still has the 10-5 lead going into halftime.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Mike Patrick reduced to doing Texas Tech-Houston. sad.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Come on, kt, can't you be happy for me? ;-)

    And I LOL at Mike Patrick.

    ReplyDelete
  114. in a year or 2 Mike Patrick will be stuck doing games on ESPN360, still hoping to get back into NFL games

    ReplyDelete
  115. What's with the audio to the Tech-Houston game? I can barely here the announcers.

    ReplyDelete
  116. i have it loud and clear, Keith

    ReplyDelete
  117. "Right now they are thinking when can they pick it up? Can they trade it in for something else." - Tom McCarthy after a Brewers couple won a Chevy Malibu on Fan Appreciation Night at Miller Park.

    +1 T-Mac.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Sadly, Keith, Mike Patrick is coming in through my TV speakers loud and clear.

    ReplyDelete
  119. did Jim Karol tell you if USC would cover the 45 1/2 point spread v. Wazzou?

    ReplyDelete
  120. @ kt1000: No, he did not. But to answer your question, no, they won't.

    ReplyDelete
  121. USC covers the spread. Have you seen how bad Wazzu is? Their top running back almost had to have his leg amputated this week.

    ReplyDelete
  122. @JFein your probably right..i think i've already thrown my money away on one Pac-10 team tonight...

    ReplyDelete
  123. No, I haven't seen Wazzu this year. But I don't think USC is that great themselves that they can beat a team by 46.

    ReplyDelete
  124. They will take our their frustratinons on Wazzu this week. That always happens with USC. They lose one week, then beat a team by 46 points the next.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Penn St. dissapoints me....Needs to drink more beer.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Iowa's OL beginning to take control of this game

    ReplyDelete
  127. Penn St's defense has done their jobs. Their offense though...............

    ReplyDelete
  128. Whew! Somebody on the Penn St. offense finally made a play.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Arizona ST just had a FG blocked... and of course, Brock Huard attributes a 44' vertical leap to "great coaching"

    ReplyDelete
  130. Tyler Walker sucks.

    Tied in the bottom of the 9th, he gave up a walk-off homerun in the bottom to Ryan Braun.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Tyler Walker should never be closing games. NEVER! NEVER!

    ReplyDelete
  132. PICKED OFF!!! PENN STATE NEEDED THAT.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Georgia wins...can this night get any worse?

    ReplyDelete
  134. it got worse...the Orioles lose again....now have lost 9 in a row

    ReplyDelete
  135. Okay, your not a Herchel Walker fan.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Phew! Just a one-point game. Too bad our offense has to go back on the field.

    ReplyDelete
  137. YOUR A DEAD MAN, CLARK!!!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Thanks Keith. Your shitty Cal team jinxed Penn St.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Iowa looking real good at the moment

    ReplyDelete
  140. Iowa should have gone for 2 there.

    Oh, and you can just kill me now. Fuck Iowa.

    ReplyDelete
  141. DAGGER!!! No way Clark brings Penn St. back.

    ReplyDelete
  142. ANOTHER TURNOVER?????? UGH!

    After a great return as well.....

    ReplyDelete
  143. turn out the lights...State Penn is done...

    ReplyDelete
  144. DAMN YOU PENN ST.!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  145. Don't count out the Nittany Lions yet, kt. It looks bleak (real bleak, in fact)< but there is still 6 minutes left. Anything can happen.

    ReplyDelete
  146. @JFein well see if they're truly a National Championship contender

    ReplyDelete
  147. stupid Irish have bought all the f'n refs....again

    ReplyDelete
  148. Night not completely ruined. Notre Dame could lose to Purdue.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Word verification is "brent".


    Well I'm going to watch the Klitchsko/Arreola fight because I have some masochistic tendencies.


    Game over. INT.

    ReplyDelete
  150. hmmm... i wonder if Brent took Iowa tonight

    ReplyDelete
  151. Rudolph takes it inside the Purdue 35

    ReplyDelete
  152. please Boilers..come out of this prevent...

    ReplyDelete
  153. Ohio State is handed the Big Ten title yet again.

    Fail.

    ReplyDelete
  154. and Weis runs a draw, but Purdue calls a TO...

    WTF???

    ReplyDelete
  155. I hate Notre Dame more than ever.


    They should just dissolve the entire Big Ten.

    ReplyDelete
  156. @SSR i could not agree more...and please take ACC football with you...

    ReplyDelete
  157. I'm out guys, enjoy the rest of your night. Justin, Mookie I will talk to you tomorrow. KT, enjoy the game tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
