College Football Open Thread: Halloween

With the games this week not all that interesting, I wouldn't be disappointed if no one watched college football today. You will miss the epic New Mexico State @ Ohio State game, but it's your loss. Also today is Halloween, so I do expect the majority of people partaking in some drunken debauchery. I probably won't be around much for the night games, but come on by during the day and discuss today's college football action.

Here's the Announcing Schedule and Must List

Mourning Games:
When Corso made his predictions today, he jumped on the back of a motorcycle with the mascot head and waved to the crowd.

- There is at least one game to keep an eye on this mourning in the Iowa vs. Indiana game. Iowa is undefeated and playing at home against a 4-4 Indiana team. Indiana is already leading 7-0 after one quarter and Rickey Stanzi has already gotten his one interception out of the way. I expect Iowa to complete some sort of crazy comeback in this game.

- "Hung over from the vapors of success."-Mark Jones, they are hung over, but not from success.

- 21-7 Indiana over Iowa at half. Now Iowa has comeback in every game this season except one. And Indiana has blown leads this season, including a 25-point lead to Northwestern last week. So this game is far from over now.

- If your not watching the Iowa-Indiana game, then your missing something special. The 2nd half alone has been crazy. I'm very surprised a Big Ten game would be so exciting. 21-14 Indiana in the 3rd quarter.

- Well after being down by 10 points to start the 4th quarter, Iowa has come back to beat Indiana 42-24. Rickey Stanzi threw two deep passes to put Iowa ahead in the game. Then Iowa scored two rushing touchdowns for icing on the cake. I wasn't convinced before this game that Iowa was a team of destiny, but after watching this game, I'm convinced.

Announcement: I will be in and out for the rest of the day going to bar then watching the World Series. I will probably sporadically update this thread as the day goes on with mostly videos. So enjoy the rest of the day and please feel free to continue to leave comments.

- Like I said, I would update this thread with videos the rest of the day. Check out this one. Missouri's Jerrell Jackson makes an unbeilevable catch against Colorado.



- Another great catch today. Riley Cooper of Florida made this incredible catch to score a touchdown in the Florida-Georgia game.



- I really feel bad for UConn. Two weeks after teammate Jasper Howard was murdered, UConn was finally able to play a home game, only to have their hearts broken by Rutgers. Sorry for the poor quality of video, I will try and find a better one. Until then, enjoy this crazy play that catapulted Rutgers over UConn.



- O.K., next time we play college football on Halloween, can we please never see "special jersey's" again. Georgia was wearing uniforms that look exactly like Grambling's uniforms. Then here is Tennessee. They wore black jersey's with orange pants. This is Halloween run amok.

  2. @Jay, I saw that. You would have never known that the man had a stroke.

    7-0 Indiana after an early touchdown.

  3. Touchdown Ole Miss

    It's too bad Houston Nutt forgot about Dexter McCluster or they could still be undefeated.

    ReplyDelete
  4. WHOA! Jim Tressel just called for the onside kick against New Mexico State.

    Take it easy coach. What are you going to call next? A forward pass?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Every time I see Greg Paulus playing for Syracuse, I can't help but remember all those times he was tea bagged playing basketball.

    ReplyDelete
  6. 14-0 Indiana over Iowa

    Time for another crazy Iowa comeback now.

    ReplyDelete

  8. @ 49er16: Sorry I won't be around much for college football this weekend. I might watch a few plays or so here and there and watch an end to a close game or 2, but after sleeping a ridiculous amount of time, I have a shitload of work I have to do, especially seeing as I am going to be doing the huge live blog tomorrow and I am watching and live blogging my Phillies tonight.

    Also @ 49er16: I'll send you those pics sometime this weekend.

  9. I'm so ashamed Penn State is in the Big Ten. What a horrible conference.

    ReplyDelete
  10. @JFein, don't worry about it. This is a busy weekend all around and lucky for us, this isn't the biggest college football weekend. I probably won't be around that much tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  11. @JFein, I didn't expect a busy thread this weekend. I wrote as much in the Must List and at the top of this thread.

  12. Iowa fumbles the punt and now Indiana can score to end the half.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Officials have to review that call. That was touchdown Indiana.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Bad call, that should have been an Indiana touchdown.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Now they have the touchdown. 21-7 Indiana going to half.

    Come on Indiana, hold on. We don't need a Big Ten getting embarrassed in the National Championship.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Stanzi had a receiver wide open and the ball was slowed down by the wind and intercepted.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I want Iowa to lose and we finish the season with 6 undefeated teams. Then we can finally drive a stake in the heart of the BCS.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wheels falling off for Iowa. Stanzi throws another interception deep in his own zone. Indiana can score here.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  20. HOLY CRAP!!!!!!

    IOWA HAS NEW LIFE NOW. THIAT WAS A 14-POINT SWING.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That was huge. Iowa was going to be down 28-7, instead it's now 21-14 Indiana.

    Some how Indiana is going to blow this game.

    ReplyDelete
  22. There goes the Iowa momentum. Now Indiana is back in scoring posistion.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Who knew a Big Ten game would be so exciting?

    ReplyDelete
  27. 24-14 Indiana going into the 4th quarter. Does Iowa have what it takes to comeback, hold on.

  31. And just like that, Iowa is leading.

    ReplyDelete
  32. 28-24 Iowa, this game has been incredible.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Iowa isn't going to lose now. Their defense is too tough.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Like I said, Iowa's defense is too tough. Indiana QB throws an interception and gives Iowa great field posistion.

    ReplyDelete
  35. And just like that, Iowa has a 11 point lead, after starting the quarter down by 10.

    ReplyDelete
  36. O.K. I'm convinced. Iowa is a team of destiny.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm outta here for today, enjoy the games Keith.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Have fun, Jay. I'm going to watch a little bit of the Cal game then go out myself.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Riley already killing Cal with a fumble.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Good thing Arizona State's QB sucks worse than Riley.

    ReplyDelete
  41. HOLY CRAP RUTGERS AND CONNECTICUT!!!!! UCONN HAS A TD INSIDE THE LAST MINUTE TO TAKE THE LEAD AND THEN RUTERS HIT A DEEP BOMB FOR A TOUCHDOWN!!!!!!! AND THERE'S STILL 22 SECONDS LEFT!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Jahvid Best with another incredible touchdown.

    ReplyDelete

    Ten bucks says Urban Meyer runs up the score on Georgia.

    ReplyDelete
  44. 14-0 Cal!

    Where was this team against USC and Oregon?

    ReplyDelete
  45. With those Georgia uniforms, it looks like Florida is playing Grambling.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Fucking Cal let ASU back in this game.

    ReplyDelete
  47. 17-14 Cal at the end of the 1st half.

    Also a lot of college marching bands playing Thriller this weekend. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I just wanted to say something real quick, AGHHHHHHHHHHH.

    Penn State is losing to Northwestern 10-3.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I watched a little bit of that Penn State game and just have to say, Oof.

    Darryl Clark is horrible.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm ignoring football and watching Airplane!

    Best movie ever.

    ReplyDelete
  51. @SSR- "No thank you. I take my coffee like my men. Black."

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love when the old lady hung herself because Ted's story was so boring and long.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Or when June Cleaver speaks "Jive"

    ReplyDelete
  54. @ Keith: Great news! After nearly a year of doing this, I finally have my first sponsor!

    http://fireandyreidnow.blogspot.com/2009/10/and-now-message-from-my-new-sponsor.html

    Yes, I know it was not working earlier, but I fixed it and it's working now.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yes, D-Clark is completely atrocious.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Joey....do you like movies about gladiators?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Congrats and it was working for me earlier.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Joey..Have you ever seen a grown man naked.

    This reminds me of something Mookie. My favorite mourning radio show here in California always do a radio marathon every year. One year they had their top 30 favorite "Airplane" moments. Some of the best radio I've ever listen to.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Everyone thought Airplane II sucked but I loved it. But Leslie Nielsen in Zucker movies are the best.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Agreed about Nielsen and Zucker movies. Totally disagree about Airplane II.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hey I know you, you're Kareem Abdul-Jabaar! You play basketball for the LA Lakers!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I just go an unwanted visit from my Mom, who's shopping in the area. As soon as she walked in the door she started complaining about the place not being clean.

    Nothing is dirty. All I had where a couple of beer cans on the counter top.

    If she wasn't my mom, I would really despise her.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Cal is going to lose to Arizona State. Now I will go and kill myself.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Cal somehow came from behind to win.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I've sent the live blog email if you want to come...
