College Football Open Thread: Week 5

Back for week 5 in college football. The mourning games don't look all that promising, but the afternoon and night games do. I will once again be updating this thread with my thoughts, pictures, and whatever videos JFein finds. So enjoy the games and feel free to leave your comments on the game that you are watching.

Here's this week's announcing schedule, must list, and Pam Ward Chronicles.

Mourning Games:
- Alabama is only up on Kentucky 7-6 in the 2nd quarter. Penalties and Kentucky's defense have killed the Crimson Tide offense so far. It's too bad Mike Hartline is the Kentucky quarterback, or the Wildcats would be leading this game. On the other hand though, Kentucky has been very successful running the ball off the guard.

- Sorry for the lack of updates, but these mourning games are God awful. The only game worth watching is on the Big Ten Network. Michigan St. is beating Michigan 20-6 with time running out in the 4th quarter.

- HOLY HELL! TATE FORCIER HAS DONE IT AGAIN! HE LEAD MICHIGAN ON A 2:00 MINUTE 80 YARD DRIVE TO TIE THE GAME AGAINST MICHIGAN STATE. THAT GAME IS NOW GOING INTO OVERTIME. FORGET TEBOW, WHERE'S THE STATUES OF TATE FORCIER?

- All right put away your Forcier statues. In overtime against Sparty, Forcier threw an deflected interception in the end zone. Michigan State then scored a touchdown in the overtime to beat Michigan for the second consecutive year.

UPDATE!: Here's the video to the terrific ending to the Michigan-Michigan State game.



Other than that game, the rest of these games are terrible. I'm going to eat lunch and come back for the afternoon games.

Afternoon Games:
- Watching the LSU-Georgia game is painful. Georgia hasn't been able to anything on offense all day. Matter of fact Georgia only had one first down in the first half. LSU isn't much better on offense. LSU has been able to drive down the field on Georgia, but has only came away with two field goals. 6-0 LSU at half.

- Without Kevin Prince playing quarterback, UCLA has struggled at Stanford. The Bruins are losing 14-3 at half. Kevin Craft has been playing quarterback for UCLA and he has proven that he is the worst quarterback on the West Coast with his performance today so far.

- The first half in the Washington-Notre Dame game has just ended with a Washington field goal, leaving the Huskies with the 17-16 lead. Locker looked good driving Washington down the field with time running out in the half to set up the field goal attempt.

- It took overtime this week to escape with a victory over a mediocre this week. Notre Dame beat Washington 37-30 in overtime on a Robert Hughes run. I'm not impressed at all this season with Notre Dame. Other people can slobber all over them, but I won't. They needed late-game heroics to beat Michigan State, Purdue, and Washington this season. I'm sorry that isn't very impressive.

- Bizarre ending to the Georgia-LSU game. With LSU leading 12-7 late in the 4th quarter, Georgia QB Joe Cox lead the Bulldogs down the field that set up a A.J. Green touchdown pass. A horrible touchdown celebration penalty on Green gave LSU great field position. Charles Scott took a handoff 33-yards for the game winning LSU touchdown. While they had to be helped out by the refs, LSU did escape with the victory to remain undefeated. The Florida Tebows visit LSU next week in a match up of undefeated teams.

Oh yeah, in this game a LSU player was throwing up on the field. And CBS decided that was important enough to show the audience. With the LSU player throwing up, CBS announcer Gary Danielson got off this line, "that's the definition of sick." Thanks Garry.



Night Games:
- Thanks to JFein, we have found some more videos. The first one is the game-winning touchdown from LSU against Georgia.



- Here is the game-winning touchdown in the Notre Dame-Washington game. Once again Notre Dame gets lucky.



- During Gameday, Lee Corso put on the Florida State head gear while in Boston College. Well an Eagles fan didn't like that and threw a hard hat at Mr. Corso.



- Oklahoma is leading 10-7 over Miami at halftime. Jacory Harris looked like a deer in the headlights at first, but settled down nicely by the end of the half.

- The same can't be said for Kevin Riley of Cal. Since throwing an interception in the end zone on the first drive of the game, Riley lost all of his confidence. With Riley unable to complete a pass, USC has loaded the box to stop Jahvid Best. USC currently leads 20-0 at halftime.

  1. Clemson-Maryland are both so bad, that I'd rather watch an Ivy League game on Versus.

  2. Wow......you know it's a bad afternoon of football when the most compelling game is Wisconsin and Minnesota.

    ReplyDelete
  3. @ 49er16: Now this announce team on ESPN is the trio from hell. Pasch is a good PbP announcer (he just can't catch a break with good partners). But add Wischusen in there, and it's officially The Trio From Hell.

    ReplyDelete
  4. @JFein, it's funny you call them the trio from hell. Two weeks ago when I talked to my dad about the Cal-Minnesota game, he asked me who the announcers where. I said that is was the trio from hell.

    And he said, "They are fucking terrible." So yeah, they are that bad.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Alabama has already scored a touchdown against Kentucky and that game isn't even a minute old yet.

    ReplyDelete
  6. A Wisconsin QB should never throw the ball.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Whoa. Minnesota leads Wisconsin in a semi-entertaining game.

    ReplyDelete
  8. @ 49er16: That's what I was referring too. ;-) You posted that either here or at AA or someplace......

    I like Pasch, but Wischusen officially makes them the trio from hell.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Poor Minnesota. They have no trophy's in the trophy cases.

    ReplyDelete
  10. They were just talking about how important Paul Bunyan's Axe was to Minnesota, but then they went on to say how Minnesota plays 4 trophy games.

    Basically my question is for anyone who is a little more familiar with Minnesota football than I am, is the Axe considered more important in those parts than the other trophies?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes, because Wisconsin is a border state and Paul Bunyan is a mythical figure in that part of the country.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Somehow Michigan has zero yards on offense, but kicked a field goal. 7-3 Michigan St.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow. I have now literally and figuratively become dumber from having listened to Wishusen, Griese, and Spielman talk about the presidents and their guesses for who was president in 1890, when Minny and Wisky 1st met.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Why do you call him Wishusen?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Kentucky has three personal fouls already and the 1st quarter isn't even over yet.

    ReplyDelete
  16. This comment has been removed by the author.

    ReplyDelete
  17. @ 49er16: Because I don't proofread as well as I should. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's too bad Kentucky has Mike Hartline as their QB. Or they would be beating Alabama 14-7 instead of being down 7-6.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The Big Ten used Michael Wilbon to reprsent their conference.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Greg Paulus just threw a beautiful interception.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Touchdown Alabama. 14-6

    ReplyDelete
  22. Holy Crap, JFein! I didn't even realize that Pasch isn't calling the Minny-Wisky game.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Now Alabama has scored on a defensive touchdown. There goes the upset in Lexington.

    ReplyDelete
  24. South Florida has turned the ball over seven times in the first half but is still beating the Paulus' 14-13.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Fake punt fail by Michigan. Now Sparty gets the ball on Michigan's 10 yard line.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yep, Wischusen is in instead of Pasch. I don't know why.

    Sorry I have not been around much, but really, these are some terrible early games.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't blame you, JFein. These are some terrible games. Good time though for me to catch up on some homework;-) I actually typed up my essay that is due on Wednesday.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Crap. Now YouTube's down.

    As if this could not get any worse.

    ReplyDelete
  29. At least the Wisky-Minny game is now interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  30. As soon as I say these games are terrible, the Wis-Minn game and the Sparty-Mich game have become interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  31. TOUCHDOWN MIGHIGAN!!! FORCIER WORKS ANOTHER MIRACLE.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Whoa. I turned my back and all of a sudden Minnesota is back in it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. FORGET TEBOW

    Thom Brennaman believes this is blasphemy.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wisconsin escapes with the victory over Minnesota. And Forcier was intercepted in the end zone against Michigan State.

    ReplyDelete
  35. SPARTY ESCAPES WITH THE OT VICTORY!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great finishes in Sparty and Minnesota, but now lets to get to the real games of the afternoon.

    I should be back around the start of the primetime games.

    ReplyDelete
  48. No problems ;-) Also I will be around tomorrow for the NFL live blog.

    ReplyDelete
  49. These guys are acting as if they've never seen Washington play.

    We know Locker can run the ball well.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Washington is so bad on defense.

    Clausen is doing what he wants.

    Time to bend but not break again.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Can the Seahawks draft Desmond Trufant so we can have the Trufants in our seconday sometime in 2012?

    ReplyDelete
  52. BACKWARD PASS BY CLAUSEN UNDER PRESSURE AND IT IS A FUMBLE!!!! TOUCHDOWN HUSKIES AS TRUFANT SCOOPS AND SCORES!

    ReplyDelete
  53. WHAT AN EFFORT BY GOLDEN TATE!!! CLAUSEN ELUDES PRESSURE AND FINDS TATE WHO BREAKS SOME TACKLES AND SCORES!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Watching the LSU-UGA game is like torture. Both offenses stink.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Clausen's throw to Armando Allen is off his hands and right to Donald Butler for an interception! Big chance for the Huskies to score before halftime.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh give me a break.

    Locker is sacked, loses the ball, ND recovers.

    No one like you, Notre Dame.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Roll Locker out of the pocket, Sark.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Holy Crap! Washington is in FG range.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Did Locker know he had a TO?

    Oh well a chance for 3.

    ReplyDelete
  60. And Washington goes into halftime with the 17-16 lead.

    ReplyDelete
  61. YES!!!!

    17-16 Huskies at the half.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I would fuck Alex Flanagan so hard her vagina would be open 24/7.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Please Anon keep those thoughts to yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I don't know SSR, but I've seen a lot teams have problems tackling.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Boo's coming from the Irish crowd.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Georgia goes for it on 4th and goal and scores a touchdown. 7-6 UGA

    ReplyDelete
  67. Washington is too good to pull a Michigan St./Purdue choke job.

    ReplyDelete
  68. That looked like a Washington touchdown?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Locker has to get lower than that.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Nice job by Washington holding ND to a FG.

    Also CBS is showing a LSU player throwing up.

    ReplyDelete
  71. That was gross of CBS to show that guy throwing up.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Georgia is down 12-7 with 2:47 left in the game.

    ReplyDelete
  73. WIDE OPEN AND GEORGIA IS IN LSU'S RED ZONE.

    ReplyDelete
  74. TOUCHDOWN GEORGIA!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Dumb personel foul on Georgia. That will give LSU good field position, with two timeouts, and plenty of time.

    Typical Mark Richt team.

    ReplyDelete
  76. And Georgia two-point conversion is no good. 13-12 Georgia with plenty of time and timeouts for LSU.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I hate to agree with Danielson, but that was a bogus personel foul.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I quit on the Pac-10. TD called back even though he was clearly in.

    Washington is stuffed.

    Field goal.

    ReplyDelete
  79. ROUGHING THE SNAPPER!!! FIRST DOWN HUSKIES!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Penalties are killing Georgia. LSU is going to win this game.

    ReplyDelete
  81. How did Georgia not tackle Scott? That was horrendous. Still plenty of time for UGA with one timeout.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Now LSU was called for a celebration penalty. The ending of this game is bizarre.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Georgia has one timeout and 42 seconds to score a touchdown.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Notre Dame left too much time on the clock.

    ReplyDelete
  85. And somehow Notre Dame converts the 2-point conversion.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Clausen went Shooter McGavin with the two pistols.

    ReplyDelete
  87. PASS INTERFERENCE ON NOTRE DAME!!!! GIVES WASHINGTON THE BALL IN NOTRE DAME TERRITORY.

    ReplyDelete
  88. This city is cursed. Move U-Dub to OK City.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Notre Dame is actually doing the smart thing and bringing pressure.

    ReplyDelete
  90. FUCK!!!! HOW LUCKY CAN NOTRE DAME BE THIS YEAR?

    ReplyDelete
  91. It might be overturned? Doubtful because they are in South Bend.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Locker at least gets them in better FG range.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Tied game! This one will most likely go to OT.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Touchdown Notre Dame! And at the worst time I have to go meet someone. I'm going to have to miss the ending of this game.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Notre Dame get another luck win.

    Send them to the BCS.

    ReplyDelete
  96. How Notre Dame escapes with these victories is beyond me.

    BTW, the state of Washington is cursed. Between Kurt Cobain killing himself, to the Seahawks/Mariner, to the Sonics leaving, I will say Washington is cursed.

    ReplyDelete
  97. W00T!!! GO HUSKIES!!!! WE WON 45-10!!!!!!

    It's official. Dan LaTorre > Tim Tebow.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Ron Franklin is calling the Cal-USC game. So even if Cal loses, at least get to enjoy Ron Franklin.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Now ESPN is showing Jerry Jones eating chicken wings in the owners box.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Oof, the wind is blowing hard in Berkley.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  103. MLB Update:

    Twins win 5-4, Tigers are losing 3-0 in the 3rd.

    ReplyDelete
  104. OU picks off Jacory Harris and proceed to drive the length of the field for the TD.

    Here's hoping USC-Cal is a better game on ESPN360.

    ReplyDelete
  105. why did Riley have to play the game of his life against the Terps?

    also, the ACC is pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  106. This game is Oregon all over again. Riley looks like shit, the Cal defense can't tackle.

    Cal will never play in a Rose Bowl.

    ReplyDelete
  107. MIKE RICHARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3-0 Flyers!

    ReplyDelete
  108. ESPN360 stopped working for me. :-(

    ReplyDelete
  109. I didn't think Riley could get worse, but he has.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I tell you what JFein, if USC scores on this drive, I'm watching another game.

    UC Davis-Boise State is on a local channel for me.

    ReplyDelete
  111. The Cal defense has fallen apart. They can't tackle or get pressure on the QB. This game is going to be a blowout.

    ReplyDelete
  112. @ JFein

    5-1 Caps...the Red Jesus is on the board again, as is Knuble.

    enjoy Tuesday night...

    ReplyDelete
  113. Tedford has to pull Riley. He can't even complete a pass.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Cal actually stuffed USC on 4th & 2. Cal has to do something here on offense to stay in this game.

    ReplyDelete
  115. If Cal can't score on this drive, then I give up on this game. I will watch something else like last week.

    ReplyDelete
  116. And Cal is a fucking disgrace.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Tigers losing 4-0 in the 6th...

    ReplyDelete
  118. 17-0 USC, Oregon all over again.

    Tedford has to pull Riley, he has no confidence.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Auburn leads Tennessee 13-0 in the 2nd Quarter

    ReplyDelete
  120. Big run by James! Canes finally have some life.

    ReplyDelete
  121. 59 consecutive points allowed by Cal...that's quite a streak

    ReplyDelete
  122. Arkansas is thrashing Texas A&M in JerryWorld.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I could have had a free dinner with my parents, but no, I make the decision to watch Cal.

    What a fucking stupid decison.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I must admit, I would like new Texas Stadium if Jerry Jones didn't own it. It's a beautiful stadium for college football.

    ReplyDelete
  125. since i wasn't here earlier, i am thrilled that Georgia lost because of that absolutely fucking awful celebration call.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Touchdown Tennessee, then Auburn blocks the extra point. 13-6 Auburn

    ReplyDelete
  127. The problem with Cal is that they haven't had a good receiver since Desean Jackson.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Miami has taken the lead 14-10

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  135. Touchdown Sooners.

    Ugh. And The World's Most Annoying Band Song is currently playing.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Yeah the Sooners fight song is lame.

    BTW, Auburn is beating the Kiffin's by Ten.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  139. My Flyers beat the Devils 5-2 so all in all for me, it was a good day of hockey.

    Who knew that Ray Emery would start out so well for the Flyers?

    ReplyDelete
  140. I can't like the Flyers. Not with that bag of crap Pronger playing on their team.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I'm not sure I know what you're talking about, Keith....;-)

    ReplyDelete
  142. You know JFein. Pronger is worse than Vick, he eats puppies.

    Oklahoma lost to Miami....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

    SUCK ON THAT, STOOPS!!!

    /Not an Oklahoma or Bob Stoops fan.
