College Football Open Thread: Week 9

Once again use this thread to discuss all the college football games you are currently watching. I will once again update the thread with comments, quotes, pictures, and videos throughout the day. Have fun and enjoy some college football.

Here's this week's must list and announcing schedule

Mourning Games:
- I forgot to mention that the Gameday boys were in Colorado Springs at the United States Air Force Academy. When predicting the games today, Lee Corso put on the Air Force mascot head.


- This could be the end for Iowa. Their starting quarterback Ricky Stanzi got hurt and had to leave for the locker room. Stanzi's backup immediately thew an interception and now Northwestern is driving down the field on Iowa. 10-7 Iowa in the 2nd quarter with Northwestern in the red zone.

- Where's Kris? Maryland is beating NC State 21-17 in the 2nd quarter. This game is actually pretty exciting despite the teams.

- And an undefeated team goes down. Iowa loses for the first time this season 17-10 to Northwestern. Ricky Stanzi got hurt in this game, essentially ending all of Iowa's chances at staying undefeated. Now there is only 5 undefeated teams in the nation.

Afternoon Games:
Now we got the boring mourning games out of the way, on to the more exciting afternoon games.

- Navy is beating Notre Dame 14-0 in the 2nd quarter. Notre Dame can't stop Navy's triple-option offense if they liked to.

- Here's the highlights to the Iowa-Northwestern game. Iowa lost for the first time this season, knocking them out of the national title picture.



- After two consecutive fumbles, Oregon scored to make the game 24-14 Stanford in the 2nd quarter. Oregon has been suffering from a hangover from the USC game so far. It will be interesting to see if they can come back and beat Furd.

- 7-3 LSU over Alabama at half. Alabama still hasn't scored a touchdown in almost two complete games. Alabama also has more net yards than LSU in the game, but they haven't been able to score when they are in the red zone.

- 31-14 Stanford over Oregon at half. Stanford already has over 300 total yards in the game, including 189 passing yards. Oregon is obviously suffering from the hangover affect from the USC game.

- It's a final from South Bend. Navy beat Notre Dame 23-21. Navy never beat Notre Dame for 43 straight years. Then Navy beat the Irish in 2007 at South Bend and now the Middies have beat the Irish twice in three years and both times coming in South Bend. I can't imagine Charlie Weis making it past this year. A loss to USC is understandable, but two loses to Navy in three years? Get Cincinnati coach Brian Kelly on the phone.

- Down goes Oregon. The Ducks lost to Stanford 51-42. Even though USC lost to Oregon, the door just re-opened for USC to get a berth to a BCS game. The Pac-10 has been one of the best conferences in the nation this year.

Night Games:
I will be in and out for the rest of the night, but I will try and upload as many video's and comments as possible.

- At least Notre Dame fans aren't taking the Navy loss hard or anything.



- Sad night for all Cal football fans. Jahvid Best was carried off the field on a stretcher after an unbelievable fall in the end zone. This fall and injury goes to show that there is more in life than football. Oregon State is beating Cal 21-7 at half, but the score obviously doesn't matter at this point. I can't watch this video, but I want everyone to see what the severe impact of the fall and what happens to Jahvid's body.



I'm out for the night everyone. Thoughts and Prayers with Jahvid, Jahvid's family and the Cal Bear family.

  1. Hey Keith, I have not forgotten about you or the open thread, although I won't be watching much college football. If I get enough done to my satisfaction, I'll watch the UConn-Cincy game. The part of me that likes these human interest stories is piqued.

    Other than that, I may post a few Twitterific tweets here and there but aside from that, I'll chat with ya later.

  2. I wouldn't blame anyone foe not commenting here in the mourning. What boring games this mourning.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Gameday couldn't pick a perfect time to do a Gameday from the military academy after the Ft. Hood shootings.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Who knew the most exciting games this year would be Iowa games?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Touchdown Northwestern!

    14-10 Northwestern

    ReplyDelete
  6. Touchdown Northwestern!

    SI cover jinx strikes again!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Now Iowa has turned the ball over for a 4th time today.

    Northwestern is playing with a shitload of confidence right now.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I said this last week, but if Iowa somehow wins today, then they deserve to be in the National Championship.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Texas is only up 14-3 against Central Florida at halftime. And your telling me they are a National Title contender?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Texas will get smoked in the National Championship Game.

    Also Kansas has taken a huge fall from grace. First they lose to Colorado, then to Oklahoma, and now they are losing to Kansas State.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Correction: Kansas isn't losing to Kansas State. They are though only leading 7-3 before halftime.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Iowa's offense was pathetic to watch with Stanzi. Now they are just unwatchable.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Even though Iowa is losing, I have a feeling they are still going to win.

    ReplyDelete
  14. If Northwestern scores here, no way Iowa comes back.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Iowa could be on the verge of losing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That's it, Iowa loses for the first time this season.

    ReplyDelete
  17. See you in the annual Big Ten asskicking Iowa, also known as the Rose Bowl.

    ReplyDelete
  18. 7-0 Navy over Notre Dame already.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The Irish just missed a FG...so its still 7-0

    NC State leads Maryland 31-28, but at least the Wolfpack knocked out MD's starting quarterback...MD has finally started moving the ball

    ReplyDelete
  20. Navy is driving down the field on Notre Dame again. They are at Notre Dame's 25 yard line.

    ReplyDelete
  21. end of the 1st Qtr...Navy leads 7-0, with the ball at ND's 25

    ReplyDelete
  22. if this kid Robinson isn't MD's quarterback for the rest of the season, then Ralph Fridgen should be fired.

    I'd stop donating, but i want to someday be able to get MD basketball season tickets

    ReplyDelete
  23. and MD misses the FG, so it's still 31-28

    but the offense has a pulse

    ReplyDelete
  24. Touchdown Navy! Murray with a 25 yard TD run!

    14-0 Navy

    ReplyDelete
  25. If this was a Navy home game, I would start chanting U.S.A.! U.S.A.!

    ReplyDelete
  26. you wanna know what sucks? when you turn to CBS and that station is airing the ACC Game of the Week and this Miami/ UVA abortion still isn't over.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Fat Chuck looks like someone shit in his ceral this mourning after that last touchdown.

    ReplyDelete
  28. of course, now ND is knocking on the door

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hahahahaha.....Notre Dame didn't get that call.

    ReplyDelete
  30. PI IN THE END ZONE?!?! THAT'S A TERRIBLE CALL...THE ACC IS SCREWING MARYLAND AGAIN

    TD NC State 38-28 4th Qtr

    ReplyDelete
  31. Navy holds! What a horrendous play call..

    Have another doughnut Charlie

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOL Notre Dame

    Is Charlie Weis really that arrogant? Instead of putting points on the board, they go for it on 4th and goal. He deserves to be fired.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My Sac State Hornets are beating Norther Colorado 31-0.

    Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm sure Sac State could take Maryland

    ReplyDelete
  35. No, they couldn't. They only have 3 wins on the season and there is no way they win their remaining two games.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Late F'n Flag wipes out a Maryland touchdown...

    ReplyDelete
  37. @Keith you obviously haven't watched Maryland this year :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Notre Dame once again can't score in the red zone and they once again miss another field goal.

    Still 14-0 Navy

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thats the 2nd missed FG for Notre Dame...
    why don't you bring someone in from the stands for the 2nd half, Charlie?

    ReplyDelete
  40. @Kris, I watched one Maryland game.

    You have obviously never watched Sac State. They are just as bad as Maryland ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm loving watching this Navy-Notre Dame game. The Irish haven't been able to do anything in the red zone. They have no problem driving down the field, but they can't do anything near the red zone.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Maryland within a touchdown...38-31 4:54 to go

    ReplyDelete
  43. what a nice run by Dobbs on that 3rd Down

    ReplyDelete
  44. Navy runs that offense so well. Notre Dame can't even stop them if they tried.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oregon is losing to Furd 10-0.

    ReplyDelete
  46. LOL, now Notre Dame are taking cheap shots at Navy.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Roughing the passer on the Irish is gonna set Navy up in great FG position

    ReplyDelete
  48. Don't complain Chuck. That was a stupid penalty.

    ReplyDelete
  49. @Jay so true. this triple option flex offensive is a thing of beauty

    ReplyDelete
  50. he missed..

    14-0 Navy at the half

    ReplyDelete
  51. Shanked field goal by Navy, but they still lead 14-0 at half.

    ReplyDelete
  52. what a run by Jamarr Robinson! MD is inside the NCST 35 with :33 to go...

    2nd down w/ :22 to go

    ReplyDelete
  53. oh he got sacked...

    MD will have 1 play left with :05 to play

    ReplyDelete
  54. Robinson sacked on the hail mary attempt...great fucking blocking guys...

    the bad news: no bowl for Maryland


    the good news: 16 days to the Maui Invitational!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Fuck me, that's a long trip for the Maryland players.

    It takes five hours to fly to Oahu from San Franisco alone.

    ReplyDelete
  56. @Keith yes it is a bit of a haul from here...

    however, i think MD is the best team in that field

    ReplyDelete
  57. @Kris, who else is playing in that tournament?

    ReplyDelete
  58. @Kris, nevermind, I looked up the teams in that tournament.

    Your right, Maryland should have the best team there. Only Wisconsin will have just as good of team.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Why did Tom Hammond just call Alex Flannigan "scooter"?

    ReplyDelete
  60. @Keith i agree with you that Wisc. is about even with Maryland and I don't think you can ever count out Gonzaga...

    big 3rd down conversion for Navy to open the 2nd half

    ReplyDelete
  61. Just your luck though Kris, Maryland will lose to Chaminade.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Notre Dame can't stop Navy on third down. This is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  63. i am disappointed Navy didn't go for that 1st down

    ReplyDelete
  64. @Keith ha! the funny thing is that this is MD's 4th trip to Maui and the 3rd time they're going to play Chaimnade

    ReplyDelete
  65. and I have completely forgotten about LSU/Alabama

    ReplyDelete
  66. So much for Oregon. They are losing to Furd 24-7 in the 2nd quarter.

    ReplyDelete
  67. ND finally punches it in for 6

    ReplyDelete
  68. Touchdown Notre Dame

    14-7 Navy

    ReplyDelete
  69. 14-7 Navy 5:03 left in the 3rd

    ReplyDelete
  70. is the ACC so bad that ESPN has to force Pam Ward and Ray Bentley on us?

    ReplyDelete
  71. I was wondering where Pammie and Ray where today.

    ReplyDelete
  72. the Irish can not stop the Navy FB

    ReplyDelete
  73. @Kris, thank God I don't have that game.

    ReplyDelete
  74. HOLY SHIT! NAVY AIRS IT OUT AND SCORES!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Dobbs!! 50 yard TD pass!!! WOW!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. That call should stand. Pending XP it should be 21-7 Navy.

    ReplyDelete
  77. no Tom, i refuse to feel any empathy for those Golden Domer jackasses.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Unfortanetly there isn't enough evidence to give Navy that fumble.

    ReplyDelete
  79. 7-3 LSU over Alabama at half.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Fumble and Navy recovers while Jimmmy Clausen is hurt.

    ReplyDelete
  81. that fumble is going to stand too

    ReplyDelete
  82. Tom your crazy if you think the ground caused that fumble.

    @KT, now I wouldn't be celebrating someone getting hurt, even if he plays for Notre Dame.

    ReplyDelete
  83. that is the end of the 3rd Quarter

    ReplyDelete
  84. @Keith I become a madman when it comes to Notre Dame,though i was referring to Clausen's fumble.

    ReplyDelete
  85. 40 yards for Murray on 1st Down at the 1/2 yard line

    ReplyDelete
  86. Just like that, Navy is in Irish territory

    ReplyDelete
  87. I can't believe that. Navy at their own goaline run up the middle for over 40 yards and now they are in field goal range in two plays.

    ReplyDelete
  88. well, Navy just punted for a touchback

    ReplyDelete
  89. Give it up for Clausen. He's back in the game after that brutal hit.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Why isn't Navy blitzing?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Nice 15 yd zone on 3rd and 10 navy

    ReplyDelete
  92. Then Clausen is called for a late hit. Our Navy boys are kicking some Notre Dame ass.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Apparently nobody told Clausen "the one who retaliates gets penalized" rule. The call is a little iffy. I hate ND, but still that was an SEC call there

    ReplyDelete
  94. I agree jgreul. I hate Notre Dame but the refs should have kept their flags in their pockets.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Huge stop for Notre Dame there. Still a two possession game with 6:44 left.

    ReplyDelete
  96. someone should tell Niumatalolo that the Irish haven't stopped Murray all day

    ReplyDelete
  97. Great punt for Navy. Force Notre Dame deep into their own territory.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Weird stat of the day:

    Notre Dame hasn't punted once in this game.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Jonathan Dwyer is a monster. That is all.

    ReplyDelete
  100. GA Tech just scored TD, tied at 17

    ReplyDelete
  101. Touchdown Alabama! 10-7 Alabama

    ReplyDelete
  102. How was that defensive pass interference?

    ReplyDelete
  103. every time ND throws to Floyd he pushes off, and he finally gets the side judge to throw the flag on Navy

    ReplyDelete
  104. and the Irish keep backing themselves up

    ReplyDelete
  105. Touchdown Notre Dame.

    One possession game now.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Navy is challenging the call and will lose it

    ReplyDelete
  107. Gut feeling: Navy is going to choke.

    ReplyDelete
  108. ND takes their 2nd TO. Another first down will end the game.

    ReplyDelete
  109. 3rd and 8..ND takes their final timeout

    for some reason, I'm feeling a pass as stupid as it sounds

    ReplyDelete
  110. And Navy tried the pass and Dobbs just runs and is stopped of the 1st down. Punt time for Navy.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I've never realized how tall Tom Hammond is before.

    ReplyDelete
  112. @Keith Navy choked away games v ND in 97,99 and 2002. And I think you're right

    ReplyDelete
  113. Wow! Navy picked up a huge break there with Floyd dropping that pass.

    ReplyDelete
  114. DOWN GOES CLAUSEN.

    4TH DOWN FOR NOTRE DAME

    ReplyDelete
  115. Clausen sacked! 4th and 20 coming up!

    ReplyDelete
  116. GAME OVER! CLAUSEN SACED FOR A SAFETY!

    ReplyDelete
  117. NAVY SAFETY!! THEY CLINCH THE GAME!!

    ReplyDelete
  118. FAT CHUCK CAN START PACKING HIS BAGS.

    ReplyDelete
  119. STUNNED SILENCE AS THEY REALIZE ND IS GOING TO THE GATOR BOWL

    SUCK IT CHARLIE

    SUCK IT YOU GOLDEN DOMER FRAUDS!

    ReplyDelete
  120. This will be the 2nd time in 3 years that Navy has beat Notre Dame in South Bend.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Time to give Urban 70 bazillion dollars to save your sorry asses

    ReplyDelete
  122. of course, the Irish recover the onside kick

    ReplyDelete
  123. Touchdown Notre Dame.

    Game not over yet.........

    ReplyDelete
  124. wow..that was way too easy Navy

    ReplyDelete
  125. Navy has to recover the onside kick this time.

    ReplyDelete
  126. the high onside kick is one place where ND can use their size advantage to great effect

    ReplyDelete
  127. And Navy recovers this onside kick and that will be the game.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Navy recovers..and you can book this game

    ReplyDelete
  129. I am out of here....see you guys tomorrow

    ReplyDelete
  130. What an amazing sight.

    Notre Dame with Navy as Navy sings their fight song.

    ReplyDelete
  131. SUCK IT CLAUSEN !

    SUCK IT WEIS !

    SUCK IT HOLTZ !

    SUCK IT ANY MEMBER OF THE MEDIA WHO HAS VOTED FOR ND IN A TOP 25 POLL !

    Only two reasons to watch ND games:
    1) see them lose
    2) Alex Flanagan

    ReplyDelete
  132. I agree about Alex Flanagan. What an underrated hottie.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Oregon down by 20 with 10 minutes to play.

    ReplyDelete
  134. That guys video is epic!

    ReplyDelete
  135. Brad Nessler just did a very poor stunt regarding Howards Rock at Clemson. He held up a stone and called it the Nesstone. Then he said "If youre not prepared to give 110 % keep your filthy hands off my rock"

    ReplyDelete
  136. I saw what Nessler did. Very poor taste in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Jahvid Best is hurt bad in the Cal-Oregon State game.

    Was flipped in the air and hurt kneck, head, and back.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Jahvid Best had to be taken off the field on a stretcher. Real ugly scene.

    ReplyDelete
  139. As good as Nessler was with Griese and Maguire, I figured he would be 10 times better working with ESPN's best college football analyst, Todd Blackledge. Sadly, I think he might be 10 times worse. Brad has not been having a good year.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Oof, sorry Keith.

    Very OT, but if you have not yet, check out my new Twitter background. I love Brad Lidge (in a non-creepy way), but it was getting old and Phillies season is over.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I can't believe UConn is back in this game...

    ReplyDelete
