College Football 2011

Saturday night isn't for fighting.... it (and the rest of Saturday) is for college football!

 

So, got the first big goose bumps for the season today. Getting pretty excited. Hoping, if nothing else, the Buckeyes can put a hurting on Michigan.

 

So, anyway, I saw this and, as big an Ohio State fan as I fancy myself, I had to laugh:

Being a diehard Miami fan since the Testeverde days I still find that funny.

 

But I am pissed that after the down years with Shannon they seem to make a good move with a new coach and somehow they don't know that some Ponzi Schemer Booster is giving half the team money. WTF?

 

There is no doubt in mind that all of the things that Miami, USC and Ohio State are in trouble for probably happens at at least 50% of schools they just don't get caught. Then again some of these guys can barely take a shit without breaking some type of obscure NCAA rule.

I'm an Arizona State Sun Devils fan, and Dennis Erickson (who won a NCAA title at Miami) is our coach. Since he's been here he's run a really clean program...and we've either stunk or been mediocre. That should tell you everything you need to know. You don't get to be an "elite" program by being a totally clean program.

 

Even with all the crap going on I'm still looking forward to the season. I'm interested to see how things with the new Pac-12 conference will turn out.

That's a great observation and probably not to far off.

 

Dennis was a great coach at the U and his son Craig was a heck of a QB and is pretty overlooked in Miami history since Kosar, Kelly and Testeverde and even Toretta since he won the heisman get remembered well, but Erickson, Steve Walsh and Ken Dorsey were great QB's as well.

Boy, it's a good thing nothing interesting has gone on in college football in the 5+ weeks since the last post in this thread. :whistle:

 

I remember when one could come to HH for some scintillating sports discussion. Anywho, go college fantasy football. That and watching good games in which I don't have a vested interest are about all I have going for me. (That said, next Saturday night, it'll be praying for some miracle for the Buckeyes and drinking some good beer and eating some good food. Ohio State may not be the same, but thank God for college football Saturdays!)

I agree not much conversation going on lately as we had the last five or six years. I've had a hard time keeping up and seem to be busier than normal and missing many games. I will say that Wisconsin looks really good with not only their normal great running game but now that have a great QB in Wilson so they could have a chance to run the table. The winner of Bama and LSU will most likely play in the Championship. Boise State will probably run the table as well so should be there at the end too. One thing I hate is the movement from conference to conference especially the new Big East teams jumping to the ACC. I hate that you're gonna blow up a great basketball conference for football and money especially when teams like Syracuse are never that great in football. Very sad to see long time rivalries going away. I'm wondering after yesterdays ass whooping if Nebraska is missing the Big 12 North. :lol:

I agree. This realignment stuff is nuts. I can see why the Big Ten would grab one more team and the Pac-10 would grab 2 more teams, but why does the SEC need to rip apart other leagues further. (Or the Pac-10 need to grow.) I know, money, but what we grew up loving is going by the way side.

 

Maybe, just like with the rest of the world, it's just a sign of the apocalypse.

 

(I agree Wes, Nebraska has to miss that home cookin'!)

 

LSU looks TOUGH this year. That game with Bama is looking incredible! (And I'm guessing the SEC Championship will be as well.)

 

At this point, my season not being a waste (and a reason to consume even more beer than normal) rests on beating Michigan at season's end, although as of now, I'm thinking not getting embarrassed badly will be a more realistic goal. Hope something changes between now and then.

Phew! Nebraska must have just needed a bit to get going in the Big Ten because BOY, did they make the greatest comeback in the history of comebacks last week.

 

I wish there was a sports network that just did play-by-play and didn't feel the need to spoil the game by inserting a foot in to their gaping maws. All many ("all" lately?) talking heads (yes Mark May, that was directed right at your nerdy, narrow-minded, lucky-to-still-be-employed ass) are able to do is slam Ohio State and how horrible they've been this year (or they have even slammed them when they were on top) and took such satisfaction at their mediocrity. Yet, when the Buckeyes were routing Nebraska 27-6, there was no talk of these "World Beaters".

 

However, one bad play (at minimum stopping a clock-chewing drive, at max a 14-pt swing) and a bad plant by Miller and Nebraska had momentum. But for fuck's sake, they came back against the worst quarterback in NCAA history, Joe Bauserman. When Nebraska completed the comeback and the game was over, it's like Nebraska had defeated last year's Buckeyes or the nationally ranked Buckeyes of the past decade(s).

 

Am I denying that the Miller strip, and it's subsequent point swing, and Miller going out of the game were big turning points? No. Am I not giving Nebraska credit for the actual comeback they staged? No way. To be down 3 touchdowns with a quarter and a half to go and have sustained no offensive momentum as of yet in the game and to jump to 4 TDs in 22 minutes is an impressive feat. But to do it against a team with an electronic football game quarterback as your field general (who throws a ball that not only goes out of bounds, but sails over the fucking benches at the back of the sideline), is not quite the stuff of legend that folks want to make it out to be.

 

I fucking hate sports announcers. 11-1.gif

It's not really about college football, at least the 2011 season per se, but I just thought I'd check in to see what, if anything, was said/thought about Joe Paterno's passing.

 

I'm not quite sure how to rationalize 45+ years of good memories/strong leadership/"right thing" espousal versus knowing young boys were being sexually abused and not either kicking someone's ass or ratting them out to everyone that you could that wouldn't get you in trouble legally (which would include telling the cops). While I feel for his family, I feel for them more knowing that this great man tarnished a incredible legacy he built and they'll have to live with the fact that, if nothing else, he hung himself out to dry/enabled Sandusky to get away with something more/be free a bit longer.

 

Paterno touched many lives in an extremely positive way... it's too bad he couldn't count a few young boys in there as well because they weren't abused since he helped get Sandusky caught by telling the cops.

 

(Not that it has any bearing on today's subject matter, but I don't know how that fuck McQueary doesn't get the shit kicked out of him by the court of public opinion. He's the major douchebag in all of this, right behind Sandusky.)

    • This is from Simon Daniels personal Facebook page: I never post about internal affairs on social media, but since we are being brutally attacked by Steve Lynch, Forgive me for being forced to lower myself to this level, but I see no other way to defend ourselves at this point. We were made equal partners with equal rights by Steve Lynch in 2014. In the last nine years, he loved us for what we did until he decided to quit and leave us high and dry in 2019 including Randy. He waited for Randy to pass to terminate our work for no other reason than to harm us. I’m not gonna elaborate more. Not up for discussion.. We’re not looking for any drama on line and let the legal process which was initiated by Steve Lynch days after Randy’s passing take it’s course. Blessings   Also, in a question from someone as to are they still allowed to use the name and perform the songs now there are no originals left, he said yes as anyone can perform those songs (no mention of the name usage) live, but that they are now performing 80% new material on stage these days. If that is not reason enough to not see a band called Autograph, I dunno what is. I get someone like David Lee Roth would not wanna perform Sammy era VH songs, but if you go out there under the name Autograph, regardless of who is in the band, you have to accept that fans wanna hear the classics, not the new stuff most people have never even heard. Imagine Def Leppard going out on tour and only performing stuff released after Sparkle lounge.
    • USA Holland should be interesting 
    • The song is just ok. I will give the rest of the record a shot but the single sounds way too symphonic for me. I agree with the others, this is not Revolution Saints. It should have some other name or be a Deen solo release. I don't care for the engineering on this song either, it sounds muddy to me. C.H.
    • Yes! Finally a big pair of wings on the front cover.
    • Video for 'Adrian'.    
    • Geoff on cock, of course. 
    • With nothing on the horizon for the remainder of the year, my final list for 2022 is as follows.  1. Avantasia - A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society  2. Threshold - Dividing Lines 3. Battle Beast – Circus Of Doom 4. Soilwork – Övergivenheten 5. Blind Guardian – The God Machine 6. Ghost – Impera 7. Gunshine – Gunshine 8. Slash - 4 9. Skillet – Dominion 10. Ronnie Atkins – Make It Count
