Mississippi State center was just having the time of his life stomping and kicking people in the stomach and groin last night...this guy should be suspended for at least three games...

Day has been suspended for the October 4th game vs Texas A&M.

I just think if Maryland ends up losing a total of 2 games this year by a combined 20 points, they're as equally good as a one loss ranked team who was blown out by 20 points. That's just my opinion.

And I think if I won a million dollars I'd pay off my student loans.

My hypothetical is just as likely as yours.

Twenty years ago today, Kordell Stewart's 70-yard prayer was answered.

To this day, it remains most miraculous play I have ever witnessed.

My parents both went Ohio State so it was a pretty fun moment in my house. I was 7, but I can remember watching that play and my dad celebrating like it was yesterday. It was 1994 so he was on the cordless house phone with some college friend of his complaining about how Michigan always gets the breaks and then that happened.

I miss Michigan being good. It made college football way more fun.

Thing I love about that video: No replays. Today if that happened it'd have to be reviewed and there would be that pause to confirm it actually happened. Every time something amazing happens I can't enjoy it because I'm waiting for the replay or the league to confirm it. I'm all for getting everything right but there are times I really miss when what you saw and what was initially called is what happened.

I'm not saying go back or anything, but i just miss that sometimes.

So guess what FSU served recruits Saturday night?

Crab Legs.

Hope they were paid for ;) There must be some really good crab legs down there or something.

Well, here's the #1 reason why Charlie Strong has dismissed nine players, suspended many and others have decided to quit the team...

Texas is drug testing twice as much as they did in the final days of Mack Brown.

The report cites numbers obtained in an open records request that show an average of 104 tests were given to football players annually from 2010 to 2013.

In the first eight months under Strong, 188 drug tests have been given. At that rate, 282 tests will be administered by the time Strong's first year is completed.

Davis Webb threw 44 passes in one half for Texas Tech. That is overkill.

Well, this UCLA-ASU game has escalated quickly. It was once 17-6 ASU, now it's 48-20 UCLA.

Not nearly a true representation of who UCLA is. ASU not having Taylor Kelly is basically a death knell.

That's a bit of a cop out, don't you think? Obviously, their offense isn't nearly as explosive without Kelly and his absence is a huge loss, but does he play defense or special teams? That's where ASU is getting hammered tonight.

The back-up QB has made a couple of huge, huge errors, but so has the rest of the offense.

Nope. Not a cop out at all. You'll see that when y'all get hammered by USC by 40. Trust me.

So a few weeks back, UCLA losing their starting QB doesn't excuse them playing a close game against Texas but somehow ASU losing their QB excuses them getting curb-stomped by UCLA?

Arizona State ran 105 plays and piled up 626 yards....and lost by 35.

Yeah, 27 points, but the offense was moving the ball. They were doing their job.

Will defense ever make a comeback in the sport of football?

Sometimes fans see it in action and hate it. Clearest recent example was the 9-6 LSU v. Alabama OT game in November 2011.

It apparently doesn't work both ways.

I understand the hate for a 9-6 game. That is too extreme. I would love to see more 21-17 games. Just seeing a difficulty to score would be great.

The real difference was that ASU lacked...

Young defense got exposed.
