Awwww, poor Sam Darnold.
No "Heisman Moment".

He must've imagined being a New York Jet on that play, but tonight he had the backup LT, RG and RT starting.

1- It was raining at kickoff, but lotta empty seats in Gainesville.

 

2- Maryland, with the 3rd QB, is up 7 at the half @Minnesota.

 

3- East Carolina is a hot mess.

A bit late, but about time USC dropped one. Their consistently lackluster performances caught up with them. 

 

Also, how neat would it be if freaking Washington State ran the table? It won’t happen, but it’d be awesome if it did.

Screw Wazzu.

 

This is essentially the same team which lost to Minnesota team which was in disarray.

 

USC also was w/o their RT, LT, and RG.

That's a 'them' problem, though.  Washington State can only play against the players the other team throws out there....

Boy, you wanna talk about the roof collapsing, Tennessee.

Yes.

 

Oh Butch Jones.

But with the contract terms, he'll be a "Champion of Life".

Georgia had 0 passing yards in the 2nd quarter.  And they still had the higher total for the quarter....Tennessee was at -2.

NO, NO, NO, NO and HELL NO! As a true blue Huskies fan, it would be painful to know that the Spewgars are better. Hell, Washington State should be so far down the ladder the state's D-III teams are better then them.

And the Gators QB issues continue as Del Rio will go under the knife on Monday (shoulder).

 

Yeah... crap.  I only caught a little bit of the game but the offense looked improved, though.  It sounds like the running game was solid which should help whoever's playing QB (I'd have to imagine Franks no matter how he plays from here on out).

Goodbye, Butch Jones!!!!

 

And the AD is from Kansas State... Good Luck folks!

There is no way LSU is better off with Orgeron than they were with Les Miles.  There's no way they're better off with Orgeron than... anybody.

I was about to say LSU AD Joe Alleva might be the worst Power 5 executive ever.

I feel a bit bad for Orgeron. He finally got his shot at his dream school after getting passed up (I think) too many times before, and he's absolutely biffing it. I figured he had kinda grown from his Ole Miss days, but he looks absolutely in over his head. This whole thing is a total train wreck waiting to happen, and I really hoped that wouldn't happen.

He's a good recruiter, as I understand it, and guys like playing for him, but there's a reason he's never even been a coordinator before.  Normally I figure coaches should get at least three years, but Orgeron still feels like an interim head coach.  He will definitely be on the hot seat if he wasn't already after the Mississippi State loss.
