Re: college football week 12: the calm before the storm

So if one year ago I wanted to wager that both Jim Tressel and Joe Paterno would be fired before this season's Penn State/Ohio State game, what kind odds do you think I could have gotten?

The smoke is starting to get thicker around the Urban Meyer to Ohio St. rumors.

Tressel wasn't fired. He resigned.

Re: college football week 12: the calm before the storm

BCS to be only for 1, 2?

http://espn.go.com/college-football/...me-sources-say

I've been expecting this to happen so the 4 big bowls aren't restricted from taking more than 2 teams from the glamor conferences. For all the talk about how the BCS isn't inclusive, etc, it's actually better for the Big East and Boises, BYUs, etc than a total discretionary bowl system.

No, he already bought a house near Penn State.




On only a somewhat less comical front, all of the ticketholders I know feel this is a foregone conclusion. We'll see.

Re: college football week 12: the calm before the storm

Sports by Brooks is saying Meyer has agreed to the job

http://www.sportsbybrooks.com/meyer-...ng-staff-29902

The only thing that makes me question it is the part about Herbstreit being on his staff.

Plus Spielman? That just seems weird, to grab a couple of ESPN personalities...do either of them have any coaching experience?

Iowa St. throws the INT, gives OSU great field position.

OT

OSU may win, but Weeden hurt his Heisman chances this game.

Re: college football week 12: the calm before the storm

Turned this on just in time to catch the last few minutes of regulation and now the OT(s). I've got to pull for the upset, but can't help but imagine how bad it would be for Oklahoma State to lose this game on the heels of that tragic plane crash.

INT by Weeden and OK St. Alabama and Oregon fans rejoice. All Iowa St. has to do is get a FG.
