Not my gang..


But I'm still enjoying the heck out of college football this season. I know Clemson and OSU are an easy 1 & 2, but it's chaos below that. There's been a lot of highly entertaining games the last few weeks.

I've had a hard time getting into it. Need sports gambling in VA ASAP.

7 games cancelled/PPD so far.

Breeders Cup is Saturday so I'll probably only watch the Clemson game.

Fox's college pre-game show team will all be out this weekend due to COVID-19 protocols. They will be replaced by some of the Fox NFL pre-game show group.

Maybe I was wrong about Indiana?

Naaah, more likely Meatchicken just sucks harder at football than IU.

Re: College Football 2020: Week 10: The Gang's All Here Edition.

I havent checked the rosters, but traditionally Meatchicken has more Ohio-born players on their team than any other Big Ten schools not named tOSU. Those not good enough to play in Columbus tend to be welcome up at Ann Arbor.

​​​​Maybe the Hoosiers did a better job of recruiting from Ohio than Harbaugh did?

Or maybe Meatchicken really does just suck.

at PSU. That's some nice sweetness tuning over after the Breeders Cup.

And to think Pharoh was fretting about them losing to Indiana for some kind of buffer for OSU.

Meanwhile, the SEC continues to be the new B12. Congrats if you have the Over in the CBS game. It hit at halftime.

I think everybody in the B1G sucks and this season only exists to qualify tOSU for the playoff. I just hope somebody knocks them off, it sure won't be us. It's a weird season though.

Re: College Football 2020: Week 10: The Gang's All Here Edition.

I'm frankly hoping Harbaugh can keep his job. If TTUN runs the table, and then loses to tOSU like they're supposed to, they might be invited to a bowl somewhere in the Midwest - Omaha? - where they can lose to Iowa State sometime around Pearl Harbor Day.

Harbaugh is the best thing to happen to Buckeye football since Lloyd Carr. Please, keep him.

BTW - He's not a bad coach. I mean that sincerely. He would be a great fit at a number of schools and would be successful there. I would love to see him in Bloomington to turn this horrid program into one that isn't the 2000's laughing stock that Northwestern was in the 1980-90's. It's just that in six years up North, he's not been able to figure out how to succeed. He's never beaten tOSU. He's lost all but one bowl game, and he's now 1-3 at home against Sparty.

The B1G needs to do something about the competitive balance between the divisions. It's really not fair that Ohio State, Indiana, and Maryland are all in the East.

Penn State starts the season a perfect 0-3. The only reason it wasn't a bigger blowout was Maryland took their foot off the gas and just ran off clock once it was 35-7 very early in the 2nd half.

I think both statements are true IMO.

I have no idea why he has performed so poorly at Michigan. Maybe it has something to do with him being the returning son and anointed Coach for Life upon his arrival. Maybe as a college coach his shtick wears thin quickly, like it did in the NFL. I mean, the guy really only had one good season at Stanford before he went to the 49ers, where he had two good seasons before it fell apart and he went to Michigan.

Well, Notre Dame defense is playing a good game. If the offense can decide to be aggressive, they may take it. Unless they keep running on 1st, 2nd, 3rd.............

Congratulations Notre Dame. Enjoy your massive outbreak of COVID-19 in two weeks. Hope it was worth it to celebrate together.

If you saw that storming of the field in South Bend, you would think there is no pandemic. Must be nice.

Looked like most everyone was wearing masks, so very possible no cases come from the field rush, but how reckless? Your team just put the playoffs squarely on their racket and the students risk infecting the team and shutting them down? Insane.

I was thinking the same thing everyone else was, why are these students running onto the field?

Masks help, sure. But this is absurd.

Honestly, I don't think that he's the same guy that he was when we hired him. I think something died inside of him after that second game against OSU in Columbus, the first down, "was it or wasn't it" game.

He just doesn't have the same fire that he used to.

That's kind of what I was getting at when I mentioned him being treated like the returning hero when he was hired. I know he feels pressure to win, but does he feel like his job is on the line like any other coach would? I get the impression he does not, not really. At least not like a coach should who -- considering the tools he has been given -- hasn't proven anything yet. Bo Schembechler he ain't. He just doesn't seem to show a sense of urgency. At least that's the impression I get as a general B1G fan...a UM fan might see it differently.

No, you pretty much nailed it. But he was that guy the first couple of years, then it's like he stopped caring.

Buddy just reminded me the Badgers were supposed to play Notre Dame at Lambeau Field a couple weeks ago. Dammit.

And how would that outbreak affect the team? Lots of loss of sense of taste and smell? Oh, the horror.

Dude you are, with all due respect, a total idiot. If you would like to discuss in great detail the many, many potential dangers of COVID spread in a community, as well as the staggering US death count, I suggest you move it to the COVID thread in the Political Forum.
