2015 College Football Season

post #1 of 94
Thread Starter 

What better way to start the 2015 college football season with a juicy rumor that Jimbo Fisher's wife Candi had an affair with former UF wide receiver Taylor Jacobs?

 

Most action UF got all of last year!

post #2 of 94

Officially announced the split today. I haven't been deep dive researching stuff, but that's the only place I've seen anything of that Candi Fisher story.

 

Keeping the FSU news going, word is they will open the 2017 season vs. Alabama in Atlanta at the new Falcons stadium. I may have to take a night off at Dragon*Con to attend.

I'd watch that. And not just to see if a blimp crashes into the stadium to take out both teams, either.

 

Tickets will be fucking astronomical though, I bet.

You guys don't know how well I can relate to that.

 

In other news, the Big 12 is limiting contact to twice a week - and including game day in those two contacts allowed. 

 

So the league that plays absolutely no defense will now ... play it worse.

Lead after 30, then don't beat the spread. Hokie Football, baby!

 

We gave em half a game, goddammit. At least we did that. BRING ON THE FURMAN PALADINS [reaches for another beer]

As long as Tennessee scores 59 points a game, and the other team never throws the football, and Tennessee never has to kick a field goal, the Vols will be unstoppable!

Might have been different if you hadn't lost your starting QB.

 

But man that spin move by Miller probably should have been worth an extra five or six points on its own.

As much as I want to get excited about the Gators putting up 60+ points again, I have to remind myself it's New Mexico State. I think Georgia Southern could have beaten New Mexico State. Oh look, they'll get their chance on October 17th! Homecoming no less!

it may have been closer but Ohio State was winning that game.  And with Ohio State having a few star players sitting out I can't see them being tested till the semi final.

Goddamn motherfucking Vols. "Here, have the game, we insist."

 

Pure fucking garbage.

This is funny

Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema caught a huge dose of Karma when his program lost to Toledo 16-12 on Saturday. That defeat was not lost on Ohio State.

 

Earlier in the week, Bielema called out Ohio State for having a soft schedule. He complained that his Hogs had several ranked opponents left on their schedule thanks to playing in the SEC, while the Buckeyes only had one. That led to this reaction by one Ohio State player after he was shown that Arkansas lost on Saturday:

and the response from an Ohio State player

 

Quote:
 An unnamed Ohio State player when I showed him the Arkansas score started mockingly pumping his fists and chanting: "S-E-C! S-E-C!"

I can't stand the SEC.  Without Alabama they would be on par with everyone else.  The top teams lost in the Bowls last year and the Mighty Auburn barely beat creampuff Jacksonville State. 

post #13 of 94

My favorite sign from Gameday this morning:

 

post #14 of 94

Northern Ill  is giving Ohio State its all.  I don't expect them to win but I have thought if the Big 10 expands to 16 teams that Northern Ill would be perfect assuming their academics/stadium are up to par.  They beat Northwestern last year, Iowa & Purdue the year before. 

post #15 of 94

That Ole Miss catch. Finally Saban's karma caught up with him.

post #16 of 94

That catch only means something if Alabama doesn't win the SEC West.  Got to keep them out of the final 4.  Hope LSU can roll them too because Auburn, A&M won't.

post #22 of 94

VT has yet to exorcise the ghost of Walt Harris. I realize we're fairly crap lately, but it's become kind of rote that no matter how well we we're doing in any given year, and how shit Pitt was that particular season, Harris managed to get his boys up for VT week and ruin a pretty good season. I was hoping their coming to the ACC would give us the chance to get some sort of spiritual vengeance on a regular basis after several years of not playing each other, but it ain't happening in  2015.

 

Oh, and fuck ECU, too. Fucking purple pirates. What kind of color is purple for pirates!? Fuck you, ECU. (We shouldn't be losing to fucking ECU. But it keeps happening. God, we're so low-mid-tier now.)

 

But hey, I got the NFL!! ....ech, goddammit

 

As for self-VT-hating, after more than a decade of developing superlative running backs on a regular basis, the past few years no one has abandoned the run quicker than VT. If there's three run plays for no gain or less in the first quarter, no matter the score it's nothing but pass pass pass and trickeration. I miss the days of BAM up the middle for 3 to 6 whenever we wanted. Now everything's 20 yds sideways praying for an edge or gap, or praying for pass pro that's worse every year.

 

Oh, and our backup QB got his shoulder likely sprained, precisely NOT in time for Brewer to come back. Couldn't Motley get injured next week, at least? So now I can see either (i) Motley playing "with pain" and doing no one any good and himself probably worse, (ii) our Great Hope But Not This Year Lawson coming in to start too soon and getting shattered either physically or mentally (or ii b, living up to his hype, but I'm not entertaining that -- yay QB controversy in a 3-loss-so-far season), or (iii) Brewer returning from his collarbone fracture too soon, again only fucking himself and the team. Hokie hokie hokie, hi, hooray for VPI

On the bright side, my Saturdays are wide open for the rest of the year.

Sarkisian suspended for showing up drunk at today's practice. The InsideUSC Twitter feed is filled with alarming info - https://twitter.com/InsideUSC

 

Also,I turned the Tennessee-Georgia game off when Georgia was up 24-3. For the good of the team, I'm never watching Tennessee play again.

Your turning off the tv went straight to Nick Chubb's ligaments.

post #30 of 94

As much as he tormented Tennessee, I'll miss the heck out of Steve Spurrier. Enjoy your tee times, HBC.

post #31 of 94

Has there been any explanation as to why he's not at least finishing out the season?  Something this quick feels like either a health issue or him getting out before some kind of hammer falls.

post #32 of 94
Thread Starter 

So Will Grier suspended for the year AND Spurrier retires on the same day? Ugh.

 

Florida owes everything ... and I mean EVERYTHING ... to Spurrier. If he had not taken over that program in 1990 and taken it to the proverbial next level, they'd still be on the level of the likes of Mississippi State and Iowa. I think people sometimes lose sight of that (Florida fans certainly do) and even the success he had at South Carolina, though not quite to the level he had at UF, was a hell of a lot better than South Carolina ever had in its past. Yes he's 70 and maybe he's lost touch a bit but they better have someone in mind else they'll slip back to 6-6 each year and getting rolled yearly by Clemson.

 

I hear Ron Zook is available.

post #33 of 94

Many consider Spurrier's brief NFL stint as a failure. I've now come around to think of them as the wellspring from which flows some of my favorite pro sports anecdotes.

 

Quote:
“Marty was the only guy that literally I think almost all of us would run through a wall for,” Tucker said. “I mean, he could just get the hair on the back of your neck standing up. He was awesome....But then the next year Spurrier comes in and we go to Dickinson for training camp and his opening meeting was, ‘You know men, I played 12 years in the NFL and went to 12 of these here training camps and I can’t remember one darn good thing I ever got out of it. But you know what, Mr. Snyder wants us to be here, so let’s try to get something done.’ ”

 

Hopefully he's not too old for a part time studio gig, cause I'm gonna miss the O'l Ball Coach's pressers.

post #34 of 94

I hated Spurrier when he was at UF until I realized, he's playing the heel here. It's nothing personal. He knows how to get the "pop" as they say in wrestling. And he was great at it. I think being an in-studio guy will be right up his alley, where I look forward to many more zingers. I think I've posted it before, but one of my favorite HBC stories told from Doug Johnson on the radio when he was a QB here with the Falcons (and I'm paraphrasing):

 

Doug Johnson -- "I had just thrown an interception against Vandy or someone like that...I came the sidelines, and Steve walked over to me and said, 'That's my fault. That's my fault. I'm the one that recruited you and expected you to be good.'"

 

That was just awesome.

Bad day to be a college coach in Florida:  Al Golden fired by Miami, and George O'Leary resigns as UCF coach.  

post #40 of 94

Those refs really fucked Duke not once but twice.  I wish they could give Duke the win.  The replay showed his knew was down after the clock was at zero.  Not sure what the big deal is too that.  They should make rules to correct this.

post #41 of 94

ACC has suspended all the officials in that game--on field and in the booth--for 2 games. It pains me to say Ron Cherry's group is the best set of officials in the league. As a whole, the ACC officials are abysmal. In the FSU/Syracuse game yesterday, the Syracuse QB threw a pass in between two WRs, and the deeper WR just grabbed the FSU safety and tackled him while the ball was in the air. Didn't even turn around and look at the ball. And it was right in front of a ref. No flag. And then Spielman every 2 seconds started saying "There's missed call on FSU. There's another missed call on FSU." And the head official could barely talk when he did go up to announce a penalty. Once he said, "After the play was over, holding on #55 on the offense". Uh, what?

post #42 of 94

Add the Big 10 officials who just fucked up a game in a big way.

 

And Fournette appears to be human.

post #43 of 94

Theoretically I don't mind the committee setting up the dominoes so that an undefeated or one loss Big 10 champ and a one loss Big 12 champ get in, but... it still rankles that ND is dropped over Oklahoma at this point.  According to the committee ND has wins against #15 and #25, and a close road loss to the #1 team in the country.  Oklahoma has wins over #7 and #17 and a terrible loss to a common opponent ND crushed (plus both Baylor and TCU were playing their backup QBs.)  So, resume-wise, I think ND has the edge.  And to top it off, the committee has Stanford ranked ahead of Oklahoma State at the moment, so ND has a tougher game coming up too.

 

Now, bear in mind, I do not think ND is a great team by any means, especially with all their injuries.  They're probably more likely to lose on the road at Stanford than win.  But if they do win, they have the better resume according to the committee's rankings, as far as I see it.

post #44 of 94

Yeah, I thought Oklahoma was going to jump ND after beating OK State, but it seems odd to move them up now.

 

In "teams with no chance of making the playoffs" news, Tennessee is now 7-4 after those four gut-ripping losses. Looking at 9-4 if they win out, which I think most Vol fans would have been good with at the start of the season. Those losses will sting forever, though, especially considering we were up at least 14-0 in each game.

post #45 of 94

My guess is that, with the committee having Stanford ranked higher than OK St. right now, if both win it would have been even more difficult to justify OU jumping the Irish next week.  But they're projecting ahead because they want a "true" one loss Big 12 champ in- so instead they penalize ND for the final score of the BC game, which wasn't great, but BC was never going to win that game.  Despite five turnovers and another key player going down, ND was up 19-3 well into the fourth quarter.  The game was over.  BC got two cosmetic touchdowns.

post #46 of 94

I think ND is being penalized more for not being in a conference and therefore having no conference championship game to look forward to playing in.  It's like the committee is downgrading them now to avoid doing it later when their season is over but other teams are playing their championship games.

Exactly.  Just like the Big 12 is penalized for not having a championship game.  ND gets enough credit for being ND.  They have beat nobody this year.  They have a quality loss but without a signature win then there are much more deserving teams.

 

They really just need to cut 1 game in the regular season and have an 8 team playoff.  5 power conf. and 3 at large.

 

 

Hahahaha,.  Now ND fans don't have to bitch about the rankings.  They lost to Stanford.  A team Northwestern handled easily. 

 

Go Wildcats btw.  2nd time in school history they won 10 games before the Bowl.  Should get in a quality game.

post #48 of 94
The loss stings, but ND wasn't going to the playoff no matter what after the Bedlam result. And they don't deserve it. The complaint was that they should have been ranked ahead of OU going into this week, not that they were a slam dunk playoff team.

Your "so and so lost to a team another team handled easily" thing means shit. Stanford is a top ten team, and there's no shame in losing to them at the last second on the road. Granted, some ND fans are delusional about where they belong, but a top fifteen ranking to end the regular season is far from awful. The idea they beat nobody is dumb, unless there are only 6-8 teams of any quality in a given year. Their two losses are both at the gun, on the road, by a combined four points against two of the top ten teams in the country. They'll get a decent bowl game. I said to start the season I'd be fine with two losses, and after all the injured players I didn't even think they'd get there.
post #49 of 94
Who did they beat?
 
Texas: 4-7 Sucks
Virginia: 4-8 Really Sucks
Georgia Tech: 3-9 Ugg
UMass: 3-9 They have a team?
Navy: 9-2  The first win against a team with a winning record and it comes from a military academy. 
USC: 8-4 Semi quality.  USC just fired their HC. 
Temple: 10-2  Maybe if this was basketball.
Pitt: 8-4 Another weak ass ACC school.
Wake Forest: 3-9  Another basketball school
Boston College: 3-9
 
Those are the wins.  They beat 4 teams with winning records and 3 of those were in weak ass divisions and the other USC was in turmoil when they played.  When they made the schedule Texas, USC looked better but that's the problem when not in a Conference.  Sometimes you miss on the schedule.  And when that happens you are fucked.  In a Conference you'll always get 3 to 4 good to great teams and you'll get to face at least 2 of them for your resume. 
 
And I don't buy injuries.  This is college and the top teams get the best 3/4/5 star recruits.  Ohio State won on their 3rd QB.  ND is always stacked.  They may not get the Alabama players, but they are always top 20.
 
ND, BYU, and Army are the 3 hold outs for joining a Conference.  I really want to see ND be forced into joining one.  I really want it to be the Big 10 but I'll settle for the weak ass ACC.
post #50 of 94
What the hell are you even on about, Anya? What are you arguing against? I know who they played. You can pick apart most team's schedules. They're not deserving of a top ten ranking right now. I only brought up the injuries with regard to my own personal expectations. I'm saying as much as the loss hurts, it is about what I expected from them this year, so I can't be too upset. And, while I have been an ND fan for over thirty years (I'm a man, I'm 40) I have never had any sort of attachment to their independent status. I don't care if they join a conference or not.
