NCAA Football Week 10 Early Live Thread

LSU Can Shake Up The SEC With A Win In Alabama [NCAA Football Early Live Thread]

11/7/09 in NCAAF   |   Pat   |   5146 respect

The biggest game out of the early games definitely has to be #9 LSU and #3 Alabama. This game is basically a National Championship elimination game, since the winner has a chance to play for the BCS Title if they win out, while the loser will likely be sitting at home. Another huge game is the Big 10 matchup between #16 Ohio State and #11 Penn State. It's bigger for Iowa than it is for either of these teams, though. If Penn State wins, Iowa virtually clinches the conference championship, barring an inexplicable loss to someone like Northwestern or Minnesota. Here's today's schedule:

12:00
#21 Wisconsin vs Indiana
Syracuse vs #13 Pittsburgh [ESPNU]
UCF vs #2 Texas
Northwestern vs #4 Iowa [ESPN]
Virginia vs #17 Miami

2:30
Navy vs #22 Notre Dame [NBC]

3:30
Washington State vs #18 Arizona
#8 Oregon vs Stanford
Wake Forest vs #10 Georgia Tech [ABC]
#19 Oklahoma State vs Iowa State [ABC]
#16 Ohio State vs #11 Penn State [ABC]
#9 LSU vs #3 Alabama [CBS]

4:00

#6 TCU vs San Diego State

Ok then four true road games, plus a game in San Antonio that they got to bring in about 30 recruits from Texas watch them beatdown Washington St.

I was thinking it was similar to the situation next year when Oklahoma plays Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium. It is a road game but since it isn't "at" Cincinnati then it wouldn't be a "true" road game.

Yes, he's a freshman. So? Don't argue historical precedent. That's an invalid reason.
Yes, he's a running back. Last time I looked, I thought the Heisman showed a running back (or maybe a receiver) in action moving down the field, not a quarterback dropping back to pass.
And as far as the Big East, well...I'm a bit biased there, and I think they're stronger than they get credit for. We'll have to wait for the dust to settle on bowl season. Another 3-0 debacle by Pitt though, and I won't have much to stand on.

Dwyer and Spiller both have pretty good stats, and should get a look as well. And you're spot on with the media trying to tip it to Tebow. I like Tebow, a lot, both as a player and as a person, but I don't think his play this year has been Heisman caliber. Sure, he should be in the discussion, but if he plays the way he has been, he doesn't deserve to win it

What Pat said. Dion Lewis is legit, but the media has their ways of ignoring that. I think that everyone who's seen Lewis play even a series of football this year has become a fan of his. Pretty amazing that he was completely overlooked in recruiting.

I should already know this, but does Notre Dame just have nothing but home games? I don't recall one this season, unless the Mich St. was away..

Lol at Navy's first half stats. 190 yards rushing, -1 yards passing. Love the triple option.

I don't think Kantwistaye is saying that's why Lewis SHOULDN'T get Heisman talk, I think he was saying that's why he doesn't. Whether it's fair or not, those biases exist.

Personally, I think the race is wide open and my leaders would be Jonathon Dwyer and CJ Spiller, but Dion Lewis has had a wonderful year as well.  Unfortunately, it looks like the media is trying to slowly spin it towards Tebow.  After last week I saw a few articles supporting him for Heisman.  This will slowly build until he's finally the favorite and we're all left wondering how the heck that happened.

If Ricky Stanzi going down is something that completely deflates your team, you probably weren't that good to start with.  Stanzi is a turnover machine (except, of course, when he played my Badgers).

HAHA, Paulus was actually putting a decent drive together, and he just killed it by throwing another pick.

*yawn* Pitt kicks another FG, 30-3 with 11 minutes to play.

That pick-6 was the turning point in the game

Refs miss an obvious pass interference call which halts Illinois' great drive.  They settle for a field goal and miss.... two steps forward, 3 steps back

Kentucky's only up 10-6 on EKU. Where's Randall Cobb when you need him?

Yeah, can't quite figure out how we haven't put this game away yet. We've clearly been the better team, but Indiana makes just enough plays to stay in. Hopefully we limit them to a FG and go down and score a TD and end this game.

Jacob Charest... where have you been all my life... How refreshing to see a quarterback actually hit his receivers in stride

Purdue back on top 31-30 in the 3rd quarter LOL!

Illinois with another goal line stand... Minnesota kicks a field goal after having the ball 1st and goal from the 1.  Illinois 28-10 halfway thru the 3rd quarter

Today's top story from the no-surprise department, Pitt is murdering Syracuse.  They just scored another TD on a 2-play, 75-yard drive, 26-3 Panthers pending the PAT.

Dadburn!!! Great defensive play by Perdue, and they scored on 1 Offensive play after that! Perdue right back in it!

11/7/09   |   Scott   |   49542 respect

Terry Hawthorne with a great defensive play for the 2nd straight week, Jacob Charest slinging the ball all over the Minnesota secondary and Mikel Leshoure solidfying the running game... damn the future for Illinois football looks bright.  If only Ron Zook could learn how to coach in game and do it consistently

Yeah, I'm for your first thought.  I'm tired of the Iowa (we can barely beat average teams) story.  Go Northwestern.  Watch Iowa score a late touchdown and win by a point or two.

Nice to see Illinois carrying over the momentum from last week's blowout of Michigan to today's game against Minnesota.  Juice Williams is out with an ankle injury, Jacob Charest soldifying his spot as next year's starter by leading the Illini down for a touchdown... 21-7 Illinois

WOW... the Big Ten quarterbacks collectively are awful passers

11/7/09   |   Scott   |   49542 respect

Iowa with another turnover... just how many times are they going to be able to escape?

11/7/09   |   celticfc411   |   51 respect

And according to the referees in the Iowa game, tackling is now a personal foul

Michigan 24-10, WR Roy Rountree is having a great day.

If the Badgers had a decent QB that didn't throw ducks 75% of the time, I firmly believe we would've taken the Big Ten this year. #1 in rushing offense and rushing defense should always equal contending for a conference title.

Down goes Stanzi...is their ridiculous run of luck over?

Shocker! Major shootout in Ann Arbor. Michigan leads Perdue, 17-10.

11/7/09   |   celticfc411   |   51 respect

Pitt needs to get it going and find the end zone. Don't let a team like Syracuse hang around
