NCAA Football Week 11 Primetime Live Thread

The Little Guy Gets Screwed Again. Tonight's Best Game Isn't On National TV. [NCAA Football Late Live Thread]

11/14/09 in NCAAF   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

The TCU-Utah game should have huge National Championship implications... but since TCU isn't a BCS school, they'll get no respect again. They're playing THE best football in the country, but it doesn't matter, because they're in a non-BCS conference. Here's the schedule:


7:00
#17 Arizona vs California
Auburn vs Georgia [ESPN2]
Louisiana Tech vs #8 LSU [ESPNU]
#2 Alabama vs Mississippi State [ESPN]

7:30
#16 Utah vs #4 TCU

8:00
Texas Tech vs #19 Oklahoma State [ABC]
Notre Dame vs #12 Pittsburgh [ABC]

10:20
Arizona State vs #13 Oregon [ESPN]

 Even though USC got destroyed, here's some great news, Stefan Johnson was able to speak to his teammates.  It was in a raspy voice, but he spoke nonetheless.

Well like I said earlier we sure can't upset any SEC team and tell them some one from the Mountain West  Conference is better than they are. They are not real big on the truth or getting things right in that conference.

Yes TCU is as good as any team in the country better then Florida or Bamma well we will see, more then likely they will get who ever loses the SEC championship. They way Florida is playing right now we probably lose, Bamma would be a toss up. The only thing I can say is they haven't faced defenses anywhere close to what they will face in Bamma and Florida, but then again I don't think we have faced an offense like there's either. Should be a good game and as a Gator fan and a SEC fan I will be hoping and praying we come out on top.

Great game and great season TCU you deserve to be where you are and good luck to you.

 Arizona State scored a TD, Oregon fumbled the kickoff return and AZ State made them pay, we have a game again in Eugene.

Thank God that Pitt won that game.  They had me scared there for a bit

Well, I wasn't being serious but yes you're right.  If they win their next two they get that bid regardless of what happened tonight.  Still, makes them look better.

Betcha Pitt wishes they had that NC State game back.  Cincy/Pitt could be for a potential NC bid in a few weeks instead of "just" the Big East title.

 I know it does, just pointing out that for Pitt, this game really meant nothing in terms of the BCS.  I know they wish they had that NC State game back, they had that game in hand and blew it.

That review call was just wrong.  There seriously has to be a national conspiracy to protect potential BCS teams because that was a pass.  It wasn't even close to a fumble.

At least Pitt was probably going to win anyway, but still that is an unbelievable call.

 And so the Pittsburgh teams remain perfect at home this weekend.

 Looks like Pitt is going to hang on.

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 HOLY S***!  Pitt got a gift there, even I'll admit that was an incomplete pass.

 I was hoping they'd call that chop block.

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 I don't see where you can overturn that catch.

And then come back and bobble the 2 pt conversion..Geez o pete!

 The Pens game went down to the wire, why should the Pitt game be any different?

(Edited by kramer)

 Tate returns the punt for a TD, down to a 5-point game with a failed 2-point conversion.  Pitt needs to score now.

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 Irish score again, still a 2 possession game.  The clock is Pitt's friend right now.

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Ouch, the camera man just got leveled in the end zone.

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Hey, look at that, the Panthers are playing like the Steelers a couple years ago on 3rd and long, that's grrrreat!

/sarcasm

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Dion Lewis found the hole for 50 yards and the score, Pitt answers right back!

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

TD Irish, but what a failure on the PAT.

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Irish are trying to punch it in, 3rd and goal from the 1 to start the 4th quarter.

Last I saw it was 41-14 TCU

Irish had to punt, lousy punt again, and Ray Graham runs it all the way down to the 2 on a beautiful rush for the Panthers...TD as I type this, 20-3 Pitt!

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Speaking of the Panthers, another FG gives them a 13-3 lead.

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Pitt will also make a BCS Bowl if they beat Cincy.

Nice post Pat.

The BCS is BS but TCU will be in a BCS bowl and so wil Cincy if they can beat Pitt and win the Big East.

Cincy has to play Pitt at the end of the season, that's not a guaranteed win at all.

If everyone got screwed as much as the non-BCS schools, we'd have world peace.

Jonathan Baldwin just made 2 incredible back-to-back catches, the 2nd was even more impressive than the first, and it was for the TD, 10-3 Panthers retake the lead.

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

ND ties it with a FG of their own, this is nuts right now.  Both the Pens and Panthers are tied at the same score, 3-3.

 

11/14/09   |   redsox1002003   |   881 respect

35-14 TCU leads. so much for Utah being a challenge.

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Holly picks off Clausen!

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Clausen got a completion off, but his knee was down, 14-yard sack and a drive killer for the Irish on their first position.

Pitt gets on the board first with a FG, the botched punt block attempt cost the Irish.

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Ruth-roh, ND tried to block the punt and instead took Hutchins's legs out from under him, Pitt keeps the ball.

Utah and TCU all tied up 7-7 with 4:48 left in the first quarter.

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Dion Lewis just got a huge hit behind the line of scrimmage, but ended up shaking it off for an 8-yard gain.

 

11/14/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Could not have timed this any better, the first period of the Pens/Bruins game ended a second before kickoff.

 

11/14/09   |   Joe_L   |   12372 respect

Yea well we wouldn't want to blackout one of those honest, fair, great reffing  SEC games. Sarcasm if you couldn't tell.

11/14/09   |   BigTone2475   |   326 respect

All though I agree with on this I just knew it had to be you when I saw the headline. LOL

i guess versus needs something to put in between the hockey and ufl games and hunting shows.
