NCAA Football Week 3 Late Live Thread

Does Texas Tech Stand A Chance Without Crabtree? Probably Not. [NCAA Football Late Live Thread]

9/19/09 in NCAAF   |   Pat   |   5234 respect

Last year, the Texas vs Texas Tech game was one of the best games of the year. Michael Crabtree scored the game-winning TD, and the loss ended up costing Texas the chance to play in the BCS Championship game. Now, the Red Raiders are without Crabtree, and Crabtree is still without an NFL contract, and Mike Leach probably wishes he never left, especially since he may re-enter next year's draft anyway. But Texas Tech will have to see how they can do without him as they play a huge conference game against Texas today.

Here's the schedule of the nationally televised games, and the games involving ranked teams:

6:45

#17 Cincinnati vs Oregon State

7:00
La-Lafayette vs #9 LSU
Rice vs #16 Oklahoma State
Florida State vs #7 BYU
Texas State vs #15 TCU

7:30
SE Louisiana vs #5 Mississippi

7:45
West Virginia vs Auburn [ESPN2]
#23 Georgia vs Arkansas [ESPN]

8:00
Texas Tech vs #2 Texas [ABC]

Cant believe this is the same Florida State team that almost lost to Jacksonville State last week.  The Seminoles are completely manhandling BYU, up 44-14 with just over 5 minutes left in the 3rd quarter.  Guess Boise State moves to the front of the class as far as BCS busters go

I can't believe it is the same BYU team that beat Oklahoma. I guess BYU started believing its own hype.

I hate Jordan Shipley. Hate him with a fire that burns deep in me.

Michigan transfer/Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett looks pretty freaking good.  If the review holds up, the Razorbacks are up 21-10 in the first quarter.

One fly in the preverbial ointment went down today (Utah), and BYU is down 27-14 near the half.

BCS purist everywhere are rejoicing.

I love it when Notre Dame loses, same goes for USC.  That win by Washington today was beautiful.

Thanks. I wasn't sure, I thought somewhere along the line, I had seen a picture of all ND's helmets lined up to be painted. Couldn't find it again!

Well ND actually paints real, actual melted down gold onto each of their helmets every week.

9/19/09   |   tpowell25   |   1627 respect

I'm going to have to get new batteries for my remote at least 3 times tonight.  There are about 6 good games on right now.

9/19/09   |   Jubanator14   |   367 respect

Wouldn't it be great if since Crabtree isn't doing anything, he came out of the tunnel before the game tonight like a WWF/Movie villain and lead Tech to a victory?

I asked this question in the other thread and no one answered me. My inquiring mind wants to know:

Do these teams repaint their helmets every week, or do they just use a new one? Just asking cos some of the helmets I have seen today are pretty battle scarred.

I am pretty sure that all of the big time programs just get new helmets every other week or so.

I know I will sound like a homer....but Oklahoma has the best defense in the country. Shut out Tulsa today, held BYU to 14 points. Texas, Florida, Alabama, Penn St., or Mississippi can't claim that.

ROTFL..I like McCoy, and gotta root for my best friends team, I am hoping my Gators will get a chance to meet them in the BCS Championship Game! I hate FSU, interstate riivalry. Been watching ND since Montana played.

What can I say Pat? Who are your NFL teams..oh NM, I remember...LOL

I hate Notre Dame, and I hate anything and everything in the state of Texas... but I hate Texas Tech a lot less than I hate Texas.
