  1. SMU vs Memphis.  UGLY.  No one wants to win.

  2. I SWORE I was watching Jamal Lord out there today.

      They were just a few short side options (and a punt returner) away....

      @JJ Husker I counted three drops that could have been game changers in the third quarter. I think had we done ANYTHING to disrupt the momentum in the third and everything changes. Love the team, love the hustle, love that they're playing their hearts out right now. I think we just had some bad luck with both RBs being beat up and some drops.

      Obviously everything changes. Do we win? Idk, it's more likely. Everything after that changes though, so who knows.

      @ScottyIce Hey, no qualifying your hypothetical. :lol:

  4. According to this article, someone was awfully sure Frost was going to coach the Gators.  :laughpound https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-football/scott-frost-heir-apparent-florida-nebraska-tennessee/

      Right now according to 24/7 Nebraska is 28th and Florida is 21st.  Not a great deal of separation there.

      To be honest, I was very concerned he wasn't coming here for all the same reasons that article pointed out.  That was without the SEC bias that this site obviously has.  Rationally, it made a lot of sense for him to stay in Florida which makes me that much more thankful he is here.

      Never a concern from me, thanks to @Hedley Lamarr

  5. Are the recently departed players completely dropping out of school or just quitting the team but still enrolled?

    1. ZRod

      ZRod

      I believe they have to remain enrolled to maintain eligibility.

      Actually I retract my previous statement. I don't think they have to be enrolled unless there is a conference rule that says they ha e to. Nothing I read says they have to be in school after they want to transfer, just that the 5 year clock is always ticking.

  6. This would be a good time for a Riley-esque upset.

      I was thinking the same thing as I drove home yesterday afternoon and heard Matt say we go to Madison next Saturday.

  9. Why can't we get something super sexy for turnovers like FSU's "Turnover Backpack".

      A real ear of corn, and the guy who got the turnover has to eat it. Floss and toothpicks on standby.

      What about a turnover combine? Whoever gets the turnover gets to drive the combine up and down the field on east stadium.

  10. Feels great to have anticipation for a game again.  Last few years it's kind of felt like a chore to keep my obligation as a fan.

      I concur, so dilly dilly.  Tiwards the end of last season I didnt even set my alarm clock for the early games and if I overslept and missed the start of the game it was like oh well.  This year im on here an hour bwfore the game with a countdown going.

      It's not that I think Burrow sucks.  I think LSU just doesn't develop them well or have good game plans for any of their QB's.  Burrow is better than what he's showing, I know he is.  And yeah, he's not looked overly terrible the past few drives.

    3. krc1995

      I’m not sure if the refs aren’t in on it. Feels like the game not being played on the field

      Burrows getting some talk from the booth but he's currently 10/23 for 133 yards and no TDs.  That's pretty pedestrian.

      @teachercd it gets worse. She said she was going to the boneyard bash......and then to a party.:o And she met a football player on Friday. 1 week, 1 week and things are headed for trouble fast :lol:

      Haha!  JJ...I remember a few months ago when you said the old "She might party...but I doubt it...she really isn't like that"  Haha!  Time for some home schooling!

  13. I hope my fellow Pennsylvanians are staying dry.

  14. On the Big Red Wrap-Up page it names hosts Kevin Kugler and Jay Moore.  No more Blake??  Can't seem to find any verification of that.  Anyone?

      According to this report Blake is still going to be with Big Red Wrap Up (Although this report is from April of this year.  I couldn't find anything that said he had left?

      I'm pretty sure that when Jay was on Sharp and Benning, they discussed him being on BRW. 

  15. I'm convinced RTB is a product of a 3 way with Riley, Diaco, and a televangelist.

      Never understood his year 0 campaign.  He took over a program with a lot of momentum that was coming off a bowl victory over wash st. They had talent and were competing in the West.  

  16. The last step of erasing the last 3 years from my memory:  accepted a job offer to return to the same job (sorta) I left 3 years ago to work for the company from hell.

      I thought it would have had something to do with a lot of 180 proof booze and a friend who watched some medical shows. To each he's own Dilly.

      Well, another year of Riley and another year of this joke of a job, and i would have!

  17. Is this the year we have our first 1000 yard receiver?

      Interesting question, @huKSer - i went in search of, and found an article that said us and VaTech were the only P5 to never have had a 1000 yard receiver, but the article was three years old and i am too lazy to see if they had one happen since 2015.

    3. famoustitles

      @Dilly Dilly I just looked VT had a 1000 yard receiver in ‘15 and ‘16.

      Grandma Snyder is a good one, i agree.  The rest of them are made to look a little creepy, with old man pornstaches.

  20. Pitbull putting on a pretty good show in Philly right now.  Best of all, I can watch from my air conditioned living room and not deal with those crowds or the heat/humidity/storms.

  21. When prepping a house for later sale, would one touch up paint that already exists, or repaint everything white and let new home owner pick what to change to?

      I think we got 6 complete sets (3 from each mint) collected.  I don’t recall Nebraska being a tough one but quite a few from the Philly mint were hard to come by around here.

      Philly was prolly easier around here, since, well, we live and work < 75 miles away.

  25. What kind of projecting power would it take to do something like this video (Phila Flyers), on to a football field?

      I believe these are laser projectors and the cheapest is about 25k.  Betting something for a football field is probably in the 500k to 1 mil and would probably need about 10 of them.  I have a buddy who does it for the Golden Knights and they spent in the 15 mil range.  The software and hardware to run it in sync costs a pretty penny in itself.
