Miami doinking a game-winning field goal warms the heart.

Gruesome knee injury for Dontay Demus in Iowa-Maryland. Fumbled as a result to add insult.

And the Hawkeyes promptly cash it in.

Posted in the old thread. Not sure how iowa recovered the fumble after the interception as 2 maryland players were on the ball before an iowa player got a hand in.
   4. Barry`s_Lazy_Boy Posted: October 01, 2021 at 10:00 PM (#6042926)
The Demus injury ended the night for the Maryland program.

On the INT-fumble, Belton stole the ball away in a very small pile.

I hate Michigan's blue pants. There's nothing wrong with the look in a vacuum, but it's not Michigan.
   6. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 12:41 PM (#6042977)
But the fleaflicker looks good in any duds.
   7. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 12:59 PM (#6042981)
Arkansas getting overwhelmed. The 17-0 start last week was shocking and impressive in the moment, but its offense didn't do much outside of the two long touchdowns, one of which was largely the result of lazy A&M tackling, so I certainly didn't expect it was going to win or come especially close, but I didn't expect things to be this embarrassing this quickly.

Tennessee up 35-10 on Missouri early in the second quarter, just scoring thanks to some atrociously poor tackling by Missouri on a 3rd and 12 WR screen. I would not have bet on Tennessee being capable of scoring 35 points in any two SEC games this season.
   9. Starring Bradley Scotchman as RMc Posted: October 02, 2021 at 03:38 PM (#6043006)
I hate Michigan's blue pants.

They keep playing like this, and the other teams will hate seeing them, too...
   10. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 03:45 PM (#6043008)
Cincinnati picks off Buchner -- rotating in for Coan, who'd thrown an interception deep in Cincinnati territory on the first drive -- and return it inside the 10, then score on 3rd-and-goal from the one off a play fake. Notre Dame muffs the ensuing kickoff, setting up the Bearcats at the 18, but they settle for a field goal after having a touchdown wiped out by an ineligible man downfield. 10-0, mid second quarter.
   11. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 03:56 PM (#6043010)
Looked like Mississippi got a bad spot on the third down preceding the fourth-down stop. And I don't like the grounding call. Gene Steratore called the pass "clearly uncatchable," but there's no requirement for a throwaway from the pocket to be catchable; just in the vicinity of a receiver, which it was.

was it the same SEC officiating crew that was at penn state-auburn two weeks ago? or are phantom intentional grounding penalties just an SEC thing in general?
   13. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 04:10 PM (#6043014)
Cincinnati in the two-minute drill, Ridder makes a terrible throw, short and to the inside, on a corner route, but his receiver brilliantly adjusts to make the catch. 17-0 with 40 seconds left in the half.
   14. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 04:33 PM (#6043019)
Downs-downs-punt for Mississippi, while the Alabama offense has gone through it like a hot knife through butter twice. About ready to write "Game over" in my notebook.
   15. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 04:40 PM (#6043021)
If you have a kicker who only makes half his kicks, feel free to go for 4th-and-5 from the 12, Fickell.
   16. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 04:43 PM (#6043023)
Oh, ####. Stanford leading Oregon 10-7 and driving, and Brycen Tremayne just got his ankle dislocated on a catch over the middle.
   17. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 04:51 PM (#6043026)
Seems like it must be a pretty terrible injury when the ESPN guys see the replay in the booth and both immediately go, "Oh no, no, don't watch that, we're not going to show that."
   18. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 04:51 PM (#6043027)
His foot was turned sideways past 90 degrees. It was awful.
   19. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 04:58 PM (#6043029)
Notre Dame drives to the Cincinnati 30 but turns the ball over on downs after miscommunication on 4th-and-5.


Box score makes it look like K-State is dominating Oklahoma -- 230-95 yardage advantage -- but it's 10-10 late in the second quarter.
   20. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 05:00 PM (#6043030)
K-State had a long drive ending in a fumble that was returned 70 yards to set up a field goal. So that's the story there.


And Ridder fumbles inside the Notre Dame 25, returned to Cincinnati territory.
   21. bunyon Posted: October 02, 2021 at 05:06 PM (#6043031)
OU has done this all year, rely on big plays to make up for getting outplayed/evenly played. They could easily be 2-2 today. Should be beating KState by 50.
   22. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 05:17 PM (#6043034)
Looked like the worm might be turning in South Bend, as Notre Dame scored a touchdown off the short field behind Pyne, then Cincinnati went three-and-out.

But Notre Dame goes three-and-out itself after a drop of what would've been at least a 25-yard gain over the middle on second down.
   23. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 05:24 PM (#6043036)
Cincinnati sets itself up at the Notre Dame 25 with a 44-yard completion but ends up honking another kick instead of going for 4th-and-4 from the 19.

17-7 with 11:28 left.
   24. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 05:46 PM (#6043040)
Troy and South Carolina locked in a tight game, but South Carolina blocks a punt -- by which I mean a USC player pushed a Troy player back into the punter's lap, and the punt hit him in the back of the helmet.
   25. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:00 PM (#6043044)
This is officially the best shot the G5 has had since Houston, starting in the top ten after winning the Peach Bowl, knocked off Oklahoma to open the season and had a home win against Lamar Jackson's Louisville in its future.

The lesson is don't lose in conference play.
   26. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:01 PM (#6043045)
I didn't expect Arkansas to beat Georgia or anything, but 37-0 got my attention. Still, I can't say I'm shocked to see Arkansas suffer a hard reality check.

Similarly, not surprised to see a Lane Kiffin team turtle. I'm pretty sure Ole Miss is better than what they're showing today.

The ESPN ticker informs me that today was Harbaugh's first win as an underdog at Michigan, which makes me wonder - why on Earth was Wisconsin favored? I'm not a gambler but Christ, maybe I should be if it's that easy.

I know Kentucky is unbeaten and this is a road game for the Gators blah blah blah ... I don't want to hear it. Make it easy.

Oh and also, I always think Kentucky's field is so ugly. Literally a state famous for its grass and the big state school plays on that ####.
   27. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:07 PM (#6043048)
Everything about that punt made me mad, from the decision to punt in the first place, so the shoddy execution at the goal line.
   28. Meatwad Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:07 PM (#6043049)
If ND had started Pyne they win that game. Sucks but oh well.
   29. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:08 PM (#6043050)
Mullen really needs to start getting more aggressive on fourth and short. You're Florida, they're Kentucky, you have more talent and one of the best offenses in football.
   30. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:23 PM (#6043052)
Pretty perfect drive, including Richardson making a nice throw that wasn't just "chuck it down the field as far as you can in the general direction of a receiver."
   31. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:30 PM (#6043054)
Well. I don't like that.
   32. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:41 PM (#6043055)
Kentucky screen on 3rd and 9: so obvious that both Dan Orlovsky and Todd Grantham sniffed the playcall out beforehand.
   33. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:41 PM (#6043056)
Robinson showed some serious juice on that touchdown. Don't know how Scott Frost held him to nine yards per catch at Nebraska last year.
   34. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:46 PM (#6043057)
I feel like the little get together in this Behr commercial is absolutely ending with someone getting murdered.
   35. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:50 PM (#6043058)
Man, what's up with the O-line today? I'm starting to think that early road game at USF didn't adequately prepare this team for the rigors of playing in SEC stadiums like ... Kentucky.

Also, another chicken playcall by Mullen. If you want to run pinned deep on 3rd and long, why not throw Richardson in there?
   36. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:53 PM (#6043059)
Kentucky probably should have gone for that fourth down, honestly.
   37. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:55 PM (#6043060)
Since Stanford went up 17-7 in the second quarter, its offense has done absolutely nothing. Had multiple possessions with a chance to grow the lead, too, before Oregon finally got its act together.

Taking a little of the air out of my Cincinnati-to-the-top-four balloon.
   38. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 06:57 PM (#6043061)
Since Stanford went up 17-7 in the second quarter, its offense has done absolutely nothing. Had multiple possessions with a chance to grow the lead, too, before Oregon finally got its act together.

Have they done nothing as in, the Oregon defense woke up? Or nothing as in, intentionally doing nothing while sitting on a lead?
   39. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:00 PM (#6043062)
My early diagnosis in this game is that Richardson has neither the same immediate burst of speed nor the decisiveness as a runner that he had earlier in the year. Might just be the upgrade in competition, but he sure looks tentative to me.
   40. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:00 PM (#6043063)
As in, run for two yards, commit a penalty, throw an incomplete pass to set up 3rd-and-long, then run up the white flag and punt.
   41. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:02 PM (#6043064)
Every single time, I'm so happy to see the Fansville dad watch his prized possession get destroyed. Just knowing how agonizing it is to him, it warms my heart.
   42. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:06 PM (#6043065)
As in, run for two yards, commit a penalty, throw an incomplete pass to set up 3rd-and-long, then run up the white flag and punt.

Ah, the Muschamp/Pease offense. Are the incomplete passes on 2nd and long thrown 2 yards past the line of scrimmage, by any chance?
   43. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:08 PM (#6043067)
FSU did everything it could to blow multiple 10-point leads against Syracuse, but it eeks out the win with a field goal on the final play.

Travis played the whole game, and he again was asked to pass way too much. 131 yards on 32 attempts, plus an interception, while the run game was cooking with 247 yards on just 37 attempts.
   44. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:20 PM (#6043070)
Trailing 24-17 and backed up in its own end with two minutes left, Stanford completes a pass for 23 on 2nd-and-19, then McKee gets destroyed on an incomplete pass, with a booth review finding targeting on Thibodeaux.

McKee is back in after one play, despite having been laid out on the field for a couple minutes. And a roughing penalty moves the ball to the 17 with 37 seconds left.
   45. we all water; we all 57i66135 Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:22 PM (#6043071)
the last 2 minutes of this ####### game have taken half an hour.
   46. we all water; we all 57i66135 Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:23 PM (#6043072)
go for 2, you pussies.
   47. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:25 PM (#6043073)
Mullen again playing things way too conservatively.
   48. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:25 PM (#6043074)
What the hell was that? Mullen leaving points all over this field today.
   49. we all water; we all 57i66135 Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:31 PM (#6043076)
i don't always root for injury, but the rightful outcome to this game would be for every stanford lineman to have their knees explode in the next 5 minutes.
   50. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:53 PM (#6043083)
Announcers talking about a "completely different rule" between the NFL and college on that touchback, but of course it would have been a touchback either way since the Kentucky player touched it while both he and the ball were in the endzone.

I thought the no-call on the alleged PI was a good call too. But I think the PI call on Kentucky is a bad call. That's good coverage!
   51. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:56 PM (#6043084)
Yeah that was a lousy call on that PI on Kentucky.

Dumb penalty on Florida's offensive line. They could have had an easy first down with Kentucky's defense not even set.
   52. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:58 PM (#6043085)
Man, that was gross. Literally all they had to do was snap the ball and they had an easy first down.
   53. we all water; we all 57i66135 Posted: October 02, 2021 at 07:59 PM (#6043086)
Yeah that was a lousy call on that PI on Kentucky.
let me guess:

the defender didn't "turn his head"
   54. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:01 PM (#6043087)
let me guess:

the defender didn't "turn his head"

Well he actually pretty much did. Was good coverage, he made some contact slapping the ball away but that's supposed to be legal.
   55. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:06 PM (#6043088)
Unimpressive throw from AR15 there on that 3rd and 8 that didn't count. Had a WR open, and just bounced it in there.
   56. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:07 PM (#6043089)
Well ####.
   57. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:07 PM (#6043091)
Play scared to set up a long field goal attempt and look what happens.
   58. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:08 PM (#6043092)
This O-line has just been terrible tonight. They've been so great all year but tonight they're getting pushed around like it's 2019 again. And then all the penalties on top of that.

Good lord and now this. At least KY missed the PAT.
   59. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:09 PM (#6043094)
You get a blocked kick! And YOU get a blocked kick!
   60. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:17 PM (#6043096)
I hate playing Kentucky so much more than I ought to given that they've only lost one game against them in the past 100 years or something.
   61. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:20 PM (#6043098)
The games against Kentucky during the Mike Stoops years have all gotten really annoying and dramatic, last year being the exception.
   62. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:22 PM (#6043099)
UF's receivers aren't bad, but they're definitely lacking a go-to guy or explosive threat. When Trent Whittemore is your best bet on a must-have third and three, that's problematic.
   63. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:24 PM (#6043100)
It goes back even further though - there were a couple annoying ones during the Spurrier Era too (Wuerrfel to Doering!), and of course all kinds of ridiculous drama in the Zook and Muschamp years too. I don't remember a dumb one in the Meyer years but I'm probably just forgetting one.

I'm pretty afraid they're going down tonight, though. This one's had bad vibes about it from the start.
   64. we all water; we all 57i66135 Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:25 PM (#6043101)
UF's receivers aren't bad, but they're definitely lacking a go-to guy or explosive threat. When Trent Whittemore is your best bet on a must-have third and three, that's problematic.
they're not great blockers, either.
   65. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:25 PM (#6043102)
UF's receivers aren't bad, but they're definitely lacking a go-to guy or explosive threat. When Trent Whittemore is your best bet on a must-have third and three, that's problematic.

This is true but it was also a poor throw, up at Whittemore's head where it was hard for him to pull it in without it getting swatted away. A throw to the body probably gets it done.
   66. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:28 PM (#6043104)
The 2007 game was pretty intense -- that was the year UF had a terrible defense, post-championship, and Kentucky had Andre Woodson and some really good receivers. But Meyer's teams generally smothered Kentucky without much drama.
   67. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:31 PM (#6043105)
That was pretty much exactly as creative a playcall as I'd expect from a Stoops team with the game perhaps on the line.
   68. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:32 PM (#6043106)
You know, for as angry as UK was about those two pass interference calls at the beginning of the half, penalties have really been a boon for them tonight.
   69. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:35 PM (#6043107)
Well that wasn't ideal.
   70. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:39 PM (#6043109)
So Kentucky got an amazing unKentucky-like break when they botched a shotgun snap and converted the first down on the play anyway, and then have to burn their 2nd timeout when no one has any idea what play they're running next. That's the one reason the Gators might still win this game - no matter how poorly the Gators are playing, UK will refuse until the very end to make things easier for themselves. It is just their way.
   71. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:44 PM (#6043110)
Florida was trailing by two scores in the fourth quarter at UK a couple years ago when Franks got hurt and Trask had his big spotlight moment and led the comeback. So, um, is there a Kyle Trask in the house?
   72. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:52 PM (#6043111)
That QB draw seemed like the first run play all night where it felt like there were actual open lanes.
   73. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:58 PM (#6043112)
Mullen finally makes the right fourth down call, it works, and then the whole thing gets called back on a nitpicky false start. Sounds about right.
   74. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 08:59 PM (#6043113)
Well, I was complaining earlier about Mullen's absurd lack of aggression, so credit to him for at least trying to go for it there. This O-line is trying to push 100 penalty yards all by themselves tonight.
   75. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:00 PM (#6043114)
What happened there? One of the offensive linemen moved 0.01 nanoseconds before the ball was snapped? I'm still not clear on how that was a false start.
   76. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:02 PM (#6043115)
Orlovsky seems to think it was the left guard tapping the center on the side and then not coming set, which...whew, that is a ref with a quick trigger finger.
   77. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:03 PM (#6043116)
On that replay, it looked like he clearly went early - he was in the neutral zone when the ball was snapped.

But at any rate, they've been jumpy all night, so I'm not really feeling like they deserve the benefit of the doubt.
   78. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:08 PM (#6043118)
Knock on wood, but Jones looks good this drive. And I'm surprised they're throwing it this much -- would have expected Mullen to lean on the run and try to grind the clock down.
   79. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:10 PM (#6043119)
Agreed but can we never run a pass route to a TE behind the line of scrimmage again?
   80. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:11 PM (#6043120)
OK, that was absolutely legit.
   81. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:12 PM (#6043121)
Yeah, that was a real false start. That's, uh, too many of these.
   82. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:12 PM (#6043122)
That is a life-saving face mask.
   83. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:13 PM (#6043123)
That's like the 4th time tonight that the announcers have missed a whistle.
   84. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:15 PM (#6043124)
Remember back when we had both five and fifteen yard facemask penalties? That would have been a five yarder.

Also, how are the announcers saying there was no whistle? The ref clearly blew that play dead.
   85. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:16 PM (#6043125)
It would be really nice if Florida would stop committing false starts.
   86. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:20 PM (#6043127)
Davis catches the ball and ... starts backwards. Not that he had anything, but come on.
   87. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:21 PM (#6043128)
Was that timeout smart there? There's always the possibility of a pass interference or something like that where you need the timeout.
   88. Brian C Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:21 PM (#6043129)
Welp, that's just pitiful.
   89. CFBF is Obsessed with Art Deco Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:23 PM (#6043130)
Those false starts were really killer. First and goal on the five is much, much better than second and goal from the 11 or 12 or wherever they got pushed back to after the two false starts.
   90. Brian White Posted: October 02, 2021 at 09:25 PM (#6043131)
There was absolutely no window in which to throw that ball. There was no way that pass was going to be completed.

Ah well. We lost to Alabama by 2, and Kentucky by 7, so I think we all know that Kentucky is five points better than Bama.

For all the good Mullen's done, this kind of game is going to be a big part of his legacy, too. Obviously every team plays poorly now and again, but the repeated shots at their own feet really grind my gears. And the decision to give up on that possession before halftime really reeked of a coach taking a win for granted to me.

Orlovsky was saying the ball was "late", because that's his one and only way to critique an incompletion. I'd need to see a better angle, but if anything I think it was early - the receiver was "open" in the sense that there was no one around him, but it looked like the window would have been after he'd crossed to the middle of the end zone. But like I say, I'd need a better look, and this game was sufficiently depressing that I'm unlikely to want to watch a single play from it ever again.

Clemson threatening to lose to Boston College. This is baffling.

If only there were some verb to describe what Clemson is doing - delivering an inexplicably disappointing performance against a beatable opponent.

got ya covered:
Clemsoning
The act of fingering another man's butthole, without consent. Typically occurs within the confines of a gridiron football game, but is not necessarily limited to that context.

I don't think it's Clemsoning if the team consistently looks like garbage and finds itself in danger of losing to what should be overmatched opponents on the regular.

I guess I can maybe think along with Mullen on that decision. This isn't last year's offense, and I don't have a future 2nd round quarterback throwing to Tight End Thanos and a bevvy of future NFL receivers. It's a run heavy offense, not built for quick strikes, I have something like 80+ yards in front of me with about a minute and a half to go, and my quarterback is inconsistently accurate at best and interception prone at worst. If we throw a couple incompletions we give the ball back to Kentucky with a couple timeouts, and if we throw an interception we give the ball to Kentucky with great field position and a chance to score going into half with the ball to start the second.

On the other hand, that's just getting way too deep into the weeds and overlooking the big, obvious things (Florida is better than Kentucky and has better players, you have three timeouts and a good offense, and scoring is good). Plus, if you're really that scared of letting Emory Jones lead a two-minute drill, that's a pretty damning indictment of your recruiting and/or player development.

Gundy making the right call, going for fourth down when leading 17-14 instead of kicking a field goal, and it pays off with a touchdown.
