    For me as an Ohio St fan, this is all that needs to be said. Virtually nobody could have seen this kind of beat down coming.

    Congratulations.

    They’ve earned the right to get the shit kicked out of them by Alabama.

    :p

    I wonder if it will affect Trevor Lawrence's NFL draft stock? Jags are on the clock!

    Bama 52-24 OSU.

    Yeah, who can predict a beat down like that? :rofl:

    A little late for the NCAAF thread, innit?

    College football has reached the same level as the NBA, enjoy the regular season because the playoffs are SUPER boring.

    That may be one of the best college teams in history.

    The 1992 championship is the most beloved. Gene Stallings a very nice man—-and even better defensively.

    The Teague/Thomas takeaway was jaw-dropping

    I was looking at the highlights. Fields' replacement C.J. Stroud threw for 6 TD's / 432 yards today vs Michigan State. 56-7

    Goldilocks' replacement 1TD/1INT 208 yards, tho Clemson did win, mostly with two 100+ yard rushers, 48-27 over Wake Forest.

    Alabama takes the SEC West…again.
    They are vulnerable this year. Auburn may stiffin and embarrass them next week.

    Bama is good, very good, and Bryce Young is a stud for real, but there were a couple of questionable calls in that game against Arkansas. I still think Bama would have won no matter what, but I always hate to see calls get into the mix like that.

    As for OSU... I seriously doubt that anyone saw that beat-down of Sparty coming. I remember worrying about that early line on that game of 18 pts becoming motivation for MSU against the whole "disrespect" angle. Turns out I was wrong. Maybe OSU took it as a sign of disrespect. :biggrin: Seriously... Stroud had all day to get those numbers, throwing TDs to four different receivers. And the way the crowd begged for Teague to get that TD... that was cool.

    Now it's on to Ann Arbor and while recent success against the Wolverines has been one-sided... I just can't help but be concerned.

    Well, they literally have the worst pass defense in college football, so...

    :lol:

    Auburn doesn't stand a chance but I think my Bulldogs have about a 75% chance of winning the week after.

    Rittenberg has the right idea, given that Hartline is the wide receivers coach at OSU

    Auburn gave it their all last night. I'm kind of glad Alabama won because I don't want to see a pissed off Saban on Saturday.

    He’s never happy.

    Harrison Ford would be perfect to play him :)

    Multiple sources indicate that Rich Rodriguez is the new head coach at Jacksonville State. I have been skeptical of a move to FBS but this is a stellar hire.
