Troy 24-7 with 8 mins left


From the little I saw of the game (while working)...it didn't look that close. LSU looked like they were THUROUGHLY and SOUNDLY beaten.

Proud of Troy for many reasons.

The LSU faithful are gonna be LIVID.

I disagree..

Read an article (think it was last year) that illustrated that, outside of Saban, a college HC's chances to win a 'ship are within the first 4 years of tenure...

After that the percentages dropped from like 70 to 30 (dropping each year after that)..

Jimbo has shown that he won't change.. doesn't change his system, doesn't change his coaching personnel, doesn't change his recruiting strategy etc..

We've had too 5 or 10 draft classes ue past 5 years and what do we show for it?

Our D was supposed to he lights out again this year... especially our defensive backfield yet we are getting torched..

And our OL has been HORRIBLE since 2014...absolute trash..yet we still recruit 3star guys and allow Trickett to coach them...

Our ST's rank near deadlast in the country and have steadily declined over the past 4 years..

Jimbo either needs to clean house or we do..

The real problem is the OL. We don't block anyone, can't sustain drives and our D gets gassed. It's really that simple in my mind. Been saying since last year that you have to have a death with to play QB behind that OL. I have a bet that Blackman doesn't make it through the Miami game. Poor kid.

I don't disagree...but what is changing to make that better? Trickett is still our OL coach and we are still targeting lower tier OL prospects..

Changing that approach (either the coach or the talent) is up to Jimbo and he hasn't done squat...

Careful FSU fans. You may get your wish and end up like Texas, Tennessee, maybe LSU or any of the other once great programs that were once perennial power houses, but wanted even more. Coaches are really difficult to find. We've seen recently that no program is too big to fail and it's really difficult to work your way back up. You won a National Championship recently and are constantly in the top 5 for recruiting. There's no reason to want a change now.

First, there are no perennial powerhouses. These things are cyclical. Always have been. If you're old enough, you'll remember a time when Nebraska was dominant. USC. Miami...the list goes on.

I call it the Mark Richt effect. Fan bases become entitled. Bored with winning 10 games a year. Top 5 recruiting classes.

In 10 years, when Alabama is back to winning 7 games a year, you're gonna hear the same song from Alabama fans that you hear for 15 years after Bear retired and they were sucking.

It's just the way it is with fans. I'm curious as to how many LSU fans wouldn't give their arm to have Les Miles back...

Saw the last 30 seconds.

This is just SHOCKING. I understand Clemson's QB went down (apparently?) but Syracuse? F-ing SYRACUSE!?

NC State...the new "team to beat" in that half of the conference?

Didn't stay up for the whole game but I see #8 wash state got drummed by cal last night. So that's 2 top 10 teams in 1 night.

I was actually getting home in time for that game and was looking forward to seeing Falk for a 2nd time.

WTF was THAT!? It looked like he was the victim of an alien abduction.

5 ints against a thoroughly mediocre Cal team. WAS ST. Looked like a completely different team than I saw against USC.

The PAC 10 took a beating this weekend. BOTH undefeated teams go down. USC barely escapes. UCLA looses.

This may be the conference that gets hosed come playoff time.

Teams to keep an eye on:

Wisconsin

They've got a fairly easy road to the conference championship game.

Miami

Same. One tough game left against Notre Dame...at home.

NC State

They already have 1 loss so 1 more will do them in...but they've looked as impressive as any team I've seen in the last month.

Notre Dame

The only thing that makes me happier than seeing Ohio State lose is seeing ND lose. That said, they look like a damn fine team, playing with a LOT of confidence. Their schedule is ****ing brutal but they have earned respect. That 1 point loss to Georgia doesn't look so bad now...

Georgia

They've demolished everyone not named Notre Dame. It looks like UGA/Alabama for the title. Wouldn't surprise me if they BOTH make the playoff.





This has been a wildly unpredictable year...even by college standards. The Big 10/12/18 are about to start beating the **** out of each other with OSU/Michigan/Penn St. all playing each other. Penn St. has a leg up right now but who the **** knows how it shakes out. I can pretty much guarantee, by the end of the year, you're gonna hear one of them bitching about being the "best team not in the playoffs".

Arizona State had allowed at least 30 points to each of their first five opponents. So of course Washington only manages to score 7 on them.

Frankly...I'm surprised they got 7. IDK WTF is going on out west but those teams look awfully dicey...even USC tonight. Dennard didn't look so great. Again. And it's not like the SEC or BIG 10 where they beat the hell out of each other...these PAC 10 teams just don't look like good teams. Period.

ASU did everything in their power to give away this game. What was their coach even doing in the last 5 minutes? The play calling/clock management was ****ing HORRID. Even the PASS (!?) that clinched the game, was sheer luck. It was hard to watch.

Dabo is such a class guy tho. He hugs the Syracuse coach and says "I'm so happy for you" and then seeks out the WR to congratulate him on his performance.

I hope they get back to the top 4 at the end of the year

If I had a kid that was being heavily recruited, I'd want him to go to Clemson just because of the coach.... Seems to be straight up guy and runs a good program

Richt (now at Miami) has had the same rep for years (at UGA). There are guys that are the real deal and then you have your phonies. Petrino/Bryles of the world.

Meh.
