Title: College FOOTBAW 2019
Post by: Harley Quinn on August 23, 2019, 10:37:07 PM
Season starts off today with Miami against #8 Florida as the marquee game. Arizona/Hawaii duel later tonight while the FCS features Youngstown State taking on Samford on ESPN in the middle of the day. Season then kicks off proper Thursday and Saturday!

Questions of Sound Design
#1: Graham Harrell is ready to introduce the Air Raid to USC and try and save Clay Helton's ass along with the program. Thoughts, 909?

#2: Do you believe in last year's 4-8 Nebraska program heading into this season? Maybe the most hyped up team in the nation.

#3: Justin Herbert, maybe the best NFL QB Prospect this year, is ready to try and carry Oregon to the playoffs. Notre Dame, Michigan, Auburn, Oklahoma, and a whole host of other teams are ready to shut that shit down though. Which teams do you think have an outside shot at the playoffs or may surprise the most?

#4: Clemson and Alabama yet again look like two of the top teams in the nation to the surprise of nobody. Does either QB run away with the Heisman Trophy? Is there a Dark Horse Heisman winner in your mind?

I'M WATCHING FOOTBAW

It heals the Andrew Luck news to see a good game between two big name schools. Also, FUCK FLORIDA

Ooh, that felt good, it's been a while.

Watching the Hawai'i game was a lot of fun. When that Run & Shoot is humming and going right, it's beautiful to watch just how wide open those WRs can get. Byrd was absolutely ripping up Arizona's D down the middle in that first half and they just couldn't stop him at all throughout the game. On the flip side, the misreads and tipped balls also can lead to a lot of struggles which is what happened to McDonald and led to his benching.

It wasn't always like this! Besides the streak of freak comebacks in the first half of the 2016 season... it has been for the last decade. I couldn't guess at what's all gone so wrong. It's been way too long to say the Lane Kiffin affair is what's still the problem. The fanbase is shattered too, finding itself looking forward to basketball season more often than not.

Tennessee is looking like a real football team, up 13-10 over BYU early in the third quarter~

EDIT: Nevermind, BYU's already at midfield. We can't give up less than three yards a carry.

Tennessee getting muscled into their own end zone to lose the game was a fitting way to go down. Good gravy. 0-2.

Turns out there’s a reason why...

LSU football head coach Ed Orgeron confirmed to media members Monday that the Tigers did not have air conditioning in the locker room Saturday for its game against Texas.

North Dakota State won again and in their defeat of North Dakota 38-7 on Saturday, they've now won 23 straight games. It's the longest current streak in Division I and the 5th-longest in FCS history. They'll have their hands full with #18 Delaware up next.

So I was able to watch Footbaw 2 of the first 3 weeks of the season and I'm actually happy to be shelling out for ESPN+ due to the access of games I wouldn't normally catch (which it is a running joke in my family about me choosing Idaho @ Wyoming over an SEC game).

That said, for the major marquee games coming up, the top of the pile is looking REALLY good. The final 4 is going to boil down to attrition.

I’m a Michigan fan, but most of us know what they’ve been the most overrated team in all of football for the last 20 years. Every season when they start ranked so high you just know they can’t end the season there.

Cal held on to beat Ole Miss 28-20 after an Ole Miss WR caught the pass with his body in the end zone and ball at the 1 yard line. Subsequent QB Sneak got stuffed and time ran out. Crazy finish.

I was lucky to be at work and basically watched this. What a completely bonkers game. I figured UCLA was dead and out of nowhere they started coming back. When they made it back within I think it was 49-38, I started thinking this could turn into a crazy finish but didn't think it could get that crazy.

Fun Fact: Connor Halliday threw for 734 yards at home and lost, now Anthony Gordon throws 9 TD at home and also lost. COUG CURSE.

Georgia Southern remains undefeated following a 2 OT win. They have a good chance to run the table and stay undefeated by year's end.

App State also has a chance to run the table and get highly ranked if they can also beat South Carolina on 11/9.

Georgia Southern knocked off #20 Appalachian State 24-21, dooming App State's chances at a potential high bowl appearance.

Other big games this week in terms of rivalries or high stakes: Army/Air Force, Miami/Florida State, #22 Kansas State/Kansas, #8 Georgia/#6 Florida, #15 SMU/#24 Memphis (in PRIME TIME), and #7 Oregon/USC.

At the FCS level you have - #15 Dartmouth/Harvard, #9 Northern Iowa/#7 Illinois State, #16 North Carolina A&T/South Carolina State, #1 North Dakota State/Youngstown State, and finally #3 Weber State/#6 Sacramento State.

Several FCS teams got knocked off including #11 Villanova by New Hampshire and Monmouth stomped #5 Kennesaw State in a shocker. And as usual in the CAA slaughterhouse, Richmond beat #20 Stony Brook to keep that conference in a dogfight with every school behind #2 8-1 James Madison.

This situation is one of the more "fuck you NCAA" situations I've read in a while.

I'm not an LSU fan, but I was at an LSU party earlier with LSU people in an FCS town (that was playing away so it wasn't TOO bad) and my God Larry the Cable guy could have been there taking notes for his next tour.

That said, as a fan of the sport, the product on the field was very entertaining.

Chad Morris, the guy who was behind Clemson's offensive rise in the early 10's, is officially out as Arkansas HC after going 4-18. Worth noting it took him 3 years to finish just 7-5 with SMU before Arkansas hired him.

The only guy who has returned from a busted hip to play in the NFL was Dennis Pitta, and he busted it two more times. A player cannot actually come back from that and maintain a consistent career. Worst of all Tua plays a position where guys will run at him full speed and try to kill him on every play.

Alma mater won conference tonight! First time they ever repeated as champs, first time they ever have 3 consecutive playoff appearances. And we've won the last 3 rivalry games against our end of season rival!

Playoffs will be announced Sunday, so we have to wait multiple days unlike the Saturday teams.

There's a really nice Q&A here related to playoff selection as well as pertaining to this season: http://www.fcs.football/cfb/story.asp?i=20191121115455672936004

"This is not just for FCS football, we're using the same selection and bracketing process that they use for the men's basketball, the women's basketball, baseball, softball. It's the exact selection and bracketing process that they use among all their championships."

Also congrats to Nicholls :) Still sad that UMass made the jump to FBS and are just a college of the poor sisters compared to their success at the FCS level. Worth highlighting the massive jump Kennesaw State has made as well in their jump to the FCS level and their success (9-1, scored 440 points thus far, and lost to Kent State 23-26).

Coaching changes aplenty starting to happen!

Tim Walsh announced his retirement after coaching at Cal Poly for 11 years going 59-66. He's best known for coaching at Portland State for 14 seasons.
Bob Davie is out at New Mexico after going 35-63 over 8 years there with a likely factor being his health scare in September.
Mark Elder is out at Eastern Kentucky despite back to back 7 win seasons.
Tony Sanchez is out at UNLV after 5 years and winning just 16 games.

A few 'upsets' in the FCS playoffs already with the biggest being SE Louisiana beat Villanova 45-44 thanks to Chason Virgil's 474 yard 3 TD performance at QB.

#18 Austin Peay steamrolled #16 Furman 42-6 and #13 Illinois State beat down #12 SE Missouri State 24-6. Finally, RB Jonathan Murphy paced #15 Kennesaw State's 28-21 win over #11 Wofford with 206 yards and 3 TD on the ground.
