he is fast and the northern illinois defense doesn't possess much speed so it's a bad combo for the huskies

Chandler Harnish is a guy I would like to see at the senior bowl or shrine bowl, ideally Senior Bowl. He actually has more rushing yards than Denard Robinson this season. I think he has more arm strength than Dan Lefevour as well - another dual threat MAC QB that was drafted in the 6th a few years ago. I also would like to see how he tests at the combine.

He does have more arm strength than LeFevour and he's got a more natural throwing motion...certainly a better pro prospect

Trap game this week for USC. Coming off an emotional roller coaster with Stanford the Buffs could provide SC an early scare.

Then again...Colorado is terrible.

It could go both ways really. The rest of the season will show if USC has the heart it showed in the Stanford game, or if they continue to underachieve like they did in the beginning of the season. The Trojans have fallen victim to many unlikely trap games in the past to inferior talent.

Your Buckeyes sure are finding their way again though Keylime. What do you credit that to? Braxton Miller's emergence? Return of some of the suspended players?

The defense is playing inspired football. John Simon is playing as there's a demon controlling him. And yeah, Braxton is slowly starting to show signs of being a good player. Mike Adams' return to the offensive line has been huge. It is also Herron's return that has helped ignite the run game also.

So really, a combination of everything you've said. Plus our defensive line playing like freaks along with a young really athletic secondary.

Not trying to speak for him, just throwing in my two cents.

I have no idea. I'm also really surprised that with all of the conference realignments going on that no one has tried to swipe some of the MAC schools.

Temple has had a good couple year run. Toledo this year has traded blows well with Ohio State and Boise State.

But yeah, watching these guys do work while a place like Penn State struggles along with McGloin and Bolden just baffles me.

11-03-2011, 10:52 AM
They do try and recruit the MAC Qb to the Big 10. But some know it'll be a long shot to start there with higher ranked qbs coming in.

Like Temple's Chris Coyer was being recruited by OSU same time as TP, he committed with TU early as 2 star. Then towards the end tOSU decided they needed 1 more qb. So they ask him to "just take a visit" well he turns into 3 star qb now, ahah. But in the end he stayed with us after the visit. They never really offered it to him, if he said yeah I want to go here, rumors were they would have gave him a scholarship.

But thank god he didn't after our last good QB, Adam, we've had to play with dog pooo. BP would have been so much better if teams actually feared our Qb throwing. One has a noodle for an arm, that's an understatement. The other has a cannon, but can't seem to hit any target past the 5 yard line, Chester Stewart. Oh how much I hate Chester Stewart.

One last rant. To all the UF fans that warned us about Steve Addizo, holy crap were you right. All game long our Rbs have been stuffed up the middle. So on a crucial 3rd and short, what do we call, run up the middle. WTF? Also coach trying to stick with a 5th year senior Chester Stewart for 3 games, who is horrible. After 5 years he can't read a defense and still can't hit wide open WR. Why do you leave him in there, cause he is good in practice?

I feel we'll end up keeping him for a while since he'll win just enough and no other college in the country will want him.

Watching the game last night - they said Temple was pretty much shown the door in 2003 or 2004 from the Big East.

Chris Coyer was pretty impressive last night. I think he has entrenched himself as the starter. Tettleton played well to although I could see how his size could be a hindrance to the bigger schools. Chandler Harnish is pretty much playing lights out and flying under the radar (should end up with a 2,500 yd passing/1,000 yd rushing season) , Austin Dantin has a 15 to 1 td/int ratio.

like bhaarat pointed out some of them do get recruited by Big Ten schools but don't want to go when a much higher rated guy is there to compete with. Austin Boucher had an offer from Ohio State a few years ago when they were desperate for a QB commit having lost out on Tajh Boyd surprisingly, and it was very late in the process and Boucher's twin brother had committe to Miami Ohio, so Boucher spurned an Ohio State offer to play with his brother and get a better shot to start. Ben Roethlisberger spurned an Ohio State offer when he was coming up b/c he wasn't 100% sure that he would play QB there and went to Miami instead where he'd be a QB and start. Some of these guys don't have the grades either, or were really skinny project QBs in high school that grew into their bodies in college and reached their longshot upside.

NC State's head coach, Tom O'Brien, on the comments made by Carolina's coach about being the flagship program in the state: “As far as the flagship, here is a guy[Withers] who was on a football staff that ends up in Indianapolis. If you take three things that you can’t do in college football, you have an agent on your staff, you are paying your players and you have academic fraud. That is a triple play as far as the NCAA goes. So I don’t know that he has anything to talk about or that they have anything to talk about. If that is what people want in their flagship university in North Carolina then so be it.”

It should be noted, as the head coach of NC State, Tom O'Brien has never lost to UNC.

LSU is doing well despite using a two QB system, neither of whom is very good. Jarrett Lee has surprisingly done very well. But I think that will change this weekend. I'm predicting a 10-14 point loss for them.

I think its going to hurt them eventually.

I understand this is a completely different scenario...but for the first 5 games of my senior season in high school my coach rotated myself and another QB. Its too hard for these QB's to stay in a groove. Id bet that these guys are splitting reps during practice instead of having one get a majority, and to ask a guy like Jefferson to come in for one series at a time or a couple plays at a time is asking a lot more than people think. He is going to make a mistake that is going to end up hurting them bad.

It doesn't work at all at Penn State. They keep starting Bolden, pulling him after a few series, and then going with McGloin the rest of the game. And McGloin is terrible. He floated a screen pass that was picked off last week. Abysmal.

It's an awful system. I think it will hurt LSU eventually. With the way LSU's defense can play, Jarrett Lee managing games is all they really need.

The bottom third of basically any of the automatic bid conferences makes me want to puke most of the time. Indiana and Minnesota barely seem like they belong in 1-A much less an AQ conference most years. How about Duke in the ACC? When the hell was the last time they were competitive at all in football? Vandy in the SEC is a joke most years. Even when that team is having an "up" year, it usually means they win 5 games. When was the last time Baylor was worth a damn before Robert Griffin? Colorado jumped to the Pac 1X and joins Washington State in being a running joke school.

I'd love to see some kind of system where teams that are uncompetitive in their AQ school for a long time are dropped after so long. "Smaller" but more successful teams can be bumped up into their spot. I'd love to see Boise State in the Pac whatever. Any given year they'd be in top 2-3 teams. This year, they'd have great games against Stanford and USC while I think they'd beat every other school in the conference.

Stupid money getting in the way of good football.

It might be blasphemy around here, but was Temple really any more terrible than Rutgers was pre-Schiano for years?

Plus now, a pee wee team might be able to compete in the big east. At least it would bring some money out of the curiosity factor....

Haha it's not blasphemy because Scotty and I are homers but we know the dregs that we came from and are still trying to make a national name for ourselves. You can definitely make an argument we were just as bad as Temple some of those years but I believe we were still making some money. I don't like the new invites and I want the hell out of the Big East but you can also make an argument that Boise, Houston, SMU, might be better football schools than Pitt and Syracuse at this point. They might not have the same name value but on the field it's hard to argue they aren't better teams at this point.

Boise, yes, obviously, but Pitt has still been a better and more consistent team than anyone else you could invite. They're always competitive within the conference and have probably churned out more NFL level talent than anyone else currently in it or who is being invited into it.

Syracuse does suck.

And like, with SMU and Houston...gotta have that Texas market! Who cares if they're not even in the top 5 in popularity in the sate. I think some bigger Texas high schools have more of a following than SMU and Houston.

The thing with WSU and CU is that they were once really good programs, and will probably reach that level again sooner or later.CFB goes in cycles (at least for the teams that have already been there before).

It was only about a few years ago when people thought Stanford was complete trash (one of, if not the worst BCS team status). And before that, they were successful with Willingham. Now they're on top of the world with post-Harbuagh.

I live 2 hours away from Pullman, I remember when that was the up and coming program, and they were at the top of the pac 10. They had a real good thing going with Mike Price and when he left that broke their back. They have nothing going in their favor right now. They have the worst facilities in the pac 12, they play in a ****** area, its cold, the girls arent near as hot....its gonna be tough for them to get back to the top, unless they grab someone that can REALLY recruit.

Villanova are a bunch of sissy and don't want to compete. Rest of Big East was all for Temple in all sports, till Nova setup a block with the rest of the private BB schools.

Only way Nova lets Temple in is once Nova become Big East Football member. But Nova wants Big East to help pay for its move up, since most Alumni want nothing to do with it, they couldn't raise money and never got to the voting stage to move up or not.

But we can't beat teams +.500 in the MAC so Idk about Big East.

They're talking about and LSU/Alabama rematch in the NC even if Boise is undefeated.

"Who cares about fair?" - Kirk

Honestly, I think the polls will rank LSU ahead of Boise still even if they lose today. I think Bama would drop more because theyre the home team. The computers probably won't, but a Boise win over UNLV isnt going to impress the computers much either. The computers are going to start to hate Boise as they finish very weak compared to the other programs.

I really don't care who wins in the so-called Game of the Century. Hell, I hope it ends 3-0 in a 17-yd FG. As long as one of Bama and LSU is 8-1 I'm happy.

I'm rooting for OSU to lose, but I'm sure they'll give K-State an ass-whoopin' just like OU did. Same thing can be said about Oregon/Washington.

TAMU can beat OU just like Tech did. As long as their offense is playing well, they have a shot at the upset.

Stanford/Oregon State, meh. Time for Luck to break some records.

Also I don't give a damn about Arky/SCar. All I know is that neither of these teams deserve to be Top 10.

And yeah, I want more Keenum TDs. UAB's defense will allow at least 7.

And finally, wanna know why Boise/UNLV is so late? Because the beatdown will be so ugly. Halloween-ugly.

It's gonna be more interesting to see what happens to the loser of the LSU/Alabama game.

Not at all. Boise still has two Top 50 teams in TCU and SDSU up ahead. As long as those two teams, UGA, AF, Tulsa and Toledo keep winning, an undefeated Boise will be over an one-loss Bama or LSU.

Would help A LOT if the winner won by a big margin, though. Let's say Trent Richardson goes ultimate freaky and Bama beats LSU 45-14 or something like that. There's no way LSU would be voted over Boise (who would be coming off a 50-point win).

I think when people talk down about Boise, they are picturing teams like Houston or the Colt Brennan Hawaii team that got to the BCS and got stomped.

Boise is so incredibly much more solid overall than those teams.

Those teams play absolutely no defense. Boise State plays quite well on defense.

Those teams have weak o-lines and are completely overmatched by more physical defensive fronts. Boise has some o-lineman who will be playing in the NFL.

Those teams don't focus on running the ball at all and when they do, basically just use WRs in the backfield. Boise has Doug Martin who will be a 2nd/3rd round pick and is overall very solid.

I think when people talk down about Boise, they are picturing teams like Houston or the Colt Brennan Hawaii team that got to the BCS and got stomped.

Boise is so incredibly much more solid overall than those teams.

Those teams play absolutely no defense. Boise State plays quite well on defense.

Those teams have weak o-lines and are completely overmatched by more physical defensive fronts. Boise has some o-lineman who will be playing in the NFL.

Those teams don't focus on running the ball at all and when they do, basically just use WRs in the backfield. Boise has Doug Martin who will be a 2nd/3rd round pick and is overall very solid.
Houston has actually been good this year. They're just having a bad day today and they'll obviously win this game.

People said BSU would suck when Zabransky and Johnson left, and that didn't happen. People said BSU would suck when Young and Pettis left, and that isn't happening. People are saying that BSU will suck as soon as Moore is gone, and guess what, that won't happen too.

As long as Chris Peterson is there, Boise will be a Top 10 team.

Trent Richardson looks like he runs a 7 second 40.

He doesn't look fast until he's breaking one off. Often he just smashes defenders and wears them down until he finds his spots. He's a pretty sadistic runner. Lacy is going to miss him a lot.

Purely defense? None. But the USC/Texas championship game probably produced the most highly drafted pros of any other game in recent memory.

Don't forget, these are two of the best defenses in the country. There is a huge difference between great defensive football and simply playing poor offense. There have been a few slip ups by each defense, but they've been unbelievably solid.

I'd rather watch games like this than Big 12 "even the loser puts up 500 yards!" games.
