    College Gameday Thread: Week 4

    Discuss all week 4 games

    Miami @ Pittsburgh Thursday night. TCU @ SMU on Friday.

    NC State/GT and VT/BC look like the only good noon games (Bowling Green vs Michigan yay?). Alabama @ Arkansas looks like the premiere game at 3:30. UCLA/Texas, Stanford/Notre Dame, North Carolina/Rutgers, are some other good afternoon games. Oklahoma/Cincinnati, Kentucky/Florida, UGA/Miss St, SCar/Auburn, Oregon State/Boise State and WVU/LSU are later games. Oregon @ Arizona State is on super late.

    4 of the top 8 defenses have lost a game already.
    Some more of the many reasons to disregard rankings until at least Halloween. September is cupcake month.

    I don't think Ohio State's defensive numbers will hold up no.

    Yup, then all of this will go to **** when conference play starts. Except for Ohio State's numbers obviously.

    We're pretty close I think offensively..

    Stanzi is all kinds of #4 in passing efficiency/rating, Robinson sits top 30 in rushing yards, and DJK as well in receiving yards..

    Pretty sure we played two teams that went to bowl games last year in Iowa State and Arizona.

    #5 rushing defense, #1 total defense..

    Well now I know, and knowing is half the battle.

    I will have to wait until tomorrow it appears to mock some Nittany Kittens.

    The knee thing scared the crap out of me.


    Showcasing him for the NFL.

    Yup, pretty much. It's fun to gloat about now, but like I said, congrats to all the top defenses for not letting high school teams gain yards on you.

    The one thing I'm not encouraged by for Iowa is the lack of turnovers compared to the last 2-3 years. We are still generating some, but nowhere near the same amount. Probably has to do with the new LBs and relatively weaker CB play.

    But hey, WE'RE #1!!!!!!

    Interesting also, the top 2 in total defenses (Iowa and Tejas) have both lost a game already. Weird.

    To be fair, though, you just described like 75% of FBS teams. So while it is a little early to be crowning anyone/any team, it's not like teams like Nebraska or Texas or Ohio State or other top defenses have played drastically harder schedules. Comparitively, it can be taken as an impressive feat, but in the grand scheme of things who gives a **** if you dominate teams worse than your practice squad.

    Also, where is DG slacking with the week 5 thread? I want to post a picture to rile up some PSU fans.
