'Dem Stats:

- Baylor QB goes 29-47 for 581 yards and 5 TD's...and loses
- Oh you know, one receiver on each team went for 300+, and WVU had another guy over 200. No big whoop.
- And somehow both teams had a RB go over 20 carries as well.

So mad I didn't get to see this. ESPN app said "Fox", but of course it's FX, which cable-less me does not have. When both teams were over 35 in the third quarter, I toyed with the idea of taking two 4-year-olds to the nearest bar, but figured that was just asking for trouble.

WVU scored 70 points and fails to cover the spread.

That was the basis for my submission of this story. Oh well, can't win them all.

In other news, Georgia is about to beat Tennessee 51-44 and it doesn't really feel high-scoring after this defense-free cluster.

This is not the highest score by a losing team in college ball (tied for third place)

It is, however, the highest score by a losing ranked team.

Isn't it a felony to burn furniture in Motown city limits? I heard something about that but I wasn't sure.

I'm excited for this team (and for Coach Holgs' style of play) but the Geno Heisman talk is a little premature. Let's wait a bit, OK?

Another great fact about today's game - Geno had more TDs than he had incompletions.

63-70?

It would take a Big Ten basketball team at least two games total this score...

I have Geno Smith on my college fantasy team. He gave me 87 points but I'm still losing by 60, thanks in part to my opponent having T. Austin.

Shiat, I didn't even know West Virginia had a college. I guess there is more to the state than The Wonderful Whites of West Virginia.

In all seriousness though, hell of a game. I bet on Baylor with +11. Chaching!

That's a felony?

For Fark's Sake... I thought 15 yards for excessive celebration was excessive.

I'd bet otherwise. Even the most offense-obsessed fan expects some degree of defense to show up. Otherwise they may as well be watching practice drills.

A team with a defense like that wouldn't stand a chance in the SEC. Right, Georgia fans?

Geno Smith is a disgusting goon who will have a pro career about as long as Pat White's.

kevinatilusa: A team with a defense like that wouldn't stand a chance in the SEC. Right, Georgia fans?


Well if the game is close no, but if UGA gets up by 2 TDs then Richt starts playing not to lose and it winds up killing the team and momentum.

UGA fans are used to it and that's why prilosec is needed before every game then you have to make sure zantac is close by because he's going to make your stomach churn.

White still made upwards of a few million bucks in the NFL. He gets to pull a pension for life. Fins are the idiots who drafted him that high, but EL OH EL LET'S WATCH AS THE JETS ARE THE ONLY TEAM THAT MADE BAD DRAFT PICS AMIRITE?

And for what it's worth, who the hell said anything about Geno going pro? No one. He's 6'3, 225, so he's got the size, but I don't think he'll be anything in the NFL.

I'll say it. I think he has enough accuracy and control on his passes to be an NFL quarterback.

HodieTeck:

Depends. Does he have a good brain for football? Does he see the field? Can he read defenses?

Baylor was not playing defense at all, and his long balls do not have a lot of zip on them. I don't know.

Big 12 QBs in the NFL recently are Colt McCoy, Vince Young, Gabbert, RGIII, Bradford, and Freeman.

McCoy's a backup, Vince is out of the league, Gabbert ain't that great, jury is still out on Bradford and Freeman, and RGIII needs more data.

But, here's the funny thing: Alex Smith is proving that if you have a coach that puts you in the right system for your skills, you can ball in the NFL.

SlothB77: right now geno Smith would go number 1 overall


The crappy thing about this game is that it was impossible to tell the difference between plays that were good because of Geno/receivers and plays that were good because the Baylor defense fell on their asses. There were at least three touchdowns that were solely based on a WVU short pass/Baylor missed tackle/no safety help.
 
2012-09-30 12:46:03 AM
Wow, talk about a bet you can brag about. It was two touchdowns from a 81.5 total at HALFTIME.

81.5

Who had that over? It reminds me of the good old days of the BYU/ SD St. games in the mid 90's.

Honestly, Geno's biggest problem is a desire to stand in the pocket too long waiting to find a receiver. He's improved, but still can linger behind the line for a long, gut-wrenching while.

Even that's not a tremendous problem if he has good linemen backing him up. But then I don't know how many NFL teams have really solid blocking, like the kind that'll buy you enough time in the pocket to read a book.
 
2012-09-30 04:33:23 AM
It's pretty much impossible to predict what will happen once a QB hits the NFL, but Geno is pretty clearly a first round pick right now. He will definitely get his shot.

That was an amazing game. I think I sat down for maybe 5 minutes. Geno plaid very very well and one of the highlights was an incredible 1 handed catch that was the nail in the coffin for Baylor. Baylor's qb stares down his receivers.
