Roll yourself, Aggiemitter, but credit to TAMU for playing a full sixty minutes of football.

Down, but hardly out.

ROLL TIDE

The Texas A&M QB is a joy to watch. Undersized for NFL?

Points for proper use of an apostrophe.

Hanky: The Texas A&M QB is a joy to watch. Undersized for NFL?


He's smart, accurate and mobile. I think he'll be fine. Is Fran Tarkenton an appropriate comparison? Flutie?
 
2012-11-11 07:16:34 AM  
I would just like to ask that USC underinflate a few more balls to beat ND while Oregon has a stroke and loses in the PAC championship game.

Wikipedia has him at 6'1". Flutie, Wilson and Vick are all shorter.

Everyone says 4th quarter, 4th quarter. But dammit Bama, when you are playing a good team, you gotta play the 1st quarter too.

We got away with it last week because Les Miles is an idiot, but not two weeks in a row. Start playing the damn game before you switch end zones.

Predictions for the rest of the season:

1. Alabama will win out, including the SEC championship game over a one-loss Georgia.
2. At least two of Oregon, Kansas State, and Notre Dame will also win out.
3. The human voters will vote up Alabama for playing in the toughest conference and push them into #2 in the BCS rankings over at least one of the undefeated teams I just mentioned.
4. Every other conference will rebel at this perceived injustice and force the playoff to start next year rather than in two years.

Chavis. Prevent defense got you that win. Despite all the crazy calls, LSU was still in the lead until they decided to play soft D on the last drive.

And the when Alabama beats UGA in the SEC Championship all will be right in the world.

Somebody hold me.

Posted this in the other one a minute before this thread went green:

The Computer trolls the hell out of ND this week.

Prediction:
1. K St, 2. Oregon, 3. Bama, 4. ND, 5. UG, 6. LSU, 7. UF, 8. SC, 9. FSU, 10. OR St

So is Drew Brees.

Since Auburn probably isn't going to win another game this season, this is all I have to cling to. My nipples were exploding with delight watching all the Bama fans throw a hissy fit last night at the bar.

I'm trying to figure out why the hell Bama chose to pass on 4th and goal rather than give Eddie Lacy the ball to run it in.
 
2012-11-11 08:16:37 AM  
Would an undefeated Notre Dame team with such a tough schedule really not play for the national championship?

This.

I was stuck at work and didn't get to see the game or listen to Eli call it on the radio. So now I'm reading about it.

Life goes on. Sounds like TAMU played a heck of a 60 minute game. Bama didn't. Congrats Aggies.

Bama still controls their destiny for the SEC championship.

Bama was without a doubt outplayed.

Well, the voters have been known to do some really stupid things, but when you get taken to 3OT by an unranked Pitt team, it seems pretty clear what the reasonable choice is.

And they weren't that great.

Alabama should be a 2 loss team. LSU outplayed them, as did A&M. If Alabama gets voted up, the voters need to be fired.

Krymson Tyde: I'm trying to figure out why the hell Bama chose to pass on 4th and goal rather than give Eddie Lacy the ball to run it in.


Lacy has a concussion. Saban should be questioned about why he let Lacy get back on the field after he was knocked half out.
 
2012-11-11 09:31:02 AM  
I guess you could say the tide has turned.

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

If that's true then yes, there should be major repercussions.

Oh good farking God. Jeff Sagarin just released his ratings. Guess who's #1?

Ala-farking-Bama.

There is no god.

Somewhere, up in Pigskin Heaven, Bear Bryant turns to a newly arrived Darrel Royal and says, "sucks to be Sabin and Brown, don't it?"

bulldg4life: I would just like to ask that USC underinflate a few more balls to beat ND while Oregon has a stroke and loses in the PAC championship game.


No, no, no! We need KSU to be the regular big 12 choke teams and slip up then have stanford beat oregon easily next week, then ND win out, and once UGA takes care of bama in the GA dome they can play bama in the NCG...........its pretty much the one team I feel they can roll over easily, ND has a decent defense but they really can only shut down one aspect of an opponent, if the other team can run and pass they are farked.

It is funny to watch bama lose though, although I still think the refs missed a couple helmet to helmet hits on their last drive, one on mccarron at the 2 yard line that would have made it first and goal. But hey rooooooooooooooool tideeeeeeeeeeeee..........right down the toilet bowl....

You mean like OU?
 
2012-11-11 10:47:35 AM  
So does this mean that everyone agrees that the worst NFL team would smoke Alabama?

You have Landry Jones as a QB, they cant pass unless its a big 12/video game defense............throw it deep nobody is back there!

machoprogrammer: So does this mean that everyone agrees that the worst NFL team would smoke Alabama?


Alabama fans would and did agree, even before last night's loss . The only person stupid enough to say that Bama could beat an NFL team was Spurrier, and he's an idiot.
 
2012-11-11 11:34:10 AM  
Spurrier is no idiot, he's just a Sith-level master troll who suckers SEC fans with skill and glee.
 
2012-11-11 11:39:59 AM  

machoprogrammer: So does this mean that everyone agrees that the worst NFL team would smoke Alabama?


No one with a brain ever thought otherwise.
Sure, Alabama has maybe 10-15 guys that might make an NFL roster one day, but even the worst NFL team has 53 guys who already have made an NFL roster.

Agreed on all points. Bama will still find a way to the NCG arguing they are the best team even though they lost a game, again. Then we'll have to hear Bama fan with their backs to the wall "We're the best, just look at our SoS!" Only this time I hope more people will stand up and say "We're looking, and we see this huge shiatstain on your record from November 10th".

You might want to go back and read the thread....
 
2012-11-11 11:52:50 AM  
The best part of this is that with Texas down, A&M just claimed the entire state for the SEC :)

No, hes an idiot, he thinks hes a genius but thats just him covering up the bullshiat he spews.

Tarkenton is the name I thought of watching the game yesterday.

alabama won't go to the bcs title game if 2 out of the 3 remaining undefeated teams stay undefeated. the human polls won't allow it.
 
2012-11-11 12:38:58 PM  

animesucks: alabama won't go to the bcs title game if 2 out of the 3 remaining undefeated teams stay undefeated. the human polls won't allow it.


At this point the pollsters should keep Alabama out of the game under all circumstances. Any of the three remaining teams with 1 loss should stay ahead of 1 loss Alabama.
 
2012-11-11 12:45:04 PM  
Matthew Berry will be so insufferable.
 
2012-11-11 12:54:36 PM  

WhyteRaven74: HaywoodJablonski: Flutie, Wilson and Vick are all shorter

Think the right question shouldn't be "How tall is he?", rather "How high's his football IQ?"

That's why Doug Flutie was a great QB (IMHO) despite his size, while Kelly Stouffer played like he never saw a football game in his life despite being 6'7".
