Yale converts an interception deep in Harvard territory into a touchdown. Yale leads 24-20.

Michigan State and Northwestern aren't great but they're playing a pretty entertaining game.

animesucks: steamingpile: animesucks: NetOwl: steamingpile: PowerSlacker: Every team in the SEC should be downgraded five spots in the BCS for their collective joke of a schedule this weekend.

Same as most of the pac 12s first 3 weeks, didn't Oregon play what amounts to 3 preseason games? Most teams do it, some just do it for home coming games or before their big rivalry games.

I, for one, have no problem with these games, though they're better earlier in the season.

It's fun to watch your school get a shot at amajor conference team a few times a year, and, more importantly, these games bring in a lot of money. They allow football to continue to be played at a lot of schools whose programs would otherwise lose a few million dollars, and that makes college football more fun for everyone (and it probably saves quite a few non-football sports at many schools).

The people who never want these matchups to be played effectively want to kill the sport for most people over a few games per year that no one forces them to watch. It's the same annoying attitude displayed by those who think there are too many bowl games.

it's fun, but those small schools probably shouldn't have football programs to begin with. it's a drain on school resources

Those small schools make money off those games and funds most of their sports program, try again.

they make money on that game, but they still lose money overall.


You are wrong, especially about schools like Ga southern and app state, they make a lot of money with their programs but a lot of schools would be decimated by taking away these games.

geom_00:Daryl Clark was the first. Under "those coaches that shall not be named on Fark

I didn't realize Clark got to 3003 but sure enough it says he did in 2009 - they announced McGloin as the season passing yards record holder somewhere in the 2990s according to the stats I saw - like 2996. So I didn't even think about Clark getting over 3k.

Still crazy times! :)

Oh yeah, Gus Johnson is on FOX now.

Barely been able to see any games this year.

And he explodes right away!!!

Georgia State played Alabama in the first year that GSU even had a football team. And the next year, everyone on the team got to have a helmet of their very own.

Whoa. There's a Jr. Hochuli refereeing the USC/UCLA game.

And he's buff too. Heh.

Touchdown, Harvard, now leading Yale again, 27-24.

Wow. I've got a game (or pregame) on 6 channels right now, and I don't even have cable.

This is pretty sweet.

I don't think Georgia state made a ton of money from that game, they did it as a favor to Bill Curry a former Alabama head coach who brought the team back to respectability yet was rewarded by the AD trying to strip some his power away.

A first year program should have made a mill off that but I think they were paid $200k, besides Georgia state has some big money boosters behind it and pushed for them to start football up.

McGloin now 3 yards shy of the single game passing record. Unlikely to get it tho...

Oh and in a twist of irony of the original poster biatching about cupcakes, guess who shiatty Georgia state will play in a couple years? Auburn? Miss St? UT?.......

Nope, its Oregon but it will probably be earlier in the year so that makes it OK.

Harvard puts the game on ice with a 50+ yard TD run. Crimson up 34-24 with 1:08 to play.

Looks like Harvard extends the winning streak over Yale to 6.

Yes, 2002 versus Iowa.

Just want to commend the sec teams for scheduling quality opponents to finish out the season.

Shameful.

But its OK when other teams do it to start the season.....that's more shameful since you can have a chance to gauge how prepared your team may be.

Looks like UCLA has a crap kicker but USC has a crap defense. Who will prevail?

And dammit, the radio is somehow like 10 seconds behind the TV broadcast.

You want a charity game? How about Alabama & ND play and donate all the television/ticket money to small schools? Or USC & Oklahoma. Texas v. Michigan. etc. Pounding on schools well below their weight class to pad the season record is one of the most disgusting aspects of big college football.

...although App State or La Munroe shaming a big school is schadenfun.

The difference being sec teams do it to start and end the season. I know, i know, they do it because the have to play tough conference foes like auburn, uk and vandy. Poor babies.

I don't disagree but biatching about one conference while ignoring that other conferences are doing it is stupid. Besides the sec will go to a 9 game schedule soon and take away one of the cupcake games.

So they can schedule 3 of them to start the season but if they dare have one at homecoming then its shameful?

Go look at Oregon's schedule to start the season then biatch, or the fact they are playing the same cupcakes teams and then realize almost all teams do it so biatching about it makes people look stupid.

Part of it is bad luck, (Ark v. Miss St. should have been a better game) but when a conference has 6 teams in the top 10 and 5 are playing popcorn fart opponents late in the season (and the one playing in-conference has a weak opponent,) that is going to attract negative attention.
