I had no idea that game was going on tomorrow.

All I know is, GT-VT on Monday night, gonna be the closest game in awhile. I feel bad for any player that goes to GT though, with few exceptions GT ruins your chance at an NFL career with their trick play offense. Not only are we running the triple option once again, but this year we're supposedly dabbling in a 2 QB system. Tevin Washington AND Synjyn Davis. At the same time. Gonna be interesting for sure, I'd rather watch real football than the hokey option crap, but I'll cheer for them all the same anyway.

I always hated watching the option. Sometimes it works to perfection. Other times, it's constant no yard plays. Pretty uneventful imo and a time suck on top of that(I know that's the point of option offense, but still annoying). Just throw the ****ing ball.

The only good thing about it is that like every time you actually do pass it it's a TD.

BTW, REALLY excited to watch Glennon this year. I think he's an NFL starting QB, to be honest. It'd be fun to see him rise up the draft board, with a big year this year he could bump his way into the second round (I'm pulling for him to be a first rounder, but I doubt it'll happen).

<- That's me when that scenario happens. Extremely annoying because you know it's going to happen eventually, and it could come on any down.

Hey look, they're going to run it for the millionth time. Oh wait, ****.

Carrying on to your next post, I'm pretty excited about him. But if he goes down, we're ****ed because of QB transfers. True freshman as the second string.

Also interested to see how many picks Amerson will get this year. IIRC, McShay has him as a top-5 NFL prospect this year, and repeating or even coming close to last year's play would solidify that, imo.

Very interesting year for my first full season as a State fan. Lots of turnover after this year.

Over under is probably about 53.... which is too low unless the game gets another storm causing the game to be called after 3 again.


edit: Line is 23.5 and O/U is 62... jeez that's a tough one. I'd say still take the Over since WVU's breaking in a new defense. Final will probably be something like 42-24 so I wouldn't take WVU at that line.

A top 10 team by all accounts bragging about beating Vanderbilt by 4.

Hence the Spurrier troll face. But, FWIW Vandy's usually a team that gives us trouble for some reason. I would have preferred to have had a tune-up game before a conference match. Well, onto ECU and the Ghost of Head Coaches That Could Have been (were Skip still there)

Not sure where you're getting your info, but ECU doesn't play Vandy this year.

Any idea as to whether the Caniac Carnival will still be held if there is a lockout? I'm guessing not, which bums me out because I wanted to try that Crazy Caniac Challenge this year.

Almost certainly not I would say.


On another note, after all the railing that I did about being up in the air about picking up NCAA13.... yep, got it. I did the SI offer because I'm a sucker for the NCAA franchise, and price wise it's basically the same as getting SI and the game for the price of the game alone.

On that note, I was feeling good about ECU this season.....until i read that we have 4 guys who are all equally capable of winning the starting job this season (2 newbies, 1 guy who was backseat to Davis last year and threw a total of like 30 times with 0 TDs, and a guy who is a 5th year senior who has thrown a total of like 40 times with 1 TD). if a red-shirt freshman and a 5th year senior have an equal chance of winning the starting job, we have a big problem.

Yeah, I haven't followed ECU at all since I graduated. I just figured if we're going to do our bi-annual "My college athletics team is better than yours, just because I said so", I'd throw ECU out there.
