I loathe KSU, but respect the hell out of Bill Snyder. I can't believe that place has the #1 team right now...

As far as Notre Dame, they aren't very good but keep winning. Pitt was totally screwed last week though and should have had a 1st and goal in that 2nd OT on the missed FG. For those that missed the controversy (which seems to be just about everybody I have talked to):

Look closely. #2 on the left side of your screen. Also a #2 in the middle, which can be easily seen on the replay shown from the back.



I'll root on the Ducks (not actively, just as the team I'm less against), I suppose, especially with Scott Frost as an assistant coach.

Wait what? There were two people on the field with the same #? How did that screw Pitt?

I don't know. What are rules for having 2 players with same number on the field?

According to NCAA rules ('11-'12 at least):

Quote:
Players’ Numbering
ARTICLE 2. a. All players shall be numbered 1 through 99. Any number
preceded by zero (“0’’) is illegal.
b. No two players of the same team shall participate in the same down wearing
identical numbers.

c. Markings in the vicinity of the numbers are not permitted.
PENALTY [a-c]—Live-ball foul. Five yards from the previous spot [S23].
So ya. Pitt should have received a 1st down

As soon as Akers missed his FG, I was rooting for a tie

Non-sequitor: The only Division 1 team to score under 50 points against Idaho State this year was an FBS school, Air Force (49).

In their 9 losses (they won a game against a transitional DII school that's 3-7) they've allowed 49, 73, 54, 77, 52, 52, 70, 50, and 70 points.

Bengals gonna Bengal.

aren't all Matt Spaeth facts, inherently fun?

i wouldn't mind seeing some charts and graphs concerning the NFL production of college award-winners. that was the thing, wasn't it. the Steelers featuring two John Mackey Award winning Tight Ends.

I liked Spaeth for the simple fact that he got Tuman off the roster.

Under Arians it didn't even matter if we had a back-up tight end on the roster, though.

Matt Spaeth's game never really translated to the NFL. I remember watching him in the Big 10 and he was a match-up problem all year during his final college season. It just went unnoticed since he did it in Minnesota. Although he did still get enough votes to win the Mackey award that year. He just has an awkward build. He's wiry but not fast and not that strong so not much of a blocker either.

Steelers also had interest in Kellen Davis (Bears TE) in UFA this past off-season. Very glad they lost out on that sweepstakes. He's also a terrible blocker and has been dropping everything thrown to him this season. Dude got booed off the field multiple times tonight.

I think Spaeth would have turned a corner this year with two tight end sets and being so committed to short passes.

I would like to see us draft another tight end sooner rather than later. Heath is 30, and if we're going to play this offense, not a single reason at all we couldn't run tight ends like the Pats do.

Yeah, I think we will draft a TE in 2014 or 2015, maybe Kyle Carter or Matt Lehman from PSU. O'Brien is known for developing great tight ends.

The only player I'm a bit worried tonight about is McCluster. I honestly don't see the Chiefs being able to compete with us tonight.

Former Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach is in the news again for the same stuff that got him ****canned from Texas Tech. Wideout for Washington State is claiming mistreatment and abuse from Leach.

Considering they would have received a first and goal instead of missing that FG, it's a big deal since they likely win that game over Notre Dame, knocking them out of the national title race.

Hope the Steelers don't play like they usually do against bad teams and Haley goes mental against the team who fired him and calls 10 deep bombs to Wallace
