Both of you should stop posting about things you don't know about.

 

1.  Bama fans will not be eating crow if Oklahoma wins.  Alabama fans love Hurts and the vast majority of their fans will be cheering for Hurts to win.

 

2.  Hurts is not a bum, he is a very good college QB and an outstanding person.  Saban did not boot Hurts from Alabama.  Hurts made the decision to leave Alabama so that he could start for another team, just like J. Fields did by the way. 

 

Haha.. someone's a little butt hurt

 

I completely disagree, but whatever. Good Samaritan aside, he lost his job to a freshmen in the biggest game of his life , got shelved away, and yes, then decided to leave. Semantics. Either way, he couldn't cut it at Bama.

 

As far as Fields, he probably realized that Kirby wasn't going to go away from Fromm and found his way out. I believe had Fields stayed, he'd probably be the starter in Georgia right now and they would be in the CFP. There is a significant difference in talent, and situation, between Fields and Hurts. Beating up on trash Big12 defenses, in a gimmick offense, doesn't impress anyone.

You really keep showing that you have no idea what you are talking about.  Keep posting clueless information through, if that's what turns you on.

Considering the "you Hurt my feelings" rebuttal, my response was pretty accurate to the situation. I'm starting to think you're an upset Bama fan..

No, I actually just want to see good games.  Your response was dumb, as was your first post regarding Hurts.  Hurts cut it just fine at Alabama until he was beat out by a QB, Tua, that was arguably the number one pick in the NFL Draft until a freak injury occurred.  Which, by the way, Tua was in competition for that top spot by Burrow, who transferred from where?  You know.  I know you are an Ohio State fan, they have an excellent team, but there is no reason to call Hurts a bum or that he couldn't cut it when both of those statements are patently untrue.  Try supporting your team without running down other team's players, who in many cases are not only very good players, but very good people.

Indiana would have to beat Tennessee tonight for the Big Ten to have a winning record this year in bowls.   Currently 4-4.

 

 

Really rooting for the Hoosiers...Tom Allen has done a magnificent job at IU and has the program moving upward.

I'm not an IU fan, but I'll certainly be rooting for a Big 10 team to beat an SEC team.

Who cares...? I don't and that was never my argument about Hurts. He's a great guy, good for him. However, his article from ESPN last week gave raised some questions, but whatever, again I could care less about who he is off the field. SOOOOO... did he or did he not lose his job to Tua? Did Alabama not completely redesign their offense the following spring, which was tailored heavily to Tua than Jalen? Jalen transferred knowing he was never going to touch the field with Tua there. He's not a good QB, and people can bring up what he did this year in Oklahoma, but as I've stated before, big deal he beat up on % Big 12 teams. It's not a coincidence he got exposed against LSU, and their defense isn't even that good. 

 

I'll use my Buckeyes as an example for Jalen Hurts. JT Barrett was a great guy off the field, but I, and a ton of other fans, couldn't wait for him to go. If it weren't for Cardale Jones, the Buckeyes never sniff the playoffs or even come close to a Championship. Regardless of his stats, he wasn't a good QB, and hurt the team more times than helped them.

The one time a year I actually cringe and root for Michigan... but I'm the same way, I root for all the Big 10 teams during bowl time.

You have to appreciate the 8 win season for Indiana but Coach Allen made two blunders 
1. Saving a timeout in the first half and settled for 3
2. Totally INCOMITENT but not preparing for onside kick and giving up a 13 point lead with 5 minutes to play. 
Pathetic!!!!

Tough loss for IU.  I actually turned it off going into the 4th quarter...felt good about the lead and needed to get to bed.  I recorded it, so I'll go back and see what happened.

 

Regardless, a great season and it helped lay the foundation for more successful seasons to come.

LSU vs Clemson. Who yall got?

 

LSU wins IMO but it'll be a great game. 

The game really doesn't interest me too much.  Maybe I'm just burnt out on football after 4 games this weekend.   The NCAA really misses the boat by not having this game on Friday night.  I'll be in bed before the game is over.

Yeah Monday Night is a weird night but I kind of get why. Theres a pretty good amount of college basketball games on Friday Nights plus they obviously can't do it on Sat or Sun cause of the NFL playoffs. Monday probably really is the best night to do it.

    • I think the confusing part for me is the utilization. This is it for Campbell. This is his final season to prove he belongs in the NFL and right now the colts are not doing him any favors if their not even attempting to get him into space and let him work. 
    • I’m not sure you and I are watching the same defense.   Through 3 games the Colts have played 12 quarters and one full 10 minutes overtime.     IMO, the Colts defense has looked good for 5 quarters and the OT.    I’d say the 4th Q of the Houston game plus the KC game. But the defense was unimpressive for 3 quarters of the Houston game and all 4 quarters of the JVille game.   So that’s 7 bad quarters versus 5 plus good quarters.   That’s hardly coming attractions for a #1 defense.    Compounding your argument our pass rush is a long way from being a top 10 rush to be feared or respected.   They will likely get better this year but enough to help make this the number one overall defense?   Right now this feels like you’re watching our games through Blue tinted glasses.     Hey, I’d be thrilled if you’re right, but for right now,  sorry, I just don’t see what you see. 
    • There were a bottom 2ish to start the season...  They lost to Wentz... and a bad WA team. They beat a bad team, Indy, who let their QB set a new career high again (now twice). Totally out coached.  They beat a highly ranked team, with a QB broken ribs lol... who only goes as a far as QB takes them.
    • I know it gets very old with a few around here. I have never said Matt Ryan is the GOAT. Some people in here are getting ridiculous and can't even be happy with a win.
    • Not really, you said that the Jaguars were a bottom 5 team, that is way wrong. They are 13th in the ESPN power rankings. You said we lost to the Texans, we tied which isn't a loss. How am I spinning things?
