CFB Saturday Tailgate!

It's our weekly college football Saturday tailgate! Pre-game, mid-game and post-game, break down all the plotlines and intrigues that develop over the course of the day. I, of course, will be spending the day getting ready for -- then obsessing through -- the Florida-LSU game. I expected Herbstreit to pick against them, but Corso's pick of UF was a bit of a shock.

Meanwhile, I'm not sure there's a better College GameDay background than Florida. The best sign was a clever student who had a picture of Borat in a UF tank-top, along with the phrase "Great Success."

I think Borat is going to be THE dominant pop-culture icon between now and the end of the year. When his image is crashing College GameDay in Gainesville, that's a huge sign. Success!!

Get on those Comments, y'all, and have fun this afternoon watching games.

Home Slice,

Borat made an appearance on a sign when the Game Day crew was at Southern Cal. It was the same picture and the sign read, "very nice". By they way, that movie has recieved some unbelievable reviews from a few european film festivals, so much so that there has been some oscar wispers for Sacha Cohen. That's probably a bit out of the question but I think that says a ton about the movie.

Florida wins if: They put constant pressure on JaMarcus, he will throw picks. Leak doesn't have his standard one or two stupid mistakes that result in turn overs and they figure out some sort of running game. It would also be nice if Hetland made a f-ing field goal.

Wow. Two surprising halftime scores and one that I know I figured.

First, Auburn is down 7 to Arkansas at the half. I'm guessing Auburn pulls it off, but now people are really going to question their status at #2.

Second, Clemson is down 14-3 to Wake Forest. I'm not sure if this says Clemson isn't as good as people think or if Wake is better than people think. I think Wake is better.

The unsurprising one to me is Iowa 20, Purdue 3. IOwa is pissed about last week. Tate is pissed at himself for playing like a retard. This is a statement game for them and they are making it.

how's auburn looking at #2 there?

I'm not even a fan of the Razorbacks but I've enjoyed the hell out of watching them dismantle Auburn this afternoon.
Next up... Texas-OU, baby. Adrian Peterson and the "Best Texans Money Can Buy" are about to go down in flames.
Texas 24-OU 7.

Geoff-Detroit said...

Auburn's next stop, somewhere out of the top 10.

Maher said...

auburn? more like awwww-burn.

As a Bama fan, the only thing better than a Crimson Tide victory is an AU-ful performance by the Tigers. Go Hogs!

Brian in Oxford said...

At the risk of sounding like TMQ, why was Auburn punting, down by 17 with 2:20 left? Were they trying to keep the margin of victory down? Geez....Arkansas was going to run out the clock either at THEIR 30, or at Auburn's 30 if they didn't make it.

well, with auburn (formerly my pick) losing to the razorbacks, that will go to usc.

the sec will kill themselves for the bcs...

if anyone gets out there unscathed, they HAVE to be in BCS championship game @ glendale

Doc Spender said...

Damn... I'll give Stoops his bitching anb bellyaching about the loss to Oregon but damn if hasn't since become the biggest sideline crybaby I've ever seen and I've been watching college ball since 1960!
The fact is that even though Peterson is getting his yards the Texas D isn't letting any other Sooner beat them.
Go Horns!

How young does Colt McCoy look on the post game interview? Seeing that makes me feel old.

It's nice to have a weekend where no one is talking about Notre Dame.

What about Tebow? 2-2, 2TD.

Maher said...

Random thoughts on the day:

LSU could not have played worse if they tried. How many fumbles / ints did they have? And FLA still only won by 13 at home?

PAC-10 officials once again screw up. Anyone watch the end of the USC game?

MSU is terrible. Fire Coach Slappy now.

Tex beats OU, yet OSU will still get no credit for beating TEX.

Top 4 should look like this

OSU
FLA
MICH
WVU

Maher said...

tebow's pass was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. I could have done without VL slurping on Lou Holtz as the reason that play was in Meyer's playbook...he doesn't even call the plays right?

Maher said...

as for Corso, when was the last time he DIDN'T pick the home team Dan?

He always does it to be a crowd pleasing sideshow. He brings no value to the first 1:59:30 of the show.

fire mike shula...

duke is statistically beating alabama's ass in the first half.

TF said...

Wow Duke up on Bama 14-10...Man that looks bad...

Matt Hooper Presents said...

For those keeping track, here is a Shula coaching background:

Don: 347-173-6. Enough said.

David: began as a coach for the Dolphins under Don. Moved to Dallas as an offensive coordinator in 1989. The Cowboys finished 1-15-0 and were shut out 3 times. Head coach of the Bengals from 1992 to 1997, went 19-53. Now cutting steaks for a living.

Mike: Has losses against Northern Illinois, Hawaii and South Carolina. No wins against LSU or Auburn. One win against Arkansas in four tries. 0-14 when trailing after three quarters.

And during his signature win over the Gators last year, he left our one playmaker in the blowout for a quarter too long, probably ending his career. Our offense, for which he calls the plays, has sucked ever since.

Oh. And he is trying to give Duke the biggest upset of the year. I hear their is a lot of money in the restaurant business...Mike?

FreKy J said...

Ok, did anyone else who watched the S.Carolina/Kentucky game want to vomit everytime Andre Ware started gushing man-love for the Kentucky QB? For a minute I thought Ware was going to go down on the sidelines and give the guy a blowjob.

How bout them gators. Sure it was ugly but a w is a w.

chiefs fan in charlotte said...

I agree with Matt Hooper...FIRE Mike Shula. Duke is possibly the worst team in the country!!! How can you not destroy them? Add that in with the fact they cost me a 4 team parlay today, Mike Shula should not only be on the hot seat, but he should be embarrassed to be a head coach in the SEC.

CF in C -
What about Tebow? I believe those stats match L. Tomlinson's career passing stats pretty well, unless he's thrown a third touchdown by now. And the deal is the same - guys throwing to the endzone on surprising and well-designed trick plays succeed if they don't fuck up.

We hear enough stats, don't make too much of a stat that obviously doesn't matter at all.
