Illini Improve to 9-2 Minneapolis, Minnesota played host to the Fighting Illini who are looking to build the schools rep as no longer being a basketball school as their football team is trying to have one of its best seasons in a long time. While most of the games played haven't been easy they have still pulled out the victories and that is all that counts. Struggling on the recruiting trail Illinois was out to prove to the recruits that this is now a school they may want to take a second look at. They played strong this week and handed Minnesota a thumping as all aspects of the game were played strong. Illinois would make long drives and score which has been their bread and butter all year long. Double digit play drives have been the staple of the Illini offense as they know they don't have a homerun threat. So they choose to play to their strengths and they did that very well this week. First quarter there was no scoring as been the case in most of the Illini games this season. The second quarter Illinois started off with a 1yd run by Becker to give the Illini a 7-0 lead. Minnesota would answer with a FG but Illinois would drive right back down the field and score on a 6yd Ferguson run to take a 14-3 lead. Minnesota would add a FG before halftime to cut the lead to 14-6. Second half the Illini came out and stuffed Minnesota on the opening drive and would turn that into a 7yd td reception by Lankford to give the Illini a 21-6 lead. The defense would force another punt but this time Millines would take the punt 63yds for a td to give the Illini a 28-6 lead. Minnesota would answer with a 31yd td pass of their own and make the two point conversion to make it a 28-14 game. That would be all Minnesota could muster on offense and Illinois would add a 9yd td pass to Wilson to make the game 35-14. Nathan Scheelhaase was 14-19 196yds 2td 1intYoung ran 24times for 84ydsWr had no stand out as 7 different guys caught at least one pass. As usual the Illini continue to not have a standout at Wr and everyone seems to get a chance to catch the ball. Come on WR recruits you get the ball here.Defensively Buchanan continued to play strong as he had 4 tackles and 2 more sacks this weak. Next week Illinois is on a bye and then they finish the year out with the much hated Northwestern Wildcats. Then onto a bowl game which hopefully will be a good bowl as Illinois tries to get past the 3* prestige school and grab better recruits.
OSU is done recruiting for the week and ready to wiscy tomorrow night?! it would be awesome if we could advance tomorrow night so trey and I could play afterwards. i work monday night so tuesday night will be the only other time i could play.
pretty much because I'm at the race track both Mon & Tues nights...Monday's I don't get home til 11 or 12...Tuesdays, usually the same, sometimes a LITTLE earlier if I don't go out to dinner.
Ill be playing this evening most likely.
Well for the 3rd straight week we're going to have Oregon included in our GOTW. This wasn't planned but after the big win over the Trojans we figured they deserved to be the home team for once. Oregon pulled off a huge & unexpected win last week over USC in thrilling fashion. It looked like the Trojans were going to take home a 21-14 victory when QB Bryan Bennet threw up a hail mary and WR Rahsaan Vaught hauled in the reception in a crowd of Trojans and somehow escaped to force OT. It took 4 OT's to decide and Oregon responded to a USC field goal with a touchdown to take the 44-41 victory. They still need some help from Utah to claim the Pac 12 South but either way, they've given themselves a chance. Our other boys out west snagged victories also, Stanford blew out Colorado 48-13 & Cal jumped out to a big lead early over Washington and avoided a late come back to defeat the Huskies 38-31 and become bowl eligible. In the B1G, Michigan stays undefeated but remains #4 in the polls. A 23-0 victory over Northwestern is a little less points then normal from Michigan & QB Denard Robinson was held under 100 yards rushing but in the end that Wolverine defense allowed nothing. Wisconsin beat a lowly Troy squad 49-14 to become bowl eligible as the Badgers look to end there season on a high note. In the SEC, the Gamecocks had the week off to prepare for the big matchup with Arkansas. The Razorbacks knocked off Tennessee 45-13, Missouri got a huge win over Florida with a 41-35 overtime victory while Texas A&M was finally on the good end of a close game. They've lost nail biter after nail biter so it was big for the Aggies to hang off and beat Mississippi State 41-36. The conference races have been settled in a few conferences, Ohio State & Michigan will square off in the B1G Championship a week after they play the annual rivalry at the end of the season. Stanford all but sealed the Pac 12 North, even losing out they'll hold the head to head tiebreaker over Cal while on the South side, Utah is still undefeated and Oregon will need the Ute's to stub their toe in 2 of there final 4 games. Arkansas has the SEC east locked up. LSU got absolutely waxed by Alabama last week suffering a 37-7 defeat but still has a 1 game lead over Missouri who they hold a head to head over, this could be another rematch as LSU/Arkansas will play in the season finale & then the possibility again in the SEC title game. All this means nothing if these teams go out and lay an egg, especially Oregon. A loss to Cal this week would end any hopes of playing in the Pac 12 Championship. Cal has been an up and down squad. They've taken losses to teams they shouldn't have lost too while they hang with teams that they aren't expected to. The Bears are 1 step away from grabbing a big win, can it be this week or will Oregon ride the big momentum, take home field advantage and blow out the Bears ? Oregon will need to stop WR Keenan Allen, or at least contain the kid & they should be fine... We'll see...

Texas A&M gets destoyed by Alabama 44-3 on the road. The defense actually played well for most of the game, but was just put in bad position after bad position by the offense. We did knock McCarron out for 3 weeks but by then it was too late to mount any time of comeback as the Bama defense was just insanely good. The stat of the game was Jameill Shower's 10 (yes, that is not a typo, 10!!), turnovers including 9 interceptions and 1 fumble. Not much else to say other than that as to what happened today.
I'm looking forward to the end of this season. I'm not sure next season is going to be any better as I lose a good portion of what is already a bad defense. It's going to be a long year for me.
Holy crap! I hope your recruiting is going well at least.
Well, I'm getting lots of high 60's, low 70's 3 star guys. I'm not sure how guys develop this year, if they don't get in the low/mid 80's by the time they are juniors/seniors I am in trouble.
Oh, and Bama must have had a stretch where someone was injured to have the record they have. They killed LSU last week, then this week's debacle. They seem to be in full beast mode now.
that's what I was about to say
Hoosier Daddy Indiana ? Madison, Wi -- After 3 straight road games Wisconsin was back home and they responded well against the Hoosiers of Indiana. On the opening kickoff, return man James White took the kick back all the way to open things with a 91 yard touchdown return. Indiana led by QB Tre Roberson started the Indiana possession in Wisconsin territory after a kickoff a great return themselves. Roberson went no huddle and marched down the field. Indiana converted a 3rd & 13 to move Inside the Wisconsin 5 yard line but on 3 straight plays the Badger defense made the stops & Indiana settled on a short field goal to trail 7-3. After a few traded possessions, Wisconsin struck again. The Badgers were just inside the 40 yard line when O'Brien found WR Jared Abbrederis on a quick slant and away Abbrederis went for the 33 yard touchdown to jump on top 14-3 at the end of 1. Early in the 2nd, Indiana again moved into Wisconsin territory but this time the field goal was short & the Badgers took over. At the 50 yard line on 2nd down, O'Brien hit WR Chase Hammond on a deep route and Hammond out ran the Indiana defense for the 48 yard touchdown to hold a 21-3 lead approaching the halfway point of the 2nd quarter. The two squads traded out possessions until Wisconsin received the final possession of the opening half with 20 seconds remaining and starting the series at midfield. O'Brien hit Abbrederis on two straight passes down the sideline and the 2nd reception was good for another Wisconsin touchdown from 35 yards out as Wisconsin went into the locker rooms up 28-3. Indiana started the 2nd half with a 3 and out. The Hoosiers were really struggling on offense with QB Tre Roberson & HB Stephen Houston both out of the game. Roberson left with a broken ribs and out for 4 weeks & Houston will miss the rest of the season with a broken vertebrae. Wisconsin marched down the field once again and capped off another drive with a touchdown, this time it was running back Montee Ball getting in the pay dirt from 4 yards out to give Wisconsin a 35-3 lead. The Badger defense once again stopped Indiana & added on another field goal late in the quarter to jump on top 38-3. Indiana marched into Wisconsin territory but didn't get much further then midfield and attempted a field goal. James White caught the field goal and returned it the whole way 106 yards for another Wisconsin touchdown. The 2nd stringers came in on both sides of the ball, 3rd stringer Melvin Gordon got a touchdown late in the 4th and the defense continued to hold Indiana to nothing as Wisconsin moves to 7-3 on the season with the 52-3 victory on Saturday. The Badgers will host Ohio State next week before ending there season with a trip to Happy Valley against the Nittany Lions.

The undefeated Wolverines traveled to Evanston in hopes of keeping their perfect season in tact as this Wildcat team could prove to be tricky as they have some real talent and could beat anyone on any given day. Michigan again started a bit slow as the Wildcat defense would not really give any room to heisman hopeful Denard Robinson so it was basically Fitzgerald Toussaint getting the majority of the carries. All the offense could muster in the opening quarter was a Brendon Gibbons 19yd FG. Thankfully for the Michigan fans in attendance they showed why they are one of the better teams in all of college football in the second quarter. The Northwestern defense still wasn't giving the Wolverines much on the ground so Denard went to the air! He would use his arm to move the squad down the field but it was his leg's from 2yds out that gave Michigan a 10-0. After another Gibbons FG, Denard would hit Jeremy Gallon from 27yds out to give the Wolverines a commanding 20-0 lead and that was our score at the break. Northwestern's defense held on Michigan's opening possession and they used that momentum to get back a FG but that was as close as it would get. The next Michigan drive would stall but P Will Hagerup would pin the Wildcats at the one with a beautiful punt and that's when the tough Michigan defense would step in and make their big play. On a first down, Treyvon Green tried to bounce a run outside but the Wolverine defense would be ready and stuff him for a safety. Now 22-3, this game was all but over. After the Wildcat punt, Michigan and Denard really started to hit their stride. First it was a Denard to TE Brandon Moore 16yd strike to give the Wolverines a 29-3 lead. It was only Moore's second catch on the season.. Kind of a shocking number seeing he's our #1 TE but it just shows that the TE is basically a blocker in this offense. After a Blake Countess pick deep into Michigan territory, Denard again would strike with his arm when he hit Roy Roundtree on a beautiful out and up perfectly in stride for a 77yd TD score and a 36-10 lead. Gibbons would another FG and a Northwestern TD would give us our final in Evanston of... Michigan 39 Northwestern 17 With the win, Michigan moves to 10-0 and only Iowa stands in the way of the Wolverines going to Columbus undefeated.. That game will surely be the most anticipated game of the season in all of College Football. It's obvious there is no love lost between the two first year coaches in Ann Arbor and Columbus. It will be interesting to see how the Buckeyes can handle the mounting pressure as they need to concentrate as they have the pesky Wisconsin Badgers first.

Got beat by Nachos, great game man, Man press every play does wonders for a defense. Need to get in some practice against it I guess.
I've noticed it also.. Hopefully guy's aren't doing it every play. It's way too overpowered.
It was literally every play from the second quarter on, but that's fine, still had a chance to win the game but 2 fumbles did me in and I got away from my running game too. Nachos did nothing wrong, he has a tough defense and I just didn't make the adjustments needed.
The 'Cocks Finally Play Hard
It has certainly been a disappoint season for Coach Nacho and his Gamecocks. Expectations were to high, but not one expected for them to be 5-5 and fighting for a bowl game. No one really gave them a chance in this one and I don't blame them.
The first quarter started off as everyone expected and it looked like it was over before it started. Tyler Wilson found Herndon from 5 yards out for the early 0-7 lead. South Carolina couldn't do shit as the Arkansas linebackers were flying to the ball. After a punt Arkansas drove back down again this time Davis ran it in from 3 yards out making it 0-14 going into the second quarter.
Things settled down in the second quarter as SC stepped up on defense and started forcing some punts of their own. They finally had got a break on dump off pass. Smith broke a tackle by a CB, then one by the safety and took it 75 yards to make the score 7-14 with 3:47 to go. The momentum didn't last long as Arkansas had a big play of their own just 30 seconds later. Wilson connected with Herndon who went untouched 59 yards to push the lead back to 14, 7-21. Clearly scared of Lattimore Arkansas kept out one safety deep. Just 1:20 later McEvoy lobbed it deep and Sanders ran past the corner in single coverage for a 50 yard touchdown that made it 14-21 with 1:58 left in the half. Both teams had the ball again before the end of the half, but couldn't do anything with it.
Arkansas got the second half kick and were forced to punt. SC drove down with the help of a big run by McEvoy down to the 1 and it was eventually punched in by Gilchrist to even the score at 21-21. The quick strike offense of Arkansas hadn't gone anywhere though. Wilson threw it to Horton for a 26 yard touchdown to push the lead back to 21-28. Later in the quarter SC added a 38 yard field goal making it 24-28 going into the fourth quarter.
In the 4th quarter some home field advantage finally started kicking in for the Gamecocks. The defense decided they were actually going to create some fucking turnovers. An early interception didn't lead to anything. I don't remember the order this shit happened, but in the fourth Wilson had an interception and two lost fumbles. I think the interception was first and that lead to a 49 yard pass from McEvoy to Sanders for the 31-28 lead with 6:11 left to play. Some other shit happened, then Arkansas got the ball back again. Wilson dropped back for a screen that was set up beautifully, the SC DT superman punched his fucking ass and forced a fumble that was recovered by SC. That lead to a 32 yard field that put SC up 34-28 with 3:47. Which is pretty much useless since Arkansas can score so fast. The SC defense was committing everyone to the pass. This let Wilson get a few good runs, but the defense finally wised up. With a defender now spying the QB they were set, Wilson took off and got his ass blown up again and dropped the ball which was again recovered by SC. This lead to the 35 yard dagger field goal with 1:59 to play. Arkansas didn't get anything going, I think they turned it over again. I have a best buy gift card so I might get a HDD that isn't useless and I'll actually be able to see the play by play after the game. SC got the ball back and kneeled out the remaining time for one of the bigger upsets of the season so far.
The stats were fairly even. The biggest advantage with South Carolina with 0 turnovers, compared to Arkansas' 4. Tyler Wilson finished with 405 yards passing, 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on 20/44 passing. The bum SC threw out there had 326 yards and 3 touchdowns on 12/20 passing. Lattimore was a workhorse again running it 31 times for 99 yards and finally broke some tackles. His yards after contact was 72. The Arkansas running game wasn't there. Knile Davis had a long of 30 yards, his total ended up being 37 on 12 carries. Arkansas' Cobi Hamilton beasted it with 6 catches for 134 yards, but also had two crucial drops. Ace Sanders' was the MVP of the game. His ability to blow past the single coverage led to 200 yards receiving and two touchdowns. A state that usually doesn't get looked at is pancakes. The SC offensive line had 27 mother fucking flapjacks and gave up only 1 sack. The SC defense had 12 deflections. Arkansas had 486 yards of offense compared to 472 for SC. Neither team had a penalty, which is always good.
Nachos Played a great game, I figured out what defense he was running and I got some stuff ready for him next year, haha. It was a very fun game, this Hog team will need to learn how to hold onto a lead against users as they gave up big lead to USC and USC.
Man press falls into the realm of not mixing up play calling. Do not do this a lot on defense. If you feel you're abusing it, you probably are.
Well dang i havent used it once yet maybe i should throw it in a couple plays per game
Having trouble connecting to Live and we are having storms. I'm trying to get this game in asap.
Yeah it's really broken this year. Leave it to Nachos to exploit the broken features
