9 cpu games week 2 - should be interesting for us to all gauge our teams here at the same time...
The Bruins go into Athens, Georgia and win an ugly game against the Bulldogs, 10-0. A defensive struggle to say the least. UCLA managed 168 total yards with their new and improved offense. That seemed like a ton compared to Georgia's 21 yards of total offense. UCLA had 8 first downs while the Bulldogs managed just one. Both teams had the turnover bug as well, with Georgia throwing 4 picks and the Bruins tossing 3 of their own.
UCLA starting QB Bernard Russ was knocked of the game early and will miss at least the next 8 weeks. Both Senior Jake Schroeder and Freshman Gerren Wilson saw playing time throughout the rest of the contest, with Schroeder looking like the odds on starter for the time being.
As I said, an ugly win, but on the road against the SEC, we'll take it. The Bruins head home to take on Ohio State next week. Say your prayers for the Bruins in that one!
QB Jake Schroeder 9/12 107 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
QB Bernard Russ 1/4 6 Yards
QB Gerren Wilson 1/5 15 Yards, 0 TD, 2 INT's
HB Jamaal Harvey 13 Carries, 52 Yards
WR Clifton Sanders 3 Catches, 45 Yards

Michigan St. 32
MSU avenged last year’s lopsided loss to Alabama by going on the road and getting a huge shutout. The offense will take a while to improve because AJ Gordon must throw to a bunch of freshmen receivers. Gordon won the job as Jeremiah Lane just couldn’t get a pass off. Lane was sacked 4 times in 1 quarter of play and was only able to throw 1 pass, an incompletion. Gordon had 209 passing yards and 3 TD, but threw 2 picks. Senior TE Kevin Alexander may be Gordon’s favorite target with these true freshmen still figuring out their roles. Alexander caught 3 passes, 2 for TD’s. CB Jason Woods had a good game, intercepting 2 passes while having a productive day returning punts.
AJ Gordon (QB)- 18-30 for 209 yards, 3 TD, 2 INT
Ryan Keith (HB)- 7 carries for 39 yards
Brian Bryan (HB)- 13 carries for 76 yards
Kevin Alexander (TE)- 3 receptions for 39 yards, 2 TD
Paul Green (OLB)- 9 tackles, 2 TFL, sack
Jason Woods (CB)- tackles, 2 INT
The Steven White Era starts off with a bang as Nebraska downs #6 Auburn at home 24-0 , keeping them from even sniffing the endzone all game. In a game where everyone was looking at new QB, HB Buck Anderson stole the show, with 19 Carries 135 yards and 1 TD he showed he is ready to fill the shoes of departed campus legend Mark Mackey. QB Steven White finished the day 15-26 215 yards, 1 TD and 2 Ints.
The Coaching staff was pleased with his performance, 1 int was a hail mary at the end of the first half and the other was a tipped pass. He connected with WR Bryan Larson 7 times and hit TE Nick Ham on a beautiful flag route right into the endzone for his first TD pass. Both offensive lines were bad and gave up 4 sacks but one team was able to overcome it while the other wasn't.
Next up another bye week as they prepare to host Boise State.
Sun Devils Kick-Off the Season with Win
Top NIU 28-7
Northern Illinois took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter after methodically driving down the field. Following an Arizona State interception, the Huskies were poised to extend the lead when HB Stan Ramirez fumbled. Arizona St. would recover the fumble and take all the momentum, scoring the game's last 28 points. It took a while for the Sun Devils to get things going, but once Freshman QB Cory Malone settled down the offense began to move the ball. Malone connected twice for touchdown in the 2nd quarter, first to TE Dee Jenkins from 16 yards out, then with WR Noah Easley from 24. The Arizona State defense also began to tighten up in the 2nd quarter, preventing the Huskies from reaching the red zone for the remainder of the game. The second half saw the Arizona State running game begin to establish itself as the NIU defensive line began to tire. Impact HB Charles Mills took advantage, rushing for 159 yards on 15 carries. The Sun Devils would put the game away in the 4th quarter with a couple of rushing touchdowns that concluded time consuming drives.
QB Cory Malone - 9/18, 94 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT
HB Charles Mills - 15 carries, 159 yards
TE Dee Jenkins - 3 receptions, 39 yards, 1 TD
LE Pedro Brown - 5 tackles, TFL, sack
CB Ryan Rutledge - 2 tackles, 2 FF, 2 PD
P Mark Dickens - 4 punts, 53 avg, 49 net avg
G. Tech 17
The Cougars defense played awesome forcing five turnovers and scoring on three of them. The first occurred in the third quarter when FS Daniel Brown picked up a fumble on a muffed option play and took it 29 yards for a score. In the fourth quarter CB Eric Miller picked off a pass and took it 57 yards for the score, tying the game at 17-17 a piece. Then after WSU QB Casey Mills threw a seven yard TD pass to TE Beau "All I Catch Are TD Passes" Bush to give the Cougars the lead with less than 80 seconds remaining in the game, DE Kelvin Smith picked up a fumble and rumbled 17 yards for the score making it 31-17. After stopping GT, WSU refused to take a knee and Mills threw his second TD pass of the game.
Generally, I don't run it up, but I was F'NG PISSED this morning. No matter how many files we use, I have the same conclusion the game is out to get Washington State. I recruited a fast running back, Matt Moore (94 SPD, 85 ACC, a couple of seasons ago, redshirted him last season, and on the first F'NG PLAY of the game he breaks his F'NG ARM or something and is out for 8 weeks. Then compound that with GT jumping out to a 17-0 lead to start the game, it just unbelievable.
Penn St Starts Slow but Finishes Strong
Took a bit for PSU to find its identity on defense. On offense McBride got the start over Sellers. McBride looked strong but still missed a few more open WRs than his coach could tolerate. This seasons playing time will likely go to the hottest hand, and with the QBs going 4 deep on the roster who knows where the playing time will go. Greg Hill looked stellar in his few carries. He is poised to be an extremely explosive player, but with no depth at HB coach whygod will be using him sparingly. The player to watch this season will be WR Ed Hall. Hall comes into his senior season already the Penn st record holder for career TDs, but the end of the season he may well hold every Penn st receiving record and possibly a few NCAA records. He got off to a good start with 7 catches for 160 yards and 2 TDs.
im not the only one now!
The game F'NG BS
I figured that would be your response
IFlorida 31 @ Cal 24
This game was heading the way of the Golden Bears, with a 3-0 lead and a 4th and 3 from the 34 yard line of Florida. The decision was to tack 3 more points on the board, although it was a risk as it was the freshman kicker's 2nd try ever in college. From 51 yards, he hit the crossbar, and suddenly momentum was wearing a Florida Jersey. 3 out of the next 4 Gator possessions ended in tds, and Cal was struggling to move the ball behind the erratic arm of Bonner, the senior 1st year starter at qb.
And then finally the reigning returner of the year, Steve Gordon, gave the Bears some life flying untouched through a group of defeners and then taking it down the left sideline for 6. Bonner then connected on the next drive on a deep pass to speedster Sam Patterson, resulting in a td to make it 21-17 late in the 3rd. The the Bears were primed to start the 4th qtr with momentum. But after a 3 and out, Gordon tried to do too much and got stripped on the punt return setting up the Florida touchdown that really killed the Bears chances of coming back. Cal really competed still and even had a chance to tie it, but Bonner missed receivers on the final drive, as he had all day and Cal was sent out of their own stadium with a loss.
Coach Jayrah: "We thought Bonner was the better choice with his senior status, and we know it was his first start, but we missed 3 or 4 touchdowns that gou can't miss. Omar Smith will get the start against Michigan State. I liked our fight overall, but we can't play the same on defense as we did last year. We just don't have the corners to do it, but we'll figure it out. We'll get better this week and come ready against MSU."
Colorado relies on the big play to defeat Washington State. Colorado's running back, Brandon Bates rushed for over 200 yards and scored two touchdowns. His TD runs were from 41 and 47 yards out. In addition the Buffaloes scored on a 72 yard TD pass from Shaun Leonard to Zach McKenzie. All of this occurring in the first half. WSU was able to score points in the first half, scoring on a 57 yard TD pass from Casey Mills to Mark Palmer, and then on a 3 yard TD pass from Mills to Daniel Smith. However, for most of the game the Cougar offense just couldn't move the ball consistently leading to this stunning defeat.
As I waste my afternoon away at work, I was looking at the scores so far in the PAC-12 and I think USC would like Dru50 back at the helm. They lost to a FCS School 28-0. While the Huskies after going 0fer last season including a loss to a FCS School, got some revenge beating a FCS School 63-10.
How the hell does a team like USC lose to an FCS school. I know they are still rated very high...they were beast on CPU last year.
That's what happens when you lose the best coach EVER.
I don't know, FCS East (There is more than one) beat Arizona and USC. Apparently we should give them a shot at Stanford.
im open to that challenge
They didnt lose him, he QUIT
I choose to believe that he saw Stanford rising as a juggernaut, and got out of dodge while the gettin' was good
Keep dreaming sunshine!
i plan to. now stop quoting my posts and let me sleep!
I would bet about anything if Dru came back tomorrow, he would beat your team this season. I am just saying
Nah, I just got tired of kicking your monkey ass up and down the field every season. I needed a new challenge.
Let me guess, the one time I beat you, you "let" me win to help my self-esteem?
