If Iowa blasts Michigan at home .... might it be the end for Harbaugh??

I saw some crazy stats on just how bad Michigan has been in "big" games under Harbaugh, despite his fairly stellar overall winning percentage. Seems like that is confirmed by the horrible loss to Wisconsin follow up by crushing Rutgers a week later.

Hope NW can get back on track and soften Nebraska up.


PAC champ is now guaranteed to be at least a 1-loss team, they're hoping like heck that a team like Oregon, Washington, or Utah can emerge with 1-loss and get in the playoff over some other 1-loss team. They desperately need Ohio St, Oklahoma, and/or Clemson to lose to someone.

Figured I’d move on over from the thread about the Gophers in the Rose Bowl and/or national playoff to report Georgia Southern is down late against South Alabama on ESPNU.

They are playing with their first string QB (as opposed to the backup that played against the Gophers) and have put up 10 points through half the fourth quarter. Down 14-10.

Probably not exactly pushing the Sagarin up for MN.

Any predictions? I like looking for "upsets"... As much as I hate iowa I think they have a decent chance at Michigan. And it's about that time of the season where Northwestern starts winning so I bet they beat Nebraska

Yikes, their best defensive player got injured, and they had to carry him off the field...the one who returned the blocked FG for a TD against us. Looks like this season will be a trainwreck for them.

There should be a Talon sighting in this thread.

Gave up a field goal but with their backs against the wall and time running out, drove down to the 5 yard line.

Scored the tying TD. Looks like overtime. Georgia Southern is 1-3 and South Alabama is 1-4 with a respectable loss to Nebraska.

17-17 with 20 seconds left.

GA STATE with a big penalty after getting the first down in OT.
Re-did 3rd and six and didn't get it, and Werts was across the line of scrimmage. They will need to make a FG and have their defense stop USA.


South Ala is 0 for 9 on 3rd down conversions today. Both TD's were long plays. Only 4 first downs for South AL.

Both teams have respectable defenses, but brutal offenses. The triple option bag of tricks isn’t fooling anyone this season, except for Maine.

S Alabama missed FG too. They play on!
