So an athletic qb with a canon arm is beating up a team from the MAC. Allen has talent but he's a project for sure.


Oh, I'm not saying he's good. If you'll remember, I hate him as a first round pick. I'm just saying, he should destroy a MAC defense and he is. Just like he should have destroyed MWC defenses all year and didn't.

He'd be a great third-round pick.

Allen threw 6 passes in the second half. Completed 3 of em. 57% for the game. He doesn't hit enough receivers for me. That's the long and the short of it.

This used to be the only time of year I would ever watch college football. I honestly don't remember ever having watched a 6-6 team.

Didn't "Bowls" used to mean something?

You're bowl eligible if you go 6-6. Only certain bowls really mean something.

Currently 78 bowl games, 12th consecutive year teams with non winning seasons are allowed to participate. This year 19% or 15 teams had .500 seasons
Some bowl games ie playoffs have meaning in so far as to who becomes the national championship but the rest seem to have become the "participation trophy" for a season

It's not about the "participation trophy" bowl games. It's all about the money. Almost all of them pay several million. And I think there's only a handful that pay less than a million. The big business of college football.

I can't wait to see DeVry University take out ITT Technical Institute. They're serious about success you know.

That ref who ejected Snell should never work a game again.

I'd file a formal protest against that ref and refuse to allow my team to play in a game he's reffing.
