    So, in the third quarter, there were still about 28 minutes left to play in the FSU v. Savannah State game. Weather's been pretty bad here, so after the second weather delay, they just called the game, with the "final" score at 55-0. I've been to 90% of FSU home games for the last thirteen years and I can never remember a game that was actually "called". How common is this?

    I've never seen a game called before. I really want to know what happens to everyone that took FSU to win by 70+. Do they get their money back since the game wasn't completed?

    I can't remember one being called either.

    In other news, the Nebraska/UCLA game is shaping up to be a good one so far.

    Yeah, it's realy baffling. We were on pace to get triple digits. I would think they'll just negate all the bets, refund them.

    Michigan had one called a couple of years ago against Western Michigan, but it is very rare. That game was, oddly enough, much closer as well.

    Every one of them. However I don't think that many of them (or I hope they wouldn't) would go into the realm of sacrificing health, family, and a program's health for that success. I don't know . . .

    WTF :(

    Pathetic. I don't care how many starters are injured. Bama is gonna beat us by 50.

    This is just proof how good of a coach Petrino was. I didn't get to see the game, (because I'm in Canada) but a lot of y friends said the play calling was abysmal in the second half. Our defense is always going to be our achilles heel, but with the offense we have, we still should be able to run over some teams. This is pretty much par for the course of being a Razorback fan though.

    That Arkansas score was a real surprise.

    I love the way this Georgia game ended, though. I was on the edge of my seat for a while, there, too.

    FSU and Savannah State even agreed to a running clock in the second quarter.

    Why did the Michigan game get called?

    Turns out it was just last year. http://www.michigandaily.com/sports/update-michigan-leads-western-michigan-20-10-halftime

    Michigan State looks to be the class of the Big 10. I hope they don't screw it up. After the Big 10 championship game last year, we State fans deserve to finally get to see them in the Rose Bowl.

    When we first got the one we ultimately named Gator, I lobbied for "Tebow" (because he's the dumbest dog ever) and "Urban Crier" (because he spent all night the first week or so we had him whining). My wife, the human Gator of the house, was not receptive.


    Yeah, I saw it. Horrifying.



    I saw an article that said all bets were off. Basically, they just didn't happen.


    I know I shouldn't be happy about it, because it's not great for my team's conference, but I couldn't help but :crackup: when I saw that.


    It ended really well, and it's great to see that they can pull out a road win like that after being so flat early in the game, but it was still aggravating as hell to watch. I was certain the game was over for UGA when Mizzou got out in front early in the third. The Dawgs just looked so flat, almost like they didn't care.

    We went to a new Tex-Mex place and caught the last minute of A&M/Florida followed by the beginning of Washington/LSU. Washington really brought the heat for the first couple of minutes.
