I’m starting a new page for sports discussions!
Any sport topic is fine. Can you guess who these gents are?
In anticipation of the new American Football season, we’ll start anew!
I tuned in for the kick off. Instead I see Gwen Stefani in her throw back outfit.
Well, it’s a disappointing start.
For any sports page on the internet:
“Baseball injury turned around”
Bounty suspensions overturned. But can be reinstated on different terms.
The UW Huskies play LSU today. The point spread is 24–that’s if we’re lucky and only lose by that much.
It’s an early season game, anything can happen. I’m not much of an LSU fan.
LSU may want revenge for not getting the national title last year. Washington may be road kill on that path to getting it this year.
Well, they didn’t quite make the spread. Sorry about that. Looks like LSU will be tough again. And, it could be a long season for Washington. The PAC 10 looks to be strong this year with USC and Oregon. UCLA is about to beat Nebraska if they can hang on.
I think it’s the PAC 12 now, but I have trouble remembering the correct number too. It was PAC 8 for such a long time.
Yeh, it is. All of this conference hopping is bad for the game. I still slip sometimes and call the Big 12 the Big 8. …. sigh.
Yes, it was a poor showing for Washington. The refs were not exactly what I’d call balanced, but that’s the game. I think that one LSU dropped pass was a lateral, but it was a close call.
Well, tomorrow is the NFL!! So, you have a chance at that. They’re playing the Cards…. they should be able to beat them.
My brother is a Cardinal fan, but he’s not happy with their QB situation. I wouldn’t be, either.
I hope they don’t “pull a Seahawk.” That’s when the Seahawks get an early lead, think they’ve won the game, and stop playing.
I know I hate it when my teams do that. I wish them well.
All I can say is your brother must be happy. My only comment is, “Raspberries!”
I don’t understand why when that close to the goal line that they don’t have at least one play to take advantage of the young QB’s mobility and roll him out with an option to pass or run.
He did show he was ready for the NFL.
I didn’t see the game, because my family wanted to go to the Puyallup Fair. I did get a Romney-Ryan bumper sticker.
It came down to the last seconds. Seattle was on the 6 or 7 yd line with 30 seconds to go in the game. 4 straight pocket passes.
Too bad Seattle didn’t win yesterday. Now we face the Cowboys next week and Green Bay after that. Unless there’s something special that’s going to happen, Seattle’s looking at an oh-three start. So much for winning during pre-season.
It will certainly test them. OTOH, the Cowboys are notorious for starting out lackadaisical. With the young qb, it may be a year measured by his improvement, and perhaps the coaching for him.
I see Kansas St. wiped out Miami.
Utterly destroyed them!
One thing I’m taking away from today is that the QB at Syracuse is pretty good. He made the USC defense look average.
I didn’t get to see it, but, yes, it seems USC has some weaknesses they need to address before the end of the season.
So far, the only surprise I see is that Oregon St beat Wisconsin. Though ND almost lost to Purdue and Air Force gave Michigan all they wanted.
SF taking over in GB.
Yeh, that was a shocker. SF made a statement today.
They would have beat them by more but SF went into a prevent 3 man rush and it dawned on Aaron Rogers he had time to throw. And there was the punt return TD for GB. SF had been stifling them before that. GB only had 7 points up until those two things.
Yeh, I questioned the wisdom of doing that. If you’re doing something that works….. why change it? OTOH, it was good for my fantasy team.
Pittsburgh had 2 very long drives and built up a 13-7.And it was gone in seconds when Denver got the ball.
Yes, it’s now be interesting to see if Manning can respond to this last TD.
I guess we see how they responded.
I don’t think Peyton Manning has ever been on a team this good. Denver may be the best team in football now.
They looked real good. But, first game of the season. Were they that good or is it an off year for the Steelers?
Well, Pittsburgh isn’t what they used to be under Bill Cower. But still, I think Denver is for real. Their head coach already coached a team into the Super Bowl, Carolina vs NE—and I think he was robbed by NE cheating. They play Atlanta next week—and it will be on Monday Night! Outta be a good one!
Yes, that ought to be a good one. The Falcons looked good today, too!
I like Matt Ryan a lot. With good coaching I think he could be the best of all time. His accuracy is uncanny. But he does not have good coaching at Atlanta. I’ve never seen anyone else as accurate, except maybe Jeff George. But he’s not nuts like Jeff George.
I think Matt Ryan’s potential is not being lived up to with the team he’s at now.
He’s very good. And, yeh, he’s not nutty like George.
Ravens are clobbering the Bengals…… as expected.
Didn’t see it. Didn’t want to see the continual asides to Ray Lewis.
It got to be an embarrassing game to watch.
The Raiders seem to want to be the same old Raiders too. They’ve got the talent.
Shaun White arrested for drunken hotel room trashing
I pity the NFL team that wastes a draft pick on Denard Robinson. But then again if one does then stupid is as stupid does.
I’d give my eye tooth to watch a real football game again.
And how bout them Wolverines? Start the coach fired watch.
I think those baseball people should go on strike.
Well….They get just as tired as those football people do.
But they don’t get half-times.
Lol, very nice.
Kansas St beats “OK” Oklahoma! Oklahoma’s tackling was awful in that game. I hate seeing poor coaching! OK will fall out of the top 10 and K St will move into the top 10! They have a fairly tough schedule. If they can go undefeated they will be in National Championship contention.
You must like that.
I do like it, but as you said, it’s a tough schedule. It’s a huge victory for K St. We’ll see how far that will take them. Like you, I hate to watch poor coaching.
LSU and ALA in one conf and Ore and Stan in the other control their destiny. If one team from both conferences win out they will be in the National champions ship. If something happens where they all get 1 moss then next in line will be K St and Ohio St if they both win out (and possibly Fl St, but they don’t have a strong sched)
Will The Boys beat Tampa Bay today?
They’d better show something more than they showed last week.
Last week was evidence that Jason Garrett’s days at Dallas are numbered.
Well, the fact is, he’s had a lot of talent at his disposal, and he’s produce nothing but mediocrity. I think he is a fine assistant coach.
But he’s not the only coach to produce mediocrity with Tony Romo at qb. Romo, I think, is emotionally immature and can’t play good when it matters most.
I’ve always felt that Romo is better than what most give him credit for. However, I’ve nothing to point at that can show that.
Ok, time for the first string refs to get back in there.
That insane linebacker from Denver should be kicked out for 1 year!
He’ll probably get some suspension time.
I read this little diatribe yesterday by a Cowboy partisan (obviously). So were the Seahawks that good, or were the Cowboys that bad? The author says we’ll know Tuesday morning.
Well, the Cowboys won yesterday, but was it really a great showing? Not if you were listening to reviews made by the sports pundits.
I’m leaving to see the game in a few hours. I hope the Seahawks win. I won’t be surprised if they lose. If they lose against Green Bay, does that mean they aren’t very good? We shall see.
The officiating in the last play is what ESPN is going on and on about. But there were other calls that influenced the game too. Green Bay may have not gotten the only TD they had if not for a blown call. And there was clear interference on a GB db at another point that wasn’t called. It’s just one game. Let’s move on. And let’s get the real officials back ion before Thursday nights game.
There seemed to be major misses by the officials in the second half. We saw a blatant face-mask by a GB defender. It nearly pulled the Seahawk’s head off. The official was looking right at it–but no call. There was another GB block-in-the-back that was so obvious that the entire crowd was complaining–but still no call.
It’s hard to see clearly when you’re at the game (besides, I’m a Seahawk fan. Ahem, no bias there )
These officials aren’t ready for this level. They are a deer in the headlights sometimes.
On the very first run by Lynch I thought there was a pretty obvious face mask by a GB d-lineman. He turned Lynch’s head. But then I knew i was watching replacements refs.
I thought the rightful winner was Seattle. I don’t have a problem with Seattle winning.
I think once they get used to the speed of the game and the nuanced rules, they’ll be fine. I think it’s mostly because they’re intimidated.
Have you noticed that the whole game came down to the last “bad call?” What about the other game changing calls during the game. It looked like to me that the officials got a call at half-time, and were told to give the game to GB. Someone sitting behind me made the statement that the officials were for Seattle in the first half and for Green Bay in the second half.
So our fair-and-balanced MSM is only focusing on the last call. Poor GB, they should’ve won. They were cheated.
If you want to hear some classy comments, listen to Rogers’ statement after the game. It’s not the whining style of Flacco.
I’m thinking about writing a post on the NFL refs. The thing is, they’re equal in their calling. Some of them call the games very loose, others tight, some just get it wrong. But, they’re not showing a bias towards one team or the other. The fans have to be patient. And, I agree, had the Packers played better, they wouldn’t have been in the position they were.
Rogers was whining.
Looking at how tough K St. schedule is, if they go undefeated they would be in the national championship.
Yes, but that’s a huge “if”. OTOH, they’ve shown that they’re ready to play with the big boys. They can do it.
It is a big if. My hopes won’t get up too high.
National Championship picture:
Fl St is ranked high and will likely go undefeated. But they don’t have a strong schedule. They won’t get in because of it.
Oregon will only be tested by USC. They have a good shot.
Oddly enough South Carolina has a shot. But I just don’t think thy will make it undefeated through their schedule.
LSU and Ala still control their destiny.
Georgia has looked great so far but it’s going to get tough down the road. But it’s huge for them that they don’t play Ala or LSU!
Norte Dame is still alive at this point. But they have to beat Stan, Okla, and USC. I don’t think so.
And one that no one is talking about: Ohio St. They will likely go undefeated and then would need Oregon, K St. and one or two others to lose. And that could happen.
The other undefeateds aren’t worth the typing time.
Rankings (from last week)
Yeh, that’s sort of they way I see it shaping up. Ohio St. has a test with Mich. St today. Baylor and WV are at it right now with Baylor leading. oops WV just tied it. Georgia is playing Tenn today, so we’ll get to see if Tenn has anything. I’d be embarrassed if I were a LSU fan.
I don’t have any faith in WV.
I am an LSU fan. I don’t have a big problem playing Towson. It’s very good for Towson.
Ala will be playing Western Carolina. Oregon played Tennessee Tech. I don’t care if they all have one very weak opponent. Those little schools get a lot of money from it.
Western Carolina Catamounts….. what the heck is a Catamounts!?
Any of various medium-sized felines, such as the puma or lynx. [short for cat of the mountain]
That’s a cat a mount.
That’s a fish a bay.
That’s a bird a tree.
Well, overall, I think their schedule could be a bit tougher. Yes, it does help those small schools, they’ve also played Idaho and North Texas.
Thanks I was going to have to look up Catamounts.
I don’t get how Georgia ended up with such a light schedule.
I don’t get it either. Maybe this is random, but I would have expected tougher schedules from the conference.
I’ll be watching Oh St v Mi St
while reading and commenting here and at other sites. Maybe Steven will have a fun post to slap warmers around with.
What the heck happened in the Baylor v WV game!
Both defenses missed the bus.
You’re right, Tennessee had a chance to show something and they are showing something…… and Georgia is showing their rank is too high.
Do they no longer coach defense at college?
Don’t take this personally…..
but, the Texas Rangers played like Tony Romo today.

This might make you happy: it looks like LSU is going to lose. They were shutting out Florida. Then the left side LB went out with injury, and about 1 minute later a left side DB went out with injury. Almost every Florida play went to the right, where both had gone out from, and they got two quick td’s.
It worked for them. Good recognition, good execution. LSU is down and out.
I don’t know if it was execution or getting lucky those players got hurt. They may have been shot out otherwise.
Well, there is always a certain randomness in football, it’s the ability to recognize the areas of weakness and exploit them which makes it skill.
Well, ok. But they will end up being ranked higher than they deserve. It takes the air out of the balloon when both teams aren’t at full strength.
But I would not be surprised if LSU beats Ala and wins all their other games if they still have a shot at the National title.
Is K St. for real?
They are a very good team….. can they make it through the brutal Big 12? IDK. But, I’d definitely place them in the top 5 today. They work every facet of the game well.
Navy finally won a game–in OT against Air Force.
Stanford beat Arizona in OT.
LSU lost to Florida.
I wonder if the Huskies have a chance? We shall see.
I don’t know enough about either team, but from what I’ve seen of the Huskies, they should come ready to play. I’m just not sure that they have enough horses to go the distance with Oregon.
We (Huskies) might have a chance if Oregon pulls a Seahawk and don’t think they have to show up.
True, if the Oregon players do that, then Washington will take the game.
Georgia is getting beat like Obama.
No doubt. South Carolina in line for a shot?
How come you guys aren’t commenting on the college post I did today?
I didn’t see it James.sorry.
“Good college fun”… http://suyts.wordpress.com/2012/10/06/good-college-fun/
No worries, I was just wondering.
It’s settled: Ryan says “no question” Sanchez still Jets starter
He’ll ride them both down to the unemployment line.
Saw part of an interview with Tom Brady today. When asked about the crowd noise he said, “We’ll quiet them down with a few touchdowns.” As I said, I’m taking my earplugs this time–my ears are still ringing from the last Seahawk home game.
I’m tired of Tom Brady’s arrogance. He believes his press. And he believes NE earned those super Bowl wins. CamGate didn’t faze him.
I am pulling for Seattle.
Hopefully, the Seahawks will come to play. They’re good enough, they just have to believe.
After weeks of dry weather (very unlike Seattle), the rain started yesterday. It will be really wet Saturday and Sunday. Normally, Western Washington teams have an advantage in the rain. The Seahawks haven’t been playing in the rain this year, so the rain may cause them problems too. Let’s see how the Huskies do today against USC. They will be playing in the same stadium as the Patriot-Seahawk game tomorrow..
It was a good try by the Huskies. Too bad Price thought he had to do everything himself–including fumbling the ball away three times. All I can say is, “Raspberries.” I hope the Seahawk game tomorrow doesn’t end similarly.
There will be other days for the Huskies. I think there are some really good days ahead for them. Stay with the coach and they’ll produce. Time and patience for Husky fans is the key. They have a good program right now.
We had a formidable team under Don James, and they used trumped up charges to decimate the program. I don’t have much hope in the NCAA allowing the UW to have a good team. It’s just my biased view of the situation.
It’s interesting how an official of the Seahawk-Steeler Superbowl said (years later) that they made some wrong calls against Seattle. Bad calls have a way of changing the entire course of a game. Those officials looked biased to me, but I’m a partisan Seahawk fan.
It seems that the sports pundits aren’t fond of Seattle teams.
It’s funny how some teams get passes in the NCAA and others don’t.
What I know is playing with a chip on your shoulder is always helpful. You guys are getting there. Washington doesn’t have a good reputation as a football state. But, that”s changing. Personally, I think Zorn would be the way to go for the Seahawks. As far as the Huskies, ….. stay the course.
No. 3 South Carolina at No. 9 LSU
Are you ready for some football!
Show and tell time for both teams.
The winner will/should find themselves in the top 5 tomorrow morning. LSU will be back in the Nat. Champ race if they win. If S Car wins they will burst intro the Nat Champ door if/when Ala or Ore lose
Stanford and Notre Dame and Oklahoma/Texas are also good games scheduled!
I’ll pay attention to Stan Notr D, not too much for the other one, but I know that one affects K St, so it does have importance.
Like you said, Stanford and Notre Dame turned out to be one of the games of the day.
ND qb standing still in in the end zone. Ended up worse than a safety. If he had seen the LB blitz he could have dumped the ball off immediately to the area left open. Real basic stuff.
Stanford may have risked a blitz because game film may have shown that the ND qb doesn’t look for the blitz in that situation.
Whatever the case I would lose interest in the ND qb if I was thinking of drafting him.
WV’s crap defense is finally doing them in.
Like we both said James, we have no faith in WV.
I helped family move today. I didn’t get to watch any football today. But, I’m catching up quick!
I’ve been in and out today too with errands. But now I’m switching between LSU v SoC. The LSU qb has been a damper on the team all night. LSU should be ahead by about 10 by now.
switching with the baseball game.Yankees are LOSING! Yea!!!
My brother is still talking about the Cards. He’s a big fan.
As to football, I’m still catching up. LSU?
LSU v SoCar is on ESPN.
LSU has been relying on the run all night since the QB is playing to sub par.
I thought the Nationals were going to take it all this year. Now I’m going with the SF Giants. Lincecum has looked good in the post season and that might tip the scales for them to take it all this year.
LSU just got away with a late hit on the QB.
I’m not very involved in baseball anymore, but, I’m liking the Cardinals.
How are the Boys going to do today?
Monday Night Football–to paraphrase Eli Manning in that old commercial, “Well there’s Payton Manning, if you like that sort of thing.”
It was a fantastic comeback, and a horrible collapse for the Chargers. Peyton just added to his status and stature as one of the greatest.
Now they’re putting quarterbacks up on Mount Rushmore. Payton Manning is one of four great QBs, along with Elway, Favre, and Marino.
Thursday Night Football–uhh ohh, look who’s playing.
Not looking good for SF. Oh well, maybe next week. And NFL’s half time show sucks. Stick to football, NFL types.
Ok, I get proved wrong again. SF ahead. Who knew that they would suddenly rediscover slant.
Phooey!!!! Three dropped passes that could have made a difference.
Look at his fingers….. http://static.nfl.com/static/content/public/photo/2012/10/18/0ap1000000082124.jpg

Florida vs Georgia could be a trip up game for Florida this weekend.
K St is very much in the National Championship race.
Mon.Oct 9, day after another bad performance by Mark Sanchez…….
you guessed it: Rex Ryan said, once more, Mark Sanchez is the QB and he is “confident” in him.
Same same, he’s says the same thing every week. Being a Dolphins fan, I was kinda glad Ryan stuck with him, at least for that game.
Husky-Bear game was very strange. Washington wins ugly, but it’s still a win.
Here’s a picture for you Seahawk fans:
