Did they get a penalty for that helmet-to-helmet hit?

Total yards early in q3: 439 to 34.  Holy crap.

Arrogance met excellence, and few tears were shed.

I used to get this butthurt over CFB losses, but it's just not worth it, bros(ephines).  I can come away from today happy knowing that we got to witness (and nearly benefitted massively from) a coaching faux pas for the ages (Drink's failure to get his FG squad on the field the first time).  He is one lucky dude.

Surely we can all agree that playing an injured 9th-year senior QB and a true freshman QB on the road are both bad options.  I put the blame squarely at Jake Rubley's feet.

ITT: Lots of people overreacting to a mildly bad loss (about a touchdown worse than the spread) that was due in no small part to our QB (apparently) getting injured.

You won't find me arguing, but if you look up the award there are like 24 recipients.

Didn't believe this until I googled "nacda athletic director" and lol.
Sounds like a Who's Who in Athletic Directing situation.

Well...if there *is* a legitimate and elite award for the best AD, they should give it to Gene and maybe consider renaming it after him and engraving his likeness on it.

I had no issue with Tang's comments or with Cal's either, really (though I understand why calling Nowell a "little kid" rubbed ppl the wrong way)  Dowling can certainly say whatever he wants, and I'm sure the players liked him standing up for them, however silly leaping on Twitter might (or might not) have been.  That's the end of my commentary.  Now let's get back to enjoying the W.   :cheers:

He referred to all the players as kids, didn't he?  I thought it was a subtle dig until then.  Whatever.  I think Cal just doesn't care at this point.  He's got nothing left to prove and money coming out of his ears.  Bad look for Dowling to engage in a petty Twitter monologue, IMO.  Especially after Tang kind of eschewed decorum by brushing aside UK's tradition and saying he has better dudes.

Also...lame to judge anyone (esp a HOF coach) by a pissy tourney-exit presser.  WGAF?  Maybe his heart was in the right place, but just enjoy the W, amigo...damn.

You can post tweets here TPT
Can't see Tang's retweet annotation, but here it is:

The chant is juvenile and makes our student section look boorish and dumb (and inconsiderate of innocent youngsters in attendance), but Tang retweeted a video clip of it.  Maybe it doesn't bother him as much as he has implied.  Whatever.  Replace it with something more clever and/or classy - problem solved.  I don't get the attachment to this "tradition" - particularly if our coveted new coach hates it.

It was bold of the cats to embarrass Gus Fring on his home turf like that.  Jerome Tang: "I am the one who knocks!"

He seems to be really good at picking/hiring coaches.

So Michigan snapped the ball into the QB's legs on the last offensive play, and Ohio State botched an attempted game-winning kick?  I'll have a spring in my step tomorrow, even if it means an SEC team advanced to the final.

Go, frogs!  I want only the best opponent for the proxycats anyway.

Yeah, but Bama dominated ND in the NCG.  Anyway...that 2012 loss certainly hurt a lot more but felt similar in terms of running into a talented team perfectly suited to ruin our day.  Amazingly, that Baylor team finished 4-5 in the Big 12.  They played out of their minds.

This was a lot like watching the 2012 cats struggle mightily in their next-to-last conference game gainst an insanely talented/athletic Baylor squad.  Also...much like we could hang with 2 or 3 of the CFP set this year, we could have hung with (or perhaps dominated) Manti Teo and Notre Dame in 2012's NCG.

They're obviously stacked with huge, NFL-tier players, Young has played totally lights out since their first 2 drives, and Howard is really struggling.  Their ability to get into the backfield nearly every time they blitz is just debilitating.  What a sad showing...ugh.  It wouldn't have been so disappointing without that encouraging start.

It could have been a lot worse than 45-20, but total yards were 496 to 401.  How?!

The Big 12 is now 1-6 in bowls.  Yikes.

Every time I see this thread title I think it's about CK7 and that he's left for the head-coaching job at Alabama.

CK7 is Optimus Prime.
Deion is Prime Time.
I believe this is a pre-emptive strike by Deion to prevent CK7 from becoming *the* Coach Prime.

Am I crazy for considering making a pit stop (already traveling from FL to WA) with a 6yo in tow for this game and the festivities?  Thinking about spending one night there, I guess - maybe the 30th.

How did Kevin Sumlin's recruiting class rankings compare?

What an amazing debut!  I admit that I'm surprised to see Sky doing so much damage in the NFL.  He is composed and efficient in his movements and appears to be confident as hell.  Good for him.  I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up starting multiple games this year.

Heā€™s either the scary smart basketball version or the best chance the basketcats have had at a national title with a coach in my lifetime.

The only thing making it hard for me to care about basketball at this point is the (apparent) complete lack of consequences for programs that have been caught cheating.

45-21 loss to Fresno State in 2nd game of 2004 ended Sproles' Heisman hopes (?) and kinda crushed my soul.

Big fan of the TCU uniforms.

The KC Star editorial board wrote that De Sousa should be suspended for the entire year.  Their logic?  It was behavior unworthy of such a classy basketball program (which, BY THE WAY, just found a way to keep De Sousa on scholarship despite his totally selfish secret plan with Adidas to exchange cash in exchange for his agreeing to attend KU, the victim in all this).

I can't make this crap up.  Same "editorial" also chastised KSU for stealing the ball by calling it as bush league as it gets.  It's pretty sad/astounding that KU hoops, clearly one of the dirtiest in the history of the sport, is still considered unimpeachable in those parts.  They're in complete denial.  Lulz.
