Feelgood moment after the game for a very emotional GT alum Brent Key, glad he got to experience that if nothing else.

Not true.

Mac McWhorter was 1-0 (interim for the bowl upset of Stanford in 2001, as mentioned during the broadcast tonight)

Welp, my butt hurts after the visit to the woodshed.

Hogs will drop out of the Top-25 next week. I know they have the talent to end back in the Top-25 by end of season. Just not sure their head is on right with 3 bad games in a row. In prior years, there would be a helpless spiral down. Hoping that's not the case this year.

Kansas feels like a TCY dynasty.

2020 - Your first year and you don 't even bother setting lineups or playcalling (aside from shirting the 1-2 useful guys). Focus entirely on recruiting.

2021 - You only have one class of guys in and give the shirt to some of them, but there's some smidgen of talent now. You start gameplanning, almost pull off a major upset and win an exciting OT game late in the year.

2022 - This is when the team starts to perform. Your redshirt guys are now ready, with a year of training. You get off to a great start, but will probably come back to earth in conference play.

If this pattern holds, then Kansas should be ready to win a Natty in 2025 or 2026.

What kind of odds could you have gotten preseason that Texas-Oklahoma would be a match up of two unranked teams, while TCU-Kansas would be a ranked matchup of undefeated teams?

Others beat me to it, but on Chryst: he's one of the coaches in the BIG that I respected, they had one of those runs for a few years where it looked like they might be about to turn the corner and become the top challenger to Ohio State. But obviously what's happening these days is not good for the program.

Same. Maybe there are some behind the scenes things we don't know about, but he's been incredibly successful for Wisconsin. Makes a bowl every year, including 2 BCS bowls in 7 years. Was one game away from being in the playoffs in 2017.

I get this would have bee another ho-hum year for them and firing him after season. But I wonder what are realistic expectations at Wisconsin. Seems like being in the 2nd tier of the Big 10, making a bowl every year, and flirting with some big ones every so often is a realistic ceiling for Wisconsin.

Again, maybe there is more to it. But I feel like schools like Wisconsin are much more likely to fall like Nebraska did than jump to that Ohio State level they seem to think they can reach.

Chryst had six bowl wins and a one-point Rose Bowl loss in seven seasons, and a 67-26 overall record. This surprises me. Unless Leonhard is more than an interim, it'll make recruiting difficult.

If they know Leonhard is the guy and they did this because they thought he'd go to Nebraska or someplace else if they didn't act, then they should have made it official for continuity's sake, because the new transfer windows mean you've got to move earlier and uncertainty affects your current commits.

But I look at the job Chryst has done and wonder why they would get rid of a long-time Wisconsin guy (played there, coached there for many years before becoming head coach) over the worst one-month stretch of his career.

4th and 10, with like 30 seconds left. Ball around midfield. He goes for it, QB gets sacked. Tenn is able to get in FG range to extend the lead.

How dominant has Tennessee been at LSU?

You can hear the "Bruuuuuu" (for McCoy) crowd noise on every catch he makes.

LSU fans were noticeably absent after halftime

Pretend f'n coach from a pretend f'n conference, and STILL Harsin manages to be a bigger clown than I thought possible.

Holy Hell, if they don't fire him by halftime somebody may have to shoot the clueless p.o.s.

Good news for recruiting? If you want to start as a true Freshman at DB, then Miami is probably one of the best places to go.

We'll have to agree to disagree on that one.

The AD that hired the fucking guy would be acceptable collateral damage at this point ... and I don't even particularly give a shit about Auburn.

Not like they can throw it now that Cinderella has lost her slipper.

Almost everything anyone needs to know about this game's first half is that Ashford -- who looks more like a HS freshman than a college freshman -- was the game's leading passer AND leading rusher.

Emeka is having a huge year. Good to see. I briefly coached him in coach pitch and again in 10u baseball.

He played at a really small school here with less than 1k students. Great kid that I've never heard a bad thing about.

Ugh, almost a miracle for the Canes on the onside kick, but the player stepped out of bounds and didn't re-establish before touching the ball.
