12.Nov.2012 General Discussion
It sounds like QB musical chairs will continue for another week. Hearing Mannion will start vs Cal. Hey, maybe we will see Richie Harrington before all is said and done. Does Riley have an eligibility left? Maybe he can Pete Rose us and call his own number.
Those who noted Cal is no longer an easy win are spot on. Should be a win based on match ups, but you gotta think this team is shot. The win cap theory is at stake (given that Nicholls State is back on the schedule. What a championship week game that will be!). I think there's a line piling up to tell me how wrong I am if Riley notches that 9th win vs the mighty Colonels. And for the mathematically challenged, a win cap of 8 means he has to win 9 (some don't seem to grasp that; ala how there are 11 numbers between 0 and 10).
Hoops appears to be exactly what I thought (same as last year, only a little worse defensively). I'm basing that off the stats and comments I read here, though, as I didn't actually watch the games. Seems Burton is still throwing head-lopping passes. I'd rather have a guy who doesn't make the highlight reel pass, and doesn't make the mistakes that come with those passes.
Like Jimi Hendrix sang, Manic Depression is a frustrating mess. He could have easily substituted "OSU athletics".
