Nebraska sucked. Offensive line couldn't block worth a shit, and the defense forgot how to tackle. I swear I've seen better tackling on black friday.
man...i hate to say it...but maybe teh big 10 really is that terrible this year.
outside of OSU (potentially, they have played cupcake 1 and 2) and Michigan State...everyone else is just...wow.

Needless to say, the nation doesn't exactly tremble in our presence.

Alabama is going to eat Arkansas alive this weekend. Expect a massacre.
Except they didn't, and they got punched in the mouth in their own house by a team from a school that few people outside of Louisiana have heard of. So don't try to take away from or demean their victory. They played harder and better than Arkansas, with a fraction of the funding and budget that Arkansas has.

Shocked to see Arkansas lost today. After Wisconsin's performance last week that was surprising, but a loss to UL Monroe elicited a What the fuck out loud from me during Sportscenter. That's like Michigan's App St loss bad. Grats to Savannah St for only losing by 55 or so yesterday. Sure the game last two quarters and around 6 minutes thanks to weather, but they could be confused with a real football team if you saw 55-0 and missed the early ending part.

The problem with Arkansas coaching wise, is that the AD let the players dictate to him about who he should hire. It was a bad move, especially with a program as large as Arkansas, and in the conference we are in. You don't go out and hire a second rate coach and expect a National Championship. While I'm on that topic, anyone with a brain that thought Arkansas was gonna be that good this year was smoking something. They had like 3 decent players coming back, the rest were fairly young. Tyler Wilson just proved why its a bad idea to turn the money down, odds are he will now have a heck of a time even getting drafted in the second round.
Finally ULM isn't that bad, that QB gave us trouble last year, and we had a much better team a year ago. They play a very weird defensive scheme ( 3-5-3 I think it is) and it throws lots of teams off. They are one of those teams you can't overlook, because they are just good enough to beat you if you do.
Yeah the Alabama game is going to be ugly, but I thought it would be going into the season tbh. All these Hog fans that were talking about a National Championship were just fooling themselves. Even on paper this team wasn't that good.
Past that, the other big difference is Nick Saban didn't get fired at the start of the summer and had to be replaced going into the season. Saban had a chance to work with his guys and develop them more, I'm pretty sure our guys didn't do that at all this summer with everything going on. While most of the coaching staff was kept in place, the game last night showed just how important Bobby was to the whole thing. Dude ran everything on the offensive side, and put his foot in peoples rears when the defense stunk.
Also, John L. Smith showed just what kind of a coach he is when he's not even man enough to lose the game and then go and shake hands afterwards. One thing is for sure, he definitely has no reason to try to get the job after this season, they are already trying to run him out of Fayeteville
Apply blizzards model to any other subscription service,you'd be outraged:
Netflix adds no new movies for a year, you click a new movie, there's a $5 fee.
You're in an accident, click your onstar button, but there's an addition $20 fee for them to help.
You turn on your tv only to find all you get are the infomercial channels. Every other show is pay per view.
See how dumb that model is?
I think the ULM loss is worse. We are talking about a FBS team that doesn't deserve to be in the FBS. ULM has gotten murdered by every single decent team they have played for year. Absolutely obliterated in most cases. App St was the best team in D1AA. They could beat a good half of the teams in FBS football fairly handily. Neither loss is forgivable, but the ULM one is ever so slightly more pathetic than the Michigan loss to the best team in D1AA.
