IU certainly had their chances but again they find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Also another sloppy game, there was a running tally of dropped passes by Fox during the telecast.

By the way, Fox doing heavy promotion that they are getting the B1G next fall and they even had a little ESPN like conference bias during the telecast.

Yeah that Utah-IU game was horribly played. IU's quarterback is terrible. Should have played Diamont more; at least he can run

Another sign of just how bad the Pac-12 is.

Some really close and interesting, though poorly played, games so far. That BC/Maryland game was fun in how each of the teams kept trying to give it away.

South Carolina down 22-7 to USF. If they fall the SEC will be 1-3, with its lone win a 17-16 victory over the mighty Miami Redhawks. Too bad 7-loss Miami couldn't finish that one off

Worst call I've seen in a long time in the VaTech/Arkansas game.

Basically, muffed punt return by VaTech. Arkansas tried to jump on the ball and missed. As the VaTech player picked up the ball, the whistle was blown inadvertently. There was a holding penalty called on VaTech during the return.

Originally ball was ruled a recovery by Arkansas (not sure what the officials saw) and the penalty was declined. Went to review and they decided that since the ball was not controlled during the inadvertent whistle, the penalty would be enforced from the prior spot giving Arkansas a first down.

If that is the correct rule, it's a TERRIBLE rule. If it's the wrong call, these officials should be docked their pay for taking that long to come to the wrong conclusion. (took about 8 minutes)

Agreed. I don't see how you can screw up that badly with replay. Making things worse, it took the officiating crew 15 minutes of stopped play to make a call.

Some of the Gifs featuring Bret Bielema I saw on Twitter last night were hilarious, the guy just has this weird look to him that takes these things up a notch.

Harbough out-intellectualizing himself. 1st and goal and inches and f-nut calls a draw/read and two passes, forgetting he ought to have someone block. Now he has a line knows they're not trusted.

He won't be a great Pro, but he was a great college player. His Int total sucked bc he was playing just about every position in the back 7 of that Defense.

Anyone else think Dalvin Cook will be a better pro than Fournette?

Funny but after watching most of this years bowl games I think Mcaffrey & Fournette made an excellent decision. I'm amazed at how sloppy these teams are playing. It seems like half the players on the field aren't paying attention! The mental & physical lapses have been excruciating to watch. Guys missing assignments, blocks & tackles all over the field. Committing dumb penalties, dropping easy passes all within the framework of some very sketchy coaching decisions.

Speaking of mental melt downs it looks like Michigan is back in the game with a pick six!

How do you let a guy run 71 yards on 3rd & 21 off a simple counter play? My goodness, given the field position and how the game was going it was almost a certainty that they were going to give the ball to Cook to try get a quick 10 yards and better field position for the punt. How they weren't keying on Cook is beyond me.

Just another example of the sloppy play & coaching we've been seeing in these bowl games. I can't wait for tomorrow and games that actually mean something.

Wow, Michigan takes the lead! It's fun rooting for the Wolverines. Two point conversion is good!

Great game. Very entertaining & thrilling to watch. At the same time the game was crap football. Mistakes, mistakes and more mistakes. I think the folks saying that the playoff renders these games even less relevant than they used to be are correct.

It's time for a 16 team playoff.

It was a good thing Harbaugh saved all three timeouts, they were much more useful with 38 seconds left in the game rather than Michigan getting the ball back with well over a minute left in the game and only needing a field goal.

Oh I don't really care, I have just seen some God awful clock management this bowl season. Miami Ohio, Indiana and now Michigan. Les Miles would be proud. I honestly don't understand these coaches but I guess that's why they get paid the big bucks.

Nebraska's coaches were equally horrible, they had their D Backs playing 10-15 yards off the Tennessee receivers the entire game, allowing underneath passes or QB scrambles to go for 8-12 yard chunks all night.

A little concerned that both Nebraska and UM struggled today with a faster more athletic 4 man front.

I guess that pretty much solidifies that Michigan had no business in the playoff, the committee got that one right. Once Penn St gets beat, hopefully that shuts everyone up about OSU representing the B1G

What happens if Penn State wins the Rose Bowl and OSU gets beaten by Clemson? Should the committee have taken the Conference champ?

Absolutely PBoy. He's much more similar to Zeke. You need speed in the NFL.
