    Darnold's luck finally runs out

    Late night Pac 12 craziness strikes again.

    Sam Darnold has arm strength, accuracy, athleticism/mobility, pocket presence,etc but he disappears too often. He was terrible against a mediocre Wazzu defense until the one late drive.

    he didn't have a good game but USC was missing 3 o-linemen. i like darnold a lot but he's a bit overrated when you consider how much the media hypes him up.

    falk was impressive tonight after a slow start airmailing a lot of throws. he goes through his progressions, shows patience, and has great IQ. he's going to need to react faster though because NFL defenses are so much faster than college defenses and it's one of the biggest flaws.

    Sad news in the world of college football. Along with guys like Hal Mumme, Tiller was one of the founding fathers of the modern passing game. It speaks to how good he was at mentoring quarterbacks that he produced Drew Brees and Kyle Orton essentially back-to-back at what had been little more than a football outpost at Purdue prior to his arrival.

    Lol yeah he really stood tall in the pocket vs that fierce Murray State D.

    He's not an NFL QB. Better start working out his route running now.

    Considering their next game isn't for 2 weeks, now might be the time for UT to show Butch Jones the door.

    You are looking live at the SEC dumpster fire!

    Win or lose, Troy's Neal Brown made himself some money tonight.

    He was already probably going to be a trendy name, but I think his team playing so well tonight on the road against LSU will really help his cause. At the end of the season, we may look back and realize that this was a very mediocre LSU team, but university ADs aren't immune to emotional and/or snap judgments based on small sample sizes, and playing this well on the road against a team like LSU on national TV (in a week where there aren't a ton of marquee games to distract the viewing public) is the type of thing that will make an AD stand up and take notice.

    Coach O is one of the worst sports hires of the last few decades

    Dan Wolken (at least I think it was him) tweeted earlier that this UGA loss was Butch Jones's version of the 59-0 loss to Clemson that Al Golden's Miami team suffered a couple of years ago. In all likelihood, Jones, like Golden in 2015, was going to be looking for work in the offseason regardless, but an embarrassing blowout loss in a game against a marquee opponent essentially sealed their respective fates.

    Tennessee is an interesting program to me. Because they won a national title in the late-90s and because Peyton Manning ended up being Peyton Manning, UT is still put on this pedestal by many as a blue blood program, but I think you could make an argument that they pretty much are what they have been of late. They should never be as bad as they were under Dooley, but that was a bad hire. But they've had talent under Kiffin (for the 15 minutes or so he was in Knoxville) and Butch Jones. Maybe they're just the type of program that should consistently win 8-9 games, with a window coming open a couple of times per decade for the team to contend for the SEC title.

    For best results, LSU should fire head coach Ed Orgeron on the tarmac and replace him with interim head coach Ed Orgeron

    The rest of SEC celebrated, especially Alabama, when Orgeron was hired. It was such an obviously bad idea.

    Don't know who LSU's AD is but he should be fired for being so stupid.
