Scroller on the Cactus Bowl said Josh Rosen is the overall #1 on the draft board. Really??

I thought it was interesting when the DB picked off the pass in the 1Q, he ran the ball to the sidelines and handed it to Rosen.

Personally after watching Rosen, Darnold, Allen, etc. I think he's the best QB. Also don't sleep on Mayfield who I think could be the second best available.

Mayfield wins which can’t be measured but who knows. No one saw Brady becoming the GOAT.
Rosen has the tools. The UCLA backup is looking good.

K-State is not looking good. Snyder wants his son, special teams coach, to take over as HC but no one else is hip to that so he keeps staying on. I bet he retires right before the season like Dean Smith so they have little choice.

Will be interesting to see if Kelly can match his Oregon success at UCLA, which has got to be easier  to recruit to location wise than Eugene right?

Bowl attendance seems to down everywhere. But we can’t expand the playoff  :suicide:


Wow - Snyder still awake after 9pm! Oh wait, not on central time for him.

Maybe I’ve just seen his bad games. Haven’t been overly impressed the games I’ve seen.

Apparently you didn’t watch Texas Tech versus South Florida or army versus San Diego State or  Fresno State versus Houston

If Snyder puts the white QB back in they need to just retire him now.

I had UCLA +.5 for the first quarter. KSU takes it 68 yards for the last play of the quarter. BMFBO.

UCLA needs to not hand the ball off again. Their RBs are terrible.

UCLAs receivers are NOT helping their QB. Four drops that should have been big gains tonight.

I picked K State in this game cause UCLA losted they QB and corch.

This is going to be a great 4 years and possibly 8.  The amount of butthurt from the left is already at glorious levels.

Looks like the mildcats came back to beat the Bruins. I think it was 7 to 17 when I turned it off.


Twitter folk implying that Bert could be in play for the K-State job if Synder decides to walk out a Cactus champion. I'm sure the fans of K-State will love that. I would be down for watching Bert take on Ryan Gosling every year.

Ahhhh. My bad. I thought you were talking about the bowl games.


Anyone watching FSU and Southern Miss? Jesus this is sloppy. SMU has been offsides four times and FSU has three personal fouls halfway through the first quarter.

That had to be an autocorrect. They now have five offsides penalties.

I've never heard of Walk-On's sports bars before. So I guess their sponsorship of this game at least accomplishes some name recognition. Anybody ever been to one?

Nevermind. I googled it. They have about 13 locations in Louisiana and 3 in Texas.  Lots more coming, including Little Rock and Fayetteville .  They are franchising very aggressively.

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fellow says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace - and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.

Opened one where I live last year.  The food is above average, much better than most "sports bars",  but the douchebag titer is high so we rarely eat there.

Listening to Mack Brown and Booger call this Prisonstripe Bowl is just scintillating.  I haven't ever heard them call a game together.  Sounds odd.

By scintillating do you mean Waltonish?

this was a result of firing an ad, and letting the fat cats chase a pipe dream that was a coach who was never coming to arkansas. then when that played out, to let the richest guy in the room make the decision.

The slipping is becoming quite comical.  I hope the team's enjoyed their sightseeing tour of NYC.
