    Harbaugh is Meyer’s bitch. I keep trying to explain to people why the rivalry is the greatest one there is. It’s be easier if UM could win one. Then a favored team with the #1 defense in the nation gives up the second most points in school history

    Was wondering why the fuck they canceled the Boise State vs Boston College bowl game until I saw this:

    “Boise State fans appeared to make up more than half of the 8,000 to 10,000 fans who attended the game.”

    Holy shit that’s sad.

    BSU fans are dedicated.

    ESPN runs that bowl game and won’t be issuing refunds. BSU doesn’t have the money to make it up to ticket holders so I don’t know whats going to be done. Maybe free admittance to other events

    According to same article:

    Boise State will provide refunds to fans who bought bowl tickets from the school, a spokesman said Wednesday evening (tickets were $75 or $100). Boise State had about 2,000 tickets out for the game, Athletic Director Curt Apsey said.

    Both these teams will be back next maybe even stronger. Lower tier programs like Ohio State are only playing for conference championships for the forseeable future.

    The loss was brutal, but the final score looked a lot worse than the game actually went.

    The stats were fairly equal (443 yards of offense, 31 mins time of possession for Bama versus 482 and 28 for Clemson), but Bama lost the game on 3rd downs and in the red zone. Bama had 3 drives inside the Clemson 10 yard line (2 drives to the Clemson 1 yard line) that ended with 0 points. A lot of that falls on a continual inability to rely on the kicking game, but there were playcalling and execution issues outside of that. Add the -2 in turnover margin and you're not going to win that game.

    Bama isn't going anywhere though. Saban is retooling his staff and bringing in one of his best recruiting classes. If anything, the loss has probably thrown gasoline on his competitive fire which is likely bad news for the rest of college football...
