    The winston fumble is getting all sorts of comic treatment on the Internet. It is really one of the funniest bloopers I have seen. Winston looks really awkward, uncoordinated And just plain goofy.

    45 isn't old either for an announcer. Another 15-20 years of polluting the airwaves and eventually becoming an elder statesman. Hopefully he calls someone a monkey or they found out he once posted on CF and gets whitelisted out of his job.

    Many Americans look younger than people at the same age a couple of generations ago. Look at trading cards of professional football and baseball players from the 1960s and earlier -- the typical 25 year old looks like someone who's 35 or 40 today; 35 and 40 year olds then could pass for 50+ today. Soft living and soft and infantile ways of thinking have made a lot of people who look younger on the outside but are empty on the inside.

    Concerning Mariota's ethnicity. His mother Alana Deppe Mariota looks to be 100% white, and his dad is Samoan I believe. One site said he was of German and Samoan ancestry. I at first thought he was of Portugese ancestry as he looks similar to a co-worker of mine Portugese background.

    The results yesterday are a great example of why a college football playoff is inherently a good thing. Without it, the overrated black dominated teams will automatically get in the National Championship game due to the SEC overrated factor. With the playoff system there is at least a chance for whiter, non-SEC teams to make it. Its no coincidence that the first non-SEC championship game for several years is now happening.

    "Herbstreit may not look it but he's 45 years old, not exactly young anymore."

    As someone who is 45, thank you for the reminder ... oh well, at least I didn't waste my youth!

    In just my small amount of viewing various games yesterday, all featuring the new, revolutionary quotabacks, I would have to say that they all suck. When compared to a classic white thrower. All of them are products of a spread/option that feature wide-open running lanes and defenses running cover twos, allowing for giant windows in the coverage to make throws.

    When in a spread "passing" play, they all take the shotgun snap and set up 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage and just stand there. In the NFL, these same quotabacks do the same thing, but in the NFL the DE's will make you step up in the pocket, which they don't know how to do. These quotabacks have nearly zero pocket awareness. Watch the Gremlin, Geno Smiff, EJ Manuel, etc. That's what they try to do. Set up, stand there, get crushed when the two DEs converge 10 yards upfield.

    It might be time for Ferentz to find some new coordinators.

    I took a few years off from watching College Football in '97 after college. I resumed regular viewing in 2000. This has undoubtedly been the worst season since I began watching again.
    I'm not sure how enthusiastic I am about returning for 2015. I've already quit the NFL.
    Without college football I could cancel my cable tv, save a lot of money.

    Football Dad is correct, the quotaback craze is a football joke. Aaron Rogers is who he is because he can move in the pocket, the quotabacks throw the ball or take offrunning, even looks like the best of the lot Mariota is the same. If you ask me the QB from Baylor is the best I've seen this year

    Kansas State is terrible at containing the QB.

    Kstate may pull the comeback yet. They were down 31 to 6 and it is now 34-28 with around 5 minutes left. Sexton has 9 catches for 85 yards. He had over 1000 yards receiving this year. This is a fun team to watch.

    Yep. That's a normal passing line for the modern-day revolutionary QB. Enough to warrant a first round draft choice!

    As Leonardfan constantly notes, not ONE of the current over-hyped quotabacks is any good. Watching Washington/OK State now, so why is the really bad quotaback starting for Washington? No white QB's in the state that are better?

    Disappointing showing by Kansas st. but it is laughable to anyone who thinks Hundley is going to be a good NFL QB. His last two games he has really **** the bed as a passer displaying huge deficiencies in his abilities as a quarterback.

    At least Oklahoma St. beat a quotaback lead monrgrol infested Washington team with a very promising freshman QB leading the way.
