Since we are not playing, what are all you guys watching or looking forward to watch today?
I figure this could be the in-game thread for all the games today.
It is so tough getting through a fall Saturday without PSU.
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
my day will consist of:
taking my daughter to a pumpkin patch after nap
mowing the lawn when said daughter take a nap
waiting for my wife to make up her mind about whether she wants to go see the Eagles tomorrow.
At 8pm, I'm all about the Yankees.

I'm watching the greatest rivalry in sports.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
That was a joke, right?

as much as it pains me to say it....OSU/Michigan is a much better rivalry than OU/UT.
army/navy tops them both.
Watchin iowa/ msu right now, and iowa does not look very good....but neither does msu....
Will hopefully watch stanford win later....sick of hearing about nd already

Greatest rivalry in sports. The atmosphere that goes along with the State Fair and Cotton Bowl, the unmatched hatred of the two fanbases and rosters towards each other. Great rivalry in sports.
EDIT: The quality of football is typically excellent too. For multiple years earlier in 2000s, winner of the OU-Texas game went on to the mNC game. What other rivalry can claim that?

No..... Just no.
While I agree, I have been to both games and think the gameday atmosphere is much better at the Red River Rivalry, being at the neutral site. The clear distinction between the OU and UT colors in the stands is awesome. One of the coolest experiences I have been a part of.
But yes, as far as the rivalry, UM OSU is bigger and filled with 100 times the hate for each other.
Few rivalries better than OU/Texas:
I'm watching Farmageddon.
Also, NW 14, Minnesota 3. Hope the weather is crappy, too. Enjoy, Neiko.
Georgia Florida? Really? That rivalry hasn't been relevant since since the 1990s.
Atmosphere is the best, quality of football is excellent (except for that beat down last year), and we hate each other.
Au-Bama is at its peak, but as a whole it's not as good as OSU-UM, much less OU-Texas.
What channel? Im trying to watch that.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
The atmosphere at Georgia/Florida might be the best in the country. "The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party"
I wouldnt really know if i is, but many people say it is.

I will be flipping between games like a monkey on crack.
Looking forward to the Western Illinois Leathernecks at South Dakota St. jackrabiits
Ugh nevermind. ESPN2... joey galloway UGH. hate this clown.
yeah...I'm sure you don't have any Texas bias or anything. Every rivalry has fanbases that hate each other so using that as a talking point for UT/OU is pointless (doesn't get any more heated than OSU/UM either). Some thoughts...
Texas leads all-time series 59-42-5. Michigan leads all time series 58-43-6. Let's call that a wash.
I would say 80's/90's OSU - Michigan was much better. 2000's OU/Texas has been much better. Regardless....they are both great great college football rivalries
That is your opinion. Does anyone care about OSU v. Michigan outside Big 10 country? Does anyone care about Auburn v. Alabama outside Alabama? Rivalries are nothing more than regional things anymore - except Army v. Navy.
It's a good rivalry (I live in Jax where it is played every year). I wouldn't say that it is any better than others. Everyone has a rivalry game they think is best so it's a personal thing.
The Texas State Fair, Orange and Crimson all day long, the split stands, the Cotton Bowl.
All much better than a cocktail party in Jacksonville.
You can drink anywhere. Only one weekend a year can you enjoy the State Fair, great football with two of the best programs in the history of the game, and good old fashioned hatred.
Realistically, pretty much all of these rivalries mean nothing to people who aren't fans of the teams when one or more of the teams are bad. Does Auburn/Alabama mean anything this year with Auburn sucking?
well....uhh yeah. Rivalries have always been regional because usually the proximities of the fanbases to each other = more mixing between fanbases and states = more hatred.
so Michigan State's offense is just stagnant. I like LeVeon Bell alot but the rest of that team is just not impressive at all. To beat them you could just stack 8 guys in the box especially with Dion Sims out
Oklahoma bias actually.
Since 1945 OU has the lead. From 1943 it's completely even.
I wasn't around in the 80s so I guess I wouldn't know for back then.
