Saturday College Football Open Thread

November 10, 2012; Dallas, TX, USA; Kansas State Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein (7) leads his team off the field before the game against the TCU Horned Frogs at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Kansas State won beating TCU 23-10. Mandatory Credit: Jim Cowsert-US PRESSWIRE

As a Kansas City Chiefs fan, watching football on Sundays has been a little stressful and depressing this season. I’ve found that I like watching college football a lot lately because I can just sit back and enjoy it. As an Emporia State graduate I don’t have a team that I follow so I can just sit back and watch the best game that’s on without a care in the world. It’s kind of like the calm before the storm that is the Chiefs game on Sunday.

Anyway, feel free to use this post as an open thread to talk college football. Have a favorite team? Want to weigh in on the possible National Championship match ups? How about the Heisman?

I’m going to try and watch some of Oregon’s game and see if I can envision the Chiefs running Chip Kelly’s offense.

If you’re watching anybody you think the Chiefs should think about drafting let us know. Anything to get our minds off 1-8, right?

Enjoy a nice day of college football Addicts!

    Umm. Im watching usc vs. Ucla . I am not impressed with Matt Barkley so far. Its like watching cassel dink and dunk all over the field. But tyen again it is only the first quarter.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

      ya barkley is from usc and usc qbs = bad nfl qbs

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    im liking florida state’s senior qb ej manuel. hes lookin good for them

  • Lyle Graversen

    Anyone else watching Mike Glennon vs Clemson? The guy looks pretty legit to me.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

      im watchin it. hes doin good

    • Lyle Graversen

      Now, granted they are down 41-24, but Glennon already has 328 yards and 3 TDs in the first half.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    matt barkley is ugly today. it seems usc is playing without a will now

    • Lyle Graversen

      Yeah, flipping back and forth between Barkley and Glennon, Glennon looks WAY better today. Just one game and Barkley is playing in slop, but still.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

        i wonder how geno smith will play tonite. hes only thrown 3 pix this yr and has a 71 comp%, and 31 tds

        • Lyle Graversen

          I’m irritated that the 3 games I wanted to watch most today are all on tonight. I want to watch Chip Kelley’s offense, Geno Smith against the Sooners, and K-State against Baylor.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

            ya im probably just gonna watch mizzou vs syracuse just cuz mizzou is my team, but ill keep an eye on geno and oregon

  • Lyle Graversen

    Matt Barkley not going quietly just yet. If he can find a way to gut this out despite some poor plays and being down big early on, that would show me something.

  • Lyle Graversen

    Barkley just got blind sided HARD and got his bell rung. Then USC gets FG blocked. USC has been a major let down this season.

    In other news, Glennon up to 395 yards and 4 TDs.

    • Lyle Graversen

      As good as Glennon looks, their defense is getting OBLITERATED by Clemson.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    compare the stats- (all stats prior to this week)
    Matt Barkley, USC- 33 TD, 13 INT, 64.8 COMP% 160.0 QB RAT

    Geno Smith, WVU- 31 TD, 3 INT, 71.3 COMP%, 159.2 QB RAT

    E.J. Manuel, FSU- 19 TD, 5 INT, 68.4 COMP%, 169.3 QB RAT

    Aaron Murray, UG- 24 TD, 7 INT, 65.8 COMP%, 170.7 QB RAT

    Tyler Wilson, UAR- 18 TD, 10 INT, 60.9 COMP%, 146.8 QB RAT

    Landry Jones, OU- 18 TD, 7 INT, 65.5 COMP%, 144.2 QB RAT

    • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

      All these QBs are Senior 1st Round prospects. With the statistics, I’d rank them like this-
      1. Geno Smith, WVU
      2. Aaron Murray, UG
      3. E.J. Manuel, FSU
      4. Matt Barkley, USC
      5. Landry Jones, OU
      6. Tyler Wilson, UAR

      • Lyle Graversen

        I don’t think I can rank them yet. My opinion changes every day. Glennon would be on my list though, Landry Jones would not.

        • Chief Hokie

          Yes. Glennon. Yes. Dude has a cannon. He’s a bit raw but his potential is ridiculous. I’m thinking 3rd Rd if we can get him

  • Lyle Graversen

    Seriously, if you like offense turn on the NC State vs Clemson game. It’s 62-45 and there are still 14 minutes left. It’s turning into West Virginia vs Baylor.

    Glennon up to 438 and 5 TDs.

  • vbchief

    Up next…geno vs. Landry. This should be a good game

    • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

      wat channel

    • Lyle Graversen

      Geno needs a great game against a good team. Dropping 40 points and beating Oklahoma would get his draft status back on track.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    mizzou up 7-0

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    mizzou up 14-3.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    Geno Smith just threw his 4th INT of the season

    • Lyle Graversen

      And he threw one that should have been picked off like 2 plays before that. Not a great start.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    Mizzou up 17-10 at the half.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    Landry Jones has thrown for 240 yards and 2 TDs.

    • Lyle Graversen

      WV’s defense is pretty terrible.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

        ya thats very true. the only way west virginia wins is if they put up a lot of points

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    Geno Smith just threw his 32nd TD this season.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    Geno Smith just threw his 5th INT of the season on an unlucky tip drill.

  • Lyle Graversen

    K-State looks like they could be in trouble early, but if they’re within a TD at halftime, they’ll win. Nobody is better at making 2nd half adjustments than Bill Snyder.

  • Lyle Graversen

    K-State officially in trouble.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

      i know they better get some defense

      • Lyle Graversen

        I put it on their offense. 3 and outs against the worst defense in college football has left their defense on the field against a great offense way too long.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    ya! geno smith gets another td! there back in it!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    cant believe mizzou just lost to syracuse…

  • Lyle Graversen

    Geno has WV in the lead!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    geno smith gets his 3rd passing td and gets west virginia the lead 43-38!

  • Lyle Graversen

    Alright Geno, let’s see what you got. Down by 1, 4 mins to go.

  • Lyle Graversen

    I’ll tell you what, if Geno comes to KC, I would be fine if he brought his WRs with him.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

      just not his defense

    • Lyle Graversen

      Think we could get Geno in rd 1, Austin in rd 2, Bailey in rd 3?

      • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

        may be a stretch.. not sure about bailey

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    GENO SMITH WITH HIS 4TH TD PASS REGAINING THE LEAD VS. OKLAHOMA!!! SENSATIONAL!!!!

    • Lyle Graversen

      That last TD he threw was a thing of beauty.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    1 more stop and west viginia has it! come on!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    can smith make a 3rd comeback this game?

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.aldridge.73 Jonathan Aldridge

    yes…

  • Phil

    Geno Smith needs to be the Chiefs pick!!! The game he played was very impressive!!! Hes accurate, he can run, and his upside is much better than Barkley or any one else!!
