Props should be given to Auburn for being heads up on the final play to win the game. But the same cannot be said for Alabama. In fact, it’s very embarrassing that they let it happened.
It just seemed like the entire special teams, save for maybe one or two players, were ready for a potential return on a missed kick. In fact, most times when it comes to a ball fielded that deep into the end zone, the returner doesn’t get past the 30-yard line.
But it was great blocking on Auburn’s part and the delayed reaction by Alabama really took away from this ending for me. It was a thrilling ending, but it came in part because one team just wasn’t ready. That’s a shame.
That game yesterday was everything that I wanted and it delivered. It was everything SJSU needed to show the world that they are still a team that can win big games.
What we got was a thrilling, exhilarating game like I’ve never seen before. It was a game of two halves. It was the unstoppable offenses in the first half and the clutch defensive stops in the second half.
Needing to win that game (and break the three-game losing streak) to make it back to a bowl game was a big deal for the program. SJSU needed it so bad and taking out #16 ranked and undefeated Fresno State to do it in the process makes it so sweet.
Remember when I did my end of the year best and worst dressed? I already have declared the winner for the NCAA football category.
Please tell me this is not the best looking uniform that you’ve seen this year? Everything about it is amazing. It’s simple but with vibrant colors. The cleats are amazing and most importantly, it embodies the community and the campus so perfectly.
Winner! Go Rainbow Warriors!
What do you get when you mix two wood finishes, a large center court logo that isn’t centered and an image from the movie 300? You get this!
I’m not really big on these overly designed courts. They’re only nice if it isn’t too much of a gimmick. I know that the courts of the past in the NBA in the 1990s were like this, but they added character to the team. This one does, but it’s still a little too much for me.
First of all, I never liked having two finishes to the wood. Inside the arc is real dark and the rest is a lighter finish. I would much prefer it being the light one.
It basically comes to this: Do the Cal Bears want to be viewed as that money-hungry school that would sell their tradition for glamour?
Cal knew that it wasn’t right. The fans voiced their opinion. And in the end, Cal did right by not letting the tradition of the Big Game change.
I was hoping that this was the way it would be but I was afraid that there would be too much power in the glamour. Glad we have no change. Memories of the Big Game should remain with the schools, not the big stadium for the big boys.
It would suck if a moment like this was played on a neutral site.
There are some mixed reactions to this potential deal to move the Big Game to new Levi’s Stadium in 2014.
In a business sense, it’s a great idea. Stanford is closer to Santa Clara so the travel for them is easier. Even though Cal renovated their stadium, Levi’s Stadium will have a bigger seating capacity and has a lot better amenities for the fans.
There’s a lot of potential revenue to be made here and to have it at a marquee venue would definitely boost its exposure.
This comes only a couple days after Jay Bilas decided to show the NCAA’s hypocrisy. Did Bilas’ public tweetfest become that final straw in this whole NCAA mess?
It’s very shocking that the NCAA would hold on for so long with all the controversy that has stemmed over the years.
This is a step in the right direction but it still doesn’t solve the issue of the NCAA using these student-athletes for their own profit and the athletes themselves don’t receive a fair compensation.
But I guess baby steps right now is the best. I hope they get it right down the line.
The NCAA is angry at Johnny Manziel for supposedly selling his autograph for money. That’s against the NCAA rules. In fact, using the player’s image or likeness for profit is something the NCAA has said they would never to do expose their players.
Despite the NCAA claiming this, it’s clear that they do it anyway through their loopholes. No player names are used in any kind of merchandise that is sold, but it’s so quite obvious that it refers to a certain player.
So the NCAA has gotten heat over this and ESPN’s Jay Bilas decided to show that the NCAA is doing the opposite of what they’re professing.
