I think this thread will be good for post count.
Like you need it?
There isn't enough time on the clock for Bama to break low three digits. What's the spread?
Tide is 36.5 favs
CSU will not cover
It's 39.5. I'm not sure that there isn't enough time for triple digits though, even with the Bama backups playing 3 quarters.
Alabama will win by as many points as they choose.
That's why I hate betting these types of games. Bama could be up 35-0 at half, opt to do nothing in the 2nd half, win 42-3, and you lose money if you bet on them.
Alabama backups will get a lot of playing time in the 2nd half.
Exactly. CSU covers if Satan lets them...
So the bet is not really on football but on Saban's quantum of mercy/professional friendship.....
That may well be. Sure will be odd to see both those teams on the same field.
Always weird to see someone carrying on a conversation with themselves too...
Both of me agree.
Bama doesn't score on their first drive and now CSU gets a first down?!?
CSU looks good
And Bama looks about as excited as a five year old looking at his first plate of brussel sprouts. Even with that it is just a matter of time.
Good luck pressing these Bama WR's...
Looks like CSU is realizing who they are playing against. That initial burst of energy has worn off and now the stuff they do in the MWC to dodge tacklers is getting them planted. The punter looked like he just wanted to get rid of the football and didn't care where it went.
The only explanation i can come up with at this point is that Saban told his team to sleepwalk thru the first half.
CSU is obviously over-matched, but their defense has looked pretty good.
McElwhine is afraid to go downfield. He needs to take more chances.
That, and the fact that Yeldin sat out Q1...
How much $$$ does CSU get paid for playing one-and-done series and for being on ESPN for this body bag game?
this game has got to represent a healthy chunk of their 2013 revenue.
Damn, that's like a Lady Gaga concert, 2 weddings, a bar mitzvah and a tractor pull!
Wow,what an uninspired half of football
This half has been an unquestioned win for CSU.
They aren't getting blown out on the scoreboard worse than they get against some of their MWC opponents like Boise and they haven't had anyone carried off the field and lost for the year which is a legitimate concern when a game is such a clear physical missmatch.
Bama probably played more inspired in their spring game
St. Saban is a merciful host and overlord.
Easily. Not to mention the Big 12 television revenue
