10 Takeaways from TCU’s disappointing loss to Iowa State

That was horrific. Absolutely terrible.
Zero points on offense. The ineptitude was grand and wide sweeping. Only two offensive players get a pass today: Darius Anderson and Kyle Hicks.
Here are the takeaways.
1. Kenny Hill had a no good, very bad day. His accuracy woes came back, his turnover woes came back, and TCU’s offense stalled out completely. It’s still confusing to me that TCU insisted on asking him to throw the ball late in the game, when he was clearly rattled. He finished the day 12-25 for 135 yards and two interceptions. He overthrew Turpin on a sure touchdown from the two yardline. He took a sack and fumbled from the three. His second interception was the nail in the coffin for TCU.
It was arguably his worst game as a Frog, and there are really no excuses to be made. He never looked comfortable, and his throws were consistently off target.

Utes drop 4th straight, lose to Ducks

We are in full blown tailspin mode right now with Utah football, the worst we’ve seen in 4 seasons. There are a lot of questions marks with this team, especially losing to a team that they should have beaten. The first question is, can they get bowl eligible? I think they can beat the teams remaining on the schedule, but they just haven’t been able to put it together on both sides of the ball of extended periods of time.
Even in the loss there were some good things that we saw. Tyler Huntley looked significantly better this week, throwing for almost 300 yards. He was pretty efficient too, throwing for almost a 60% competition percentage. Zack Moss, when given the chance, was effective, averaging over 5 yards per carry on 10 total carries. Darren Carrington had a good game too, with 130 yards in his return to Autzen Stadium.

Maryland 42, Indiana 39: Well, honeymoon’s probably over, you guys

Every Indiana football game is the same, for we are forever stuck in college football purgatory. This is a template, but this one gets revised from Crushing Loss Against Ranked Opponent to Soulbreaking Loss That Pushes Entire Season To The Brink of Failure. I don’t like to be dramatic, and I don’t like to overreact, and I don’t like to blame coaches. An 8-win Indiana season that seemed to be there for the taking a few months prior’s quickly turning into one that could see the Hoosiers at home for the holidays for the first time since 2014.
After a fast start in College Park, Indiana dropped yet another heartbreaker, 42-39 — this time to a Maryland team that looked to be overmatched heading into the game — and for a decent chunk of the day as well.

Progress Made By Rutgers In Loss To Michigan

Last year’s 78-0 shellacking of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights by the Michigan Wolverines was a mid-season embarrassment to first year Head Coach Chris Ash, the team, the fans, and the athletic program. It raised again the cries that Rutgers didn’t belong in the Big Ten, that the money spent on athletics was a waste, and that perhaps Rutgers should just go back to playing the Colgate’s and Lehigh’s of the world as they did in the 70’s.
The 35-14 loss to Michigan on Saturday was a positive step by the Scarlet Knights merely by the margin of the defeat. Rutgers held Michigan scoreless in the first quarter, was tied at 7-7 in the second, and was down by only two scores at the end of the third quarter.

At the Half the Virginia Tech Hokies Lead the Duke Blue Devils, 17-3

The previous four meetings between the Virginia Tech Hokies and Duke Blue Devils resulted in the home team losing. Last year the Hokies escaped Durham, 24-21. The year before, you may remember, the Hokies lost in 4OT, 43-45. VPI is looking to break this cycle of home losses to Duke.
The first quarter started out much as it has this season. The defense pitched back to back three and outs against the Duke offense. On their first possession the Hokies found themselves 4th and 5 and within field goal range, but decided to go for it instead of allowing Joey Slye to attempt a field goal. VT failed to convert, but the decision does demonstrate a decided lack of trust in Slye’s leg. On their second possession the Hokies again drove into Blue Devils, but were able to come away with a TD when Deshawn McLease ran it in from four yards out.

Packers TE Martellus Bennett announces plans to retire after 2017 season

While some members of the Green Bay Packers used the bye week to relax and recover from football, tight end Martellus Bennett apparently used his free time to contemplate his career. On Saturday, the tight end announced on social media that he plans to retire following the 2017 season.
The Packers made their biggest free-agent splash of the offseason by signing Bennett to a three-year, $21 million deal. Bennett immediately became the team’s most accomplished tight end since Jermichael Finley, raising expectations for an offense that finished the previous season among the league’s best units.
However, Bennett has struggled through the first half of the season, catching only 24 passes for 233 yards and no touchdowns. He has also dropped three passes, tied for the ninth most in the NFL through seven weeks.

“After conversations with my family I’m pretty sure these next 8 games will be the conclusion of my NFL career,” Bennett said in an Instagram story post. “To everyone who has poured themselves and time into my life and career. These next games are for you. Thank you.”

Stampede Blue Community Wagers Competition: Week 8 Colts at Bengals

The Colts were really bad in week 7 but at least carlcoltsfan had something to cheer about. He and two others tied with three correct wagers but he got the tie-breaker giving him the victory and putting an end to TNutty’s three week run. It wasn’t pretty but let’s quickly recap last week’s action.

Wager 1 was total receptions by Colts receivers and the over/under was set at 19.5. Jacoby Brissett somehow completed 22 passes even though he was sacked on every other play from scrimmage. I’m not sure that’s a completely accurate statement, but it sure seemed like it. Over
Wager 2 was total rushing touchdowns by both teams and the over/under was set at 2.5. The Colts didn’t score a touchdown, so obviously they didn’t contribute this week. The Jaguars got into the end zone on the ground twice but it wasn’t enough for the over.
