"These people are losing their mind"

The atmosphere at Virginia Tech on Saturday was stellar. 

Watch this video of the minute before the last play of the game and smile.  Some of the best fans in college football.

At the 0:57 mark, Mike Patrick says what we're all thinking, "These people are losing their mind." 

 

 

How did this happen?

We noticed a truly amazing stat from this weekend's game between Bethune-Cookman and North Carolina A&T.

First, a little insight.  Bethune-Cookman has a good offense.  This season, they put up 63 on Prairie View, 18 against South Carolina State, 35 vs. Hampton and last week they lost to Miami (yes, the U) 45-14.  However, in that game vs. Miami they rushed for 219 yards.  

Now a little on NC A&T...they have allowed 7 to Lynchburg, 58 to Appalachian State, 31 to Coastal Carolina and 3 to Morgan State.   

Going into the game, Bethune-Cookman was averaging nearly 200 yards per game on the ground.  NC A&T was allowing an average of nearly 100 yards on the ground.

So, what happened this game?  One week after rushing for 219 against Miami's defense, Bethune-Cookman was able to manage just 5 yards on the ground on 25 carries.  5 on 25 carries.  They lost 22-3. Proof that every game is different. 

Has anyone ever seen this before?

Georgia beat Tennessee Saturday 20-12.  The win gave Mark Richt 100 for his career. 

The game also featured a couple of ugly series.  

For Tennessee, probably the ugliest was when quarterback Tyler Bray tried to sidearm a ball past an oncoming defender, hitting his throwing hand on the facemask of the defended and fracturing his thumb. 

For Georgia, we have video of a drive that no coach ever wants to endure (especially offensive line coaches). 

At the end of the video you'll see Georgia punt.  It's about a 47 yard punt; but take note of where Tennessee catches it...it's about 8 yards short of the first down marker.  Ever seen that before?  Maybe on a terrible shank; but on a 47 yarder?

2 biggest surprises in FBS through week 6

Just took a quick look at the standings after most of tonight's action has gone final. 

Two things truly stick out to us as things you simply could not have predicted at the beginning of the season.

First, that TCU would have scored at least 35 points in every game this season, yet is only 3-2 thus far. 

Second, and just as shocking, that Hud would have his guys at Louisiana Lafayette 5-1 at this point (leading the Sunbelt). Yes, after their opening loss at Oklahoma State (61-34), the Ragin' Cajuns have run off 5 straight after beating Troy today 31-17. 

Honorable mentions: Arizona being 1-5, 0-4 in conference. Illinois, Michigan, Clemson and Georgia Tech all 6-0. Kansas State being 5-0.
