SparkPeople College Grid Iron Team Messageboard For all the college football fans out there! SparkPeople College Grid Iron Team Messageboard Hi Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> I'm just starting Spark People and wanted to just say hello. <BR> Sat, 21 Jan 2012 09:43:40 EST Ready or Not, Here I Am Hola everybody! I hope all of you are keeping strong and steadily working toward your goals! I am working hard on trying to keep my goals in sight, but if you really want to know how I'm doing and encourage me, follow my brutally honest sparkblog. I'm not going to pretend that I excercise everyday or eat uber healthy all the time. I am going to show you my struggles, defeats, failure, and hopefully my drastic improvement and achievements large and small. Please feel free to chime in at a...

Although we've had a rough couple of years and the NCAA has screwed us royally because The U did the exact same stuff if not worse and got off with nothing. I will always bleed Scarlet and Gray. I love my Ohio State Buckeyes and always will. We had a rough time against Toledo this past weekend, but Fickell took on a big challenge after Tress left (by the way, I'll always rock the sweater vest.) We'll see what happens this season and what Fickell's got under his belt. LET'S GO BUCKS! Mon, 12 Sep 2011 12:31:10 EST Color me confused Today I heard an announcer on a highlight show say that Colorado played Cal Berkeley. He went on to say, "They're both in the PAC-12 conference but this isn't a conference game." <BR> <BR> Huh? If both teams are in the conference, how can it NOT be a "conference game?"

What are you doing to burn some Kcals? Post here to let us know.... Sun, 16 Jan 2011 16:43:43 EST Ryan Mallett Now that he's entered the draft we keep hearing that he has "off-field issued." Oddly, nobody ever says what those are. I've never heard of him being in a fight, getting arrested, etc. What "off-field issues?" If you can't be specific, quit smearing him with innuendo. Mon, 10 Jan 2011 11:15:19 EST Who will win the Game... Auburn or Oregon I think this will be a great game coming down to what happens on special teams. I will be going for.... Auburn, sorry Duck fans.

Yes, there need to be penalties when rules are broken. But sometimes the rules need to be re-evaluated to see if they still make sense. <BR> <BR> The NCAA, schools and TV networks make millions off of college athletics.

Fri, 11 Jun 2010 10:14:46 EST New configurations for some conferences What will the Pac 10 look like when its done, what will happen to the Big 12, the Big Ten, what will the outcome be? Your guess is as good as mine. We will get some more information come friday but for now how does everybody feel about the changes that may happen. Tue, 8 Jun 2010 00:03:30 EST My nephew is going to Penn State! My nephew James lives in Allentown, PA, and he is one kick-butt football player. He's played both offense and defense, and he's so big that ball carriers take one look at him, hand him the ball and say "Please don't hurt me." He's also an honor student who was accepted into several colleges he never applied to! <BR> <BR> He's always wanted to go to Penn State and play for Joepa. Well, he takes the first steps in September when he starts at Penn State's Lehigh Valley Campus. Apparently freshm... Mon, 7 Jun 2010 09:49:51 EST Whom is entering this season with a new Head Coach At USF we have Skip Holtz and I'm kind of happy about that, I was not thrilled to lose our head coach but for a replacement I think we got a keeper. Fri, 28 May 2010 00:53:43 EST Any Big East Fans out there..... I hope we can get a couple more teams in the Big East, the quality is definitely good and getting better. Fri, 28 May 2010 00:50:20 EST Springtime for your team What is your team and give me what you think their record will be for the next season. <BR> My Team is the USF Bulls Record I'm hoping for is 9 wins 3 Losses.

Hi! My name's Mary, and I live in Northern California. <BR> <BR> I've got football in my DNA -- my grandfather was a professor at Notre Dame. But I became a Trojans fan when my son was injured in an accident and USC Medical Center saved his life. <BR> <BR> I love, love, LOVE anything to do with football. Looking forward to meeting all of you! Sat, 3 Apr 2010 12:28:04 EST Hello Hello. I know college football season seems is like ages away it seems. But I just wanted to introduce myself. I started using Sparkpeople on a daily basis on February 1st and have so far lost 11 1bs. I am a huge fan of both the Sooners & Gators. (Yeah I know I have two teams, but I am a Sooner fan and I attend UF so I fell in love with those Gators too). Anyways I can't wait to get into discussions when football season is alot closer. Good luck to everyone in their weightloss. <BR> <BR> -Me... Wed, 17 Feb 2010 04:10:40 EST who's gonna win today? Nebraska or Mizzou I got a feeling Mizzou is going down. NE 24-MO 14 <BR> good luck to all Mizzou fans <BR> Thu, 8 Oct 2009 08:44:43 EST Who's gonna win? Cal Vs Oregon Cal someone needs to stay above USC in pac 10. Sat, 26 Sep 2009 03:45:51 EST Who's gonna win? Penn St or Iowa Penn State it is time they break the Iowa jinx Sat, 26 Sep 2009 03:44:42 EST who's gonna win? Kansas or Southern Miss? Kansas go big 12!!!!!!!!! Sat, 26 Sep 2009 03:43:54 EST Tx tech or Houston. Who's gonna win? TX TECH go big 12!!!!!!!! Sat, 26 Sep 2009 03:43:02 EST what game do you think will be the best this week? I think there are alot of good games this weekend, and cant pick which one I think will be best. For right now I am going to guess Virginia Tech Vs Miami Fri, 25 Sep 2009 04:23:36 EST any Virginia Tech fans out there? just wanted to know how confident the team is over this weeks game. I hope real confident that way Nebraska can sneak up on them. Thu, 17 Sep 2009 03:00:41 EST Does anyone actually give Ohio St a chance next wk Just wanted to see if anyone out there gave Ohio St a chance this week against USC. I would rather see them win, but until the Big 10 starts showing up for games like this I have my doubts. Wed, 9 Sep 2009 08:21:52 EST what was the best game of the week? what does everyone think the best game of the week was other than of course if your team won. My vote goes to the Miami vs Fla state game yesterday it ended with a official review that could have changed the outcome of the game. You can't get much closer than that. I grew up dispising Miami and Fla st, but since they have fallen I kind of miss having a wide right almost every year. Tue, 8 Sep 2009 03:37:32 EST biggest upset of the week vote for what you think the biggest upset of the week was. My vote is for OK losing to BYU. Sun, 6 Sep 2009 21:31:37 EST What about OK what happened to OK yesterday? How come every time I want them to win they lose? maybe I should want them to win more often. Sun, 6 Sep 2009 21:30:28 EST On Wisconsin Hi, I'm Rachel. I just joined this team, and wanted to say hi! I'm a die hard Wisconsin Badger fan, but I love to watch college sports in general. Looking forward to an exciting season! Sun, 30 Aug 2009 19:51:32 EST College teams hangman Here is a game that I thought we can play to get people more active. College team hangman. I will give a couple letters of the team and fill in the blanks as we go along to guess or guess a letter. Ok the first one will be easy. <BR> __ S __ T__ __ G __ N S Wed, 19 Aug 2009 05:03:50 EST A-Z college football players Here is a new game for us to play that I stole from other peoples suggestions. we name a current college football player or coach starting with the letter A and going through the alphabet. So here goes.A? <BR> Pierre Allen, Nebraska Mon, 10 Aug 2009 20:06:35 EST rankings of best coaches of all time I just heard that my favorite coach of all time was listed as #34 on the list of all time greatest coaches. That is of course Tom Osborne. I think he should be higher but of college football coaches only 7 were ahead of him. I don't think several of them belonged ahead but oh well. Did any one else see this? Tell me what you thought about it Sun, 2 Aug 2009 05:11:37 EST Nebraska news Looks like Kody Spano is 100%, this is good for the QB situation. Javario Burkes won't be playing this year though hopefully the line is good. They say Lee has a arm so maybe Currenski Gillyen with his track speed can help get some long TD's for us. Thu, 30 Jul 2009 04:50:23 EST we are #2 in several categories on the leaderboard We are number 2 on alot of categories on the leaderboards how can we get to #1? Any suggestions? Mon, 27 Jul 2009 04:29:07 EST looking for tix to games this year I refuse to buy tickets from scalpers and wonder if any real fans have tix for any of these games this year: Fla Atlantic, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette, away game Missouri, Texas Tech, away game Kansas, Kansas st, if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Fri, 24 Jul 2009 02:25:41 EST some college football trivia Thought I would open a new forum that we can have fun with. I'll start off easy with the trivia. <BR> First lets start with seeing who can name some great coaching legends. <BR> Question: What coach leads the NCAA with most wins of all time currently? <BR> Thu, 23 Jul 2009 03:26:51 EST playoffs or BCS Just what it says should there be a playoffs or BCS like it is. I like the current system because I'm not rich so going to one bowl game is great for planning, but to be fair there should be a playoff to crown a real champion. What does everyone else think? Sun, 19 Jul 2009 04:16:05 EST Big 12 or SEC I think there is no question which two conferences are the best. I really think that the pac-10 and Big 10 shouldn't even be allowed in a National Championship game unless they start having a championship in their own leagues. I'm sick of the Big 10 getting blown away. The championship last year was much better. What does everyone else think? Sun, 19 Jul 2009 04:11:57 EST is anyone excited for new season to begin? Only a couple months and college football will be starting. I think that the Huskers will be a big surprise for a lot of people, what do you think of your team chances? Nebraskas big games will be Oklahoma, Kansas, Virginia tech, Missouri, Texas tech and Colorado only because they get up for Nebraska so much. Tell us about the team that you cheer and any exciting news. Husker Power!!!!! Sat, 18 Jul 2009 03:55:14 EST I need support lets see if this website can help Ok enough games I am sick of being fat. Anyone that can support me I will greatly appreciate it. Anyone that wants to challenge me that might help as I am very competitive. Just write any challenges and I will start taking this seriously as I need to get healthier and stay healthier this time not just get there then fall away from it. Any comments, etc greatly appreciated. Wed, 8 Jul 2009 03:46:32 EST Spring game looked good Nebraska looked good in the spring game. I don't know how to feel about the rankings already. I think our quarterbacks need to see a real defense and not just a base defense to see how I feel about the offense. Lee, Washington, and Green did look good though. Our recievers looked great. If they can catch like that during the season the whole NCAA better watch out. How did other teams do at their spring games and any feedback on Nebraska's Fri, 22 May 2009 04:18:40 EST Is anybody posting here anymore? I've been gone for quite a while and come back and noticed no one is posting here. Its college football time and I thought there would be all kinds of posts. So where is everybody? Sun, 2 Nov 2008 02:09:27 EST Challenge for teams taking on theHuskers this year I'm leader of the Husker team. We are trying to get a challenge going w/teams we play this year. That would be New Mexico State,Virginia Tech, Mizzou,Texas Tech,Iowa state, Baylor,Oklahoma,Kansas,Kansas State,& Colorado.If you have teams for any of these schools & would like to put together a challenge, please let me know via sparkmail. Thank you! Thu, 11 Sep 2008 10:53:53 EST SEC football rocks!! Hey everyone, <BR> <BR> I just joined SP and am really enjoying it! I am a huge fan of SEC football. I know the overall opinion is that the Big Ten conference is a force to be reckoned with ... I TOTALLY DISAGREE!!! Look at the overall numbers for the SEC - They rock!! <BR> <BR> Ole Miss is my fav although I must be "Nutt"s ...... (nice play on words there huh?)Yea I know we haven't been a big contender since MY Eli left but there's still hope!! <BR> <BR> I just wanted to say hello. I'... Fri, 20 Jun 2008 12:54:32 EST Bear Down! Howdy y'all alumnus of the University of Arizona. Where it's easy (well until this year) to be a basketball fan, but it takes a whole 'nother sort to root for the football team. <BR> <BR> It's been a rough decade for the mighty-mighty Wildcats, but there's always next year! :) Wed, 26 Mar 2008 18:34:17 EST I miss football.... Its only been a few weeks since the Super Bowl - but man do I really miss football. College Basketball just isnt the same. Wed, 27 Feb 2008 22:49:32 EST C-USA All the Way :) Go UCF! We may not be in the top 10 or anything, but we play clean and fair and never have I seen my team give up in a game. We've gotten better and better the last couple years, and Kevin Smith put us in the spotlight this season! I know we'll take C-USA again next season, and I'd love to play a top ten team in a bowl game. Wed, 20 Feb 2008 09:29:46 EST Draft Well, as if WVU hadn't had it's share of losses in the past month, with pretty much our entire coaching staff going to Michigan, we had two key players (plus another not-so-key) leave early. Steve Slaton, our phenomenal running back and reciever darius reynaud have both decided to take a chance in the draft. <BR> <BR> Anybody else losing anybody early? Any surprises? Tue, 15 Jan 2008 18:18:28 EST G-E-O-R-G-I-A . Goooo Dawgs sic em, woof woof woof Just wanted to say hey. Sun, 6 Jan 2008 09:54:01 EST ROLL TIDE!!! Hopefully the Tide will Roll tonight against Colorado. It will be a close game and hopefully Bama will come out victorious. Time to go get ready for the game. Y'all have a great night. Sun, 30 Dec 2007 19:38:06 EST RU Rah Rah! Hi everybody! That's right, I'm a Rutgers fan. Not just because they were 2006's media darlings either. I'm a proud graduate too! Nice to meet everyone, and good luck with staying healthy! Fri, 28 Dec 2007 13:39:02 EST Final thoughts on your season? Wow, this board has been slow, I guess we were all wrapped up in our games. How did your season go? Better, worse, or about the same as expected? Anything really great or really bizarre happen? <BR> Mon, 17 Dec 2007 15:03:46 EST I bleed RED and BLACK! GO DAWGS! I was just wondering if there are any other Georgia Bulldawg fans here? I'm watching the KU/Mizzou game right now. What a good game. Can't say that I wasn't dissappointed to see Tenn win earlier today in 3OT. Now we don't get the SEC championship game even though we have a better record and way better BCS ranking. What a weird system. Who else thinks that there should be a play-off system for the BCS title? It's only fair!! Here's the real question... How do you get in your exercise on... Sat, 24 Nov 2007 22:13:06 EST TRINITY or CAL? So IM guessing that most of you saw that amazing Trinity U play vs. Millsaps. So what is better - the Trinity play this past week or "The Play" from Cal vs. Stanford when the band ran onto the field? Wed, 31 Oct 2007 23:57:15 EST Want to see the funniest thing ever? Watch last night's BC victory over VT. <BR> <BR> Celebrating another classic Chokie moment!!!! Fri, 26 Oct 2007 09:23:02 EST BCS Predictions Real shake up year, no team seems to dominate. Closest to controling top spot would have to be LSU. Everyone seems to be pretty evenly matched (if they're ready to play). What teams do you think will fall out of top 10 this week? AND what teams do you think will move up? As a Sooner fan, it wouldn't bother me to see any of the top 3 go. Iffy for top 2, LSU probably here to stay for season. Thu, 25 Oct 2007 09:28:20 EST Best and Worst Uniforms Was just watching the Mizzou/Texas Tech game Saturday, and thought; "man, Tech has some ugly uniforms." I don't think they're the worst, however. I thought this would be a fun discussion. <BR> <BR> Worst Uniforms... <BR> 1. Wyoming Cowboys (seriously, how many shades of brown do you need) <BR> 2. Oregon State Beavers (the new jerseys and the orange pants are really bad) <BR> 3. Oregon Ducks jersey combination numbers 2, 18, 32, 47, 89, 112 (haha..enough said...the fake sheet metal pattern o... Tue, 23 Oct 2007 09:52:19 EST GO GREEN! GO WHITE! Another top team knocked off today? I hope so. <BR> <BR> New to the team. Big college football fan. Use to play and coach. Im just getting around to losing that playing weight. Hoping to find the support here to do it. <BR> <BR> Jake Sat, 20 Oct 2007 11:44:17 EST Down Goes LSU! Sorry, I gotta brag. <BR> <BR> GO CATS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sun, 14 Oct 2007 16:20:24 EST Sad Saturday What a sad performance or lack there of for my beloved Georgia Bulldawgs. I know many of you other guys had a sad day as well. Sun, 7 Oct 2007 09:22:35 EST How'd Your Team Do During Upset Saturday? If anything one may take from this football season is: never underestimate the underdog. That being said, how did you team do? Hold their ground or did they joined my Florida boys on the downside of the score? <BR> <BR> In some ways, though, I think a loss may have been good for Florida because it'll drive them to work harder and play cleaner. They now have something to prove. LSU is next for us and it will definately be a make or break. Mon, 1 Oct 2007 08:33:11 EST Off Topice But.........GO CUBS!!!!!!!! We're in the playoffs baby!!!!! <BR> <BR> Kentucky is ranked. What a year! <BR> <BR> -Jill Sat, 29 Sep 2007 09:30:21 EST ahhh those Mizzou boys made it in the top 25! <em>243</em> Thu, 27 Sep 2007 13:56:19 EST comments on Grundy for OSU? I think he did what every coach has wanted to do for quite some time! Thu, 27 Sep 2007 13:55:07 EST Week 4 Updates - How did your team do? Can you believe the season is 1/3 over for most of us? How did you do this week - and how is your season meeting your expectations thus far? <BR> <BR> WVU had a great game against East Carolina, winning 48 - 7 at home. I expected us to be 4-0 at this point, but take nothing for granted. We're on the road this week at South Florida - unfortunately I won't be making the road trip to Tampa. USF upset us last year, keeping us out of BCS contention - so we're itching for revenge. <BR> <BR> ... Mon, 24 Sep 2007 01:12:41 EST Thoughts from the great minds of college football: -Pulled this from our message boards today, thought I'd share. <BR> <BR> Let's reflect on the wisdom of those who came before. <BR> <BR> "Football is only a game. Spiritual things are eternal. Nevertheless, Beat <BR> Texas."

Doing great till that Nebraska game...hmm maybe we can destroy them like USC? I doubt but we all can dream wild! Thu, 20 Sep 2007 13:54:37 EST Week 3 - How'd You Do? I saw some upsets as well as some rank defending games. How did your team stack up? Mon, 17 Sep 2007 16:19:08 EST Go USC!!! Hey all, <BR> <BR> I'm with the team everyone loves to hate! But I'm really happy to have found this forum. I love the fall because it means the start of college football. I am indeed a Trojan so you can just call me "Astrid of Troy." <BR> <BR> FIGHT ON!!! <em>104</em> <em>205</em> Thu, 13 Sep 2007 02:24:29 EST Who do you love to hate? For me, it's former rival Virginia Tech. Since they left our conference, we don't play anymore, but to me there's no better Saturday than when the Mountaineers win and the Hokies lose. Tue, 11 Sep 2007 12:22:11 EST Week 2 - How is your team(s) doing? Ok, so a little late on this, but fun nonetheless! <BR> <BR> WVU beat Marshall 48-23. <BR> <BR> If you don't know where Marshall is, you're not alone. This is an in-state "rivalry" with Marshall in Huntington, WV. WVU is really 10 times the team that Marshall is, and nobody outside of Huntington, including Coach Rod, wants to play them, especially in their high-school quality stadium in the middle of nowhere. Marshall obviously spent their entire off-season preparing for our "match-up" be... Tue, 11 Sep 2007 12:14:31 EST HOUSE DIVIDED!!! Hi All! My name is Nichole. I am a die-hard football fan. I live for football season. I am a HUGE GA Bulldogs fan and my husband is a HUGE Tech fan. Come football season it is always an argument about which team is better. I must admit, Tech looks like they may have a pretty good team this season, espeically with that Defense. But I have faith that Stafford can pull a good season out. I am a little upset about the loss to SC last night. I cannot stand Steve Spurrier. When all is sai... Sun, 9 Sep 2007 11:02:25 EST Celebrate with me... The Vols got their first win of the season! Woot..Woot.. Let's keep it up boys. We are going Gator hunting next week. Hopefully, we can keep playing like we did last night! <em>62</em> Sun, 9 Sep 2007 08:27:07 EST Oklahoma fan!

Now that I'm in DC I'm having major withdrawls. Direct TV College game plan is my life saver though! This should be a great year for the Sooners! Sat, 8 Sep 2007 23:28:03 EST I am a HUGE TENNESSE VOLS FAN! I absolutley love my boys. ROCKY TOP! I was utterly depressed last Saturday night when California got there sought after revenge.

Thu, 6 Sep 2007 14:27:16 EST Challenge? Hi everyone - I was thinking that we should incorporate some sort of challenge into the College Football Season - but couldn't really come up with any solid ideas. I tossed around things like using the number of points home/opponent team scores for cardio min, etc. . but again, nothing solid or really fun. Anybody interested??? Have any suggestions? <BR> <BR> <em>281</em> <em>208</em> <em>281</em> Tue, 4 Sep 2007 14:34:30 EST Biggest Ever? So, this past weekend, my alumnus App St not only upset, but truly put a spanking on the 5th ranked team in the country. I know this will go down as one of the biggest, but is it? Do you know of a bigger one? I think a technical school beat Knute Rockne's Irish back in '29, but is this bigger? And is the biggest surprise that they won, or that they outscored Michigan 21-0 in the second qtr., had a dropped pass wide open in the end zone and a missed field goal, before this would have been at l... Mon, 3 Sep 2007 15:05:39 EST Florida Fan Stepping In... Proud proud Gator fan that has been there through thick and thin from Spurrier to Zook to God-sent Myer. After being the underdogs in last year's championship to being a team that is compiled mostly of freshmen, we always have something to prove. We are the pride of the SEC and hope to keep that title this year. <BR> <BR> Btw, Im Ashley :) Sun, 2 Sep 2007 17:31:51 EST Georgia Wins!! Bulldawgs win 35 to 14 against Oklahoma state.Michigan lost.

Late Saturday I got a DDE right when finishing up a game and although the game was over (I was up 40-13) it is quite disturbing. I've read that DDEs are rampant and wonder if it has something to do with the production values of the actual CD or what. Just wondering if anyone else is having problems with DDEs? Mon, 23 Jul 2007 15:42:54 EST I have it! I scored the game early and have put about 30+ hours of gaming into it. If anyone has any questions send me a sparkmail and i'll hook you up as best I can.

As a Buckeyes fan I don't think we have a very good shot at winning it all mostly because of the loss of Troy Smith. I think realistically we will lose 1 or maybe 2 games, although our defense was very good last year and most of those guys come back so that allows me to harbour hope, albeit small, we could go undefeated. Even if we do though I don't see us beating a USC or Texas, a team who has a more experienced QB. <BR> <BR> Anyways, I'm seeing a 2 loss ... Wed, 4 Apr 2007 10:29:51 EST Welcome to the team!
