Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

As usual, language and delicate sensibility caveats apply. Without further preamble:

Military Bowl
Cincinnati 35 Virginia Tech 31

It was a desultory day for the Turkeys. Tech extended its bowl streak, but then promptly pooped the bed and had its first losing season in about a quarter of a century. It is a very young team, and an injured one, but fans didn’t know whether to blame that, an uncharacteristically soft defense, the erratic offense, poor QB play, poor playcalling, or just plain ole’ Justin Fuente. They were in agreement on one thing: Thank god it’s over.

Send that Bud Foster clown packing. Without Beamer telling him what to do, he’s clueless

The silver lining is the husband won our NYE dinner $ with the cover.

Defense couldn’t stop a good high school 5A offense.

A lot of coaches were fired today . After this game with Cincy, Fuentes should be to

The team soft like baby food now..

Why does the Hokie look like the Chick-fil-A emblem

This team is a fucking embarrassment

Defense PATHETIC PUSSY BUMS

Worst part of no new NCAA franchise games- I can’t fire Fuente and hire myself instead.

I expect a comical ending

It’s hard to make a defensive stand flat on your ass

Disgracing the ACC. Again.

Today’s play calling was fine until it mattered. Then the staff dialed up some unnecessary roll out, power-I nonsense.

The tackling was abysmal. The middle of the defense was softer than baby shit.

I think I speak for all tech fans when I say got damn I’m just glad this season is over

I would expect nothing less from you than a shit gif.

Fuente turned us into East Memphis

I hate to think how bad they would have beaten us if their QB hadn’t been injured. What a joke of a game. I think we are in trouble next year

Pour some beer on it

JF brought the wrong offensive coordinator from Memphis.

Any attempt to put a positive spin on it is just an effort to polish & shine shit. Bottom line. Oh, actually there is one positive thing. It’s finally fucking over.

Orange Bowl
Alabama 45 Oklahoma 34

We know what happened here. Alabama showed up for 17 minutes and hung 28 points on the woeful Sooners. OU had ZERO yards at the end of one, the Ewok looked like a guy playing an actual defense, and then Alabama went into its ole’ Saban kill-clock mode. When Oklahoma would get within two scores, the Tide literally decided to add another touchdown whenever it wished. It was a physical beating and a dirty game.
Like the Red River Rivalry, OU fans come up short in the meltdown game too versus their Texas compatriots. But, their delicious salty tears are worth it nonetheless.

Kicking that field goal is basically admitting defeat. Ol’ Lincoln is laying down

At least they got a tan while they were at the beach

Totaling embarrassing!! Worst performance ever!!

Man... I hope it doesn’t end up being like 63-14

So, about next year .... have we considered a defense? Just a thought.

Getting exposed just like Notre Dame? Seems to be en Vogue

This is worse than when my wife left me

Hop off my cock dude jesus

I like how we can bring seven men and LITERALLY no one ever gets home

We obviously need to pay our players more

I blame this debacle on Lincoln Riley. Mike Stoops should have been fired when Riley took over.

Start playing under protest. Refs missing major calls.

I hate Alabama I don’t want to see Alabama vs Clemson everybody predicted that

What a joke we are doing absolutley everything the trash talkers said...choke choke I’m so pissed

That was excellent coverage. And they still scored. We are &*$#&

Go home, you’ve embarrassed our state.

If the refs didn’t favor Alabama, it would have been a closer ball game. Just saying

You have to play defense to win these big games. 54 to UGA last year & now this

Talent differential is obvious. Everywhere on the field. Let’s just forfeit. 1-0 doesn’t look too bad.

Just out of curiosity, did anyone else at the game notice the scoreboard at halftime? The Alabama score went up to 45 during the half. Who was in the controls booth and how did they know it was going to be 45?

That announcer is so biased.for alabama he aint even trying to hide it.unprofessional corny dude

Nick Seban needs anger management

I love Lincoln... But good golly this man cannot coach... You defer the ball to the #1 team in the nation... while you tote the worst defense in college football.

Well hell!!! I guess I’ll be cheering for Clemson next...forget Alabama and their hot headed cheap shot playing asses!

When you have a soft ass defense, this is what happens

I figured it would be bad but this bad? No.

Remember that time when Bobby Boucher showed up at half time and the Sooners won the orange bowl.

This is the consequence of playing in a weak ass conference. We are never prepared for the good teams.

ESPN needs disclaimer each time they come back to game from Commercial...What you you are seeing is violent and embarrassing, viewer discretion is advised.

Alabama quit passing on us and ran the ball to eat clock. We didn’t do anything on defense to win this game. Atrocious play followed up with piss poor tackling.

DOGSHIT effort from some heartless chumps!!!!

Fucking Ass every year its Alabama and Clemson. I literally don’t even want to watch College football next year there is literally no point.

What in the fuck are you actually doing? Why the fuck are you even on the field?

I don’t know what they are playing. But it ain’t football.

I’m not one to say shit like this honestly, but the referees deserve the MVP spot for Bama

Defense has a drug problem again...getting drug up and down the field.

Where are the “win is a win” retards? This is what happens when your happy with barely getting by!

Now we will end up like UCF

I was delusional. I really thought they could do it.

Holy crap Don’t remember ever hearing a crowd yelling “Over rated” in the 1st qtr

<p zoompage-fontsize="15" style="">will

Belk Bowl
Virginia 28 South Carolina 0

Deebo Samuel sat out this game, but it really wouldn’t have mattered. Muschamp came out and straight Muschamped. Jake Bentley was terrible. The offense was nonexistent. And the defense got pummeled at the line of scrimmage by a mediocre ACC team.
In short, it was South Carolina football.

Charlotte too big of a stage for us lol

Stop hiring these “hand me down” Florida coaches.

Remember: the majority of athletic leadership at USC is okay with this. This is fine. To make stupid bowl games and earn the school some additional revenue off an extra game? That is acceptable. Muschamp is a perfect architect of their vision.

Muschamp is who he has always been, all talk and shit product...

I didn’t know a rooster could lay an egg

You and I may not see a winning program in our lives

I want a refund on the tickets I bought for this bowl game. In 33 years this is the lamest bullshit I’ve ever seen from us... I’m serious on the refund tho.

Get them on some damn OSTARINE. Wtf do we do in the weight room???

No Nick Saban would ever move here.

Does Clemson have some kind of ped that would help Benchly throw 510 yards every game?

They will NEVER be an elite program. If you can accept this simple fact, USC football will never again break your heart.

Can a fan hate their own fanbase? Asking for a friend...

I’m so tired of being shitty.

Y’all ass asf how you get swept by a halftalent team

We look like we only showed up for the shopping spree

When is the next video of another new construction project for the Athletic Dept going to be posted? We have a few new and nice buildings to show top recruits that go to play for winning programs.

Only div 1 football team that dreads 3rd and short and fourth and short

Do your fans a favor and suspend the program until you can field a competitive team

Our program is shit. Deebo won’t save it. If I were him I would not risk it for this half ass program. He has consider his future because we know Carolinas future. We sick and will always auck

Look at the bright side at least we’re consistent – been seeing this for a loooooong time.

Guess it could be worse. We could be Nebraska.

Should have been the “Belt Bowl”, cause the gamecocks got their asses whipped

Our cheerleaders were much prettier and perform much better than theirs.

Why r we so bad?

Look on the bright side. There is always baseball

This is the sort of game that doesn’t surprise anyone when it’s followed by a number of decommitments. It leaves that bad a taste. I doubt any undecided recruits are watching this and thinking “Oh yeah! That’s where I want to be!”

How do you go from Holtz to Spurrier to this

Omg we aren’t even a SEC team.

Camping World Bowl
Syracuse 34 WVU 18

This game was hella’ competitive for the first three quarters, and West Virginia actually took an 18-17 lead into the fourth. Then the Big 12 in the ‘Eers showed up, Dana had some curious playcalls down the stretch, and a first-time starting QB looked like it. Yet, all the fans were most pissed off about the absence of QB Will Grier. He, and two other WVU contributors, sat out this one.
Mountaineers fans think it would have swung the game — they’re probably right.

When I die I’m going to invite WVU to attend so they can let me down one last time

Thanks to all the WVU “teammates” that sat out

WVU gave Grier a career. Gave him a scholarship. Invested time and money in him and this was how he repaid them. By not playing one last game

Hologrosen sucks cock. Grier is a bitch.

Should be ashamed of himself. Getting rich off taxpayer money in one of the most poor states in the country.

David Sills played. David Sills is a true Mountaineer. Take note punks.

Can we cut Pitts’s arms off at the sockets? Damn if he doesn’t want to tackle with them…smdh

Is the rifle team still good?

hope it cost you in the pros!!!!

I wouldn’t draft a quitter PUSSY!

To be a Mountaineer fan is to be an alcoholic. 40+ years of this and you think I’d be used to losing.

Holgorsen proved yesterday that he is a incompetent, foul mouth, idiot.

Groundhog day, its every year.....mediocrity season, bowl loss

You try being a fan for 40+ years. And putting up with this shit year after year. Then get back to me.

Good job complete morons. Now go and f yourself.

Allison just needs to grow that stache out and im sure then he’ll get some of that masculine sports magic

Will Grier is a piece of crap.

Thanks Grier, Jennings and Cajuste....may you all end up in the rebooted XFL.

Fortunately, Syracuse outsucked us

Would we have won with Grier? Maybe. But, Let’s focus on the future, and just how awful this team is going to be next year instead.

Embarrassing. Feel bad for Sills. I will not root for Grier or Jennings or Cajuste-selfish bastards

Pass game is working so lets run it into a stacked box twice in a row and then throw a bubble screen.

I really hate Syracuse And their fans. They all fuckin suck.

This loss is on the “leaders”. They want us fans to support them through thick and thin during the season and then abandon us

I can handle 8 wins and a shit bowl if we look like an organized and well coached team. This was another humiliation.

Go shove your salty bitter treats up your own ass too while youre at it

Who do we hate more now tho? Dana or Rich?

Music City Massacre
Auburn 63 Purdue 14

The game wasn’t even this close. Auburn jumped out to a 21-0 lead in seven minutes, were up 56-7 at the half, and literally did not throw a forward pass in the second half. The Tigers could have legitimately hit 80 on the Boilers. Purdue fans were struck by the talent gap, the Purdue-ness of it all, and certainly how dirty Auburn plays (welcome to the club, Boilermakers!) In the end, everyone was turning on everyone else — the true sign of a Grade A meltdown.

They look like a mean, talented team.

This is criminal assault.

So much for Auburn being disinterested.

Aren’t there weather manipulators? Can we get it to storm and get this baby canceled?

Going for it on 4th down, up 42-7 Classy af

Welcome aboard the banana peel express

I went to the kitchen to get a snack at the quarter break. Purdue had the ball. I walk back in the room in Auburn is kicking an extra point.

We are getting out-everythinged

Auburn is averaging a cool 20.4 yards per pass.

This Auburn Team Is Super Thuggish Every damn play they are running their mouth and shoving…ready to watch us rope a dope them

Maybe we are trying to lull them into thinking this is easy?

I’m gonna be REALLY drunk by 4 if I keep watching this game

My wife took the kids and went to her sister’s house. She knows how I get

GO PUR_UE D stayed in WL it seems.

Karma is a bitch Auburn. This will be remembered.
How is this karma? Should they kneel it and embarrass us more?

You can run the ball, put in backups, not go for it on fourth down, stop blitzing and stop calling timeouts.

It’s the first half

This Auburn team is dirty as fuck. I’m sorry but these dudes are thug

Brohm looks pretty chill for getting his ass kicked Maybe he knows something we don’t or he’s just happy about his new paycheck I don’t know

If THEY can score 56 points in a half so can you!

When are the refs going to start calling holding - I see so many blatant ones that drive

We do not want Bama

John Purdue Clubbers will be clogging arteries at a bbq joint downtown by halftime

You have people genuinely pissed that Auburn ran the ball on 4th and G from the 15 instead of kicking a FG to add more points. We genuinely have some of the most clueless fans in college sports.

What was even worse was the last 2 redzone trips being nice and not scoring on purpose. How embarrassing

Purduish

The ole 3 and out plan was well executed

This is Tyler trentss fault

Never thought I would say I would rather work than watch football.

Can’t believe I drove seven hours for whatever the fuck this is…

s the Helmet Interception the new “Butt Fumble”?

Apparently, all it takes to be a ‘good’ football coach is to turn a crappy football school into a slightly less crappy football school.

Bowl selection committee owes Purdue an apology for the gross mismatch

I was proud of the classy Boilermakers! Auburn players were acting like hoodlums.

All time record in bowl game - ANY bowl game - is 70. I’m now sticking around for history.

It’s just one game. Maybe one game we shouldn’t be at, but just one game.

Running up the score my ass. You should lose posting privileges. Auburn could have hung 100 on Purdue if they wanted to with 56 points on the board, yet scored 7. Purdue had their fucking first string defense in the entire second half against Auburn’s second and third team. That’s more bush league on Purdue’s part than anything, yet you’re going to sit here and accuse Auburn of running up the score? You’re CLUELESS.

We want them to not get in our face talking shit like thugs We want them to act like human beings. Not felons
If you don’t understand the racist connotations of the word “thug” you are extremely ignorant

This was the worst preparation by a college coaching staff in modern bowl history.

This was the football equivalent, of Rocky 4 when Apollo Creed got beat to death

We were record breakers, the most points scored by an SEC team in a bowl game ever, and we helped it happen!!

At least we kept THE Ohio State out of the playoffs!!

At least the commercials aren’t hurting my feelings like the game is.

Las Vegas Bowl
Fresno State 31 Arizona State 20

Another highly competitive game that came down to quarterback play. The talent advantage was plainly with the Sun Devils, but they also had two of their best players sit and a host of injuries. Then, when it came crunch time, the Goat of Tempe showed up — QB Manny Wilkins. He ended this game with a QBR of 26, if that tells the story.

And, while many fans savaged their quarterbacks this bowl season, perhaps none were as brutal as the Sun Devil faithful.

Thank god we dont have to deal with OVERTHROW Wilkins next year!!!! Garbage ass QB

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas! Good riddance Manny!

Thanks Manny for losing this game for us, just like every other game

Herm, youve set the foundation. Eno Benjamin winning the heisman next year watch

Is Tua declaring for the draft or something

Do you think any of this year had anything to do with the head coach having no ability to teach a quarterback how to play the position.

My little girl dog got old. She became incontinent, and couldn’t control taking a dump, it just dripped out. She couldn’t see well and couldn’t hear at all. I quarantined the area, and kept her around and cleaned up after her for 13 months or so until she became lame as well. But she always had a smile on her face when you pet her and fed her, etc. So the day came when it was time, I took her into the vet to put her down. On the way, I smelled a bad smell and pulled over. She had shat all over the back of my car. I nodded my head yes, that it was definitely time and she made it very clear that was the case. This performance by Manny Wilkins is giving me the same result/feeling as the above.

Fuck you Manny!!!!!!!!!! You are dog shit

Please be sure to lock Manny Wilkins out of the building and not be allowed to steal another year from this program. I’m sure he’s a nice kid, but he sucks brutally at QB

Season after season, we are treated to analysts consistently showing us missed reads or overthrown passes. The phrase “That’s one he’d like to have back” is exhausting.

Fresno is trash but you’re the gunk on the bottom of my shoes.

Should’ve hired Tedford, but will have to endure four years, two bowls, and a max of seven wins until 2022. Worst half I’ve seen against a MWC by a PAC team maybe ever.

MANNY THREW THE GAME!

Manny had the heart and balls, just not the brains.

Good to know you’re a keyboard hero cuz if you acted like this in public you would have been beaten to death.

We’ll be back with more meltdown next week, when we have some big boys for you: Michigan, Georgia, Penn State, Washington, and of course, the loser of Alabama/Clemson.
