NSFW: It’s Meltdown Time! Week 13 — Lone Star Sadness, PAC 12 Cannibalism

Contains your recommended weekly dose of PAC 12 cannibalism.

NCAA Football: Texas at Baylor Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

November football brings a special something about it. Losses hurt that much more, commenters bring more anger, and hot seats get that much hotter.

High stakes mean higher there’s more room to fall for those who make the poor decision to lose football games so late in the month. We’re just one week away from rivalry week so it’s time to savor every last drop of melting before we run out.

Penn State traveled to Columbus with a backup QB and a dangerous sliver of hope to beat an Ohio State which makes losses all the more painful. When the Nittany Lions scored 17 points in the third quarter it looked like they had a chance. They didn’t. Some Ohio State won 28-17.

Texas went to Waco to play a football game with Baylor. Offensively the Longhorns were painful to watch but they did manage to score their lone touchdown with two seconds remaining on the clock. Baylor won 24-10 but the outcome was never in doubt.

SMU flew up to face Navy in a game that would have a major impact in who made the AAC Championship game. Those mustangs drove the ball as well in the rain as Dallas drivers do, which I can tell you from experience is horrible. Sonny Dykes’ magical season will not culminate in a conference championship appearance but instead with some low tier bowl that this team overachieves in. Navy won 35-28.

Oregon made the mistake of going to the state of Arizona to play Arizona State in a prime time night game. This scene was right out of the PAC 12 cannibalism textbook. Justin Herbert looked dreadful and even a 21 point fourth quarter couldn’t save them from their fate. Arizona State would win 31-28.

People say cusswords below so if you don’t like it... well y’all know the drill by now.

PENN FIFTEEN STATE

If you start with really low expectations, it’s impossible to be disappointed. I think.

The Iphone alarm commercial should be considered a war crime.

I can’t wait to see what halftime adjustments we didn’t make

Number 9 gets there first

“GUESS WHO? CHASE YOUNG”

Penn State center is controlled by a random number generator

OSU tried to beat themselves, but Penn State refused to let that happen, like when my parents kept knocking on the door when I took “long showers”

Imagine punting on 4th & 7 at OSU 36 and 4th & 4 at OSU 42 as a dog on the road

USC can fuck right off if they think they can have Franklin. The man makes some terrible decisions now and then, especially in tough road games, but he is ours.

I want some of whatever our center was smoking in the 4th quarter

Good teams win

Great teams cover

This game was the closest blowout I’ve ever seen.

Field rush for that?

Again, calling for Rahne getting canned. Only 1 long drive and that was the first drive of the 3rd quarter. All other drives were quick or short field. Game on the line and calls a play action. Levis doing well on the read option and he calls a pass that gets picked. If Franklin is serious about being elite Rahne needs to go.

1-9 on the road against ranked teams. That won’t get you in the playoffs.

Rinse. Wash. Repeat. Franklin has hit his peak.

You know it’s interesting how Franklin talks about bring elite to his players but doesn’t keep that same energy with what he demands from his assistant coaches

Ohio state just played their worst game by far and still beat us by 2+ Score’s. This sucks ass.

I expected Penn State to blown out by the best team in the country. But why did it have to be close enough to give me hope :(

I’ve never seen a center just decide to snap the ball before anyone was ready so many times

We got all the breaks in the second half and still couldn’t fucking win. Things were better when Paterno was here.

HOM TERMAN

We thought Herman would bring us back to prominence.

We thought we’d be in they playoffs.

We thought Sam would be in contention for the Heisman.

....What the fuck was in that Kool-aid???

Anyone who is surprised by what’s happening clearly hasn’t watched enough texas or Baylor games

Tom Herman in 2016 at Houston:

”Winners get the corner office, the big house, the hot wife, the whole nine. People who don’t win, they get cubicles, the hoopty ride, the not-so-hot wife.”

Tough look for my guy Tom.

Texas is 2-4 in its last 6, with the 2 wins coming on game-winning kicks.

Tom Herman should keep bashing his head on that helmet. Eventually something good is gonna happen.

Can fans enter the transfer portal?

Broke: Urban Meyer to USC.

Woke: Urban Meyer to Texas.

This is a Texas fan humbly accepting a low tier bowl game

this program is an absolute fucking dumpster fire fuck everything.

Hiring small time coaches leads to small time results

I keep thinking why head coaches like Strong and Herman who were very successful with lesser talents shit their pants at Texas with an abundance of talent. The answer maybe very simple. It takes different tactics to motivate 2-3 stars to play hard than it does to 4-5 stars. Herman tried the same approach that worked for him at Houston but it didn’t work here. When you bench a 5 star to teach him lesson, he reacts differently than a 2 star. It’s time to act like We are Texas and make a big time hire.

”It’S oNlY hErMaNs ThIrD yEaR aT tExAs,”

This team is a fucking embarrassment. Herman should be ashamed of himself

Tom Herman is here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and he still has a ton of bubble gum left.

All the outside fans coming in here to make “Texas is back” comments. Jokes on you, there’s no way you can hate us more than we hate us right now.

Good game between Baylor and that team that’s just like Baylor minus the whole winning thing.

Texas garbage time offense is the best in the nation.

Being a fan of a hated team is usually OK because usually hated teams are somewhat good.

Fucking hell this sucks.

Texas fighting tooth and nail to score their first TD of the day in garbage time to make the scoreboard look somewhat decent against Baylor. What a time to want to die.

Texas and Tennessee have the same record.

Herman’s lost the locker room.

We can’t fire Herman yet, but hopefully the entire fucking assistant staff is reshuffled. Jesus Christ, this has to be the worst P5 staff in the fucking country.

I think we should start a new conference with the likes of Mia, Michigan, Tennessee, USC, Nebraska, and a few more that we could probably add.

Kind of the has been conference. It would have a good fan base and be pretty well attended. Probably get a TV deal.

Think the Sr. Golf Tour. We’ve already made our money so the pressure is not as great and we could have a good time during the fall thinking about the good old days.

RAINY DYKES

You know you’re shits fucked up when Navy has more PASSING yards than you.

bit of an unusual matchup today

Some say SMU’s coach is still yelling to this day.

AAC commissioner: SMU should be ranked ahead of Boise and Appalachian State

Navy:

Let’s just get rid of the 3rd quarter. All in favor?

I think we need to ban rain all together.

We’re normally out of contention for the conference championship by mid October, so as much as this hurts… actually no. It still sucks ass

Just an absolute collapse by the team in the second half, I can’t believe it. Even if we beat Tulane we’ll probably end up in some garbage bowl game now. Great.

The Gansz trophy was fun while we had it, back to 1-11 we go

Reall awful game by our offense today. I don’t know what the hell we were doing but it fucked the defense and then was totally ineffective otherwise. How do you have much superior athletes and still blow that game after ND beat the shit out of Navy last week. Refs were atrocious all day too, but we should not have been in the position we were in. Totally on the O here

Fuck

Say what you will ab ou ut the refs and generous spots, but we had 2 weeks to prepare for this and we shat the bed

I’m in the process of filing a missing persons report for Shane.

SMU seriously needs to put up as many points as possible before weather goes from cold to miserable. Problem with becoming DFW’s team is you have almost no players that know what cold weather football is like.

It’s bad that SMU has the lead and I’ve already accepted the loss.

announcers amazed a triple option team leaded the nation in rushing

CBS plz

Fire Larry Scott?

Not cringing on special teams is a strange feeling. Ah yes now there it is. Just made me wait for it.

Gonna go snort my dad’s cocaine through a hundo from his wallet and forget the pain

ORE-GONE FROM PLAYOFF CONTENTION

The state of Arizona. Where Pac-12 playoff hopes go to die

Fuck the pac 12 we are all going down nerds

Oregon dropped eight spots in the AP poll for losing on the road to a .500 conference foe. That seems .. harsh.

For comparison, when Georgia lost at home to a 3-3 conference foe earlier this year it fell 7 spots.

Oregon: has a chance to make the playoffs

Pac-12: “Well this just won’t do”

I can’t decide if ESPN is sad that their 6v7 matchup is ruined or happy that they don’t have to pretend to care about the Pac 12 anymore lol

Oregon’s championship hopes getting dashed on a November night in Arizona? (Cries in 2007)

PAC 12:

Friendship ended with Oregon playoff hopes.

Utah playoff hopes are my best friend now.

Lol everyone complains about Bama having a shot at getting in and then does everything possible to make it a reality.

***Conference of Champions

Conference of Cannabis

Conference of Cannibals

game summary

Do you want Alabama in the playoff? This is how you get Alabama in the playoff.

God I hate playing in the state of Arizona

Imagine a Pac-12 team making the playoff when they play after dark. Lol

Pac12: ASU Please lose

Herm: YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME

State of Arizona: “Our teams are mediocre, let’s ruin some hopes of the conference”

They’re all Firm for Hirm but in accordance with No Nut November we Ducks have blue Cristoballs
