NSFW: It’s Meltdown Time! Week 5

The Big Ten joins the party this weekend.

The Big Ten joined the college football party this week, and today they make their first appearances in Meltdown Time. First off we have a Penn State fanbase that had thoroughly looked past Indiana in anticipation of next week’s tilt with Ohio State. The Nittany Lions led by one point late, and had just grabbed a turnover deep in Indiana territory. All they needed to do was run the clock. Instead, Indiana correctly parted like the Red Sea and intentionally conceded a touchdown. With a lead, Penn State RB Devyn Ford should have intentionally gone down at the one yard line, which would have resulted in a first down with only 1:42 to play. Alas, he did not. Penn State went up by 8 points, Indiana came back and tied the game, then won in OT when a diving Indiana QB Michael Penix just barely penetrated the end zone to convert a two point conversion. Coach James Franklin is getting some heat for this one, and QB Sean Clifford doesn’t seem all that popular.

We also have a Michigan State fanbase that saw its Spartans turn the ball over seven times and get whipped by Rutgers, who had lost 21 consecutive conference games. Mel Tucker’s honeymoon is just about up in East Lansing.

Of course, Erik already gave you a little early taste of Tennessee meltdown. Check that one out if you haven’t already.

As always, the language in this post is horrible. If you are easily offended, point your browser elsewhere. You have been warned. The rest of you, enjoy.

This is why you schedule cupcakes at the beginning of the season

Fuck their kicker

Quick question

When y’all gonna admit Clifford sucks?

Ohio State 142, Penn State -3

No reason to watch next week, unless you’re a masochist.

Penix has played really soft today.

I just had Sugar Bowl flashback...

Coaching

F-

Jesus Christ! WTF.

Dumb ass call in a dumbass series in a dumb ass game by a dumbass coach

Is joe paterno calling the plays today????

Run it up the gut, Run it up the gut, Run it up the gut, Run it up the gut

Excellent play calls Ciarocca

Top 10 in the country ???

You poor souls.

Who is Clifford throwing to?

Is there a pretty girl in the stands? Is he distracted by a cardboard cutout?

I love the guy but James Franklin is one of the worst late game coaches in college football

Worst game decision coach in America.

Hands down. Stupid fucker. Take a knee!!!

ALL WE HAD TO DO WAS GO TO A VICTORY FORMATION YOU FUCKING IDIOT

LMFAO this is pure comedy gold!

The James Franklin Klown Krew Comedy Hour. Better action than the 3 Stooges.

Fucking everyone in the box

And they let him through.

Hahahahaha. 2020, I will look back on you one day and appreciate you.

I fucking hate this team so much

Our defense couldn’t stop a midget football league team on that last drive

I have been waiting for 10 months for this shitshow?

win or lose

we still drink bleach.

There goes our chance at a CFP spot. Fuck Franklin and his stupid bald ass

Fucking refs, fucking Penn State FUCK

Franklin can fuck off. He’s a piece of shit coach

Fuck 2020! Seriously. Fuck 2020

Guy was out. Stupid fucking zone defense. And guess what? Safety play FUCKING again costs the game!!!!!!

How does that stupid asshole keep his job?

Can’t wait for the excuses!!! Woohoo!

These dumb asses have shown year after year they can’t close a fucking game. Over and over and over and over again

Least we won’t need to hear a week of PSU/OSU hype

Considering most now think we’ll probably lose 52-10.

I’m absolutely mind-fucked at what Jay Johnson & Mel Tucker did that last series

4 runs when you are gouging Rutgers w/ the pass is dumb.

Not kicking the FG in that position was simply, bluntly IDIOTIC.

At least this long-ass season is going to be short

Is this worse than JLS bad? This feels like JLS bad, but even more pathetic

Yep, we just got beat by Rutgers. It can’t get any worse than this, can it?

Oh well, we’ll be back again next week full of hope.

I will say if we don’t have 6 turnovers every week

We have a chance to win

This is disgraceful...

Fire Tucker…

Fucking kill me

All uphill from here

MSU: “I hope we see a lot less punting this year!”

The monkey’s paw curls

Should’ve kept the season canceled tbh

I thought Plaxico Burress graduated years ago. Yet this team is still shooting themselves in the foot

I never thought I’d be in such euphoria to see us score a TD vs Rutgers

Fun fact. We still haven’t punted

Welcome back to the pre Dantonio era
