BCS National Championship Live-Blog: Florida/OSU- 1st Quarter

Monday, January 08, 2007

Here we go.......Buckeyes ball to start it.

OH MY GOD! Ted Ginn Jr. on the return to start the game.....strike up the The Best Damn Band in the Land.

7-0 OSU....

WOW! 16 seconds in. That's Goldberg territory there.


Well then. Urban Meyer is a special teams guy....he actually has the special teamers get in line first for dinner.

Let's see what Florida can do.......Wow. Another great return and a facemask to boot. 15 yards.

Florida opens with a quick hitter to Harvin. Two For the Money is on HBO for those gamblers in the crowd. Charles Davis likes to yell a lot. Third and short for Florida.

"And it's short of the first down. It depends on the spot."- TB, is it short or is it close Tom with an H?

Fat Actual Tebow is in.....and picks up a good bit of yardage as Leak runs out wide. Interesting play Urban.....very Boise State of you.

Why does Barry Alvarez yell all the time too?

Leak to ummm I don't know because you didn't tell me Thom! (Actually I know it's Baker because I'm rainman with jersey numbers, but come on)

7-7 Folks.....we got a game. So much for setting the O/U at 46.


"Stolen Boy."- That weird chick with the googly eyes from Mean Girls.

Well that was quick wasn't it? Let's slow this down.....I can't type that fast.

Signal to Noise said... All of Gator Nation is engorged with its collective Tebowner.

Only an eight yard return on this kick and FOX starts the "Commercial every three seconds" thing....

Troy Smith throwing on first down and it's incomplete to Teddy KGinnB. Smith runs on second and gets zippy. "LET'S WATCH AS WE GO THROUGH THE GAME"- Barry Alvarez, yelling like Stephen A. Smith. And Smith is sacked after waiting too long to get rid of the ball. OSU punts.....Florida gets the ball at the 50. Wait, a personal foul on OSU for a late hit.....ball at the 35. And that was just dirty....and stupid.

There's that damn mirrors girl again. I hate her.....I don't care if she's 6. "Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?"

FOX again with a mess up as TB starts talking before they come back from the commercial.

Whoever that lineman was from Florida he drove the DB back about 15 yards. Florida is hyped. Another 3rd and short for Florida. Guaranteed pass. And on que Leak throws for a first down inside the ten.

Tebow in. Ball comes loose....looks like he was down. "Ruled down"- Jack Foley the ref.

Option play to the receiver Harvin and the Gators score again. Good time to bring up a stat......the underdogs have covered in 6 of the last 8 Championship games.

There will be a review and he'll be down at about the one and a half.

Jay said...BTW, do you think they could put USC's Megan in a Florida cheerleader uniform and send her out there for a little booty flash to liven things up?

My sitemeter would like her to show up.

On review the TD is good. Not a chance he was in.

14-7 Florida.

pedro said... does charles davis know of any play other than a shot "downtown" it's all he ever called for in the BSU-Ou game too.

Get used to it Pedro.....you should hear TB do baseball.

Brady Quinn is the All-American player of the year......apparently they didn't watch the Sugar Bowl.

Ginn with another good return. Charles Davis is supposed to be a color guy right? He talks more than TB. I don't like him.....but that's just me. Smith throws a Pennington like lateral to the freshman receiver Hartline.....careful Troy.....danger.

OSU is running the ball now, and they pick up a first down on 3rd and short. Ted Ginn is off to the locker room with an ankle right as Troy Smith is sacked for a huge loss. Why do you stop running the ball there. Harvey is hurt for the Gators after the sack....not good for the Gators at all.

More audio problems for FOX....this time for the Ref. 2nd and 25 for the Buckeyes....they have 0 yards of total offense. Pittman picks up a few....third and long for OSU. The Gators line is just nasty quick. Troy can't out run these guys. Troy gets blasted and Florida picks off the pass on a sliding grab at their own 35. That's basically like a crappy punt.

It is loud as hell there.......about 70-30 Ohio State is the word from my embedded AA operative. But he's probably drunk as hell, so I would take that with a grain of salt. Ohio State's defense looks scattered. Ingram is there for the grab.

Wide f'ing open are the Gators receivers. Damn this first quarter went quick....1 minute to go with the Gators driving.

The Gators are Everywhere. A fake option to a reverse for Caldwell. Somewhere Reche is smiling. "Cloudy mind equals slow feet"- CD, thanks Charles. I sit up in my seat everytime Tebow comes in......that kid is going to be special.

SEE YOU IN THE NEW THREAD!

Where is that Southern Speed(tm)? Weird kickoff coverage formation by Florida, they were all bunched up in the middle/near side of the field. It would seem that 10-11 guys converging from various angles would be more effective, but what do I know?

Seriously, that OSU kicker should be banned for life. That was the most egregious face mask I can remember. But hey, whatever, it's the championship game and he saved a touchdown.

"It looks like he was short."
"He got a really good spot."

That's because Baker's feet were across the marker, dumbasses.

Is it really necessary to go to a commercial so often??

And there's the response from Florida. One thing that NOBODY is talking about -- Ohio State played exactly one good offense this year and gave up 39 points. Remember, Texas was still breaking in Colt McCoy in early September. Ohio State didn't play another team with even a decent offense.

Jan 8, 2007, 8:50:00 PM  

Hey Tressel, whatever happened to that discipline? Two personal fouls on two consecutive kick plays.

RUTS, Michigan doesn't count as a good offense (they crapped the bed against the Trojans, true, but still?)

They need to tell that camera operator to NEVER get that close to that cheerleader again.

BTW, do you think they could put USC's Megan in a Florida cheerleader uniform and send her out there for a little booty flash to liven things up?

And everybody gets it wrong!

I love the one guy who said he was down at the "2 or 3 yard line" .... niiiiiiiice call dude.

TB is a very close second to Joe Buck on my reasons of why I hate Fox Sports.

I declare instant death on the next person to give Brady Quinn the oral hummer. Cingular Player of the Year, my ass.

The USC Song Girls should be made to perform at all bowl games whether the Trojans are in them or not.

My girlfriend also loves the robots. Since she really just started watching football this year, she doesn't realize that they've been terrorizing my television for roughly ten years.

Florida might want to think about pooch kickoffs. Kicking to Gonzalez isn't much different than kicking it to Ginn, Jr.

Jan 8, 2007, 9:06:00 PM  

what was this imaginary third bowl game in glendale that our esteemed announcers are talking about?

pedro said...
Jan 8, 2007, 9:08:00 PM  

Ooooh, Ginn's hurt. Smith's sacked. Florida's out of their minds right now.

I don't see how Harvey's injury could possibly be serious. He just landed on Smith's feet.

Jan 8, 2007, 9:08:00 PM  

do we really need a camera shot of the cameras? doesn't that break the fourth wall?

STN: Michigan had a really good offense, they just shit the bed against USC.

Florida is playing about four notches above OSU right now. Outside of the kickoff return, the Buckeyes have done nothing.

Jan 8, 2007, 9:13:00 PM  

AA- probably a good thing we aren't watching this game together....

pedro - Glendale also had the Insight Bowl.

I didn't realize it either until I read something about it and had to look it up.

Jan 8, 2007, 9:13:00 PM  

RUTS - I knew I thought Michigan's offense was good while watching them this year -- thanks for confirmation (my post suffered from bad punctuation)
