5-at-10: College football, NFL madness, Finley over/under and inexact experts

Here's hoping you enjoyed the weekend as much as the 5-at-10 clan did. Good times.

From the "Talks too much" studios, buckle up buttercup.

College football rewind

And welcome back from the Jomo Weekend. Yes, 5-at-10 regular Jomo11, he of the consistent orange jabs and the coach-speak undersell of the his UTC Mocs, had about as good a weekend football-wise as anyone could possibly expect. Here's hoping he bought a lottery ticket, too.

Let's rewind the college football weekend, and do it with five story lines that are only climbing in interest:

* Dobbs' debut: Tennessee went to Missouri and got its clock cleaned. (Side question: How great and under-used is that expression, "got their clock cleaned," all things considering? It started in the 1800s and took off when Twain used a variation of it "Roughing It" in the 1870s. And gang, know this, if it's good enough for Twain — or Lewis Grizzard — then it's good enough for us. That dog'll bite you.) As for the final outcome of the Vols 31-3 drubbing at Missouri, well, the score was not pretty. The game was not pretty. That said, Dobbs was fine in his debut. He was not overwhelmed by the moment and he threw the ball well. Some dropped passes and a dump truck load of penalties — as many as six procedure penalties from a senior-laden offensive line? — sidetracked the offense way more than anything Dobbs did or did not do. And we'll give the UT play-calling somewhat of a pass, considering Dobbs appears to be the only healthy QB in the program this side of Condredge Holloway, but in a normal situation with a QB as athletic as Josh Dobbs, 42 passes and seven runs is not a good mix. Let's just say that those who played the Tigers — both the Missouri and the Auburn versions — in their entertainment wagering fared nicely. (Side note: The up-and-down status of the Fab 4 picks continued with a 2-3 week, that included two losses before we even got to Saturday.)

* BCS chaos: The BCS experts... wait one second. If you are an expert in an inexact science, are you an inexact expert? What happened to the experts when they thought, nay, they knew the Earth was flat. Those experts then did what exactly when the whole around-the-world thing happened? Did they have like online courses then and maybe they could wait tables at Ye Ole Tavern while they got a second degree? Where were we?

Oh yes, the BCS. OK, FSU pasted Miami — the second time the Seminoles have drubbed a top-10 foe — and passed Oregon for the No. 2 spot in the BCS. Oregon will get its national spotlight game Thursday night when the Ducks face Stanford. The math is pretty simple according the BCS bozos — Oregon almost assuredly will pass FSU for the No. 2 spot with a win over The Cardinal. Also left on the outside looking in will be THE Ohio State and even Baylor, regardless if either of those teams runs the table. Sure, there are a lot of folks saying, "We need a playoff," and that appears to be more true now than ever. (Well, other than 2004, which we can all agree was a travesty.) Still, if the expected happens, you could have as many as five unbeaten teams from major conferences standing there — never mind BCS busters from Fresno State and Northern Illinois — a situation that a four-team playoff does not address. So it goes.

Tell us more about this world being flat thing, Tom Cruise.

* Alabama-LSU: What a monster week, huh? Oregon-Stanford on Thursday night. Baylor-Oklahoma on Thursday night. Alabama-LSU on Saturday night. Think many FSU fans are buying LSU gear this weekend? As of right now, the Tide are an 11-point favorite over LSU. It's the 51st consecutive game that Alabama has been favored (Alabama has been on an average a three-TD favorite over that span) and it's the biggest spread for the Tide over LSU since 1999. The last time Alabama was not favored was the 2009 SEC championship against Florida, way back when people thought Tim Tebow was a good quarterback. And that the Earth was flat.

* Mocs mania: We discussed it some last week, about how big this moment was and could be for the UTC Fighting Huesmans. And they delivered. They delivered on the field and within their helmets. They handled the adversity and the situation. The continue to hurdle injuries like a freak combination of Edwin Moses and Hawkeye Pierce. (We prefer Hawkeye Moses, thank you.) And now, the Mocs, winners of five in a row for the first time since they thought the world was, we don't know, flat, control their fate. Think about that. The Mocs control their fate. When we got to Chattanooga a little more than a decade ago, the Mocs had a tough time controlling their tempers. Now, they have the SoCon title in the mix and the light at the end of the tunnel is not a train. Good times.

* And while we're on the Mocs, we asked on The Twitter on Saturday, and we'll put this out there for you UTC folks, to finish this sentence: "This is the biggest Mocs win since..." Some folks said biggest ever, which we can see an argument for. Some said biggest since last week, which seems a little understated and downplayed in our view. The stepping-stone affect is more of a forward play than a backward one. Yes, the win at Boone raises the stakes for Saturday against Wofford, but beating App State at App State can't be dismissed or downplayed for a UTC program that is trying to take the steps to move from consistently competitive to supremely and competitively consistent.

NFL unknown

The NFL is on its ear. Period. It's complete hysteria. Consider the following and know that all of this happened on a week that exactly one game feature each team with a winning record — and that game is tonight.

— The Houston Texans were well on their way to a season-changing win over Indy on Sunday night. Then coach Gary Kubiak collapsed on the sideline right before halftime and the Colts rallied by the emotional and puzzled Texans, turning a 21-3 halftime Houston lead into a 27-24 Colts win. This came days after news broke that Denver coach John Fox will miss the next several weeks because of heart surgery after collapsing last week at a North Carolina golf course.

— The biggest name this weekend likely was Incognito. Yes, Richie Incognito, the suspended Miami offensive line who appears to be the center of a locker room bullying case that has the Dolphins looking to the NFL to investigate. This has escalated since Jonathan Martin left the team last month, and reports came out this weekend that Martin gave Incognito $15K to help fund a Vegas trip. And if an NFL team is looking for the NFL to intervene after Spygate and Bountygate and Heaven-knows-which-other-gate, well, there is troubling brewing.

— Raise you hand if you had Nick Foles tying the NFL record for most TD passes in a single game with seven against Oakland on Sunday.

— OK, no one had Nick Foles. But that leads us to this question: What is the biggest surprise — Foles getting his name in the record book next to ; the Kansas Chiefs being 9-0, and winning Sunday without an offensive touchdown; or the Steelers being historically bad? (The 55 points allowed to the Patriots on Sunday were the most ever allowed by a Pittsburgh defense. Ouch-standing.)

— And speaking of surprises, how about the Atlanta Falcons now being in position to have a top-five pick in one of the deepest NFL drafts in recent memory. While the Jags, the Bucs and the Vikings are ahead in the "Terrible for Teddy" sweepstakes and each one of those teams has to have a QB, the Falcons could have a top-five pick with dominating defensive perimeter players Jadeveon Clowney or Anthony Barr on the board. Clowning around for Clowney could take on.

The "drive fast, turn left" crew took to Texas this weekend. As the Chase heads to the homestretch, the man that everyone has to beat is looking too tough again.

Jimmie Johnson won at Texas on Sunday, taking a seven-point lead in the standings. We are living through a historic and sport-changing performance by Johnson, who is on the verge of winning his sixth points title since 2006.

Gang, the record is seven titles, shared by The King and The Intimidator. And Johnson, who needs a nickname with 'The' in front of it desperately, could very well get there as soon as next year.

Maybe this is a true testament of our far NASCAR has drifted off the radar in the last five-to-eight years. Jimmie Johnson can make a hard claim to be on the Rushmore of Active athletes with a legit chance to be mentioned as the best ever with a couple of quarterbacks, Tiger, LeBron and a sprinter or two in today's sports.

And other than having the second-best unibrow in sports today, Johnson is what? A mid-level star by comparison? He hardly moves the needle in the grand landscape and is certainly behind Dale Jr., and likely behind Tony Stewart and even Jeff Gordon in his own sport.

Dude just wins baby. Somewhere Al Davis smiles, remembering his catch phrase, and knowing two things: He was right about Lane Kiffin and those knuckleheads that thought the world was flat were the Scientologists of their day.


This and that

— Reggie Jackson is ticked that people are calling David Ortiz Mr. October. Uh, sorry Reggie. Dude has been better in the playoffs than you. But if we must change it, maybe Ortiz could be October Knight or King October. Does that work for you, mister?

— The Chinese Fire Drill instructors who advised the TSSAA on its playoff structures should be told that the world is no longer flat. Flat heads.

— If the early line stands and Tennessee is only getting seven from Auburn, then you have our permission to risk more than entertainment. Granted you'd have to fly to Vegas since that is the only way in this country to make more than a gentleman's wager.


Today's question(s)

Gang we have a ton of things to discuss. A ton.

We could have asked this in the college football section, but it needs to be mentioned some where, but where would Georgia be if Todd Gurley had not gotten hurt? Dude is such a difference maker.

We will ask this all week, because we are extremely interested in your view. In fact we will ask variations of this a couple of times this week in an effort to explore the question. But we'll start with the wide-sweeping one: Over/under at Finley on Saturday for the biggest game for UTC since The Cosby Show was on TV? If we posted it at 12,000 would you take the over or the under?

What else you got? Who won the weekend.

BE AT FINLEY this Saturday. Turn off the tv, get off the couch, and go see football in person. I know its an alien concept, actually going to a game in person, that is not in Knoxville, but do it. Support your hometown team. It is Military Appreciation day, all active military, Veterans, and their families get in free. Also, fire, police or emergency personnel can get a free ticket with a valid ID at Finley Stadium on game day.

Go by JoMo11's tailgate before the game and ask for a mojito, its in the southwest corner of the north parking lot, tell them I sent you! Go Mocs!

Jay- interesting that of the Mocs 5 TD vs. Appy 3 were by freshman and 1 by a sophmore . . .we constantly hear the media say lets give this team or that team a pass because they are young, yet so many college teams are winning WITH freshman . . .

that brings us to UTK, Dobbs looked decent, but he doesnt seem to have that "IT" factor that some freshman at other schools seem to have. . .if He is the future the "bricks" look a little shaky

Moc fans will be at the Wofford game in force, dont know if the CITY of Chattanooga comes, might more be a tale of rather CHATTANOOGA is a sports town or not, I know being a sports page you might want to ignore that but it is kind of a reflection on what the city is or isnt. .

Are the Falcons THE most disappointing NFL team this year or The Ravens or Giants ?

Weeds wrote and interesting column this morning encouraging a "Fill Finley" campaign. While I don't have the alumni boosting power of T. Boone (JR) Pickens does with Okie State, I did leave a pleasant message on sports marketing director Jay Blackman's answering machine that they need to do SOME type of marketing campaign for this.

And naturally, I will call SportTalk this afternoon when I get home.

As far as greatest game since...nothing is going to take the place of Mocs over Vols 14-7 in 1958. The Hall of Fame Room on the fourth floor of McKenzie Arena literally has a large chunk of wall space dedicated to just that one game. The only way that will replace the top spot is if Mocs do it again next year. However, the win at Appy against Boone is definitely a top five game. Probably a close second, (pre-Mocs fan years for me) was when T.O. still wore the blue and gold and they upsetted then SoCon and top-ranked Marshall at Chamberlein. The Appy win can easily overshadow the Marshal win as now we are actually playing for a championship. So right now, we need the community to fill that place like Tennessee State in 1997.

I'm campaigning for 16,000+, there's nothing else going on (except Anime Blast at the Chattanooga Convention Center which obviously is not the audience we're going for), Alabama doesn't play until 8PM, Vols are toast, we're playing for a championship. End of story.

First, big win for the Mocs on Saturday. Glad to see they could do what Southern could not. And then Southern couldn't beat a woeful Furman team at home Saturday. Can't wait for this Southern season to end.

And then Samford up and loses. Does that open the door a little bit more for the Mocs?

If beating South Carolina is a signature win for the Vols, is the Missouri defeat a signature loss? Still not sold on the Butch Train.

Someone tell Reggie Jackson to go buy another classic car. Has he seen what Big Papi has done since, say, I don't know, the 2004 ALCS in the playoffs?

5, has a NASCAR season ever gone more unnoticed? It's as if they're racing in a vacuum or next to the proverbial falling tree in a lonely forest.

Who won the weekend? Boston. For some unknown reason, without the alarm being set and not being jostled by outside forces, something told me to get up at about 9:30 Saturday morning after a long Friday night. I turned on the television and watched the duck boat parade. That's what told me to wake up. And then I couldn't get back to sleep and couldn't care less that I couldn't. Even GameDay couldn't put me out.

Did not see 55 from TB12 and company coming, either. Wow.

From friend of the show StuckinKent —

I thought Dobbs looked very good as a true freshman starting his first game. They moved the ball relatively well against Missouri, but could not finish drives. The defense was atrocious. It was as bad as when SAL was there. Absolutely atrocious.

Should be a huge weekend for the Mocs this Saturday- a chance to do something really special. Should be a great weekend.

So now we're Mark Twain?

Go Moccasins!

I want to say there's no crying in football, but I expect there is merit in Mr. Martin's complaint.

I agree that Dobbs was fine, and I liked Patrick's Bits and Pieces today, but I have to pick Palardy for player of the game over Dobbs. In fact, he's my POY. The Mizzou setback would've been uglier with an ordinary kicker. And I like that Downtown complimented the Mizzou paint job. UT's checkerboarded endzone is a longstanding tradition, but it's boring next to the MIZZOU diamonds. Recruiting advantage?

Stuckey--Give the Missouri offense some credit. Speed kills. You can't win the Kentucky Derby with a mule.

I'm glad Pasquali discussed the Gawga lateral, but he didn't say if he agreed with the call. It looked like a forward pass to me, but by so few centimeters that I can't argue with the call. Too many moving parts.

Can UK give the Columbia Tigers a better game than UT did? I think we'll get across the goal line at least once. But I hope Franklin's not at full speed yet.

What odds would you give on The Vols winning two more to go bowling?

[What is the biggest surprise — Foles getting his name in the record book next to ; the Kansas Chiefs being 9-0, and winning Sunday without an offensive touchdown; or the Steelers being historically bad?]

Foles gets the edge over the Chiefs.

[Over/under at Finley on Saturday for the biggest game for UTC since The Cosby Show was on TV? If we posted it at 12,000 would you take the over or the under?]

Over 12k but under 13k. Fair or unfair, the UT-Auburn game will be too appealing for some to leave their couch. And since the Mocs can be seen on ESPN3, that's yet another incentive for the fringe fans to stay home. And the Mocs have had multiple "biggest games since The Cosby Show" since Huesman has been there. The problem is that we're ofer in those games (unless you count the win from this past Saturday).


Agreed that the win over TN is the biggest in Mocs' history. And I wouldn't replace that one unless/until we win an FCS title. Good call on the Marshall game too. All that said though, I think the W from this past Saturday is a bit overblown. Yes, we ended the 30-year drought of winning in Boone, but this was the worst App team that Huesman has faced, they were 2-6, and they're not even competing for a SoCon title. Because I expected us to win this game, I would have been more disappointed with a loss than I am excited about the win. These next 2 games are a much bigger deal to me because they are the 2 best conference opponents that we'll have faced all season. And they both still have a shot (with us) at winning the conference.

About what time will you be calling into Sport Talk today? I'll be sure to tune in.

November 4, 2013 at 12:13 p.m.
MocTastic said...

With both Appy and Ga Southern being 2-4 in SoCon play I think I can attribute some of that to being there is nothing to play for. Obviously these are not two of their better teams in recent history, but they have better talent than being 2-4 for both of them. Take away that carrot at the end of the string for some teams and they don't play as hard.

Maymon gives us all our parts that we need," Coach Cuonzo says, according to Weeds.

Well, except for a strong point guard.

But I do appreciate Mark's tribute to the fun to watch Bruise Brothers.

November 4, 2013 at 12:18 p.m.
JonathanMCook said...


Agreed that Appy is definiately not the Appy of the Jerry-era. But I'll still consider it a hard fought win on the account it's almost anybody's ballgame. (The fact Citadel beat Samford kinda gives that vibe).

I officially clock out of work at 3:00 PM Dallas time which is 4:00 PM Chat-town time. I live approximately 10 minutes from work but with afternoon traffic, it's an easy 15-20 minutes to the apartment. That said, I would say tune in between 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM Chat-town time. I won't be using any "handles" so if Quake says "Jonathan, calling from Dallas, what's up bro?" and you hear a light, twangy voice, that will be me. ^^()

Everyone else-

Want to give a nice "type-out" to Jay Blackman, the Sports Marketing Director at UTC, I didn't leave a return number but apparently he pulled it up out of their system. He called me back saying how appreciative he was of the message and apparently has started to get the ball rolling regarding trying to fill Finley. I'm not even a high-end alumni and he still took the time to call back. Classy!

BIspy4 said...

MocTastic, I don't think the 2-4 for the Eagles is a result of nothing to play for. There was a lot of blather before the season about finishing 8-0 and leaving the WWE for the WCW with the belt.

But this wasn't Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels conspiring to job Bret Hart in Montreal. Nope. It was a porous defense (see Samford and Wofford and App State games) and a rash of injuries (no Swope, a limited McKinnon and some key linemen out). But the defense has stayed relatively healthy. They've also been relatively awful.

Now there is nothing to play for. Maybe that can explain, in part, the Furman loss. But at Southern, you can't lose to Furman, especially a 3-5 Furman, ever. Ever. You don't go against the family, and you don't lose to Furman. Ever. I don't know what's more embarrassing, losing to a bad Furman team or having only 12,220 (announced) show up for the final home game with the most bitter rival in GSU history.

Join the Journey! (That's the idiotic catchphrase for this ill-conceived and poorly-considered move to the Sun Belt from the fraudulent administration).

November 4, 2013 at 1:16 p.m.
MocTastic said...

Bispy, so you are a GSU fan but not a fan of the move to the Sunbelt? As JoMo11 says, its like GSU and Appy are going into the witness protection conference of I-A football, the Sunbelt. We will know GSU is still playing football, but we will never hear from them or know when or where they are playing again. The Championships will be a distant memory in the near future. Adios, may your passage to the nether worlds be a good one.

November 4, 2013 at 1:25 p.m.
Stewwie said...


Good point. I think that's part of it, but their teams/records are still bad this season regardless of whether it's due to underachieving or having a legit down-year.


No question it was a hard-fought win. There are a bunch of winners on this year's team. But I have a hard time saying it's in the top 5 or 10 of our biggest wins when it was against an unranked team that was 2-6.

Note to Jay Blackman: Now would be a great time for a white-out or blue-out.

November 4, 2013 at 1:38 p.m.
jgreeson said...

Gang —

Excellent stuff today as always.

To the Mocs fans among us, congrats. That is a big money win, no matter App State's record, and especially when UTC's injuries are factored in.

To the drum beating about marketing, and we'll talk more about this later this week, we have always heard that winning would cure UTC's attendance ailments. Well, the Mocs are winning, how many will show.

To Jomo's allegation that maybe Chattanooga is not a 'sports town.' Well, compared to what? Compared to St. Louis, no. What about Atlanta, which can't sell out playoff games and is most loyal to a college team 100 miles from the city — sound familiar?

To Spy's use of a Corleone phrase, you never take sides against the family, Fredo. Oh, and Fredo, don't go fishing with Michael's bodyguard.

And yes, this is the most quiet NASCAR season ever.

More to come — messed around and had a lot to do today.

MocTastic, that Jomo11 line about the SunBelt being the witness protection program of FBS is my line. Used last week. JMC liked it, too.

Southern can compete between the lines in the Sun Belt. That's not the issue. But this whole "greater exposure" line is an outright myth. The local media won't even be going on the road to these Sun Belt games. They don't have the money. Don Heath, one of the most tenured and respected guys in the media business, didn't even go to Southern at App this year. You think the just getting out of bankruptcy protection Morris News conglomerate is going to fork over the dough to send him to Monroe, La., (5 may recall the conversations with a stewardess on the worst places Delta goes to) and San Marcos, Tex., not to mention Moscow, Idaho and wherever New Mexico State is. (Alamogordo? Roswell? Las Cruces?)

And the larger issue is the money just isn't there. There is no corporate base to tap into for sponsorships. The vast majority of Southern's alumni are teachers. And it's going to be more expensive to be in the Sun Belt. It's a financial boondoggle.

Sweet bucketsa,

We've had a boondoggle sighting. And it's only Monday.

Another chapter of the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party is in the books. That means Auburn and Tech are right around the corner and yet another regular season is winding down. Time gets away quick these days. As for the Florida game...Sometimes a perfect game plan is drawn up and executed masterfully by the players on the field. Other times you stumble bass-ackwards and manage to fall in such a way that you pull a victory in spite of yourself. The first half was a delight to watch. The second half was a disaster but not fatal. Thank you Todd Gurley.

I missed it, but apparently Rece Davis of ESPN scolded both Georgia and Florida for conduct unbecoming during Saturday's game. I knew that name sounded familiar and after a quick Google search I said to myself: Oh, that guy. I have never given him much thought before, no reason to start now. Rece must watch rivalry games with that snooty old lady from the Three Stooges shorts. "Why I never!" Now if someone will just hit Rece in the face with a pie, the circle will be complete.

Spy mentioned the Pats and "TB12." I saw a little bit of the Patriots-Steelers game yesterday and when Tom Brady hit Danny Amendola for a touchdown, the announcers said Amendola was the 50th different Patriot player Brady has connected with for a TD pass. I don't have anything to add, I just thought that was a really impressive statistic.

Well, I gotta run. Some chugnut on ESPN is reporting that Todd Gurley switched lanes in traffic without giving a turn signal. Oh the humanity!

"MocTastic, that Jomo11 line about the SunBelt being the witness protection program of FBS is my line. Used last week. JMC liked it, too."

That I did. In fact, when I changed out of my blue and gold and into my orange and white to watch the Mizzou game in the den/living room/guest room/library (I live in a one bed-room), I did what Spy stated and checked the scorebar since the game was on ESPN. I saw Chattanooga/Appy State and other SoCon games + other FCS schools scroll across numerous times. Sunbelt schools, not so much.

And yes, Statesboro is not going to turn into Tuscaloosa overnight nor are there any major player alumni (not counting whats-his-face who plays for the Dallas Cowboys; yes, I should know this but I don't at the moment).

November 4, 2013 at 3:16 p.m.
BIspy4 said...

JMC (if you move fast, you might be Run JMC. But I digress), that would be JJ Wilcox, a great kid and all around great player at GSU. Great slotback, great blocker, runner and receiver and went to play defensive back his senior season because the coaches needed him there and the rest of the secondary ... wasn't very good.

Thanks for pointing out the FCS scores on the scroll and the continued absence of Sun Belt scores on the crawl. Exposure. Yup.

5, I dealt with gubernatorial two weeks ago. When I had to go talk to the governor. So there.

I guess I'm a little worked up over losing to Furman (insert mumbled expletive here) and the whole move to FBS and the Sun Belt. But I guess I have a duck boat parade to keep watching to ease my pain. And Tom Brady torched Pittsburgh. So that was fun.
