 EVANSTON, IL- SEPTEMBER 08: Mark Gilbert #28 of the Duke Blue Devils intercepts a pass against the Northwestern Wildcats during the first half on September 8, 2018 at Ryan Field in Evanston, Illinois. | Photo by David Banks/ A sad ending to a promising Duke career This is a bit sad but it also makes perfect sense: Duke cornerback Mark Gilbert will give up the rest of his season and get ready for the 2021 NFL draft. Gilbert, who made an epic comeback only to have to stop after two games to have foot surgery, won’t be back this season for Duke so there’s really no reason not to...

Post-game thoughts — Texas 27, Baylor 16

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports For the first time this season, Texas was in control of a conference game. Facing a Baylor Bears team that has been decimated by COVID-19 and several key injuries, the Texas Longhorns did what they needed to do to get back in the win column and took care of business at home today. OFFENSE Similar to each of the previous two games, the offense got off to a snail-paced start. At first, it was tough sledding on the ground and through the air. Texas had 25 total yards in the first quarter after two weeks of preparation against a depleted team. But thanks to...

Alabama vs Tennessee Football: Second Half Open Thread

Photo by UA Athletics/Collegiate Images/ 28-10 at the half in a weird game The big news in this game was Jaylen Waddle twisting his ankle on the opening kick off and immediately getting carted to the locker room. He’s since been shipped off to the hospital, and it sounds like his season is over. Alabama’s offense has been great yet again, particularly on the ground. Najee Harris and Brian Robinson have been pretty much unstoppable, while John Metchie has been catching deep shots in double coverage all game long. Even Waddle’s replacement, Slade Bolden, has over 80 yards in his...

Third Saturday Victory Thread — Alabama destroys Tennessee, but leaves Knoxville as a diminished team

An ass-kicking of the Vols using a vanilla scheme of about a dozen plays on both sides of the ledger should always be reason to celebrate. But, there’s a bad taste from this one that is going to linger...and perhaps come back to haunt the Tide, as for yet another season, Alabama has lost its single best player and generational talent. We’re not going to rehash the Jaylen Waddle injury. It’s safe to say that his loss diminishes this offense in ways that are obvious (Bolden’s drop in the end zone on a...
