NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Best and Worst of 2010 College Football Season
December 12, 2010, 11:24 AM
The regular season is over. The far too extended bowl season is upon us. What is the best and worst that you have seen this season.

Best: Auburn's ability to escape any deficit.
Worst: Auburn's inability to escape the Cam Newton situation.

I also add among the worst of this season night games in Madison, but I may be a little bias.

Hm. Good thinking here. I wish I watched enough this season to opine..... Thanks, grad school.

The best then, would be 37-7 to finish the regular season!!!!!!

Worst off the field I would agree on the Cam Newton Situation.
Worst On the field 13 men on the field on a critical play.

Best on the field: coaches seeming to have more guts to take risks at big moments in game. (Thanks Mr. Dantonio)

Best on field = 4th and 11 against Iowa, #2 delivered a season saver.
Best off Field = Columbus night life after the Miami game!

Worst on Field = A. Opening Kick in Madison, never really recovered from that. B. Seemingly innocent scramble against Illinois, that messed up #2 the rest of the season.

Worst off Field = Heisman hopeful, suspended for beating is girl, not cool not cool....

Cheapest shot: AU late hit on the Clemson QB in one of the first games of the season
Coolest play: MSU fake FG against ND
2nd Coolest play: Navy rip and strip on Army QB leading to a 98 yard fumble TD
Saddest play: 2 missed FG's by BSU late
Strangest play: Both the TENN and LSU coaching staffs' inability to count to 11 for the last play in that game

From tOSU fan's seat...

BEST: watching Dane Sanzenbacher, one of the smaller players in major college football, fearlessly make catch after catch after catch, pay the price, then get right back up for the next play.

WORST: allowing Terelle Pryor to continue tweeting.

If only we could shift some of Dane's will and mental toughness into Terelle...

Thanks, was going to use the Missori last minute TD against SDSU as the saddest play but figured most folks would not remember it.

One more:
Best announcing job: when the ESPN guys were mocking the Arizona and ASU punters after a series of craptacular special teams plays.... Its rare when you see the dudes in the both all honestly cracking up.

The Best: Kyle Brotzman's right foot. That got rid of the Boise problem.
The Worst: The NCAA's tortured reconciliation of the $cam Newton situation. U$C does in fact have a legit beef.

Bunch of crap!!!!...

1. Brotzman is NOT the best. Kid missing a couple of kicks resulting in death threats, etc is anything but the best. It is the worst that could have happened to that kid.

2. Cam situation...get your facts straight first.....

Wow, try some decaf. Might you be familiar with something called sarcasm?

Hey you guys get the lucky assignment of trying to tackle Dennard Robinson. Good luck with that.

How do you figure USC has beef? The two situations couldn't BE more different!!??

BS

Well, he could have ended it with a "lighten up Francis" reference.

Best team discipline moment: Chip Kelly dismissed Jeremiah Masoli, who was still eligible to play.

Worst team discipline moment: Houston Nutt snatched him up immediately.

Best repudiation of Leo Durocher: Chip Kelly's Ducks are in the BCS Title Game...and Ole Miss lost to Jacksonville State and Vanderbilt.
