    Haven't seen a thread on this yet for this season, but this past weekend was so great having college football back...

    Kevin T, soizgood, countless others...Let's get this party started!

    Kevin, how bad were you freaking last night?

    Iowa's 18-17 victory over Northern Illinois proves that they are "the real #1".

    #6 Florida State romped as expected 69-3 vs Murray State. There were good and bad results on the D-line...Bjorn Werner, a junior DE with only two years of HS football under his belt, continues his development and was voted the Lott IMPACT (named for Ronnie Lott) Player of the Week; however, Brandon Jenkins has been lost for the season with a Lesfranc fracture in his foot.

    FSU's schedule is good...only one game outside the state of Florida before a big showdown with Va. Tech in November in Blacksburg. This could be two top-5's going at each other! Go Noles!

    Agree Tom. The Oline looks a lot better than last year. In fact the entire team looked great. I am a little nervous about EJ still, but he should have a lot more time this year to make reads so I think he will be great.

    Really sucks about Jenkins. That is a huge loss. Werner is a total stud, but Jenkins helped him out by drawing double teams over and over. The good news is that Werner will now draw those double teams, and hopefully Tank can step up and get his.

    We will miss Jenkins against Clemson..we really need a solid end rush and pressure in that game.

    FYI-there's a poster here ("Rabbit") who's an MSU alum and big Bulldog supporter (he usually posts in the Strings & Racquets section). Me? ... I like watching MSU but listening to those damn clanging cowbells non-stop are enough to drive you nuts.



    on-topic: Thus far (just like the end of last year), it looks like there's Alabama and then there's everybody else. Amazing that they can lose high NFL draft picks from last year's championship squad such as Richardson (RB), Hightower & Courtney (LBs), Barron (S), then re-load and come back at you this year with a bulldozer OL, a slew of talented RB's (that frosh Yeldon looks great, along with Lacy et al) and a hard-hitting D. Saban is one hell of a recruiter and imho 'Bama's clearly the preeminent program in college football.

    I fixed your post for you ;)

    You're spot on about Alabama. State is a good football team with the unfortunate situation of playing in a conference division that spots 3 - 4 top ten teams at any one time. It is frustrating.

    Ditto the cowbells reference...my head is still ringing from them when MSU visited Tallahassee and smoked FSU during our worst season ever (0-11). That was 39 years ago!

    At least it's at the Doak. Bad weather in November at Blacksburg levels the playing field for the Hokies.

    Thanks for starting the thread, Big. I was pooping rocks (per Rubie Sue on 'Christmas Vacation') late in the game. Glad the convict could 'bail' us out and put the game into OT. I was fully expecting another 'chokie' moment. I rant about it year after year but still can't figure out why Beamer can't open up the offense and/or recruit the athletes for a pro style offense. They get practically every good player in VA and snag a lot from Maryland, NC, TN, PN, OH but refuse to run a high output offense. The D has always been there, so why not open things up? I agree with Mik that Clemson should be a tougher out for FSU (and vice versa), though you never know.

    Bama looks nasty. When you lose 7 D starters (and 6 are playing in the NFL right now-unreal), your D shouldn't be as good as Bama's. :) I share Rabbit's pain RE playing in the SEC...watched my Cats kick off another cellar dwellar season by dropping a pile against Lville on Sunday. Have fun this year, Joker...might be your last.

    I'm hoping Oregon or USC gets through the season undefeated, as I really want to see another Pac 12/SEC title game.

    Could the Big 10 have had much worse of an opening weekend? Only Mich State showed up and they almost lost at home to a Boise team that is nowhere near as strong as its been for the last 4 or 5 years

    Hey now, Wisconsin beat Northern Iowa by 5 and r2 already mentioned that big Iowa victory. And Ohio U is a great team. :) I actually went to Ohio U for Hallowen one year during college...it exceeded the hype.

    Michigan looked terrible. It's funny how ESPN was hyping Michigan's offense. I can't tell you how many times I heard "I'll be interested to see how Bama handles Michigan's offensive attack"...whah whah. They handled it like a hammer handles a nail.

    Outside of my Chokies, the best game was Vandy/USC. Vandy could've, maybe even should've, taken that one.

    Long time Bama fan here. It's amazing what Saban has done in a few years. As good as they are, I don't think they will repeat this year, in fact I see perhaps two losses. Road schedule is brutal.

    I live in Nashville and was at that Vandy game. I have never seen a team find a way to lose games they could win more than they always do. They have done it for years.

    May I direct you to a certain team in the beautiful mountains of SW Virginia. A team that has earned the nickname 'Chokies' with good reason. :)

    The hypocrisy that is the NCAA: the Okla. St. - Savanah State disgrace

    Rant alert:

    And a big fat "middle finger" to the NCAA for sanctioning these Okla. State - Savanah State 84-0 type of "big boys vs. little school" dangerous mismatches.

    Additionally, I'd like to send out a big F.U. to both money-grabbing Savanah St. and Oklahoma State (84-0?!!) for agreeing to this game in the first place and putting throughly outclassed SSU kids in a position to get seriously hurt. I don't want to hear the "generate revenue" for the other non-revenue-generating sports argument; those schools put those kids at risk for money (SSU) and a low-risk scrimmage (OSU). Phuckin' pigs, both schools.

    This isn't tennis. In tennis, a physical mismatch means a bagel. In football, it can mean your ass.

    Round 2 of the SSU roadfest: this week in Tallahassee vs. FSU. At least the trip home is much shorter.

    Record point-spread (70.5) being offered now on FSU-SSU game tomorrow. They need practice on those two-point conversions, like nine straight of them! If I were a bettor, I would take SSU. I know 84-0 happened last week @ Ok. St. but Fisher will protect his roster by the "early pine" order. Scrubs clean up the second half, 66-6.

    It's going to be tough, since one team would have to beat the other, twice.

    Our RS Freshman QB Mariota looked amazing in his debut, but I don't know how he'll handle the pressure of playing at USC. However, even if SC wins on November 3rd, I think we'd have a great shot at the Pac-12 title game. I favor Chip Kelly as a strategist moreso than Lane Kiffin.

    I don't know if 12-1 would get a Pac-12 team into the NC game, especially if there's a Big10/12 team that runs the table. At this point, I don't know if I'd want to deal with Alabama as it is...Oregon is fast and getting bigger, but they're fast and huge at every position.

    Should be a great CFB season!

    Hopefully, Jimbo ignores that instinct...as stated, we have already lost a stud DE for the year in the first JV-level game. Jenkins may lose a fortune on his draft value if he opts to skip '13. Get the lead and some reps for the starters and pull the plug at halftime. If the scrubs are good enough to build on the lead, so be it.

    Anybody else enjoy the UCLA/Nebraska game as much as I did? And I'm a closet Huskers fan! I was impressed with the fire UCLA played with...didn't expect that at all. Jim Mora, Jr. really had them prepared to play. Will be interesting to see how their season plays out.

    Well that FSU game was something. Obviously we were supposed to play WVU, which would have been awesome, but instead these poor guys come in and just get manhandled. One thing is clear to me - our offensive line is so much better. I hope I did not jinx it, but if we can get a push like that off the Oline I dont see us losing this year. It is just night and day from last year. I saw us struggling in our easier opening games last year, so this is great, even against weak opponents. It is just really hard for me to get excited about these games though, in terms of watching and getting into them.

    Kind of a boring week for college football to me honestly.

    I hate soft teams on schedules. The NCAA screwed up again. They could have eliminated these soft games and went to an 8 team playoff. 8 teams is perfect, and while the 9th team will have a complaint, it would be incredibly exciting to see 8 v 1 and so on. It also would eliminate one or both of these soft games so the season actually kicks off solidly like the NFL does.

    ^^^How much time was left when they applied the "mercy rule"? I wasn't one of the bettors that would be steamed right now if FSU had a few more possessions in order to cover that ridiculous spread.

    Well the game was taken off the books so nobody lost any money. It was bizarre. Ended in the 3rd quarter. There was more lightning coming so both teams agreed to end it, and the conference coordinators had to agree it would go as a win to FSU as well. So it counts in the stat sheets, but not in vegas basically.

    High rollers less than 3 TDs from covering didn't lose but they're probably still cursing. Glad it's not my cup of tea...Fantasy 5 is my only gambling vice.

    Yes you are correct. FSU had 48 in the first half and was scoring on every possession, even with the starters benched, so it looks like they would have dropped 80-90 down. So indeed people did lose winnings. The more I think about it, the more people got screwed because it was the highest spread in history. That alone makes me think hardcore gamblers got in on it, just to be a part of that.

    Check one off your list, Big. :) That USC loss is just what the doctor ordered for Oregon.

    Bama and LSU now 1-2 with GA and SC making 50% of the top 8 SEC in the AP coaches' poll. Big 10 looks dreadful and I just can't see Clemson, FSU or anyone in the Big 12 challenging the SEC. I know it's way early and a lot can happen but it looks like it's up to Oregon again.

    My Chokies looked absolutely dreadful against Pitt. D looked terrible and as usual, couldn't score. This might be the year UVA gets revenge in the in-state rivalry. My UK 'Cats had a wonderful loss to the Mighty Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky. Good Lord. :(

    As a Mountaineer fan, I was really hoping for a 0-0 tie in the VT/Pitt game. I'm happy with the results, though, since Pitt essentially ruined VT's chances for a huge season.

    Geno Smith has 9 TD passes, 9 incompletions, and 0 interceptions after two games. Time for some real competition, though, to know for sure if WVU is ready for the big time.

    WVU certainly looked good finishing up last season. I have no doubt they are right there with (possibly even better than) the eventual ACC champ. But once again, unless a miracle occurs, I can't see anyone shaking up the SEC stranglehold.

    Rabbit, you living in Mississippi? I live about 30 min from Starkville. Big win against auburn but the Troy game had me on edge. That game left a lot to be desired. But a W is a W!! First time the ms state bulldogs with our clanging cowbells have been 3-0 to start the season since 1999!!! We have a schedule to where we could possibly be 7-0. Time will tell.

    It's going to be tough for sure for another conference to win the "National Championship". I'd like to see a team from another conference get a chance, at least, for starters.

    'Bama is as clean as the driven snow, r2. :) As much as 'Bama and their church members love football, you can be sure they are as good at covering up as they are at cheating...if they are cheating. :) The SEC has made it through relatively unscathed to this point, unlike Ohio State, Penn State and soon to be again USC. Not quite sure how they do it, but they do it.

    Me too. I lived in Charleston, SC for a number of years and have always had a soft spot for Clemson and I really like their current coach. I would like to see them erase the last decade of ACC mediocrity, as I'm an ACC guy by geography and undergrad (Va Tech). I would also like to see Oregon do it because:

    1. BigServer is my TW homie and deserves a national title :)
    2. Anyone that beats USC is okay in my book and Oregon has been the Pac 12's best for a few years now
    3. Can't stand Stoops and Oklahoma and really, really don't want them to break the stranglehold

    However, r2 tells me that Iowa is right on the brink of greatness. :)

    Iowa is a team the 'bama's, LSU's, etc. of the college football world don't want to face. We taught Northern Iowa a little lesson this weeked. We got Central Michigan and then Minnesota. If 'Bama had to face this type of schedule, they'd be lucky to go .500

    Anybody see the end to the Utah-BYU game Saturday? I was hoping BYU would make that final field goal and take the game in OT. Would have loved to see how the fans (mostly students) felt about storming the field too early (twice) and losing the game for their team.

    Can not wait to see FSU play Clemson. We owe these guys a serious beating and it has to happen this year. Yes we have played easy teams so far but what we did to Wake (who beat us last year) Saturday has me very very optimistic. I watched college football all day and the only team that I think is just scary as an FSU fan is Alabama due to their line play.

    I think you have to press their WRs, not give them those medium timing routes, and focus on shutting down that runner. Force their QB to show he can throw deeper balls. I'd love to see FSU take on Alabama in the NT if we can keep this mo going. Jimbo is a Saban disciple and he has taken us from garbage to gold on both sides of the line. With the advent of the spread, and so much talent to recruit RBs and WRs from, college football titles seem to hinge mainly on Dline and Oline play now.

    Look at OSU versus Cal. OSU is an ok team, rebuilding. But Cal has no depth on the lines and their D was caught out of position at the end due to cheating on the run.

    I am really impressed by stanfords win over USC, but I am not sure if they have the horses to play that power game against an SEC team or not. See ORE V LSU last year. I am very interested in the Stanford ORE game, because I think Stanford is built to drive a truck through ORE in the 4th quarter if they can hang around in the 1st 3.

    Thanks Kevin...I'd love to see Oregon win it as well, for obvious reasons.

    I just have no idea what to think of our team right now. We haven't played anyone (effing Kansas State...), and we lost two of our best and most experienced players (Boyett and York) to injuries.

    USC looks beatable, but they also might go on an EFF YOU! tear through the conference. They're definitely talented enough. Stanford all of a sudden looks terrifying, though we've had their number the last two years.

    The Pac all of a sudden looks interesting...Arizona scores at will, UCLA looks legit, Oregon State plays very solid defense, and obviously the big three trio of Oregon, SC and Stanford make the top half of the conference very legit. We'll see who comes through.

    In all seriousness, I don't see anyone beating Bama/LSU for the title. Bama specifically has made good teams look absolutely silly. I'm sick of the SEC domination, but there's not a question about who the best league is.

    Clemson is giving up way too many yards against the likes of Auburn who needed overtime to beat Louisiana-Monroe at home this weekend, Ball State and Furman. The Clemson D seems to tighten up once the opponent gets close to scoring though. Still, that is not good to give the opponents so much time with the ball. That does not give our offense enough time to score against the likes of FSU.

    I think we will see a shootout like last year but unless Clemson wins the turnover battle by 2 or 3, the Clemson D just is not going to be up to the task this year. Our speed guys seem to torch FSU lately, so hopefully that is the case this year. I have to watch the game Saturday with 2 FSU alums, so hopefully they don't blow us out.

    The difference I see between FSU this year and last year is that our running game is FAR FAR better. It's like night and day, and our Oline is just far better as well. I think we will run it and set up the 20 yard passes. I know clemson was giving us that last year and we will take those all day with this fleet of WRs we have.

    On defense so far I have been much more impressed with our DBs over last year. It is like losing Greg Reid is a good thing because now Darby gets to play and he is like glue on people. The clemson game is going to show a lot of things, but right now from what I have seen, I think we have a team that can compete for a NT as long as our QB just executes and makes the right decisions.

    Twin 52-0 beatdowns of conference foes by 'Bama & FSU! I'm hoping both stay in the title hunt to the end. Jimbo knows a bit about SEC powerball and what it takes to stop it. Let's hope the horses he need stay healthy.

    The cream of the Pac 12 looks really good...and then there is Colorado. Holy cow, are they terrible. When I was in high school, CU was top notch and the day after Thanksgiving game against Nebraska actually mattered. They got smoked by Fresno State and lost to Sacramento State?!

    UCLA looks better than they have in many years. Offensive attack was a machine against Nebraska. It's only dreaming on my part but I would love to seem them beat USC.

    The top SEC teams have rough games coming up. Georgia probably has the easiest path with only two top 10 opponents in the gamecocks and gators. SC has Georgia, LSU and Florida back to back to back and finishes with Clemson...Ouch. Bama and LSU play early November and might get another rematch for the title game. :)

    As for my Cats, Barnhart is hearing whispers of Bobby Petrino at UK. :) Hey, we already sold our souls to the devil on Coach Cal, why not go 'all in'. :)

    Crazy to think that it's only been 10 years since Colorado was going to BCS games. They are a sorry excuse for a DI program. The rest of the Pac-12 at least has something redeeming about each team.

    I have such a love/hate relationship with the SEC. I respect the football, but it gets old seeing them dominate. I think Alabama would hold their own against the Cleveland Browns right now, but they have a brutal schedule this year...We'll see if they can navigate it with only one loss (12-1 gets them or LSU into the title game imo).

    Petrino at UK? Whoooo boy get ready for some scandals! Bobby P will find some co ed that he fancies and put her on his motorcycle. Where have I heard this story before...

    Plenty of young bluegrass honeys will be lining up for that bike ride. :) UK needs a big name coach for recruiting. Basketball will always be king but you can't get dominated by Louisville in anything and lose to the likes of WKU and expect to be around very long.

    I understand your love/hate with the SEC. It's like USA basketball in the Olympics for me. I know I'm supposed to cheer for them but wouldn't be devastated if they were upset. :)

    I kind of knew USC wasn't all that. They could still win their division, but I'm still not impressed with Barkley. Stanford and Oregon are the PAC-12's best hopes this year.

    I just want to see a non-SEC team (excluding the Big-12) win the title.
