Watching what games?
Rivalries?
Plays?
General commentary?
Will it be another Bama, Clemson, or (heaven forbid) Ohio State year again?
Go Michigan! (Not Sorry, Sun).

Not an OSU fan at all... always over rated.

Curious to see how USC does this year, though.

8 national championships, 39 Big 10 titles, and 10 undefeated seasons. Yup, ALWAYS overrated

I am hoping for better than I'm seeing on the pass defense though

Last national championship 2014
5-3 in bowl games 2015 through current
Last Big 10 titles 2017 through 2020

I mean, yeah, yesterday is technically the past. But I ain't talking ancient history

You going to seek out an SEC or ACC football team to follow in addition to USC?

Sun,
Do OSU helmets start every season with no buckeye stickers on the helmets and get added after each meaningful play, each week?

That is correct, sir. I remember one year, maybe an Eddie George season, but don't quote me on that. They ran out of room and had to start fresh again

I'm admittedly a wagon rider when it comes to football. I'm a Niner fan from RI for God's sake. Same with college. I have no real allegiance to USC. Just liked watching them play when Pete Carroll was doing all that cheating. lol

I'm not becoming a Gator fan, I'll tell ya that. I did live in Georgia for a year and they beat Alabama... Tank is a bully breed, so maybe go Dawgs? I dunno... we'll see.

I'm a college football whore. Have a team in most conferences. In the SEC, I'm a Dawg fan. The logo and helmet were the same of my high school, so was always drawn to it.

Not much of a fan here, but I did watch part of the UCONN game yesterday and noted two rule changes I was unaware of. The big news is that they won for the first time in I don't know how many years.

On the bright side. You can boycott watching them for another 10 years and you won’t miss them winning again.


BTW, has anyone heard that they just voted on a new championship format? Each power conference will send its champion. Plus there are some other bids. The top 4 ranked teams will get a bye which is stupid. But at least they have expanded the number of teams. Oh, and it seems that Norte Dame will be an automatic every year.

Not much of a college FB fan and although I graduated from the local university, haven’t attended a game since the mid-80s. While growing up I was happy to be able to watch, on a one-week delay, the ABC College Football Game of the Week so never got attached to one Mainland team. For me, Keith Jackson is THE voice of college football.

If they played in a Power 5 conference and managed to win its championship every year I’d have no problem with them being invited every year.

Why is ND an automatic?
I’m a fan of them (behind Michigan) but they should earn their spot.

The 12 teams will include the six highest-ranked conference champions and the top six highest-ranked teams that are not conference champions. Bringing an Independent, Norte Dame doesn’t have to risk a late season loss in a Championship game that could drop them out of the top 12.

For example, their final 3 games this year are against the following powerhouses:
11/12 Navy
11/19 Boston College
11/26 USC

Wouldn't it be ironic if ND supplanted LSU as one of the playoff teams?

Poor performance for sure. Two dropped punts, two blocked kicks, an all American wide receiver with 2 catch’s for 20 yards is not a good way to start the season. Lots to work on for sure.

Mebbe, but I still despise him since he hated the Buckeyes. I remember one game where our running back got hit, and Keith said he fell for 10 yards. That's a helluva hit

Well... I lived in Marietta for a year. They beat Alabama. Tank is a bully breed. And I am about 30 minutes from the state line. That was 4 reasons to get on board... now I have 5, so it's official.

I'm a UGA fan, now. Huh

Was not expecting that one. Figured ND would be fired up after last week.

Buckeyes did what they were supposed to. I'd still like to see the defense tighter though.

I had a bad feeling about the botched snap and missed FG just before halftime. I know long snapping is an art but amazed how little attention is really paid to it by coaches. Why they expect a walk-on to be on-the-money everytime is just plain dumb.

Oregon spanked BYU.

OSU is playing powerhouse juggernaut Toledo. Already up 7-0.

42-14... I think you'll be ayite.

To be fair, Alabama played powerhouse UL Monroe... this scheduling sh-t has to get better. Playing teams that are clearly out of their league is just stupid. Who wants to watch that crap?

For the record, we've got the pretty much the entire bench in the game. Not trying to run up the score. Just can't help it.
