Iím trying to get up to speed on whatís happening with teams this yr. I havenít checked out any previews. Still excited just the same.


Most everyone here has a team, or conference or region they follow. Pretty easy to pick up on most o of the time.

Who's your team? ACC, SEC?

I live in NE Ohio. Grew up a Nebraska fan in the late 80s and 90s. Lost touch with them when they fired Solich and never reconnected. Just can't recreate some things. Now I just try and follow every team, literally. Every team can be my favorite team on any given week. I just love college football!

Lots of fans here to, although with everything else on the forum the activity isn't what it used to be.

I'm glad you are joining us.

I live an hr from USC and about the same from Clemson so no shortage of info on those. I just havenít read up and gotten in the groove yet. I generally support my home state teams. I went to a tech school so I havenít any strong allegiance to any of em. We had a softball team but Iíve never seen odds on their games.

Thank you for the invite and welcome, itís gonna be a fun time.

I've bled Bruin Blue and Gold since I was 9. I've attended games from Seattle to Annapolis and many points in between and not just UCLA games. Over the years, I've adopted other teams. My current ones are Northwestern (Pat Fitzgerald is the most under-rated coach in the country), Colorado (can't ask for a better location to see a football game) Auburn (I like the town, the colors, and the fans).

Programs I want to see go 0-12 are BYU and kal. I find BYU arrogant and kal's fans pathetic.

Can't beat college football tailgating either. It is the best and for many times over the last 20 seasons, the tailgate has been the highlight of Bruin football.

Hopefully CCK takes UCLA to The Promised Land one day. We'll see. GO BRUINS!

Last night was fun. Enjoyed the NW-Pur game. Wish I had enjoyed the WF-Tulane game a little more with Wave losing in OT. Alot of failed opportunities for Wave in that one, but WF was better team. Really impressed with the true FR QB for WF Hartman playing his first ever live snaps of college football. Watched some Kennesaw - Georgia State game along with the SE Louisiana and ULM game. Those were some pretty good ones.

Nice little slate of games tonight. Can't wait!

Looking to see how CSU rebounds in their second game vs CU in the Rocky Mountain Showdown. I'm expecting CSU to really bring it tonight, think they are good value getting over a TD.

Michigan State should be really good this year, although I can't help it, I am kind of a Utah State fan too. Really tough game for the Aggies here, think they have a nice little team this season, will be interested to see how much they can challenge MSU.

Expect Cuse to win at WMich. Love P5 teams going to these small school stadiums. Think WM will have a really nice running game, but that is about all they have. If Cuse can load up to stop it I don;t believe WM has it through the air or in the D to win. Really like Eric Dungey's game for Cuse as well.

Army - Duke and San Diego State - Stanford definitely have my attention as well.

It's going to be a good night!

5 games tonight on the pick'em. Still time for anyone to sign up!!!

I have seven out of eight correct in my pool that really matters ($$$) so I am happy at the moment.

Today should be fun. Supposed to be hot, humid and rainy here in Chicago so while not really football weather, I'll take it. Wouldn't mind tailgaiting though!

GO BLUE!

I generally like Michigan State but when I saw that Utah State had a shot at the upset I was rooting for them. The fans at that game got there moneys worth.

Washington shot themselves in the foot on three occasions but some of the calls or missed calls going Auburns way could have been evened out a bit.

Why are there no kickoff classic games outside the southeast? The "neutral site" is a bit of a stretch when game is an hours drive or less from the state of ALabama.

Ducks!!!!

I agree on the neutral site thing, having it in someone's backyard makes it worse. I like home-and-home better, but that is where the money is...lots of money on those neutral site games.

Why all in the south...maybe because it just means more?

The people that put those games together likely just consider where they will get the best turnout, where the highest concentration of fans willing to come to the games reside. Would be great to see some games like that outwest, but the PAC12 can't fill their stadium in the title games. PAC12 teams don't fill neutral site stadiums the way SEC teams do.

So week 1 in the books, what did you all think?

I had nice Thursday, Friday and Mondays. Saturday wasn't as fun as I had hoped, but even the worst day of college football is better than...just about every other day!

I thought that was a fun game to watch. A few mistakes but entertaining nonetheless.

Might go to the Northwestern / Duke game Saturday morning / afternoon. Hard to beat two bucks for a ticket and I don't think I will be missing much on TV that afternoon. No early games I really care about.

College GameDay Sign of the Week..."Jesus Hates Khakis"

Speaking of, Harbaugh is...underwhelming so far in his tenure in Ann Arbor. Just IMO.

Oklahoma looked fantastic!

Out here on the fruited plain...K-State let South Dakota hang around way too long and almost paid the price. Not a good look with Mississippi State coming into Manhattan this weekend.

Kansas...close the program. Shut it down. I've been giving grief to Jayhawks around me all week. If they can't get some of the basketball money and the wealthy alumni (of which there are several) to replace that dump of a stadium and repair that dump of a program then they should all be publicly ridiculed for thinking they are anywhere close to being a true Power 5 school.

Penn State...see K-State.

Miami...never left the locker room, was a little surprising. LSU remains an unknown, though.

Saban didn't really need to snap at that reporter, did he?

I didn't think that Ohio State would really cover, but those are some bad Beavers, apparently.

If it's close by, WTH. NW is a good squad that has a good coach. Duke has improved under David Cutliff. It should be an entertaining game.

Yes, going to the Duke - NW game should be fantastic. I really thought that Duke QB Daniel Jones was playing with confidence again after a rough and banged up last year for him. Duke has a good team. So does Northwestern. If you live that close and have nothing better to do, it sounds like a great idea!

Yes Oklahoma, wow. FAU not be a fast D compared to the team speed that OU has, but they are a really veteran unit and the fact that they offered zero resistance was surprising. In hindsight, with the new FAU QB (former OU) after having a cool-handed Driskel last year was an underestimated loss. Interesting to see where FAU goes from here (host Air Force this week - FAU lost to Navy last year). Lane Kiffin got fed a big ole pile of humble pile in that one.

I could not find that Kansas State game to watch, I saw they were trailing late and wanted to see it. Looks like KSt kicked FGs from the 7, 5, 21 and 27. Those are some short FGs. South Dakota is a good team and all, but if you are KSt you got to have some better finishes to those drives. Then they handed SD 10 pts off turnovers with a short field FG and pick-six. WR Zuber to the rescue with the punt ret TD and the TD catch. Barnes fumbled twice. Miss State was sure a well oiled machine last year, looking forward to this one. The Game Of The Year spread on this one was 2.5 in the summer, it is up to 8.5 now. That is alot of pts for a road fav going to Manhattan with a new coaching staff and a QB coming off a broken leg having not played a snap yet this year.

Kansas Jayhawks. Again, sometimes it helps to know who the good teams are in FCS/IAA, but I expected KU to beat Nicholls even though Nicholls was a playoff team I believe last year. And it wasn't really even like KU played well and just made some bad plays to help out Nicholls. Nicholls actually made some bad plays to help KU stay in the game. Well there was a bad facemask penalty on the Nicholls QB to keep a drive alive. But I think KU got a free safety on a bad punt and then Nicholls muffed a punt at the 10 and KU got a free TD out of that. Nicholls sacked them 6x! Funny I still think KU can win this week at Central Mich, but KU hasn't won a road game in how many games, like 40 or something? They hired Jeff Long for AD, he is a CFB guy. Just don't know what they can do to turn it around. We remember the dark days of Northwestern and Kansas State and Temple and Oregon State (who is bad again), those teams reinvented themselves at one point in time, how can Kansas do it. Like it was just over 10 years ago they were in the Orange Bowl!

I don't know I could talk about college football forever. Wednesday is almost over that means just 2 more days and a wake up to another fantastic Saturday!
