Yes, it starts today. Duquesne and UMass is about to kick! Never been so excited for such an obscure game. College football is back!

Our pick'em league is still missing some past players. 7 people signed up, glad to see Fast43 back! 5 Friday 8/31 games are on the pick list. Step right up players!

I went to UMass for a summer session many moons ago. Go Minutemen!!

Watching NC A&T vs Jacksonville State; it's on ESPN. What the hell!

Look for the Gators to make plenty of noise this season. They've got talent on both sides of the ball plus Dan Mullens is a great coach. He knows out to develop QBs.

GO BRUINS!

Big loss for Michigan with Tarik Black's injury. He missed 10 games with a right foot injury last year, now he injured his other foot in camp. Black flashed some promise last season and was going to be a big part of a potentially improved Michigan O this season.

Nice teasers on Saturday night. Wasn't expecting that kind of offensive output from Hawai'i and Wyoming was supposed to be terrible.

I just seen where Clemson is using the QB from last yr in the opener with Furman. That shouldnít be much of a challenge game.

Just saw this thing on ESPN that lists the Heisman favorites and Alabama QB Tagovailoa is their favorite. I found that interesting.

Yeah that sucks. But they are going to have to rely on defense this season anyway so maybe they can fill in that hole.

Yes you are right, but that is what they did last year, rely on the defense and that got them 8-5 with loses to the other big 3 in the East.

No doubt that D will lead the way again, but improvement must be had on offense. An expanded role for a healthy Black was going to fill that hole. Not sure what other underwhelming upperclassman they have to utilize unless there is a freshman we don't know about.

Not like a single WR can totally change my opinion on a team's fortune's, but I went from optimistic they could win as many as 10 games, now the toss-up games, like ND week 1, have become more difficult I think without a talent like Black available.

Great Lee, glad you are in!

The deadline technically would be 5+ minutes before the kickoff of the first game. However, I believe you can sign up for the yahoo sports leagues during the season, and since we drop everyone's single worst week, it is possible that somebody could sign up for week 2 and play it out from there with week 1 being their dropped week. Not 100% sure on that, but I think yahoo let's people join after the season.

But at this point we have most of our regulars and we've atleast heard form oldcoot and sang on their intentions. I did email Alan, so hopefully he will join as he has always been in the leagues. Then we can find one more for a dozen!

There are always alot of games to pick the first 2 weeks because so many teams play their fcs/IAA nonconference opponents. Those games do not have point spreads, just pick the winner. Sometimes those IAA boys beat their IA counterparts. I think I was the only one who picked James Madison to beat ECU last year. NCSt is a tougher foe for them this year and I haven't read up on JMU yet this season.

What games do you all plan to make it to this year?

I only make 1 a year, some off the radar game usually.

This year we are going to Morgantown for the Baylor - WVU game Thursday night! We may also go to a Buffalo Bulls home game on some MACtion night in November.

So the lines that are currently off won't have a line?

Dan always hates South Carolina. So does our friend hoffcl, he used to call them "the team from the state under North Carolina". One is a Clemson fan (going for 5 straight over SC this year) and the other is a Georgia fan (the last in the series 3 Georgia has won by 14 or more).

I think SC can be good, but they were 9-4 last year, just 5-3 in the SEC. How much better can they be? They were 6-1 in one score games last year and won 3 games in which they were outgained in yardage. So SC may have to be improved this year just to go 5-3 in the league again. Don't forget SC has lost 4 straight to UK!!!

Everyone knows that Muschamp teams can typically play some D, it's just the O on his watch never pulls their weight.





Yeah, but isn't the scoop on that team supposed to be offense this year?

What I love about us, the good guys, playing them this year is that so many people are saying they will beat us. So, this game isn't going to slip up on us - the good guys.

Yahoo never does point spreads for games involving FCS/IAA teams. So those will still say 'off' Friday. Otherwise they put the line off if there is some injury, weather or other issue where books are unsure of line adjustment. I don't know what source yahoo uses. Just know that whatever the Friday spread is on there will be the official and final number for right/wrong picks.

Alright Chris is in house tonight too!

I recall Muschamp saying he wish he had OC Roper earlier at Florida, now he is the scapegoat for last season's O issues.

They say the O is supposed to be better. Not knowing any philosophical changes, I would say it should because I believe there is potential there. Then again Will has only had a decent O once in 6 years as a head coach so something with him could be constraining his offenses. Bentley is fine but I have yet to see him really develop, may be it will happen this year, maybe it can't happen. Just hope Deebo can stay healthy because he is fun!

Yeah, I've heard so many people on that SC team week 2. But you have to love that right? It adds to the game, not just that gamecock fans are running their mouth, but there seems to be Georgia doubters all over. Georgia is only going to get better and better and better. So if SC is going to get you, this is probably their best chance.

I just heard about the GA doubters from a bud at lunch. USC fans have been focused on this yrs Clemson game for many months since they touted that 5 in a row thing to no end themselves. They focus much more on hate for Clem that supporting usc.
