    I figured I'd just start one to keep going the whole season.

    We are starting to see who has it and who doesn't.

    FSU is a mess. The preseason AP poll had them in the top 20. Now they are 1-2 after losing to VATech and Syracuse. How the mighty have fallen.

    LSU is a big surprise, with wins over Miami and auburn. The auburn win was close, while the Tigers destroyed Miami.

    Georgia is looking tough, with solid wins, especially at South Carolina. But beating Austin Peay and Middle TN is showing much.

    Clemson actually struggled for a few minutes against Georgia Southern before steam-rolling them.

    Ohio State looked solid after they took control of the game against TCU. TCU will still make some noise this year.

    Wisconsin went down to to BYU. Northwestern lost to Akron after blowing a 21-3 lead. Akron hasn't beaten a BIG10 team since '94. 1894, that is. Yep, 124 years.

    Alabama destroyed Ole Miss. The Landsharks (formerly Rebels) scored a TD on the first play of the game. And then Bama rolled on O and D. Tua is looking great.

    Oh, I didn't mention Nebraska.

    When you pay a "cupcake" $1.1 million to come play your big name team, you shouldn't lose the game. That lose hurts.

    Auburn went too conservative on running late in the game and it helped cost them the game........the penalty of interference right at the end was questionable to me that got LSU into field goal range...........but the ending scoreboard is all that counts......Was a very close game.

    Alabama with Tua is ROLLING...........that guy can throw the ball........LOL

    Tide gonna be tough to beat......

    Oklahoma quarterback looks pretty good.........saw some of that.......he's a scrabbler and if he stays healthy they are going to be tough.

    Clemson strong up front both offense and defense.........

    Should be an interesting year.

    Troy is no cupcake 11-2 last year and took down LSU. LSU took down Auburn this year. Husker’s played a second string quarterback (actually third string) in his first start.

    Nebraska will get better, but anyone who thought Nebraska was going to be good this year with a brand new offense, a brand new defense and playing so many underclassmen simply don’t understand the game.

    We will see what Ohio State is made of when they face Pedo State at home, without Bosa, but not until then.

    Alabama looks like their only tough games will be LSU and Georgia.

    Clemson? Who do they play? Anyone worth the breath speaking their names?

    As for teams like Wisconsin and Nebraska, they never compete for a national title.

    And no, I'm not interested in ancient history.

    If Bosa is out for long it will hurt them.

    I think auburn will still be a tough game. And MS State may be tougher than people think this year. They beat K-State pretty soundly. The Wildcats may not be a top 10 team, but Bill Snyder does pretty well.

    Clemson does have a pretty easy schedule. Sadly, that means they could be undefeated and healthy for the playoffs.

    I desperately want my Buckeyes to face Clemson.

    We have a little vendetta against them.

    In that respect, I love their cushy schedule.

    I hope they enjoy eating bon, bons, till the playoffs.

    And yes, Clemson, we can throw the ball now.

    Thanks for that.

    I understand. I have the same desire to see Bama face the Buckeyes.

    You don't understand. This goes back to Woody Hayes.

    It was against Clemson that he smacked that player up side the head and was forced to step down.

    In fact, I'm not even sure OSU has ever beaten them.

    As for Alabama.

    Meh.

    If OSU loses I will just smile and pop the game in that we crushed them.

    It's all good either way.

    I do understand the history. It is much like my hatred for Notre Dame. They ruined too many seasons for us back in the day.

    But humiliating them on the biggest stage in college football cured most of that. I still don't like them. But reading and hearing all the hype about the Irish and then destroying them 42-14 was enough revenge to make them less of a thorn.
