Default It's College Football Time!

Temperatures still hitting the mid-90s in NorCal, but football is no respecter of weather or the sport's spectators.

SEC took an early hammering; my alma mater, Auburn, stressed me until the final seconds, yet again. Could not have been much closer. Wouldn't be surprised to see Oregon finishing the season on top of the Pac-12.

True freshman QBs is one of the top stories, this season.

Once again, Alabama and Clemson are the ones to beat; would love to see an end to those dynasties, but it doesn't look promising.

Week 1 was pretty amazing! There were several fun games.

I'm a Volunteer fan, but if losing to Georgia State is any indication, it may be a long season. In that case, I'll enjoy watching others... and maybe find some time to root for Clemson to repeat.

Penn State won against an inferior team. Pitt lost to a better team. The two state rivals (aka big brother and little brother) will face off later this season. Iím pulling for Penn State but they lost to Pitt last year.

Hoping my Buckeyes will come together and improve weekly. They have real potential if they can just be patient and enjoy the run.

Well, we had some bad breaks against the Cardinals. But plenty of time to regroup before UNLV, and then the first conference game against Spartans.

As will I. The Oklahoma game was the only one that was worth watching for the general interest fan. I just wonder how long Jalen can keep it up. That's a very dangerous style of quarterbacking.

PSU beat Pitt 51-6 last year. I wish they would do away with these former "rivalry" matchups, as it's not in PSU's best interests and weakens their overall schedule. I'd like to see them take on ranked teams early like Texas or Georgia (PSU's first opponents for my first two years of college) or re-start the Big10/Pac rivalries and schedule against Washington or Oregon. I'd rather lose to a Top 10 team early than get looked over for a BCS opportunity b/c we crushed Pitt or Temple again.

Jacob Eason...... what an arm! Did you see his 70 yard incompletion? Receiving corps is awesome this year as are running backs. Defense is going to be real good. Chris Peterson is the perfect coach for the Huskies. Go Dawgs!

How this for anecdotal trivia.

I still have vague memories from when I was 5 years old , (1955) of getting to sit on the bench ( my dad was a waterboy) of U of Oklahoma when Bud Wilkinson took his Sooners to a National Championship . And even got a singed chin strap ( which unfortunately has long since been lost)

Bud Wilkinson was a horrible NFL coach, indeed (fired mid-season by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1979 after but a season and a half at the helm).
