I got the Utes game last Thursday and Utah State game on Subday, but because we were at a friends cabin & on the boat last Saturday, this is my first CFB Saturday of the year.

Surprised how much I'm enjoying this Mcneese State vs Nebraska game.

Some really good games on tap later. In the big ones, taking Oregon over MSU, USC over Stanford & Michigan over ND(some of that is my dislike for ND).

Also taking the Utes over Fresno and Texas over BYU(that is just a pure hate pick).

Great time of year!

Oh and Washington State chit the bed to start the season.... I hope their play is just like this in 3 weeks! Other than that, wish them better luck, a good friends nephew is the backup QB for them, got his first snap in CFB as a RS Frosh last night.

Took a pair of late picks, but my Heels managed to squeak by SDSU at home. But at least they didn't pull a Buckeye buckup, what with the Hokie poking they hosted.

I think it was good to see the entire SEC basically get humbled. It is good for college football.
Was it good for ME? Not really, I had tempered expectations for the LSU team when it was time to
play football this late summer and there was still no blue-chip QB in town. How is it LSU always has such
picked-over QBs? Must be the Les Miles syndrome. Recruits well, seems to use talent poorly. Kind of like
Josh Pastner at Memphis Basketball. I'd say better luck next year, but I predict more of the same.
Congrats to all the "other than SEC" teams out there. Nice work.

It was only a five point game halfway through the third, and then turnovers completely did FSU in. Same thing could've easily happened to tOSU last night (with four turnovers of their own) but Oregon was only able to generate seven points off of turnovers.

Oregon's offense was barely on the field the second half because they couldn't stop the Buckeyes running game.

Agreed but there isn't a BCS anymore. That's why it worked this year, no BCS system which was terrible IMO.

I've been wanting some sort of playoff system for awhile now and glad we finally got it. It's too bad a team like TCU didn't make the playoffs, but after much thought, I think 4 teams vs 8 is just right. Most years 4 teams would be enough to choose a champion out of. If you stretch it to 8, I think that lessens the meaning of the regular season too much. Sure a #7 or #8 seeded team could get hot and run the table to win the championship, but that would probably mean a 2 or 3 loss team does it. I think choosing 4 and giving them a playoff is the best compromise even though some years a team like TCU will be left out.

No matter how many teams are in a playoff, there will always be people *****ing about that next team that didn't make it and how they got snubbed. lol
