Spot on TJW13 A little mystified by headlines that say OSU "made their case for #1" by thumping an unranked Nebraska team. Really? Did Colorado "make their case for #1" when they beat Nebraska a couple weeks back? Really don't care to hear about OSU and their stats until they play someone competent.
Auburn's D is definitely for real. But the quality of their wins over ranked teams has already faded: Oregon's no good, A&M was clearly ranked laughably high, and now everyone's losing their minds because they beat the brakes off a bad MSU team in prime time. Maybe we should slow our roll until we see how they do vs UF, LSU, Bama and UGA. I think they'll make some noise, but can't imagine they go 4-0 through that stretch.
Very, very nervous about this game. But there was one part of this piece that stood out to me: "But this type of atmosphere is nothing new to Notre Dame, which is noted for playing a tough schedule every year." Um ... what? ND's schedule is usually laughable, and known mostly for playing annual nail-biters against service academy teams. I respect ND's talent, but let's not kid ourselves about how "tough" their schedule is. Puh-leeze.
This game still makes me very nervous. UGA has a lot of inexperience at WR, and no idea if Simmons will be healthy for the game. By no means is this one a gimme.
Justin Fields may live in the end zone. But he's also living large off a pretty weak schedule so far. Let's see what happens when he plays a team with a defense.
No doubt. Seemingly endless pool of 5-star talent. Crazy.
I assumed that the slow start was a result of multiple starters being benched in the first half for discipline reasons. Hadn't realized so many true freshmen were carrying the weight. Wow.
Auburn just beat a PAC-12 team. Fixed it for you.
Oh please. FAU was completely hapless. Looked like a 7th Grade JV team. Let's see Fields, Day + Co play an actual team before everyone gets all hot and bothered.
Updating my score prediction. Dropping it from Bama by 11,000 points to Bama by 10,999 points.
Just flat-out terrible news for such a talented athlete. Hate to see this happen to any player or any program. Hope he's able to make a full recovery. Jaylon Smith was able to bounce back big; let's all pray Moses can do the same.
Prayers for Jared's recovery. The article undersold Lorenzen's NFL experience. During his two years as the #2 QB behind Eli Manning, the Giants beat the undefeated Patriots in SB 42 - Lorenzen's got a Super Bowl ring.
2021 is an eternity from now in recruiting terms. Based on how things are these days, what are the odds that Vendagriff actually ends up in Oklahoma? I'd say they're kinda slim.
KInda hate his total confidence in UGA here. Nervous about that game. Think it's going to be a tough one.
UCF doesn't actually want to be in a Power 5 ... they get more mileage acting like they belong in one. If they were ever to get into a P5, they'd be trounced on the reg and disappear from the headlines.
Yeah, UGA fans are soooo terrible. I guess that's why Fields' sister still wants to play softball for the Bulldogs for the rest of her college career. Gimme a break.
I was thinking the same thing, Joe. A lame-duck coach is recruiting poison.
Crazy. With Pickens and Blaylock at WR - who can both contribute immediately - I've completely forgotten about Haselwood.
Tell you what, if Sony could win the MVP after getting his heart broken in the same stadium a year ago ... I might almost be OK with the Pats winning the game. Almost. Better scenario - Sony runs for 200 yards, 3 TDs but the Pats lose anyway, and Sony wins MVP anyway a la Chuckl Howley. THAT would be awesome.
Lol ... if that's the case, what are the Vols selling other than a campus dominated by statues honoring the womens' hoops program?
Lol. Sure, kid. Whatever. Truth is, Haselwood doesn't want to have to block. At Georgia, he'd have to hit the weight program and actually do something more than just running post routes. UGA much better off with Blaylock who is not a one-dimensional WR.
