College Football (Not Big Ten)

Recommended Posts

Thought I would start a general college football for games other than B1G games. I already posted about the ND/BS game.

But in case anyone missed it, Kainsucky beat #25 Florida in Gainseville. It has been something like 30 years since they beat Florida on their home field.

Herm Edwards and 2 returning starters on defense has Arizona St actually playing D. Really good start for them. Some very big time programs looking rather pedestrian. Florida, Florida St, Texas....Arkansas spends a ton.

Florida and Texas are ranked at the start of every year almost by default. Still living off their 2000's legacies a decade later.

Can you imagine Alabama and their legacy???  WOWZA!!

Thanks Proud for starting this thread.   Anybody who happened to catch the Colorado/Nebraska game saw one heck of a good game.  Reminded me of the games those two had when both were in the Big 8/12.  Sorry, one of the teams is now in the B1G.  But a very entertaining game, never the less.

Proud.... you mentioned Florida.  I pity Colorado State having to go there next weekend.

Yes Mile, I think it's gonna be another year of Alabama and everyone else. But it's early yet so we'll see....

Natives gonna get restless in Tallahassee. Florida State gets stomped by Syracuse.  

Nebraska too. New coach same results. These major programs like Texas, Nebraska, Florida, Florida St, USC and others won’t wait around long if they think they have the wrong guy running things. Losing to Alabama or Oklahoma or Stanford is one thing...losing to Troy and Maryland and UK is another.

Agreed.  They are saying this is the first time Nebraska started the season 0-2, since 1957.  Hard to believe. I can understand dropping a game to an old rival,   Colorado.  But dropping a game to Troy.... what's with that.

In the meantime, our no name Hoosiers are half way to being bowl eligible !

ND ekes out a win against Vandy. I don't know if they are deserving of their #8 ranking......

You're being way too kind.  After watching IU dismantle the same Fighting David Lettermans that gave Notre Dame fits last week, I don't think they belong in the top 25.

Yeah, something just ain't right with the Irish.  The way they are playing ain't gonna get it done against Stanford or Va Tech.

Very possible they don’t win 3 games this year...their schedule is brutal...up next is Michigan...but they still have Wisconsin, mich st, osu, and Iowa...northwestern and Minnesota won’t be gimmies either. 

 

Purdue is in a similar situation....maybe 2 wins?
