Georgia's QB problem seemed to get solved very quickly in our cupcake game.

Very surprised Urban started Cardale.  His stat line was just ordinary enough to keep the QB competition alive if we have games like PSU or Indiana last year.

JT Barrett should have started. If they wanted to run that option stuff to loosen up the Bear front why in the hell would you not use your better running QB? All he does when he comes in is rip off a 40 yard run and then throw a 26 yard touchdown pass. If Barrett starts I really think OSU hangs 60 on them.

Not entirely happy with that game. There was too much freelancing on defense and VT exploited it, and if their QB doesn't get hurt this was a much closer game. I know Bosa was out but that defense needs to improve.

Until someone beats them, this year is going to be nothing but tOSU stories. They are fun to watch I guess.

Nobody will beat them. Their schedule is hot garbage of unranked Big10 teams until they get to Michigan State, and no guarantees either Michigan or Michigan State are ranked by then given what I've seen.

I'll take my yearly shot at the Big 10 early for getting bounced in games against BYU, TCU, Utah, Temple, Alabama, Marshall, with an honorable mention for Indiana pulling one out of the fire against stronghold Southern Illinois.

I've said it before, Ohio State is a world beater program playing in an absolute shithole of a conference. They will be favored by double digits every single game left. They are the only thing giving it any national title credibility ever since Michigan went into the shitter.

The rest of the Big 10 except for Michigan and Michigan State is content to take the TV money and go through the motions of fielding a team, and that's why Gary Andersen left Wisconsin. It's the college football equivalent of La Liga.

Yeah that's probably true.

Oh and there's 10 SEC teams in the AP top 25 today. That's ridiculous. There's no way ten teams should be ranked. Then I thought around college football and went.

Big 10 - Ohio State and Mich St.
ACC - Clemson, FSU, and GA Tech
Big 12 - OU, Baylor, and TCU
Pac 12 - USC, Oregon, UCLA

That's basically the 12 teams right now that I think look like they have a title shot at the playoff in the other conferences. So yeah, I guess we've come to a weird time when most conferences are becoming extremely top-heavy.

I also came away vaguely dissatisfied.  I was firmly on Team Cardale all offseason, but that was premised on someone replacing Devin Smith in the burner role.  I was not unhappy with the receivers yesterday, but nobody really tried to separate 50 yards downfield.  Defenses will not care about Cardale's arm if nobody can catch it.  And in the absence of that factor (and the advantages it gives Elliott) Barrett is the superior runner and short/intermediate passer.

Week one of CFB at least has the kickoffs. Have you seen the Week 2 schedule? It's so terrible.

There's maybe 5 interesting/close games to me not counting my UGA/Vandy game which only I'll care about.

Notre Dame @ Virginia
OU @ Tennessee
Kentucky @ South Carolina
Oregon @ Michigan State
LSU @ Mississippi State

Got a sinking feeling that this is the Mad Hatter's swan song season. No way he gets out of this with less than 4 losses... and it probably starts this weekend.

I have a serious issue with my favorite teams not having a QB. It is becoming a condition I think...

I'd have put LSU and MSU on the CBS game instead of Vandy and UGA. I have no idea why in the world my game got that slot. It's going to be ridiculous. Vandy will get buttstomped.

Bleh, OSU-Hawaii was the most atrocious 38-0 win you'll ever see.  Defense gets an A- (Hawaii's offense looked like it would be pretty helpless even if we didn't bother them), offense gets a D and special teams get an F.  Please sponsor  some dorm kicking competitions and make the winner the starter. 

The biggest gripe I have about this game is that Urban didn't structure it in a way that gives us any QB clarity.  You want to take Cardale out after two sucky quarters?  Fine, but keep J.T. in the rest of the game and REALLY find out who can rally the offense.  Giving J.T. one or two series, and then having Cardale (and again J.T. at the end) hand off the entire second half tells you nothing.

The good news is OSU has 2 more games to figure it out before they even get to conference stuff.

Oh and lulz TN and AK, two of the most overrated programs from pre-season talk ever. Get a real QB you orange assholes.

He's done nothing yet. He said he wouldn't trade him for Maty Mauk. I'm like, you mean the QB with a 130 rating, 2 East titles and beaten you twice? I don't understand Vols thinking they've made it. They are getting better but good lord, dial back the insanity.

I can't even comprehend how LSU has been above .500 each year without a QB. Hopefully Fournette stays healthy.

I'm not thinking the Vols have made it.  Didn't think that before the OK game.  I think we'll have a good season, but I'm not running out buying Vols SEC East Champion t-shirts just yet.

I rewatched the Game. The Vols defense is pretty awesome, holding OU to 3 points for 50 minutes. Losing Meggitt was a shot though.

The offense had it 17-0 with 12 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, and never sniffed again. I was just shocked. The field position was great too. Scoring anything wins that game. It was like watching the Florida game from last year.

UGA v. SC
Ole Miss v. Bama
LSU v. Auburn
GT v. Notre Dame
BYU v. UCLA

Oh and USC v. Stanford could be interesting if Stanford doesn't trip over their own dicks.

Ohio State is losing 10-3 in the 2nd quarter, courtesy of 3 turnovers, including 2 interceptions by the same damn guy.
NIU was feeling generous and gave one of those back, or it'd probably be 17-3.

Meyer has been talking up the Huskies all week, but I don't think he was expecting his own players to fuck up this much.

Cardale Jones is overthinking everything. I was afraid of this when he threw a TD pass against Va Tech and you could see Meyer got in his face for throwing it.

I think they're really missing Tom Herman right now. His playcalling was a little suspect last year but I think Warriner is in over his head.

Georgia beat the piss out of SC. Which is good. Very good.
LSU beat the piss out of Auburn. Which is also good. Very good.
Ole Miss is beating Bama at the half, which is hilarious because Bama has buttered the ball.

That may be. But, Warriner didn't turn the ball over 5 times.

I'll take the W in any case  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Arizona had a fun game against a glorified community college. Our 2nd string QB just ripped off two consecutive 70+ yard TDs.  awesome, for real

And the 3rd stringer just ran in a 43 yarder.  Yeesh.  Stop guys. Our defense did look pretty bad for the first 20 minutes of the game.  Then they remembered we're playing a team from Flagstaff.

That said, Oregon is done without Mariota.

Oh and it looks like Michigan is breaking back into the top 25 on Harbaugh's name alone because they certainly don't look great, but did win I guess.
