After the game, it was off to Gatlin’s BBQ for some local food, a place that came very highly recommended. We arrived at Gatlin’s and the line was out the door, but that is not unusual since it is a small place.

A look back at Week 3 of the college football season.
1. Ok, I was wrong. The schedule appeared light, but three Top 25 teams lost to unranked opponents; USC, Virginia Tech, and Louisville. Additionally, UCLA barely escaped against a down Texas team. Further, the only match-up of Top 25 teams was a good one as South Carolina beat Georgia. I think both of those teams have some work to do on defense. I believe that I wrote…I don’t see any other game where a Top 25 team is challenged with the possible exception of East Carolina at Virginia Tech. Not exactly on the nose, but I did allude to one of the upsets, so at least there is that.
2. Did Vanderbilt really have to rally with two TD’s in the 4Q, the second coming with … Read More »

Everyone has their predictions, so why not me as well? I’m going to take a different spin on things, adding a little CollegeFootballQuest flavoring to my mix on some of them, and of course, not pick this years champion:
Charlie Weis has to go. I am not sure how you win no games and keep your job. I feel like he hasn’t won a game since 2010 (I could be exaggerating). There just seems like there is no plan there, similar to when Don Maloney took over the Islanders. You have three must win games out of the gate that he will lose 2 of, and then host Texas. September 29th he will have a tee time on the Blue Course at Doral. I just can’t see this going any other way. Yes, and I compared him to Maloney.

Want To Be Part Of and Help Us With “The Quest”????
I have to admit, we have a great time on The Quest!! What’s not to like about college football games, big time football fans, tailgating, cheerleaders, new locations, rivalries, touring campuses and facilities, food challenges, LaGuardia Airport…ok well maybe not LaGuardia Airport, but the list is endless for an opportunity to experience all that is good about college football!!
We get asked while on every trip “how can we be part of your Quest”? Of course by then it is almost too late. So here’s how. If we are coming to your school, we’d love to talk to you and learn anything and everything there is to know about your school and program! You’ll probably even get quote and a picture on our Trip Report page, if that … Read More »

Oklahoma at Baylor – Thursday night gets going with the nation’s number one offense in Baylor against the staunch defense of the Sooners. Baylor has the #1 offense and #6 defense in terms of points. But a quick look at the Baylor schedule shows that output came against very weak competition. This is the first game of a five game gauntlet against Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Ok St, TCU and Texas. We will finally see if Baylor belongs at the elite level. The Sooners come in 7-1 with the single blemish being against Texas. In my view this game comes down to can the Sooners slow down the Bears offense. They don’t need to stop it, just slow it down. Vegas doesn’t think this game will be very close. … Read More »
