Then it was time for the wet self guided tour of Rice University. It can not be overstated, just how gorgeous this campus is. In my humble unscientific opinion, to date, this is the second most impressive campus behind only West Point.

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 »

North Carolina at South Carolina – I think everybody got what they expected in this game, at least on a team level. SC was never in jeopardy of losing, but did not quite dominate. The interesting note on this game was the reaction to the play of Jadeveon Clowney. I will reserve judgment until next week. He has earned a pass from me on this one. Let’s see how he plays against Georgia.
Ole Miss at Vanderbilt – This was every bit the game that I thought it would be. This back and forth game kept me awake and riveted. This game could springboard Ole Miss into a very successful season and the top recruiting classes they have brought in, could be as advertised. But it is only one … Read More »
