Upon arrival at UCF the first thing that was highly noticeable was….students! On many of these trips we walk around campus wondering where all the students are. Well, we found them and they all go to UCF.

Rutgers at Louisville – This is the first game of the back to back gauntlet that will define the Cardinals season. This week Rutgers, next week UCF. These are the toughest games on the Cards schedule. And they are 19 point favorites. Nice schedule if you can get it.
Oregon at Washington – The Huskies are coming off a close loss to Stanford. Oregon is Oregon. I am a believer in the Huskies and this game is at home so that helps. But they are not in the Ducks class yet. But they are heading up, so I do not expect the Ducks to be up by 50 at the half as is the norm. But the Huskies do not have the horses to win this game.

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 »
Date: June 26, 2013 | First up on the list of new venues, the boys take a trip almost as far west as they will travel over the lifetime of this Quest, to Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon, home of the Ducks. This will be the first Pac-12 game they have been to. Both are looking forward to seeing if the reality of Autzen lives up to the hype as one of the best college football venues in the nation.

Rutgers today has announced a change of school motto from “Sol iustitiae et occidentem illustra”, which means “Sun of righteousness, shine upon the West also” to “Stultus est sicut stultus facit”, which means “stupid is as stupid does.”
Rutgers is attempting to demonstrate it can be as stubborn as a brick wall that you are trying to win an argument against, or in other words, my eleven year old daughter. And Rutgers is doing a great job of it.
Rutgers incoming Athletic Director Julie Hermann addressed the media yesterday and showed such skill at avoiding the relevant topic, that Chris Christie is considering nominating her to the Senate. Where to being picking apart this disaster of a hire and the ongoing disaster at Rutgers?
Ok, let’s start at the top. Rutgers President Robert Barchi is clearly trying to … Read More »

The College Football Quest machine has been hard at work the past few weeks making all the travel arrangements that go into our quest schedule. Once the games are selected, I get right to work trying to secure our travel arrangements. Sometimes this goes smoothly, other times, not so much. But other than Al booking a hotel for the wrong day, nothing has very seriously gone wrong….yet!
Tennessee @ Florida – September 21
There is no harder travel reservation to get than a hotel room in Gainesville. Since this is an annual trip we book a hotel in mid season for the following season. Hotel is booked. Flights to Jacksonville are also secured as is a rental car. Jacksonville is the preferred airport for the trip to Gainesville but cost often overrides and we typically end up … Read More »
The stadium was a great atmosphere to see a game. It is a very nice stadium that can get absurdly loud. Louisville earns the 16-14 victory, as Al misses a chance to gain ground in our game picking contest.
