Week 3 2014 Preview – Pondering the Future

Random thoughts on the upcoming weekend of college football.

1. If you thought last week’s schedule was light, check out this week. Only one game between Top 25 teams…Georgia at South Carolina. 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 good. Maybe it is a good weekend to score some points with the significant other….nah, bad games are still better than the mall.

2. Syracuse at Central Michigan – First, how is this game in Mt. Pleasant? Second, would you believe that these teams enter the game undefeated. Yup, it is true. That is about the only thing about this game that I find intriguing.

3. Massachusetts at Vanderbilt – One of these … Read More »


The Week that Was – Recap of Week 2 2014

1. I thought I was off to a good week, with the UTSA Roadrunners taking the Arizona Wildcats to the wire as I expected. Arizona was fortunate to get the win in this game. I still am waiting to understand how UTSA got this game at home.

2. The Pitt Panthers can run the ball…very well. They will be a force in the ACC Coastal, especially since North Carolina is not as good as I thought, at least at this point in the season. The Coastal is clearly the step sister to the Atlantic, but Pitt will make noise if they continue to run the ball this well.

3. The Cornhuskers got very lucky to beat McNeese State. If only the Cowboys could tackle with their arms instead of shoulders, that game was in … Read More »

Random thoughts on the upcoming weekend of college football.

1. The week gets off to a Thursday start with Arizona at UTSA. First, is there a better nickname in college sports than the Roadrunners, maybe only Coastal Carolina (google it). Second, this game is being played at UTSA. How did they manage to get Arizona to come to them? Third, Larry Coker (UTSA HC) has more seniors and returning starters than any other school. The Wildcats will probably be tested tonight. I would keep this game on rotation with the Green Bay vs. Seattle game.

2. On Friday we will see if the Pittsburgh Panthers rushing attack will be as impressive against an FBS school. It looked mighty impressive against Delaware, but BC is in a different league, literally. If … Read More »


Week 2 Preview

Ugggh! I cannot remember a weekend with such a poor lineup of games. This would have been a good weekend for a quest trip, except for the fact that one of the three games worth mentioning is Florida at Miami. So instead, I am home with a stinker of a lineup. But at least the three games worth watching are on at noon, 4:30 and 8:00.

Florida Gators at Miami Hurricanes

My Florida Gators travel to Sun Life Stadium to take on the Miami Hurricanes. Rumor has it that the game is sold out. It is probably the first sell out for the Canes since the last time the Gators were in town, which I think was 2003. Oh wait, FSU goes there too. So they sell out only against Florida and … Read More »


Week 1 Recap

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 »


College Football – My Take Aways from Week #1

3rd September

Posted: September 3, 2013

Greetings, and glad the season has finally begun….and begun I mean all the Monday (or Tuesday) morning quarterbacking can begin. I’m probably as good at this, as I am making my weekly picks in our pool. So I am going to take a different spin on it this year. My take away blog will not result in an updated poll, or positional rank of teams….but will just be some random (and in some cases, deep) thoughts. Here goes:

First and foremost, my currently living situation does not have a large enough TV to watch football, nor does the acoustics of the room do the sport any justice. I have made a note that my new man cave (coming to a theatre near you on September 15th), will take care of both. It will also include a fully functioning … Read More »
