    Ahh yes the infamous crappy week 2 of college football. At least we had a couple good games today though.

    Packers hold on to win today. One down, 18 to go.

    What an ugly win for the Ravens. The Bills practically handed that one to us and the refs threw us penalty yards left and right. We should be doing better against such a mediocre team if we're making the playoffs this year.

    Well, after looking solid against UNC, UGA just laid an egg against Nicholls. Eason played pretty well given the circumstances, but the O-line was the worst I think I've seen them in years. Poor Chubb could hardly get to the line before getting hit by at least two defenders at times. Say what you want about Mark Richt not winning enough big games, but at least you rarely had to worry about him losing the really small ones. Hopefully this is just another case of a team looking too far ahead and taking a weak opponent for granted (which seems to be happening a lot this season).

    The Arkansas vs TCU game was especially good. Those last few minutes onward had me on the edge of my seat. I was a little disappointed in the "Battle at Bristol" game, though. VA Tech started out good and then just fell apart after the first quarter. Not to take anything away from Tennessee, but it's not too hard to look dominant when the other team gives you 3 fumbles in the span of about 4 minutes.

    Meanwhile SDSU knocked off Cal. They are now media darlings in the state of California for beating one of the state's "Big Four" which also includes Stanford, UCLA and USC.

    It's cool to see Michigan #4 in the AP Poll, but they need to play a good team first. I hate being that guy, but Hawaii and UCF aren't good teams. Next week Colorado should be a better test for Michigan, and then Penn State comes to the Big House. They're coming off a loss against Pittsburgh. Then the following week Wisconsin comes to town. That game right there will really show us where Michigan stands so far.

    Did anyone catch the ending of that Raiders/Saints game? The Raiders went for two and won. Now that's gutsy!

    Some things I had expected to happen in the season openers got turned on their heads. I expected big things from Ezekiel Elliott, among others, and I was disappointed in his debut. Not to say he won't improve, I just think I overhyped him in my head and was looking for one of his explosive OSU games.

    If I had to pinpoint any one problem with his playing today, it would be his lack of patience. He could take note from other strong rushers such as Le'Veon Bell and David Johnson.

    Even Shane Vereen showed me some groundwork I wasn't expecting, all due to his patience.

    Zeke has the vision and agility to get past the line, he just needs to wait for the right opportunity. Today, I only saw that once or twice.

    How 'bout them Chiefs? They looked like crap for the first half, then looked unstoppable after. I thought about turning the game off at half because I did expect them to lose. However, I did pick up Spencer Ware for my fantasy team, and man did he produce.

    If they can keep performing how they did in the second half of that game, especially Alex Smith, I think they could really be a force this year.

    As much as I like the Chiefs and want them to go places, I just don't see them as a team that goes all the way. They remind me of the Cardinals and the Bengals in that way. Solid squads with potential, but they just can't close out a season.

    The Chiefs are an above average team that's hampered by Andy Reid's love of the 10 minute drill.

    Chiefs will be a perennial playoff team with Smith at the helm. But they need a bit more..."explosion"? to make a playoff run. Then again the Broncos were able to win the SB last year, so it's more than possible.

    Carson wentz had a great first career game even if it was against the browns. They are still an nfl defense. The eagles defense also did good. They play the bears next week and have a good chance to win that too.

    Jamaal Charles healthy is their biggest hope, I think. Otherwise, I don't see them making it. They could, sure, but I don't expect it from what I've seen from them.

    Well the giant won which while good we definitely didn't look good while doing it and our defense and offense line need some work.

    An RGIII-less Cleveland should be a good game for the Ravens to shake the rust off next Sunday, we really need it. Our O-Line really needs to play better for us to be remotely competitive.

    It was nice to see the Lions win. Normally the Lions fold like a lawn chair in close games like that. A win is a win and I'll take it.

    Wow, RGIII is already injured. I feel bad for the guy. He can never seem to stay healthy.

    No Brady, no problem. The Patriots beat the Cardinals with Garoppolo at the helm.

    And by the 49ers of all teams. Yeah, I can definitely see Fisher being fired if they have another losing season this year.

    Didn't even notice that a new thread got started here, though not like the old one seems to live through off season.

    NFL wise:
    My Colts opened up in a loss, honestly with the lack of depth on our defense, and still trying to find an O-Line formation that works, I wouldn't mind seeing us not do well just to get a good drafting spot next year, work out on getting some potential good talent to rebuild that defense. A lot of teams week 1 really gave up lots of points this week. Kind of sucks for most/all FF Defenses, but for all the other positions I won week 1 in all 3 of my leagues so lol, at least I got something good out of week 1. Week 2 we're at Denver, and I'm not expecting us to win this one either.

    College Football:
    Nebraska plays Oregon right now, and it's time to get a strong win after getting our cupcake beatings out of the way like we should. This season should be doing our best for our Sammy boy. It honestly hurts losing a friend that you went to high school as well as graduated with, and have known for a decent amount of time now, especially when you were looking forward to his senior season. I'm hoping the guys do the best they can to get a good record and into a good bowl game this year all for Sam, I hope we don't regress randomly like we're used to, it'd leave a bad taste in my mouth to see that. So, let's hope we can see a win and go 3-0 to start our season.

    Nebraska just beat Oregon 35-32! Good, hard fought game honestly. There were multiple times I saw where they would give some large run room because the D-Line fell apart or got held out, and it just scared me that full on drive stops could have been given new life multiple times. Just pretty scary, but we won, and that's what matters.

    Brady Hoke losing another B1G game? What's new.

    Seriously though, does Oregon always go for 2 point conversions after every TD? I thought it was only after the first TD, and then normal single point PATs. Like they literally lost by 3 by missing 4 two-point conversions, lol....


    That Michigan game was ugly. Credit to the team and coaches for getting back into the game after being down 7-21. Good teams always find a way to win. Jabrill Peppers is such a beast. If the Colorado QB hadn't gotten injured, I think it would have been a one-possession or 10 point win. Maybe Colorado is actually a good team, but the boys got to play better. But it's a test of adversity that was overcome.


    Anyway, I think Louisville should be ranked #1 in the country. That was a massacre over FSU.

    Ugly win for Michigan, but I'll take it. It just took them a while to wake up. Colorado came to play. They seem much improved.

    Wow, Iowa lost to North Dakota State
    Wisconsin sqeaked by lowly Georgia State
    Western Michigan beat up Illinois

    Florida State got vanquished by Louisville.

    Louisville gaining the #1 ranking would be a huge accomplishment for a program that only 15 years ago was considered a mid-major playing in C-USA (where they actually won a "mid-major national title" in 2001 by being the highest-ranked non-AQ team in the final polls)
