Well boys the season has officially begun. A couple of things. I was disappointed in USC. Yes I know they killed SJSU, but the first quarter was shaky. Hopefully (or not)first game jitters and not a sign of whats to come. By that I mean complacency against teams considered inferior.

How did OSU let Navy stay so close? I mean seriously, four point game against a service academy? Not what I expect from a team ranked sixth.

The Crimson Tide passed their first test this year with a win against Virginia Tech. A tough game to start the year with. They are going to have to watch for the big play.

I would mention BC's game (if you can call it that) but when you put up 21 in the first quarter, the game is over.

Game of the week this week has to go to BYU and Oklahoma. Good game, that came down to a missed fieldgoal. Tough luck for Oklahoma.

The Crimson Tide had me a bit worried in the first quarter, but then settled down a bit. Isolated mistakes and loss of poise late in the first half hurt the defense that played well throughout the remainder of the game.

The offense was shakey at the start but got going well later in the game. A fumble after a long run likely cost them at least 3 points, plus the offense sat on the ball with over 2 minutes to go instead of trying to push it in for another score.

As a non American, I have to say, a good few years ago I got into what we call over here "American football". At the time I never had so much fun in my life. I played with the nearest team, the Dundee whalers. The training was hard but kept me very fit, but the plays, codes and my particular favourite, sacking the QB was just fun. Several work colleagues used to take the mickey about it, until one lunchtime I asked them to partake in a little QB, centre, wide reciever, nose tackle and safety. Ended up all grass stains over our suits, but we never laughed so much.

Great sport, miss watching it.:D

College teams don't get a pre-season. I cut them some slack for shaky first games but I give a lot of credit to the teams that do not schedule creampuffs. Of course, I really wanted to see the Midshipmen pull out that game!

The Crimson Tide passed their first test this year with a win against Virginia Tech. A tough game to start the year with. They are going to have to watch for the big play.

I would mention BC's game (if you can call it that) but when you put up 21 in the first quarter, the game is over.


BC had no opposition. My fear is that they did not throw the ball at all against a very weak Div I-AA team. Does not bode well for their Red Shirt Freshman QB. I miss Matt Ryan!

Game of the week this week has to go to BYU and Oklahoma. Good game, that came down to a missed fieldgoal. Tough luck for Oklahoma.


I feel bad for that kicker!

Miami’s 38-34 win over Florida State on Monday probably made the ACC a bit more competitive internally, great game no matter which team won. Reminded me of the ’87 (?) game where it was decided on a missed two-point conversion on the last play by FSU. Also a great game.

Happy Trails,
Clint.

I'm looking forward to Nov.7 Penn State vs. Ohio State (in Happy Valley), perhaps for Big Ten title, and who knows, a shot at the National Championship.

Hi Lou. You and me both. I'm still trying to decide if I am willing to pay 2-3 times ticket price for a chance to go. I wouldn't hold my breath on a National Championship. Everyone will point to a weak Big 10 and give the benefit of the doubt to a one loss team like USC or Florida before they send a team with a weak non-conference schedule. I think the best we can hope for is a top 5 finish.

The Crimson Tide started slowly but got on a roll, winning 40-14.

Troy kept it close with Florida, relatively speaking, only losing by 50.

Ohio State choked in the end.

Bright spots of the day, Tennessee and Notre Dame lost.

Big weekend for college football.

First Ohio State. USC did not win this game, OSU lost it. Some time control issues at the end of the first half followed by a state of content in the fourth quarter.

Notre Dame never should have lost that game. Good on Michigan though following last years dismal season.

Way to go Houston. They started strong and never looked back. A great win for the program.

I'm looking forward to Thursday. A great game linned up between Georgia Tech and Miami.

You got to hand it to Florida. That out-of-league schedule of theirs is brutal.:rolleyes: Troy, Charleston Southern, Florida International, and finally, one that's decent, Florida State. I'm wondering when was the last time Florida played outside of either it's league or state at a big-time school. No trips to California, Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Oklahoma, or even Oregon for them.

My Buckeyes choked that's for sure, but hey, at least they opened up the schedule with 2 bowl teams from the previous year in the first 2 games. Not many schools do that.

First Ohio State. USC did not win this game, OSU lost it. Some time control issues at the end of the first half followed by a state of content in the fourth quarter.


Are you serious?! SC's defense held TP and the OSU offense to 90+ yards of offense after the first quarter! 90+ yards in three quarters combined! You only had 10 first downs compared to 18 for SC. SC had 118 rushing yards compared to OSU's 88 and SC lead in TOP 32:27 to OSU's 27:33. Barkley also threw for more yards than Pryor. The only stat OSU lead in was punting......But hey according to Rick Neuhisel punting is winning.....

Oh yeah.....maybe if OSU had a coach that had 'sack' maybe the final score could have been different.

OSU had everything going for it to win this game...it was at the 'Shoe', Pryor's second year in the system, Freshman QB starting for the first time on the road and supposedly a "rebuilding year" for the Trojans.....and they still lost....face it Bucknut fans...your team and conference is slow...plain and simple.

Yes, I am.;)


SC's defense held TP and the OSU offense to 90+ yards of offense after the first quarter! 90+ yards in three quarters combined! You only had 10 first downs compared to 18 for SC.

OK. USC had a total of 6 rushing yards at the end of the first quarter. You took the ball to the 3 yard line and was only able to punch it in on fourth down. 12 total yards of first quarter offense, and I'm not counting lost yardage from penalties. Thats never a good way to start the game, whoever you are. So as you can see these "stats" are usually negligible.

SC had 118 rushing yards compared to OSU's 88 and SC lead in TOP 32:27 to OSU's 27:33. Barkley also threw for more yards than Pryor. The only stat OSU lead in was punting......But hey according to Rick Neuhisel punting is winning.....

see above

Oh yeah.....maybe if OSU had a coach that had 'sack' maybe the final score could have been different.

So why are you contradicting my opinion of the game. Like I said, bad clock management at the end of the first half, and a lackadaisical performance in the fourth quarter.

OSU had everything going for it to win this game...it was at the 'Shoe', Pryor's second year in the system, Freshman QB starting for the first time on the road and supposedly a "rebuilding year" for the Trojans.....and they still lost....

So like I said, OSU lost the game, they more gave it to USC than USC earned it.

face it Bucknut fans...your team and conference is slow...plain and simple.

When have I stated I'm a Buckeye fan? I would appreciate a more pragmatic approach to this thread. No one has slammed any other teams here.

I have no problems with your favorite team, in fact I make it a point to follow the teams of people who post here (within this thread) consistently.

Forgive my debate...I will not let it happen again. I took exception to the "SC did not win" comment and listed my reasons as to why I did not agree with your assessment. You also assume that when I said Bucknut fans I was talking to you.

Anyways, let's not ruin this topic on what is the best sport in this or any land! I'll be in Seattle this Saturday cheering on my Trojans!

Fight On! & Beat the Dawgs!
