    ClemPson very well could be 0-1 right now if Gus Malzahn were a better coach and could adjust to the game situation the way FSU coaches did against Ole Miss on Monday night. His O went into the red zone 4 times and he refused to kick a FG the first three, and only scored one TD on those trips. It was stupid because the game turned out to be something that few expected, which was a low scoring affair greatly restrained by defense. Every point counted in the situation at hand, but he stuck with the preconceived notion he was in a high scoring match-up, failed to revise his perception to the reality at hand, and kept rolling the dice on the TD. If he had scored the points, AU would have had a lead, ClemPson's hand may have been forced, and the game might have turned out differently.

    Well he was pretty successful last night!
    Lamar Jackson ran up 610 yards of offense and blew away my Orange.
    Based on what I saw last night, they might be a contender.
    Let's see how they do against the Seminoles next weekend.

    Dented, you from the 'cuse?

    Darn it. Louisville just waxed my Syracuse boys! That QB Jackson is outstanding. He has some tougher programs to play against down the road but hats off to Louisville for the lesson we got.

    Maryland Terrapins 2-0 against Maryland School for the Blind and Delaware Music & Arts Academy.
    I wish they would play some REAL non-conference competition going into the 2016 Big Ten season?

    Meant to watch but was under the weather. Born and raised about 18 miles from the Speedway.

    That said, both programs are shadows of their former greatness.

    Don't know who I would pull for anyway. Lifelong UT fan but my nephew just graduated from VT.

    Louisville is hot. Hard for me because I am a lifelong fan and local but can't stand Petrino.

    I am gonna watch some college ball this season.

    I have plenty of freed up time now, since I obviously won't be watching the NFL. Goodell is worthless and clearly the average NFL player is just not bright.

    Louisville won't have their way against FSU.

    Or Clemson.

    No one brought it up, but the latter part of the Arkansas-TCU game was nuts, and fairly exciting.

    Who the heck would allow the kicker to kick to a return man like Turpin? The coaches totally screwed up there.

    That game was a hoot. I pull for Arkansas in a casual way, my Dad was born there and we have extended family still there. I'm sure it was a pressure cooker for hardcore fans of both teams.
    Kicking to that guy had to be a mistake, he proved why he was known a big play maker.

    That needs explanation?

    Many of them (and other pro athletes) clearly have very poor character and work daily to impeach the platitudes (about building discipline, character, maturity, etc.) used to justify young Americans spending so much time on school sports versus academics.

    Doctors, engineers, actors, athletes, accountants, musicians, plumbers, bankers.... good and bad in all of those career fields. I bet even some lawyers are scumbags.

    You enjoy college football, as do I... surely you don't look up to them collectively as some sort of moral compass for our kids? Especially the coaches, they're first rate.

    The majority of NFL players (and pro athletes in general) are likely decent people who have worked hard to get where they are and are thankful for the opportunities they have. And I'd predict that their conduct (illegal and/or immoral) is statistically no worse than the rest of society

    If you choose to believe differently, that's your issue not mine.

    I forgot about the Houston-Cincinatti game last night and got preoccupied with other things. I heard today that Cincy hung in there for 3 quarters and a little more but fell apart in the 4th. Houston's D had two straight pick-six TD's.

    Cincy had a couple of key takeaways that kept them not only in the game, but gave them a second half lead. It was one of those odd games where your team seems to be dominating but are down on the scoreboard.

    I'm not usually into football or crowds but my daughter wants to go to a Badgers game in a big way. I've got what should be good tickets. I'm not completely sure why this is so important to her but she's a super kid - really - so here goes. I think she wants to do what she knows a lot of people are into and catch the famous band 5th quarter.

    It's a REALLY big thing around here. UW is where I graduated. At 10th grade I suppose it's for her to think about college as more than you're life might stink with out graduating from one.

    So what's everybody's predictions on the Florida State / Louisville game ?

    I say FSU by 17 pts.

    I'm not even sure about that now.

    I guess Louisville is for real.
