I watched Tom Brady for twenty years and that pretty much spoiled me for anything else. 

Now, without Brady and Gronk, we don't have much to see there, either.

Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins are all pretty useless right now.

Y'know, there's this older dude who used to post here a lot about Brady and Gronk and how football was worthless nowadays without them in New England, and all the other pro sports teams up here were bunk. I bet you guys would get along great. Haven't seen him in a little bit though. Maybe he'll chime in sometime soon...

I don’t believe ANY rankings that will be used to establish which teams play in the playoffs should come-out before week 4, even week 5. Certain schools start the year at the top and have a distinct advantage. If THEY lose once, early, they don’t drop much, and then work their way back within a couple weeks. Another school may drop 10-15 spots and lose any chance of getting back.

When I was a boy, my Grandfather said I should root for two teams, U of Kentucky and anyone playing Notre Dame!

Except for in Louisiana, we ethnic Catholics made quite the impression in the old South.

And Kentucky wasn't even in the Confederacy!

 

Anyway, I used to blame it on being Catholic, that is, but I was completely wrong.

As an adult secular humanist, I'm still without any fans down there.

Man, what a sad, and very odd, pair of events in the PAC12 yesterday evening 🙁. Texting with our part time neighbor, who is a WSU fan, he informed me of the shooting.  Then, while reading about it, I see the news of the same thing happening to a Utah player... the teams played yesterday.

Awful, I saw that he (Aaron Lowe) was the first recipient of the Ty Jordan Memorial Scholarship, the Utah player who was accidentally shot last year. Aaron and Ty were also best friends... terrible

Who are your biggest surprise teams this year?

Good surprise: Arkansas and BYU

Bad surprise: Spencer Rattler, Clemson, Texas A&M's lack of QB depth.

I'm surprised that we (Clemson, if it wasn't obvious enough) are still in the top 25 after the 💩 we've put on display for an offense.

ACC been bad for quite a few years, but luckily they've had Clemson running the table to keep them relevant. People been talking down the PAc12 for the same amount of time. And maybe over the last 3-4 seasons they don't have a team as good as Clemson but i'd take the top half of the PAc12 over the #2 ACC team

Throw the Big 12 in the mix of mediocrity disguised by one or two good teams. I don't see the Big 12 having a CFP rep this year. OU's defense is going to lose them 2-3 games this year. UT is way too inconsistent. Iowa St is already out of the running. Baylor may surprise some teams this year but the lack of depth at OL, LB and DL means we're one or two injuries away from turning a potentially great season into just a decent one.

Hoping that my alma mater--who is undefeated in the ACC, but also hasn't yet played a conference game 😬--can beat the Wahoos tonight to launch an ACC title-run. 🙈🤞

The ACC is bad this year, hopefully we can take advantage of that...

I honestly didn't think we'd get by Wisconsin (there was the Coan unfinished business factor though).  Hopefully they play as well against Cincinnati... they'll need to as the Bearcats are for real.

Bad surprise: Spencer Rattler,

Still too early to tell.  I think Spencer is suffering from media over-hype, unrealistic expectation-itis.  Personally I think he has Mahomes like traits and will settle into becoming a top 5 QB. If OU dosen't work out he can head to South Bend 👍

Getting ready for Cincinnati to the be the best team in your conference???? Right Oklahoma is pretty good but not great, but they have good chance of running the table. This week's visit to KSU will tell us a lot. And Texas, oh Texas....good luck in the SEC next year you're gonna need it.

Can’t wait To see the lack of planning heading into Madison this weekend.  Hopefully it involved some passes.

I thought I saw Cade throw a one or two last week. In all seriousness, I think Harbaugh will continue to largely run opponents into the ground as long as it is working with opportune passes here and there.

Unless there's chaos. There would need to be 2+ 2-loss of the power 5 champions or be the only undefeated school. I don't think it's right, but that's how college works. Then they'll make it next year as Big 12 champ.
