Pulling for the plucky Utah Utes.  Expectations are crazy high around these parts.  Utah's getting a lot of pre-season top 10 rankings and it's honestly sort of unnerving.  Hope they can play well as a favorite! 

We will learn a lot about the Utes after they open in Gainesville on Sep 3rd!

The thing I’m most excited about is that we will finally know who the highest played college player is. 
 

That’s exciting to me

Still on that elusive hunt for a 3 wood that I'm able to hit - I don't know why, I crush the 5 wood and it's really a 4 wood anyway.

Hoping my Mountaineers can win the Sun Belt this year! The conference has been tougher to win the last two years, so it will be fun to see what happens. The Heels come to Boone on 9/3, so it would be awesome to start the year with ANOTHER win against UNC, and stake claim as the best college football team in North Carolina AGAIN! 
 

My grad school, LSU, will be a curious watch this year as well. Can Brian Kelly stir-up some magic in his first year? Will they even compete for the SEC West? Not likely, but it’s going to be interesting to see the musical chairs with QBs. There are three good ones, so who ends-up the starter for the long haul is up-for-grabs.

Lastly, my childhood favorite, and my parents’ alma mater, Michigan State, is looking to show something again under “Tuck”. Last year they finished LAST in the COUNTRY in pass defense, literally 130 out of 130, but, hey, they beat the Wolverines AGAIN, and kept the Paul Bunyan trophy in East Lansing, so just a repeat of THAT would be great! I can’t STAND UofM, their fans, etc. Go GREEN!!!!!

The hype is as real as it gets for Ohio state this year. More than likely they will put up a million points with their offense. Might be the best qb and wr duo in the country. Just hope the defense can stop someone. Having a new defensive coordinator surely should help

Watched my boys play a scrimmage Saturday and we looked good. A lot different than in the past, but really good. Got to hang with them for a bit afterwards and looking forward to starting the Clay Helton era in 19 days! Hail Southern!

Really curious to see how much of a culture shift Lincoln Riley has been able to force in 9 months.  He brought in a lot of new guys and pushed out some others.  I just feel like the lack of discipline is going to take more time to fix.  Still, I have guarded hopes for this year for SC.  After last year there's a lot of room on the upside of the coin....

Michigan State, ranked 15, will be a better team this year but probably won’t have as good a record (11-2) as last year.  Could be as low as 8 wins, but more likely 9, possibly 10.  

Third game of season is at Wash, should be a win but we haven’t fared well in the west.  OSU is game 6 in East Lansing, and should be closer like 42-28 but OSU is still OSU.  

The skunk weasels of UM is week 8.  MSU is 10-4 for as long as the current players can remember, and in Ann Arbor this year, and so fun to break their hearts.  Last year, the Mich Attorney General  Nessel got so drunk at the game she had to be wheeled out of the stadium in a wheel chair. She drank bloody Mary’s and said she thought she was drinking the equivalent of a salad.  In Nessel's telling, before the game she attended a tailgate party, where she "thought it seemed like a good idea to eat two Bloody Mary’s, since as long as you put enough vegetables in them, it’s practically a salad," she wrote.

Yeah, another UM grad with a general studies degree. 

Payton Thorne is highly under rated, Jayden Reed is back, several really good looking portal transfers, including 2 RBs to replace KW3.  OL should be better but no depth. Defense will be better, excellent DL and LBs, and better playmakers to play 4-2-5, especially at nickelback. Finally, hired Brandon Jordan as pass rush coach who is the personal coach for over 100 NFL DLs.  MSU has granted him the ok to use MSU facilities to bring them in, which has lined up well with recruiting visits.

I was born in Traverse City and grew up in a split family of UM and MSU fans. Many of my cousins are Spartans, one or two are also Wolverines. When I was in my formidable ages (8-13 or so), I gravitated towards Michigan because of the quality of football and (and I loved the colors, logo, Hail to the Victors, etc.). I attended Miami, but still pay close attention to Big 10 football and greatly enjoy the Michigan-MSU rivalry. Many outside of the state do not realize the intensity of the rivalry (or Sparty’s inferiority/Napoleon complex 😉).

I'm excited and apprehensive at the same time.  If things go bad quickly, I might be switching to LIV 😬.  Depending on coverage, I might be watching LIV anyway 😆. Ohio State is probably still seething over last years lopsided loss to Alabama. I'd love to see my Irish get the upset win 🙏 but going 0-1 to the #2 team, who is also among my top 5 favorite teams, isn't the worst outcome.

I'll be sitting in Paulson Stadium in what looks to be the pouring rain, watching my Eagles begin a new era. If we don't dominate Morgan State it's gonna be rough.
