New topic….for programs that may not get enough posts, comments, or attention to be in their own topic.
I have seen a couple of these guest speakers talking to the kids on the Alabama football team. Kudos to Coach Saban for bringing some special people in to talk to his teams. Even though I am not much of an NBA fan, I do love the show on TNT with Ernie and the crew. Take some time if you have not yet, and look up Ernie Johnson. He is an inspiring individual. But this story his shares takes that to a whole new level.

A few ranked teams seem to be struggling early. Loved seeing the Ducks win in Columbus. Number 5 Texas A&M hangs on in Denver to beat unranked Colorado. The Irish have their own thread so won't discuss their struggle here. 

As we likely know though; any team in the top ten who is not Alabama, is just fighting for the chance to have their butts kicked by Bama.

I was not shocked to see Ohio State go down as I consider them a work in progress.   They still could run the table and have an outside shot to make the CFP, but I think Penn State has the B1G’s best chance behind Iowa.

Good to see a coach take ownership

 

 

Eh, he is being too hard on himself and this is classic coach speak to protect his kids.  While I respect it, two tipped passes that turned into INT’s and a scoop and score were clearly the difference in this game.

Ties into my other thread about Iowa being overrated and a huge pretender.

Two weeks in a row they capitalized (no discredit intended to them even though I am sure that is how this comes across to some) on poor QB play to propel themselves to victory.

I understand it’s what great teams do as their DL was dominant but banking on that sort of stuff all season seems a bit far fetched.

Plus Ferentz is usually good for a couple of head scratchers per year.

9-3?  Sure.

Top 5/title contender?  No way.

As for Campbell, he’d be one of the first dudes I reached out to if I were USC.

Thoughts after 3 weeks? Oklahoma barely gets past Nebraska, Clemson barely gets past Georgia Tech, Florida stands toe to toe with Alabama. Penn st and Michigan off to good starts too.

Penn State was lucky to get that win.

I’m thinking it will be James Franklin.
