Your game day post, Week Zero edition

There’s college football today!  Yay!

Did I mention there’s college football today?  Here’s the slate of games:

There’s something for everybody there, from a full-blown conference meeting between Nebraska and Northwestern, to some very late night Hawai’i action (if nothing else, Vanderbilt gets a nice trip out of it).

What catches your eye there, or is it simply a case of being satisfied there’s college football again?

        If USC fired Clay Helton when they should have, I REALLY would have been right-on.

        But yeah, I knew that asshole wouldn’t last longer than a year in Jacksonville. However, I would hazard a guess that most people here would have bet on the same thing, too.

    Today is like a man that is starving to death that gets some gruel that will help him survive. Next week we get the filet mignon with all the trimmings and a fine wine to whet our appetite.

    Jacksonville State is on ESPN at 3:30. Rick Rodriquez is their coach. Dude was a hot commodity at one time.

    I’ll watch some of the Nebraska game and probably tune in later to see if FSU shits the bed. Other than that, nothing too exciting on today. Good day to cut the grass later so I don’t have to do it next Saturday!

    Do people in Europe pay attention to CFB? I’m surprised the NFL has games over there, is our football really that popular?

  16. Apparently, Nebraska is still terrible on defense. Just let a Northwestern receiver go completely uncovered for a TD. High school level incompetence on display here.

    Just a little appetizer. Next week my best friend and our ole ladies go to Vegas for opening day. Be in the sports book all weekend. We did that for 15 years before the pandemic. Will be nice to get back.

    Anybody else catch the goat rodeo that was Gameday this morning? Pollack was at HD HQ in Vinings, and everybody else was remote. Did they have a Rona outbreak that caused them to not be together. With the amount of $ that Mickey puts into CFB it was an absolute amateur looking train wreck.

      What’s worse was Corso. He was really bad last year… I could barely understand him this morning. He needs to step away. It’s just sad at this point.

      As for Des… cocaine is a helluva drug.

    Really? You’re going to preempt a 17-14 real CFB game (that has been fairly entertaining) for the fucking Falcons pre-game show and preseason game???

    Our local media are the biggest fucktards.

    Huskers blew two double-digit leads and lost by three to a NW team that won five games last season. But hey, at least Frost is doing his best Harsin imitation by ‘crushing it’ in the weight room with his players. https://omaha.com/sports/college/huskers/blogs/bigred/in-the-weight-room-huskers-see-big-gains-and-scott-frost-is-there-crushing-it/article_f36878b1-cf90-5334-b4d7-6921ba24d942.html

      Corch,
      I wouldn’t disagree with your assessment of his coaching abilities,. He probably has done one thing right. His go away fee is better than ours. 🥃

        Pay me $5M a year to average 4-8 seasons for five years and then pay me $7.5M to go away.

        CFB P5 Coaching is the biggest pyramid scheme in the world, with Agents at the top, Coaches on the second level, Administrations on the third level, and us simps who donate money at the bottom as we happily prop-up the entire enterprise.

      They are gonna kill his ass for that onside kick with the lead!

      • Illini84

        Ryan Hilinski threw for 314 yards and two touchdowns to help Northwestern rally to a victory in the season opener before 42,699 fans at Aviva Stadium in the Irish capital.

        Frost took the blame for a failed onside kick that changed the momentum of the game in the third quarter.

        “I made that call so that’s on me,” Frost said of the decision after the Huskers took a 28-17 lead. “At that point in the game, I thought all the momentum was on our side. I thought if we got it, we could end the game.

        “You can’t really foresee them scoring 14 straight and us sputtering after we played well to start the second half on offense. Again those are excuses. If I had (to do) it over, I wouldn’t make the call.”

        He gone. Only question is, does it happen after 01-Oct-22 when his buyout gets cut in half, or do they keep him through the end of the season because he’s a “favored son?”

        If I were Alberts, who is a guy I really like and whom I think will be a great AD, you fire him immediately following the game the week his buyout goes fro $15M to $7.5M, and then you work like a devil to get a coach signed in the next month so they can work on recruiting because of the early signing day.

        Just another reason to revamp the recruiting calendar and get rid of early and late signing day, and simply have signing day happen the week after the National Championship. So, between the 15 and 20th of January or so.

    Apparently defense is optional in this CLT-FAU game. Plus, these games are pretty interesting to see where a lot of these players turned up, Hellinski (from Sackerlina) to NW, N’kosi Perry (from Miami) to FAU, and probably more that I missed.

      Hellinski actually looked pretty good today. It was against Nebraska so you can’t really judge it. Northwestern appears to be back to being a team that is gritty and can give some of the big boys fits on any given day.
