Thursday morning buffet

Indulge yourselves.

  • As the Auburn-Louisville game in Atlanta approaches, prepare to hear more of this.
  • Regrets, Gene Chizik has a few.
  • Mark Schlabach predicts this is Steve Spurrier’s last season.
  • Delusional optimism, And The Valley Shook style.
  • Kids, these days.
  • Spurrier, on Finebaum“Every now and then when I listen in to your show, I know the SEC fans are a little upset at Ohio State’s schedule and rightfully so to tell you the truth.” 
  • We’ve known Bobby Petrino’s an ambitious dick.  We just didn’t know how far back that went. “He opted to join the Tigers without informing his boss, Tom Coughlin, who was alerted of his offensive coordinator’s departure through an Auburn news release.”  And so, a legend was born.
  • Les Miles overdosed on coffee this week?  Sure, I can see that.

Oh, it’s on now.

D-1 football kicks off tonight at 6 PM, with North and South Carolina meeting, so it’s time to dust off one of my favorite clips to celebrate the start of another season.

As I said when I posted it last year, “A Brit who knows next to nothing about the sport, two programs I don’t care about and I still love that clip.”

If you’re not smiling at least a little right now, I don’t know what to tell you.

Gary Danielson is rounding into mid-season form.

Grumble, grumble” I’ve been a bit dismayed that the Heisman now goes to best spread quarterback in college football. That’s who wins it almost every year.”

Okay, so maybe I was a little surprised he accepted the premise of Ohio State as the number one team in the country without quibbling.  Of course, he could be just biding his time with that.

“How do you figure out if a kid wiIl translate to a two- or three-year starter as a college quarterback?”

Um… don’t you just look at who had the best stats at G-Day?

Evidently there’s more to it than that.  Who could have known?

And, lo, there was college football. And it was good.

Georgia won’t get going for another week, but that doesn’t mean today isn’t a good day.

Your favorite team probably doesn’t kick off until September 5 (or if you’re lucky, September 3). But your eyes should turn to Missoula, Montana this Saturday, August 29, for the true start of the season.

North Dakota State takes on Montana in the newly annual FCS Kickoff game, showcasing the best college football’s second tier has to offer. And this really is the best it has to offer, at least on one side. Montana has a fascinating new coach and hopes of getting back amongst the FCS elite, and North Dakota State is a true dynasty, a four-time championship steamroller that would look at home in the FBS.

We don’t get many opportunities to witness the power of a fully operational battle station. Here’s why you should watch NDSU try to blow up a planet at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Say no more, right?

It’s gonna be a long season.

I always hope when I see articles like “Reverse Engineering a Champion”, there will be some really cool insight that leads to an unexpected conclusion.

I really shouldn’t get my hopes up like that.
