    True, but until the games start it's the only thing we have to talk about.

    Not looking forward to our first game. We have to play at Clempson, it ain't going to be pretty...

    I may just go up to DragonCon that night and pretend the game isn't happening.

    Seeing how ESPN pushed the game to the new ACC Network, which the local Cable system doesn't carry yet, won't be able to watch it anyway.

    3 Georgia
    4 Oklahoma
    5 Ohio State
    6 LSU
    7 Michigan
    8 Florida
    9 Notre Dame
    10 Texas
    11 Oregon
    12 Texas A&M
    13 Washington
    14 Utah
    15 Penn State
    16 Auburn
    17 UCF
    18 Michigan State
    19 Wisconsin
    20 Iowa
    21 Iowa State

    Always fun looking at the polls, I think top 5 are pretty much where they should be at. The team I follow-Michigan a bit high. They have to show me they can win the big games, we shall see how the season plays out

    Anyways always fun for some talk and breakdown

    Sirs, a decent start to the season.

    Florida can’t tackle, unless it’s a sack apparently.

    Miami's O line is poor ... so far ... and the freshman qb was well, a freshman ... running for his life most of the night.
    I don't know if hes any better than any of the others they have.

    Thier RB Dallas impressed me tremendously ... he also played QB.
    Tate played sparingly, mostly as a decoy.

    Florida's RB Peline (sp) looks real good.
    Florida's D Line looks real good.

    Neither team took care of the ball.

    Florida didn't look like a top 10 team IMO. And the Big 12 refs were as bad as I've seen allowing obvious holds, especially the first half. That first Miami touchdown run alone had 3 flagrant holds against Miami and none were called.

    Several games on tonight.

    And the local cable company, Charter, made a deal with Disney and has added the ACC Network to their lineup. So using my father's login on the ESPN App (I pay his bill, so I don't feel guilty about doing that), I'll now be able to watch Clempson stomp us into the ground tonight.
