Some good games on opening weekend. Who ya like?
I'm an Iowa Hawkeye fan. Home state. Always up for some college football chat!
You in Bama?
Nope, Florida.. my girl is from Bama so we pull for them.
I'm in central FL. Where you?
I got some family in Jacksonville. You guys be careful with that massive ass hurricane lol
Hurricanes have followed me since I was a baby. For someone who doesn't GO TO THEM, I've probably been in as many as anyone.
Northeast On the coast. So are you bucs or dolphins? I told you "yawn" about that game in the hurricane thread.. lol.. I'm from Indy so I'm diehard Colts fan..
Lived in Balt. 60s , seen all the greats Unitas, Berry, Smith, Lipscomb, Matte(damned good back), Mackey, Morrell. I'm a Buc. Looks like Ivan is going to get you east coast guys big time. Luck.
Clemson fan/alum here!
anybody else hate Ohio St as much as I do?
I hope the Sooners whoop dat ass this weekend.
clemson/auburn should be a great one too.
usc/stanford should also be good.
Lived in some berg once that ran Big 10 games at 3 A.M. or so. Caught Iowa several times. End of season I noticed, they've morphed into a fast, tight little ball club. Their bowl match was a higher ranked eastern type team ( big, strong, not so fast). I bet a hundred on Iowa straight up. They ran those big guys out of the stadium. Collected $250.Thought highly of Iowa ever since.
Auburn-Clemson: Week's marquee match IMO. Looking for a match
Yeah Iowa can be hit and miss. They ain't no Alabama but they've repped nicely the past few years. This year they have some pretty good recruits playing ball, who committed to them the year they went undefeated in the reg season a couple years ago(first time ever). Love my Hawkeyes. Espenesa(If I'm spelling it right) is a freshman starting DE for them. The highest recruit they've ever landed before, he was the #1 DE prospect in the whole country the year he signed with us. Our defense looks to be STOUT. Offense needs some work, got a new QB but we still came out with the win this last weekend, I believe 28-3, may be wrong on the score. MIGHT I ADD, against a Wyoming QB that they are projecting to go 1st round next year.
Still there were some frustrating moments to the game.
I'm looking forward to this thread as the college football year goes on!
Also, I'm a Dallas Cowboys fan, but I'm not as big on NFL as college
i actually think that usc stanford will be better.
but 2 great Defenses in Aub and Clem. I've seen some sports guys picking aub to win the sec over bama.
i liked your whole post up to that.
Haha right on man. You guys remember the Iron bowl a few years ago?? Im not too up on the SEC and other conferences but I think it was Auburn and one of their rivals or something like that..
Long ass field goal try.. 50 to 60 yards or something like that, last couple seconds, last play of regulation, I believe tied game. The try was short and fielded by a returner who took it all the way to the other endzone, touchdown, the whole stadium swarmed the field. WAS FUCKING AWESOME.
Auburn /SEC could happen. Anyone who thinks he can pick the Bama/Auburn winner is ripe to buy a bridge in Brooklyn.
Bama/ Auburn. Auburn won 3 or so miracle finish games that year.
Don't worry, you might be tarred and feathered but we won't turn you over to the Apaches, maybe. Here's a badge of honor, When Dallas and the Saints were in the same division the 1 and 10 Saints would beat the 10 and 1 Cowboys like a rented mule, year after year.
