    Great weekend to be a Longhorn. We played lots of younglings, including our future at QB who looked like he could be something very special.. and we found speed in all aspects of the game. A good, convincing start.

    OU lost.. that is ALWAYS good. The bad... Bradford got hurt and from reports, could be out 6 - 8 weeks. That really sucks because by all accounts, he is a good kid and a class act. On the other hand, their offensive line is worse than everyone expected.. they look lost, confused and no matter who they have at QB, they will be running for their lives.. unlike their running backs! Delicious doo da karma for Small Game Bob and the Land Thieves.

    SEC, with the possible exception of Gator Chomp will all do the familial hari kari and will eliminate themselves from national contention.

    Will Cal be able to beat USC?

    Big 10/11.. except for Penn State.. wake me when it's 2011.

    A great opening weekend!!!

    In defense of Bama, I was at that game, and VT had great special teams play. AL penalties helped VT score their two offensive touchdowns. AL's coaching staff stresses conditioning, and the VT defense was worn out by the 4th quarter. Coach Saban's motto rings true: "Make their asses quit!"

    3. Tennessee is better than last year by far, but good? We'll have to see how they do vs UCLA, if they beat UCLA by 3 scores then I believe they'll have a 8win season, worst they can do is a 6win season I feel (I live in knoxville and HATE Kiffin and the vols)
    The problem with that theory is that UCLA looks like dog shit again this year. Just cause his majesty Sir Rick is the coach, that doesn't mean they're good. I expect UT to win big, then come into the UF game with over-inflated expectations, only to get absolutely destroyed by UF. I feel the same way about Kiffin. What a douche. Sticks his foot in his mouth and then says "oh, I meant to do that, all part of the plan." My kid doesn't even lie like that. He's made Al Davis look sane. That said, I'd be happy with him if I was a UT fan because he can clearly recruit. Even if he can't coach a lick and loses a bunch of games, the next coach will have a stocked team like Meyer at UF following Ron Zook.

    I can't believe Saban stresses conditioning more than Foster, VT's long-time defensive coordinator. I think VT just isn't as good as usual on defense (they seem slow and undersized) this year. Also, they are badly misusing Tyrod Taylor - the kid is not a pure drop-back passer. He runs a 4.4 40, he was the no.1 dual threat QB in the country as a recruit, and he's not running? They really need a new offensive coordinator at VT who will pull them out of the stone age. I know VT fans thing a 7-3 win is a good game, but that isn't going to fly in this brave new world. Bama's new QB was better than I expected. He threw a nice deep pass, didn't get rattled easily, and generally did what he was supposed to do. After watching Mississippi yesterday, I'm convinced Bama is the team to beat in the SEC West.

    I guess their 12-0 regular season play record is what draws you that conclusion. AL only lost to FL in the SEC Championship game, and AL was playing without two Senior starters (All American Left Tackle - Andre Smith and starting Left Guard - Mike Johnson). A weak left side is what killed Bama, and there was no one left to stop Tebow. I am no huge fan, but I am not a hater or a jock sniffer either. Call a spade a spade. Just because a team does not win by blowing out the competition is no justification to disparage a highly ranked and winning team. Bama did not have ugly wins and they don't give up. They won many games in the 4th quarter after trading scores in the preceding 3 quarters. Blowouts occur all too often against schools who really shouldn't be playing football against a nationally ranked Div. IA team.
    Like I said, I think they were overrated last year, plus fact is they lost the SEC championship game and their bowl game, so I'll stick with my conclusion. Also good teams will get blewout by better teams on occasion, and I'll think we'll see a few games like that this year. again just my opinion, which means nothing [​IMG]

    UGA fans can now look forward to 11 more weeks of "Who has to lose for UGA to get to the national championship game" AJC articles.

    I think ND is over rated and will lose to Michigan next week.

    Welcome to Zookville. He will lose games he should win and win games he should lose. The openers left me confused. Questions: 1. Is Ok State that good or is UGA that bad? I'm leaning toward the "UGA is worse than expected" theory. The defense just looked bad.
    I disagree with this. The Georgia D was holding a very talented offense to a shutout until the end of the second quarter. Aside from the first, every OSU score came when they were given a short field. After the first touchdown, OSU's scores came after starting on the UGA 6, 24, and 32. In fact, OSU only scored one time when they started on their side of the field. Given what the offense gave them to work with, I'd say the defense did quite well. OSU has one of the best offenses in the country, and the defense was pretty stout. OSU averaged almost five hundred yards per game last season, Georgia held them to just over 300. Now Georgia's offense on the other hand...

    What's everyone thought on the Heisman this year? Are they going to give it Colt, out of pity?[​IMG]

    Anyone have a comment on last years Heisman?

    I actually meant to type "offense" but didn't notice the mistake until you pointed it out. Your analysis is correct, IMO. Defense was pretty good, but Cox looked bad. The refs and Mike Bobo's play-calling weren't helping them out either.

    In that case I agree with your analysis. I fear UGA just might not be able to muster a lot of offense until the new guys get broken in. The offense was just terrible, both the playing and coaching. If UGA and S. Car play offense this week like they did in week one we may well see another Auburn-Mississippi State.

    I'm hoping it was just jitters for Cox, and that we'll see a much better offense overall this weekend. It's a home game, and maybe being beaten on national television will give them some motivation. However, if the offense looks like that again it might be time to think about starting Logan Gray and calling this a true rebuilding year. Sentimentally, I'd hate to see Cox lose the starting job after waiting out Stafford, but there's no reason to throw away a season on a failing QB when we could be getting a young guy some experience.

    What a wonderfully diverse post.

    You managed to be profane, puerile and parochial at the same time!
