Well technically the 2022 college football season began last week, but for most of the teams, it starts this weekend!

PSU plays at Purdue tonight, a rare Thursday night Fox primetime game.  I have little hope for this year's PSU team.  On paper, it doesn't seem like they fixed the issues from last season that lead them to losing 6 of the last 8 games other than our returning 6th year QB is healthy.  Hopefully all that experience leads him to push this team to what they were before covid. Tonight will tell a lot, Purdue was pretty good last year. 

The Ohio State vs Notre Dame game is the big highlight of the weekend, a rare time for me to root for the Buckeyes.

Well, my beloved Golden Bears will get two warm up games against UC Davis and UNLV before heading into South Bend for the first match against the Irish in ages. Not holding much hope of coming out of there with a win, but at least I know the college football world, for a week at least, will be Cal fans.

Several interesting games this weekend.

My alma mater Appalachian State gets to host UNC.  Pretty weird for the Heels to make the trip to Boone, but I can't wait.  UNC did not look great last week against FAMU.  I like our chances.

Ohio St/Notre Dame should be interesting.  Looking forward to seeing where they both are this early in the season.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

If ND Wins, there's a good chance that they'll be #2 when Cal heads into town.

I think PSU got every single flag to go their way last night including 3 flags thrown against Purdue on a single play.  I don't think I've ever seen such a lopsided called game from refs before actually go my teams way.  I'll take it as they squeezed out a tight road win on the final drive. Exciting game, but showed all the exact same issues as last year other than the team actually pulling out the W.

That's great news, the ESPN article says they are trying to get it effective for 2024.  https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/34509443/board-managers-decide-12-team-college-football-playoff-sources-say

Quote
The 11 presidents and chancellors comprising the board approved the original 12-team model, which includes the six highest-ranked conference champions and six at-large teams, the board announced on Friday.

The four highest-ranked conference champions will be seeded one through four with each receiving a first-round bye. Teams seeded five through 12 will play each other in the first round on either the second or third weekend of December. The quarterfinals and semifinals will be played in bowl games on a rotating basis while the championship game will be at a neutral site, as under the current format.

Looking forward to see Utah try to go all Swamp People on Florida today! I expect it will be entertaining, but I have no expectations beyond that.

It's like they're not even in the same division. I bailed on the game at halftime.


Cal on the other hand is taking care of their lower division opponent so far.

Ditto. Great talent in every position.

Good to see a Michigan win even against a cupcake opponent

Eh, first game of the year. Fun game, but its obvious the Utes are missing Devon Lloyd. Just not the defense were used to.

I dont know if my perspective is skewed, but I thought Thomas got that touchdown that was called short.

Ill bet. What a roller coaster ride that was! The fourth quarter scoring was nuts.

Lol Notre Dame.



I was wondering if Cal would head into South Bend next week to face a top 5 team, now I wonder if ND will even be ranked.


And damn if Texas almost had Bama.

yup, I love it.

Best part of the PSU easy win today against Ohio was our freshman QB (played almost all of the second half to get reps) and freshman RB lighting things up and showing the young talent this team has.  Now if coaching can just put it all together (and so far, I'm liking our new DC) and I don't really mean for this year, but the following.  PSU can be good this year, but I don't think they are a Big 10 contender... but maybe soon though so it's great to see the young players getting time to play and actually impress.

Wazoo finished it out...nice. (nothing against UW, just like to see the Pac 10 get some success)


Cal manages to hold on for the W against UNLV...next stop, Notre Dame.

Good day for the Sun Belt Conference. App beats #6 Texas A&M, Marshall beats #8 Notre Dame, and Georgia Southern beats Nebraska.

In further news, Nebraska just fired Scott Frost.

Nebraska should interview Marshall, Appalachian State and Georgia Southern coaches for the job. Great wins for the resume if needed in the future.

Not sure if Shawn Clark from App would want it. He was an offensive lineman at App under legendary coach Jerry Moore, who established the culture in Boone ( three national championships and the win over Michigan), and he is off to a great start as the head coach himself. He basically enjoys divine status in Boone.

Entertaining and crazy weekend of football.

If I'm a Texas fan, I'm super pissed. How do they let Bama score?
App State! Wow.
Nebraska. Suckage.
Marshall. Wow.
Michigan rolls against another cupcake but I'll take it.

College GameDay will be broadcasting live from my alma mater Appalachian State in beautiful Boone, NC this Saturday!

I would encourage all of you to tune in at some point if you can, and see the absolutely gorgeous Boone area and our pine-surrounded stadium high in the North Carolina mountains!

I'll try to tune in, PSU has a big game at Auburn this weekend.  They are road favorites but it's going to be a tough game to win IMO.

That was a crazy ending but otherwise last weekends games mostly sucked. Even the PSU game, but at least my team put on a beatdown. Now PSU is #14 and I'm not so sure they deserve that yet. Purdue and Auburn both kind of suck even if they were early road wins.

Yeah, I don't think we know a whole lot yet about many teams.

Except that George is friggin' fantastic.  I know that.
