Just now hearing about Duke taking Clemson to the woodshed.. What the actual fuck?

Was just reading about this, apparently Dabo Sweeney is against using the portal transfer system?  I know it's a huge change to the game, but if he's not going to use it, Clemson is going to have issues and that may be starting to show right now.  All these teams are plugging holes with transfers, (PSU did this specifically with WR and those two transfers made big plays last weekend).  It's part of the game and you got to embrace it or be left behind. 

Also, Clemson didn't look great last year even though their record was solid.  It's only one game, maybe not a reason to put too much into it, but it's very possible Clemson is not going to be the powerhouse they've been recently.

It was a combo of Duke being better than many people nationwide think they are, and Clemson making too many mistakes, mostly in the red zone.

I don't think Clemson is quite as bad as they looked last night.  But they need to cut out the errors in a hurry, and probably beat Florida State at the end of the month, or it's going to be a long season.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Did I read Clemson turned the ball over at the opponent's 1 yard line?

Great sack by Cal. Sure looked like a safety to me!

God, RJ, Cal’s secondary corp is great. Wish the OC would run Ott outside the tackles a bit.

Agreed, he's such an explosive runner, and the holes would be much more aplenty on the ends.

App State gave a valiant effort, but UNC escaped in 2 OT.

I was glad to see Texas beat Alabama (well, I have no love for Texas either, but I was definitely glad to see Bama lose).

Coach Prime is doing impressive work at Colorado.

The SEC losing almost all their P5 OOC games is fantastic.  Granted, they mostly played solid teams so at least they played good competition.  PAC12 still looking good. 

PSU handled business, I didn't even watch. Of course my 3rd and last sibling to get married is ALSO getting married during a PSU game  :lol they are 1-1 at those, but they should definitely be able to beat Illinois on the road next week in their first Big 10 game.

Thought this would be a good place to mention a well done HBO documentary called 'BS High', about Bishop Sycamore and its narcissistic charlatan 'coach' Roy Johnson and his 'criminal' actions.  Truly appalling. 

https://time.com/6307570/bs-high-hbo-true-story/

And then, we have Mel Tucker of Michigan State: 
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/investigations/2023/09/10/michigan-state-football-coach-sexual-harassment-claim/70679703007/

Yet another black eye on an institution and program less than 30 miles from where I grew up (I'm old enough to remember Duffy Daugherty and his National Championship team, the Rose Bowl loss to UCLA, and the infamous 10-10 tie against Notre Dame)

Went to many games last century at Spartan Stadium, including Kirk Gibson catching TD passes from Eddie Smith in '78, and their Rose Bowl clinching win over Indiana in '87.  My most cherished were the first three times my alma mater Central Michigan played them in the 90s (and won the first two matchups :tup :tup :tup).  With a young and inexperienced backfield, the Chippewas put up a decent effort in the opener against MSU.  Goodness knows how bad of a whoopin' Notre Dame will inflict on them this weekend.  Hopefully not as bad as my stepdaughter's alma mater's showing against Penn State last weekend in a game that never should have been scheduled.

Last week's slate of games were pretty uninteresting.  That changes this weekend.  Bunch of 3-0 teams face off against each other including a handful of ranked games.  Also includes PSU vs Iowa in the white out night game. 

PSU struggled quite a bit with Illinois last week on the road.  FIrst road game of the season, first big 10 game of the season, and the young QB showed his struggles.  Illinois stacked the box and made things difficult.  But the PSU defense is really good allowing PSU to comfortably win in the end.  I kind of expect a similar type of game on Saturday.  Iowa is better than Illinois and has a really tough defense.  PSU is one of only 2 teams to not have a turn over this season so far and I find it hard to go against Iowa and not turn it over.  My guess is PSU takes over in the 2nd half and wins by 2 scores (which is the current spread, 14) but I would not be surprised if this is a tough defensive battle where PSU loses their nation leading streak of scoring 30 points or more a game.

Definitely looking forward to this week's slate of games.  Colorado vs. Oregon will be interesting.

Indeed it will.

I'm looking forward to UCLA vs. Utah, obviously. Hoping *fingers crossed* that Utah get's some starters back on the defensive front...also, Rising. I have a feeling that both UCLA and Utah's vulnerabilities will get exposed and we'll find out that neither team is quite deserving of their ranks. Washington, Oregon, and *gag* USC will probably rise to the top of PAC12 once the annual conference cannibalism is over.

I thought Coach Sanders condemnation of the death threats to Colorado State safety Blackburn to be perfect. He continues to surprise me, in a good way.

Same man...he's such a solid and upfront dude.



If they manage to get through Oregon this week and USC next, they easily should be top 5.

Gotta get that Cal running game going full tilt, brother. It's gonna be a tough ask against Washington's front seven though. I'll be pulling for you. Go Bears!

Our QB is just inconsistent as fuck too...shame cause our D is pretty damn solid, I think any big victories we get this year will be of the attrition variety, no fucking way we're outscoring anyone worth a shit.

Exactly, that’s why I mentioned the running game. In games of attrition, time of possession rules. I think Cal’s defense can hold their own, but the offense needs to control the clock and still score.

It is interesting to see the PAC12 looking so strong in the final season of the conference (I guess it may still exist? certainly not the way it currently is though).

If this were next season, the Big 10 would have 6 of the top 10 teams.  Crazy.  Definitely not a fan of the changes coming, but certainly interesting to see how this is playing out this season so far. Makes me wonder if historians will look back at this season and say "why did you ruin this???"  :lol

If Deion Sanders had started at Colorado last year or the year before, the PAC-12 would not be headed for dissolution.
