Appalachian State about to go up against Aggies. That’s one to watch. Damn near beat UNC last week.

I’ve been watching Texas football since I was in grade school. I saw Earl play under coach Royal against Tech when we lived in Lubbock. Seen a lot of great wins and heartbreaking losses. Went to every single game when I was a student at Texas. Proposed to my SO at the Cotton Bowl. I will never stop rooting for them (every single item of clothing I am wearing today is burnt orange Texas gear), but holy fuck that was one of the worst coaching jobs I’ve ever seen. Charlie Strong wants his job back.

The always overrated Notre Dame starting 0-2 would make me very happy. It may drop them to 10th in next week’s poll.
I would SO like to venomously attack this post, but I can’t. An absolutely awful follow up to last week. Doesn’t speak well of coaches or players. They should’ve been in take it out on Marshall mode. Instead of, maybe, eeking one out at home.

How bad is Colorado St? They're trailing at home to MTSU 17-0. MTSU lost to FBS newcomer JMU last week 44-7.

I am thus far, profoundly unimpressed with Freeman as a game day coach. An epic fail preparing his team this week, from both a strategy/tactics standpoint, and from an emotional intensity standpoint. Same with bowl game last year. But I guess I should be impressed with the nice try/moral victory last week.

I've watched five minutes of Notre Dame football this year, but how in the world are they ranked in the top 10?

(I realize this is an evergreen post)

He had a lane to run to his right and pick up the first down. Why force a sideline throw? Duuuuuuuude.

To the announcer...this is absolutely not one of the biggest upsets in CFB history. I expect hyperbole on SoSH...not on a national broadcast.

20 point underdogs win every season.

The QB seems like he might really suck…but that’s on the coach for playing him. Really wanted Freeman to be good.

Don't look now, but Appalachian State might be joining the upset party. Gets the ball on a fumble around midfield in a tie game in the 3Q. Didn't A&M spend an obscene amount of money on this roster?

Woo Pig! Huge one for the Hogs, getting that first SEC win out of the way. Bobby P next week! Allegedly students will be wearing neck braces lol.

Same shit, different year. Always overrated as fuck.
