Re: The College Football Thread

So I keep hearing Cal might be a team to be reckoned with this year. I can't wait until the USC games (For both Cal and Stanford) but I doubt Cal will do anything because for some reason Tedford just can't get over that hump. Hopefully it happens, but for some reason I see another Poinsettia Bowl
/holiday bowl or something. They seem to play a lot of games in San Diego during bowl season.

^Can you blame them? From what I've seen, San Diego is a beautiful city. Especially in December/January.

As for Cal, I'll definitely be pulling for them against USC. It wasn't all that long ago where Cal and USC were having pretty close games. I think Tedford can at least make a game out of it against USC, especially since Cal gets them at home. Plus seeing the Trojans lose never really seems to get old.

Re: The College Football Thread

^Amen to USC losing. Always a fun time, especially when Stanford did it. Also, I was looking at the Cal Football bowl history, and they've only played in San Diego twice in the decade. I thought it was more. Still, I expect them to get one of those between Christmas/New Years bowls again.

I don't know what to think about this year's team. It should be interesting. A lot of tough road games this year.

Yeah, your guys have to come to Oregon this year. At least you get OSU at home, Corvallis seems to have some bad effect on SC.

Re: The College Football Thread

Hopefully your Ducks can get the Trojans this year. It should be an interesting game, with USC going through as much reloading as a school like USC is going to go through, and with Oregon replacing quite a few players as well. I'm already getting excited for football season, and it's still July!

The Big Ten had its media day today, and Ohio State was picked to win the league. Blah. I hope they're wrong.

I hope the Ducks win too, just to be able to taunt Digits for another year.

Re: The College Football Thread

The season is definitely getting close now. I'll do a bit of cross promotion and talk about the pick'ems as well. The more people we have doing these, the more fun it is.

Here's the info...

College Football Pick'em
Link: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo....ster/joingroup
Group #: 440
Password: football

Join up! It's a lot of fun. Basically, you choose the winner of every Top 25 game every week. We are picking against the spread, so the favored team needs to win by more than X number of points (the exact number of points is listed before each game) in order for the pick to be correct.

Re: The College Football Thread

I hate bumping my own thread, but I'm pleased with how today's football turned out. It was a Division II game, but it was still a pretty good matchup. Grand Valley (my school!) went in a preseason #1 against #11 West Texas A&M. It was a road game too, so that was working in West Texas's favor.

The first half was pretty close, with Grand Valley getting a late touchdown to go up 14-9. The second half was dominated by Grand Valley, and they won 37-23. It may not have meant much to most people, but I was glad to see college football season get off to a fun start.

The Big 10 starts playing next week, and then college football is officially in full swing! Excitement may now ensue...

Good for your Lakers. Speaking of D2, my hometown #9 Carson-Newman Eagles (2 blocks away) didn't fare so well at Winona State with a late rally that wasn't enough, and now we get to go on the road again to #5 North Alabama. Hopefully the offense gets on track earlier next week.

Next week: Let's go Vols! Eric Berry for Heisman!

Oregon is at Boise State Thursday night (on ESPN) to help get the Division I schedule rolling.

Yeah, especially against Oregon and Cal, both tough places to play. I am rooting for my Golden Bears, but I always keep my expectations low. As long as the number on the left is bigger than the number on the right, I am happy.

Re: The College Football Thread

So many pundits are predicting Cal as the closest team to knock USC off of that perch in the Pac-10. Am I the only one who remembers Jeff Tedford as a coach who has never, or barely won any big games? Just because you have a Heisman candidate, doesn't mean you're going to be that good. I hope they are, but it's really a wait and see. Not really sure about Riley as QB but I just hope it's a better season than last year. Looking forward to the much hyped and much deserved hyped USC/Cal or Stanford match up.

USC also plays at Ohio State and Notre Dame (who should be better this year).

With the injuries USC has suffered in pre-season, and with starting a true freshman for the first time in school history, it should be a very challenging year for the Trojans.

I could honestly see a 9-3 or even 8-4 year.
