College Football Week 1: How Did Your Team Do?

Well, week one is nearly over. There are a few games to be played tonight, and I think one tomarrow. But, the majority of the games are over. My take on week one:

USC looks good again. They will eventually wear down just about everyone they play. Will they contend for a national title? That I don't know about. They should be strong, though. And, they should end up in a BCS bowl.

Texas looks pretty good again. They should do well, but they need to play a few good teams yet before we can judge how good they really are. Just like USC, for that matter. Everyone plays a cup cake in week one for the most part.

I didn't get to see Ohio State, but from what I've heard, many are picking them to beat Texas next week.

Cal layed an egg out at Tennessee. Man that was ugly. A new QB controversy is brewing in Berkeley.

Oregon looked strong against Stanford, but like Texas and USC, they played a weak team. They'll lose a few games this year I think.



As for my team? Oregon State thumped a cup cake in Division 1AA Eastern Washington. They rolled 56-17, and it was never close. At the end of the first quarter, it was 21-0. They looked pretty strong all around, but the real test is next week at Boise State.

The Pac 10 looks to have four or five teams that are strong this year, and will show well in bowl games again this year.

Let's wait until they play a real team to start talking about how good USC is.

All this talk about how they are better than USC this year, and then they not only lose, they get annihilated. Pathetic.

My team the University of Southern Miss got their ass whipped by Florida 34-7, but it was to be expected. We played them close until 4th quarter, and we turned the ball over too many times.

On a side note, Texas' QB is named Colt McCoy...what a fitting name for a Texas QB. I thought that was hillarious.

Sloppy win over ISU for the Boilermakers. This could be a tough season...such a strong start to the game...and yet many crucial mistakes that made it closer than it should have been....two dropped punts!?

Curtis Painter on the other hand seemed to do well. He's young, but I think he'd got great talent...he just needs experience to hone his skills.

Hawks wallopped I-AA Montana, but unfortunately it was not as lopsided as it should have been, it seems. As late as the middle of the 3rd quarter the score was 17-7 Iowa, which was way too close for comfort when playing a I-AA team. But right after Montana got their only TD, Drew Tate and company went on a nice drive and scored to make it 24-7, and then the next time they got the ball made it 31-7, and the final score was 41-7, so they were able to pull away pretty at the end.

Syracuse should be a non-issue next week, and then two weeks from today is the biggest weekend in the state of iowa (outside of the beginning of the state fair of course - ha), Iowa v. Iowa State. It's in Iowa City this year, so we shouldn't have too much of a problem.

It's gonna be a crazy weekend.

Florida and Georgia both won. Yes, I cheered for UGA. We have a family friend on the team as a freshman. I'll cheer for them every game except the one with Florida.

I know no one cares and the game had zero interest nationwide, but my alma mater, Northern Michigan finally won one, coming back from a 20-7 defict in the last five minutes to beat that other power house University of Indianapolis 27-20 in OT. A quick history lesson NMU went 0-11 in 1974 and the next year was national champions at 13-1 (so there is hope for some teams), and until 1988 was a national powerhouse in DII football, beating some MAC teams along the way.

My alma mater - Coast Guard - doesn't get to lose its first game of the season until next week, when it opens against Kings Point.

The team I root for, being born and raised southern California, is USC. They did just fine, feasting on some fine Arkansas hog.

My Fresno State Bulldogs had a pretty good opener.

Fresno State: 28
Nevada: 19

The soph QB for Fresno State did a pretty good job for his first game. Williams and Fernandez at WR make him look good though. We will see. Next week is against Oregon.

My beloved BG Falcons fell to Wisconsin at Browns' Stadium 35-14. Just like last year, they made some key mistakes at bad times, and just weren't a match for Wisconsin's offensive line and punishing running game. They used a redshirt freshman who played his first ever college game, named Freddie Barnes, and he did a pretty damn good job.

They get the honor of playing Ohio Sate the week after they play Texas, I believe. Oh, joy..

And speaking of OSU, they warmed up with for the 'Horns with an easy win over another MAC school, Northern Illinois.

Might be lousy at football, but didn't USNews or some other rating service report that the Coast Guard Academy was the hardest school to get accepted into. Brains not Brawn.

Goes without saying, of course!  biggrin 

Football remains a painful event. At our homecoming several years ago, we got slaughtered by Salve Regina - which had been an all-girls college when I was a CGA Cadet.

My alma Mater (Kent State) SUCKED as usual.. they lost to Minnesota 44-0

However, my favorite college team (Ohio State) did very well... they will beat Texas.

Well, my team is Cal, and as mentioned earlier, they had a miserable performance.

I am confident they will rebound, though, look for better QB play, better running, and stronger tackling in their next effort.
