Ok, my last thread on this Thursday was met with remarks like "These matchups suck, I'll wait for Saturday" and stuff like that...well, now it's Saturday, and we can talk about it...

The biggest upset of the day, by far, was unranked and unheralded TCU marching into Norman and taking out the #7 Oklahoma Sooners, 17-10...sorry Bob Stoops!!!

In a game much closer to me, and one that I attended in person, the Rocky Mountain Showdown, my Colorado Buffaloes took out the Colorado State Rams in an absolute thriller, 31-28...this rivalry game gets better and better each year...too bad next year is the last date it's scheduled for currently  Sad

Here's some pics from the game...

The game's hero, Colorado kicker Mason Crosby, just after hitting a 47 yarder with 4 seconds left that won the game...also his 21st birthday today, and I don't think he'll be buying drinks anytime soon...

Of course, we rushed the field after the big win...

And yours truly...

How'd your team do today???

OSU 34-14 over Miami. In Tressel style though.....he pulled the starters on defense in the third quarter and let Miami score two cheapies. Might have been good strategy as to not let Texas get a good look in order to formulate their game plan. Next week might be for the national championship. Go BUCKS!

Where's KROC? Waiting for the bashing to begin...lol.

Thats the problem with the FSU UM game, I never know who to root for since both teams can't lose.

Urban Meyer's first game was successful,

UF - 32
UW - 14

Well, my beloved Falcons can score points, and not too many teams will be able to stop their offense. Omar Jacobs was 29 of 50 passing, for 440 yards, 4 TD passes and 1 pick. He's amazing to watch. Unfortunately, he had a good 10 passes dropped, and more unfortunately, Wisconsin's running game made mincemeat of Bowling Green's rund defense.

Wisconsin 56, Bowling Green 42.  

But damn if their offense isn't fun to watch.

And the Buckeyes made much easier work of Miami, Ohio than I expected. Can't wait for the Texas game!

How about our Lehigh Mountain Hawks destroying Monmouth (who went 10-1 last year) 54-26 under the leasership of 344 yards from our QB and 301 rushing yards from ONE running back alone?!?!?!?!?!?! INSANE!

Boise State got demolished between the hedges in Athens, GA by the 'Dawgs 48-13. Man, that was really great. My team, Fresno State, doesn't play until next week against Weber State, but will prolly move up in the polls due to the upsets (ND crushing Pitt, TAMU losing a close one to Clemson, etc. BSU's destruction, Auburn currently losing). I was impressed with CSU's effort against CU.

One of the big mid-major non-conference games takes place on the 21st, I believe, when Bowling Green travels to Boise and the blue turf. I feel better about BG's chances, because I don't think Boise can run the ball on Bowling Green the way Wisconsin did.

That should be a damn fun game to watch.

Meanwhile in Denton...
UNT - 24
LSU - 21

(Postponed game moved to Playstation)

So the DFW triplets are 1-1-1. Not a bad start to the season. After TCU, the air for the SMU-Baylor game left the building here in dallas. Way to go Horny Frogs!

Have UGA capitalized on all of those turnovers, they should have won 60-something to 13.

Was a really wild game. BG went out on top 13-0 and 20-7, then we came back with 35 2nd quarter points and took over in the 3rd. Colorado transfer (haha greg!) and Milwaukee native Brian Calhoun had an amazing Badger debut with 258 yards on 43 carries. The two teams combined for 14 touchdowns and 1,035 yards.

It was one of those "lame" Thursday matchups, but I'll throw it out there anyway.

Washington State: 38
Idaho: 26

WSU was up 14-0 only 1:03 into the game, but sloppy play allowed Idaho to get back into, and remain in the game until the 4th quarter. Either way, it was way too close for an Idaho game, and it has me worried for the Pac-10 part of the schedule.

In my last year here at the University of Kansas (unless I stay here for grad school), I have made an effort to get to every football, basketball, and soccer game here. Thus, yesterday was the start of it all.

My Kansas Jayhawks beat Florida Atlantic 30 - 19. Next weekend we've got Appalachian State...I predict a 40 - 14ish score...we'll see!  Smile

Well for this opening weekend I had 3 things I want to see

1. USC to win
2. Clemson to lose
3. NC State to win

Well, 1 out of 3 wasn't bad. Year 1 of the Steve Spurrier era kicked off at USC as the Gamecocks picked up a 24-15 win over the Golden Knights of the University of Central Florida. Alas, the rest of my hopes came to naught as Clemson beat Texas A&M by a last second FG and NC State lost one of the best matches I saw this weekend to Marcus Vick and Virginia Tech. Next week Carolina faces Georgia in what promises to be a tough match while NC State has a slightly easier match-up against Eastern Kentucky. Clemson, that team that I hate with a passion, faces up against Maryland. Go 'Cocks, Go 'Pack, and Go 'Terps!



South Carolina - too small to be its own country, too big to be a mental asylum.
