Franks is still a doo-doo QB. Big guy with no field vision whatsoever.

I have only been watching the last five minutes or so of this game and it is just ridiculous.

Yup. It certainly doesn't fill me with optimism that Florida's pre-season #8 ranking is accurate, most especially on the offensive side of the ball.

There's a lot of games on tap for tonight. I remember when they were only one or two on Thursday to kickoff the season.

F.U. Purdue. Pissed that game away. I have NEV on the Under win total.

That NEV kicker will get lucky tonight after that money kick.

Re: 2019 College Football: Week 1.

It should be against NCAA rules for the power conferences to feast on the bottom feeders out of conference to start the season. I know that it helps to bring some recognition to the lesser known school but it normally ends up a blow out and has no entertainment value.

I'm calling out Michigan on this for Week 1.

And Willie Taggart is a dead man still coaching.

Taggart has the rest of the season to lose his job ...

Ducks are showing that it's hard to start a true freshman against a 4th year Heisman candidate ...

Regretfully changing my assessment about Bo Nix. Still crossing fingers ...

ETA: Screw you, Ducks. Break my heart again. Sucks being a sports fan in Oregon. Honestly, why do I take time off work to watch? I haven't been pleased by Oregon sports since 1977 ...

If you can't win coaching at Florida State, you don't deserve to be a head coach. The program recruits itself. Taggart is in way over his head.

Jalen Hurts was incredible last night. Heisman 3-Peat in Oklahoma is a real possibility.

For the love of god. It's one game. That being said, it is the B12. 6 TDs per game might be his average there.

He did very well, but a lot of quarterbacks can be incredible against Houston.

It does make you wonder what he might manage against a team that fields a defense. Maybe we will see around Thanksgiving when they play TCU and their returning best in the B12 nearly top 40 scoring defense.

We'll also have a good idea when Hurts and Ehlinger face off against each other in the Red River Rivalry on 10/12.
