My first year of legalized college football betting. This will be interesting.

So you think Clemson is going to lose to Georgia plus one additional game? Interesting. I think I may be inclined to agree with you.

But speaking of week zero, what the hell is going on at Nebraska. Didn't think it could get worse, but it has. If they lose this game, their season is done. It may be regardless.

I really like ILL +7.

I thought Scott Frost was a good hire for them. Made total sense.

yes
I think after losing week 1 they’ll win out until the ACC title game where North Carolina will knock them off

Re: College football 2021 hopefully COVID free edition

I'm excited to see what Harsin can do at Auburn, but my expectations have been tempered. I'm hoping for a 7-6 season which I think is doable as we play some pretty weak opponents up front. This is how I see the season playing out
Akron - Win
Alabama State - Win
@Penn - Lose
Georgia State - Win
@LSU - Win
Georgia - Lose
@Arkansas - Win
Mississippi - Win
@TexasA&M - Lose
MS State - Win
@South Carolina - Win (better fucking redeem ourselves after last year)
Alabama - Lose

We do have GA/Bama at home which typically proves to be a heavy advantage, but we will see. I also think we might have a chance against Penn State, but it being away gives them the advantage.

There's something about watching a befuddled Scott Frost continue to bury a once storied program. Both teams looked turrible, but at least Illinois is supposed to.

And I know only Andy Reid can ever be “The Walrus,” but damned if Bert Bielema doesn’t look like he swallowed one whole.

I wonder what the NM State/Bama line will be in November. Bama -60?

VT was close to going up 14-0, at least 10-0, on UNC but just coughed it up in the red zone.

UNC is supposedly the biggest challenger to Clemson in the ACC.

Nice 49 yd FG for VT to go up 17-7. WTF should try to sign him.

Or not. Misses the shorty.

VT could have run 2 minutes off the clock up 10 but tried 2 fades. So stupid.

Not sure why UNC just didn't keep running with 3 TOs - an eternity in college football.

Goes to show why preseason rankings mean shit. I'd say upset for VT, but this is why preseason rankings mean crap.

Sorry I let you post alone. But that was one of the worst offensive line performances you will see, this year or any. North Carolina couldn't protect Howell if they were playing Bishop Sycamore.

Ohio State might have 4 of the top 5, or 6 at worst, QBs in the conference. That isn't a good thing. Mertz and Clifford are garbage.

Holy shit. Mertz might be the worst QB in the power 5.

And Tulane, yes Tulane, with the shot at beating Oklahoma in Norman. Really felt the Sooners were overrated, especially Rattler, but what do I know.

Hoping for a 16-16 tie, if possible.

I was wrong. They do have the 4 best in the conference. Maybe the McCarthy kid at michigan would be 4th on the Buckeyes depth chart. Penix has taken himself out of any conversation about being good. Many people were predicting a comeback to earth for Indiana and it looks like they were correct early on.

Meanwhile, Alabama is still really good, Miami still is not, and Kayvon Thibodeaux likely has played his last game for Oregon. Went out with an ankle injury and was wearing a walking boot. Why risk another injury, even with NIL money.
