    Really like the Unders. Especially Stanford and its brutal schedule.

    That’s a bold play betting on Mizzou to win 9 or more. The schedule sets them up for that, but I’m more confident on the under, although I hope I’m wrong about that.

    Sounds like a lot like one publication where I worked. Family was not the beacon it thought itself, but tried to demand 100 percent participation to get an award out of it.

    Worse, they possessed the stones to post signs to the front and back doors of the building urging no solicitation. Yet, we could be badgered by editors regarding The United Way.

    Um, no.

    Did ESPN pursue other games before Miami/Florida as the opening weekend thing? I assume it did. It doesn't hit my top 100 list of games to watch this year. I'm curiously disinterested in it, compared to the Holy War next Thursday!

    The football game itself will be hideously boring, but you know there will be a scrum before the game. You can smell it coming.

    Other than Oregon/Auburn, I can’t name a game in week 1/0 that’s inarguably better.

    The Holy War may have you pumped, but BYU (like Miami) was barely a bowl team last year, and Utah’s last two games were a loss to Northwestern and a Pac-12 title loss that few fans stayed awake to finish. Not to mention a primetime East Coast time slot puts the kickoff at the peak heat of a 95-degree day in Provo.

    And ... Duke/Alabama, I guess? Worth watching, but a matchup against Duke football doesn't jump off the page outside of Charlottesville or Winston-Salem.

    Miami/Florida is a good “matchup” that doesn’t do a lot for me. Fake hate, no real stakes, boring offenses, low-scoring game.

    Seriously what happened to Miami offense?

    Only week this could be the big game is Week Zero.

    Only way I'd be interested in Week 0 is if they did bath salts for halftime.

    Now, don’t get me wrong, but I’d tune in for the possibility of some marching band cannibalism.

    It's Florida so it's possible.

    Looks like Joe Walsh is going to primary Trump. While he's a looong way from saving the Dems from Trump, he's been willing to speak out in no uncertain terms against Trump as well as to call out Republican cowardice in the face to the MAGAts. He's not scared and he's got sharp elbows. Should be an entertaining debate - if the GOP allows one.
