    So MD has lost it's sixth straight the week they've first been ranked. Gotta be a record in futility, no?

    An extra round of playoffs would also be one more game for, literally, four teams out of 130, and two more games for two teams out of 130. Never understood how they can make that argument with a straight face.

    Geez, I didn't even realize Maryland ran a disastrous fake field goal early in the game. What a shit show that game was for them.

    South Carolina gets screwed a bit with a potential touchdown that wasn't replayed, then can't score on fourth and goal heading into the half. On top of it, and not that it matters, the last two seconds also ran off the clock at the end of the fourth down play so Alabama didn't even have to take a knee inside their own 5.
    CBS reporter asked Will Muschamp about it and he responded, "I'll get fined for the rest of my life if I comment on it."

    Geoff Collins is probably checking on flights back to Philly. Meanwhile, Justin Fuente has to be thinking about his future.

    In addition, Boston College lost to Kansas at Chestnut Hill. N.C. State just helped the state's furniture industry as Morgantown burns its couches as the 'Neers take out the Wolfpack.

    Never mind the game in Winston-Salem because of Swofford and his "vision."

    Usually coaches get better at being head coaches with experience. I've never seen anyone go backwards as quickly as Pat Narduzzi. 2015 Narduzzi would have gone for it on 4th and 1. So glad I went golfing instead of watching those two turd teams. And yes, Penn State is a turd team. When you have as much superior talent as Penn State allegedly has you should win that game in a blowout. And spare me the, "well, anything can happen in a rivalry game" shit. The only excuse is that James Franklin, as I've said multiple times, is an idiot. He's Narduzzi with better athletes.

    Collins is doing a full program overhaul, changing scheme and basically making half the roster he inherited useless. It's going to take a while. Fuente has a different set of problems as he's had some strange attrition in the program in the past off season.

    I know, naf. And that's absolutely correct. But it doesn't make a loss like that much less painful.

    Getting dumptrucked by Clemson is pretty much the norm. But The Citadel? Ouch.

    Say what you want, but Central Florida is crushing a Pac-12 school that could land in a big bowl. The excuse, 'they don't play anybody' is holding less and less water. Do they deserve a spot in the top four? Probably not. But they're a damn sight better than 10 of 14 SEC teams right now.

    I'd put UCF in the top 10 - I'd rather have them in a playoff discussion than a team that has already proven they don't belong. But this might be the worst Stanford team Shaw's had. And the Pac-12 is a disaster this year. Feel-good story Colorado just crapped out against the Air Force at home.
    When it's September and your conference hopes are all riding on Utah - ya got problems.

    I can't think of a season since the scholarships were limited where the conference favorites have such an extreme advantage (easy road) to their respective championships.

    It's mid-September and we're basically already assuming:

    ACC: Clemson
    Big Ten: Ohio State/Michigan winner
    Big 12: Oklahoma
    Pac 12: Utah
    SEC: Alabama/Georgia winner
    AAC: Central Florida

    Barring any amazing upsets -- is Notre Dame really going to catch Georgia in a trap game? -- that's your best six (actually eight) teams. And the separation from them to the rest is an abyss.

    While recognizing my alum status...

    Not at all sure why anyone would assume Utah over Oregon in the Pac 12 right now.
