    Season starts Thursday. :) NC State-South Carolina seems to be the most interesting matchup of the opening day. Alabama is overrated and after Saturday night will be nicknamed the Possums (they're going to get killed on the road). Illini-Mizzou should be Saturday's most interesting game. I'm not sure I like the idea of ESPN showing college football instead of MLB on Labor Day; just feels wrong somehow.

    Tell me again ... why doesn't anybody like Rutgers this year?

    And I have James Madison beating Duke. 8)

    No Ray Rice = no running game.

    No Ray Rice. That's why.

    Fresno wins on the road in that one.

    Well alrighty then.

    How bad will Temple-Army be? And why is ESPN picking it up (for Classic)?

    EDIT: UConn ... real deal or third-tier bowl?

    That may be worth watching just to see how bad it will be.

    Temple could win 6 games this year. They've been creeping up the last few years. They played a great game against Penn State last year but time and again couldn't fucking punch the ball in deep inside the red zone.

    Temple might be better than you think .. at least not as horrid as in the past.

    UConn= third-tier bowl.

    I don't know. I kind of see Illinois struggling just like Rutgers because Mendenhall was such a workhorse, could carry the ball all day. Do they have anyone else to take the pressure off Juice?

    Illinois used two QBs (eddie McGee, I think, was the other bloke's name) at times last year. Dufrene and Pollard are two killer running backs. I don't think Illini miss a beat. And I need to go puke for writing that.

    Word from upstate New York is that Greg Robinson has been told to win more games than he loses or update his rezoomay.
