College Football Pickoff: Week 1 (Hurrah!)
SI ^ | August 30, 2012 | Stewart Mandel

Thursday, Aug. 30

7 p.m. ET (ESPN) No. 9 South Carolina at Vanderbilt Steve Spurrier recently paid the Commodores a compliment in a way only the Ball Coach could. "They are trying to play football at Vanderbilt," he said. "They really are." Vandy should be improved on offense after a 6-7 season, but its defense can't withstand four quarters of Gamecocks star Marcus Lattimore if he's recovered from last year's knee injury.

Yeah, Go, Blue! I'd like to see Michigan turn the Tide.

On Saturday, I'll be over at the Coliseum cheering on the Trojans as they take on the Hawaii Rainbows in USC's season opener.

In Southern California, there's no good talk radio on Saturday--mainly shows on get-rich-quick schemes and quack medicine. When football is not in season, I listen to music on Saturdays.

Here in Philly, it's not only the games on the weekends, but it's sports talk during the week after 6 on certain days. I have an hour commute home: it's so damned annoying when I lose 'between the commercials' options to vapid sports talk shows.

(I know ... I need to get a life!! :-)

Where I live, in CT, the advice shows is that about computer issues, gardening, caring for one’s pets. Even so, I look forward to college football on Saturdays.

The Head Ball Coach finally has the a team like he had at Florida back in the day. Watch out for the Gamecocks.

Being ‘off the grid’ we will listen to BYU play their first game of the season tonight (1160 AM, KSL), listend to local high school game last Friday and hope to be able to hear the Moore Lions play Friday (1520 AM, beautiful downtown Okalahoma City. Radio still works and does not keep you tied down like the ‘tube’. The rest of y’all enjoy the viewing while we enjoy the listening.

Pretty obvious that Michigan was WAAAY overrated(so ABC/NCAA could hype a top-ten match-up in week #1..???).

Saban let off the gas or they could have hung 60+ on Michigan...Alabama stomped them in the trenches(elsewhere)on both sides of the ball.

Then again, on any given Sunday Alabama could probably compete with half the NFL with their size/speed...the top tier SEC in general is just in another class compared with the others when it comes to recruits...the Midwest pick'ns must be slim....though Urban may have something to say about that at OSU in the near future.

It’s sad to see how far the Gators have fallen compared to Alabama and LSU. They looked every bit as bad yesterday as they did last year.

Not only that, there is clear division on the team because of the way Muschamp mishandled the QB situation.

This is why you don’t hire head coaches with no previous head coaching experience at this level.
