Perfect excuse to go out to a sports bar and watch the games

Winners in bold
Should be some good games

#9 South Carolina at Vanderbilt
Lot of talk coming out of Nashville, but SC is too good for them

#24 Boise State at #13 Michigan State
Sparty at home and Boise without Kellen Moore

#14 Clemson v. Auburn
This is a toss up IMO

#8 Michigan v. #2 Alabama
I don't see the upset here, Bama will play 4 quarters

Georgia Tech at #16 Virginia Tech
eff the Bees

Buffalo at #6 Georgia
Confidence builder for this team

The upcoming expanded playoff and other distractions have really soured me on the one sport I used to love so much more than I do now. I'll continue to cheer for my team, but aside from that my heart just isn't really in it anymore.

This one kills me, these are my two favorite teams! I have a slight pull for Bama, but man it is a hard one. Now if we were playing those pesky "Dawgs" or any team in orange.... well that would be easy!

Josh Nunes is the new starting quarterback for Stanford. He won't completely fill the huge shoes of Andrew Luck, but I expect he'll efficiently run the offense and make his share of throws. Or he'll just hand the ball off to Stepfan Taylor, who should have opened a lot of eyes nationally by gaining 170 yards in the Fiesta Bowl. He figures to be in the Heisman conversation like Toby Gerhart and Andrew Luck before him.

I'm actually most excited about seeing Stanford's defense this season. Speed, athleticism, and depth rarely seen on the Farm. I'm not expecting another BCS berth due to a tougher schedule and a less experienced quarterback, but should be an exciting season.

Ol' Ball Coach can't be happy with what he has seen from Connor Shaw in the first half so far

10-10 Vandy hanging with the 'Cocks

I thought Vandy might be done after they missed so many 1st quarter opportunities

Wow, I don't understand why SCarolina isn't pounding Vandy with a good dose of Lattimore

Backup QB in the game and they are still running the QB and throwing??
Sheesh

If I had the big guy, I'd use him

They may be afraid to work Lattimore that hard with him coming back from an ACL injury.

I agree, but it isn't even about working him hard, they are hardly working him... at all
Lattimore has 5 carries
Backup QB almost has that many
And they are trying to have the backup QB pass

Strange to me...

I think Lattimore may not be as healthy as advertised

I'm gonna give you something to cheer for. During a quality drinking session, I made a bet with a Sooner. He works the same job as I do - just a different company. We made a lanyard bet. If OU wins our game, I have to wear an OU lanyard for a solid month. The rule is, the lanyard needs to be worn anytime I need my badge. That's a huge amount of time. At work. During my commute. Anytime I'm not at home. You know what I do for a living - if I lose this bet I'll have to stare roughly 600 people every day in the eye and thank them while wearing a ****ing Sooner lanyard around my neck. Holy ****. And vice versa for him. He's scared too.

If I lose this thing, I'll post a pic. That'll give you something to look forward to.

I think you must have had more to drink than your buddy

Not too impressed with SC or Vandy last night
Of course opening on the road in the SEC is tough for anybody

Lattimore is clearly not game ready in spite of 100 yds and 2 TDs
Connor Shaw was beaten to a bloody pulp
Will have to wait and see the lasting effects of that shoulder injury

Feeling good about the Dawgs in the East this morning
But it is a long road to the SEC Championship Game aka National Championship Game

Go Dawgs!!

Yeah - it wasn't one of my smarter moments! But my buddy was talking trash and I had to step up. We'll see - it's a horrible bet on paper, but it's also a rivalry game where anything can happen.

Gameday! Hook'em!

Why does it not bother me to hear about Nick Saban or Les Miles
But when I keep hearing about Urban Meyer... ugh
Urban is a drama queen

Freshman Todd Gurley has 2 touchdowns on 3 touches
One a 100 yard kickoff return

Makes you forget Isaiah Crowell real quick

Meh, Dawgs will win the game I'm sure
But not happy with the first half at all

Buffalo out gained Georgia 243-188 in total yards in the first half
Bulls with 147 rushing yards
Dawgs lead 24-16 on 2 big plays, a KO return for TD and long pass for TD

With 5 defensive players suspended, it doesn't look good for the Mizzou game next week

You friggin' sandbagger. You're gonna handle Missouri easily. They don't suck, but I don't see an upset here.

And holy crap, what a bummer start for Penn State.
