2015 College Football Season Thread
« on: August 23, 2015, 02:42:22 PM »
Might as well kick off this thread with the useless preseason AP Top 25 poll (for the record, all preseason polls are useless), released just a little bit ago. That team from Cowdumbus is ranked #1 (and the first unanimous #1 since AP started doing the preseason polls). TCU, Alabama, Baylor, and Michigan State round out the top 5. If TCU or Baylor are still in the Top 5 at the end of the season, it'll be interesting to see how The Authority ...the selection committee screws them out of a playoff spot this year.  :P

USC coach Steve Sarkisian apparently thought he was at a wedding reception with an open bar and not a rally for boosters alumni and donors.

One week before the season, and Illinois fires head coach Tim Beckman.

http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/13533196/tim-beckman-fired-coach-illinois-fighting-illini

BUT WHY WOULD YOU DO SUCH A THING, A WEEK BEFORE THE OPENE--

Quote
Just one week before their season opener, the Illinois Fighting Illini have fired football coach Tim Beckman amid allegations of influencing medical decisions and pressuring players to play hurt, athletic director Mike Thomas announced Friday.

In a statement, Thomas said the dismissal was related to preliminary results of an external review into the allegations, which also included efforts to avoid reporting players' injuries.

Oh...nevermind. Yeah, that'll do it.

Probably because Wisky on paper just isn't all that impressive. New head coach that isn't Jim Harbaugh (not Paul Chryst's fault), no Melvin Gordon...they'll do enough to win a very weak Big Ten West Division before getting the atomic wedgie treatment in the Big Ten Championship game just like last season.

As always, feel free to quote me if I'm wrong at the end of the season.  8)

I bet going 12-25 had some play in it also. I bet Urban Saban Pete Carroll etc... would be given some time to work things out. Yeah so they are in the coaching search early this year.

Watching the Auburn louisville game.  It reminds me of the Stoppable force vs the Moveable object. Auburns DL is legit, that is their saving grace. THeir D is better than I thought and their O is worse than I thought actually.

Dissecting Michigan/Utah 4 days later:

-the game ended as I pretty much expected it would: with a loss. However, the game was there for Michigan to take. Three turnovers (one I'd blame on Jake Rudock, one on the receiver, and one the defender just made one hell of a play) killed drives. That can't continue, since that's one of the things that sent Michigan to 5-7 last season. Three overthrown passes to wide open receivers that would've led to TDs also sting.

-Jake Rudock wasn't great at QB, but he's the one that has to stay QB1. Looks like Harbaugh's going to keep it that way too.

-It was nice seeing a coach make actual halftime adjustments based on what and wasn't working in the first half. Looking forward to seeing more of this actual coaching thing.

-Run blocking and the run game itself need work.

Anyway, some other fun things happened this weekend too...unless you're a Nebraska fan.

More takeaways....

I think Bama has a QB, he wont win a hiesman, but he is will do well.

I am nervous about Arky and A&M this year. I think A&M may win the west :( I think Bama goes 10-2 or 11-1 this year. The good news is that is a down season most teams would give their left nut to have.

Auburn to go 8-5
Tennessee 7-6
Georgia 10-2

What the hell Mizzou 3 peats as East champs

OSU is scary good this year.
