End of 3rd quarter, LSU 33, Miami 3.   As much as I would like to see Miam's further humiliation, I am tired and going to bed.

It was more of the same. You didn't miss much.

Miami has not won a game since starting  10-0 last season.   4 losses in a row since then.   (They played only 11 games in the regular season last year, due to a game being canceled and not rescheduled)

We SC Gamecock fans were hoping South Carolina could challenge Georgia for the SEC East title this year, and would prove it in this second week matchup,  but SC got curbstomped by the Dawgs 41-17 instead.    Ug.

At least this also happened in the SEC East, which I like:
Florida vs. Kentucky score: Wildcats shock Gators, end nation's longest active winning streak

After more than three decades, the streak is finally over in a disastrous night for the Gators



After 31 years, it's finally over.
Florida fell 27-16 Saturday night to visiting Kentucky, ending the Gators' 31-game winning streak over the Wildcats -- the longest active winning streak over an opponent in FBS. Their last win prior to Saturday night was Nov. 15, 1986, four years before Steve Spurrier took over in Gainesville, for some perspective. It's the first win for Kentucky in Gainesville since 1979, which was when Jimmy Carter lived in the White House, if you needed a little more of that perspective to soak in from this moment.

Big 10 did not help its rep this weekend, with 7 out of 13 teams who played losing to unranked non-conference opponents, Wisconsin among them.


I am sorry to say that this Bama team might be Saban's best ever.   Bama looking scary good.


Vandy went to Southbend and put fear deep into Irish fans' hearts, but didn't pull off the upset in the end.  .   Alas, so close . . .   Voters in the polls might ask, however, why is ND ranked number 8 in the country when perpetually lowly Vanderbilt almost beats them at ND? If this game were taken as how ND would fare if it played in the SEC, ND would be a middle of the pack team at best.   Then again, I suspect that about ND almost every year.

Penn State fought back hard for the win against Kent State!  Getting a score of 63-10 is not easy!  :lol: :lol: :P     But yeah, Big 10 teams are supposed to beat those week 2 opponents.

ND stays at number 8. What a joke.  If ND had lost to Vanderbilt at home, you think they would have fallen more than 5 slots in the polls?   I doubt it, given the apparent policy of always pretending ND is much better than it is.     Gah, the bullshit about ND every year is vomitous.

Notre Dame along with the SEC, are media darlings and ND being a "Catholic" school, they have a lot of supporters.

The SEC has earned its rep as the consistently best conference in college football.   ND's rep is just all pretend BS.

ND was a powerhouse in the day, but, yeah, it's a ratings grab now.

Miami demolishes North Carolina 47-10.  Caines defense scores 3 touchdowns on turnovers and cause 2 more turnovers that result in touchdowns.

Neither am I, but as A Michigan fan any team that's kicking Ohio State's ass is all right by me.

Texas A&M is in the Top 25 but the rest of the schedule so far has been week. They don't really have a potential tough game until LSU which isn't until November 3rd. Seems the SEC isn't quite the conference powerhouse this year like all it's fans think it is.

What gets me is they always schedule a cupcake the week before they play Auburn because they're a bunch of pussies, starting at the top with Satan Saban.

They essentially get two weeks' rest, playing a live scrimmage in between.  Less exertion and far less risk of injury.

The national title means less and less each year as teams reach the playoffs having faced little adversity.

The sycofans don't care, they just want wins.
