That's right sports fans.....The OT College Football Thread is LIVE! 

I won't be around as much as I'd like for a bit, but you all can start talking up your favorite teams or talking smack about the other guys teams. 

Gotta start out talking to about a guy who I think will have a stellar season this year and that's LSU RB Leonard Fournette. This guy has the potential to be a VERY special player. 

 

6' 1" and 225. Dude runs a 4.35 40. He can run through, over, or around defenders with equal ease. He's a monster!

Let's get ready to ruuuummmmble.....


Tarheels and the "Lamecocks" in Charlotte tonite! 

Gators going with QB Treon Harris against New Mexico State Saturday. I'm guessing that local phenom Will Grier will replace him by the time they play the vols.

Speaking of UT, I'm getting REALLY tired of all the smack coming out of Knoxvegas about how this is their year to beat Florida. Well, I heard the same thing last year...(and the year before...the year before...and the year before)....yet victory against Florida has eluded Big Orange since 2004. 

I personally think Butch Jones is a good guy and the team has bought into to his plan, but you still have to go to The Swamp to beat The Gators, who just so happen to have a VERY formidable defense again this year, especially the defensive backs.

Go Frogs!  I'm currently trying to bait a friend/retired judge/UMinn defensive back into a bet on tonight's game!  So far he's being a kitty cat.

Boom!  My buddy took the bet and 13 points. He wanted 19, but I figured 13 based on the 17.5 line is pretty good.

What's on the line is:

1) a case of benton lane pinot noir to the winner, and...
2) If I win, he will throw in a set of hand painted (by his lovely wife) wine glasses; or
3) If he wins, I will throw in a drybox of 5.56 rounds.  Should be a good game.

GO FROGS!!!!!!

Good day. Saw a lot of teams play some and my beloved Gators play the entire game. Nice to see the Florida offense clicking, even if it was against lowly New Mexico State, but thee seems to be a different vibe this year, compared to the last few.

But...even today the media is reporting there's still a "QB conundrum" at Florida between last years starter, Treon Harris and red shirt Freshman phenom Will Grier. Really??? Loco

I think both QB's played a pretty good game, and in fairness, I can certainly see where yanking a guy out and putting him back in later like the coaching staff did with the two can be hard on a QB finding his groove, but the more the game went on, the more Mr. Grier separated himself from Mr. Harris. Clearly.....
Grier has a lightening quick release, great accuracy and was able to go through his progressions and read defenses, where Harris seemingly held on to the ball a bit too long and had trouble finding open receivers. Harris didn't have a bad game really, actually pretty good "statistically", it just seemed the game came easier to Will Grier.  
Grier did have a fumble for a loss and put the defense, which played great, in a bad position though. Don't get me wrong, I like Harris a lot. I think he's a great kid and super athlete, but Grier is The Man moving forward. The media can keep stirring the pot of conundrum all they want.... 

Shout out to Texas A&M yesterday and they rolled over Zona State. "The Chief" has the talented defense playing lights out. MUCHO improved from last years squad that frankly looked confused and out of position last year. The little I saw of that game, showed the defense SWARMING to the Sun Devil ball carrier on nearly every play. 
Myles Garret maybe the best defensive player in the country this year. He and Hall on the other end are gonna make a lot of offenses MISERABLE this year. They are absolute monsters and there isn't a better DE tandem in the country now. 

Running game got going better than last year from what I witnessed too. 
Carson looked good, from what I saw. 

SEC held their own yesterday. (And Thursday when the Lamecocks BARELY beat NC.) The Game Cocks have issues this year on both sides of the ball.

Hopefully the Gators will continue to improve. Their much "discussed" O-Line actually played pretty well for youngsters. The "D" woke up in the second half. Might end up being a decent year after all. There is a different "air" about the team with the Chimp gone. More gooder! Excellent

Yes, Ric. The young O line played pretty well....against New Mexico State's defense. That position will be our Achilles heel this year I fear. 

Agree the defense looked better in second half too. I think they brought more pressure on the NMSU quarter back in the second half. 
Good to see LB Antonio Morrison back out there. Great story. Line backers are lacking this year. DB's are maybe the best Florida has ever had and that's saying a lot. Defensive lineman Cece Jefferson is gonna be a STAR....make that...super nova for Florida too.
