Thoughts on the Weekend, Week 8

Week 8 of the college football season didn’t feature the upsets that we all love, especially in the top 10, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t plenty to glean from it. The #1 team faced a test at home coming off of an emotional game, points were put up in Conference USA like it was Arena League, and the little guy darling went down hard on Thursday night.

Post Week 7 Heisman Ballot

In light of losing track last week of where we were in the college football season, I’ve decided to change up my title wording a bit. Regardless, as for the actual content to be featured here I think you’ll find that for the first time all year you’ll find some actual shakeup in my ballot. With two of the favorites going head to head, and the third of the clear favorites having one of his worst games in two years things are certainly more interesting at the top.

Top 25, October 13 Edition

At this point in the season you have to start to respect the undefeated teams regardless of conference, this week all 10 teams that are undefeated have a spot in my top 25. As for the actual results, last week featured three upsets in my top 5, six in the top 25, and another half dozen who didn’t play at all. With only 13 teams winning there was plenty of shakeup in my poll, even at the top.

Thoughts on the Weekend, Week 7

For all of the drama and excitement that last week lacked, I think this past weekend definitely made up for it. We saw probably the best game of the year so far, a top 5 team go down at home in primetime, and a couple more little guy schools continue their undefeated run. The best part? In the aftermath there is still some colossal matchups coming down the pike.

What is going on at Auburn?

Auburn fired its Offensive Coordinator, Tony Franklin, this week, just 6 games into the implementation of a brand new offense. Head Coach Tommy Tuberville maintained in his press conference that it was simply about results, and while I’m not going to argue that the results really weren’t there I can’t help but look at this situation and realize that it was the wrong move on several different levels. In fact, the whole situation just reeks from several different aspects.

Wednesday Weekend Primer, Week 6, er 7

Week 6 7 comes upon us and the games are starting to get pretty interesting. As the season wears on and pretenders drop by the wayside it becomes inevitable that those at the top will eventually have to play each other. Sure, it’s nice for the Big 12 that they have 4 teams in the top 10 but eventually 3 of those teams have to play each other. The same goes for most of the SEC teams you see at the top of the polls. Week 6 gives us an excellent chance to see several highly touted teams clash in an ultimate contender/pretender separation.

Week 6 Heisman Ballot

Perhaps I’ve been putting “Clearinghouse Chaos” on too many of my posts, so I’m going to distinguish my Heisman Ballots in the extremely creative way of attaching the current week to the title. As I noted in yesterday’s thoughts on the weekend there wasn’t a whole lot of exciting action and with such little action among the polls there was also very little action among the Heisman favorites.
