I don't like Nick Saban and I don't like Jim Harbaugh. That being said, I want them to face each other at the end

Notre Dame at Texas was a very entertaining game.  Both of the Texas quarterbacks are better than Brandon Harris.

Brandon Harris' poor play at quarterback will be the reason that Leonard Fournette won't win the Heisman trophy.  The ineptitude of his QB may even get Les Miles run out of Baton Rouge.

We have great confidence that coach Orgeron will do just that.

Nope.  Michigan State has lost seven games in a row (for the first time in 34 years) to fall to 0-6 in conference (2-7 overall), tying them with Rutgers for last place among the Big Ten's fourteen teams.  However, those two perfect records cannot stand as the Scarlet Knights come to East Lansing for the Big Ten Sadness Bowl next week.  With #6 Ohio State and #12 Penn State still on the schedule, Sparty is likely to go 3-9 this season.  Remember when Michigan State was ranked #8 on September 18?

Oh dear Bob. I know it's all about the TV money but I simply cannot grok that Rutgers is in the Big 10 (a/k/a Midwest corn belt).

Thank Bob my alma mater is a 1-AA school (oops, PC says FCS School) with no visions of going anywhere.

Your Raiders are 3-5 overall (2-2 in the Patriot League).  That's a bit of a letdown after winning the conference championship (6-0 in conference) and winning two playoff games to make it to the national quarterfinals last season.

The one true campus upheaval that captured everyone regardless of politics.

Fall. 1982 (neither Swedes, Mexicans, nor moose were involved in these credits, and noone was bitten). My team had won a place in the newly-expanded 1-AA championship bracket. Our then-President (George Langdon, a Yalie) announced that Colgate would honor the Ivy League tradition (I've never seen Colgate in the Ivy standings) and not take part in the 1-AA playoffs as playoffs were beneath "true academic Universities".

Campus went bug-nuts. Langdon's multiple effigies suffered all of the really ugly mediaeval tortures (at least the ones that weren't burnt on sight). He backed down within 24 hours.

Colgate's true issue with "College Football" is 1932, when the only bowl game was the Rose Bowl. Undefeated, un-tied, un scored-upon, un-invited. My maternal grandfather was a Colgate senior during that travesty.

Why I'm typing this paean to an organization I've formally told to never send me another piece of mail is beyond me.
