Good blood week potential.

Really more excited to see how some of these early starters shake out in a couple weeks when they play better teams.

Won another $10 for Colorado to cover. Nebraska is -14 favorite against Northern Illinois, and they lost last time they played.....I think NI can keep it close enough.

Is there a reason for being in Hangouts during the regular season? I can understand the off-season, but only getting 2 weeks in general OT seems low.

I disagree with the commentary about Washington's passing being bad because of rain.

After the storm had passed and the game resumed, very little precipitation came down. In fact, the concrete and metal surfaces in the stands were almost bone-dry when the game finished. The field surface would have been damp, but we're not talking about a soaking-wet low-visibility situation.
Besides the storm itself, Seattle's weather on Saturday was quite pleasant. The early day was muggy, and the persistent cloudiness trapped the heat. I was very comfortable outdoors at 1am Sunday in shorts and a hoodie.

Also, even had it been pouring at the Cal game, the Apple Cup last year still wouldn't be a clear warning against passing in inclement weather. The only team that had an unusually bad passing game that day was WSU. Washington's passing was happily mediocre like always!

We pray for blood week. Let the blood flow free and chaos reign supreme.
As much as I want a blood week (and Lord knows I do) I just don't see it happening this week. You need feisty teams and Indiana ain't feisty.

Only upset I feel is even remotely possible is UK/UF.

Jason Kirk agrees with me (from the Watch Grid newsletter)
Years of assembling the Watch Grid (your weekly guide to the likely most watch-worthy college football games throughout each schedule) has led to me becoming defensive of each weekend's slate.

"Every college football weekend is a good college football weekend," this newsletter frequently insists, a philosophy that faces some stiff tests from time to time.

2019's Week 3 is among the stiffest I can recall. But it'll be fun!! You'll all see!!!

As always, remember the Watch Grid does not base things entirely on team quality. The Watch Grid would often rather watch two bad teams goof through overtime than watch a competent team handle business. National and conference stakes are still worth consideration, but Week 3 does not have those.

Attending the MSU/ASU game. Bummed I’ll forego the always-entertaining ¡El Assico!, but otherwise a good week to miss judging by that slate.

For the record, I don't do the podcast- that's andycapps 's department.

Noted. I didn't watch the game or much of anything this weekend other than highlights due to being out of pocket. But thanks for the feedback.

I wish I had seen this game though because I appreciate a wild game.

STONE COLD LOCK: Alabama’s defense is impeccable as always, but Carolina’s new QB is unscouted and pulls off surprising plays. Meanwhile the Carolina D steps up and gives the offense a chance. Final score Carolina 72 Alabama 3.

Think my TCU frogs go down today away to Purdue. We looked awful week 1 and this is the type of game we have lost recently

Purdue 17
TCU 13

We could have done a little better, but we did get some points. Let's hope the defense can stop Alabama a few times.

Damnit that was a fair call but I wish that Carolina kicker TD would have stood. Tyler White is solid. Ballsy play call too from ol’ Muschamp.

Oh no GT what is you doing. At least GT puts out engineers and scientists while Citadel just puts out assholes with an inferiority complex. Go Cougars.
