Folks with pre-season doubts about Alabama’s defense were right. It’s hardly all bad, but clearly there’s still a lot of growing up to do in the secondary. Young and inexperienced special teams players have been more solid than not, and for that I’m thankful.
I’m interested to see what Auburn does with the Ryan Mallett attack. Have to wait until October 16.
All right, Boise State beat Oregon State. Now let’s everyone not talk about them again until they get to a BCS bowl game they’d rather not be in and beat an opponent who would probably rather not be there either.
I can’t remember the SEC East ever being such an unpredictable mess. Conditions to dethrone Florida might be as favorable this year as they’re ever going to be, but does anyone want it?
Not Georgia. I thought Mark Richt would be fine this year, but now that the Bulldogs are eliminated from the SEC race in September, I’m not so sure.
Ditto the Big 12 South. Almost anyone’s title there too.
Charles, my long-suffering ACC apologist friend, I try every week to look for the bright spots in your conference, but I think it might be harder this year than it’s ever been.
Congratulations to #25 Nevada, who is ranked for the first time since 1948!
