1. The Pac 12 is Back and deeper than ever.
When you're in the SEC, you expect to start 0-2. Getting dismantled by Mississippi State in Starkville is not exactly how you keep your job in this conference. Don't look now but Auburn host giant killers Louisiana-Monroe this weekend before LSU comes to town.
You know something is amiss when Wisconsin cans their offensive line coach two weeks into the season. The Badgers are 1-1 after losing to Oregon State and beating Northern Iowa by 5. I don't even need to explain what the deal with Penn State is. Nebraska lost to a close one to UCLA. Michigan beat Air Force by 6. Purdue is now without QB Robert Marve. Did I mention that the Big Ten have only 10 teams eligible for the postseason? On the bright side…
Losing Tyler Wilson for the second half didn't exactly help the Razorbacks in their quest to knock off UL Monroe. The Hogs look like mincemeat for the Crimson Tide this up coming weekend. Wilson might play against the Tide this weekend. If he does, the Tide must put the game away early. These are the things that upsets are made of.
Kansas State's shellacking of Miami over the weekend was a statement. First, the ACC is awful. Second, Kansas State is not going anywhere this season. The students in Manhattan will have a reason to come out and Wabash at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. On the 22nd, the Wildcats travel to Norman to take on the 5th ranked Sooners. Last season, the Sooners took the game in Manhattan 58-17.
If there's anybody outside of Happy Valley who wants to see this program recover, it's me. I do not see the Nittany Lions going .500 without winning each of the next four games. If there are six games that Penn State can win they would be against Navy, Temple, Illinois, Northwestern, Purdue and Indiana. Right now, I have them finishing 4-8.
20. Savannah State may be the most overmatched cupcake team I've ever watched.
