    How bout them Dawgs!!  Got back from Charlotte yesterday afternoon.  Great game and atmosphere.  Looking forward to returning to Athens this weekend. 

    Side note, I left a Pearl Jam sticker on my seat (as I always do in stadiums/sports venues that I visit).

    Great defense, hard to get a read on the O this early in the year.  Not scoring an offensive TD can be concerning, unless Clemson is literally an all timer of a D.  

    Unless there are only three teams with 1 or 0 losses, I don't know how Clemson makes the playoffs.  Their schedule is just awful the rest of the way.

    Ya the ACC took a beating this weekend.  I don't see Clemson getting in at all even if they win out.  I think the Dawgs will be fine offensively going forward.  They had their top 2 TE's out and their top 3 WRs out.  Wish they'd run the ball some more.

    Oh.. I didn't realize they were down those skill players.  That makes a difference.

    Good first week.  (First real week)
    As much as I love to hate on Notre Dame, Brian Kelly trying to quote John McKay is awesome on a few levels.

    Brian Kelly...good at recruiting and coaching. Needs to recognize his strong suits and stick to them. Joke telling, comedy and humor are not his suits.

    Couple interesting games this week.  Oregon/Ohio St, Iowa/Iowa St.  The Washington/Michigan game would have been more interesting had Washington not laid an egg this past weekend.

    I am somewhat surprised that Oregon/Ohio St game is still a noon kickoff. That Iowa/Iowa St game will be the game of the day I think.

    Not sure if it is by design, though I suspect it is. Make a west coast team travel cross country and hit them with a super early game. There is a real advantage in doing that.

    You don't think the networks are a big part of the scheduling? The Washington Michigan game in Ann Arbor is at 8pm.

    Oh, I do, but....come on. There has to be something more to it as well. The best chance the B1G has making the CFP is to have OSU making it there undefeated, of course. That said, a 1 loss OSU team still likely makes it in. The team most likely to beat OSU this season based on that schedule is probably Oregon. So you take your toughest opponent and schedule them at noon (local time, 9am their time). That is absolutely an advantage!! And given the way teams look for any edge, there is not a chance that the starting time is not partially intentional for that reason.

    If you go to Eleven Warriors,  everyone is complaining that it's a noon game and that blunts home field.  Night games are far louder and more difficult for the opposition.  I think you're reading too much into the scheduling. You're basically saying Fox has its thumb on the scale for Ohio state in order for them to make the playoffs.  I'm not that cynical

    I was basing my comment more along the lines that typically, they move a game like this to the 3:30 or 7:30 kickoff. Especially if you look at the other games for week 2, there isn't another real marquee game. If you look at Week 3, #11 Penn State vs #25 Auburn is at 7:30, which is were a top 25 out of conference game should be slotted.

    There has to be a reason for it, but regardless it will be a great game to watch.

    It's because they have Texas A&M at Colorado at 330? They couldn't make that noon.  They don't have a prime time game this week, they have baseball.  That must be a contractual agreement I would guess.  I think once September starts,  they go baseball prime time though the playoffs.

    I forgot about the baseball angle, good point. 

    Edit - I missed it was AT Colorado, my bad. Well, that Texas A&M is likely going to be so bad that it shouldn't be on Fox.

    West coast teams get f'd over consistently.  You don't see many eastern teams going west for a 730 start but certainly see things work the other way around much more often with the early ass start.
    The Pac12 specifically screwed itself with regularity, as just another hallmark of their horrible stewardship by the (thankfully) departed commissioner, Larry Scott.  I don't think it is possible to do a worse job.  Total piece of crap.   

    I watched part of that Oregon game on Saturday.  They are going to get slammed at the horseshoe.

    The Big 10 loves having their premier games at noon for whatever reason
  • JojoRiceJojoRice Kennesaw, GAPosts: 2,104
    Starting times are dictated by the tv networks.  Fox currently has a contract with the Big 10 so they get to decide which game they want to air.  It's a similar deal to what CBS has with the SEC.

    I just can't believe they can't stop the run. They were gashed last week by Ibrahim and again today. Granted, both pretty good backs but still.

    I don’t think Clemson is getting in either. Clemson’s offense isn’t looking good at all this year. Even after this week’s blowout, their QB (I can’t spell or pronounce his name) still looked like a struggle and if it was against a rated team it would have been a different story.

    I think they honestly hope that Donte Williams (CBs coach, lead recruiter, interim head coach) will grab the job and make it his.

    I think that the dude from Cincinnati is a natural match with our AD - his former AD.

    We will see.  Always interesting.
