The Broncos and the Bulldogs don’t kick off till 7:45 pm MST. To that end, there are some fun matchups to fill the day.
There are a bunch of Noon Eastern games that may pique your interest:
No. 8 Tennessee at No. 25 LSU
No. 4 Michigan at Indiana
No. 17 TCU at No. 19 Kansas — This is where ESPN Game Day spent the morning, deservedly so. Coach Lance Leipold has Kansas on a hot start at 5-0. The last time Kansas started 5-0 back in 2009 they proceeded to drop seven straight games. TCU is 4-0 coming into the matchup after throttling Oklahoma.
Another possible game of interest that kicks off at 1:30 pm MST is Auburn at No. 2 Georgia. A former Boise State coach may add ‘former’ to the Auburn line of the resume as well.
Feel free to kick back and relax and banter about. We are just glad you’re here, spending time talking about college football.
No. 16 BYU at Notre Dame kicks off at 5:30 MST. That could be a good warmup for the Broncos game.
Always thought Kelly was a terrible hire at LSU. He just doesn’t fit the culture at all!!
Texas demolished Oklahoma.
I’m torn between hoping Auburn pulls off an upset and hoping they get demolished. Love Harsin or hate him, he didn’t get a fair chance at Auburn and I’m unsure if I want him to win just to thumb his nose at their boosters- or get blown out and put everyone out of their misery by getting fired after.
I share the same feeling. Harsin is a hard guy to love or hate. I saw an article with five or six of our last BSU qbs and they did not paint a pretty picture of his character. All said he was a good coach but unanimously said he was very difficult to play for. I don’t think he got a fair shot at Auburn and for that I want them to win. But also putting this whole thing out of it’s misery might be for the best. Any guesses on what he might do next? I saw an article… Read more »
He needs a job in the west. Arizona State seems like a good fit, and he might be the only coach worth anything willing to wait out the coming sanctions – which would give him time to build the program he wants.
Colorado seems like a terrible fit, because….well, they seem a lot like Illinois – academics first – and I’m not sure how well their university culture would mesh with Harsin.
There’s always the possibility he winds up at another MW school, too.
I think it’s more likely he goes to be an OC somewhere for a few years.
Nebraska probably isn’t a great fit. I think he’d have a better chance of succeeding there than Auburn – Big Ten West is usually pretty wide open. But he doesn’t have the Midwestern connections. Still, it’ll be easier for him to break into those connections in the Midwest than it is in the Deep South.
This is where we find out what to expect for the rest of the season. Was the second half last week just a fluke or did this team turn the corner? We’ll know by the end of this game.
Just realized this isn’t the game thread. Oh well. Y’all know what I mean.
