Might as well get this started. Oh hey, Clemson and Alabama are by far the two best teams. Again. Oklahoma wont miss a beat on offense, with it's potentially third different Heisman winning QB in as many years. I guess there will be drama to see who will be the 4th team in the playoff.

In other news, Miami just named a freshman as week 1 starter, beating out the incumbent and a highly rated transfer from OSU. New year, new coach, same Miami.

Oklahoma will be really really good. I’m not so sure Hurts will be Kyler Murray 2.0 though. But yeah, they’ve got a good shot at the playoff. The PAC 12 doesn’t have a playoff team. The Big 10 probably won’t...Michigan is good but not elite, I don’t see Ohio State being a playoff team this year but they are still pretty loaded. Both those teams feel like 10-2 type teams that probably get left out.

Seems like the obvious story lines are:

Maybe UGa gets the SEC 2 teams in the playoff?

Will Gus Malzahn get back on track at Auburn or is he cooked?

Is the Nebraska hype for real?

Is Texas actually back?

How soon does USC fire Clay Helton?

How far away from being “back” is FSU and if they have another bad year is Taggert done?

In case you need another reason to hate Ohio State, they're trying to trademark the word "the".

Yeah. GT’s offense looks about like you’d expect a team full of option players trying to not run the option would look.

GT's offense was always going to look terrible. I actually thought their defense looked improved enough to win some games in the Coastal this year.

They have a roster full of triple option OL and QBs, it's going to take a bit of recruiting to fix that. But to be fair they were going against the #1 team in the country. I'm not ready to write GT off just yet, I think Clemson is going to embarrass everyone in the ACC this year.

It's why I don't think Lawrence can win the Heisman, I think there will only be 1-2 games in the regular season that he plays in the 4th quarter and it wouldn't surprise me to see him on the bench in 75% of their ACC games.

Lawrence won't win the Heisman because Etienne is going to have a better season than him.

Etienne is a beast, I don’t argue that. But it’s been quite some time since an RB won the heisman. I’d still lean that a QB wins it. But yeah...Etienne is gonna put up stupid numbers this year

4 years ago. But yeah, the Heisman has basically become who is the best QB, unless an RB is having a historic year. Which Etienne could have. After all, Etienne was the ACC POY last year.

Yeah 4 years is right and more recent than I thought. But it’s like 3 RBs since 2000, the rest are QBs.

Hard to figure out a lot of teams after just one week. How much of a team looking subpar in week 1 is due to first game rust?

I can tell you with 100% certainty after 2 weeks that Michigan is not the 7th best team in the country. Fucking overrated B1G.

I know that last year was a great season for them, but they didn't exactly beat anyone great. They did beat WVU in their bowl game, but that team was without Will Grier, and there was already rumors of Dana Holgorsen leaving to be the Houston coach. Syracuse lost a lot of productive members from their 2018 team. I think there was only one pre-season prognosticator that actually looked through all the rosters and didn't buy into the hype and momentum carrying over into the 2019 season.

Hopefully we'll continue to grow as a team and keep on rolling with a win in Morgantown next week. My biggest worry with this team is that we might get up on teams and take our foot off the gas resulting in teams getting back in the game, which we saw last year as well. I'm cool with being the number two team in the Atlantic for now. Clemson is currently on an unprecedented run that even their program going back to the Danny Ford era hasn't seen.

Yeah that’s why I didn’t get the preseason hype for Cuse. Not that we deserved hype or anything, but they didn’t/don’t seem superior to any of the other non-Clemson Atlantic division teams.

LOL the refs just called a phantom 12 men in formation penalty on Texas A&M that negated a safety. Call was overturned on replay, but the safety was wiped away. These refs are garbage.

FSU. Tennessee & UCLA don't have the recent history of success of Florida State (Tennessee is one of the most overrated programs of all time.) For FSU to be just so fucking bad is shocking.
