Sweet deal for Brent Venables. 6 x $7+ million deal, almost a $5 million/year raise from what he was making at Clemson.

Yesterday was wonderful:

Navy, South Dakota State, and Montana State all won.

The latter meet next week—not sure who I want to win, as I genuinely like them both, albeit for non-football reasons. South Dakota State has an exceptionally tasty on-campus dairy bar, and Montana State is in a town I love. Guess I’ll just for “State” with this game.

My favorite time of year, other than perhaps opening weekend.
Just grinds my gears that I only get TSN1 so don't get to see as many of them as I would like.

I'm suddenly feeling pessimistic that the CFP will actually be played with Omicron doing it's thing. Texas A&M just pulled out of the Gator Bowl due to not enough players, due in part to Covid.

Bob Stoops just watched his son catch a TD in the last game he'll ever coach for Oklahoma, and the 1st game he's coached in 5 years.

That has be his proudest moment ever as a coach.

GREAT MOMENT. The bad part about watching this game is realizing how much Lincoln Riley under utilized Marvin Mims and Kennedy Brooks all year. What might have been had he had his head in the season.

Oregon is getting their asses kicked. It’s hard to believe this team was in a playoff spot for a chunk of the season. All based on a lucky win vs Ohio st.

I'm a fan of the beat down but Oregon does have a lot of key players not playing in the game.

Might have something to do with this

Down 30+players between injuries, opt outs, and transfers.

I can’t tell if this game is really good or really really bad. It's fun to watch though.

So with the World Juniors cancelled is TSN really showing old junior games on TSN1 and put the college football national semifinals on TSN3/4/5?

That opening drive was bama kicking cincy in the teeth and letting them know it won’t stop all day. Feeling like the inevitable is going to happen, can your first drive of the game be a must score?

Red zone FG’s won’t win you many games. Fingers crossed they can do better.

that 3rd and 14 was their chance but they let Bama get 13, then Robinson ran over someone for the first down.

4th and goal at the 3, going to be an interesting call.

Hope they can stay in it, want more non big conference teams to get in or expand the playoffs, so this is a big game.
