36 Random Observations from Week one of College Football

Posted by mvetack on September 7, 2010

First off I had to work till 5 on Saturday (dumb) so some stuff I saw on highlights, some on Tivo, and some live.  So here we go…

1.  Week one of college football is great but it still sucks that half the games are terrible “pre season” match ups for some of the higher ranked teams.  See Alabama vs San Jose St.

2. Mark May still annoys me.

3.  The Lou Holtz Lisp is better than ever.

4.  What happened to Tate Forcier?

5. Like most people, I hate how college football is set up without a tournament or posts eason of any kind.  With that said, the current set up does produce extra energy and desperation in big games week one in the season that you do not see in the NFL.

6. TCU vs Oregon State, ECU vs Tulsa, and Boise State vs Va Tech were the three best game of the week.

7.  Kellen Moore looks similar to that of a donkey, but he can ball.

8.  ECU’s center field logo of the state of North Carolina filled in with the purple and gold pirate was pretty sweet.

9.  Navy is PATHETIC for having all those empty red zone trips.  A couple made FGs and they easily beat Maryland.

10.  TCU’s Jeremy Kerley and South Carolina’s Marcus Lattimore are the front runners of coolest names in college football.

11.  Presbyterian’s backwards skip pass was the most creative play of the week and maybe the year.

12.  If Jacory Harris does win the Heisman like so many people say he has a chance at, will he be the skinniest to ever win the award?

13.  South Carolina’s balanced attack, against SouthernMiss, was pretty impressive.  It was only Southern Miss but still looked better than they have in previous season openers.

14.  Utah quietly is good again.  Took down number 15 Pitt in Overtime.  Watch out for the Utes!

15.  3 of the Combat uniforms were shown off on prime time nationally televised games.  I’m guessing thats when all the teams will show them off.

16.  TCU’s combat unis were alright.  Nothing special.  I like the whit helmets but those will for sure be on some list 20 years of now of grossest uniforms in sports.

17.  Virginia Tech’s reminded both me and my brother of Halloween Jerseys.  The “motherboard” type imagery in the numbers on Tech’s jerseys looked like flames from a distance.  I love Virginia Tech’s normal jerseys with the maroon.  Kinda cool for one night though.

18.  Boise State’s grew on me.  I wish there was a little more Orange in there some where or that you could read the Boise State on the chest a little bettter (maybe thats where the orange should have come in).  The helmets were awesome and overall I like them more than their normal ones.  Good work on that one Nike.

19.  Kirk Herbstreit is turning into quite the announcer.  Really liking him in the booth with Brent Musburger.

20.  Really upset I went to bed, due to work at 7 AM, before the final of the Tarheels LSU game.   I guess the Heels made a charge.

21.  Florida, that was pathetic.

22. Notre Dame looked pretty good.  Not dominate, not amazing, but like a respectable team.  Could make some noise this year.

23.  Was waiting for Boise State, Virginia Tech, or TCU to score a touchdown and put their gloves together to show off the cool little image it creates.  Didn’t see it happen though.

24.  Georgia Tech is Navy but with very athletic and high caliber recruits.  Tech was 2 of 8 for 12 total passing yards but still put up 41 points.  372 yards of rushing helps.

25.  Jacksonville State for twoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!

26.  Tyrod Taylor did EVERYTHING for Virginia Tech.  It is a shame that one week into the season and he does not have a realistic chance at playing for a National Title because of the stupid BCS set up.  Losing to the number 3 team in the nation in early September should not knock you out of contention.

27.  Denard Robinson is the new Pat White.  Notre Dame is going to have to make the guy throw early.  Letting Michigan have success running the ball early will open up the play action for Robinson.  Shut down the run early will make Robinson pass on passing downs and show that he is not a great passing QB.

28.  In NCAA Football 06-08 video games, North Texas would always become a top 5 team a couple years down the road.  I am still waiting for that to happen in real life.  A 35-10 loss to Clemson does not help.

29.  I want Kansas State’s Daniel Thomas on my NFL teams (Broncos) depth chart at Running Back.

30.  Oregons uniforms once again are my favorite.  Love the gray pants and the feathers are back on the shoulders.  Very nice Oregon Very Nice.

31.  USC’s number one QB going into last season (Corp) made his debut for the Richmond Spiders.  18-32 for 183 and no TDs.  Virginia pulled away in the second half.

32.  Oklahoma won by only 7 vs Utah State?!?!?! really??? wow.  Not Impressed.

33.  Army won people.  Watch out.

34.  Momentum means nothing,  with how quick it can change (see Boise vs Va Tech) does it really exist after all?

35.  ECU’s hail mary to 6 foot 8 – 974 pound WR was an amazing end to a video game type football game.  I think it was 10 straight possessions with TDs.  Simply awesome.

36.  Julio Jones made a great one handed catch, still I think he is over rated.
