Check out the slate here.
I'll be out of town, don't know when I'll return, but obviously will be tuning into the games.
Things to look for:
Can Ohio State cover the spread against Miami of Ohio? Who is their back? What will Ted Ginn do? Can Justin Zwick in his 1-game tryout finally move the passing offense?
Will Bowling Green fall flat against Wisconsin's defense or can they continue to look like a legitimate national offense?
Does Tennessee swiftly end the Darrell Hackney hype?
Watch USC/Hawai'i. What trends emerge on offense and defense against an unusual opponent on the road? Does the new hydra-like offensive coordinator position thing... know what its doing? What will Reggie and Matt do? What USC freshmen and reserves make names for themselves?
Will Vince Young have another Michigan performance against LA-Lafayette?
What to make of new Nebraska quarterback Zac Taylor? Is their offense still a mess?
Can Texas A&M escape Clemson? What will Reggie McNeal do?
How ugly will the Notre Dame/Pittsburgh game be?
Can Auburn live up to its promise and blow Georgia Tech out of the water?
Will Mike Price year II show continued progress at UTEP?
And for Sunday's games---
Is Perry Patterson a great young quarterback that nobody's talking about, or a dud? Watch Jason Gwaltney's debut for West Virginia. He's behind another pretty good back, so he may be limited early on.
Can Brian Brohm get over the nerves of his first start and keep Louisville's offensive machine rolling against Kentucky?
Can BYU's super receiver Todd Watkins light up Boston College?
Will Colorado/Colorado State be yet another thriller?
How will Nate Longshore do in his California debut? Will the Bears play backup Joseph Ayoob? What will Marshawn Lynch do? Why in the world are they playing Sacramento State?
Tune into Boise State/UGA. No questions, just answers.
I have no thoughts on Florida. It will take them a few games to really get a grasp of the Urban Meyer offense. Until then they're just playing ball kind of blind.
Does Navy still have that offensive magic of last year? Can Maryland contain their run?
Can NC State upset a vulnerable Virginia Tech? Tech's defense looks ferocious, but so does the Wolfpack's defensive line against a pretty shaky Marcus Vick.
Feel free to comment below on whatever strikes you and I'll respond to the more interesting comments when I get back.
Welcome back, college football!
I'm still figuring out a daily schedule for what will go on at Resource during the week, but count on my weekly Heisman and Top Teams rankings/lists, of course, lots of brief analysis of interesting stats, controversial banter, some more Katrina updates (Outside the Lines on ESPN did a nice show tonight about the Tulane team's relocation---pretty sad), and much more.
