Time to turn our attention to week two of College Football 2006.
What was week one about? Well, getting the season off right.
We saw Miami and Florida State battle once again.
The Pac-10 and SEC exchanged a series of blowouts with the SEC coming out on top 2-1. California floundered.
The "best teams" talk and lion's share of highlights already appear to be coalescing around Ohio State, Texas, USC, Notre Dame, Auburn and West Virginia. Everyone else will have to fight for attention and prominence.
Oklahoma and Notre Dame won in disappointing early performances.
Rule 2-3-5-e appears to be robbing the games of a good handful of plays with little noticeable change in game length.
Troy Smith is already on fire, LaMarr Woodley went gonzo on an opposing quarterback, Percy Harvin is already Florida's most productive offensive player, Miami/Florida State has lost its lustre, Louisville's Michael Bush broke his leg and is out for the season, Texas' starting cornerback and a reserve linebacker were arrested and are suspended for this weekend's game against Ohio State, the monkey is off Tennessee's back, at least for one game, Ben Olson lived up to billing in thrashing Utah, Colorado lost to a I-AA team, Central Michigan's coach makes really bad decisions sometimes, Minnesota can still run the ball, USC has robbed us of much suspense about their inevitable decline post Matt/Reggie/LenDale and Louisville simply cannot scoring.
