Fire away in the comments below.
Things weren't the most exciting today aside from the Oregon State/Stanford matchup. ESPN needs to stop scheduling teams with quarterback issues for its marquee Thursday game. That's two years in a row that an SEC quarterback wet the bed on national television on opening Thursday's big game.
Last year Mississippi State's Michael Henig all but handed the ball six times to the LSU defense. South Carolina's Tommy Beecher wasn't much better this year in tossing four picks into the belly of the North Carolina State defense. His replacement rallied the team to a 34-0 shutout that looked nothing like it was scored.
Another quarterback from South Dakota State tossed at least five interceptions tonight.
Stanford's bear of a tailback Toby Gerhart was impressive. For a big guy he's got some wheels and had a nice season with the Stanford baseball team this year which the broadcasters were quick to remind tonight.
Is Stanford rising?
Did Buffalo really destroy UTEP 42-17? Wow.
Thumbs up to Georgia Tech, thumbs down to Ryan Perilloux.
Thumbs down to the NCAA's prohibition against "Kickoff/Preseason Classic" type games. College football does itself no favors with less than compelling matchups on the Thursday before the big Saturday. The conferences and broadcasters should be getting together with the schools to patch together a fair process to pair two or four quality teams in interesting Thursday night games.
