Whoaaaah Nellie!

The first Saturday of the college football year is upon us.  We're already three days in now, but obviously today is the headline maker.


Feel free to leave comments below, I'll be working mostly at College Football FanHouse, we'll have some "chat" software up to get all interactive on you as well as the usual flurry of entries as the day goes along.


And, yes, we miss Keith Jackson.

Early kudos to GameDay's Chris Fowler for challenging the NCAA's ridiculous decision to penalize minor on-field celebrations.  Everyone knows what's acceptable and what's over the top, let officials distinguish as much and leave the rest to the athletes who make the game exciting and personal in the first place.

The outlandish celebrating in college football is embarrassing. It should be banished. The absurd tribal dancing that goes on needs to stop. Try good sportsmanship. When you do make it to the endzone, "Act like you've been there before," as the great Coach Paul Bryant was noted for saying. If rule changes and enforcement are what it takes to keep certain athletes in check, bring it on. Acting like a wild animal is never acceptable. You can never have too much class.
