Picked to finish last in their division and they went into Knoxville and punched UT in the face.

But, yanno.... Soon.
Georgia State is straight up emberassing them on their own field.

The possession following my post:

1st down - TENN LT gets bowled over and gives up a sack

2nd down - TENN QB throws an INT

:lol

Mack Brown gets his first win at UNC over S. Carolina.
It was a very nice win; the bigger takeaway is that national media predicting 3 wins for UNC again was insanity. It demonstrated absolutely zero insight into what UNC was last year or what kind of recruiting they had since they last took the field. Or the coaching improvements - not only is Mack back but they have excellent coordinators, especially their DC.

They may not be a bowl team but while they only won 2 games last year, they were down to the wire in like four others and had terrible QB play.

Now they have a stud QB prospect (Sam Howell) and another four star redshirt freshman backing him up. They are gonna win 5, 6 games. They have Mercer and Georgia Tech on the schedule for chrissakes. They can probably beat Duke and Appalachian State too. And if their QB Howell gets better, it’s not like Pitt, NC State, VA Tech or Virginia are powerhouses.

But everywhere you looked.... UNC was predicted last in the ACC with like 3 wins.... nope.

I know everybody was worried but Tech did get its first win of the season. Rest easy now.

The Oregon/Auburn dame was a good spectator game. Poor coaching from Oregon in second half.

Rest easy, boys. People were worried that NDSU would struggle this year with Easton Stick being gone and having to go with a redshirt freshman QB. But the new hired gun, Trey Lance looks to be the next stud Bison QB in line. In the first half, he hit on 9-of-10 for 172 yards and 4 touchdowns. He only attempted 1 pass in the 2nd half, for 13 yards. Also rushed for 116 yards and 2 TDs, in a 57-10 win. And he didn't play the 4th quarter.

6' 4" 220 lbs, with speed and a big arm. He should be ready to roll into Dallas right about the time they finally figure out giving Dak all that money wasn't the right thing to do.

Wait...I swear I have heard people say D'Eriq King was the next Kyler Murray. Kid can't even complete a pass.

This is a beautifully designed and executed play.

By everyone but the pulling guard. Too bad he went full retard after missing his initial block. If he'd have just got in the way of the safety instead of just spinning around, it would have been a walk in TD.

The fact that Oklahoma replaced practically all of their linemen that went to the NFL, it was good enough.

I thought Texas A&M would give Clemson a little bit of a fight. I was wrong.

Nebraska's out here folding like a cheap suit in the 2nd half.

Somewhere Deuce is smiling.

That ball was not caught by Collin Johnson. At all. Stingley took it away. Horrible this actually had to be looked at. Even with the naked eye, it was not a catch.

This is all unfolding nicely so far.

Burrow looks sharp. I know it is a little odd, but he just reminds me of Steve Walsh, but in a good way.

Feels weird watching a functional QB under center for LSU. They haven't had a stud at QB since JaMarcus Russell.....and that was over a decade ago.

Texas secondary is really weak. The defenders are not even close to getting any coverage. Might be good news for OU and the rest of the conference. Their running game is barely average.

Also the Texas QB winds up like a guide on to throw the ball.

They've had a ton of injuries at the RB position. I think they only have 1 actual RB active for this game. I heard the plan was to spell him with converted WRs and DBs.

The Oklahoma defense actually looks like they may have a little fight in them for a change. Hard to tell given the caliber of opponent they've faced these forst two weeks (Houston & S. Dakota), but so far so good.

They even forced 3 turnovers tonight. That's huge considering they only had 11 all of last season.

The biggest difference that I've noticed is the secondary is actually playing man to man, press coverage for a change. The days of watching Oklahoma CBs give opposing WRs 10 yards of cushion while playing in a soft zone coverage appear to be over. Guys look like they actually understand their assignment and don't look near as confused as they've typically looked.

Pretty much. It is however to soon know anything for sure with the competition they have played but as you say at least the alignments and coverage schemes have changed.

That was tonight's game against the "team" you played?

I'm just looking for any sign of life and fight from the defense.

I know I'll have to wait until conference play begins in order to get some real answers. Initially I though this week's game against UCLA would be a decent test but the Bruins have looked horrible this year. I don't think they could beat Kansas.
