This was supposed to be the year that the SEC fell out of favor. It was supposed to be the anointment of the Pac-12. None of that appears to be happening. Stanford for the fourth time in four years beat USC. Now Standford had a number draft pick as QB, this year, they did not. For some reason, Stanford is in their heads. On top of the fact Lane Kiffen just cannot take a FG when its right there for them. USC's national championship hopes are pretty dim if not gone and Barkley's Heisman celebration is on hold.

Bama rolled over Arkansas like the Hogs were a squirrel and they were a hummer. Notre Dame is relevant again and the Big Ten is not. Virginia Tech lost to a Pitt team they could probably keep their offense on the field against Cincy last week. FSU rolled, but they haven't played anyone and considering VT is one of the good ACC teams, I doubt they will play anyone. If this is the division Notre Dame is sorta kinda not really joining then it was a better move than I thought. As for the rest, it is the continuing march of not a lot of ranked teams playing anyone til October.

I'm starting to think Cam Newton was the greatest college football player. Auburn was not good before him, and they aren't good after him.
The top of the SEC is still very dominant, but the depth of good teams isn't there.
USC showed some weaknesses against a Syracuse team that barely beat Stony Brook, wait, I mean, a Syracuse team that has become relevant again nationally, per some New York media outlets.
Virginia Tech really has gotten into the habit of throwing one of those WTF, they lost to them games out there.
Didn't the University of Colorado used to have a football team?
Screw it, I thought 7-5 season for Notre Dame, but I'm drinking the Kool-Aid. It is funny how things can be different when you don't go minus 3 on turnovers in most games.
Still waiting for that decisive schematic advantage to occur on a weekly basis at Kansas.

I'm just not totally sold on Notre Dame yet. Yes, good win against Michigan State, but let's not forget the Spartans have a habit of losing games they shouldn't every year(like VT). I think ND has a shot of beating Michigan and Stanford or getting blown out, either way. I'm not yet a believer they can hang with Oklahoma or USC.

Speaking of VT, they really do have some major problems. That QB is not what he's hyped up to be. They may get better as they do most years, but I don't know if they'll be good for 10 wins. Then again, the ACC sure looks even worse than normal with the exception of FSU and Clemson(maybe GT).

I'm amazed at how far Colorado has fallen. Just depressing.

I just don't see Pelini surviving this season, and I don't mean his health. They've got their best young players jumping ship, tired of his crappy attitude, and they aren't producing on the field really. He's just not the answer there, better they take care of it now.

I read some little blurb without much detail that the Orange Bowl made a deal with the SEC/Big someething/ND to go with their ACC deal, meaning the Big East just got screwed out of their one sure bet big bowl starting in 2014.
