    So the NCAA season kicks off in 6 days! Figured we could put 1 dedicated thread in here rather than a new one for every tidbit.

    Vandy opens up the season at home on ESPN against South Carolina who many peg as being front runners for the SEC East title. I think Vandy could surprise them!

    PAC 12 & Mountain West Conference... Interested in that as well as Texas Tech. I used to like the Big Ten but I can get all the info I need on BTN. Besides, 2 of the 10 teams are on suspensions... Shame. So, any & all news/info on those 2 conferences & TT would be great.

    I believe that 3 of the B1G Ten schools in the "Leaders" division aren't allowed to play a bowl game this year.

    So just went through the cable box schedule and put 82 games on paper to watch this weekend. Loving it!

    Some highlights for me:

    Thursday - Vanderbilt vs South Carolina, McNeese State vs Middle Tennessee State, UMass vs UConn, Eastern Wash vs Idaho, Wazzu vs BYU

    Friday - Boise State vs Michigan State,

    Saturday - Notre Dame vs Navy, Miami vs Boston College, Auburn vs Clemson, Hawaii vs USC, Michigan vs Alabama, UTSA vs South Alabama*

    Sunday - Kentucky vs Louisville, SMU vs Baylor

    Monday - Georgia Tech vs Virginia Tech

    *The first game for UTSA in the NCAA. Coached by former UMiami national championship winning head coach Larry Coker.

    A harsh article by a SEC hater - http://www.thepostgame.com/commentary/2 ... on-sec-bcs

    He also goes on to basically insinuate that because ESPN is owned by Disney they are in the business of creating stories.

    I'll run some numbers but my first response to this is that generally the 6th, 7th and 8th SEC schools in the Bowl games are facing off against the 2nd or 3rd place schools in mid-major conferences.

    Also love how they forget to mention that Oklahoma was the pre-season #1 last year and stayed there for 8 weeks until they lost.

    They also forget to mention that the 3 most watched college football games last year were SEC games but on the CBS network not ESPN (the spinner of dreams).

    Anybody else not all that impressed with the Ohio State catch? People are ooozing over themselves calling it the catch of the year and some crap. Honestly I saw some catches in some B level games that were as nice or nicer but because 8 other people saw them nobody's creaming themselves to pat them on their back. And you wonder how these kids get big fat heads. Lame.

    Bama slide up to #1 and USC drops. Stop scheduling such cupcake opponents in the first game!
