2021 College Football Season

TheAliasTrollTheAliasTroll Posts: 3,757PFN Referee

Nebraska and Illinois officially kick off the 2021 season in 3 days. TurdHeels ranked #10 again in the entire nation to start the season (again)... wasn't that their ranking last year and they eventually fell out? It would be sweet to see a rerun of that episode.

    I realize that the holes return many of their starters and the talent keeps rolling into OC cubed, but if memory serves me correctly, they are also losing 2 prolific RBs and their 2 best WRs.

    424 of 2,830 rushing yards returning (145 of that is Sam Howell)

    1,262 of 3,617 receiving yards returning

    I realize the knob slobbering of Sam Howell, but putting the Holes at #10 is applying more emotion than logic.

    I'd say its emotion. Sounds like the voters who put unx have the same logic as Steve Spurrier who gave a vote to Duke every year because they gave him his start.

    Putting the holes at #10 puts them on the highway to playoff land from the start, that's the real juice from the squeeze. Friday night, September 3 just as I sober up from my trip to Raleigh I'll begin again and be the most obnoxious VT Hokie fan on the planet. I may go out to watch just to rile some walmart unx fan up. Only live once right??

    wonder if there is an over-under for college football games cancelled.

    not rescheduled. not no-contest. cancelled. across all divisions. any reason.

    just wondering.

    I can see a unx game being canceled to keep them from having a lose against a very good team. (Maybe that's a conspiracy theory on my part.)

    There is a way to avoid quarantines. There was a way that would've kept enough baseball players on the field for us to likely have won a national championship.

    I said that very loosely, I respect the non political theme. Just sayin before any scathing.

    It is very difficult to find ANY general college football article on The Athletic without a tongue up Ol' Mack's butthole. He sure knows how to work the media.

    I am looking forward to seeing the flop sweat drip off Chip Kelly's ample bosom.

    Nebraska sent one of their players to Tanner Ingle Football Camp. Turned an interception for Nebraska into a 30 yard penalty and a TD for Illinois.

    Former Pack player Calvin Hart, Jr. with a scoop and score for the Illini...

  • jppackattackjppackattack Posts: 1,247

    Just watched the highlight of the Illinois scoop and score - I thought the name Calvin Hart sounded familiar!

  • KingHippo_fka_BJD95KingHippo_fka_BJD95 Posts: 5,238PFN Referee

    Who has two thumbs (for now, anyway) and ML bet the f/k/a Illini?? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Nice! I had a small spot on them at +7. Couldn't help myself even though week #1 CFB always seems like a crap shoot.

    edit: BJD, are you still planning on putting a game thread up this week?

  • KingHippo_fka_BJD95KingHippo_fka_BJD95 Posts: 5,238PFN Referee

    That's why you bet the dogs early! Too much weight given to name value/past performance with departed players.

    Yes indeed, but thanks for the reminder. I will try to do it tonight, had a vet emergency last night so a little fried (grandson cat is fine, though).

  • TheAliasTrollTheAliasTroll Posts: 3,757PFN Referee

    Cat = Fine is all that matters! Sorry for the rough night and appreciate the write up... no hurries :)

  • KingHippo_fka_BJD95KingHippo_fka_BJD95 Posts: 5,238PFN Referee

    Thanks, and I ended up getting inspired to do it immediately. Kept me away from NFL pre-season torment!

  • TheAliasTrollTheAliasTroll Posts: 3,757PFN Referee

    Awesome! You are appreciated, sir! I've pinned it but don't have time to read it as I'm headed out the door so have to check it out later.. Thanks again!

  • TheAliasTrollTheAliasTroll Posts: 3,757PFN Referee

    How can the #10 team in the nation be losing to an unranked team? This is preposterous.

  • TexpackTexpack Posts: 3,992

    Come in from mowing the grass and the Dooley Bowl is on. How many first place votes does VT get next week if they can hold on?

  • TheAliasTrollTheAliasTroll Posts: 3,757PFN Referee

    I don't know but I guess this means VPI is at least one of the top 9 teams in the nation! Absurdity! I'll tell ya what though if UNC doesn't get it together they may drop to #11 or #12!!!

  • TheAliasTrollTheAliasTroll Posts: 3,757PFN Referee

    Heisman favourite (so I've been told by Carolina fans) only got 7 points on the board against an unranked opponent. Very bizarre.

    How bout them cheaters!
