Observations from this past CFB weekend
Mark Dantonio > Brian Kelly
For those of you that thought that Kelly was the man totally responsible for the last few years at Cincinnati you had better look at what Dantonio has done with Michigan State. Kelly is learning that it was much better to follow a guy at Cinci that was doing a great job and hence getting a better opportunity at Michigan St. than to follow a guy at ND that was not getting the job done. This is not to say that Kelly is not a good coach...he just got way too much credit at Cinci. Dantonio is really the guy that deserves the most praise for both Cinci and now Michigan State.
Cam Newton > All other CFB players
Wow...I knew this kid was good but he may be one of the most freakish athletes ever...in any sport. What a combination of size, strength, speed, quickness, agility, throwing ability, running ability...he is absolutely unbelievable. This also shows what an impact a college QB can have on a team (AU is quite average other than Newton) when there is a coach (Gus Malzahn) in place that knows how to use that QB in the right way.
I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
