    CFB: Week 1

    Powerhouses flexing their muscles. One tried, and failed. Marquee games with BCS implications. Nifty runs, amazing catches, bone-crushing hits.

    The new rule moving the kickoff back 5 yards added a nice twist. Revoking the possession change clock rule was a gift from the Gods.

    Really enjoyed Week 1. Maybe it's just me, but it somewhat had a bowl weekend feeling.

    Nice job outta you, CFB - nice to have ya back!

    Re: CFB: Week 1

    The Big 12 had a pretty good showing this weekend:

    -K-State played tough but lost late to Auburn
    -Mizzou beat Illinois (always good to beat the Big Ten)
    -Oklahoma destroyed North Texas
    -Colorado beat Colorado St. in overtime
    -A&M had a solid win
    -Kansas with a blowout!
    -Nebraska with a big win

    Not all of it was pretty, though:
    -Texas, after all their jawing about us blowing it against Kent State, barely eeks out a win over powerhouse Arkansas State
    -Oklahoma State stayed competitive with Georgia for about a half, then fell apart
    -Baylor was...Baylor
    -ISU

    But, at least we didn't have a Top 5 team lose at home to D-IAA. I'm glad it happened to the Big Ten. They deserve it.

    Re: CFB: Week 1

    I was really impressed with K-State and CU's Hawkins. Without and astonishing number of critical penalties KSU would have won. I only saw a half of CU-CSU but Hawkins looked really good for an RS Frosh.

    Oh, and I was at the first half of the KU game and they looked a lot better than I thought they would. No idea if CMU was just bad or if they are actually that good but they totally dominated today.

    Re: CFB: Week 1

    I really, really wish K-State would have beaten Auburn. They would have, had it not been for their mind-blowing penalty list. Getting frantic right at the end didn't help any, either.

    On a separate note, since when did "Football Bowl Subdivision" and "Football Championship Subdivision" replace "D-1" and "D-1AA"? Having fancy names is all well and good, but those things are really cumbersome to say and easy to confuse verbally. I'm not a fan, and will continue to refer to them by their sensible names.

    Normally I would gently chide someone over a misspelling that changes a word's meaning, lingui-nazi that I am, but in this case, it's amusingly appropriate. "Eke" is the verb you were looking for, but "eek" is what Texas had to have been saying!

    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    I believe the term you are looking for is "wow". It's not grammatically correct to add the "-za" at the end.



    Go Sssssssssyclones!
