See, the thing is, the Aggies are not done losing. Not nearly. It will be interesting to see how A&M responds now that we can all knock it off with gibberish about a national championship or a CFP berth. Liberty Bowl bound?
The deed to the actual Liberty Bowl Stadium should be signed over to the UTSA Roadrunners. They own it, after overcoming an early 21-0 deficit to upset the speedy and previously unbeaten Memphis Tigers. Seventeen unanswered in the fourth quarter, on the road. ‘Runners now 4-0 and nationally ranked. I can’t say enough good things about the UTSA program. That, and not the often-cited previous wins over the likes of Houston, Baylor and Illinois, was the biggest win in school history. Beating Memphis on the road is significant. Memphis is a good role model for who you want to be in the Group of Five. Manly.
I’m gonna say it. Why wasn’t Texas State UTSA before UTSA was UTSA? I’m serious. Why shouldn’t that program be an absolute monster? I’ll answer my own rhetorical question. Small-time thinking by small-time thinkers.
I don’t have any love for Notre Dame, but I sure as hell respect that team. Dang! They trailed Wisconsin in the fourth quarter, and wound up winning by 28! Brian Kelly now the all-time winningest coach at ND, ahead of Knute? He’s earned it, and I give him all the credit in the world for changing his coaching style over the last five years or so. Irish with a showdown next week against unbeaten Cincinnati. Early indication is that ND quarterback Jack Coan will be good to go after having to leave yesterday with an ankle injury.
Wisconsin has a problem. That’s a good roster, but the Badgers have now twice wilted late against Penn State and Notre Dame. W was 1-14 on third down Saturday, including an 0-10 start. Yikes.
Speaking of teams I don’t like but must respect, nice work, SMU. You know…screw you…but, uh, nice work.
Texas can’t drive 55. 58 last week against Rice and 70 vs. the Red Raiders. TCU will be pissed off next week. That no longer matters. ‘Horns will roll.
Au Jus has to be the shakiest 4-0 team in the country. Bottom line? Au Jus is still 4-0.
Baylah still nasty. But Baylah 4-0, too. And that win over Iowa State (despite those heinous Bear uniforms) is a big deal.
North Carolina gets popped…pounded, really…by Georgia Tech? Ruh-roh.
A little dab done done Dabo. He’ll figure it out, but it won’t happen this season.
The Georgia State coach says an SEC officiating crew bailed out the Auburn Tigers. The Georgia State coach is correct. Shameful.
Really, USC? At home?
It’s a pleasure to watch Army play football. Love me some Black Knights.
No Cowboys or Texans today. So, I got my eyes on:
Bucs at Rams
Colts at Titans
Chargers at Chiefs
Seahawks at Vikings
Packers at Niners
I will not have my eyes on the Ryder Cup. A sucker event.
