Wow, college football is back! And it was a hell of a kickoff week! Let’s start off with what we learned from week one:
- The Frogs took care of business as usual but we really won’t learn the caliber of the team until week 3. A rivalry road game against SMU will be a bigger test for week 2. However, SMU should be another big win for the frogs.
- OU and WVU rolled. They both looked really good, end of story. We will certainly have our hands full in Morgantown this year but having OU at home will be a blessing.
- Kansas sucks again. The Beaty experiment has officially reached Failed State status. I am predicting a mid-season firing without a doubt.
- Kansas State snuck by. The Wildcats always get better as the season goes on, but starting the season with a rough and tumble match with South Dakota doesn’t bode well for a Big 12 championship run.
- Texas Tech did not impress. This may be the end of the road for ol’ Kliff “Ryan Gosling” Kingsbury. The Red Raiders were thoroughly dominated by Ole Miss, what will likely be a middling SEC team. We will see if he can bounce back and scrape out 6 wins this year but all early indicators point to an end of the Kingsbury era in Lubbock.
- Texas is most certainly not back… By no means did Texas get blown out of the water this week; however, being on par with a Maryland team that didn’t have a head coach week 1 is not the hype Texas fans so desperately wanted to believe. For all intensive purposes, Texas looks like a 6-6 team at the moment. They didn’t seem to have fixed any of the problems from last season and Ehlinger certainly does not seem to have any semblance of the clutch gene. They face USC and TCU in two of their next three games, which will have people calling for Herman’s head if the horns start 1-3. But then again, ESPN says we only have a 27% chance of winning that game LOLOLOL.
Gotta love the start of football season! The frogs looked good, but beating Southern doesn’t really mean anything. Now it’s time to keep the Iron Skillet in Fort Worth. SMU always gets up for us so it certainly won’t be a rollover game. Not to mention that Sonny Dykes was on the Frog’s staff last season which gives them an advantage that they have not had in years past.
