-I know they were only playing San Jose State but Alabama looked like the returning National Champs despite missing two key starters (Mark Ingram and Marcel Dareus). They didn't skip a beat and dominated from start to finish. I'm already starting to regret my Florida pick.

-DeMarco Murray ran for 215 yards and 2 TD's in a close win against Utah State. It should be interesting to see how he does against Florida State this week. If he goes off as I expect he's will vault into a top 5 Heisman candidate.

-Michigan's Denard Robinson was simply amazing against UCONN in the Big House. Robinson rushed for 197 yards on 29 carries and also crushed it in the air by completing 19 of 22 attempts for 186 yards. Notre Dame is going to have a hell of a time trying to contain him this week.

-I know they were only playing the lowly Ragin Cajuns but the Georgia defense looked remarkably better. They completely manhandled them with the new 3-4 implemented by new defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. It was also cool to see Grantham go ballistic on safety Bacorri Rambo for fucking up an assignment and allowing a long touchdown pass that prevented a shutout. You didn't see that with Willie Martinez.

-Speaking of defense I also thought Notre Dame looked way better fundamentally. They actually tackled and wrapped up. Cornerbacks Gary Gray and Darrin Walls were straight balling by coming up to the line of scrimmage and making one on one stops. Defensive tackle Ian Williams had his best collegiate game of his career by disrupting Robert Marve's debut in Turdue colors. He had a huge interception, deflected a pass, and also had a sack. If he can keep it up the Notre Dame defense could surprise. They are going to have to play their A game this week to contain Denard Robinson.

-Texas looks like they are going to have problems running the ball all season with a suspect offensive line. They won 34-17 over Rice but could not control the line of scrimmage. Plus the runningbacks are nothing to shout about.

-Bob Davie. Sorry I still can't stand the fucking guy. Listening to him in the booth of the USC-Hawaii game was bringing back painful memories. You would think someone who grew up around football would know more about the game and the rules. His time management skills still blow too.

-John Brantley made me look like a dipshit on Saturday. I came out last week and proclaimed the Gators offense wouldn't miss Tim Tebow because Brantley would put more points on the board for the Gators. Holy shit I was dead wrong. They had like 19 total yards in the first half against Miami of Ohio. Pathetic.

-Ole Miss. Anytime you lose to a non FBS team it's ugly. Very ugly.

-USC secondary. It's fucking terrible. It's like watching a bunch of blind folded midgets trying to hit a pinata.

-Josh Nesbitt's arm. 1 of 6 for 8 yards and 1 INT. You might as well just give him the Heisman.
