    Other People's College Football -- 2020 Edition

    Ready or not, September means scheduled college football. Who know what, if anything, we shall see.

    Things theoretically kick off in two days (this Thursday) with Central Arkansas @ UAB (8pm) and South Alabama @ Southern Miss (9pm).

    ACC kicks off next Thursday, September 10 with UAB @ Miami scheduled.

    Saturday, September 12 sees more ACC teams scheduled for action:

    Clemson @ Wake
    Western KY @ Louisville
    Duke @ ND

    also scheduled that day: UTEP @ Texas; HBU @ Texas Tech; LA-Lafayette @ Iowa St.; Missouri St. @ Oklahoma; E. Ky @ WVa.

    What an odd year...

    The Pac12 and B1G are delaying football until the spring... My money is on the other 3 conferences starting the season, then pulling up in the backstretch (to use a horse racing analogy) when poor decisions regarding spectators in the stands at some schools result in superspreader events... As for our opener—ND is a top tier opponent. I say we cover, but ND wins by 10+...

    The plan works great for BIG and PAC 12. Allows them to a avoid the great southern schools and play for the “National Championship -Spring Version” in the Rose Bowl. A permanent solution for bragging rights?

    Surprising development -- QB Jamie Newman, a recent transfer from Wake to UGa, and thought to be their starting QB and possible Heisman contender, has opted out of the 2020 season.

    South Alabama v. southern Miss on CBSSN right now — spread crowd — good to see football from a fan perspective. Mixed feelings And concern about the health issues obviously.

    2020 is hard.

    Feel the same way, but applaud them for trying to play. Same with colleges trying to reopen.

    BYU is so much bigger than Navy. Now 21-0.

    SMU's coach has excellent job security. But yes, USM is now in search mode.

    Yeah, him too!
    I wonder if all of the SMU coach's dyslexic friends were calling him to offer their condolences.

    Prolly, but it wasn't really much of a game. Looked like scrimmage between a college team and a junior high school team.

    Sorry, Bob.

    I think this is just how the season is going to go. Week-to-week decisions, and shifting on the fly.

    I'm not sure what will happen here. I could see the ACC moving some games around to fit the Commonwealth Cup before the championship game.

    Duke @ UVA moved to 9/26. Like BC, UVA may have its first game against Duke.

    BYU was supposed to play @Army next weekend. That game has now been postponed after a “small outbreak” of COVID among the BYU team.
