I'm starting to think that anyone with authority over anyone of a different race cant do anything good or bad without being called a racist. It's getting rediculous with the society with everyone acting like a victim in every situation

Congratulations! You've selected Disgruntled White Guy as your life persona. I wish you the best success with your chosen path. I look forward to future musings about what other people's clothing, other people's music, and just why can't you say racial slurs too.

Your official uniform of khakis, solid color polo shirt, and sensible sneakers are in the mail.

Well, it was a good season while it lasted.

Seriously, I've already checked out with this Wake team. I was not impressed by the output today, and if they didn't win today, there was no bowl chance. Maybe I'll tag along with Clemson since I've got family down there, now.

Looks like South Carolina won't be making the "leap" this year, giving up 511 yards at home to a brand new QB isn't going to win you the SEC.

South Carolina is overrated. USC is going to be the next upset victim when Fresno State gets through with them.

You apparently did not see last year's Las Vegas Bowl.

Fresyes has a new QB, got whipped by 20 last year and USCw has been working no-huddle most of the spring and training camp.

What happened to Mike Periera in the last hour of the Wazzu/Rutgers game? I think he was drunk and passed out.

Temple last season went 2-10 overall, with their two wins coming against Army and Memphis. While Vandy went 9-4, with their four losses against Ole Miss, South Carolina, Mizzou, and Texas A&M. Obviously these records were last season and this season is different.

Case in point:

Due to a weather delay Temple and Vandy still playing in Nashville. Temple leads 34-7 at the start of the fourth quarter. Temple just missed a short yardage FG.

******************

After the Aggies offensive outburst in Columbia, and Temple's thrashing of the Commodores, I'm not so sure about the Gators against Idaho. Sure, the Vandals were 1-11 last season, but this is just a weird start to the season.

The Vandals lone win last season? They beat Temple 26-24

I don't think Florida will have a tough time with Idaho. Look you already said, you're discussing last year to this year. A lot has changed. Vandy put in a quarterback that was third string at LSU and has a new coach.

If you read carefully I did not single out one particular race, I was talking about society as a whole. You have people from every race and background viewing themselves as victims for tjings they shouldn't. Even things that are positive for them they think the person has a second agenda for it. More and more I am hearing "he only did it because I'm (insert race here)" and I'm tired of this excuse that our society is living off of.

True, I'd still be quite surprised if Idaho goes into Gainesville and beats the Gators. It's just the weird start to the season isn't making me all that comfortable.

Still shocked about the whipping Temple put on Vanderbilt. Call me crazy, but I think that A&M could be undefeated at the Alabama game if Kenny Hill plays as well as he did against South Carolina. There are some major weapons on that offense and if the defense can be good enough to prevent TD's, they can win a lot of games.

Manziel moving on to the NFL was probably the best thing the Aggies could've had happen. Texas A&M looked much more like a cohesive team and only really started giving up points once South Carolina was in desperation mode.

Kenny hill looked much more like a Russell Wilson style player while Manziel looks more like a Michael Vick. Guess who's already won a championship. The Aggie offense looked scary efficient (almost 75% completion percentage from Hill) and the defense only surrendered 68 yards rushing, 70% lower than last years average.

You could chalk it up to overrating for USCe, and I'd agree with you. Don't think, though, that this is a huge upset. It's a conference game for a traditionally underperforming Steve Spurrier team. I was surprised at how thorough the win was, but I'm not surprised the Aggies won.

Not a real great game for Arizona State last night, but I'll take the win. They won 45-14, but they played Weber State. The defense looked stout, including a big four down goal line stand in the first half, though. That's nice to see considering how much they lost to the NFL and to graduation. Taylor Kelly looked downright AWFUL at times. He made some seriously bad overthrows and the whole offense looked pretty rusty and discombobulated most of the first half. They've gotta fix that if they want any shot at competing this season. There were a few bright spots, though. DJ Foster had a big night, and Jalen Strong, hoo baby is that guy a special talent. He's gonna be a top 5 pick in the draft next year IMO.

Overall, they absolutely need to clean things up and Kelly really needs to fix his accuracy, but I'm excited for this season. UCLA and USC are both overrated IMO, and our schedule is pretty favorable in the second half of the year. I could see another PAC 12 title game appearance if things fall into place.

FORK EM, DEVS.

Well, from what I saw, here's my take.

-Kenny Football, anyone? Not really, but man... 511 yards passing on South Carolina? Quite a debut and if I'm on the Lamar secondary, I'm bringing some brown pants with me to College Station next week.

-I wonder if Murphy's Law went to Vanderbilt last night and said 'Alright, you had your moment as a good team, now back to the basement where you belong!' after last night's fiasco. If your best moment was avoiding the potential penalty for having 'Anchors Down' on the back of the jersey, safe to say that it was a bad day.

-OK, we can scratch off Boise State in the race to win the 'Group of Five' Royal Rumble O' Doom .

-So long and good riddance, Waz-Spew! Stay out of Seattle forever!!

Count out Bowling Green from being a dark-horse candidate for a playoff game; we just gave up 700+ yards to Western Kentucky. WESTERN FREAKING KENTUCKY.

Florida International has one full time beat writer to cover all FIU sports, David J. Neal, who is with The Miami Herald.

The school has refused to credential Neal for tomorrow's game, just a credential for a photographer and for another Herald columnist.

The Herald will not cover the game.

At least Ron Turner may be saved from criticism.
