Notre Dame Stadium looked 45% red.  Lots of folks sold their season tickert seats for big $$$$.

It's a dream road trip weekend for Atlanta area sports fans.  Many folks headed up to Chicago Thursday evening.  There were UGA chants taking place at Wrigley Field on Friday evening.  Saturday saw what may be the most historical college football stadium/campus in the country, and first visit for UGA in South Bend.  And tomorrow has the Falcons opening the season in Chicago against the Bears.  Many folks are hitting up that trifecta.

 

Safe to say Atlanta took over Chicago this weekend.  I'd have likely done this had I not wanted to be a part of Atlanta sports history tomorrow afternoon, with Atlanta United's first game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium

He should've been fired after last season. They've pretty much been worse every season since he's been there, and this particular team is downright AWFUL. Like, I don't understand how his recruiting classes are always such :censored:. I wouldn't be surprised if last week was the only game they'll win all year. 

 

Dennis Erickson was really flawed, but he knew how to attract at least SOME talent.

Could've had June Jones, who Lisa Love originally wanted. He would've quit NB before the 2015 season because he is June Jones.

Boise collapsed, and are going into OT at WSU.  Looks like both backup QBs are in.

The line was +6.5, so they will cover.

Late in their game last night, Louisiana Tech had a 3rd-and-goal play where the line of scrimmage was the 7-yard line.  Their own 7-yard line.

 

How?  On 2nd down, the snap goes over the QB's head, and the ball keeps getting kicked around and never gets possessed by either team.  Mississippi State players have numerous chances to scoop up the ball...or even just fall on it...but didn't do either.  Louisiana manages to lose nearly 90 yards on this play.

Of all the games... UCLA drops one to Memphis? I thought they were actually starting to get their :censored: together.

9AM kickoff on the body clock. Its even got Stanford before.

 

That said, The American has two Power 5 home wins already this week, yet neither USF nor Memphis sold out.

USF is more understandable due to Irma, but it was free admission to HS players and first responders. They announced 35.5K and reports are 5,500 were free seats.

 

And it ain't like the Liberty Bowl gets a Power 5 team in there outside of December. Sad.

Oh Florida

At this point, there is not much to make me believe they aren't actively trying to lose this game.

Florida is a complete disaster.  Undisciplined, unimaginative on offense, can't tackle. McElwain has to go.

 

Fortunately, Tennessee is kind of a mess themselves.

It seems like the offense has stunk ever since Jesus left.(Though I don't follow the Gators that much)

 

And Florida wins as I type this
