    Everyone wants to play right away, it just doesn't work that way when your QB room is full of 4 & 5 star players.

    Utah dominating the Ducks again tonight. 23-0 at the half.
    Ducks offense just completely shut down by the Utes defense.

    Oregon reportedly working on a defensive extension for Mario Cristobal who is connected to the not open yet Miami job. Given the Duck performance vs Utah maybe the should table it for now.

    Hard to believe that this Oregon team went to Columbus and beat the Buckeyes.

    Every team evolves through the year. Some get better, some don't. Not sure about Oregon but we know the Buckeyes got better. Utah looks to have gone up as well as the season progressed.

    I questioned whether Utah could beat Oregon twice and so close together on the schedule. My mistake!:)

    Coach Day was relying on too many former reserves in that game. We are a completely different team as seasons end. I hope we get a rematch in the Rose Bowl game.

    I believe that the only way that Alabama has a chance to win this game is if the offensive line plays way better than it has played all season. If we can't run the ball and our qb can't get time to throw, we have no chance. If we can do those 2 things then we have a chance. Our only hope is to get into a shootout with Georgia. Georgia's defense is much better than any we have seen this season and their offense is reliable.

    Regarding Ewers and the Transfer Portal...not a huge surprise at all...he was gonna be sandwiched between Stroud and Bently. You gotta figure there won't be much of a battle next year for who's gonna play.

    How's that gonna happen? Isn't Utah pretty much locked in after last night?

    Re: Quinn Ewers. The article I read said, 1) he got in the Michigan State game for 2 plays; 2) he definitely is looking at Texas schools (Texas, A&M, TT). He wants to get closer to home. It didn't say he was looking only at TX schools.

    I can't officially speak for Jimbo, but I don't see why the Aggies would want Ewers.
    He's already run out on 2 teams (I count his highschool), and we'll have a talented QB room next season.
    Not saying you can ever have too many, but I don't want the kid who drives up in a McLaren screwing up my locker room with rumors about where he's going next.

    Baylor in the process of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    The kid has made a lot of money that's for sure, if he had stayed and played his Sr year he would have been a true freshman next season sitting behind a 3rd year QB going to the NFL. He's likely to still have a lot of NIL money.

    Oh well.

    As I type this Baylor had a great goal line stand and beat OSU. Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat! :D

    So all Domers are now the biggest fans of the Georgia Bulldogs. Incredible win by Baylor. 7 Plays for OSU at the Baylor 1 and only 3 points.

    SEC game is good, big play by Alabama keeps it close
    UGA really has some big receivers and TE's.
