Seriously? Nobody bombs Alabama. LOL

No, they were def. bombed in some of those games.  There's a reason why Saban and his defensive staff met with Tom Herman after the Ohio State game to ask him how he did what he did to him.

If Boston College is a big win for your program, it's time for a change.

With a 4-8 record last year. any win is big.

I'm completely underwhelmed by Kelly. 

Me too but a good win last night. Bama is #1 but are not unbeatable. That win over Florida state now means nothing following there loss to NC state. To me Oklahoma should be #1.

Oklahoma going into OSU and doing that is the most impressive win of the year. 
Clemson doesn't have a win as impressive, but a win at home against Auburn and then at Lville and at VT, collectively that is impressive.  Would probably put them 2 (if they can beat VT this weekend of course).

Bama would be 3. 

USC would probably be 4.  Or maybe Penn State.  Or even Georgia.  App. State, ND, and Miss. State is a pretty decent list of wins.

USC's loss was not that big of an upset. Everyone knew that Washington State was/is a good team. LSU's loss to Troy was as bad as it gets.

I have seen Luke Falk play in multiple games over the previous 2 seasons prior to this one (2015 and 2016), and he looked really good in the games which I saw.

I'm not surprised by the Cougars' win, or by Falk's solid play in the win.

 

Also, USC just barely got by Texas, whom were blitzed by Maryland on opening day.

Agree with all of that.  USC of overhyped to start the season.

(OCTOBER 7th)

 

With their 3rd-string quarterback playing ........ a walk-on, redshirt senior ........ Iowa State went into Norman-Oklahoma, and shocked the Sooners.

(OCTOBER 13th)

 

When Syracuse had a 14-7 lead in the 2nd quarter of their game against Clemson, they had a touchdown called back because of a borderline offensive pass interference call.

Still, 2 plays later on 3rd down and long they still had a chance for a long field-goal attempt when their running back fumbled the ball ......... he not only fumbled, by a Clemson defender scooped the ball up and ran it all the way back the other way for a touchdown.

So instead of Syracuse being up by a score of 21-7 (or at least 17-7), the score was instead tied at 14 ........ and I immediately thought that they probably just blew the game, because a heavy underdog with a record of 3-3 going against the undefeated (6-0) #2 team in the country can ill-afford to give away 10-point swings like that.

 

I was wrong. Syracuse kept their composure, continued to outplay Clemson (particularly on their offensive vs. Clemson's defensive side of the ball), and completed a stunning 27-24 upset in front of their home crowd at the Carrier Dome.

Yeah, that was quite a game.   Clemson has a fantastic defense, I'm not sure how Syracuse managed to put up 27 on them.

On the other side of the ball, QB Kelly Bryant came in lame and couldn't run the ball, which was a big part of his game.   Then he got knocked out with a concussion.   So I didn't expect Clemson to score a lot.   I had a little bit of $$ on Syracuse +24.   Tigers have been playing with fire the past couple weeks (tied 7-7 going into the 4th quarter vs BC, and only beating Wake 28-14, both at home).  Their offense is way down from last year.  

But you gotta give Syracuse serious props for what they did against the Clemson defense, which is as good as any in the country.   First big win for Babers there, I think he's going to turn out to be a good hire, maybe their best since McPherson.
