Marlon Mack, who has had my juices flowing since I first heard he was considering USF and I looked at his high school tape, just sent a loud and clear message that he will be a guy you want to watch for 2017.
That's a long way away obviously. But the true freshman ran 24 times for 275 yards and 4 TDs last night. It was against Western Carolina, but it was a hella impressive performance.
The reason he got me all jazzed coming out of high school was because I rarely see a back with his kind of vision out of the backfield, seeing both the line of scrimmage and the linebackers before he even has the ball, while at the same time possessing such physical gifts. Speed, explosiveness, tackle breaking, he's got the full package.

Jesus. I mean I know it's Eastern Michigan but I don't even remember the last time we scored that many points. I was going to be bummed our offense didn't get the extra reps against Idaho but that team is bad enough that it would have been a similar result. Ok on to a Kentucky team that might not be a total pushover for a change.
Your attention please, in case you had forgotten, Jeff Driskel still sucks.
It was pretty disappointing the way Kentucky lost vs Florida.
It's second overtime, you have 4th and about 3 yards to go, you're down 30-27, you're struggling to move the ball and you can't stop their power running game.
Go for it. I was yelling at the screen. Go for it! What have you got to lose? 3OT, Kentucky can't move the ball and can't stop Florida's rushing attack. Game over. Coaches of underdog teams who coach conservatively deserve to lose.
"Society became divided into camps in which no man trusted his fellow. To put an end to this, there was neither promise to be depended upon, nor oath that could command respect; but all parties dwelling rather in their calculation upon the hopelessness of a permanent state of things, were more intent upon self-defence than capable of confidence." - Thucydides, probably predicting the rise of internet message boards
Regardless, glad the streak is still alive. 28 in a row.
Will Muschamp is a ****ty coach, Jeff Driskel is a ****ty QB and Bama is going to go in dry next weekend.

Miss. State 4th and 3 at about the 10 yard line, kicks the field goal. You're a bigtime underdog, nothing to lose. Playing it safe?
EDIT: Good Lord. Miss. State is kicking the **** out of LSU. Kicking field goals, indeed.

That was s cheap, ugly, BS win but I don't give a ****! FSU still undefeated and the crab burglar is back next week. Hell yeah, go Noles!
Today was a reminder why I don't really watch or pay attention to college football that much. I pathetically sit around rooting for teams to lose only to see them all win and then watch the Canes get run over like an ant in an elephant stampede. **** me. What a waste of a day.
I root for upsets and there were at least a couple of good ones today.
