Yes, my fellow CFB fans, a new season starts on Thursday, 8/30/12.

Are you watching the games?

Join your fellow CFB fans in posting your observations here. Rants, raves, and the usual expressions of college football fans caught up in the action are welcome. Relieve the tension with a little humor if you like, but, if you've another topic to discuss, there are plenty of other message boards to choose from.

Go team!

Almost all of the Saturday games are games against piddly opponents. A bunch of blow-outs that are not worth watching. (Michigan-Alabama is the clear exception here).

I'll be away fishing. The fun doesn't start until later.

GFS is largely correct. Got the pick'em up and my bet is everyone ends up with a very close record this week.

'Bout damn time ..

A tale of two programs

Among the opening games, those of one State's two premier schools stand out. Due to TCU's induction into the B12-2, Oklahoma was left scrambling to add an OOC game this past winter. They are scheduled to play at UTEP. Yep. An away game in scenic El Paso. On the other hand, OK State has scheduled its home opener against Savannah State, and underperforming FCS team, 1-11 in its past two seasons, 11-73 in its past seven. There's cake, and then there's.... twinkies. Not even Sarah Lee could sanction this bit of egregious scheduling. True frosh QB or no, the Cowboys shame themselves with this one.

Yep....should bring in a nice chunk of change....

And let's not talk about other teams playing Georgia State (FCS) or schools like Miami (Ohio) or UAB.

LOL

Me too W_A_M_U? but they don't get to play in a bowl game this year! Hahaha?

NO hahaha, none whatsoever!

The University of Akron opens up the season both chronologically and alphabetically against another team that's bowl banned this season. Central Florida is gonna hand the Zips their heads in Akron. OUCH?

I'd love to go to JerryWorld and tailgate with the traveling fans of both teams. (Jerry probably charges for that).

What happened to the Fantasy "College Pick'em" this year? Looks to me like nobody at SI wants to run the show this year. WTH? Pathetic
