I was going to give these a hiatus in 2013 after taking in the preseason chatter of the CFB regulars. Given that two In Game boards were put up during my absence, I'll put this one up and see how it's received.

Are you watching the games? Post with your pals, here. Rants, raves, and the usual expressions of fans caught up in the action are welcome, as are the occasional humorous observations and anecdotes. If you've another agenda in mind, please, post it to another board or thread.

Let's watch some football!!!

OK, I promise to behave myself this week. No over-the-top defenses of UFM. It wouldn't matter anyway. ;)

First real test for the Bucks coming up at Berkley. Hopefully the hippies won't seduce many tOSU players before the game.

Quirky Quad. GO BUCKS!

and no way ABC is picking that up. Perhaps Cable 10, if its not preempted by Wayne's World reruns.

Better believe it, This is Norte Dame football we are talking about.

The US air force could be dropping the bomb on shake Hasbla Holly Booby Looby Booty this Saturday and the ND game will not be interrupted.

Saddle soreness is gone. Biker calves remain. Verily, a grand ride.

Van, it's Purdue. They couldn't beat their way out of a wet paper bag, and one end is open.
Don't let the boys have a down week after last week. Get out there and give'em the ol' Irish spirit.

Purdue is a damn good team. Part of murderer's row.

As we await tonight's kick-off, I pause to reflect on the first two weeks (which I missed) and wonder, did anyone other than those physically present witness the Rutgers Fresno State game? Whoa freakin' Nelly! It may not have reached last years WVA-Baylor plateau, but the synopsis reads like defense optional, part deux. Week 1's honorary mention goes to E Wash's outscoring of the Beavs. We know nobody who wasn't present saw that one. Week 2 didn't have the wish-you-were-there quotient, but one sizable Double-You-Tee-Eff that's already been discussed - A BYU team which lost at Virginia runs at will over the visiting Longhorns, 40-21.

Week 3 games with intrigue factor include

BGU at Indiana - Bowling Green may be a force in the MAC, 2013. They can put up points and seemingly fear no one. Indiana can score, but they surrender points like the French Army. This could be the video-game offensive show of week 3.

P40s at WF - Wake's loss in Boston leaves us to ponder if Addazio has awakened The Eagles and will bring woe to the Colosseum, or if Wake is weaker than they look on paper in 2013. ULM getting blanked by Okie before taking the belt to Grambling's backside has us wondering if there's any giant slayer magic in the 2013 Warhawks. This match-up could be back-n-forth entertaining CFB (or a distant 2nd to BBC class-oriented period-piece series... In other words, "Honey, I'm going to chop wood").

Anyone else see another under the radar intrigue game in the week 3 slate?

September 12, 2013  10:20 AM ET

BTW, is anyone planning to even channel flip from & to the TTech-TCU game tonight?

September 12, 2013  04:25 PM ET

I might. Curious to see whether TCU can amount to anything without Casey at the Bat

A couple of Mountain West games have my interest: AFA @ Boise State- early conference game up for grabs; and Fresno State (2-0) @ Colorado (2-0)- see if a PAC 12 team gets punked by MWC.

Might also throw in the annual Battle of I-10, with winless UTEP @ winless NMSU. I think the Aggies have a good chance this weekend. They played tough against the Big XII and B1G.

September 12, 2013  05:34 PM ET

Another inter-conference game with the PAC-12 and B1G: Washington Huskies @ Illinois. Are the Illini contenders or pretenders?

See where your Vols are @ Oregon this Saturday, TM. Duck hunting season is now open; Vols can sneak up on them.

My point is,,,,,,,, Purdue is a old and true Notre Dame football rivalry. So tune in and watch one of the greatest hard fought games of the year.

Michigan was a yawner,, (disrespect intended) of a game, because it never will be a rivalry game.

Van dismisses you Michigan,, I make the sign of the cross on your forehead,, now go and sin no more my son.

I don't like the TtU's grey uniforms....almost 50 shades of grey.
