09:15 AM ET 09.23 | A few highlights from MSG Network's ongoing reality series on Wayne Hills (N.J.) High and ballyhooed Miami oral commitment Kevin Olsen, the nation's No. 6 quarterback prospect for 2013 and a candidate to succeed Stephen Morris in 2014: Viewers see Olsen, after his visit to UM in the spring, telling his brother Christian that UM has "six big [butt] linemen, fast receivers" but they're "pretty bad" at quarterback. Olsen -- who is coached by his father, Wayne Hills head coach Chris Olsen, and is out indefinitely with a fractured bone in his right foot - tells his family, before committing here, that he loves the UM staff, weather, offense and school -- "everything [except] playing in front of anybody [smaller crowds]."

I have to admit that FSU looked pretty good yesterday and Colorado, Kansas State and Auburn surprise me.

LSU is still all defense no offense. Wouldn't be surprised if they dropped a spot or 2. KState was KState to me. OU just isn't that good this year. They still look like the team that was .500 the last 6 games last year.

They had spots of being very good...then make a stupid mistake and turn the ball over.

OU's D, esp passing, was horrendous. Bet Geno Smith is licking his chops waiting for that game...

LSU has a good run game but their passing is seriously lacking. All AU has is a good run defense but they cannot cover down field at all. I was expecting LSU to be able to take advantage of that but Mettsiah was not looking so good.

Yeah, LSU really didn't impress me all that much yesterday, but they did win. I expect Oregon to jump over them. Don't really know all that much about the Sooners this year.

Can somebody explain to me how the hell michigan was able to win any football games this year??? The t/o's aside, their D misses ALOT of tackles, and both of their interior lines seem to be horrid. Oh and for the domers, don't chime in with "they looked bad because we were so good crap either". You guys had 6 extra chances to score and barely got into double digits.

I should have said "Congrats to Notre Dame for the win", even if we are not Irish fans!!!!

That's on the offense. Our defense is top 5 in the nation, fear our front 7

Piratey, I remember getting getting heartburn from you and other Domers when I suggested that Rees had skills. What do you have to say about Rees now?

This kid will fit right in with Seantrell Henderson.

He's terrible with no upside. He was QB for a majority of the game. He had one worthwhile pass, the one to Eifert late to seal it.

OK, Notre Dame is now the B1G Champion but that's not saying much. Your front 7 gave up nearly 300 yards to UM who gave it back 6 times thru turnovers and outgained you guys in total yards. Robinson put on the worst display of passing I've seen for a long time. Hoke keeps trying to make DR a pocket passer, I don't get it.
