    This is a bad week when USC vs Notre Dame looks enticing to at least tune into for a sec

    OSU at Mizzou, Wisconsin at Michigan State and UW at Stanford are the only games worth a dime.

    LSU has some big suspensions this week with Spencer Ware, Tyrann Mathieu and Tharold Simon. They better play in the Bama game because I don't want any excuses.

    Rick Neuheisel is so overmatched everywhere he goes that I can not believe he has a head coaching job still. He looks absolutely lost on the sidelines.

    Hopefully 2 blocked field goals isn't needed to take down the fake UT.

    I haven't watched Missouri this year, but they seem absolutely terrible.

    Tahj Boyd has missed a wide-open Sammy Watkins twice on two long bombs. Clemson is very lucky to be up 24-17 at halftime. Their secondary is terrible.

    UNC lucky it is only a 24-17. First 3 possessions Clemson got the ball inside Unc 40 and they didn't take advantage of it.

    Sammy Watkins is a MAN.

    Is Clemson going to run the table this year?

    Sammy Watkins is the best WR in college football. Should have had 3 TD receptions today and about 200 yards.

    The 3rd quarter beat-down today on UNC was a sight to behold.

    Only Ga Tech next week has a good chance to beat them. But one major thing in favor of Clemson is Tech doesn't throw the ball. The way to beat Clemson's defense is in the air. Up front they are decent. If Clemson comes out focused and doesn't fall into a big hole, they will beat Tech. They have a good chance to finish the season 12-0 and then win the ACC championship game.

    At the 13:00 minute mark in the 4th, they decided to run the clock out. They are honoring the tradition of Gus Johnson by keeping it close.
