    I doubt he'll win the Heisman again, and he'll certainly suffer for the questionable talent around him at some spots (offensive line and RB in particular), but for my money Lamar Jackson is still the best individual player in college football. Guy is fun to watch.

    Howard, led by Cam Newton's brother, beating UNLV despite being a 45-point underdog was one of the cooler stories of the weekend.

    Also, shameless plug for my defending FCS champion JMU Dukes, who beat FBS member ECU 34-14. And trust me, it wasn't even THAT close. My brother's an ECU grad so family bragging rights are mine. :-)

    Liberty beating Baylor was pretty funny. I mean, you could say it's karma, but that's Jerry Fallwell University beating them, so I don't think it's that. Just a really awful football team. KU is poised to be the second-worst program in the Big XII for a while.

    That is a good story but UNLV shouldn't be 45 point favorites vs anyone.

    Possibly, but UNLV was still a FBS team playing against a Howard team that went 3-19 the last two years in one of the weakest conferences in all of FCS. They've been one of the lowest rated teams in all of Div I for a while now.

    I know it was last year, but Howard lost to that awful Rutgers team by 39. I'm still not sure if that makes UNLV being a 45 point favorite defensible or not.

    Re: College Football 2017

    The college football thread is sad this year. I skimmed through last year's the other day, and by this time last year we were through 273 posts. We made it through 1000 posts by mid-December. Lots of ground to make up!

    OK, for tonight, I cannot fathom how USF is a 17 point favorite over Illinois. Yes, I know the Illini are really bad, and I know that USF is nominally a top 25 team...but Charlie Strong teams rarely blow anyone out. And Illinois WAS good enough to stomp Western Kentucky as a solid home dog last week. I think it will be close tonight.

    Now watch USF win 48-0.

    Re: College Football 2017

    I have been traveling the past 2 weekends (one was to go to the OSU game) so I haven't had my usual watching 10 hours of football like I would like

    I am very much looking forward to doing absolutely nothing this weekend except watching a tremendous amount of football.

    I agree with you on the game tonight, both of those teams aren't very good, but my guess is it will be a close game.

    On September 23rd, ESPN's College Game Day is going to be held in that rabid bastion of college football: Times Square in New York City.

    That Rutgers to the Big 10 move is finally paying off.

    Not even halftime yet and there have been 25 penalties called in the Illinois/USF game.
    Go Gators!
