    Huge weekend in college football this time.
    Starts tonight in the PAC12 with (18) UCLA visiting (15) Stanford

    Other big games include
    (17) Iowa at (20) Northwestern Will it be a great match-up or another B1G snoozefest?
    A B1G game that shouldn't be a snoozefest is (7) Michigan State at (12) Michigan. Is Michigan back or will Sparty knock them down again?

    In SEC country we get (10) Alabama at (9) aTm. Is Bama slipping some? Can ESecPN somehow use this game to justify moving both schools up in the rankings? Should be a great game but somehow I don't think it wll be.

    Bigger game in SEC country has Sparkles (8) Florida visiting (6) LSU. Never easy to win at LSU so we may see how Sparkles coaches under pressure.

    Unfortunate game of the week. I was looking forward to USC knocking some of the overrated stuffings out of ND but with all the things surrounding the coaching change this sets up as an easier game for the Irish.

    For entertainment value will Nebraska lose another one visiting 4-2 Minnesota? How about Oklahoma coming off a loss to Texas playing Old Man Snyders K-State team. Will Stoops chair get hot if he loses this week, fans weren't happy last week.

    Locally 3-2 AFA visits a reeling 2-4 CSU team. Sheep fans (all 30 of them) not highly confident about this game. Starting to realize that maybe they were coached above their talent level last year.

    Sparkles is a much better coach than I thought he was. Early returns are not so good on SEC assistant coach #2.

    Interesting game could be Missouri at Georgia.

    Both started the season with high expectations and have recently fallen on hard times, Mizzou losing 2 out of the last 3, Georgia losing the last 2 and falling from playoff contention to out of the top 25. Richt might be coaching for his job.

    Gut feeling that Stanford runs over the Bruins tonight.

    Auburn looking to get back on track up 14-7 on Kentucky.

    North Texas better hope for that coaching change bump or they might get mudholed by W. Kentucky tonight

    Harbaugh/Dantonio could be a great rivalry shaping up. Dantonio strives off the little brother reputation, but since it's not our little brother, I love it. And Harbaugh lives that annoying 6'3" short man complex but it's not as annoying to me now that he's in college. Looking forward to this one.

    I won't be surprised if Kentucky ends up beating Auburn. They're actually pretty good this year (could challenge in the East).

    I wonder if North Texas fans are trying to talk themselves into a moral victory for playing better this week after firing their coach. Only down to W Kentucky at home by 48-14. Sadly, we've been there.

    Not that I totally disagree, but the problem I have with this statement is this:

    The McCaffrey kids (and others like them) might have spent the majority of their formative years in Colorado, and gone to high school in Colorado, but they are really, and sadly typically, anything but "Colorado kids". Mom and Dad went to Stanford (or wherever) and only moved here because of Dad's profession. They grew up with no ties whatsoever to the University of Colorado, other than it is physically located 30 or 40 miles up the road. Having sucked in football for the past 10 years hasn't helped the impression. This situation is far more typical for the majority of the kids in Colorado metro area high schools than kids who have parents and/or other family who went to CU (or CSU for that matter). We're a transient state, and CU is, has been, and probably will always be fighting against the stream when it comes to "state loyalty" in high school athletes. Sorry, I just get tired of reading how CU is losing out on "Colorado kids" when in fact they are more likely "California kids who happened to go high school in Colorado". I'd love nothing more than to sign 5 or more top kids each year who went to high school in Colorado - regardless of where their parents are from. I'd love for CU to be relevant again in the college football landscape so that any kid would at least consider signing on, even if Mom and Dad went elsewhere. But let's be realistic. While CU should be able to get more "local" kids than they've been getting lately - whether because we've sucked, or the coaching staff was disinterested or lazy, or whatever other reasons there might be - there will always be some that want to go out of state for a variety of reasons. I truly get that it hurts to see "local" kids doing well for Stanford, Arizona State, Texas, Michigan, etc., but let's not get too melodramatic with the "local kid who got away" schtick.

    IF we become relevant again, we'll get our share of the local talent. However, realistically, we're never going to "lock down the borders".

    Stanford dominating on the LOS. Doesn't look good for us without much depth.

    Their d is impressive and their o is mostly running game.Championship formula. Stanford is the real deal.

    Every time I look up, I think I'm looking at a replay of McCaffrey running untouched to the house and have to double check the score to make sure it just happened.

    Who would have thought that ridiculous OL 4/5 star talent would be that great? They are going to be dominate on the lines for the future.

    Maybe Harbaugh steals a lot of their recruits away.
