You thought it was a fluke didn’t you?
Surely Michigan can’t be that bad. To be beaten by a I-AA team in the Big House? There is no way the Wolverines will let Oregon come into Ann Arbor and pull a repeat of the App. State disaster.
The Ducks said ‘yes’ as they dismantled Michigan 39-7, using almost the exact same offense that the Mountaineers used the week before.
The 32-point loss was the largest since 1968. However, Michigan gets a breathier this week with Notre Dame.
The Un-luck of the Irish: As bad as Michigan looks, Notre Dame looks worse after the Nitany Lions blasted them 31-10.
The Irish has no offense whatsoever and their defense can’t stop a soul. In his second season at the helm, Charlie ‘the Savior’ Weis is 0-2 with no clue of what to do next. However, the man Weis replaced, Tyrone Willingham, is 2-0 with the Washington Huskies (Willingham went 11-2 his second season with Notre Dame).
Two seasons later, Willingham is released. So is Weis on the hot seat? Of course not, it’s only two seasons. Will the hook be as quick as with Willingham? We’ll wait and see.
Early season debate: Currently, Southern Cal is No. 1 in the polls. The Trojans had a bye week this week which should have hurt their rankings. LSU (ranked No.2) crushed then No. 9 Virginia Tech 48-7, looking like the clear-cut No. 1 after two weeks.
And to prove that preseason polls don’t mean a thing, another Top 25 team went down. No. 17 Auburn lost to South Florida 26-23 in overtime, knocking them out of the polls.
And finally…I would like to give big props to my alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Pembroke for their 26-20 win over Greensboro College, their first football win in 57 years. The Braves dismantled the football program in 1950 and revived it in 2006 and the season began on Sept. 1 with a 31-21 lost to Davidson.
Congratulations to UNCP.
