I can't believe the 2016 CFB season is already upon us and nobody has started a thread about it yet**cough-cough**you're slackin' Mark**cough-cough**. As I type this, there's a potential major upset in the works already, as the "#9" (as any sports fan knows, preseason polls are virtually worthless except as debate fodder) Tennessee Vols trail Appalachian State 6-13 late in the 3rd. Also, South Carolina Gamecocks trail Vandy 0-10 at halftime.

So, let's hear your prognostications and pontifications, folks!

One Texas team is playing great football… Gig'em Aggies…
Alabama appears to get tougher with every play.

Auburn is hurting...

Thanks, Ted! What a weekend! So hard to assess a team on the first game, but here's a few comments from me from the games I saw. 

GA's Nick Chubb...222 yards yesterday. Great come back story and a greater kid.
GA's QB Jacob Eason should be on every bodies radar screen. He's special. 

NC is gonna give some people problems in the ACC. That GA game was really good. 

Nice win @ Kyle Field for the Aggs too.    

Bama...is well Bama. Clearly the top team in the country. 

Gator's have Luke Del Rio, (Jack Del Rio's kid) at QB. Played decent. Showed he can think under pressure and can make the throws he needs too. 
The BIG story at UF is...WE HAVE A KICKER!!!! YippeeExcellentYippee  

Eddie Pinero...or as they call him now...Dinero..money! Wink  Wears #15 like Tebow and can DRILL some kicks.
He hit a 77 yarder in practice.

Ya Mark... we won but there is much to work on if we want to stay with the big boys! Pine was great and full of enthusiasm. Excellent

YES~~
Scarlett looked good at RB, Calloway is a STAR, and I think Del Rio will settle down and be decent.

But, GA looked average on D and TN struggled with App State. Missouri looked horrible at WV, SC was almost beat by Vandy, so the East is wide open, IMO.

Overall, I believe that everybody has caught up to the SEC in recruiting. Except Bama... Bama will kill you! Not to mention that coaching staff is intelligent, they evolve as the game goes on. Whereas most coaches "stick" to the game plan, even if it's not working.
If it is tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

You believe there's more parity now around the country and the SEC isn't as dominant as it once was?

For the most part yes... Except for Alabama. The athletes that they are able to get on the offensive and defensive lines is flat amazing! I could run in that backfield.

Texas-Notre Dame… WOW, what a game.  As enjoyable as any football game I've watched in years.  Texas may be back in the mix… I really expected Notre Dame to beat them handily…  welcome surprise.

Saw the first half and had to go to bed. That freshman QB for TX was putting on a show.

Yep. Wish FL would have hired him as Head Coach.
