NCAA Football & Basketball Thread
Haven't seen a college football thread and don't know if a lot of people even watch it but if you do here's the place to talk about it. The season kicked off last night as Michigan lost to Utah in Harboughs return to the college game. #2TCU was winning last I saw against Minnesota.

My favorite team is the Louisville Cardinals, 2nd year in the ACC and they could drop off a bit from last year.

Tell your favorite team and how you think they will do this season to get things going.

I don't really follow much minor league football but I'm going to try a bit more this year. MSU plays tonight, woo go Spartans

SPARTANS, FUCK YEAH! They get tested by Oregon next week I believe it is.

Simple Fan 09-05-2015 03:17 PM

21 Stanford upset by Northwestern 16-6.

Simple Fan 09-05-2015 03:41 PM

Louisville and Auburn kicking off.

Simple Fan 09-05-2015 03:48 PM

And with 2 QBs on the field they throw a interception on the first damn play.

Simple Fan 09-05-2015 07:07 PM

Damn, lost 24-31 if not for a botched handoff in the first half that got taken back for a TD might have been a different outcome. But Lamar Jackson is going to be a star.

SlickyTrickyDamon 09-05-2015 07:16 PM

Pay them salaries.

Simple Fan 09-05-2015 07:20 PM

Why they are college students? Did you get a salary in college? They go to school for free what more do they need?

SlickyTrickyDamon 09-05-2015 07:34 PM

They don't all go to school free. Nor are they given enough time to actually benefit from school. Big Ben graduated like 10 years after his college football days were over.

Droford 09-05-2015 07:36 PM

I'm rooting for Wisconsin to pound Alabama but even if Bama loses they'll still probably be in the playoff

Simple Fan 09-05-2015 07:39 PM

That's on him plenty of guys graduate early. Still don't see the point in paying them. If they did pay them they should make them pay tuition with partof their salery. That way it teaches them how to handle money before the get that big money.

SlickyTrickyDamon 09-05-2015 07:41 PM

The big money is an illusion to keep them from trying to unionize. Only a fraction of them will get anything like it.

Simple Fan 09-05-2015 07:42 PM

Them unionizing is silly to.

Simple Fan 09-05-2015 07:43 PM

BYU beat Nebraska on a hail marry to end the game.

Narcissus 09-09-2015 01:03 AM

PAC-12 looking like hot garbage right now.

10 SEC teams in top 25. Most ever.

Nothing ever changes lol

My college (Sacramento State) is going to face the Huskies this week. We are going to get shit stomped.

Something had to changes if that's the most ever. its just week 1 though the SEC will beat each other up, I dont see them getting 2 teams into the playoff.

Simple Fan 09-12-2015 03:32 PM

Damn. Louisville loses to Houston 34-31. Missed a field goal with 49 seconds left. Freshman QB Jackson just made to many mistakes.

Thank your lucky stars you don't have to play THE NORTHWESTERN WILDCATS this year.

Clerk 09-14-2015 10:15 AM

so stupid how the players would go for degree especially big ben? he's set for life lol no need to still get degree

Simple Fan 09-14-2015 12:31 PM

They're not going to play for life and getting a degree is a lot of peoples goal in life. If someone wants to get a degree that's good for them, its not stupid.

Clerk 09-14-2015 12:33 PM

It's not needed. Ofcourse there not going to play for ever but they are making millions $$ i can live off 1 million dollars supporting me im a full time mma fighter wtf.

Simple Fan 09-14-2015 01:00 PM

Yea they make millions, and slot of them go through it quick taking care of family and friends. Also living extravagant lives and living in big houses and driving fancy cars. Its more of a NBA problem. A lot of kids get there degree in football because they have to stay 3 years before going pro.

Clerk 09-14-2015 01:10 PM

Well I've been in talks with the ufc and bellator about a 2 or 3 fight deal fights will probably be around 30-50k each fight not counting bonuses

Simple Fan 09-17-2015 08:06 PM

Louisville playing Clemson tonight. 3 weeks 3 different starting QBs.

Conspiracy Victim Vito 09-19-2015 03:09 PM

<font color=goldenrod>UConn had the chance to kick a easy FG to go into OT and set up a potentially huge upset in Missouri. Instead they threw it away on a stupid fake FG attempt.

Like I get the whole "nobody expects us to win, so let's go for it now instead of OT" thing, but shit...just call a regular play then. Half of Missouri's defense dropped back as soon as the ball was snapped because they saw the fake coming.</font>

Droford 09-19-2015 10:26 PM

Really want to see Alabama lose

Simple Fan 09-19-2015 11:30 PM

Damn what a play Ole Miss just shit out a touchdown lead 24-10 over Alabama.

Conspiracy Victim Vito 09-20-2015 12:26 AM

<font color=goldenrod>Ole Miss doing all they can to choke it away.</font>

I'll be going to the Kentucky/Missouri game, probably be the only person in the stadium wearing red.

Iceman King Gertner 09-26-2015 07:15 PM

Woooo Spartans. Fuck you Chips!

Simple Fan 09-27-2015 03:05 AM

Pretty cool UK beat Missouri. Love going to UK games in my Louisville gear. Get so many people to react to the red its awesome. Got to see some old friends and one got too drunk and threw up before the game but was ok afterwards.
