So I figured I'd keep posting my CFB takes to practice writing, I'm a journalism at Kennesaw State in GA. So here are a few of my takes on this past weekend in College Football.
First Crazy thing Highly Ranked Oklahoma Sooners lost to to the major underdog Iowa State. As this game went on more and more CFB fans tooned in to watch this upset go down amd more Sooners fans watched and cried! The best part about this was Iowa State was starting their second string quarterback who was also their starting LINEBACKER. So he took the team down field and scored a touchdown and turned right around and sacked Heisman hopeful Baker Mayfield on there next drive. Now OU was a top 4 ranked team and now this will mix things up and it will be hard for the Sooners get back to being a top team because their Big 12 schedule isnt very strong.
Another interesting thing to happen this weekend happened during the Bama vs TAMU Game. Now the Tide still Rolled but the Aggies put up quite a fight against Bama. This was Bamas first semi big game and A&M didn't let the game go without a fight. The point I'm trying to make is Bama really doesnt have a tough schedule this year, the toughest regular season game they have is Auburn at the end of the year and I wouldn't be surprised if Auburn or even a UGA in the SEC championship gave them a surprise punch in the mouth and upset them. I don't want to entertain this idea too much because Bama and Saban are definitely battle tested and are always over prepared for every match up, but its definitely interesting.
Speaking of the Georgia Bulldogs they are red hot right now! The pride of the team is their stronghold defense, every opponent they face struggles to move the ball on them. Their offense is firing on cylinders and thats with a freshman QB Jake Fromm because their usual starter was injured in UGA's first game. Now UGA is known historically for being excellent in the regular season and sleeping in the post season ( something all GA teams are known for), but as they are under new management with second year Coach Kirby Smart A Saban disciple himself has this team fired up and I would not be surprised if they gave some of the playoff regulars fits this post season.
A few honorable mentions before I shut up. Michigan Lost to Michigan State on Saturday and people are starting to take a look at Harbaugh's coaching ability. All I have to say is his winning percentage has only gone up since he's been there and its a hard transition from managing egos in the NFL to being the recruiting military general you have to be in College. The Texas Longhorns took an exciting victory over Kansas State in double overtime and could kick Oklahoma while they're down in the red river rivalry game this coming weekend, definitely going to be a must watch game.
Anyways I hope you enjoy what I write, I love Sports debates so comment below with your takes or hit me up on Twitter @Porkchop971. Shout out to Andy and Joe for giving the Dirtballs a platform to give there takes. till next week Fam!
