How is it that Clemson and LSU have the same nickname (Tigers), same fight song ("Tiger Rag") and even the same nickname for their stadiums ("Death Valley")?  

Did one of them hire a coach from the other school or something?

College football rankings are so dumb. Why the hell is VT #13? Because they beat an FSU team that's already been established to be horrible? Also why is this game AT Old Dominion? Who scheduled that??

What continues to surprise me is how "meh" OSU's defense has been this year, save against Rutgers.  It's not that they are bad, but teams have been able to march down the field against them way more than I expected.  Oregon State did it a handful of times, TCU did as well.  Tulane just went 75 yards in 10 plays.

Texas A&M had a player booted for targeting. Bang bang play where the runners head changes trajectory right before he's hit. Why can't the replay officials see there's not INTENT?

The way announcers pronounce Deondre Francois's last name bugs me.  They get the second syllable right, but the first shouldn't rhyme with Ann.  His name should be more like "frawn-swa".

There's no SMH gif expressive enough to represent what I thought when I saw a bunch of OSU fans hold up "Urban Strong" signs. They look like such respectable people, yet in the region of the brain where normal people have a conscience their brains presumably just feature a picture of Marcus Hall flipping off the world at-large.
