I think both teams and coaches (where the public animosity started) have things to be embarrassed about. It was a late hit that shouldnít have happened. The Colorado medical and coaching staffs should not allowed Hunter back on the field after it happened, which probably made his injury worse. Teams seemed ready to fight from the start. Shedeur Sanders shouldnít have been trying to poke someone in the eyes.

But hey, Iím a Miami fan. What do I know about bad behavior?

That's what the analysts are saying, no me. I am just regurgitating what I have been hearing. That said, USC is one of the elite and maybe since their offense is so good the defense gets less respect than it may deserve. I am hoping CU makes a game out of the next two (Oregon and USC). Cheers!

Not a narrative possibly. I saw what I saw and so did others even though you may want to downplay Blackburn targeting on that play. I don't condone Shedure poking Kamara's eyes through the face mask. There's no place for that in any sport.

I want to see Shedeur against Oregon. If he is still slinging the rock and moving the offense, they have a chance against USC defense. Could end up a Caleb vs Shedeur shootout.
It will most likely be that, Caleb and Shedeur shootout. Grab the popcorn because it will make for action packed TV. Best of luck but we have to get past Oregon next week.

But hey, I’m a Miami fan. What do I know about bad behavior?
Deion Sanders took offense with Norvell's comment about taking hats and sunglasses off when talking to adults because that is what his momma taught him. So what exactly was he saying here, Sanders' mom raised a son who doesn't know or respect talking to adults? What was the point of this? I can see to motivate his players but inferring something that comes from parental teachings of the opposing coach is surely going to be taken negatively and add fuel to a fire, which is what happened.

CSU came in with a chip on their shoulders because of all the publicity in Colorado, and the nation regarding what Coach Prime has done. The news in Denver is focusing on CU and ignoring CSU. With respects, this is nearly the case every year so what is different this year except the dynamics and those running the program.

While Deion Sanders talks a lot and some love it and some hate it, he generally can back up most of what he says. Is it boasting, pontificating or is it speaking a lot of truth? Hard to say but there are many who cannot handle what Deion is saying, and that includes Jeff Norvell. Norvell stirred up the Hornet's nest with the players at CSU so to add to the in-state rivalry he laced it to ignite. Given the circumstance what did anyone expect? As a fan of both programs and have recently lived in Fort Collins for a long time I put the aggression on Jeff Norvell and his comments. What was the purpose, motivation or jealousy or both? That is what I am thinking because he blamed officials for calling all those penalties against the Rams. Pardon the two targeting flags (Blackburn and Kamara), add unnecessary roughness when Tory Horton pushed Shilo Sanders towards the goal post after the pick 6 or the closeline tackle he made when Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi rushed for an apparent TD in overtime or the several illegal chop blocks that CSU was called for. No, the game from the Rams was undisciplined as if there was another agenda. That said, I hope normalcy returns to both programs and everyone, players and coaches, act with character and integrity.

And no, Miami football players were Choir boys. Maybe not. I am not saying what the players from "The U" did was right or wrong but it was a different time. They definitely had swagger when most programs didn't conduct themselves that way. But if memory serves me, they didn't play dirty football, just aggressive and they could play. Then again I was a Big10 and WAC football fan being from Colorado.

Now that some of those teams have finished their 3 game preseasons, we can get to real football. Hopefully these giant conference mergers can lead to less cupcake games.

If FSU was ever going to take down Clemson, it better be this year. When was the last time Clemson was unranked?

Clemson needs to place an ad in Craigslist for a kicker and another for a RB who can block.

Colorado show seems over.

Al Golden and Notre Dame gave one away.

Bama rebounded. Auburn looks terrible. Oklahoma and LSU look iffy.

Canes 4-0 heading into bye week and then our ACC schedule.

I agree that the super hype surrounding the CU program will now wane, especially if they lose to USC next week and thatís a probability. There will still be interest in what happens to Colorado if for the only reason to see how their season plays out. Using the transfer portal to totally reshape a program is new and this seems to be the great experiment. Also, Colorado may have a other win or three on their schedule, ASU, possibly Stanford and Arizona. The latter two would be if all luck goes to CUís side. If the season only produces 3 wins itís better than last year and thereís now a heartbeat in the CU football program. I suspect it will only get better when Coach Prime can sign some outstanding OL & DL dawgs.

No truly dominate looking teams. Transfer portal might have created parody in college football.

USC is 24 point favorites.

I will point out USC defense is still dogsh*t. Embarrassing giving up 25 points to ASU, starting a third string QB.

Not a convincing win for the Noles. Sad to say they look overrated.
One thing Iím hoping for is that UM and FSU both are undefeated going into their matchup.
Iíll be in Tallahassee for that game and want to see a prime time showdown!

I agree. If both teams make it into that game in November undefeated, order will be restored in college football.

At the end of the day thatís why teams play the games. Iím hoping for a CU win but Iím also trying to be realistic as well. To build a great program from the depths of ruins will certainly take more than an off-season. This will take several seasons.

CU has to run the gauntlet in the PAC theres gonna be alot of losses coming up.

ACC looks wide open, GL Miami. FSU should have lost to Clemson. RB makes the block, no QB fumble, Clemson wins that one.

Auburn does look terrible but Ole Miss lost it more than Bama won it scoring only 10 points with a supposed high-power O. Bama looks real vulnerable this year but honestly Georgia doesn't look all that great either.

OSU wow just wow. Looking back from later in this year they may point to this game as when the team gel'ed as the springboard to the National Championships.
