    By the way, does college football have a paid "package" to hear radio calls on the computer, like the MLB and NFL? Or can I hear games for free on the flagship station's website?

    When I was as Cal State Fullerton, they still had a football team. Every year they'd agree to go to some place like Clemson or Georgia, and hand them a "cupcake" in exchange for a check to cover all the expenses of the entire athletic program for the year.

    I always thought this was really sad for the players who inevitably had to endure the 84-0 beatings. What do you think?
    I think yahoo has a service for that but not sure. Most of the colleges are now charging money to listen to their team's games and they are also available on XM. I switched to XM because the SEC signed all of their schools up with them. If you can't catch larrymunson.com should have the highlights of the games each week the he broadcasts. I think I am going to try and make an even better retrospective from other highlights posted on that site. Not all of them were used.

    As far as the cupcake games with a 12 week schedule I think each team should play one, and one game only. It evens the athletic playing field for the other sports money wise. Some of the lower division schools are smart and play a weak team (like Standford, Duke, or Northwestern) they have a better shot at beating and sometimes do. I think the conferences that have the same or similar number of teams should play each other during the season - like each SEC team play at least one Big 12 and ACC team each season.

    So what happened to the tix? Are you watching the Rutgers game right now? I may look into the gameplan but I don't think the wife would approve.

    LSU is crap. I hope they get better, b/c that number 2 ranking thus far is undeserved/unwarranted. MS St. D was running all over 'em.

    1st quarter was a joke. #2 maybe, but not in the rankings.

    Re: The Official 2007 College Football Thread

    I am sooo pumped for that Idaho-USC game.

    The Vandals and the Trojans.

    Martha and the Vandellas would have a better shot.

    By the way, want to know how to make some USC fans and alums angry? Call 'em..."Southern Cal".

    They don't like that for some reason. In fact, USC's media guide advises that they are not to be referred to as "Southern Cal".

    Meantime, GO BRUINS!

    By the way, do you remember that UCLA beat Southern Cal last year...oops, sorry

    I don't think there should be rankings at all until week 4.

    Agreed. The pre-season rankings are based mostly on last year, and by week four, teams have usually played three games, even one that might not be the Sisters of the Poor Cupcakes, so you'll have a truer read.

    On another topic...

    The most important event in college football tomorrow takes place in Blacksburg, Virginia as the Hokies of Virginia Tech take the field for the first time since the more than tragic events of last April.

    ESPN is there for its pre-game...and that should be some moment, when the Hokies take the field for their opener.

    That was then, this is now.

    Someone needs to tell Syracuse that their Orange uniforms are UGLY!!!!!

    Here's hoping that Duke will get their first win in almost 2 years (that's 20 straight losses). They better win, I'm hobbling across their campus to see them. If they lose I am going to be sad for Mr. Dkat....

    Duke? Football? HUH?

    The UCLA reference was more a joke about the "Southern Cal" thing.

    I know how good USC is this year. They're loaded.

    Just don't call em Southern Cal.

    And I agree about the Syracuse unis.
