Saturday was the day to find out if Colorado was for real – No. 10, Oregon was the team that was tasked with testing the Buffaloes. Unfortunately for Colorado fans, Oregon made sure the answer to that was a resounding no! There are levels to this, Colorado is a middle-of-the-road PAC 12 team, and Oregon is a top-10 program.
Coach Prime as he likes to call himself, got out-coached and outplayed by the superior team. His arrogance rubs almost every division one football coach the wrong way.
I know that I am a hater for saying this, but Coach Prime has never proven he could be a head coach anywhere. Sure, Jackson State was good, but he had three, four, and five-star recruits and still could not win a Black College National Championship against a team with none.
He went and blew up the roster at Colorado. Unfortunately, he was after big-time skill position players and forgot that you win in the trenches. His comments after the game were telling as he proclaimed if you are going to beat me, you better get me now. The use of Me is very disturbing. Shouldn’t it be if you are going to beat US, you better beat US now.
For you Coach Prime fans, don’t get mad when teams like Oregon act the way they do towards Colorado, it’s not personal, and get this it’s not even racist! Those teams are just giving Coach Prime a taste of his own medicine, and he’s about to get another taste of it at USC next week.
“The Cinderella story’s over, men,” Lanning said in a fiery pregame speech. “They’re fighting for clicks; we’re fighting for wins.” He was right!
This game was expected to be an offensive showcase between Sam Hartman and a newly revolutionary Notre Dame offense and their impressive wide receiver room, but instead became an ugly defensive battle that finally culminated in a touchdown with no time remaining on the clock. Instead, however, it was an entertaining and competitive contest which reached all the way to its conclusion before coming down to one final touchdown with zero seconds left on the clock.
Ohio State emerged victorious, though I’m still unclear what we learned about them besides that their defense is better than expected and that Notre Dame still manages to find ways to lose. If either team gets the offense clicking they are both still playoff contenders, but the offenses have to show us more, the defenses are elite.
Nick Saban delivered another powerful reminder that Lane Kiffin may dominate every news conference, but no chance against Alabama on the field. The Tide defense was stifling and while the offense is not explosive they should improve during the season. Either way, Nick Saban is the greatest coach to ever walk a college sideline and the Tide will be a factor all year long.
Clemson had their most dominant and impressive showing in three years – yet still fell short against Florida State. Jordan Travis and Kalen DeLoach, as they rallied Florida State to an overtime comeback win. This lose would not be a killer for the Tigers, but when you combine it with an earlier loss to Duke the writing has to be on the wall for Dabo Swinney that he may have to dip his toes into NIL money and the transfer portal if he wants to compete for a National Championship.
Utah may be one of the most underappreciated teams in the country through four weeks.
The Utes have started out their season unbeaten. Notably, they’ve defeated two ranked opponents without their starting quarterback stepping in as a starter.
Utah’s offense wasn’t exactly impressive in their 14-7 win against UCLA, but Nate Johnson — starting in place of the injured Cameron Rising — did enough to secure victory, while their defense was impressive; holding UCLA to only 3-of-17 third down attempts.
The Utah Utes have often been overlooked due to a lack of offensive fireworks, in a Pac-12 league characterized by quarterback play. Utah won three consecutive games while scoring 24 and 20 points while totalling 14 points across those games – something Caleb Williams or Michael Penix Jr. typically manage before halftime each week.
When Rising returns the Utes have a shot to win a loaded PAC 12.
Kansas easily beat previously undefeated BYU behind three TD throws from Jalon Daniels, and a stifling defense that completely shut down the run.
On offense, Kansas has topped 30 points in five straight games dating to last season. The Jayhawks’ D held BYU to 9 — 9! — total rush yards and had three takeaways in the triumph.
The Jayhawks were undefeated last year until injuries hit and they look like they are even better this season.
