    I know UF and UM play that Saturday, but I think other schools that have to travel to Hawaii and Hawaii will have games that week too

    After 1.5 hours of watching gymnastics, it hits me just how much I need football in my life.

    No.., but the time is great for a night out with wings and beer. Orlando should be hopping
    The tickets are just too expensive for a casual fan of these teams. Definitely cheering for Miami

    Anyone going to the Cows vs Wisconsin on Friday night, the day after our game? if not, make sure to watch Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor pad his stats for his Heisman campaign

    He’s a 2,000 yard rusher from last year. Should run for 300 yards in front of the majority Wisconsin fans at Ray Jay

    I know I was thinking of going, but you can't touch a ticket for less than $100.

    I pretty much only watch AAC football. I have a couple of other teams but I'm too busy to set aside the time to watch them.

    Read an article about Miami scrimmage yesterday. Said the defense completely dominated and the offensive players had look in their eyes like they were withdrawing. Doesn't sound good.

    It would be a great start to the season if the Gators fall to Miami.:sunglasses:

    Remember when Tate Martell posted a video of himself making a throw to intimidate Justin Fields? Then when fields transferred in to tOSU, Martell ran to the transfer portal lol. Even he knew he couldn't back up his trash talk. Now he's a back up at Miami.
    I don't stay up on Miami but I get the sense that all that "The New Miami" talk is going to ring real hollow in a few weeks.

    You’re right. I read the USF Wiscy comment right before and confused it.

    Tate lost his job at Miami after losing his job at OSU to the guy who lost his job at Georgia.

    Miami needs to admit defeat and either hire Butch or the Pirate.

    Don't worry they'll just say they're rebuilding again

    Looking at some of the week 1 games, Florida State at Boise State. I have little confidence in Willie's ability to drive the bus in Tallahassee. He may lose his drivers license this year. I plan to watch the Cincinnati UCLA game. It would be big if the Bearcats win...:sunglasses:

    I expect Boise to win handily and the fire Willie talk will start early

    UM fans think they are back every year until week 9 they have 3 losses. UF travels well.

    Curious if UCF fans will be obscured by the giant ESPN logos.

    The Gators have always been good at losing early, then doing enough late to let the P5/SEC bias work in their favor.

    FSU is still paying the $3 million buyout from Oregon and $1.3 million that Oregon had to pay for the USF buyout. IF they fire Slick Willie he gets 85% of his $30 million dollar contract which currently would be somewhere between 20-15 million. They would then likely have to buy out another coach to get him to FSU. I don't think WT is going anywhere. All this from a guy who does not even have a winning record overall. What a scam.

    "FSU is still paying the $3 million buyout from Oregon and $1.3 million that Oregon had to pay for the USF buyout. "

    Probably why FSU just announced beer/wine sales in the stadium this year. 1) for revenue 2) the fans will need a drink after willie's poor play calling

    I could make a killing on my UCF seats. Season tickets have actually become an investment. However, no amount of money can by the amazing UCF gameday experience

    Their AD is putting all the blame for their troubles on Fisher's lack of discipline.

    There’s probably more than enough blame to spread around. Truth is, you really have to work hard to turn a national championship club into such a sh*tshow in such a short period of time.
