It's the most wonderful time of the year That's right. The first college football saturday has finished. First impressions everyone? First of all, my Trojans. The showstoppers are gone. But comparing this to last year's first game, USC looks like a better TEAM. Booty trumped Matt Leinart's first game statistics. The backfield has four guys who all put on some nice moves. There are four big targets for Booty to pass to, a wall of an offensive line, a defense that looks MUCH improved, and a kicker who cleared the endzone on 8 of 9 kickoffs. I like what I see so far. Fight on! I had two upsets on my list: Notre Dame and Cal. GT is my upset team, and they nearly did it. Ah well, it just means Notre Dame will be higher ranked when USC beats them later this year. Cal can't ride two running backs to victory. They're just not good enough everywhere else to do that. Plus Tennessee is way too hungry after last season. The rest of the top 25 won, mostly against boring opponents (though Oklahoma had a game on their hands). Play of the day goes to that Louisiana-LA one-handed TD catch. That was insane. Oh yah, and way to go Colorado.
