First of all, in this time of sports overload, I spent the entire afternoon watching the US Open. I am amazed at the talents of the pros and how they are playing brutal Winged Foot.
The season has now reached three weeks and we are seeing some cancellations, some games without fans and some games with limited fans. The big hope is that the season continues. The other sports have survived some early COVID cases, but college athletes on a campus is a different animal.
As far as the games played, some are entertaining both nothing noteworthy yet. The ACC has a good set of QBs. Clemson toyed with Citadel as Dabo knows how to score enough points to keep his ranking but not to run it up. Miami is better this season as transfer D'Eric King has helped the offense. For those who care, King is the reason Gators QB Kyle Trask never started a game in high school at Manville Texas. Notre Dame beat South Florida 52-0. NC State outlasted Wake 45-42 and UCF piled it on Ga Tech 49-21.
Louisiana edged Ga State 34-31 in OT as aspiring coaches Billy Napier and Shawn Elliot dueled. If you are looking for some coaching prospects, here they are. Coastal Carolina got their second consecutive ESPN game, great exposure, and the Chants handled Campbell. They face Louisiana soon.
Finally, the SEC begins play next weekend. For those of you who wanted more carnage within the league, you get it this year as it will be a 10 game slate all within the conference. Two losses may still be good enough to qualify for the playoff. The Big 10 is now planning to start in mid to late October. And in this crazy year, rankings are meaningless as of now.
