Now that Frost has been sacked, it looks like Jimbo is the one the spotlight is shining on. Which isnt shocking given how little he has done at A&M, just got the #1 recruiting class and lost to App State.

It was pretty shocking to see Nebraska sack Frost when they could have saved $7.5m by waiting 2 weeks.

The buyout for Jimbo is apparently north of $80m from some reports that i have read online. I feel that is too much, even for the A&M Boosters.

It was more shocking that Nebraska didn't sack Frost last season tbh.

Our game against South Carolina this week could be a danger game. It is on the road and we have had a tendency in the past to drop an away game that we should win comfortably. Saying that, I think we win by 30 but a tough slog with us just getting over the line wouldn't surprise me either.

A few other potential trap games this week too:

UTSA @ Texas. UTSA lost to Houston in week one in OT, and beat Army week 2.

If Pitt aren't on their game Western Michigan can give them some grief

Fresno State @ USC. Oregon State needed a TD as the clock expired to knock them over last to week.


Other 50/50 games

Michigan State @ Washington
Texas Tech @ NC State
Miami @ A&M (no idea which team will under perform the other)
BYU @ Oregon


Plenty to choose from before conference play gets serious

Oh and the biggest lock should be that North Dakota State University will knock over Arizona. They have an incredible record against FBS teams

I love she's paired up with A&M and their result on the weekend was perfect.

It's always going to be A&Ms year....

I get the feeling they will be paired together for a couple of years until she ultimately flips on them to Texas.

2013 - NDSU 24-21 Kansas State
2012 - NDSU 22-7 Colorado State

8-3 all time is pretty incredible.

After the Iowa game with 6 straight wins I think teams took them off their ooc list.

They're legit the best FCS program going, 41-3 record in the playoffs.

They got Arizona this year, Colorado in 2024 and Oregon in 2028 (rescheduled from 2020)

But they still got open spots in 2023, 2025 and 2027 onwards to fill

FSU and Louisville on ESPN now for some Friday night football.

FG kicking in college football is just so variable. Just missed a 35 yarder

FSU have started well, and could have turned the corner on their terrible years.

They'll have some tests in the coming 4 weeks with games against NC State, Wake Forest and Clemson - so will see how much they've improved.

Was it just me who thought Louisville should have had a penalty for a late hit out of bounds on 3rd down late on? I was gobsmacked the ref standing right there didn't throw a flag.

He was hit on the other side of the meter thick side line, so a clear a flag as anything
