College football season is starting up folks. GenRep's Shorthorns start playing directional schools in a week or so ... so lets get the smack talk started!

I have no defense for why they are ostensibly playing a junior college, if you want national recognition why not play some good schools. To quote the Nature Boy Ric Flair, "If you want to be the best, you got to beat the best. Whooo!"

Looking forward to seeing the humbling of USC. Their coach should provide for some great drama.

It begins tonight. Release the Kraken! Sorry I meant crackers. The University of South Carolina Gamecocks (from the state where I grew up but do not necessarily support) are playing tonight. And Jade Ed I don't think you'll see the demise of USC tonight, but it will come.

USC meaning Southern Cal. This is the team that was #3 in the country but thought they should have been named #1 so went and bought themselves a trophy. This USC is in deep shit for violating all kinds of NCAA recruiting rules.
Their coach bailed right before all the rules violations were uncovered. The new coach is Lane Kiffin, a former Raiders coach who was fired for lying.
Should be a great year for the PAC 10!

I wish U South Carolina well in their endeavors.

I hope the USC East chokes on a boner, I grew up a Clemson fan. And as far as USC West, invariably someone will upset them, hopefully at home. I almost lived near the Coliseum at point in time.

Why is it that all the best teams get to pad their schedule with easy teams? Check out some of these opening games. Bunch of pussies. (I'm allowed to say that here?)

USC #14(Southern Cal) played Hawaii (USC wins 49 to 36- pretty embarrassing for them to let Hawaii score that much)
Alabama (#1) plays San Jose State (huh?)
Ohio State (#2) played Marshall (won 45-7)
Florida (#4) plays Miami, OH
Texas (#5) plays Rice
Oklahoma (#7) plays Utah State
Nebraska (#8) plays Western Kentucky
Iowa (#9) plays Eastern Illinois

Not pussies:
#3 Boise plays #10 Virginia Tech (finally a good game!)
#6 TCU is playing #24 Oregon State

Hoping to see some upsets after Saturday.

Jade,

You want to talk about Oklahoma taking on a easy teams? Did you see their next four games after that?

1. Free Shoes University
2. Air Force
3. Cincy
4. Texass

All of them are good or great teams. If there is one thing that Oklahoma does not lack this year ... it's strength of schedule. And with all your hate on USC (granted, they deserve it) ... are you a Tennessee fan or something?

You're an OU alumunus so of course you want to defend your team. Let's look at the schedule.

09/04/10 vs. Utah State Norman 6:00 PM CT (OU should take it no problem)
09/11/10 vs. Florida State Norman 2:30 PM CT (half-assed. Easy win for OU)
09/18/10 vs. Air Force Norman 2:30 PM CT (not that great the last few years, but good for a small school. OU wins.)
09/25/10 at Cincinnati Cincinnati, Ohio TBA (An art school, but the new coach has improved the team significantly. Put your money on OU.)
10/02/10 vs. Texas Dallas, Texas 2:30 PM CT (#5- will be a tough game, finally. Rivals. Anyone's game.)
10/16/10 vs. Iowa State Norman TBA (#9 so should be a close game.)
10/23/10 at Missouri Columbia, Mo. TBA (Strong team)
10/30/10 vs. Colorado Norman TBA (they suck. An OU gimme)
11/06/10 at Texas A&M College Station, Texas TBA (supposed to be decent, but OU will take it.)
11/13/10 vs. Texas Tech Norman TBA (not ranked this year, should be an easy win for OU)
11/20/10 at Baylor Waco, Texas TBA (Awful. Stick to science Baylor. OU massacre)
11/27/10 at Oklahoma State Stillwater, Okla. TBA (might be tough for OU, but they should win).
12/04/10 Big 12 Championship Arlington, Texas TBA

OU season: 11 wins and 1 loss (to Texas)

Nope- not a TN fan. Can't stand when teams gloat over easy wins.

I agree with Jade Ed the only "easy" game is against Baylor and honestly their stadium isn't too big so it will almost feel like a home game because I'm sure the OU fans will come out.

Only Utah, Air Force, FSU, and Cincy are the out of conference teams so the other games are not of their choosing.
OU should easily win all four of their non-conference games. A lot of sacrificial lambs. Why not add Kansas or Kansas State, both Big 12 conference teams to the schedule?

USC plays Hawaii, Virginia, Minnesota, and Notre Dame as their non-conference games. Notre Dame is always tough. I think ND will take it.

UCLA plays Kansas St. AT Kansas St. and Texas AT Texas- two brutal schools- in their non-conference schedule. If they win these, they should beat the rest of the PAC10.

#1 Alabama has San Jose State and Duke on their schedule. Nice way to pad the wins. On the other hand, maybe Penn State will give them a good work out.

Probably shouldn't talk any smack this morning since Oklahoma barely got by Utah State. With that said however, a win is a win. I'm laughing at calling FSU, Air Force, and Cincy "sacrificial lambs". Florida State is ranked 20th (sure to move up after this weekends shellacking of Samford). Cincinnati is down from last year, but it's in Cincy and road games are always trouble, especially in the middle of the season. Air Force runs the option, and you hardly see it anymore so game planning is going to be critical to get the win in that game.

I'd much rather play USC's non-con schedule. Oh in regards to UCLA, Kansas State sucks. The only thing brutal about that game should have been the traveling. Guess UCLA is ready for another mediocre season.

Oh, and GR ... who is going to flinch first? Texas or Oklahoma?

I think we will first. You guys had your scare and I think you are more apt to get your shit together. At some point we will stop playing junior colleges and DII schools and take on somebody good. I'm thinking the Tech game is going to be scary considering the last time they traveled to Lubbock the results were not so good. And I am actually a fan of Tuberville and watched him at Auburn.

@TJ - I'm surprised to see you had a kind thing to say about Texas (Hook 'em). After Rice this past week, I don't know what to think about their chances. Although the game was technically "away", and we did put them away more easily than how y'all handled Utah State. That said, I don't envy your non-conference schedule one bit.

@GR - Didn't realize you were a Texas fan...should've known after the Shiner Bock comment a couple of weeks back. Nice to see a friendly face around these parts, even if you do hate the 'Boys. ;)
