What We Learned In College, Week 4
-I can’t be the only one who thought Arizona-Oregon would be a good game. I’m just glad I didn’t stay up to watch it. I do think Rich Rod’s system will work in the Pac-12, but he needs more of his own recruits there.
-Kentucky’s defense looked decent yesterday, at least early on. Their offense, particularly at QB, did not.
-A first for me in the Penn State game: seeing a personal foul for a late hit out-of-bounds committed by the kicker. Seriously, the kicker. Thats Ficken ridiculous.
-Florida State proved that they are for real with a 49-37 win over Clemson, however their defence may be a bit overrated.
- Notre Dame showed that their defence is much improved over the last two years, containing the Wolverines on the ground.
- Oklahoma was the victim of this week’s biggest upset, falling 24-19 at home to Kansas State. This really makes things wide open in the Big 12.
- In another upset UCLA lost to Oregon State, who are now 3-0. Look for the Beavers to be ranked in this weeks top 25.
-LSU had problems putting points on the board against Auburn (who have struggled this year). Not a good sign for the LSU offence with some tougher matchups coming up.
-I lost count of the missed tackles by Missouri sometime in the first quarter. I know South Carolina is good, but come on.
-Not a great weekend for the Big 10. Iowa lost to the MAC and Illinois got rolled by the WAC.
-Hats off for a huge day by Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke who threw for an astonishing 730 yards, a new Division I record.
