Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

COLLEGE FOOTBALL 2010: Auburn 22, Oregon 19. Now begins the long, long offseason

Outdated OP:
So we're less than two weeks away from the start of college football season! I couldn't believe we didn't have a thread yet so I decided to make it.

Storylines!
- Will Alabama repeat?
- Which Terrelle Pryor will show up for Ohio State?
- Coaches that still have jobs because their schools can't afford to fire them!
- Conference realignment!

The first games kick off Thursday, September 2nd! Rhode Island @ Buffalo is technically the first one, but Southern Miss @ South Carolina will be television on ESPN. (You can get a full run down of known TV games here - updated constantly throughout the season!)

So in the meantime, let's talk about what we're looking forward to, what teams we cheer for, and why we're getting hated on by the early season media projections. For instance, pre-season polls, pointless except for giving us something to argue about: http://espn.go.com/college-football/rankings

TV schedules are here: http://mattsarzsports.com/football2010.aspx

    Yeah, I think Noel Devine is good for 8-9 wins in the Big East - that conference will still come down to you guys, Pitt, or Cincy. I know Pitt is the massive favorite but I just can't see them pulling it off for whatever reason.

    I root for the Arizona State Sun Devils.

    I'm just hoping for a bowl game this year, I don't even care which one.

    Other than that, Alabama should be a fun team to watch, I'll probably spend most of my non-PAC watching on the SEC.

    It's not hard to show up when, in Tresselball terms, that means "3 and outs until the other team makes a mistake, at which point you win 9-6"

    Jasper Howard was a player who was stabbed to death on campus last year in the middle of the season. His player number was 6, so the opening set was altered in his memory.

    I actually went looking for the normal UCONN set, but couldn't find one in the five minutes I spent looking.

    Are you a current OSU student?

    Are we away at OSU this year?

    I might try to go in the event that there could be hangouts.
