    After a subpar 6-5 season, but a Gator Bowl win, Florida looked to regroup. Coming into the season #15, Florida faced ECU week 1. (Thank you Richuation I needed that lol) It looked like the same old underperforming team, as they trailed 13-0 (ECU missed XP) in the first quarter but coach Brian Brianton tried to tell the team to stay focused and remember that they had superior talent at nearly every position. The Gators regrouped and came out fighting. While they still trailed 20-14 at the half, they shutout the pirates in the second half with a 31-0 showing (as coach Brianton's second Jack and Coke mellowed the playcaller.) The team largely relied on their superior blocking and the solid running of HB Mike Gillislee who put up 206 yards and 4 TD's on 36 attempts. ECU had one final chance to stay in it as the end of the 4th quarter came to a close but Senior DT Omar Hunter crushed the quarterback ([tootownhorn]User FF[/tootownhorn] and Sophmore RE Ronald Powell scooped it up and took it to the house. The Gators know every game won't be 45-20 against an unranked, outmanned ECU in the Swamp... but a win is a win... and Coach Brianton is happy to start the year 1-0 as the team focuses on each game one at a time and the quest for 6 victories and back to back bowl eligibility.

    No problem, I gave everyone a tune up game in Week 1 to give us a chance to get to know our teams for 2012.

    Nice win...

    And They're Off...

    University of Michigan kicked off their 2012 campaign by dismantling Eastern Michigan 59-17. Most of the team played in this game as the starters were pulled after the first drive of the 2nd half. Denard Robinson looked as good as ever with 170 yards in the air and another 138 of the ground and 4 TDs. Robinson connected with WR Roy Roundtree for 2 TDs and 74 yards passing. Four RBs saw action on the day as Michigan rolled up over 300 yards rushing. The defense looked in control as DE Craig Roh had two sacks on the day.

    The lone blemish was an injury to starting RB Vincent Smith who had 2 TDs prior to being injured. He is looking at up to 4 weeks on the shelf. The coaching staff was very excited by Smith inthe offseason as he added top flight speed to pair with Denard to form a lethal combination. In the meantime, Fitzgerald Tousaint and company will fill in the holes.

    Next Week: Bye

    Miami Defeats SMU 52-17. In a tune-up game the Canes look good in their season debut. The team does not want to think about last year National Championship team because it was just that, LAST YEAR! Everyone is focused and the team comes in thinking they have something to prove. The Canes are being led by the quarterback Alonzo Highsmith and Runningback Lamar Miller. Both of the players had good games in the season debut. Highsmith went 10 for 20 with 227 yards and 2 TD's. Miller rushed for 123 yards on 17 attempts with a TD. The Canes offense will miss star Wideout Travis Benjamin from last year, but feel they can be just as effecient with the talent the have this year.

    The Cornhuskers got the ground game going in this one, racking up 240 yards on the ground. HB Rex Burkhead scored twice, once on a 3 yard td run and another on a 5 yard reception. The Blackshirt defense did just enough to hold off the face paced offense of Southern Miss.

    The Buckeyes got off to a slow start to 2012, and it appears that this year is going to be very similar to last year, with the Bucks relying heavily on their defense. San Jose State jumped out to an early lead, maintaining the 7-0 lead until the 2nd quarter when the Buckeyes were able to get an interception return for a TD. They were able to hold the Spartans scoreless for the rest of the game, while putting up 24 unanswered points, but it was a sloppy win. Star HB Jaamal Berry got hurt, but true sophomore Carlos Hyde came in and was more effective, rushing for 96 yards and 1 TD on 17 Carries. Hyde may make a push for a larger share of the carries once Berry returns in 2-3 weeks.

    On a rainy Saturday night in Death Valley, the No. 7 LSU Tigers defeated Tulane 49-6 in the Battle for the Rag, a rivalry that dates back to 1893. The Tigers earned their 70th victory in the series and Tulane failed to notch their first win over their in-state rivals since 1982.

    The LSU defense manhandled the Green Wave all night, keeping them out of the end zone and holding them to just 165 yards of offense. Seven of the 10 Tulane possessions resulted in a punt and both of the Green Wave's red zone possessions ended in field goals.

    The wet conditions forced the Tigers to keep the ball on the ground, but LSU had no problem putting up points. The duo of junior running backs Michael Ford and Alfred Blue combined for 375 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Sophomore running back Spencer Ware added two scores, and redshirt freshman quarterback Billy Coles got in on the party with a 12 yard touchdown of his own.

    The success on the ground eased the pressure on Coles who made his first start in a LSU uniform. Coles completed six out of 10 passes finding star receiver Reuben Randle four times to the tune of 71 yards. Coles did throw an interception early in the second half proving the freshman still has room to grow.

    The Tigers now head north to Omaha, Neb., for a showdown against the Cornhuskers, an early-season battle between top 10 teams.

    WV's big play ability was to much for the Thundering Herd. WV hit early with long option runs that set up the deep ball. This combo put the Herd in a halftime hole 34-10. A pick 6 on the Herds first drive of the second half was followed up by a long bomb TD for WV on their first offensive possesion of the 2nd half. WV toned down their playcalling and pulled their offensive starters with 4 minutes to go in the third quarter, but the WV didn't get the memo. The Mountaineer defense returned two more pick 6's against the struggling Herd offense in the 4th quarter. The Mtn'eers defense scored 21 point in the second half...that's 4 points more than the Marshall offense scored the entire game.
