    Congratulations guys, we made it to year two. Let's continue to see plenty of content on the forums, if anything more so than last year. I also really enjoyed using the AIM chat tonight. It's a good tool and an easy way to communicate with the league. ​
    This is when the fun really starts happening. Playing with players you recruited. More user games. A completely different college football landscape. And it all begins this week.​
    #8 Texas vs. Houston​
    #3 Notre Dame vs. Minnesota​
    #2 Wisconsin vs. UCF​
    #11 Florida vs. BYU​
    #7 Ohio State @ Cal​
    #20 Arkansas vs. SMU​
    #24 Oklahoma vs. Arizona State​
    #18 Georgia vs. Syracuse​

    Saturday morning and the sun hits Sanford Stadium. Yes it is the home opener of the season. Dawg Nation is getting read to pack the house. The smells, sounds, and feels of the stadium and of the tradition. Games of a glorified past. If you listen closely you can here the winds whistle through the empty corridors and tunnels. This is the moment every football fan dreams of. The season is about to begin and so much has changed since last season. Let the games begin!

    Syracuse will travel to Georgia to face the Bulldogs. What do we know about Syracuse? Very little. They have joined the ACC this year. There best player is senior kicker, Ross Krautman. There quarterback situation looks extremely grim and they don't have much of a defense. I would be extremely surprised if Syracuse didn't lose by 30. Georgia has Aaron Murray returning as quarterback for the Dawgs. He is in his senior year and hopefully will start off the year on good terms. Georgia has this game to test the waters as next week they will face a brutal Oklahoma team. Georgia needs to beat Oklahoma to prove they are a legitimate team this year. Last year they lost to every ranked opponent they faced. Hopefully they can get past this game and look towards #24 OU. This could be a trap game so Georgia has to be up tot the test. We will see how they start the tempo when this young season kicks off in an
    hour.

    Murray plays up to his potential, Georgia wins big
    It's surprising it took this long for Aaron Murray to look good back in the pocket for Georgia. Even though he was only playing Syracuse, he hadn't looked this good even when Georgia face FAU last season. Things looked to be headed in the right direction after this win. Georgia has playmakers all over the field this year. I really want to discuss the freshman that started and the ones saw playing time late in the 4th quarter. Lets talk a little about Aaron Murray stats first. Murray threw for 291 yards and 4 td's/0 int's. Did you catch the zero interceptions part. This is the first time in 13 months that Murray hasn't thrown an int in a game. He really proved something by that alone. Another key Some notable freshman performances were WR, Bryce Schneider, who had 2 catches for 50 yards and a td. Ross Williams had a few carries in the ball game and backup QB, Jeremy McDaniel completed 3 passes for 44 yards.
    I can't forget about the defense. All-American, senior CB, Malcolm Mitchell is continuing his campaign after a great season last year. He had 4 tackles and an interception. He locked down his side of the field. Beware QB's because if you throw to Mitchell he will intercept it. Syracuse was held in check my this great defense. They were only able to score when the second string defense was put into the game.
    Next week #24 OU travels to Athens for what should be an epic game!

    Freshmen Duo Dazzles in Anticipated Debut
    The #7 Ohio State Buckeyes opened their season with a route on the road against Cal. After months of off-season anticipation, Buckeye fans caught their first glimpses of freshmen tailbacks Ray Hall and Tavaris McLaurin, and what Urban Meyer's offense can look like with the proper playmakers. Hall and McLaurin were dynamic with the ball, but just being on the field opened things up for Braxton Miller and the Buckeyes offense. Miller spread the ball to six different receivers, completing 19 of his 23 passes for four touchdowns. He also rushed for 136 yards and two more scores. Miller will have a chance to improve upon his Heisman campaign next week, when the defending national champion Virginia Tech Hokies travel to Columbus.

    [​IMG]Longhorns D Leads Way to Win[​IMG]
    The 8th-ranked Texas Longhorns opened their 2013 campaign with a home game against the Houston Cougars. The Horns got off to a little bit of a sluggish start and seemed to be moving in slow-motion early on in the game, but the heralded defense soon took control as they continually pressured UH QB David Piland and forced 3 interceptions. One of those picks was returned by UT's Carrington Byndom for a 17-yard score in the second quarter as Texas captured the momentum and was never really threatened again. The offense was solid, if unspectacular, as HB Malcolm Brown rushed 22 times for 135 yards and a touchdown to lead a team rushing attack that accounted for 191 yards on 41 carries. Longhorn QB David Ash went 15 of 22 for 187 yards while tossing three scoring passes as the offense took care of the ball and the clock with no turnovers and nearly 21 minutes time of possesion.
    Next week, the Longhorns are off with a bye before heading to College Station to do battle with the rival Aggies of A&M in week 3 of the season.
