COLLEGE SICKNESS: What we learned Week 2

The second week of the college football season gave us our first taste of the upset bug. Oklahoma St, Nebraska and Arkansas failed to keep their loss total at zero. The top ten didn’t have to much change to it, but there is a new top dog. What else did we learn?

UCLA is not a team to be taken lightly this year. Jim Mora has lit a fire into Bruins’ Nation after humbling the Cornhuskers.

Savannah St is finally done with their death march.

Lane Kiffin is going to try his best to get the Heisman for Matt Barkley; 6 more touchdowns this past weekend for the soon to be top 5 pick,

The Big 12 still hasn’t played a ranked team in non-conference. The Pac 12 just beat 3 this past weekend.

Jarvis Jones is an absolute beast! The SICKNESS Level is high with this one.

UW isn’t ready for primetime yet, but LSU is just as ruthless as they were a year ago.

The Ol’ Ball Coach has something brewing in Columbia.

The Black Mamba scored again while you read this. In 18 touches, he has almost 250 yards of offense and 5 TDs. Next up Tennessee Tech…

All prayers go out to Devon Walker and his family.

 

SICKNESS APPROVED

 

Johnathan Franklin. Nebraska came into the Rose Bowl expecting to see the same old Gutty Little Bruins. Instead they found the 3rd ranked rushing attack led by the running back dubbed “Jet-Ski”.  He leads the country in rushing with 431 yards. He’s led a turnaround in culture that has the Bruins ranked for the first time since 2008. Time will tell if this is going to be sustained all year long, but it looks like this is a far different team from the one that got rolled last year in the Pac 12 Title Game.

Louisiana-Monroe. We don’t want to hear any excuses from down in Hog Country. Even without Tyler Wilson, Arkansas should’ve been able to dispatch of the Warhawks.  Unfortunately, Kolton Browning didn’t read the script beforehand. He threw for 412 yards, scored the winning touchdown in OT, and gave the Warhawk faithful a memory they won’t soon forget.

Denard Robinson. This is his first appearance of the year in this section, but it’s sure to not be the last. Air Force gave the Wolverines a tough test putting up 417 yards of total offense. Their issue was that Robinson 426 yards of his own and  had 4 touchdowns (2 rushing). I’m not sure that anyone in the country can stop this guy as long as his body holds up. He’s sure to put up some more insane numbers this week with UMASS on the schedule.
