A stat no one could have imagined

Yes, only one night's worth of games have been played; but this is truly worth mentioning...

Paul Johnson has Georgia Tech's offense leading the nation in passing yardage (and yards / attempt).  (I can't believe I just typed that)

But seriously, GA Tech #1, Mississippi State #2...

 

Hatcher: We just ran out of guys

Last night Murray State put up a battle against Louisville; but in the end the team from the Big East wore the Racers down.  Louisville opened up a 21-0 lead and held on for a 21-9 victory.  

It was a hot, humid night in Louisville and both teams had a number of players cramp up and go down. 

Murray State head coach Chris Hatcher said, "We had a bunch of players play positions they've never played before just to get through the ballgame....we just ran out of guys." But overall, "I was real proud of our effort...they really played hard." 

 

Addazio gets off to a great start

In his first game as the head coach at Temple, Steve Addazio had his team ready to go. Playing cross-town foe Villanova, Addazio's guys put up 42 in a 42-7 win against Andy Talley's team.

Watch the first few minutes of Addazio's post game comments, he's pretty pumped about this team.

Great quote from him, "I told the team, I had to apologize to them, I was like a lunatic out there today; but I wanted to set the stage for how I want our team to play...to play the brand of football that we said we were going to play."

Kiffin puts Scout team in powder blue and gold

Lane Kiffin has his guys run through some situations today against the scout or "service" team.  

To aid in differentiating the offense from the defense, Kiffin thought it was a good idea to put one set in a different color jersey.  Makes sense.  Then Kiffin added a little twist; he put the "service" team in powder blue jerseys with gold numbers.  

Reporter: "What was the thinking behind using the powder blue jerseys"

Kiffin: "There's a rivalry around here....hopefully they'll be motivated to get off of service team so they won't have to wear the powder blue.

Reporter: "So kind of symbollic message?"

Kiffin: "Not really, we were bored."
