Looks like Jerry's got the Rainbow Warriors coming to Las Cruces this weekend. Saw this in the Honolulu Star Advertiser talking up the opposition. What's wrong with this picture:

Holy crap.....did Jerry go out and get full body plastic surgery after his game against us? That almost looks like a totally different person in that photo.... :)

Syracuse may be undefeated, but they are not a good team. I've watched them against Purdue and Virginia and they were ultra lucky to win both.

I called for them to win last week, and thought they would win this week. I still think they are about a top 40 team today, but we’ll learn a lot more about them as the season develops. Upcoming they have:

Wagner
#12 NC State
#5 Clemson
ND
#24 Pitt
FSU
#21 Wake Forest
BC

I think NC St. being overrated, along with Pitt, and WF also over rated.

Hard to see them with more than 3 more wins.

And when the Gophers win tomorrow, ‘Cuse will be ranked higher (or recieving more votes) than our Gophers.

Cuse been in the dumps for decades so I’m excited for their fan base while they have the success. No way they’ll be undefeated, they have a tough road ahead with them games coming up.

As they should be. They have wins over Purdue , Louisville and Virginia. They don’t pass the eye test but believe it or not many coaches do not watch Friday night ACC games

Wow.....Mowins isn't my favorite play by play person but I have never listened to one of her calls and thought she didn't know what she was talking about.

I'm with you. She's still definitely not my preferred choice to listen to, but I think she's gotten better over the years.

She definitely gets an unnecessary bad rap. She's not the best in the business but is nowhere close to the worst. I don't mind her at all.

They might want to not televise that Iowa/Rutgers game. If someone stumbles across that without knowing much about college football, they might think it's the worst sport in the history of sports. I'm not sure I've ever seen an over/under at 35. that's pretty nuts.

Disagree. Up 24 - 0 just before half and look really unimpressive somehow. Giving up sacks and pressures, TFL’s, Chattanooga just giving away yards (7 Illinois receivers with a catch of 14+ yards, a few from ~25-40 yards), poor tackling.

Illinois fans will be puffing out their chests, but they still need to prove more.

I just want to get through the game with a win. Convincing win would be preferred....but we've dropped recent games against Illinois that we shouldn't including last year.....and the 31-55 loss in 2018 that got Robb Smith fired.

In the mid 90s Rutgers was up for a bowl bid...Syracuse was in the same division/league (whatever)...

Rutgers lost....Syracuse QB " the only bowl Rutgers is going to...is the one I got off."

I've watched 3 seconds of Michigan and Maryland and the game is already over.

Lol - opening kickoff bounces off of Maryland players face, Michigan recovers at 10, scores a TD on first offensive play......yeah, this one might be over quick. Typical Maryland, start fast, fall apart in the Big Ten.
