College Football Roundup Week 3: What It All Means. Welcome Back, Pac-12

The Most Overrated Thing Was …

All of the hype about the Group of Five programs after the first two weeks, and that doesn’t include …

Week 2 was all about the Sun Belt, and rightly so.

Marshall shocked Notre Dame, Appalachian State beat Texas A&M, and Georgia Southern helped push Scott Frost out the door at Nebraska.

GameDay caught on and went to Boone, North Carolina, but the Appalachian State game vs Troy was on ESPN+, meaning most of the world missed what’s 1000% certain to be the best ending of the college football season.

Meanwhile, Georgia Southern got stomped by UAB, Louisiana lost to Rice, and Marshall got sad tromboned by (wah, wahhhh) Bowling Green.

The Sun Belt is about to start eating itself in conference play, Conference USA doesn’t have a team good enough to come close to being a national thing, the Mountain West is awful, the MAC isn’t very good, and the American Athletic Conference is tapping out as its top teams are waiting to move to better conferences.

Houston was supposed to be the best of the Group of Five bunch, and then it lost to Kansas this weekend. UCF already lost to Louisville, Cincinnati lost to Arkansas, and …

DOESN’T ANYONE WANT TO PLAY IN A NEW YEAR’S SIX GAME?

Forget about the College Football Playoff – there’s no Cincinnati scenario this year. There’s no one who appears to be good enough to end up in the automatic slot in the New Year’s Six – it’ll be the Cotton Bowl – but someone has to go.

In the end it’s all just a glorified exhibition until the College Football Playoff expands. However, it’s still an honor, it’s still a big stage, and it’s going to be a war of attrition to see who ends up getting the spot.
