They said it couldn't be done, but here we are. College football's first week is upon us. Indeed, its first day is upon us.
The opening week's highlights include neutral-site games between Michigan and Alabama, Auburn and Clemson, and Notre Dame and Navy, debuts by teams newly joining the SEC and Big 12 and such, new homes for Urban Meyer and Mike Leach, and some pretty great opening night games for a change.
There's worthwhile college football content for the next five days, actually, as Friday finds Boise State, Stanford and Michigan State replacing their star quarterbacks, Sunday includes ... ummm, Louisville should be good, and Labor Day night could turn out to be the ACC Coastal title game. Important things!
