So remember back on Friday when I called the Week 5 slate an excuse for the “College Football Gods to laugh at us?”
Yeah, about that. Because for whatever this weekend lacked on paper, it made up for in execution Saturday. After Week 4 was far and away the best weekend of the season, Week 5 provided a number of other high-level exciting games as well. In every possible way, it exceeded our expectations.
And with it, is now time for the Week 5 college football video recap. As always, I broke down the biggest games of the weekend and shared my own thoughts and insights.
Included this week are opinions on the following:
- Why Georgia and Tennessee each showed good and bad characteristics in their game on Saturday. For Georgia, their running backs are as good as anyone’s in college football, and they may be BCS title contenders because of it. But can their defense hold up over the next few weeks? As for the Vols, well, it was another disappointing loss for Derek Dooley, yes. But if they can run the ball like they did Saturday, Tennessee should have success against just about everyone on their schedule going forward.
- Moving to the Big XII, how about Texas’ epic win over Oklahoma State? In it we saw just how much Texas quarterback David Ash has developed and the Longhorns offense has developed because of it. Also, why don’t more people give Mike Gundy credit as an “elite” coach?
- Next up we head out to the Big Ten, where conversation turns to big wins by Nebraska and Ohio State. Are the Cornhuskers now the favorites in the Big Ten? And how about Urban Meyer, who is now 5-0 with the Buckeyes, despite inheriting a thin and inexperienced team?
Finally, we conclude by talking about all the other storylines from the day, including a Heisman-worthy performance from Geno Smith against Baylor, a sloppy road win for Florida State and of course, Alabama and Oregon handling business as usual.
Speaking of “as usual,” like in previous weeks, I encourage you to let me know what you think of the video, whether you liked or disliked it, and what I might do different going forward. And remember, if you did enjoy the video, subscribe to the YouTube channel, so you get updates every time a new video goes up.
And if you’re not following me on Twitter @Aaron_Torres, well, shame on you!
Kidding, but as always, thanks for the support.
