Biggest Takeaway in the SEC
Dan: Ed Orgeron was not fit for the job.
Jason: Nick Fitzgerald and the Mississippi State Bulldogs were good for one week… against a bad LSU team
Zach: Texas A&M is quietly 4-1, and their one loss was a game they easily should have won were it not for the heroics of Chosen Rosen.
Biggest Takeaway in the Pac-12
Dan: Is Sam Darnold overrated? If he keeps committing turnovers then yes.
Jason: Josh Rosen is an elite talent. He continuously carries a mediocre team to wins
Zach: Luke Falk is a legitimate Heisman contender.
Biggest Takeaway in the Big 12
Dan: It looks like Kansas is Baylor’s only chance for a win this year.
Jason: The talent gap is HUGE.
Zach: Mason Rudolph rebounded extremely well to cement his spot as one of the Heisman favorites.
Biggest Takeaway in the ACC + ND
Dan: Josh Adams is the most underrated player in the country.
Jason: Notre Dame needs to win a game against a ranked team before I can look at them realistically as a contender
Zach: Brandon Wimbush NEEDS to pass the ball a lot better and not be so heavily reliant on his amazing running ability. If not, Notre Dame does not stand a great chance against USC in 3 weeks.
Biggest Takeaway in the Big 10
Dan: At least 3 or 4 one loss teams will come out of the Big Ten.
Jason: Brian Lewerke has been unbelievably inconsistent this year. This week we will see what he is all about.
Zach: Although promising after a strong week 1 against Ohio State, Richard Lagow is struggling and should not be the starter for Indiana.
Player of the Week
Dan: Jordan Chunn
Jason: Saquon Barkley
Zach: Bryce Love
Surprise Player of the Week
Dan: Malik Davis
Jason: Luke Falk
Zach: Max Browne
Bold Prediction for the Season
Dan: With so many weak schedules there will be at least two undefeated power five teams along with four other one loss teams.
Jason: LSU and Mississippi State fail to make a bowl game.
Zach: Florida State will finish with 7 losses this year.
