Our second week of college football is officially over, and it was one for the ages.
There are lots of different things we could break down from Saturday. However, I’ll stick to my four biggest observations.
Here we go.
1) Ohio State has some serious problems.
The Buckeyes got exposed Saturday night against Oklahoma. Their secondary got torched by Baker Mayfield, and the passing game was pathetic. J.T. Barrett has always been dogged by the belief he’d never turn into a solid downfield passer. Well, last night he proved all of his critics correct. OSU fans better hope this was just a one-time slip up because if this is the real Buckeyes team there will be serious problems in Columbus.
2) Baker Mayfield looks unstoppable.
Oklahoma star quarterback Baker Mayfield had himself a night against the Buckeyes. He threw for nearly 400 yards and he tacked on three touchdowns. He was surgical against Ohio State. Mayfield might be my favorite for Heisman if the vote were held this morning.
3) Georgia should be embarrassed with their post-game celebration.
Georgia beat Notre Dame by a point last night, and their celebration after the game is proof how far expectations have fallen for the program. Notre Dame won four games last season, and yet, the Bulldogs behaved like they just won the national championship. Is this how little Georgia expects out of themselves? Beat a rundown Notre Dame team by a point and it’s time to celebrate? If I was Georgia’s coach they’d be running sprints until they got it through their heads that they should expect much more than beating Notre Dame.
4) Bret Bielema might finally be on the hot seat.
Bielema and the Arkansas Razorbacks got blown out 28-7 at home against TCU. It’s unlikely he’s going to get fired this season, even though the program might not win more than five games. It appears fans are finally opening their eyes to the disaster that has been the reign of Bret Bielema in Fayetteville.
