NCAA College Football 2019-20: Official Thread

It's June and still no thread?!

Your home for 2019-2020 College Football

Some sports feats since the last time Cal went to the Rose Bowl:

Boston Redsox win World Series (95 years)
Chicago Cubs win World Series (110 years)

St. Louis Blues win Stanley Cup
1 team from Florida, 1 from North Carollina, 1 from Texas and 2 from California have won the Stanley Cup

NE Patriots win 6 Superbowl Championships
Superbowl I played

A team from Canada wins the NBA championship

Indiana, Illinois and Minnesota Football go to Rose Bowl

If there are any curses left on any other team that has been around as long as Cal has I'd like to hear about it so add it to my list of "things I hope don't happen before Cal goes to the Rose Bowl" but I think I'm out.

Fair warning: My daughter will be at Appalachian State this fall, so you might notice an increase in posting about Fun Belt football.

Pro tip: It's pronounced App-a-LATCH-in. (Folks get it wrong a lot; I want y'all to know better.)

Also, this happened since Cal was last in the Rose Bowl:

Gig 'Em, Aggies!

You gonna make the trip to Athens, Fed?

I'm here for it.

Bold prediction: Louisville wins more than 2 games.

Also if you guys haven't heard we're going to be the ACC network's first all-access show this fall.

Last year was an off year for my travels as Cal had no compelling away games.

This year will be fun though as Cal plays Ole Miss in Oxford. I'll be heading down in late September, and hope to have a fun time in The Grove.

Will be flying into and staying in Memphis where i heard there is.... BBQ!

It's not the official start of the GWJ College Football Thread without BBQ coming up! So, here's to 2019 college football, another non-Rose Bowl year for Cal, and another year of Jayhawker getting mad at me when I declare the Rose Bowl is more important than the Playoffs!

Nah, I'm not as big on away games as my father and brother are. I might possibly try and take in the other SEC schools when I get a bit older (and my kids are older, too). I'd like to see them; I think I went to every Southwest Conference campus back in the day.

I was thinking of saying something snarky, but then I remembered that you folks jave a real coach now. In fact, you probably have a great coach.

Thank goodness we get you for your first game. I have a feeling L’ville will be a tougher out as the season progresses.

Go Irish! ☘️

Indeed the line for the opener is around 20-21 points. We didn't cover that in our final 5 or 6 games last year. Satterfield getting respect already hah.

Looking forward to Marshall making the Big Boy Mowers Gasparilla bowl this year!

And who says college football has no hope for the mid-majors.

Scott Satterfield was previously at ...

... say it with me now ...

App-a-LATCH-an State.

App hired NC State's former OC. I think he'll be fine for the 4-5 years he plans on staying.
