Have you ever imagined what it must feel like to be a star college football player? Think about being a Heisman-winning quarterback and leading your team to the first ever College Football Playoff, hence Marcus Mariota.

It’s the calm before the storm. “Rivalry Week” looms next weekend, and for the first time in several weeks there wasn’t a “marquee matchup” on the books. Does that mean this Saturday didn’t offer up any noteworthy action? Not by any means. Big 12: Samaje Perine — Oklahoma. Have you heard of him? Me neither, but he stole the show …

Dear Deshaun Watson (and fans of Clemson Football), I’d like to apologize. You were looking so good, and Clemson was on such a roll, and then I took you for my College Fantasy team. I’ve given in to my curse. Two straight weeks, two straight Heisman hopefuls injured. Taysom Hill, I apologize to you as well. After your injury I figured that was …

No, sad Oregon fan, you are not alone. If you watched any games this past weekend in college football, you know just how crazy it was. It started with us, No. 2 Oregon, being upset by Arizona.

To get this out of the way now … I have lost my place as No. 1. It was a great run while it lasted, but for now I have been banished to (I hate to even speak it out loud) fifth place. I didn’t have a bad week necessarily; I finished with 178 points, which was actually my third-highest scoring …
