1. Kenny Football One of the most anticipated debuts for the start of this season was the debut of the new Aggie quarterback, Kenny Hill. And boy did he come out slinging. The poised red-shirt sophomore led the Aggies to an outstanding 52-28 victory against the South Carolina Gamecocks. He had 3 touchdowns and completed 44 passes for a total of 511 yds., breaking Johnny Manziel’s single-game passing school record...he broke a school record, the record of a Texas A&M LEGEND, in his debut night as starting quarterback. Wow. If you don’t think this guy is going to rise up in the CFB world…you’re just wrong.
2. National Champions? The Florida State Seminoles, winners of the very last BCS National Championship, were expected to put on quite a show against Oklahoma State but didn’t exactly succeed. The Noles did prevail in the end with a 37-31 win but did six points seriously separate the reining national champs and the unranked Cowboys? We get it, it’s hard to live up to the standards after winning a national title, there’s a lot of pressure and I’ll give them that. But Jimbo, Jameis, and the rest of the Seminoles up in Tally better get it together, especially when they have teams like Clemson, Louisville (an away game), and Notre Dame coming their way.
3. Can’t Live Up to Labor Day Of course, being from Miami and a huge Canes fan, I have to address the performance they gave Monday night, a 31-13 loss against the Louisville Cardinals. I could blame the true freshman starting quarterback, Brad Kaaya but I personally don't think he he holds ALL the fault. Kaaya went 17 for 29, throwing for 174 yds. and had one touchdown pass. He did threw two picks and a lateral but hey, he's a true freshman...he can practically still taste his high school lunch. What surprised me was the lack of help he got from the offensive line. They totally failed in giving Kayya protection, he was under pressure way too much and did not have enough time to make good, smart plays. The o-line also needed to open up lanes for the running backs, such as Duke Johnson, who didn't have too much of an effect on the game since he was basically running into linemen the whole game. If the offensive line doesn't do their job this season, it's going to be a long painful one
