College Football Saturday Open Thread


Come inside and about the day in college football action. 

College Football Rootability Index, Week 8: You Might Win, But You're Gonna Bleed -
Friday's College Football Rootability Index returns to help you, the relatively uninvested fan, decide who to pull for in games where you have no established interest. The methods used to determine this are arbitrary; the outcomes are decidedly not.

Rob Rang: Without any further adieu, here are the five prospects, as well as the cable provider and time you can expect to see them.
