I'll start it off as we actually have a CFB game here in Dublin this week. The College Football Classic will see Nebraska play Northwestern at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday. They've started to arrive and tens of thousands of fans from the US have been flying in.

The players were at the stadium today.

How are the Tide looking for the season?
We look good on paper so far. We lost a few in the draft so am anxious/excited to see the new players line up and make their mark. We still have Young at QB so that's a plus.

MSU has a monster O line this year. Expect them to run over teams.

That said, after the starting 5 there is little so they need to stay healthy.

College ball has really grown on me the past few years. I like the intense loyalty the fans have to their teams and the way they sell out these huge 100,000+ stadiums with ease. It reminds me of GAA sports here, it’s amateur and community based and generates intense fandom and above all, fun. The fans really enjoy themselves and the drinks flow freely!

Indeed. And that former Pat, what's his name from the big house, arrived ready to face the crowds.

BTW, drinks still flow. but not freely.
