College football Week 1 primer
Finally, football is back.
Revel in that for a minute (we'll pause while you gather your thoughts), then think about how not only is football back but that the first weekend has some great games.
There is some drama for the Georgia-Oklahoma State tilt as well. According to a UGASports.com story, it appears Bulldogs QB Joe Cox has been suffering from the flu. He is expected to play, but his health could be a concern.
