The first Saturday of college football is here and I'm excited. From this nasty Arkansas hype video and slew of hilarious College GameDay signs to SB Nation ranking the confused SMU bros from Friday night and Ole Miss defensive end Robert Nkemdiche scoring on a 32-yard TD reception, it's already been a gorgeous weekend. Don't forget your comprehensive College Football Week 1 Viewing Guide. One unfortunate note came in the Clemson-Wofford game when Tigers receiver Mike Williams was carted off the field with a neck injury. We are sending a ton of thoughts and prayers his way.

Odds and Ends
Michigan high schooler returned punt for TD and it took 30 seconds ... Sam Dekker's girlfriend is not ugly ... Tony Zych just made his MLB debut and he's already broken a 105-year-old record ... The Warriors unveiled a practice facility championship banner (with names of every player) ... It's so sad watching Kansas students talk about Kansas football ... Watch Hannibal Buress convince a kid to say Mike Dunleavy is better than Michael Jordan ... Watch Blake Griffin answer some questions using only emoji flash cards ... The Mets and Scott Boras are at odds over Matt Harvey's innings limit ... The top five retired players that never made an All-Star team ... It’s puppies versus droids in this Force Friday clip.
We Love P.J. Fleck
From his formal gameday attire to his pregame speeches, Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck is a true gentleman:
