Thursday and Friday Night Lights: BN Open CFB Thread, 49ers, and Coach

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Open thread tracking college football action for Thursday and Friday nights.

We have another bye week as our players and coaches recuperate from an emotional start and prepare for their Pac-12 opener. You can read all of our notes and see videos as UCLA prepares for it’s game at Utah here.

In these last couple of weeks we have witnessed and discussed the values that are near and dear to UCLA. The values that Coach Mora, Nebraska, and our team have demonstrated with such grace, wisdom, and care. I found a Ted Talk with Coach Wooden that I think articulates what makes us proud to be Bruins. In it Coach discusses the role of teacher and coach and the difference between winning and succeeding and so many other things. It always amazes me how sharp his mind remained throughout his life and I love listening to him pull out poems and prose effortlessly and weave them seamlessly into his discussions. I hope you will enjoy it.

I also recommend that people take a moment to vote for Coach Mora for Coach of the Year as he has once again showed us what the word Coach means. You can vote here each day.

As we wait for our game next Thursday, this Thursday and Friday there are some games that people might enjoy watching and discussing. Here's your schedule:

Thursday:

  • Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech; ESPN; 4:30 PST
  • Iowa State at Tulsa; Fox Sports 1; 4:30 PST

Friday:

  • Utah State at San Jose State; ESPN; 6 pm PST
  • Middle Tennessee at Brigham Young; ESPNU; 6 pm PST

I know many of you will be watching the San Francisco 49ers take on St. Louis as well. This game kicks off at 5:25 PST on the NFL network.

This is your Thursday and Friday football open thread. Enjoy!
