College football Week 1 grades: Deion Sanders gets A+ for making haters look silly

Another season of college football is finally upon us, and for the third straight year, it is my pleasure to again bring you the highlights, lowlights, 

boneheaded decisions and the absolute silliness produced by the 133 teams fighting for the four College Football Playoff spots.

The same thing goes as far as grading from last season: High marks will be only for the spectacular, and failing grades have no chance of being reversed. 

Also, mean social posts will be ignored and emails to the inbox to complain will directly enter the trash folder.

So, join USA TODAY Sports on this ride that will end Jan. 8 at Houston's NRG Stadium in the national championship game.

Here is the Week 1 analysis of how fans, teams, players, and coaches fared: No shortage of salt here

Keeping this one short and sweet. Deion Sanders is not playing around with the media, especially after his nearly three-touchdown underdog Colorado team went to Fort Worth, Texas, and upset TCU. 

Check out this exchange with ESPN's Ed Werder following the Buffaloes' 45-42 win.

Colorado was considered, by yours truly, a team that could disappoint in 2023. It's only one game, but the crow for dinner is getting closer to reality, especially if the Buffaloes make a bowl game.

CVS receipt list of haters looking silly: A+ Don't press post Social media can be a good source of information, and sometimes a good source of comedy.

Sadly, most people running social media accounts who are trying to be funny don’t have a clear sense of history or seemingly don't have Google, for that matter. 

UCF played Kent State in its first game of the season on Thursday and it went as expected, with the Knights cruising to a 56-6 win.

During the game, UCF’s official football account on X, formerly Twitter, posted a picture of quarterback John Rhys Plumlee on the phone, with the caption, “SOMEONE CALL THE NATIONAL GUARD.”

The problem with the UCF post is that the Knights were playing Kent State, which was the site of an anti-war protest in 1970 

that saw the Ohio National Guard open fire on a crowd, killing four students. Nine others were wounded.

The post was deleted and the UCF administration issued an apology.
