I don't think Auburn is "very good", the are good enough to pound weaklings, but good teams will push them around and their QB is mistake prone.  PSU appears to me to be at least "pretty good" and possibly very good.

He should have typed "NIU" and not "UNI."

Michigan is playing Northern Illinois University.
Also keep in mind that NIU just upset GT in week 1.  Watch out for those Huskies.

Edited, fixed.  Sorry for the confusion. 
I was confused. I thought UNI playing ISU and Michigan in the same year is pretty gutsy. But, Michigan now knows better than to risk another loss to FCS in 2021. Iowa keeps tempting fate, but had its loss to FCS NDSU a few years ago.

UNI and NIU played each other only once, in 1964, with NIU winning at home 14-9.

I took the multi-state professional ethics exam in 1983 at NIU. I think I drank whiskey at UNI. I cannot say for sure. It was decades ago.

Here is an interesting stat.

Kent State leads the country with 8 interceptions in 2 games.

Iowa is currently 2nd in the country with 6 interceptions in 2 games.

I think the odds of there being a few picks in the Iowa-Kent game are pretty good.

hope to see more of JJ McCarthy this week. The sooner he can get acclimated to the college game and take over the reigns at QB- the sooner Michigan might be able to make a jump as a program. Not knocking McNamara- just think the teams ceiling is much lower with him.

Usually when Pitt is on the ESPN+, the local ABC affiliate picks it up, and sticks the national ABC game on CW, or something. This week? Nope? Pitt-WMU is available on Bally Sports Detroit in Michigan, but you have to stream it, literally within the city of Pittsburgh, as ABC is showing MSU-Miami. Big yikes Pitt.

That is one of the reasons Pitt is not in the B1G.

Pittsburgh is Steelers city. They don't give two shits about Pitt football. Honestly, don't know if any cfb could work at a high level there. Kind of hard to compete with a cornerstone blue-chip NFL franchise that until Brady-Belichik transformed the Patriots- was probably THE pre-eminent franchise in NFL history.

They were very good, when Western PA was THE football hotbed in the 70s.  While it's still a solid talent pool, you certainly can't field a high end team based solely on Western PA kids.  Particularly when you have OSU and PSU a couple hours either direction.

You occasionally hear the "Pitt needs an on campus stadium" folks.  That's wrong.  Would that get a couple hundred (thousand?) more students to go?  Probably.  But that's not the big issue.  Oakland (the neighborhood where Pitt is) is a nightmare to access.  For the population at large, Heinz Field is far more accessible than an on campus stadium.  They need a smaller stadium for sure.  The only ACC schools with larger stadiums are Clemson and Florida State.  They seat 20,000 more than North Carolina, Maryland or Minnesota.

Not at all easy to get to Ryan Field, unless you're not tailgating and use the rail system to get there.

The cities with long term NFL franchises I think view CFB somewhat like places like Atlanta view the NFL.

That's cute.
