Overreaction Monday: Finding Normalcy in College Football’s Abnormal

I know we just wrapped up what was technically week four of the 2020 college football season, but this past weekend was the one that finally flicked the switch to the assembly line on which the sport lives.

In its first game of the year, the reigning national champion lost to an eccentric new coach in Mississippi. Another eccentric new coach in Mississippi did... something. Oklahoma lost to Kansas State (again). Florida State got shitstomped by another team in Florida, and Pittsburgh is somehow 3-0.

These things typically wouldn’t warrant a second look even in the most normal of circumstances.
