Technically there was - the old Tokamak at the Fusion Research Center was underground pretty much right under the front steps of ENS.  My father helped design the thing.  My parents pulled me out of school, in second grade maybe, to go watch part of the installation one day.  Fun stuff for a second grader to watch.  Apparently it's in China now.

Anyway, Texas doesn't need a reactor.  They've got Welch hall, which is infinitely more dangerous.

A&M has a fission reactor off of the main campus.  Some friends of mine were hanging around outside it drinking one night and got the bright idea to break into the airport next door.  They got one of the little luggage carrier cars started and were driving it out on the runways in the middle of the night.  FBI raided our dorm the next morning.  Glad I missed that.

Welch was where it was rumored to be!

Putting a reactor in Welch would've been an invitation to global nuclear catastrophe.  Place was constantly either on fire and/or being evacuated when I was in grad school.  I was never really sure if the Austin fire department actually refused to continue responding there, or just threatened to.

lmao, my uncle who worked at UT always advised me to give Welch a wide berth, now I know why.

UW has a lil research reactor and there was  kerfuffle a few years back when the news discovered that it wasn't secured at all and you could just, like, walk in and check it out.

Can't quite figure out who sucks more ass this year- UVa or VA Tech.  I'm guessing Tech, but both would lose to Liberty.

Jalon Daniels is a Heisman trophy candidate and probably a big thing stopping him is how historical awful Kansas football has been .  Not sure if he is even top 5 now.

Not sure if this is more a slight on Michigan but this is probably Maryland's best top-tier road game since being in Big 10.   Especially after that first 2 plays.

Maryland definitely hung around and played tougher than I think people expected.

Locksley is doing a good job there.

But Blake Corum is having a hell of a day.

Auburn/Mizzu is the 2022 version of the infamous Auburn/Mississippi State 3-2 game. 2nd half has been a stunning display of offensive ineptitude.

No one seems to want to win.

I feel like this Miami loss should also be a transitive loss for Texas A&M, when you consider how the Blue Raiders are torching the Miami defense and the Aggies made them look like the Iron Curtain.

Waiting on my scores app to refresh the PBP on USC/Oregon State like I’m waiting on the radio announcer to read wire reports of a Jack Dempsey fight a hundred fucking years ago.

The Sneak Good Game of the Week That No One Will Be Able To Watch:

USC at Oregon State

Legit shocked that this was relegated to the PAC-12 Network. The Beavs are good this year, and road trips to Corvallis have long been a trap game for the Trojans. This is USC’s first real test of the season, and I wouldn’t be at all shocked if Oregon State is competitive with them or maybe even steals the upset.

*taps the sign*

This reminds me of the particle accelerator/collider that Notre Dame has on campus/underground.
