LSU vs. Florida: Fun with statistics from the (second) worst game ever

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

  Back in 2007, the UCLA Bruins and Oregon Ducks played what I posited at the time was the worst game ever. Many other stinkers have been played in the five years since, but Saturday's tilt between the seventh-ranked South Carolina Gamecocks and the second-ranked Florida Gators may have stolen the ...

Ohio State: Urban Meyer calls out the defense

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Being banned from postseason play, losing scholarships, and being under NCAA investigation is bad for any football program. Getting a renowned coach to fix the program and going undefeated halfway into his first season are good things. It would follow that things are good (or as good as they can be) ...

Auburn Tigers: Gene Chizik has to be on his way out, right?

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

Gene Chizik is probably longing for Wednesday right about now. Before his Auburn Tigers went out and got smoked by Ole Miss 41-20 Saturday, before the Rebels' 16-game conference losing streak was snapped, and before his record since winning the national championship slipped to 9-10, he was still on the ...

Georgia Tech: Al Groh finally out as defensive coordinator

The Al Groh experiment at Georgia Tech has failed. Groh has been fired as defensive coordinator following Tech's loss to Clemson in which it surrendered over 600 yards for the second time in three games. The former Virginia coach was brought in to run the 3-4 system and create a more ...

Indiana Hoosiers: Kevin Wilson receives vote of confidence, will probably be fired

Friday, October 5th, 2012

The Indiana Hoosiers are 2-2 heading into Saturday's showdown with Michigan State. Ha, showdown. More like complete destruction by a usually punchless Spartan offense. Expect running back Le'Veon Bell to have a nice day Saturday. However, if quarterback Tre Roberson hadn't broken his leg/ankle/lower body against UMass in week two, there ...

Oklahoma Sooners: Should Landry Jones be benched?

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

After the Oklahoma Sooners' 24-19 defeat to Kansas State on Saturday, I got to briefly revel in the awesomeness that is Collin Klein before finding myself in the position of defending OU quarterback Landry Jones. Midwest Sports Fans' Jerod Morris took himself a road trip to Norman to watch the ...

Penn State: Mark Emmert can’t seem to stop pointing out his own hypocrisy

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

NCAA President Mark Emmert said recently that he hopes he will never have to punish another school in the manner he punished Penn State. Some may think this means he doesn't want to ever be as harsh again, but what he was referring to was the unprecedented powers granted to ...
