Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Wednesday, January 6, 2010 7 pm ET GMAC Bowl Central Michigan (11-2) vs. Troy (9-3) (+4) A nameless, side-by-side comparison of two quarterbacks.

Your FedEx Orange Bowl Preview

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Tuesday, January 5, 2010 8 pm ET FedEx Orange Bowl (10) Iowa (10-2) vs. (9) Georgia Tech (11-2) (-4) This might be the only bowl I watch from beginning to end. Seems counter intuitive, doesn't it? But my love of Georgia Tech's offense began way back at the beginning of the 2008 season and ...

Your Chickensh*t BCS Bowl Preview

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Monday, January 4, 2010 8 pm ET Tostitos Fiesta Bowl (6) Boise State (13-0) vs. (4) TCU (12-0) (-8) This is the biggest bullsh*t matchup since Nebraska got a shot at Miami at the end of the 2001 season even though they didn't even make the Big XII title game. And this game isn't ...

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

Friday, January 1, 2010 8:30 pm ET (3) Cincinnati (12-0) vs. (5) Florida (12-1) (-13) There's so much surrounding this game, it's easy to forget Cincinnati is undefeated too. Brian Kelly led his team out of basically nothing into a conference championship and undefeated season. Of course, the "haves" of the college football ...

Your Rose Bowl Game Presented By Citi Preview

Apropos of nothing, here is how I would have matched up the teams in the BCS, instead of the bullsh*t copout games they gave us: National Championship: Texas vs. Alabama (because I have to) Orange Bowl: Georgia Tech vs. TCU Fiesta Bowl: Cincinnati vs. Ohio State Sugar Bowl: Florida vs. Iowa Rose Bowl: Oregon vs. ...

Your New Year’s Day Bowls Preview

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

What's with the distinction between New Year's Day bowls and the ones that come before it? Ninety percent of those bowls are crap bowls to be playing in no matter what date they're played. Is there really more prestige for Northwestern or Auburn to be playing in the Outback Bowl ...

Your College Football Bowls Preview Part Seven

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

I wanted to take a moment to ask EA Sports to include flashback playbooks in next year's college football game. Not just formations, but entire playbooks. Like the classic Nebraska I-option playbook would be fantastic to run since the option is back in vogue and, well, the Huskers kind of kicked ...
