Kiffin Versus The Coaches’ Poll: Why It’s Happening At All

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

I have a few theories as to why Lane Kiffin would get himself into this easily avoidable kerfuffle about the USA Today Coaches' Poll. Kiffin somehow managed to say he wouldn't vote for his own team to be number one in the initial poll, voted for them anyway, got called out by ...

Don’t Do It, Boise!

Friday, October 14th, 2011

The Big East was already a crap football conference before the 2011 season even began. Then Pittsburgh and Syracuse bailed for the ACC, and TCU decided they would rather stay closer to home in the Big XII than move into the Big East in 2012. I didn't know it was possible, ...

Week Four College Football Roundup: Who’s No. 1?

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Oklahoma and LSU both won on Saturday night, Oklahoma is 3-0, LSU is 4-0 and now both can say they've been No. 1 in the polls this season. As a reward for beating three ranked teams in four games, the Tigers get to be No. 1 in the AP's poll ...

Your Conference Re-Alignment Update For 9/22

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

I swear this is the last one of these for the week. I'm writing some game previews for Thursday and my picks come out Friday, so to heck with this...after today. Missouri, you ignorant sluts The SEC, Missouri? Really? They must really want to be LSU or Alabama's girlfriend and hold onto ...

BCS National Championship Preview

Monday, January 10th, 2011

(2) Oregon (12-0) vs. (1) Auburn (13-0) (-3) Two Heisman finalists, two teams from the two best conferences in college football, and yet...and yet this feels hollow somehow. Something's missing. Sure, TCU went 13-0 and were impressive in beating Wisconsin, but without Boise State here it's just not the same. The most ...

BCS Bowl Preview: Sugar Bowl

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

(6) Ohio State (11-1) vs. (8) Arkansas (10-2) (+3.5) Whatever the NCAA's motives might have been for letting Terrelle Pryor, DeVier Posey and others play in the Sugar Bowl despite their suspensions, the immediate impact on the game is that virtually no one cares about the actual game anymore. Every angle for ...

BCS Bowl Preview: Orange Bowl

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

(4) Stanford (11-1) vs. (13) Virginia Tech (11-2) (+3.5) "Oxymoron" seems to be the word to describe this game. It's going to be a tight, nip-and-tuck, defensive affair but at the same time there will be big plays sprinkled in there by both teams. That doesn't make sense on the surface ...

BCS Bowl Preview: Fiesta Bowl

Friday, December 31st, 2010

Connecticut (8-4) vs. (7) Oklahoma (11-2) (-17) Nice little gift here for Oklahoma since their history in BCS games isn't so pretty. But wait, they were favored against West Virginia too! Yeah, that WVU team had Steve Slaton and Pat White. There's not one offensive skill player on UConn that would ...
