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, ...

Indiana At Wisconsin: Not In The Face!

Friday, October 14th, 2011

In 2010, the Hoosiers' road trip to Madison ended in an 83-20 beating of historical proportions. This is the game most who follow Indiana football (all five of us!) point to as the reason Bill Lynch was fired at season's end, despite beating rival Purdue in overtime. I maintain it ...

Auburn Spent $260,000 To Prove It Didn’t Spend $180,000 On Cam Newton

The perfect foil for Florida State's decline is Wake Forest. The once-awesomely talented and well-coached Seminoles now lose randomly to ACC teams that were well beneath them even as recently as 2005.

Week 5 College Football Roundup: Clemson FTW!

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" -From "Jabberwocky" by Lewis Carroll When I was an undergrad at Indiana, the Hoosiers beat Oregon in Eugene while being outgained nearly four to one in yardage and only converting ...
