Texas dives for redemption against Irish

There was a shootout on the field in Austin, Texas Sunday night and Oklahoma wasn’t one of the participants.  But the pageantry and sense of pride was in the air for the Texas Longhorns, who were looking to avenge an embarrassing loss to Notre Dame from last season. Both coaches were unsure earlier in the week who would start at... Read More

Looking back at Week One

It’s just week one.  We tend to jump to conclusions very quickly, leading to a bunch of knee jerk reactions.  We have to remember that it is just the first week of action and unlike the old system of the BCS, early losses don’t make or break a season in the College Football Playoff Committee’s eyes.  It’s the whole body...

Lambeau spirit leads to Badgers stunning upset

Whoever says confidence and home field advantage wasn’t important has never been to Wisconsin.  There are a few places that take certain sports very seriously; Kentucky and Indiana love their basketball, Texas more of a football state.  Put Wisconsin and “Title Town” Green Bay up there with the love of football and the whole state is in on it.  Don’t...

Crimson Tide Roll to another Championship

Last night was a fitting end to a wacky college football season.  In a bowl season where the supposedly “quality”  bowl games ended up being blowouts, the two best teams in the country gave the nation a game to remember in the National Championship. You didn’t know who would pull out the win.  The game was being hyped like the... Read More

Clemson or Alabama, who’s leaving a champion?

Since the College Football Playoff initial rankings first aired on November third, Clemson and Alabama seemed to be on a collision course to meet for the National Championship.  They’ve made it come to fruition through an inspired and unrelenting focus, moved by two different motivations. The Clemson Tigers are good, fast, quick striking and feeling quite disrespected.  The underdog card is the... Read More

Who Will Take Home the Heisman?

Much like the College Football Playoffs this year’s Heisman race has been like the Kentucky Derby, where the most consistent player would emerge as one of the finalists.  Leonard Fournette and Trevon Boykin were clear favorites near midseason, but unproductive performances and injuries turned things around and opened up the door for others that were a bit more consistent.

Well this year, both are being discussed as the football program is vying for an ACC championship this Saturday against top-ranked Clemson. Even with a victory,... Read More

My Top 4 Rankings for this week

It is possible that the Big 12 could be shutout of the Top 4 spots this season in the rankings, not because the conference doesn’t have a Championship game, but because the top teams beat up on each other.  Oklahoma has been the most consistent of the Top 4 teams in the Big 12 (Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State)....
