Re-casting Fantastic Four with college football’s mightiest

CFB Fantastic Four
August 11, 2015

The latest attempt to reboot the Fantastic Four franchise is a bomb. So let’s fix it using new cast members from the world of college football. I have been on a bit of a superhero kick this summer at the movies. The second installment in The Avengers franchise finished on a high note and set the scene for what’s coming up in Marvel’s plans, and Ant-Man was a nice surprise….


Listen to No 2-Minute Warning on Wildfire Radio

My First College Football Game: “Don’t get used to this”

Beaver Stadium 1991
August 29, 2014

The year was 1991 and I was just weeks into my new obsession; Super Nintendo. I had saved up my allowance, birthday and holiday money, as well as the couple bucks or spare change my grandparents would sneak my way when my parents were not looking any other time we saw them. I was addicted, I admit. I had been saving for a long time, ever since first reading about the successor…


Live blogging the 2014 college football season

2014 Live Blog Header
August 29, 2014

Plenty of websites covering college football make a habit of posting live blogs or open threads for individual games. I could do that if I wanted, but instead I am deciding to live blog the entire college football season. That’s right, this is going to be one season-long live blog for the 2014 college football season through my eyes. The plan is to go from the first game on the…


Penn Quakers think they are “Oregon of the Ivy League”

Penn Football Uniforms
August 25, 2014

Today I heard a phrase I am not sure I ever thought I would hear. “We’re like the Oregon of the Ivy League in a sense,” was the phrase used by Pennsylvania running backs coach Steven Downs in a video to promote Penn’s new football attire for the 2014 season. No, the Quakers are not going into full Oregon mode, but this is probably enough of a culture shock for the…


The best player in the Big Ten is…

Braxton Miller
August 25, 2014

I have made no secret just how much I think of Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller. For a couple of seasons now I have stood firm on my stance that Miller is the best player in the Big Ten… when healthy. When asked a few weeks ago to rank the top 15 players in the Big Ten for Athlon Sports, Miller was a lock to top my personal list. I submitted…


UTSA’s white helmet combines awesomeness of matte and chrome

I love matte helmets (and I cannot lie). I also dig chrome helmets in most circumstances. Few schools have been adventurous enough to try and combine the two trendy helmet styles, but UTSA proves why doing so can turn out to be something pretty great. The style of this new white helmet to be worn in 2014 is done in a matte finish and highlighted by an orange chrome face mask and…


It could be that kind of (good) year for Iowa

Brandon Scherff, James Ferentz
August 6, 2014

It seems every few years the Iowa Hawkeyes rise from seemingly nowhere in the Big Ten, when few are looking, and make a run in the conference. This year has just that feel as we creep closer to the start of the season. For much of the offseason I have decided the Big Ten is Ohio State’s to lose, with Michigan State giving the Buckeyes their most legitimate threat along…


There will be college football played this month

Tennessee Vols
August 1, 2014

Welcome to the month of August. For the first time since January, we can say there will be college football played this month. This is a glorious thought. The first games of the season are still weeks away but now the media day circuit has come to a close, camps are opening up around the country and the momentum is carrying us toward the first kickoff of the season. We…

Cincinnati’s has four Big East championship trophies in the trophy case, but this fall the Bearcats are expected to add the first American Athletic Conference championship trophy to the collection. A media poll has labeled Cincinnati as the preseason favorite to win the AAC in 2014. Defending conference champion Central Florida was picked to finish second in the conference. Cincinnati received 17 first-place votes out of 30 possible votes. UCF…
