Coastal Carolina is installing a "Teal Turf" for 2015.

Coastal Carolina installing a new teal turf

In the ranks of the Football Championship Subdivision, Coastal Carolina has been a program on the rise. Coming off a wildly successful, yet unfulfilling season on the field, the Chanticleers will have a new field to play on in 2015. Yes, it will be teal. I’m on board with this..

Will UNLV be wearing this red helmet in 2015?

UNLV rocking a scarlet helmet in 2015?

UNLV has a brand new head coach in place (Tony Sanchez) and the Rebels could have a new helmet as well. This scarlet helmet has surfaced and has generated some interest as the program looks to head in a new direction. If this is legit and not just a piece of recruiting material on display, it looks great and is a nice way of going back to some fo the…

Cardale Jones announced he is coming back for one more year at Ohio State.

Critics cannot have it both ways with Cardale Jones’ decision

On Thursday, three days after helping Ohio State win a national championship, Buckeyes quarterback Cardale Jones announced at a press conference in Cleveland he will return for one more year of school. Jones had become a hot topic among NFL Draft circles in the past few days, with many suggesting he would be wise to leave Ohio State for the NFL after one of the more unique three-start careers in…

Ohio State football players hold up the Big Ten logo following a Big Ten Championship Game victory over Wisconsin (2014).

Final McGuire Metric results: Buckeyes push Big Ten to the top

During the 2014 college football season I attempted to keep score of each team’s and each conference’s overall body of work by assigning a point value for each win. Each week teams and conferences had chances to add to their total, the intended use to be to assess which conference and which team did the most impressive work from start to finish. I call it the McGuire Metric, because a…

The lesson to learn from the 2014 season: Let the season breathe

Every season of college football has its own story. For as much as we hear about the various narratives in the game, it can sometimes be easy to forget that each season can tell its own story while straying from what we are led to believe is the script. In fact, there is no script in sports, and this year college football reminded many of that. Ohio State celebrated its…

Orgeon head coach Mark Helfrich and Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer shake hands during a joint press conference event for the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

My College Football Playoff National Championship Game Prediction

History will be made Monday night in Arlington, Texas when the first College Football Playoff crowns its national champion. Pac-12 champion Oregon and Big Ten champion Ohio State will play for the ultimate bragging rights, with the Ducks looking for their first national title and the Buckeyes working for their eighth. With a Heisman Trophy quarterback on one side and a national championship coach on the other sideline, this figures…

Ohio State running back Ezekial Ellito is joined by teammates to celebrate Sugar Bowl MVP honors following a win over Alabama in the 2015 Sugar Bowl.

Episode 159 – Big Ten Bounces Back

In week two of the 2014 college football season there were many willing to write off the entire Big Ten from the playoff conversation. Yeah. About that… Few conferences enjoyed the new year the way the Big Ten did. The conference went 3-1 on January 1, and all three victories were notable and not to be shrugged aside. Wisconsin topped Auburn in a wild overtime game that scored the highest…

North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz could help lead the Bison to college football history.

FCS Championship Game: North Dakota State going for history

On Monday night history will be made with the crowning of the first College Football Playoff national champion. While either Ohio State or Oregon will go down as a trivia answer in that respect, this weekend could see FCS juggernaut North Dakota State make some history of its own. The Bison take on Illinois State in the FCS National Championship Game and could win its fourth consecutive national championship. If…

Alabama's Sugar Bowl loss to Ohio State was a tough one for the SEC.

Episode 158 – A not so Happy New Year for the SEC?

I started to keep track of conference bowl records during the 2011-2012 bowl season, and the SEC has always been the top performer among the conferences. The SEC went 6-3 in bowl games that season, with an asterisk because I ended up counting a win for Alabama over LSU as a loss for LSU in the conference total. It was a bizarre situation that I just simply was not sure how…
