2015 Preview: Picking the Big 12

OK, let’s put our cards on the table. I don’t hate the Big 12, I just hate its nonconference scheduling. I don’t think the Big 12 needs to expand to survive. In fact, I think it manages just fine with 10 members (well, as long as those 9 get along with Texas). I don’t think the Big 12 should have been involved in the College Football Playoff last season, but…


State of Ohio trumps preseason football predictions

Things are looking pretty solid in the state of Ohio this fall. Ohio State is coming off a national championship and is expected to once again be among the leaders in the race to the College Football Playoff this season. The Buckeyes return a stacked roster and should be favored in every game they play this fall. The Buckeyes have already been handed a preseason No. 1 ranking by the…

2015 Preview: Picking the ACC

The ACC is starting to gain some confidence as a conference based on success in recent seasons. Florida State won a BCS title and Clemson defeated Ohio State in the Orange Bowl two postseasons ago. Last year the Seminoles were invited to the College Football Playoff and Georgia Tech topped the SEC’s Cinderella team from Mississippi State in the Orange Bowl, and Clemson smacked Oklahoma up and down the field in…

Power ranking Appalachian State’s 21 (yes, 21) new uniform combinations

Appalachian State is entering year two as an FBS program in the Sun Belt Conference, and they will have plenty of uniform combinations to choose from this fall. Appalachian State unveiled their updated look for 2015, and it features a whopping 21 combinations with three different helmets, three different jerseys and two different pants. Appalachian State is adding a gold jersey to their look this season, but I’ll just call…


2015 Preview: Picking the Mountain West Conference

Boise State has been known to be one of the top little engines that could in college football, and this season should be no different. In fact, this little blue engine could have enough steam to make for some heated conversations later in the season if things start off well for the Broncos. Considering the strength of the Mountain West Conference as a whole compared to other Group of Five…


Why I applaud Braxton Miller’s refreshing dedication to Ohio State Buckeyes

Players should not lose starting jobs to injury, but sometimes there are exceptions. Braxton Miller’s story at Ohio State has gone off script in the past year, but he is determined to write a positive final chapter any way he can. Ohio State will open the 2015 season in defense of a national championship for the first time since 2003, and now we know Braxton Miller will not be the…

Podcast: An early preview of Pac-12 Media Days with Kyle Kensing

Oregon still team to beat, but is USC moving up? We are still in the midst of SEC Media Day Days Week, but now is as good a time as any to start looking a little ahead and catching up with the Pac-12. The Pac-12 media days are still a couple of weeks away at this point, overlapping with Big Ten media days this year, but the conference is full…

Podcast: Mid-summer prep for college football

The Fourth of July is over. The college football preview magazines are making the rounds. SEC media days begin next week. Without trying to rush you through your summer, college football is coming, and it is coming so quickly that Nick Saban may complain and want to slow things down a little. A good old friend of the No 2-Minute Warning Podcast returns to talk some college football. Brandan Cavanaugh of…


Q&A: The state of BYU football in 2015, with Mitch Harper

BYU football has always been intriguing to me. The program has a unique identity in the world of college football, as well as a rich history that often gets overlooked. During the conference realignment phase of a few years ago, BYU was left out of the power conference shakeup that saw in-state and Holy War rival receive an invite to the Pac-12. BYU, with no such invitation, opted to pursue…
