Syracuse FieldTurf 2015

A before and after comparison of Syracuse’s new FieldTurf

Syracuse recently installed a brand new playing surface at the Carrier Dome, which I touched on over on College Football Talk a while back. The new playing surface is a brand new FieldTurf that is supposed to look even nicer on TV, as well as in person. What I think is really cool is seeing the track and field markings uncovered from underneath the football field as the transformation is…


Happy (Washington State) Flag Day!

Today is Flag Day in the United States. While it is designed to honor the anniversary of the nation adopting the stars and stripes of red, white and blue as out nation’s banner, I prefer to use it as a sort of kickoff into college football preseason coverage for the upcoming season. I have the calendar all mapped out for upcoming preview right here on No 2-Minute Warning, and a…


Athlon Sports asks who has better shot at Top 25 finish; Michigan or Nebraska?

I love this time of year. The seasons are transitioning from spring to summer, and that means we continue to get closer and closer to the start of the college football season. It also means I am starting to get reacquainted with some college football friends in the media and blogosphere.

Uniform Updates: Pitt getting new look in 2016, Syracuse bringing No. 44 back

Pitt and Syracuse generated some buzz with uniform news and teases this week. Let the outrage begin. I have been busy these past couple of weeks packing up the apartment and moving into a new house and setting up the brand new home office, but I was not so busy that a pair of uniform news items caught my attention. When I saw new Pittsburgh head coach Pat Narduzzi was…

With wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants, and previously of LSU, being named the cover athlete for Madden NFL 16, the annual NFL video game published by EA Sports, the SEC now has four all-time cover athletes…

Bobby Bowden says SEC was too difficult for FSU and national title hopes

Oh, you thought Bobby Bowden‘s quotes about Jameis Winston (he thinks FSU fans would say Winston was an embarrassment to the university) were entertaining? Well how about this other nugget that was shared during a radio interview yesterday. When asked about Florida State’s old decision to not join the SEC in the 1990s, Bowden suggested it would have been too difficult for Florida State to win a national championship in the…

Colorado adds a touch of silver to 2015 uniform selections

The word was Colorado was preparing to update their football uniforms for 2015, and Friday the Buffs gave the world a look at their new uniform selections. For the most part, they are pretty darn slick. Have a look at the full arsenal, highlighted by four different helmets to choose from (including a silver helmet)… Strength for a stampede. The speed to start one. The @RunRalphieRun Nike Mach Speed uniform:…

UConn road white uniform (2015)

UConn updates its look for 2015

UConn took a gamble with their non-traditional approach to a uniform upgrade a couple of years ago. Now, as the program enters its second season under new head coach Bob Diaco, the Huskies have updated their look to perhaps be taken a bit more seriously. Gone is the husky staring right at you across the line of scrimmage as the Huskies now go with a more familiar side logo on…
