Which one-loss team has the best overall body of work? It’s now Michigan State

Michigan State beats Ohio State 2015
November 23, 2015

Michigan State is one win away from clinching the Big Ten East, a division some felt was deserving of preseason hype as the best division in college football. As it turns out, that may be true, at least in the top three spots. The Spartans are two wins away from winning a Big Ten championship, which would certainly make Michigan State a worthy candidate in the one-loss team list of…


SEC Weekly Report: Leonard Fournette overshadowing Georgia’s Nick Chubb

Leonard Fournette
October 2, 2015

Maybe the SEC is not quite as dominant as it once was in the college football landscape; but entering October, the conference has a handful of teams capable of putting together legitimate playoff runs, a pair of worthy Heisman Trophy candidates running the football and, of course, Alabama. Things are still as interesting as ever in the Southeastern Conference, and this week looks to serve up a healthy menu of…

Podcast: The Heisman Watch is officially on

Heading into the 2015 college football season my preseason Heisman Trophy pick was quarterback Trevone Boykin. There were some good reasons to believe he would at least be heading to New York City, including I believed TCU will go undefeated, he plays quarterback and hit his stride at the right time a season ago. Boykin may very well end up making the trip to New York City for the Heisman…


Podcast: Is the SEC really overrated? Barrett Sallee states his case

September 17, 2015

Yeah, we’re going there. Last season saw the Big Ten get ripped to shreds after Week 2 of the college football season. Are we really doing the same to the SEC after Auburn escaped a disaster at home against Jacksonville State, Arkansas lost to Toledo at home and Tennessee choked one away at home against Oklahoma? It sure seems that way, but are some people getting a little carried away…

Wife Knows Best: Week 1 College football picks

September 4, 2015

The ultimate domestic dispute resumes for Year 2 Last year I asked my wife to make picks for a handful of college football games each week. She obliged, and kicked my butt some weeks. Now she’s back and ready to get off on the right foot as we once again go head-to-head! Loser has to do the dishes (well, actually, I generally do those the most anyway). Here we go with…


2015 Preview: Picking the SEC

Alabama vs Tennessee
September 3, 2015

Oh, you thought I forgot about the SEC? think again. I was merely saving the best for last. The SEC did not have a postseason to remember last season, leaving the door open for SEC haters and critics to blast the conference. The truth is the SEC remains the strongest conference from top to bottom with the talent coming in (and leaving for the NFL) and the coaching is improving…

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….
