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…


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…


Diving in to the world of concept helmets

Oklahoma concept helmet design
February 19, 2015

I try to avoid getting caught up in the idea of concept uniforms and concept helmet designs, but I recently stumbled across the designs put together by Dylan Young, of Deeyung Entertainment. While most of the designs seem to follow a similar formula (take the team’s logo, blow it up and plaster it on the side of a helmet), I was intrigued by a few of the designs I saw….


Wife Knows Best: Week 13 College Football Picks

November 21, 2014

After a poor showing in Week 11, I bounced back with a perfect Week 12 slate. It could not have come at a better time as it helped me to even the weekly head-to-head score as well. We both took wins with Ohio State, Alabama and Florida State taking care of business. This guaranteed a .500 week at worst for my wife, but Clemson, Nebraska and Auburn did Stef no…


Episode 149 – Autograph Signings and Week 8 Preview

Jameis Winston
October 16, 2014

If you thought once we got to the college football season that off-field drama would disappear, think again. Here we are, midway through the regular season for most schools and we are talking about Jameis Winston and Todd Gurley for non-football reasons. Winston continues to have the alleged sexual assault looming over him in some capacity and now his eligibility as a student at Florida State is at risk, and…


Wife Knows Best: Week 5 college football picks

Tennessee vs. Georgia
September 25, 2014

With four weeks in the books I hold a narrow lead over my wife when it comes to picking college football games. Last week was a rough oneĀ for me. I went with the upset pick with Kansas State at home against Auburn, which cost me. Stef picked Auburn and picked up an early lead heading into the weekend. We both whiffed on Missouri at home against Indiana and LSU at…

My wife loves college football. Well, maybe she doesn’t love it, but she does get excited for the season when she hears the ESPN college football theme and she will get excited to watch some of the best games of the season. How did I get so lucky? She also has a pretty good track record with her sports predictions. She successfully predicted a Super Bowl match-up between the New…


Getting the Southwest Conference back together

June 7, 2014

While working on Friday night manning the College Football Talk virtual news desk, things got slow. This usually happens on a Friday evening in the offseason, but even when things are moving slowly it is my responsibility to seek out news, commentary or anything else that might be worth sharing. That often leads me to checking the Reddit college football board, where I am sure many of my counterparts at…


An Arkansas music video with no pig-nose lady

I’m still waiting to see what pop culture song becomes the trendy pick for quick viral videos created by various schools in the same way we say Gangam Style and the Harlem Shake capture us in the past. Perhaps those videos are coming in due time, but for now we’re already keeping occupied with various music videos this week. Between the Butch Jones Song and the awesome Coach T Bus…
