2015 Preview: Picking the Mountain West Conference

July 28, 2015

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…

No2MinuteWarning.com Top 25, Week 14

November 25, 2013

If there was one thing we learned this past weekend in college football, it was the way to knock down teams based on high-flying offenses is to punch them in the mouth to take them out of their element. On Saturday both Oregon and Baylor saw their super offenses crippled by kryptonite styles by Arizona and Oklahoma State, respectively. The Ducks were ambushed by Arizona in the dessert and never…

November 19, 2013

We are coming down the home stretch of the college football season. Alabama and Florida State remain on top of my rankings this week, but Ohio State stands firm in my third place slot just itching to wiggle in to the top two. My preseason prediction of Alabama-Ohio State in the BCS championship is still in play, and I still say the story-lines and hype for an Alabama-Ohio State BCS…

November 5, 2013

So it has been a while since I did much on this website. For that, I apologize. As you hopefully know by now I have been pretty busy managing Crystal Ball Run and contributing to College Football Talk this football season, which has left this site a little bit on the back-burner. Let’s fix that today, shall we? And what better way to do it than by returning to posting…


No2MinuteWarning.com Top 25, Week 6

September 30, 2013

This week sees some shuffling in my top 25. Two teams in my top 25 last week took a hit on the road this weekend, with LSU losing to Georgia and Oklahoma State getting stung by West Virginia. As a result, there was plenty of movement in my poll this week with teams moving up. I also had some teams drop out after a loss this weekend, which leaves some…

Fresno State
September 27, 2013

So this week I totally left my updates on this site on the back burner and I never submitted my top 25 ballot to the #SMCTop25. But before we get in to the upcoming weekend of college football action I feel it is important to share my top 25 poll for the week, which accounts for my thinking prior to Thursday night”s action. Not to much changed in my poll….


Fresno State also adding a white helmet in 2013

Fresno Sate is adding a white helmet to their 2013 uniform line-up, it seems.
January 28, 2013

Next up in the white helmet craze is Fresno State. In a design move that appears to fall in line with the thinking of Texas Tech and Nevada, Fresno State will be showing off a white helmet as an alternate look in 2013. Have a look… But wait, there’s more to the potential 2013 Fresno State uniform line-up… Like this? Why not share it?ShareRedditFancredStumbleUponFacebook

Robinson finished with 308 yards, a school record at the time that ranks fourth currently. The Huskies defeated the Bulldogs, 73-18, setting…


Podcast Episode 051: BYU to the Big East?

Brett Hein from The Upset Blog You want a pairing that jumped out of nowhere in the last 24 hours? Try BYU and the Big East on for size. Deep Shades of Blue, which I am told tends to have a decent level of credibility behind it (honestly this is the first time I have checked the site out), posted a good amount of information about future BYU scheduling, which…
