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…

April 5, 2015

Wisconsin’s national semifinal victory over previously unbeaten Kentucky sent the Badgers to Monday night’s NCAA men’s basketball championship game. The Big Ten champions will take on Duke, who earlier this season defeated the Badgers in Madison during the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. If Wisconsin can knock off the Blue Devils, it will be one more crowning achievement for the Big Ten in a year that has been very kind to the…


Picking the NCAA Basketball Tournament by who would win in football

Ohio State vs. Notre Dame
March 16, 2015

The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament has been set. For college football fans, this may be the only time some watch college basketball. That is largely the case for me, honestly. Sure, I’ll watch a few minutes here and there during the basketball season, but that mostly comes when I am working for College Football Talk and I am looking for some background noise. I have nothing against college basketball, I…


Kentucky sends 115 handwritten letters to QB recruit

I did not get any mail today. None. I was like Charlie Brown looking for one simple Valentine in the mailbox, with my voice echoing “Hello in there” to no avail. Drew Barker, a high school quarterback in Kentucky, got some mail today. In fact, he got a lot of it from the University of Kentucky. Kentucky sent Barker, a Class of 2014 Army All-American, 115 handwritten letters. 115 handwritten…

This day in college football history: Arkansas outlasts Kentucky in seven overtime game, 71-63

On this day in 2003, Kentucky and Arkansas could not have a game decided in four quarters. Heck, they could not decide a game in four overtimes! That’s right, Arkansas and Kentucky played a seven-overtime game, with the Razorbacks coming out on top by a final score of 71-63. The game tied an NCAA record for the most overtimes in a game, which was also played by Arkansas (2001 vs….

Kentucky players show off diving skills

August 15, 2012

Don’t look for these guys in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 Kentucky’s football players were treated to a day at the pool, and with a diving board ready to take a beating many players decided to try showing off their skills in hopes of perhaps joining Kentucky’s diving team in the offseason. Some players had some good motion in the air, even for big guys. Actually, that’s even more impressive….

Maryland Bracket: Where teams do not wear their right colors Somebody needs to have a talk with these two schools in the 2012 Uniform Madness bracket. Staying in the Maryland Bracket we have one team who violates the black-jersey rule and another who should re-think their uniform fashion. There is something you should keep in mind here as we work our way through the Uniform Madness. The selection committee is not a…

Behold the SEC North and South!

Once Texas A&M (and Missouri?) join the SEC, how will the divisions look? Getty Images.
October 5, 2011

Could southerners grasp the concept of being in “The North?” On Tuesday the University of Missouri Board of Curators voted unanimously to Chancellor Brady Deaton to actively pursue new conference alignment options. The move presumable means that Missouri will leave the Big 12, with speculation suggesting that the Tigers will join Texas A&M as the SEC expands to 14 members. “The Board of Curators delegates to Chancellor Deaton the authority to…
