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 ACC

August 3, 2015

The ACC is starting to gain some confidence as a conference based on success in recent seasons. Florida State won a BCS title and Clemson defeated Ohio State in the Orange Bowl two postseasons ago. Last year the Seminoles were invited to the College Football Playoff and Georgia Tech topped the SEC’s Cinderella team from Mississippi State in the Orange Bowl, and Clemson smacked Oklahoma up and down the field in…


Who made my FWAA All-American ballot in 2014

November 25, 2014

The final weeks of the college football regular season are upon us, so that means awards season is about to hit full stride very soon. With that comes a number of ballots and nominations I am asked to submit. This year I have votes and/or nominations for the Football Writers Association All-American Team, the Lombardi Award, Ray Guy Award, Lou Groza Award, Nagurski Trophy and Outland Trophy. I also get…


Wife knows best: Week one college football picks

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…


There will be college football played this month

Welcome to the month of August. For the first time since January, we can say there will be college football played this month. This is a glorious thought. The first games of the season are still weeks away but now the media day circuit has come to a close, camps are opening up around the country and the momentum is carrying us toward the first kickoff of the season. We…


Louisville’s blackout uniforms have good history

Louisville will roll out an all-black uniform look for its first contest in the ACC in week one. The nationally televised ACC debut on Labor Day against the Miami Hurricanes will see Louisville wear the non-traditional uniform, complete with a previously leaked reflective-chrome helmet to match the color of the uniform itself. It is not personally to my liking and I think it makes Louisville look more like Cincinnati than…


Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater turns pro with nothing more to prove

Teddy Bridgewater
January 1, 2014

Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will skip his final year of eligibility and enter the NFL Draft. The university’s athletic department confirmed the decision with a press release Wednesday, following weeks and months of speculation about the playing future of the Cardinals quarterback. The decision may have been a difficult one for Bridgewater to finally make official, but it was one that was long expected to become reality at the end of this college…


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…


No2MinuteWarning.com Top 25, Week 13

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…

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…
