Georgia and Mark Richt go separate ways; Miami should be all in on Richt

Mark Richt
November 30, 2015

The end of the Mark Richt era in Athens finally came on Sunday. After years of perhaps misguided hot seat talk, the long drought without an SEC title, never mind a national championship game appearance, finally forced Georgia and Richt to go their separate ways. While Georgia will be a highly attractive job on the market, perhaps the best job not located in Los Angeles, Richt may quickly find a…

The imminent end of the Les Miles era at LSU may have been greatly exaggerated

Les Miles
November 29, 2015

  In the past week, LSU head coach Les Miles went from essentially fired to firmly in place to coach LSU in 2016. It was quite a wild spin on the coaching carousel rumor mill, and it was one that perplexed from the start. It started with rumblings out of Louisiana and really took center stage when Yahoo and ESPN jumped head first into the madness. Y Sources: LSU "prepared"…

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…

After playing run-heavy Army yesterday, Eastern Michigan has now allowed a nation-worst 1,493 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns through just four games. Brace yourselves Eastern Michigan, because this week that swiss cheese run defense heads to Baton Rouge to take on the Heisman Trophy front-runner, Leonard Fournette of LSU.

Podcast: The Heisman Watch is officially on

Leonard Fournette
September 24, 2015

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…

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…

Odell Beckham Jr.
May 14, 2015

There may no longer be an NCAA Football video game produced by EA Sports, but that does not mean the SEC cannot find one more thing to brag about. With wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants, and previously of LSU, being named the cover athlete for Madden NFL 16, the annual NFL video game published by EA Sports, the SEC now has four all-time cover athletes…

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…
