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…

September 27, 2015

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. Fournette has the nation’s top rushing average with 210.33 yards per game in three games. That is about 42 yards…

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…

November 5, 2014

Before the college football season kicked off, one weekend most college football fans from around the country had circled was this weekend. With the College Football Playoff race on from coast to coast, November 8 raises the stakes for championship contenders and could set down the pretenders. Going into the season, this figured to be a huge weekend of college football. It still is, although perhaps not as most expected…
