2015 Preview: Picking the Big Ten

Ezekiel Elliott
August 23, 2015

Is the Big Ten on the upswing? It would be hard to say otherwise given how last season ended for the conference and what has transpired since. Ohio State won the national championship after sneaking in to the College Football Playoff as the No. 4 seed, knocking off top seed and SEC champion Alabama and No. 2 seed and Pac-12 champion Oregon (who in the process took out the ACC…

Mailbag Wisconsin
January 29, 2015

It has been a while but with the offseason here I am looking forward to making the mailbag feature a much more regular part of the mix to help us get through this offseason together. I threw a couple of questions into a quick video, but please allow me to dig deeper into some thoughts and some additional questions as well. Want your question to be used in a future…


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…


A memo to college football captains: Respect the game

Maryland - PSU handshake
November 25, 2014

The following is a brief excerpt from a column originally posted on The Student Section. The honor of being named a team captain comes with a burden of responsibility to uphold the image of the team, and in college sports the university as a whole. Being named a team captain by your peers comes with great pride and is not to be taken for granted. Presenting the best your team…


Episode 148 – A mess in Michigan and Week 6 Preview

October 2, 2014

Ann Arbor, Michigan has been boiling for a while now, but things finally seemed to bubble over this past week. Betwen the mishandling of an injured Shane Morris and the bumbling chain of command and wandering line of communication within the football program and athletic department, things seem to have hit a new low for Michigan football. And this is a program that had a miserable three years under Rich…


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…


What If Joe Paterno’s East Coast Conference Plan Succeeded?

0Pitt-Penn State
September 19, 2013

As someone who grew up watching Penn State football, I unfortunately missed out on some of the long-standing regional rivalries of Penn State’s past. I caught on just as Penn State was preparing to move to the Big Ten, abandoning many of their regional rivalries in the process. With today’s news that Penn State and West Virginia have agreed to play a home-and-home series in 2023 and 2024 (plan accordingly)…

Maryland Terrapins latest to go Gangnam Style

The college football season may be winding down with the bowl games set to begin this season, and perhaps we will see these Gangnam Style videos start to go with it. However, until they do, we will continue to share them here. The Maryland Terrapins, what’s left of them anyway, are the latest to join the fun. Maryland cornerback Dexter McDougle had the help of a number of his teammates…

Wait for it, the Big 16 cannot be too far behind

Remember when the Big Ten changed their logo following the addition of Nebraska to the conference? The public response to the new logo was criticized by many but not nearly as much as the decision to rename the divisions Legends and Leaders. As it turns out, I am starting to suspect the Big Ten had a long-term plan for their new logo. Is it really a coincidence the Big Ten…
