Derrick Henry vs. Michigan State
January 6, 2016

The 2015 season has just one game remaining to play with Clemson and Alabama squaring off for this year’s College Football Playoff National Championship.

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…

July 28, 2015

Boise State has been known to be one of the top little engines that could in college football, and this season should be no different. In fact, this little blue engine could have enough steam to make for some heated conversations later in the season if things start off well for the Broncos.

Oregon still team to beat, but is USC moving up? We are still in the midst of SEC Media Day Days Week, but now is as good a time as any to start looking a little ahead and catching up with the Pac-12.

If everything goes according to plan, the deregulation of conference championships could provide some nice benefits to the ACC and the Big 12. It could also really amp up the Group of Five conversation as well.

Why is college football in a rush to change championship methods?

Boise State
May 4, 2015

The ACC and Big 12 have a desire to change the way conference championships can be determined, but is it wise for all conferences to hop on board?

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…
