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…

The latest attempt to reboot the Fantastic Four franchise is a bomb. So let’s fix it using new cast members from the world of college football. I have been on a bit of a superhero kick this summer at the movies. The second installment in The Avengers franchise finished on a high note and set the scene for what’s coming up in Marvel’s plans, and Ant-Man was a nice surprise….

It also means I am starting to get reacquainted with some college football friends in the media and blogosphere.

In week two of the 2014 college football season there were many willing to write off the entire Big Ten from the playoff conversation. Yeah.

Wisconsin topped Auburn in a wild overtime game that scored the highest…


Wife Knows Best: Week 13 College Football Picks

November 21, 2014

After a poor showing in Week 11, I bounced back with a perfect Week 12 slate. It could not have come at a better time as it helped me to even the weekly head-to-head score as well. We both took wins with Ohio State, Alabama and Florida State taking care of business. This guaranteed a .500 week at worst for my wife, but Clemson, Nebraska and Auburn did Stef no…
