Which one-loss team has the best overall body of work? It’s now Michigan State

Michigan State beats Ohio State 2015
November 23, 2015

Michigan State is one win away from clinching the Big Ten East, a division some felt was deserving of preseason hype as the best division in college football. As it turns out, that may be true, at least in the top three spots. The Spartans are two wins away from winning a Big Ten championship, which would certainly make Michigan State a worthy candidate in the one-loss team list of…

Wife Knows Best: Week 1 College football picks

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.

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…


5 college football stadiums ready to drop the puck for the NHL

Michigan Stadium and the 2014 NHL Winter Classic
March 10, 2015

Football in baseball stadiums, baseball in football stadiums and hockey in baseball and football stadiums. We seem to be in an age where one sport transplanting its game into an unnatural surrounding seems to be pretty trendy. Gimmicky, sure, but why can’t we have a little fun and take an opportunity to show off one sport in a setting that may not be all too familiar to fans of that…


Wife Knows Best: Week 11 College Football Picks

First, a quick update on what unfolded last weekend. Pittsburgh did me no favors in getting off to a good start…
