New coaches having immediate impact at Michigan, Florida

Jim Harbaugh
October 5, 2015

The rest of the 2015 season may end up showing that programs like Michigan and Florida still have some work to do before being thought of as a legitimate conference or playoff contender, but one weekend into October has helped demonstrate that new coaches are having quite the impact on the resuscitation of their respective programs. Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh and Florida’s Jim McElwain have breathed new life into their programs…


2015 Preview: Picking the ACC

Deshaun Watson
August 3, 2015

The ACC is starting to gain some confidence as a conference based on success in recent seasons. Florida State won a BCS title and Clemson defeated Ohio State in the Orange Bowl two postseasons ago. Last year the Seminoles were invited to the College Football Playoff and Georgia Tech topped the SEC’s Cinderella team from Mississippi State in the Orange Bowl, and Clemson smacked Oklahoma up and down the field in…


Picking the NIT using football logic

March 16, 2015

Earlier I went through the entire NCAA men’s basketball tournament and picked each game based off which school I felt would win in football. People seemed to like it, and I even had one suggestion to do the same for the NIT. So I did the same with the NIT. The NIT is set up differently than the NCAA Tournament with no geographically designated regions. Instead, we have a 32-team…

October 31, 2014

Everything fell into place for me last week. For the first time all season, I went a perfect 6-0 in my college football picks. To top things off, I also took home the top spot in the NFL football pool I participate in thanks to Washington knocking off the Dallas Cowboys Monday night. Can I keep this newly developed hot streak going? Lets’ find out. I will admit some of…


Episode 147 – Jameis Winston suspended and a Week 4 Preview

Jameis Winston
September 18, 2014

Is Florida State really sending Heisman Trophy winning, national champion quarterback Jameis Winston a message by suspending him for the first half of this weekend’s home game against Clemson? Is there a chance Winston’s absence from the first half against the Tigers will ultimately have an impact? I have gone on record suggesting Florida State should be able to manage to get by with Sean Maguire under center, because I…


Wife knows best: Week 2 college football picks

Tyler Boyd, Pitt WR
September 4, 2014

Much to my chagrin, my wife was more accurate in predicting straight-up winners in our assortment of games last weekend. In fact, my perfect wife was perfect with her picks. It all came down to Sunday night’s Tennessee home game against Utah State. My wishful thinking in Chuckie Keeton scoring a signature victory against the Vols was doomed early on and ultimately cost me. Here’s a quick recap from last week….

The Pittsburgh Panthers were once considered among the elite programs in college football, but the glory days enjoyed under the reign of Johnny Majors and Jackie Sherrill are more and more becoming distant memories for fans of the Panthers. Pittsburgh finished the year in the top 15 of the AP poll seven out of eight seasons between 1975 and 1982, winning a national title along the way. Since 1984 though Pitt…

Another day means another potentially early look at a new football uniform for 2014. After getting a chance to lay eyes on the two new helmets for South Florida for the upcoming season, we get a look at what could be a new gold uniform for Pittsburgh. @PhilHecken looks like Pitt will have gold jerseys next year — Jake Smith (@PghJake101) January 25, 2014 In the background of that…
