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…


Video: Eric LeGrand’s latest achievement unlocked

Eric LeGrand, Rutgers
April 22, 2015

It has been a few years since Eric LeGrand of Rutgers was carted off the field against Army and told he may never walk again, but that has not stopped him from doing everything he can to defy the odds. Yesterday LeGrand shared a video of himself leaning forward and sitting back in his wheelchair. For someone who was given at best a five percent chance of ever regaining neurological function,…

Jameis Winston
October 16, 2014

If you thought once we got to the college football season that off-field drama would disappear, think again. Here we are, midway through the regular season for most schools and we are talking about Jameis Winston and Todd Gurley for non-football reasons. Winston continues to have the alleged sexual assault looming over him in some capacity and now his eligibility as a student at Florida State is at risk, and…

Week two of the college football season did not result in some good predictions from me, or my lovely wife Stefanie. For one week though, I suppose I proved why I am the one writing about college football professionally in this relationship, but there was not much room for bragging rights last weekend. Here is a quick recap from last week. I jumped out to an early lead last week by…


Episode 146 – You’re in B1G trouble Mr. Delany

B1G trouble
September 10, 2014

It once looked so promising for the Big Ten. The addition of the conference’s own cable network, the Big Ten Network, was a true game-changer in terms of sports media coverage and it brought plenty of extra dollars to conference members. Ohio State was a perennial national title contender and Michigan was still a legitimate threat. The Big Ten was holding its own in bowl games and there was a time when…

Plenty of websites covering college football make a habit of posting live blogs or open threads for individual games. I could do that if I wanted, but instead I am deciding to live blog the entire college football season. That’s right, this is going to be one season-long live blog for the 2014 college football season through my eyes. The plan is to go from the first game on the…


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)…


2013 Great American Lobster Feast: Cincinnati claims conference-high 21 lobsters

2013 Great American Lobster Feast
July 29, 2013

Cincinnati was a bit of a wild card this year but the Bearcats managed to put away 21 lobsters between three players to take this year’s lobster crown at the annual American clambake the night before the formal conference media day. The Bearcats had three players for an average of seven lobsters per player, which also led the conference at the clambake. Remember, Cincinnati claimed just five lobsters in 2012…
