Podcast: Is the SEC really overrated? Barrett Sallee states his case

September 17, 2015

Yeah, we’re going there. Last season saw the Big Ten get ripped to shreds after Week 2 of the college football season. Are we really doing the same to the SEC after Auburn escaped a disaster at home against Jacksonville State, Arkansas lost to Toledo at home and Tennessee choked one away at home against Oklahoma? It sure seems that way, but are some people getting a little carried away…


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. 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…


2015 Preview: Picking the SEC

Alabama vs Tennessee
September 3, 2015

Oh, you thought I forgot about the SEC? think again. I was merely saving the best for last. The SEC did not have a postseason to remember last season, leaving the door open for SEC haters and critics to blast the conference. The truth is the SEC remains the strongest conference from top to bottom with the talent coming in (and leaving for the NFL) and the coaching is improving…


Podcast: Going on record with CFB Playoff picks and Week 1

September 2, 2015

Bill Bender of The Sporting News makes his first appearance It’s here. Can you feel it? Week 1 of the 2015 college football season is here (well, Montana-North Dakota State aside). We have finally arrived to a brand new season of college football, and it could not start soon enough. We will also be handsomely rewarded for our patience with quite a line-up of games to look forward to. On Thursday…


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…


The McGuire Metric vs. the College Football Playoff

December 8, 2014

This season I started keeping track of overall body of work based on the strength of schedule at the time games are played. Knowing some of the flaws in this method going in, I was interested to hear College Football Playoff selection committee chairman Jeff Long suggest within the last couple of weeks of the season that rankings based on the time games were played was a factor in the…


Wife Knows Best: Week 8 college football picks

2013 Pac-12 Championship Game
October 17, 2014

Another week of college football led to another dismal week of picking college football games for me. Not so much for my wife. We once again went head-to-head in picking games this weekend, and once again I was the one looking like I have no clue what I am talking about. We both whiffed on Arizona beating USC and Auburn beating Mississippi State. I also took the most embarrassing loss…


Can Week 7 possibly match the drama of Week 6?

October 8, 2014

No matter how much hype you bought into for the week six schedule in college football, nobody could have seen the week playing out with as much drama as it did. The state of Mississippi is suddenly the center of the college football universe. The Pac-12 saw its top three teams lose. The race in the Big 12 sees a new challenger approaching. Five teams in the AP top 10…


Wife Knows Best: Week 6 college football picks

October 2, 2014

As we move into the month of October, my wife’s college football picks have proven to be every bit as good as mine. I broke even at 3-3 last week. My wife, Stefanie, did better with a 4-2 record in Week 5. We both whiffed on Arizona State in a bad way, with UCLA thumping the Sun Devils in Tempe. We both successfully picked Georgia over Tennessee and Stanford topping…
