2015 Preview: Picking the Big 12

TCU tied for the top spot in the McGuire Ranking in 2014, but...
August 5, 2015

OK, let’s put our cards on the table. I don’t hate the Big 12, I just hate its nonconference scheduling. I don’t think the Big 12 needs to expand to survive. In fact, I think it manages just fine with 10 members (well, as long as those 9 get along with Texas). I don’t think the Big 12 should have been involved in the College Football Playoff last season, but…


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…


Wife Knows Best: Week 10 college football picks

Jamison Crowder
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…


Wife Knows Best: Week 9 college football picks

October 23, 2014

October is winding down, which means I am starting to run out of time to catch up to my wife in the college football picking game this season. I did have a better week last weekend, so I hope to carry that momentum over to Week 9. Finally, I had a much sharper week with my picks. The only game I missed on last weekend was the Oklahoma vs. Kansas…


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 4 college football picks

September 18, 2014

Ultimate bragging rights remain on the line between my wife, Stefanie, and I. Entering the fourth week of the college football season I am hoping to find a way to pad my head-to-head prediction record, but this looks like another tight week on the prediction front. My knack for rooting for an upset may cost me, but this week’s picks are in and final. Before we move on to this…


Episode 145 – The Week 1 Rewind

Kenny Hill, Texas A&M
September 2, 2014

Wow. What a way to get started with the 2014 college football season. With no disrespect to Eastern Washington and Sam Houston State, the first weekend on the college football calendar was nothing short of entertainment. It started with Georgia State enjoying its moment in the national spotlight, continued Thursday with Kenny Hill introducing himself to the nation with a Texas A&M blowout at South Carolina, and saw Taysom Hill…


There will be college football played this month

Tennessee Vols
August 1, 2014

Welcome to the month of August. For the first time since January, we can say there will be college football played this month. This is a glorious thought. The first games of the season are still weeks away but now the media day circuit has come to a close, camps are opening up around the country and the momentum is carrying us toward the first kickoff of the season. We…


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)…


Which team will win their first national title, first?

July 2, 2013

UCLA, the home of over 100 national championships in multiple sports, just won their first College World Series for their first national championship in baseball. I imagine that served as the inspiration for a great question on the college football sub Reddit which asked which program will be the next to win their next college football national championship. To come up with my top five choices to answer this question…
