We are now a third of the way through the season already. I’ve altered the formula just a bit by adding Net Tackles for Loss. I just think it’s one of the most important stats in college football and I discovered a site that tracks it well, so I added it into the formula.

Georgia, who we all previously thought to be on a completely different level than everyone else, and in the process of waltzing back to the National Championship Game, surprisingly had some difficulty dispatching of… Kent State? The final score was 39-22. Three turnovers by Georgia certainly gave Kent State some easy points, but they’re not… Read More College Football Thoughts & Hot Takes, Week 4: Everyone Is Flawed
It’s already Thursday and I don’t have enough time to go over every team, so I’ll just fire out some hot takes about some of the more notable developments in the NFL this past week. TuaNon validation! Eagles look like a wagon Bills keep rolling Nathanial Hackett is in over his head 49ers Already Back… Read More NFL Week 2 Hot Takes and Takeaways
We’re through three weeks (for some teams, four) so I think I’ve got enough data to start compiling the power ratings. Now, granted, most teams have played just non-conference opponents thus far, so we still don’t really know just how “real” a lot of these teams are.

Alabama Notre Dame Texas A&M Nebraska vs. Oklahoma Those are my thoughts on some of the main matchups for this weekend. It’s still too early in the season for me to really have strong opinions on a lot of these teams one way or another, so for the next week or two I’m not going… Read More College Football Week 2 Thoughts and Hot Takes
Because I’m a huge college football nerd who loves “what if” scenarios, and because my curiosity got piqued when I ran through what a hypothetical 12-team playoff in 2021 would’ve looked like. So I wanted to do it for even more prior seasons. A few things: first, I had to re-do all of them after… Read More How Would the 12-Team College Football Playoff Have Looked in Past Seasons? Part I: 2014-2021
Earlier in the week I did the AFC, now I’m doing the NFC. I did most of this before the games on Sunday but not all of it. For a lot of these I’m cheating because it’s already Sunday night. But whatever; sue me. The NFC is weird. In my view, there’s a clear-cut top-3… Read More 2022 NFL Predictions, Part 2: Planting the Flag on All 16 NFC Teams
Rookie/new head coaches showed out in week 1: Todd Bowles (not a rookie but starting off his second head coaching stint) got a win. Matt Eberflus with the Bears won. Kevin O’Connell with the Vikings won. Mike McDaniel with the Dolphins won. Dennis Allen (also not a rookie head coach but starting his tenure off… Read More NFL Week 1 Notes
First and foremost, if Quinn Ewers doesn’t get hurt, Texas wins this game. Probably easily, honestly. They were the better team for most of the game.
