We’ve got #1 seed Georgia hosting squaring off with #4 seed Ohio State in the Peach Bowl in Atlanta. The Buckeyes only got in because USC got boatraced on Friday night in the Pac 12 Championship by Utah. Then we’ve got #2 Michigan taking on #3 TCU in the Fiesta Bowl down in the desert.… Read More The 2022 College Football Playoff is Set: Who Will Win The National Championship?
I’ve been thinking about it, and I’m willing to cut Ryan Day some slack for one major reason: He’s only in his 4th season as a head coach. He’s only 43 years old. Even Kirby Smart is only 46 (turning 47 next month), but he’s been a head coach since 2016. He’s got an additional… Read More I’ve Been too Harsh on Ohio State and Ryan Day
I’m about to fire off some hot takes, here goes: The AP Poll itself is on FRAUD WATCH™: You think Texas is better than Kentucky? I do. I think they’re better than Cincinnati, too. Utah would play them close but I’d take Texas in that game. They’re better than Kansas and Syracuse in my opinion.… Read More College Football Week 6 Reactions: FRAUDS Everywhere?!
All year, I’ve been repeating it ad nauseam: As much as we all want to crown Georgia and give them the National Title right now, Georgia has not beaten Bama since 2007. Nick Saban simply owns Georgia. Doesn’t matter if Mark Richt is coaching or Kirby Smart–Nick Saban has consistently found ways to rip Georgia’s… Read More Georgia-Bama SEC Championship Deep Dive: Will Dawgs Finally Break Through?
This will be the penultimate College Football Power Ratings of the 2021 season. After Conference Championship Saturday, I’ll compile an updated ranking, and then that’ll be it: we’re off to bowl season and the Playoff. However, I did make one final tweak to the system after the results of this past weekend. Because I am… Read More College Football Power Ratings: Conference Championship Week
In what feels like the blink of an eye, we’re already through week 8 of the 2021 college football season. It has certainly been a fun season, of course, but it’s more than halfway done. While this weekend wasn’t viewed as a great slate of games (that’s next weekend), there were actually quite a few… Read More College Football Week 8 Recap: 9 OTs in State College, Okie State Goes Down, OU’s Williams Rips Ball From Teammate in Heroic, Game-Winning Play
That is a real photo of a Purdue lineman chugging a beer that was thrown onto the field in the third quarter of the game. Was it a little early to start celebrating? Maybe, but Iowa, despite having one of the best secondaries in college football, had no answer for the Purdue passing game all… Read More College Football Week 7 Recap: IOWA Bounced By Beer-Drinking Boilermakers, Orgeron Officially Out, Tennessee Fans Fling Food on Field–PLUS: the Best QB in the Nation Nobody’s Talking About
It’s hard to believe we’re already halfway through the 2021 college football season, but here we are. College football schedules are typically back-loaded, though, meaning the biggest and best games of the season are saved for the end. While we have already seen some heavyweight non-conference bouts, like Georgia-Clemson and Oregon-Ohio State, most of the… Read More College Football Mid-Season Report: The Stats That Will Decide “Who’s In”
So four top-10 teams went down this weekend. This has been a really fun college football season, but the problem is the two teams at the top just look completely untouchable. It now looks as if Bama and Georgia have just left the rest of the SEC behind. I know we always say the SEC… Read More College Football Week 5 Reactions: Georgia is DOMINANT, Lots of Ranked Teams Lose
This is a cool clip of Carmelo Anthony talking about what LeBron said to him when he called him about becoming a Laker this offseason: “It was no-bullshit. It was a real call. I wasn’t expecting it–I mean, we talked about it the year before, about getting together. I heard it, and that’s my brother,… Read More Carmelo Anthony on How LeBron Recruited Him to the Lakers: “Yo, I Need You”
