Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

  As this off season drags on, we really have only the Conference Media days to keep us busy along with the NCAA going to court against everyone. The NCAA will be on trial for five different cases in the upcoming months. All cases will change the college football world dramatically, if won. With all this going on, the SEC …

  Anyone hungry for seafood?  If so head on over to Tallahassee.  I hear they are just “giving” it away.  On top of that fun story you have Nick Saban actually being happy with Lane Kiffin, the SEC setting forth a better way of scheduling, and some beef with how things are going to be done with the college football …

First off, it has been a busy week for me.  Not so much with National Signing Day (NSD) and paying attention to recruiting but more on the family aspect.  My wife and I welcomed our 2nd child on February 1st.  I know she will be a great child because she was born before the Super Bowl, allowing me to not …

  Oh, the dreaded off season.  What do you want to talk about?  The biggest things we can focus on right now is “National Signing Day,” the ever changing Coaching Carousel, and how every team will go about re-loading after losing players to the NFL DRAFT. 1) Right now I am really impressed with new Texas Coach Charlie Strong.  He …

College Football Nation: FSU Back on Top and the Coaching Carousel

  What an amazing ending to the BCS.  Every game was non-stop action and ended in epic fashion.  The Championship game had an amazing start and a thrilling finish.  With the BCS gone, we can now start the debate over the “Final Four” of college football.  With the end of the season, we have National Signing Day on Feb. 5 to look …

  It was a very exciting week of bowl games and there were a few changes in the coaching world that will be setting off a chain reaction of other coaching relocations.  I think the two biggest shocks of the week were Penn State’s Bill O’Brien bolting so suddenly and then the way Alabama was not playing like Alabama in …

    You’ve just got to love college football.  Just when you think you know who is going to play for it all . . . TODAY HAPPENS.  You have FSU fans looking for flights to Pasadena after they put Duke football in its place.  Stanford did what they do best and ran all over Arizona State.  Auburn and Missouri …

  If you were not near a TV or news feed today, then you missed out on some of the greatest games we have seen all season.  When it is Rivalry Week, you can just throw out the records and expect both teams to bring it.  So many exciting finishes, and I think we just might have a Heisman winner …

College Football Nation: Duke does it again and Oregon is back in it

  College football was fun today.  There were so many entertaining games on all at once I don’t think I kept the TV on the same channel for more than a few minutes at a time.  We had the exciting finish down at Auburn, while their rivals Alabama did not look like the N0. 1 team in the nation.  FSU …

College Football Nation: Ducks Quacked and Tide Keep Rolling

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

  I was starting to get worried about too many undefeated teams finishing perfect.  Thanks to Stanford we had Oregon drop from the list of unbeaten.  We still have Ohio State and Northern Illinois unbeaten thanks to their bye week coming at a convenient time . . . but do those teams really matter right now?  Alabama keeps doing what …

Oregon’s Elite Defense: Ready or Not, Here They Come

Joey Holland FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

Kevin Cline “Oregon only wins because of its offense.”  Everyone knows that, even though it’s not true.  In fact, it is so deeply ingrained in everyone’s mind, that outside of the state, people rarely even bother to consider the Ducks’ D. Regardless of how this season finishes, the 2013 college football campaign has a clear-cut top tier consisting of Alabama, …
