If you are a soccer fan then you are just about in heaven right now. You will have your next couple weeks occupied and not realize all the college football action is happening in court rooms and police reports.

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 …

  This could be the best Saturday we have had in college football this season.  The upset bug was at work all around the country.  We are really starting to see who are the contenders (Alabama, Oregon, FSU) and the pretenders (Clemson, Georgia, LSU).  Team stocks are rising for the contenders and falling for the others.  We had teams in …

  Great weekend of college football. We will be having some movement in the Top-10 for sure after certain teams’ performances.  The SEC brags about defense but it seems to be the last thing on their mind as every game is played.

Was it worth the wait?  After spending all day on my couch watching college games, the last seven football-free months seemed to just melt away.  In week one of the season we have had all the excitement a fan could ask.  The week saw several FCS teams upsetting FBS squads, BCS schools losing to NON-BCS challengers and a few exciting …

By this time next week you will be happy or sad for multiple reasons.  Your favorite team will have taken the field and either given you hope for the season or made you dread the rest of it.  The majority of fans will witness their teams feasting on early-season “cupcakes.”  A few teams will step up to the plate in …

Who is Crashing the Party in Pasadena?

It used to be the Top Ten. A team had to start the season ranked tenth or higher if they wanted to win the national championship, as every team since 1990 had done.  Then along came Auburn in 2010 who cheated lowered the bar, (as they did in so many other areas[1]) of what a team’s preseason ranking needed to …
