  Media days are upon us. Of course, if you look at the news feed you will think that the SEC is the only conference to have one of them. Media day is the chance for coaches and players to answer a few questions and give fans something to look forward to in the fall. Sometimes you might even get a …

  With the NCAA trial all finished up and media days about to begin, the news was a little slow this week. The news in the college football world might be slow but it is never dull. It will really pick up when you put a bunch of coaches and players in front on a microphone for media day. Great news …

In other news, the NCAA (court) trials are still making headlines. It looks like the NCAA’s chances took a huge blow when Jim Delany took the stand and pretty much ran wild with his ideas and backed up the plaintiff’s case. Right now the NCAA is just getting hammered with so many witnesses against them. Both this week and next, the NCAA …

Is it football season yet?  I will have to ask that question every week until kickoff in August.  Right now, all we get to hear about is police reports and coaches kissing pigs.  We at least have the spring games going on, giving us a chance to speculate on how our teams will do come Fall. Let’s get to the news …

  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 …

There’s only one week left until the National Championship Game.  Will the SEC’s streak continue or will Florida State end their reign in the final game of the BCS era?  Until that game we still have the bowl games to entertain us.  Some interesting matchups but no real compelling games.  This coming week, the matchups will get better and the BCS games will …

College Football Nation: The upsets have arrived and Mack Brown survives another week

  I was starting to get worried that too many teams would finish the season undefeated, until today.  As the season goes on we are finally getting to see the upsets.  Upsets are what we live for in college football, as long as our team isn’t on the wrong end of the stick.  Watching the impossible become possible is what …

College Football Nation: Les Miles is scared and “Johnny Football” lawyers up

Three weeks until kickoff and the action is heating up. However, for some, specifically Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the only near-term action he will be seeing is in the court room. The NCAA has their hands full at this late hour thanks to the “Johnny Football” autographs mess. I think the NCAA needs to swallow their pride and start …
