Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

  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 …

  We might not have football games to enjoy,  but get ready to tune into the court room as your new gridiron this week.

College Football Nation: The Vote and Penn State is Breaking Bad

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

  When all you have to talk about from the past week of action is people arguing over uniforms, coaches trolling schools, and players apologizing for trash talk … then it’s a slow week.  We did have one big thing, though, with Northwestern’s football players taking a private vote about whether or not to unionize.  That story will be the main talking point …

Is anyone really paying attention to the college football world as March Madness is upon us?  I know I still care about college football and all it’s glory, but the college basketball tournament really helps occupy the time during this slow period.  I enjoy looking for the next “Cinderella” in the March Madness tournament.  I think everyone likes looking for …

College Football Nation: “Saban Rule” Trashed and Clemson Changes How We View College Football

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 2 Comments

It’s a good thing we have March Madness to look forward to very soon, because this is the dull time for college football between signing day and spring ball that we dread. There is still a lot of news with the “Saban Rule” being entertained or trashed on a daily basis; we have new helmet cams to change the way …

College Football Nation: Strong Rules and Johnny Manziel No. 1

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

  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: SEC Dominates and Johnny F. Does It Again

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

  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 …

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 …

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

  Bowl season is here and it already has had its fair share of excitement.  This is the time for conferences to boast how great they are compared to everyone else . . . ahem . . . SEC!  Maybe some of the other conferences will come to play and shut up the “SEC, SEC, SEC” chant at the end …

College Football Nation: Winston Wins Right Coast Heisman and Oregon Gets Left Coasted Out

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

  Busy week for college football – not so much with on the field action but more off field action, with the hiring and firings of coaches, the Heisman presentation, and some major money being thrown at some coaches.  If you want some football before bowl season starts you can catch the FCS playoffs.  The lower divisions are duking it out …

College Football Nation: Saban to Texas(?) and Duke Football Outshines its Basketball Team

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

  We had the usual big teams win today but a few upsets, as well, to make it another good Saturday of college football.  There is nothing new from the top four teams — I think they are headed into a four-way tie at this point, but each of these teams are looking to win big.  I feel sorry for whoever Alabama, …
