Week 1 Overreactions for the Average Fan

With one weekend of college football in the books, plenty of fans are already overreacting to just one week of results. Unfortunately, for those of us who look to overanalyze all things college football, week one rankings are almost as insignificant as preseason rankings. Remember folks, Ohio State lost early on last season to Virginia Tech, and ended up winning

The Non-Sports Fan’s Guide to: The Upcoming College Football Season

As I flip through the numerous television channels on a lazy summer day at home, I stop for a moment on Sportscenter. Highlights of Jordan Spieth putting and the Cubs not looking like their usual miserable selves play out in front of me. Just as I’m about to change the channel, I see it. ESPN indicates we’re mere days away

NCAA 2015 Tournament Challenge Game-by-Game Analysis: West

Big-time programs, big-time upsets, big-time barn burners. Welcome to the West. Fun fact: 12 out of the 17 teams in the West exist in the East of continental United States. Geography.

It’s Never Too Early Top 25

It’s never too early to talk college football. ESPN’s Mark Shclabach had the right idea releasing his Way-Too-Early top 25. However, I find myself at odds with Shclabach. Eight SEC teams in the top 25, Alabama at number four, USC at three, and Texas is in the top 25? I respectfully disagree with Mr. Schlabach. That’s why I am releasing

By Ryan Patterson With college football’s regular season almost over (the Army-Navy game this week is the last one), talk has naturally shifted to the new College Football Playoff, and if the correct teams made it. But I’m not here to argue the merits of Ohio State versus Baylor or TCU. No, I’m here to give my thoughts on the

Road to the College Football Playoff: Week 14

I waited until Thursday for this for a really, really specific reason.  And I’m glad I did, which we’ll get to in a moment. Last week of the regular season for many of these teams.  They get through this, and unless you’re name is TCU you have what could amount to the hardest game of the season to get by.

Road to the College Football Playoff: Week 13

By Quinn Matheis Well I did on Thursday this time.  Smite me if you will. We got a nice dosage of November this past week.  Could have been a lot more Novembery if the Jayhawks and the Golden Gophers pumped out just a little more, but oh well.  The field has shrunk considerably. Let’s get cookin’. #1 Alabama (9-1, SEC

Road to the College Football Playoff: Week 12

By Quinn Matheis Another Wednesday, another shuffle.  Grab your sandwiches and your pizza, it’s time to talk football playoffs, college-style. Some surprising losses shuffled the board around a little this week.  Nothing earth-shattering yet, but the reality of November has started to become the bane of many playoff-hopeful teams. As always, teams first, final four second. #1 Mississippi State (9-0, SEC

Who’s the Best of the Rest?

By Matt Weller Yesterday, the College Football Playoff Committee released their second weekly rankings of the season, moving the University of Oregon into the number four spot, to replace Ole Miss, who lost their second consecutive game. While these rankings may not be crucial yet, as most teams still have four games to play, it’s nonetheless interesting to see who
