BEST OF MAXIM
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is off to quite the start this season.
He’s had an amazing touchdown run in both games this season.
In my opinion as long as the Buckeyes keep winning, he’ll be a fixture in the Heisman Trophy race.
He’s already my preseason favorite for the award entering next season.
His coach knows something about taking quality athletes that...
Sophomore Quarterback David Ash was named the Davey O’Brien player of the week after leading the Longhorns to a 66-31 victory over Ole Miss in Oxford. The win gave the Longhorns their 3rd straight 3-0 start, Ash has started all three games this season and has quieted the QB controversy on the 40 acres for [...]
Nothing you’re about to read here is news. It’s all stuff that most of us already knew. But the big deal here is everything you’re about to read here came from the mouth of Urban Meyer.
Yes, the same Urban Meyer that swept Tim Tebow off his feet on the recruiting trail. And the same Urban Meyer that got so close with Tebow that the two once got all nuzzly on the sideline.
Braxton Miller should run his way closer to the Heisman Trophy on Saturday.

Two roads converge on Saturday at the Horseshoe as the Ohio State Buckeyes...
Can a player from a school on NCAA postseason probation win the Heisman? Sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller of Ohio State seems like the best bet to join Andre Ware (1989) as the only player to pull that off. Talking to various Heisman voters, no one seems inclined to punish Miller for the past sins of the program. And not going to [...]
One comment can make or break relationships and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is well aware of what.
What he stated today during an interview today will endear him to Buckeyes and cement his legend as a traitor to hardcore Gators.

Ask most USC fans, and they’ll tell you that the No. 1 reason Matt Barkley didn’t get an invite to New York last season for the Heisman Trophy ceremony was simply his team was on probation. After all, how could the upstanding voters of such a prestigious award as the Heisman, reward a player whose school had done so much wrong in the eyes of the NCAA? They couldn’t...
Breaking down Texas quarterback David Ash's numbers, by down-and-distance.
Georgia sits at 3-0 after torching Buffalo, Mizzou, and Florida Atlantic in the opening weeks of the college football season. And while each of those games had their moments of head-scratching frustration, the general consensus is as follows: the offensive line is better than expected, the run game is as good as its ever been, and the defense is just about ready to hit its stride...
The sportsbook at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, NV
The Ohio State Buckeyes have opened up as thirty-seven point favorites at the Caesers Sportsbook in Las Vegas for Saturday’s game against the Alabama-Birmingham Blazers. After back-to-back weeks of allowing lesser opponents to remain in the game for four quarters, even finding themselves trailing to Cal by one in the fourth last...
The Longhorns should enjoy this, because it may never happen again.
This team is King Tut's tomb. It is the hope diamond. It is a public appearance by David Letterman. Nicky Minaj in earth tones. A can of Surge.
This is the rarest of all specimens, a University of Texas football team that nobody knows is good enough to win the national championship.
This never happens....
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller has some pretty big shoes to fill — and they're not even from his own school.
Miller is only a sophomore, but he is already being compared to head coach Urban Meyer's best collegiate player from Florida — Tim Tebow.
Meyer compared Miller, his current quarterback, favorably to Tebow — the three-time Heisman finalist — from...
There are a few times each college football season when the fantasy stars align and we get a matchup to die for. Enter Arizona vs. Oregon.RichRod's Wildcats are No. 3 in the country in total offense (604 yards per game). Chip Kelly's Ducks are No. 5 at 596 YPG.Is it too much to ask for these two squads to continue on this torrid pace and rack up 1,200 total yards in this...
For three consecutive football weekends, Phil has enjoyed (and doled out plenty of cash) attending Ohio State football in the Horseshoe. Now he's looking forward to another week of "competitive football" against the University of Alabama ... from Birmingham.Naturally, in this week's show we talk about the Buckeyes scare against Jeff Tedford's Cal team, ...
Well, hopefully you are still with us as we enter week number 3. Because this is college football, there are always upsets, and last week proved that when Stanford beat USC.
Now mind you Stanford didn't have Andrew Luck or any of the other graduates who went on to play in the NFL or running corporations, but they still won.
We think it's because ESPN picked USC to win...
