Report: ‘Well has been poisoned’ for Lane Kiffin as USF candidate

It doesn’t sound as if Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin will be a candidate for the vacant USF coaching job. It’s not necessarily because of lack of interest, but rather something significantly more personal. With Willie Taggart leaving the Bulls to take the Oregon job, there was some talk that Kiffin might be a fit to replace him. ESPN reported Wednesday that Kiffin...

How the amazing comeback of James Conner is fueling Pitt's solid year

Over the weekend, I included Pitt star James Conner in my latest Heisman Top 5. I know other running backs have gaudier stats, but I felt like the big running back deserves special consideration after setting the ACC career record for touchdowns with 53. He did so in a game where he ran for 101 yards (on just 14 carries) and two touchdowns in a 56-14 blowout of Duke. On the season...

Three Things We Learned about the AAC in Week Four

Memphis dominates, South Florida finally plays someone, and the whole conference is better than anyone predicted. South Florida is good, but not, y’know, Playoff-good South Florida was absent from this space last week, as despite being 3-0 we still hadn’t really learned anything about them, other than they were adept at squashing bad teams.

Because of this, they have created a new moniker for their fairly new rivalry. The schools...

Syracuse coach Babers retains an even keel in tough start

Three games into his first season at Syracuse, coach Dino Babers is going through the customary growing pains as he puts his stamp on the program. The offense is grasping his fast-paced style, but the defense is depleted and has been torched for too many big plays in two blowout losses as the Orange prepare to hit the road for the first time this fall.
