Wisconsin Badgers football: Predicting the 2014 schedule

In the era of the championship game for the Big Ten, no team has been better than the Wisconsin Badgers. After all, they do own two of the three Amos Alonzo Stagg trophies given out. However, last season was a step back in Gary Andersen’s first year at the helm with a nine-win season. Other Big Ten West Predictions: Illinois | Iowa | Minnesota | Nebraska | Northwestern ...

Northwestern Wildcats football: Predicting the 2014 schedule

Northwestern went from hosting ESPN College GameDay to one of the most cursed teams of the 2014 season in a hurry. Losing starting talent left and right didn’t help matters much. So, the hope was that 2014 would bring a fresh start…but that appears highly unlikely heading in to the season.

CFB: Watch Mark Richt's insane slow-motion backflip off high dive

Mark Richt has always struck me as a fairly chill guy by college football head coach standards. He’s dealt with ridiculous hot seat talk emanating from Georgia circles better than most would. He’s always preached faith and at least some semblance of balance in life. He seems measured. Richt, by and large, seems like the kind of dude you’d love to cookout with. He’s not some...

The Big Ten Is Running Back Country

The stud running back appears to be a dying breed these days. We see them drafted lower and lower each year in the NFL with the migration to “running back-by-comittee” strategies league-wide. We also see more passing than we ever have in the college game, reducing the importance of the position at that level as well. One place where we aren’t really seeing the death of the...
