The Alarming Stat that could end Alabama’s Reign

Alabama has been so dominant over the last five seasons that when the Crimson Tide show any kind of weakness, a mass of euphoria sweeps the nation. “Alabama just gave up a 30 yard pass. Their secondary looks weak! Maybe even we could throw on them and get a few cheap touchdowns!” “Wow, look at that mediocre team sacking A. J. McCarron. Our guys can do that!” Usually after...

National Title Picture: Florida State, Oklahoma State are intriguing darkhorses

We are now three weeks into the college football season, meaning there’s too many games to go to start previewing potential national championship games. ESPN.com has already written an article based around an Alabama vs. Oregon championship game, referencing it as the game all college football fans want to see. Maybe it is. Perhaps its the game we are going to see, but let’s...

Point After Touchdown: Murray Shuts Up Critics, Texas Embarrassed

The Point After Touchdown for this week breaks down Georgia and Miami (FL)’s big win and looks at whether it’s time for Texas head coach Mack Brown to step aside. WHO’S HATING NOW: Georgia’s Aaron Murray has heard it all in his career. He’s been unable to consistently win against top 10 teams and going into Saturday he still had not won against South Carolina in his career...

NFL Predictions: Cowboys vs. Broncos Super Bowl?

A Peyton Manning versus Tony Romo Super Bowl? It could happen. (Photos: Zimbio.com) Every year a handful of teams in the NFL surprise and a handful of teams disappoint. For instance, the 2012 Washington Redskins. Picked by most to finish in the NFC East cellar, the Redskins rode Robert Griffin the III all the way to a division title. Publications usually do a pretty bad job of picking...

Winston shines in debut; could be Heisman darkhorse

I may have written my Heisman Watch for week one a day too early. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, a redshirt freshman with high expectations before even taking his first collegiate snap, made Pittsburgh’s defense look powerless to stop him Monday night. Some may say it is premature to call a quarterback a real Heisman Trophy contender after just one start and it probably...

Heisman Watch: Week 1 Edition; Boyd takes Early Lead

1. Tajh Boyd, Clemson QB Boyd, who already had Heisman aspirations moving into his senior season, became the early frontrunner after his performance against No. 5 Georgia in Saturday’s opener. He was 18 of 30, for 270 and three touchdowns through the air. Plus, he added 42 yards and two scores on the ground. Considering the Tigers don’t play another ranked team until Oct. 19...

Four different ways to look at Alabama’s ugly win over Virginia Tech

Alabama’s A. J. McCarron scambles against Virginia Tech in the Crimson Tide’s 35-10 win Saturday. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) It really doesn’t matter how you look at Alabama’s win over Virginia Tech, it was ugly.  Even the most cynical Crimson Tide fans probably would agree with that conclusion, considering Alabama was held to 206 total yards in its 35-10 victory...

Florida Continues to Recruit RB Scarbrough

Running back Bo Scarbrough continues to be an Alabama commitment. He’s been as firm on that verbal commitment as a high school player can be this far away from National Signing Day. That hasn’t stopped Florida and head coach Will Muschamp  from recruiting him though. Michigan is also still in the race. Scarbrough’s Twitter page continues to be loaded down with pictures of...

Trickett’s Transfer Makes it Official: Winston is the Man at FSU

Clint Trickett is on his way out of Tallahassee. Trickett was expected to battle Jameis Winston for the starting quarterback spot in 2013, but now it appears the job is Winston’s to lose. Since he is on track to graduate this spring, Trickett will not have to sit out a year and can play right away in 2013. He will be a redshirt junior, with two years of eligibility left. Trickett...

RANK COMMENT 1 Although the Crimson Tide did not dominate Ole Miss, Nick Saban’s team did feel what it was like to trail in a game for the first time all season (for 15 whole seconds). 2 Just like last week, Oregon struggled for a half. Washington State played well but the Ducks are on a mission. One thing to watch: DeAnthony Thomas has to touch the ball more early...

Bowl Projections Week 5: Louisiana Tech in a BCS Game?

I know what you’re thinking: This guy must be a little crazy. Maybe I am. I have Louisiana Tech going to a BCS bowl in my week four college football bowl projections. I know, it sounds stupid, but I can explain.  The official BCS rules state that a non-BCS team like Boise State or Louisiana Tech  will receive an automatic berth into a BCS game if: It is ranked in the top 12...

CFS Computer Rankings: Week 4

The BCS Standings aren’t released until week 8 of the college football season. After doing my first ever set of computer rankings, I found out why. Although computer rankings are supposed to objectively rank college football teams, clearly, after just four weeks, there simply isn’t enough data at this point to get a very accurate ranking of teams. No, computers don’t lie. But...

Power 16: Florida State Moves to No. 3, Kansas State to No. 4

RANK COMMENT 1 Alabama has been impressive, but the Crimson Tide’s opponents have not been. The best win between Michigan, Western Kentucky, Florida Atlantic, and Arkansas is against Kentucky (by the Hilltoppers). 2 The Ducks defense shined against Arizona and DeAnthony Thomas continues to throw his name into the Heisman discussion. Oregon figures to destroy Mike Leach...

What We Know, Don’t Know About College Football’s Contenders

Florida Gators (4-0, 3-0) What we know: Florida is a lot better than last season when a 4-4 start spiraled into an 0-4 October. A large reason behind that is quarterback Jeff Driskel, who was pushed into action before he was ready last season due to John Brantley’s injury against Alabama. Driskel was not even the clear cut starter a month ago, but after leading Florida to second...

Heisman Watch: Michigan States Bell, Nebraskas Martinez Rising

It is always hard to come up with a Heisman Watch after one week of football, but I think it is important to recognize the guys that started their season with a big game. For example, Michigan State’s Le’Veon Bell, who helped the Spartans defeat Boise State in one of the weekend’s marquee games. He touched the ball 50 times! Can he do that all year? Maybe, maybe not, but if...
