117 fans attended Georgia Tech’s spring game?

117? That’s the number that’s been floating around social media in terms of fans that attended the Georgia Tech spring game on Friday night. 117!

Illinois got the uniforms Syracuse should have used ☆

Illinois is undergoing a bit of a rebranding effort, although the changes are pretty subtle compared to where the Illini are coming from. As far as football is concerned, the Illini got some decent updates to a look that did not really need all that much work.

A closer look at Syracuse’s new football uniforms ☆

Like many, the initial reaction to Syracuse’s new football uniforms from me was a bland “Meh,” met with a condescending “Really?” Heck, it seems even the Syracuse football players were less than thrilled with the new look, a stark contrast to the reaction the football players at Miami had when getting a look at their new uniforms. But now that a day has passed, let’s...

Each Thursday we take a look around the world of college football and check out some of the biggest stories, best content (and sometimes worst), videos and opinions.

SEC Spring game round-up

This past weekend was busy with spring football games all over the southeast. Spring games are important for teams to see where they are at in their development as a team and for individual players but they shouldn’t be over analyzed by fans. That being said, it’s fun to get an off-season peek and see where your team, or your team’s rival is at in terms of their development...
