Week 5 Winners and Losers

I can already feel the seasons changing...well not really out here in the desert where it's still close to triple digits but you get the gist.  September was a relatively mundane month for college football, only offering a smattering of pivotal games that changed our perception of the entire landscape.  Thankfully the final weekend of non-conference clunkers is largely behind...

Mailbag: Michigan's mind-numbing dysfunction, Notre Dame, SEC, more

Editor's note: To submit Mailbag questions, email Stewart.Mandel@fox.com. *** I was pretty surprised to wake up Monday morning and find that Brady Hoke hasn't been fired yet. The poor performances are bad enough, but the disregard (and flimsy excuses) for player safety should've been grounds for immediate dismissal. Is there any good reason for having him finish the...

Best formula for advancing in Chase Contender Round?

Quite frankly, I think we saw some drivers playing it safe in the first round of the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Chase. They did just enough to make sure they were in the top 12 in points to be able to advance. That might have been a successful strategy in the first round, but it won't work in this second round as the pressure continues to increase tenfold. I was talking with Brad...

Outkick's Picks for Week Six 2014

Last week we went 6-3-1 with a really tough late night push on Baylor that kept us from going 7-3. Come on Baylor, you miss a field goal, allow a 51 yard touchdown pass in the final minutes and then take a knee in a first and goal situation? I don't even feel like I know you at all any more. That runs our record to 24-19 on the year for a decent 56% win rate. This is the week...
