Wife Knows Best: Week 13 College Football Picks

After a poor showing in Week 11, I bounced back with a perfect Week 12 slate. It could not have come at a better time as it helped me to even the weekly head-to-head score as well. We both took wins with Ohio State, Alabama and Florida State taking care of business. This guaranteed a […]

How your team will or will not win its conference or division

College football’s regular season is coming down the final stretch, which means it is crunch time in the conference and division championship races. Not every team is playing for a spot in the College Football Playoff, but everybody seems to have some impact on the new postseason format. The Big 12 may lack a conference […]

Episode 153 – Doug Flutie on the Hail Flutie, Heisman Trophy race, playoffs and the Capital One Cup

Take a moment to think of the top plays in college football history. Think of five of them, and I will bet I can guess two of them for sure, and perhaps a third. One of them might be The Play, which recorded one trombone casualty in a game between Stanford and Cal. Another might […]

Don’t look now, but Boise State is now biggest threat to Marshall

In the new age of baseball it has become silly to judge a starting pitcher based heavily on wins and losses. The College Football Playoff selection committee has already shown they look deeper beyond wins and losses in how they operate as well. This could be good for Boise State. Going undefeated may not be […]

Last week saw the game of the year playout in the Big Ten East Division with Ohio State going to East Lansing and beating Michigan State. The game was a rematch of last season’s Big Ten Championship Game and it saw the Buckeyes score revenge on the road against the team that beat them in […]

McGuire Metric and College Football Playoff Contenders

Oregon slipped past Florida State in the latest College Football Playoff ranking Tuesday night. In the grand scheme of the playoff format, which team is ranked second and which is ranked third is rather meaningless. The location of the game for No. 2 and No. 3 is determined after figuring out where No. 1 will be […]

Is there really SEC bias out there?

As the college football season continues to play out, the SEC continues to look as strong in the polls as it ever has. The most recent Associated Press top 25 sees Mississippi State on top of the college football world, with Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss and Georgia also appearing in the top 10. With a […]

Heisman Watch: TCU’s Trevone Boykin a rising star

Every season, the Heisman Trophy race seems to have a challenger emerge out of nowhere. Early on it looked as though Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill would be that star out of nowhere, but as the month of October draws to a close, it appears another quarterback from the Lone Star State is the hot […]

Everything fell into place for me last week. For the first time all season, I went a perfect 6-0 in my college football picks. To top things off, I also took home the top spot in the NFL football pool I participate in thanks to Washington knocking off the Dallas Cowboys Monday night. Can I […]

Instant replay is great, but it can be better

I love college football. I am a big fan of the video instant replay process, and feel the system results in far more correct calls being made on the field compared to the few that are botched. We tend to remember the botched replay rulings far more vividly though, and understandably so. It is these […]

Get ready to debate one-loss playoff contenders

We may not know much about what will happen with the College Football Playoff, but we do know at least two spots are going to be filled by teams with at least one loss. With no more undefeated teams in the Big 12, Big Ten or Pac-12, and only two remaining undefeated teams in the […]

Another week of college football led to another dismal week of picking college football games for me. Not so much for my wife. We once again went head-to-head in picking games this weekend, and once again I was the one looking like I have no clue what I am talking about. We both whiffed on […]

Heisman Watch: Golson needs some Luck of the Irish vs. Florida State

No school has had more Heisman Trophy winners than Notre Dame. The Irish, tied with Ohio State for the most Heisman winners in school history, have had seven players win college football’s highest individual honor. As storied a history as the Heisman Trophy and Notre Dame football have, the Irish have had just one player […]

Examining Illinois’ alternate “Gray Ghost” uniform

When I first saw the images of the gray uniforms Illinois will be wearing this weekend, I kind of hated them. Now that I have taken some time to read about them and let the images soak in a bit more, I still think they are ridiculous. Illinois will wear what they are calling their […]

Fighting Irish fighting for national respect vs. Florida State
