The humiliation of Bret Bielema

That was hilarious! Pretty much everyone agreed that Bret Bielema came across as a bumbling fool when he tried to rip Ohio State’s schedule and then proceeded to have his over-hyped Razorbacks crap the bed against Toledo. Bielema is a blowhard and also an overrated coach. He hopped aboard the Wisconsin train and basically just kept the same formula. He had some success while Michigan...

Rutgers decision haunts Big Ten

Pat Forde does his usually excellent job summarizing the Rutgers dumpster fire and the mess this has created for Jim Delany and the Big Ten. But he also throws in an interesting nugget that explains some of the motivation behind targeting Rutgers in the first place.

Baylor less than impressive with start to cupcake schedule

By now most college football fans are familiar with Baylor’s embarrassing nonconference schedule. This year the chest-thumping Bears get the season started with SMU, Lamar and Rice. The plan of course is to run up some impressive (though meaningless) stats playing defenses that resemble an intramural touch football game, and naturally Baylor chalked up over 50 points against defensive...

Was TCU exposed against Minnesota?

It’s easy to overreact when watching college football. We’re dealing with college kids and from week to week it’s impossible to come to definitive conclusions about a team based on just one game. That said, TCU did not look like a powerhouse last night against Minnesota. Frankly, TCU didn’t really beat Minnesota; the Gophers beat themselves with several sloppy turnovers...

Judge rules in favor of Tom Brady; smacks down NFL and Roger Goodell

The Deflategate mess has blown up in the face of Roger Goodell and the NFL. They took a misdemeanor infraction by Tom Brady and turned it into a Watergate-level scandal. Goodell’s foolishness may not hurt the NFL in today’s reality TV world where any exposure seems to be good exposure, but the NFL was coming off one of the most exciting playoffs and Super Bowl in years, and...

The RGIII mess in Washington

Things keep deteriorating for Robert Griffin III in Washington. He was hurt again against the Lions, and now the debate begins as everyone tries to assign blame. Given the offensive play of the Washington offensive line, some are naturally making the argument that Jay Gruden should have sat RGIII earlier in the preseason game. Also, if you read through this comprehensive breakdown...

Rex Ryan signs Ik Enemkpali

The New York Jets are still a joke, and now Rex Ryan may be bringing the clown show to Buffalo. After breaking Geno Smith’s jaw with a punch, linebacker Ik Enemkpali was signed by the Buffalo Bills. This may work out for Buffalo, as Rex knows this player from last season and many feel he’s a promising, young linebacker. But right now Rex isn’t going to get the benefit of the...

For an unknown reason, NFL history has robbed the Redskins dynasty of the 1980s and early 90s of the recognition it deserves. But the real question is, why? NFL fans remember the Packers championship teams of the 60s, the Steelers of the 70s, the 49ers of the 80s, the Cowboys of the 90s, and the Patriots of the present day. But no one remembers the Joe Gibbs-led Redskins. From...
