Big 12 Football: 5 Things We Learned in Week 4

We didn’t find out so much about the Big 12 this week, well, because not so much happened in the Big 12 this week. One high-profile game, delayed by lightning, took place Saturday night. Other than that, we didn’t see many games, which is okay. The lack of learning much about the league tells us plenty about the league. 5. Iowa State won’t go winless With Kansas on the schedule...

Firing Brian VanGorder after four games makes absolutely no sense

Brian Kelly’s decision to fire Brian VanGorder four games into the season makes absolutely no sense. That’s not to say that the defense has been perfect this season. It hasn’t been. After four games, Notre Dame ranks 126th nationally in sacks, 108th in tackles for a loss, 103rd in total defense, and 96th in rushing defense. The Irish D was also mediocre at best in crucial situations...

The 5 biggest stories from the first quarter of the season

So hey, I’ve got some good news and I’ve got some bad news. The bad news is, a quarter of the college football season is over. That’s right, we’re 25 percent of the way (for most teams) to losing “I’ve got to watch the game, honey” as an excuse for not getting anything done on Saturday. The good news? A quarter means you’ve still got 75 percent of the season to go...

Les Miles the latest casualty of the Saban Effect

It reads either like some doomsday movie or some odd scientific theory, but it’s just claimed another pelt in Les Miles of LSU: The Saban Effect. LSU let go of Miles after just over 12 years at the place, leaving behind a 114-34 record overall, including 62-28 in an SEC West that grew from simply good to utterly brutal during his tenure in Baton Rouge. During his time, LSU finished...

Michigan throttles Penn State in tale of teams on divergent paths

Michigan thrashed utterly out-manned Penn State 49-10 in front of a raucous home crowd Saturday afternoon, giving the first real glimpse to just how frightening Michigan can be … and just how much ground PSU has to make up on their way back to elitism. From the opening jump, when PSU got the ball deep in their own territory and proceeded to go backwards to the point where they...

Watch: Taysom Hill hurdles defender for first down

Although some in the media have suggested there’s a quarterback controversy at BYU, Taysom Hill has the job because of his uncanny ability to make plays. Just look at what he did here. Facing a third and 11, he pulled the ball down and ran for a first down. At the end of the run, he literally hurdled a West Virginia defender to give the Cougars a first down at Mountaineer 7. The...

Ole Miss Rebels throttle Georgia, remain in New Year's Six bowl race

After a soul crushing loss against Alabama last weekend, you had to wonder what you’d see from Ole Miss against Georgia. Would the Rebels listen to a lot of the media – which wants to repeat ad nauseam that the team blew two 20-point leads this year – or would it play like a team that still has an outside shot at a conference championship? It’s clearly the latter. The Ole...

USC is in trouble. That’s the headline.

Even on the lousiest day a person has, if you really want to be overly optimistic, “well, I woke up I guess.” Southern Cal (USC) lost to Utah to drop to 1-3 on the season Saturday morning (if you fancy yourself some Eastern Standard Time) and unfortunately for the program, they may be next on the list of “traditional powerhouse programs that go through modern dark ages.”...

Clay Helton makes the right move by starting Sam Darnold

Clay Helton is making the right move by starting Sam Darnold at quarterback this weekend. That’s not to say that Max Browne deserves the blame for the Trojans’ 1-2 record. Sure, he struggled against Alabama, but so do most quarterbacks not named Chad Kelly, Johnny Manziel, or Cardale Jones. Yet, Browne rebounded from that rough outing like a champion, completing 41 of 58 passes...

Pac 12 Football: Five Thoughts from Week 3

For this week’s version of “thoughts,” we’re going with questions, because right now there are more questions than there are answers. That’s usually how college football rolls until the end of the season and it use to be, beyond. There may be no more curious conference in the land, though, than the Pac-12 Is USC the next major power to go into the dark ages? Over the last...

Cal vs Texas had a bit of a strange ending and replay review, which I’m sure everyone has seen by now. Many didn’t quite understand what happened; many think that Texas should have been given the ball. Let’s break down exactly what call was made and see if it was right. First of all, let’s take a look at the play. It looks like a clear touchdown by Cal live, which would...

Please forgive us that it’s running a day later than usual, but Terry was sick and didn’t cast his ballot until Tuesday morning. Feel free to insert a “Your archrival played so poorly that it literally made Terry Johnson sick” joke here. All kidding aside, here’s this...
