Swamy’s Internal Monologue: Hmmm…the guys asked me to take this post-game. Should I talk about how mediocre we looked? Should I remain realistic, and talk about how shaky Etling looked in his second year starting? Should I be concerned that our entire strategy revolves around the extraordinary abilities of Mostert and Hunt, while no other aspect of the team looks even average...

WATCH: Kentucky Defensive Back A.J. Stamps With the Prettiest Interception You Are Going to See Today

There has been a lot of talk about whether Notre Dame was making the right call with putting Everett Golson back in charge of the Fighting Irish offense. Is he really the best player for the job?

When will FBS teams stop underestimating North Dakota State?

During those three years they have gone 43-2. Coming into today’s game against Iowa State they had won four straight games against FBS competition: 2010- beat Kansas 6-3 2011- beat Minnesota...

WATCH: Rice WR Zach Wright Scores First Touchdown Ever For Rice Against Notre Dame

Rice and Notre Dame have been playing football for about as long as anyone can remember which kind of makes it seem crazy that this 26-yard strike from Driphus Jackson to Zach Wright is the first that the Owls have ever scored against the Fighting Irish, but it is.To put the play in to context a little, this is just the fifth time the two teams have ever played so maybe it is not...

Video: Georgia Tech’s DeAndre Smelter Shakes Off A Defender, Scores A 71-Yard Touchdown

This throw by Georgia Tech quarterback Justin Thomas to wide receiver DeAndre Smelter should have only gone for about 26 yards.

Instead, Smelter shook the defender trying to bring him town...

Vine: Alabama’s DeAndrew White Made West Virginia’s Defense Look Silly With This Run After Catch

Alabama wide receiver DeAndrew White may be one of the shiftiest receivers in America.

Alabama leads West...
