Interesting Read: College Football's Most Valuable Teams

It's Christmas-time so that means Forbes published its annual list of the most valuable teams in college football. It is important to remember that this list is for football only, not the entire athletics program for a given school. Here is the link to the article, and for those of you who don't want to click through 20 slides of pictures to see where the teams ranked, I've published...

Independence Bowl Preview & Updated Bowl Challenge Standings

Independence Bowl Shreveport, LA. Texas A&M (6-6) v. Georgia (7-5). Not excited yet? Neither defense has figured out what playing defense means yet this season, which is why these teams are in Shreveport this time of year. However, instead of taking the easy way out and saying this game will feature an offensive shootout, I see ineffective offenses keeping this thing under...

Season Ending Top 25 and Notes

My Top 25 and Notes Auburn 14-0 TCU 13-0 (didn’t lose a game. No way can I put a team that didn’t even have an opportunity to play for the Title over a team that had a shot and lost.) Ohio State 12-1 (beat 7 bowl bound teams in regular season along with an impressive bowl win on SEC soil against Arkansas. I also think last year’s Oregon team may be better than...

Willie Lyles Shopped Patrick Peterson to Texas A&M

So, during the HBO Real Sports episode I mentioned earlier, news broke that former LSU DB Patrick Peterson was shopped to Texas A&M by Willie Lyles. He told the Aggies that they had to "beat" $80k to land Peterson. Obviously, they didn't. Texas A&M claims they don't pay for players, well, anymore (cough, Gold Trans Am, cough). Many different interested parties were unable...

Patrick Peterson Responds to Texas A&M Allegations

Thanks to our friends at And The Valley Shook, we have an update on Patrick Peterson: Peterson responded the allegations that he was shopped to Texas A&M for $80k in 2007 by calling them "all baloney". Peterson's statement via LSU about the allegations says that he had no relationship with Willie Lyles. The guy who wrote the story about Peterson's visit to Texas A&M says...

Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M: Can the Cowboys take the Aggies in College Station?

In week 4 of the 2011 College Football Season, the Oklahoma State Cowboys will visit College Station to play the Texas A&M Aggies. This game has huge national and conference implications. The winner gets a leg up for the Big 12 South Title and keeps its BCS Championship dreams alive. The loser is most likely out of both. Last year, OSU beat TAMU by kicking a field goal at the...

Predicting the Upsets of Week Six

Last week I got two of my three picks right (Baylor & South Florida).  This week there is 18 games featuring a ranked team versus an unranked team, lots of choices out there to choose from.  But after taking away games that look like they will be blowouts (Stanford/Colorado and Oklahoma St./Kansas for example) there are only a handful of games that look like an upset is possible...

Arkansas vs. Texas A&M Game Prediction

Photo courtesy: Arkansasrazorbacks.com Arkansas @ Texas A&M (-13) So it's week 5 and the Hogs are looking to get their second win of the season against the Texas A&M Aggies at Kyle Field.  Prior to the start of the season and knowing how bad our defense is, I thought this was a game that could be lost (I had the Hogs going 9-3).  The Hogs are looking to stop the bleeding...

Hogs Struggle…….AGAIN

One thing that any good college football program should strive for is to not be the team that everyone wants to schedule for homecoming. After a miserable performance at Texas A&M on Saturday, there’s no doubt that Arkansas AD Jeff Long’s job of filling the non-conference schedule will soon start to get easier as teams start to seek out the Hogs to fill the homecoming spot on...

Random Behavior (10 Random Thoughts)

10. Washington State’s first year head coach Mike Leach spoke out pretty strongly against his team, more specifically his O-line following a 49-6 loss to Utah.  "A part of it's effort, and some of it borders on cowardice," said Leach, as reported by the Spokesman-Review. "Our five couldn't whip their two. Sometimes they brought two. Our five couldn't whip two. If five of our guys...

SEC Standings

If only the Aggies had found a way to beat either Florida or LSU at home they would be in the driver's seat and on the path to a berth in the SEC Championship game; and who know's what might have happened after that.  After all they do have "Johnny Football."  Georgia clinched their spot in the coveted game and for all intents and purposes will face Alabama (after they beat Auburn...

Manziel Investigation Oddly Shines the Spotlight On the NCAA

With the ongoing investigation into reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel getting paid for autographing hundreds of mini-helmets and footballs, the public at large is starting to more closely examine the seemingly ridiculous rules the NCAA has in place prohibiting student athletes from being paid.  While the NCAA and numerous universities rake in millions and millions of...

The Real College Football Top 10

When the AP and USA Today put out their polls at the beginning of the season it’s based on how a team ended the previous season and usually how many returning starters they have from the previous season.  This logic can make it pretty difficult on some really good teams to get their shot at the National Championship or some of the more lucrative BCS bowls.  And some years teams far...
