2019 College Football Preview

The 2019 college football season is FINALLY upon us.

This season will be filled with very interesting story-lines. And I cannot wait to dive into to them.

How Mack Brown will fare in his return to the UNC sidelines? How will Les Miles do in the college football wasteland that is Kansas? Will Jim Harbaugh FINALLY beat Ohio State? And more importantly, will anyone — ANYONE — challenge Clemson and Alabama?

Tomorrow will kick off “Week 0” with Miami vs. Florida as the headliner, followed by four months of college football Saturdays. I. Cannot. WAIT.
