2016 College Football Week 3 in Review

Alabama, Ohio State and Louisville are the three best teams in the country. All three teams scored impressive wins this weekend.   Alabama came from 21 points down to beat Ole Miss on the road, snapping a two-game losing streak vs. the Rebels in the process.  Ohio State pimp-slapped Oklahoma (also on the road).  And…

Congrats, North Carolina!

If you are a proud North Carolinian like me, this is a VERY sad day, particularly if you enjoy college sports.   The Atlantic Coast Conference has decided to move several championship events, including the ACC college football championship game from Charlotte, earlier today.  This comes after the NCAA decided to move other predetermined events…

Thoughts on College Football’s Week 1

Man, what a time to be alive if you are a fan of college football.  The sport gave us the most exciting opening week in recent memory.  That’s because we saw matchups of top teams, from Ole Miss-Florida State, Oklahoma-Houston, Georgia-UNC, LSU-Wisconsin, and Alabama-USC.   To quote the great Dick Vitale, “that was awesome with…

Memo to ACC: Go to a 9-Game Sked Already!

The Atlantic Coast Conference is back to that modern-day, age-old question/dilemma: should it go to nine conference football games in a season? In its agreement with the conference to create the ACC Network (and its digital partner, ACC Network Plus), ESPN mandated that the ACC either go to a nine-game conference schedule or play TWO Power…

The Big 12 = the Next Big East

The Big 12 Conference is treading on treacherous waters as of late. After all, the conference is looking to expand – likely by four teams – and the crop they have to choose from does not look all that enticing.  The likes of Houston, Memphis, Cincinnati, central Florida, and even BYU do not scream “move…

Big 12 Expansion: Add Memphis and Cincinnati

As another day goes by, it’s another day the Big 12 (10) Conference finds its way back into the news for the comically wrong reasons. At its football media days earlier this week, the Big 12 decided to do two things: 1) not drop sanctions on Baylor for its bumbling of the sexual assault saga,…
