Nick Saban Is in Rarified Air

What more can you say about Nick Saban? He led the Alabama Crimson Tide to his sixth national championship last night, coming from a 13-0 hole to beat Georgia. By the way, Saban is the first dude to win national championships at TWO different schools (Alabama and LSU). He did it by yanking a dude…

The World’s Quickest 2018 College Football Playoff Preview

Oklahoma vs. Georgia Yeah, I know that Baker Mayfield is sick (or hungover from a bender), but I am not going to bet against him. There is a reason why Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy: the dude can ball. The only thing I don’t like about the Sooners is that they do not play defense….

The College Football Playoff: The Alabama Invitational

Editor’s note: shout out to Shannon Sharpe for coining the phrase used in the title of this rant.  Check him out on “Undisputed” from 9:30 to noon weekdays on FS1. I knew the College Football Playoff committee didn’t want to leave Alabama out when they ranked the Crimson Tide #5 after their beatdown at the…

The bizarre Tennessee football coach search saga (now that weak-ass athletics director for fired). Time to add the…

Don’t Blame Schiano for the Tennessee Coaching Mess

To say that the University of Tennessee is a dumpster fire is perhaps the understatement of the year.  What an unmitigated disaster Rock Top has become. Let’s start with the 2017 football season. The Volunteers, as they have the past few years under former head coach Butch Jones, failed under the high expectations set before…

Big Ten Is in Deep CFP Doo-Doo

This past weekend was one to remember in college football. How about Miami’s big win over Virginia Tech, where they announced to the rest of the college football world that it is back?  Ditto for Clemson reminding everyone it is still among the best in college football with a Textile Bowl win over my alma…

CFP Committee Got it Right with Georgia

This may be one of the shortest rants I have ever produced because, well, I do not have any beef with the initial College Football Playoff rankings in 2017. None.  Zilch. Georgia is more deserving than Alabama of the top ranking, and the CFP Committee agrees with me. I have always said that one should…
