Alabama Will Be Just Fine, Folks…

Sure, I was one of the happy campers who saw the Alabama Crimson Tide hey their asses molly-whopped by the Clemson Tigers last night (go ACC!!!). I was happy to see coach Nick Satan get humbled. I was happy to see all those SEC honks on ESPN (Paul Finebaum, David Pollack, Booger McFarland, and MANY…

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 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.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops was really feeling himself after his Sooners curb-stomped Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.  Remember when Stoops said that the SEC was…

2014 College Football Preview: SEC

Welcome to Part II of my 2014 college football preview.  Today I will preview the Southeastern Conference, otherwise known as “The Beast”. If it weren’t for me growing up in Atlantic Coast Conference territory, I would follow the SEC almost as religiously as I would the National Football League. This conference has compelling matchups on…
