Clemson Is the New Sheriff in College Football

Earlier today, I ranted on why Alabama is not going to fall off. I think any prediction of the Tide’s demise is, frankly, beyond stupid. That doesn’t mean I’m going to not respond to what Clemson did last night. We college football fans have been waiting for a squad to emerge as a legitimate foul…

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…

Clemson: Alabama 2.0

2014 College Football Preview: ACC

The ACC had a lot to be excited about.  Two BCS bowl winners.  A national champion.  No wonder ACC brought in that swagger during its media sessions…

Time to Give it Up for ACC Football

Before I go any further with this rant, let me state that I have hyped up my beloved Atlantic Coast Conference in the past – sometimes a bit prematurely.  At times I had to eat my words. Not this time. Take a look at the ACC teams in the latest Associated Press and USA Today/Coaches polls.  Three…
