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…

Hey UCF, Take Florida’s (and Others’) Deal

Look, I get where Central Florida is coming from. They want the love that their top-10 ranking deserves. In fact, the Knights think they were better than their final ranking (they are STILL ranked behind Michigan for crying out loud). Here’s the problem for UCF: it hasn’t earned their spot yet. Dig this: despite UCF…

Brown was the one who took the Tar Heels to the bring of stardom.  He was responsible for a golden age the football program had not experienced since the late 1940s.   The Tar Heels…

Michigan over UCF?! REALLY???

For the record, I am – and have been for a while – a supporter of a playoff in college football. It may have taken me a while to warm up to the idea, but I eventually came around.  And so far, the lead-up to the final College Football Playoff rankings by the committee has…

No Credit for Maryland Firing Durkin

So lemme get this straight. Not even 24 hours after the Board of Trustees at the University of Maryland said it was best to bring back head football coach D.J. Durkin despite him being responsible for the death of 19-year-old Jordan McNair, the school fired his ass yesterday. Durkin was a man who led a…
