Brady Hoke is out after 4 years

Announced in a press conference this afternoon, Brady Hoke will not be returning to the University of Michigan football program in 2015. Each year as head coach, Hoke posted fewer wins, finishing with only 5 this year and failing to make a post-season bowl.

OSU's Shrinking Playoff Hope

OSU’s Shrinking Playoff Hope

Ohio State’s playoff dream broke along with J.T. Barrett’s ankle Saturday afternoon. During the first play of the 4th quarter, Barrett took off on a designed run and got crushed. The freshman Heisman candidate was elevated to starter when last year’s quarterback and Heisman candidate Braxton Miller tore a muscle in his shoulder weeks before this...
The Big10’s New Digs

The Big10’s New Digs

As summer finally shines upon the Midwest, I can’t help but look forward to fall and college football.  Only a few weeks ago we saw 30 players selected in the NFL Draft. While we may have loved watching them in the past, we have to forget about them and set our sights on the upcoming...

2014 Draft update – QBs

  Why has the 40 yards dash become so important? It’s because Speeeeeed Killlllls, as I hear football commentators say each week. The 40 yard records times for athletes at the 10, 20 and 40 yard marks so coaches can see how fast a player can accelerate and if they can sustain speed for half...

What Makes Me Laugh: Rose Bowl Edition

So the Spartans won Rose Bowl #100 and raise the MSU Rose Bowl record to 4-1. Watching that with a number of Spartan fans who were at the last Rose Bowl appearance made the entire night very special. So that is what really makes me happy. But if I had to narrow it down to...

The Michigan State Spartans take on the Stanford Cardinals for the 100th edition of the Rose Bowl. Playing in their first Rose Bowl in 25 years, the Spartans may appear to be outmatched by the Stanford Cardinals. This is the fourth year in a row the Cardinals have been invited to a BCS bowl games,...

The Last BCS Rankings Ever

Well, the final BSC rankings have been reported. After this year, never again will we have to worry about humans votes vs computer polls, or why more SEC teams start in the top 25 and don’t seem to drop as far as teams from any other conference. We won’t have to worry if a 1...
Stanford extinguishes the Sun Devils

Stanford extinguishes the Sun Devils

Stanford marched into Sun Devil Stadium with a dream, and left smelling like Roses. The Cardinals came out strong, barely a minute into the game, when RB Tyler Gaefney broke free for a 69 yard TD. DJ Foster of the Sun Devils responded minutes later with a 51 yard TD run of his own, but the...
Spartans slay Buckeyes, next stop Pasadena

Spartans slay Buckeyes, next stop Pasadena

This is the result I did not dare to dream. All year the stout MSU defense has been routinely stopping teams while the offense was been somewhat inconsistent. Playing a fortuitous schedule which omitted Wisconsin, Penn State, and Ohio State, the Spartans rolled through the Big 10 undefeated. Winning the Legends division routed the Spartans...
