The entire college football universe is focused on December 7th. It is on this Sunday that which a small committee of 12 is going to announce their top 4 college football teams and reveal the contestants of the first ever College Football Playoffs (ignore all non-FBS Division I-A college football).

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

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...

Rose Bowl 100, How MSU Will Win

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.

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...

This weekend signals the beginning of the Holiday season. Trees, lights, and decorations can finally be put up and after Thursday. I’m sure Christmas music will filling in the background of retail stores and coffee shops across the nation.

Quick Hits: Week 11

Week 11 started with a boom when Oregon lost to Stanford and Baylor blew out Oklahoma on Thursday Night Football. The rest of the weekend finished relatively quiet, not many surprises as far as BCS polls go. Here are some highlights..

Required Watching: CFB Week 11

I’ve added urgency to the title because I’ve read somewhere it compels readers to read the article. With that being said, there are the games this weekend that you simply must watch, the greatest of which is the annual Nick Saban vs Les Miles/ Alabama vs LSU showdown, but I’ll get to that in a...

Quick Hits: Week 11 Thursday Night

I have traditionally ignored Thursday night football. Usually it seems like they match up two mid-major teams that I’ve never heard of and play on a what looks like a Texas high school football field field, but with less fans in the bleachers. However, last night, that was not the case. Last night featured undefeated...
