Sept. 1 News: Sun Belt Expands with Coastal Carolina

So much for my bright idea of the winner of November’s Coastal Carolina-Liberty game earning a spot in the Sun Belt. While that remains a biggie for FCS purposes, likely serving as the de facto Big South Conference championship game, Coastal Carolina is bound for the Sun Belt regardless. Coastal Carolina will join Sun Belt […]

Trent Richardson Cut; Blame Alabama! (Not Really)

Trent Richardson’s spectacularly unspectacular NFL career appears over now that the Oakland Raiders have opted to cut the one-time Heisman Trophy finalist. Three seasons and change of Trent Richardson’s yards-per-carry being more accurately measured in inches, and his piling up more fumbles than touchdowns, probably made Monday’s news an inevitability. However, there was a time […]

Aug. 30 News: College Football’s Best Defense

Boise State boasts the right combination of high-impact pass-rushers, run-pursuing ball-hawks and lock-down coverage men that the Broncos can claim college football’s best defense.

Likewise, Helfrich wouldn’t hand the reins of Oregon’s explosive offense to a one-year stand-in if the coach didn’t see national championship potential for the coming season. Vernon Adams’ competition […]
