Sept. 2 News: Navy QB Keenan Reynolds Pursues History

Outstanding Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds is on the precipice of setting several (more) college football records in 2015. That’s one reason I tabbed him a Heisman Trophy sleeper. Another is perfectly captured in Gene Wang’s profile of Keenan Reynolds for the Washington Post. Wang highlights the various records Reynolds has already set, as well as […]


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 […]

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.

The Unsettling Sam Ukwuachu Situation at Baylor

Texas Monthly published a powder-keg investigative piece Thursday that chronicles the “silence at Baylor” regarding defensive end Sam Ukwuachu. If you’ve yet to read this long exhaustively reported piece, do so — even if, at times, you makes you cringe. Especially if it makes you cringe.

Aug. 17 News: Ricky Town Transferring from USC

Freshman quarterback Ricky Town is transferring from USC, an abrupt yet not necessarily surprising decision.

Six months. That’s the duration between former Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams announcing his intention to transfer to Oregon, and his clearing the final hurdle to actually do so.
