‘Tis the season, my friends. The eager anticipation is almost at a conclusion with opening night of the 2015 FBS football season almost upon us. The 2015 campaign opened with a bang last Saturday, as Montana scored a touchdown in the final seconds to upend four-time defending national champion North Dakota State. The Championship Subdivision […]
Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin offered USA Today‘s George Schroeder a morsel of optimism about his Aggies in 2015. “We’ve got a chance to be good,” he said. Considering how often coaches will downplay their teams’ strengths, Kevin Sumlin’s assessment can be interpreted as downright giddiness. After an up-and-down 2014, Schroeder contrasts the Aggies’ […]
Measures for success vary between programs. While nothing less than a conference championship and potential berth in the College Football Playoff will suffice for the game’s upper echelon, reaching a bowl game is a major milestone for a much larger section of the college football landscape. Each Power Five conference has at least one program […]
Neither Colorado nor Missouri plays Notre Dame, but each program’s head coach has an opinion on the Fighting Irish. Speaking with ESPN Wednesday, Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre advocated uniformity in conference scheduling. That’s been a lingering issue in the College Football Playoff era, and with good reason. Three of the Power Five leagues — […]
Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher made what seemed like the only logical choice Monday, dismissing quarterback De’Andre Johnson after video of the talented freshman punching a woman surfaced. But given Oklahoma’s reinstatement of Joe Mixon, Johnson’s dismissal wasn’t necessarily a slam-dunk decision. Johnson’s attorney issued a non-apology apology Monday shortly after media outlets picked […]
Two-time national champion — er, sorry, one-time national champion wink-wink — two-time Heisman finalist and 2004 winner Matt Leinart makes his debut on the College Football Hall of Fame ballot. His credentials from three seasons as USC Trojans quarterback, during the program’s most dominant era, make Matt Leinart a shoo-in first-ballot Hall of Fame selection. […]
Bobby Bowden’s criticism of Jameis Winston earlier this week sent the sports echo chamber into a frenzy. Bowden may be less than enthused with the 2013 Heisman winner, but one of Bowden’s best pupils has taken on the task of mentoring Winston: 1993 Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward. If Winston’s going to get the Florida […]
Welcome to another edition of CFBHuddle.com’s Friday Q&A, the weekly column that lazily tasks you, the reader, with generating my content for me allows you, the reader, to sound off. With the NCAA Tournament in its second weekend, it’s only fitting that one of this week’s Qs take on the most prominent figure of the […]
I’m not a lawyer — there are no shortage of sports bloggers who fill that niche — but I don’t think I need to pass the state bar to know Carl Pelini suing his former FAU assistant coach, Matt Edwards. Sports Illustrated‘s Thayer Evans first reported the defamation suit. Edwards notified administrators FAU administrators of […]
Colorado wide receiver Nelson Spruce added to his national-leading touchdown reception mark in the Buffs’ 21-12 defeat of Hawaii Saturday. And No. 7 came in spectacular fashion:
Weekly Q&A took a hiatus last week for Pac-12 media days, but we’re back. Don’t be bashful about submitting your questions. Just tweet @CFBHuddle or @kensing45, and feel free to use the hashtag #QA. Maybe next week you, The College Football Huddle reader, can get #QA trending. Or not. Either way, keeping the questions coming.
Pac-12 media days 2014 is a wrap, and attention now turns to upcoming preseason camps. The coming weeks might be a lull for college football fans, but excitement is at a fever pitch for every program across the nation.
Take Two. Pac-12 media days is pluralized, joining the rest of the Power 5 conferences with a multiple-day event to kickoff the season. Check out part 1 of the Pac-12 media days preview here.
If you haven’t jumped on the Colorado bandwagon, you should probably do so soon. Yes, that Colorado.
You may have noticed The College Football Huddle is bereft of award watch list rundowns. The various organizations responsible for college football’s various individual honors deluge media every mid-July with increasingly lengthy rosters of preseason candidates. These are less list than they are databases of virtually every notable player at a given position, thus are […]
