The first week of the college football season was somewhat bereft of great games. Even most of the marquee matchups were lackluster. To wit, four of the first Saturday Six-Pack were decided by double digits. We can let that slide on Week 1; it’s just refreshing to have college football back. However, Week 2 brings […]
It’s probably for the best that the Heisman Trust doesn’t award its coveted trophy after Week 1. If social media taught me nothing else, it’s that about 15 players could win the Heisman in early September. Bearing that in mind, the CFB Huddle Heisman Top 10 projection through one week will probably be the most […]
Voting for the Heisman Trophy can be confusing, if not downright frustrating. There are notable whiffs in the Heisman’s history, and more recent results suggest voters are stuck on a very specific profile: quarterback of a title-contending team. Nevertheless, I love tracking the award throughout the season. To that end, CFBHuddle.com will feature a Heisman […]
Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen proposed an intriguing idea that extends five years of eligibility to players who exceed a certain grade point average. As he said to AL.com, the concept is pretty simple at its core: “Instead of punishing guys for doing bad, why not reward guys for doing good?” Dan Mullen’s pitch […]
Dismissed Auburn Tiger Elijah Daniel found a new home over the weekend, heading to Football Championship Subdivision program Youngstown State. With Auburn officially parting ways with a player on one side of the line, the Tigers gain another in Texas transfer Darius James. The former high school All-American and 5-star prospect James enrolled at Auburn […]
UAB president Ray Watts is college football’s Public Enemy No. 1, even after Monday’s announced reinstatement of the Blazer program. But the Blazers commanded national headlines for the last six months, which UAB never had before. With a flood of attention from national media came a commensurate outpouring of support from UAB fans and potential […]
Will Muschamp’s return to Auburn as defensive coordinator has many on the Plains shouting with glee; hopefully Muschamp is among them. But with Muschamp resuming his former post overseeing the Tigers defense, and innovative offensive mind Gus Malzahn guiding things on the other side of the ball, is Auburn’s the nation’s best coaching duo? Fox […]
Quarterback Dak Prescott rode a rocket ship of individual praise congruent with Mississippi State’s unlikely ascent to the No. 1 ranking a season ago. Prescott was the unofficial October Heisman winner, leading the Bulldogs with his dual-threat playmaking ability and compelling bloggers to bestow him nicknames. Losses in three of Mississippi State’s final four downgraded […]
Ben Howland’s name was among the more frequently bounced-around in association with college basketball job openings the last two years. The former Pittsburgh and UCLA head coach seemed like a great fit for former powerhouse DePaul, a program that hit the skids in the last decade or so. And why not? DePaul is situated in […]
We’ve reached the official mid-point of the college football season, which is quite depressing when you think of how quickly the last seven weeks have elapsed. The Heisman Trophy picture is starting to clear up somewhat-and yet, it’s perhaps more muddled than ever before.
The following rankings are not projections, but rather an informal glance into my own Heisman Trophy Top 5 if voting was conducted today.
If Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott was not on your Heisman radar before Saturday, he should be now. He’s certainly popping up on the Heisman Trophy lists of plenty of influential media types.
After Mississippi State surged to a 14-0 lead early against LSU Saturday, the Bulldogs managed to keep the No. 8-ranked LSU Tigers at arm’s length-literally in the case of Dak Prescott’s posterizing stiff-arm on a 56-yard touchdown rush-en route to a 34-29 win.
Bovada released its college football futures for conference and divisional odds on Tuesday, and are plenty of sleepers and surprises.
SEC media days open today in Hoover, Alabama, and the biggest questions hanging over college football’s flagship conference have nothing to do with carriers for its new network.
