Owls lead 7-3 with 1:32 remaining in the first. #WitnessKSU #Believe […]
The College Football Playoff introduced a new competition-within-the-competition last season, with the best of the Group of 5 jockeying for the automatic berth into one of the New Year’s bowl games. The inaugural Group of 5 race went right down to the wire, and the 2015 installment promises more potential for fireworks. Click the page […]
Linebacker Bobby Wagner is rumored to have signed a $43 million contract extension with the Seattle Seahawks late Saturday, which makes him the NFL’s highest-paid player at his position. Not a bad deal for a former 2-star recruit. Bobby Wagner landed at Utah State from Colony High School in Ontario, California, where he garnered minimal […]
LAS VEGAS – No surprise out of the Mountain West preseason media poll: defending conference champion Boise State is an overwhelming favorite to repeat in its division. Voters tabbed the Broncos atop the Mountain Division in the poll, released Tuesday at the opening of Mountain West media days. They’re projected to face West Division favorite […]
Second-year Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong faces a bit of a quandary. He has to rebuild in order to get Texas back to the level to which it’s accustomed, competing for Big 12 and national championships. At the same time, Texas doesn’t have a fan base or boosters with the patience to wait for […]
On Monday, CFBHuddle.com unveiled its picks for the preseason Group of Five All-American team. It’s the defense and special teams turn, and one thing is abundantly clear: I think highly of the defenses at Boise State, Louisiana Tech and Utah State. Not coincidentally, all three are teams capable of competing for their respective conference championships, […]
In Ohio State’s three-man quarterback race, each Buckeye has played a unique role. Cardale Jones, the breakout star of the College Football Playoff, is the brash and exuberant one, soaking in the limelight with (late) April Fools jokes and high-profile Twitter beefs. Braxton Miller is the veteran whose unfortunate injury had him seemingly destined to […]
Given recent football offseasons have been marred with headlines of arrests, the words “domestic violence” should make some instinctively recoil. However, the arrest of Ole Miss star offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil appears layered, based on initial reports. This situation is no less troubling than any other instance of domestic violence, as Laremy Tunsil was reportedly […]
Earlier today on TodaysU.com, I pointed to Alabama offensive line coach Mario Cristobal as standing on the cusp of being college football’s It Man once head coaching vacancies open at season’s end. A proven winner at FIU and an outstanding recruiter for Alabama, that Cristobal is entering his third season as an assistant and not […]
Better late than never, it’s Friday Q&A, where yours truly takes on the important questions like: How would Gronk fare in a case race? Rob Gronkowski, the former Arizona Wildcats standout turned New England Patriots star, seems like the ideal party mate. Sadly, Gronk arrived at Arizona one year after I graduated, so I have […]
The only thing more surprising than longtime Oregon State head coach Mike Riley leaving for the vacancy at Nebraska last week is the Beavers attracting Gary Andersen from Wisconsin Wednesday. First allusions to a shocking hire came from MGoBlog, and-unlike a Chuck Johnson report-the end result did indeed live up to its build. Hearing that […]
The long wait is over. Week 1 of the 2014 college football season is here, and not a moment too soon.
Tennessee fans have every right to be excited for the 2014 season and beyond—Butch Jones has created a new energy in Knoxville, starting the much-needed revival the Volunteers have desperately cried out for since the early 2000s. There are potential stars and NFL draft picks all over the roster, with plenty more to come if […]
It’s a quarterback’s game. Star running backs are obsolete. Yada yada yada. These are the prevailing narratives in today’s football landscape, driven primarily by NFL-focused outlets.
