Welcome to Black Friday, the unofficial inspiration for such dystopian fiction as the Mad Max series or The Purge. America’s chaser for a day spent gorging itself on food is a day manically chasing discounts on products. No, you haven’t stumbled upon an anti-consumerist manifesto; this special, Black Friday edition of the CFB Huddle Saturday […]
It’s rather ridiculous, the importance our society places on sports. I felt helpless as reports of the horrific terrorist attacks carried out Friday in Paris began to surface. I still do. I also couldn’t shake the feeling that spending Saturday watching and writing about college football as if it anything more than a frivolous endeavor […]
College football 2015 is in its stretch run, with just three full weeks remaining. The College Football Playoff picture isn’t quite yet taking an actual shape. As last week’s upheaval proved, fluidity defines the current state, and one Saturday can throw everything we think we know into flux. Saturday’s lineup presents the possibility of more […]
I love this sport. It never ceases to amaze me how just about every Saturday in the fall, I’m left incredulous by at least one moment, game or performance. So much of the residual activity surrounding college football is exhausting. Some NCAA regulations are archaic, the modern concept of amateurism evolves at a glacial pace […]
Happy Halloween and welcome to Week 9 of the college football season. To celebrate the intersection of my favorite sport with one of my favorite holidays, I employed the Silver Shamrock Company to manufacture one college football team’s helmets. Alternate uniforms may be passe, but an alternate helmet that turns wearers’ heads into snakes and […]
Just when you think you have it all figured out… College football Week 8 wasn’t exactly the most intriguing offering of games this season, but if you’ve followed the sport for any length of time, that should tell you to expect chaos. And chaos is exactly what we got. Playoff hopefuls Florida State and Utah […]
When evaluating the current state of Alabama football, I can’t help but think of Kanye’s 2005 single, “Diamonds of Sierra Leone.” The above may be the quintessential introduction to Four Downs. First Down: Alabama Football Through Kanye Let’s run a particularly germane portion through the CFB Huddle Genius for translation: People askin’ me if I’m […]
In the ol’ Book of Football Cliches is an entry dedicated to “Nothing in the playbook for third-and-whatever.” The actual distance from which this cliche can be accurately invoked is ambiguous, but is essentially anything behind the original line of scrimmage. Or, if you’re Jesse Palmer, it’s third-and-California. (I kid because I love, Jess. Let’s […]
Floyd Mayweather’s long-anticipated title fight against Manny Pacquiao dominated sports headlines a week ago, so it’s only fitting that it kicks off this week’s Q&A session. The bellyaching that ensued after Floyd Mayweather fought a prototypical Floyd Mayweather fight made our first question easy to answer. If you’d like your topic addressed in Q&A, tweet […]
The following rankings are not projections, but rather an informal glance into my own Heisman Trophy Top 5 if voting was conducted today.
Few teams have endured quite as wretched a 3-game stretch as Washington State football.
If you’re looking for some invaluable last-second betting advice for tomorrow’s slate of college football games, then you’ve come to the right place.
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.
Hollywood is home big and often shattered dreams, but nowhere do the stars who find success shine brighter. Thus, Hollywood is a fitting backdrop for the unofficial beginning of the college football season, with Pac-12 media days kicking off Wednesday at Paramount Studios.
