WEEK 4—-All eyes on SEC this weekend

A LOOK BACK AT WEEK THREE Two teams really impressed me last weekend.   The first was Mississippi State’s dominance of LSU.   The Bulldogs dominated a sloppy Tiger bunch, in front of 60,000 cowbell ringing fans.   The 37-7 win moved the Bulldogs to 3-0.   It was only the second win in the last 18 games in this series.   [ . . read more . . ]

WEEK 3—-Can Clemson stop Lamar Jackson

A LOOK BACK AT WEEK TWO For the second week in a row, it was a hurricane that dominated news throughout the college football world.   Irma smacked the state of Florida, forcing the cancellation of five games.   Four top 25 teams, Florida State, Miami of Florida, South Florida and Florida all had games canceled.   Irma has already [ . . read more . . ]

WEEK 2—Can it top week one?

A LOOK BACK AT WEEK ONE I can’t remember an opening week of college football, that had so many twists and turns.   The weekend was filled with stunning upsets and remarkable late game heroics.   I want to start with David slaying Goliath.   The FCS did it again.   Liberty defeated Baylor 48-45 in Mark Rhule’s debut [ . . read more . . ]

2017 PAC 12 PREVIEW

Quarterbacks will be the focus of the PAC 12 this season.   The conference is loaded with elite talent at the position.   I project four quarterbacks to be taken early in the NFL draft and a few others potentially joining them later in the draft.   It will be interesting to see who might come out early.    I think the PAC 12 is [ . . read more . . ]

WEEK 1—-Are you ready for some football?

The wait is finally over.   Kickoff to the 2017 college football season will ramp up this weekend.   We have a gigantic matchup in primetime Saturday night, as #1 Alabama will meet #3 Florida State.    Two other top 25 battles will occur.   #21 Virginia Tech will battle #22 West Virginia in Washington D.C.   #11 Michigan [ . . read more . . ]

2017 SEC PREVIEW

The SEC should once again be one of, if not the most dominant conference in college football. The conference that has produced eight out of the last eleven national champions will once again be the home to incredible football this fall. The SEC features some of the nation’s most talented running backs, offensive lines, defensive units, [ . . read more . . ]

2017 BIG TEN PREVIEW

This should be an outstanding conference this season.   The Big Ten features some of the top running backs in the country.   Six running backs return who topped the 1,000 yard mark last fall.   Penn State’s Saquon Barkley, gets my vote as the top back in the nation!   I also believe Barkley is a frontrunner for the Heisman [ . . read more . . ]

2017 ACC PREVIEW

Last season I told you that the ACC was the top conference in the FBS.   Looking back, I was right as the ACC sent eleven teams to bowl games.   An 8-3 mark in the bowl games, and a national championship proved my point.   This year, I expect a much different result.   The loss of several quarterbacks who left early for the NFL [ . . read more . . ]

2017 BIG 12 PREVIEW

Since the NCAA adopted the new college football playoff (CFP) in 2014, only one BIG 12 team has been involved in the four team playoff.    This year, as many as three teams have a distinct chance to crack the top four.   Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas should finish with double-digit wins, forcing a big debate for the [ . . read more . . ]
