College football cupcakes

John Coon of Athlonsports.com has ranked the ten most embarrassing “cupcake” or mismatch games of the upcoming 2018 season. And this doesn’t even include Incarnate Word vs. New Mexico. Wouldn’t it be great if one of these teams pulled an upset? Schedule up if you want to go to the playoff!

Silly Scheduling

We’re big college football fans and we love a good Saturday of big-time action. We were really excited about tomorrow knowing that four games pitting Top-25 teams against each other were on tap. Then we looked at the schedule and realized they are all scheduled to be televised at virtually the same time. #13 Auburn vs. #3 Clemson begins at 7:00 PM EST, then at 7:30 #5 Oklahoma and #2 Ohio State square off as do #24 Notre Dame and #15 Georgia. One hour later the matchup between #14 Stanford and #6 USC begins. Was there no way to space these out any better? Or is this a case of network greed for prime time advertising winning out over what’s best for the fans?

College football rankings

Are you a fan of college football? How could you not be? You’ve probably already seen the first College Football Playoff rankings and may be wondering about some of the picks. (Clemson over Michigan, one-loss Texas A&M over undefeated Washington), but if you have questions, SB Nation has the answers. Go (insert school nickname here)!

What more could a sports fan want?

The Cubs and the Indians in the World Series. College football. NFL. Hockey season has started and so has the NBA. It’s that magical time of year when the four major sports seasons collide in spectacular fashion, if only of for one more day. Savor it, sports fans. It is like the Hailey’s comet of fandom!

How does this sound?

Are you one of the legions of fans who feel that the current NCAA Football format of a four-team playoff doesn’t go far enough? There are several teams that will be left out of the playoff who may very well be better than some of the four that will be in. Here is a good take on the situation, and a solution we would love to see implemented.

Ohio State or Oregon?

Who will it be? Tonight’s NCAA Football National Championship game is expected to be the most-watched ever. For all you need to know about the big game, go here.

Notre Dame – Michigan rivalry comes to an end

We guess everything changes. The Big Ten has 13 teams, (or is it 14? who knows?). A few years ago, TCU played in the Rose Bowl. But one constant, (at least pretty constant) since 1977 was that early in the college football season you could count on one of the greatest games and rivalries of the season either in South Bend or Ann Arbor. And, after tomorrow’s game, that ends for the foreseeable future. It’s a shame. Here is a terrific article about The Game and it’s history by SI.com’s Michael Rosenberg. Well, at least the final game will be played in the afternoon sun on the hallowed grass field at Notre Dame stadium. Oh…wait.

College Football is finally back!

We love the start of the college football season. The NFL, coming this week, isn’t bad either. This University of Miami fan knows how to represent his team. New trend starting across the country? Let’s see who can match it!
