3 Things Clemson must do to beat Georgia

georgia_clemson_bulldogs_tigers_2003

First off, really happy for my man @HokieSmash. He’s the only North Dakota State fan I know, and earlier in the week on our podcast he said NDSU could upset Kansas St.  Congrats sir! By the way anyone that schedules Boise St. or a top 10 FCS school is insane. Good FCS teams, are well coached …

After loss to South Carolina, North Carolina is who we thought they were.

UNC_Ebron

So North Carolina got beat 27-10 to South Carolina. It wasn’t a particularly close game either. What I don’t understand is the gross generalizations that come from a game like this. The Tar Heels are awful, ACC football is awful. It’s more of the same year after year. Look this game doesn’t change anything about …

Is 2013 finally the year Miami Hurricane’s football starts turning the corner?

Miami3

When the Miami Hurricanes joined the ACC in 2004, John Swofford had dreams of epic Florida State and Miami battles. The Hurricanes were going to be one of the ACC’s flagship football schools. It never happened. Since the Miami has been in the ACC, Wake Forest has won an ACC Title. Virginia Tech has 4 …

Clemson must prove LSU win wasn’t a fluke by beating Georgia.

Swinney

When you are the Clemson Tigers and Dabo Swinney, each big non-conference game is like audition. 2 years ago Clemson won the ACC, but got humiliated by West Virginia in the Orange Bowl. In many ways the luster of winning the 2011 ACC, was tarnished. Last year’s season opening win over, at the time, a fringe …

Thankfully, the NCAA comes to it’s senses regarding eligibility of ex-Marine.

Steven-Rhodes-424

2 days ago I was one of many who criticized the NCAA for ruling that ex-Marine Steven Rhodes was ineligible to play this year due to his participation in what amounted to intramural football games while he served this country. Thankfully the NCAA came to it’s senses in short order, no doubt due to the …

Has the NCAA lost it’s mind… again?

American Flag

Just when you think the NCAA can’t come with anymore bizarre or inconsistent rulings they come up with another embarrassingly silly one. This time they are denying an ex Marine Steven Rhodes the opportunity to play at Middle Tennessee and forcing him to sit out a year. Here is the short version of the story …

Other conferences need to stop complaining about SEC football dominance and do something about it.

alabama-auburn

Recently yahoo sports had an article Can Someone, anyone please take down the SEC?  I think it’s a sentiment most of us that aren’t fans of SEC schools probably share. I know I wouldn’t mind someone else win the national title. It is getting a little tiresome. 7 Straight national football titles and Alabama looks primed …

A season ending pre-season college football top 25

BCSThrophy

One thing I don’t see much of during the pre-season when rankings are made is what record the teams will finish with. Sure you might you have a pre-season top 10 team, but will they end up there? Schedules are a big factor here… 1. Alabama (11-1) 7-1 The SEC is the only conference in …
