SEC Football gets ripped by some in the national media, and what that could mean.

Alabama

When you’re on top, nobody can touch you. That’s the way it was for SEC football for most of the last decade. Any criticism of SEC Football could be answered by “scoreboard”. Their teams were given the benefit of the doubt in the rankings, but when they played you, they usually won. That obviously helped …

North Carolina State is quietly having a strong athletic year in 2015.

Trevor-Lacey-hits-game-winner-at-buzzer.

NC State sometimes gets lost in the shuffle in the ACC. Sometimes they even get lost a bit on Tobacco road, but if you are a NC State fan you’ve had quite a bit to cheer to about over the last few months. Back in 2012 we noted the Wolfpack were one of only three …

Golson

Some are calling it game changer. Some are are trying to temper the enthusiasm. When Everett Golson chose to transfer from Florida State, it was definitely a significant move.  I’m not entirely convinced Golson is a game changer myself yet.
