Bowl Game Breakdown: Non-BCS Edition

New Mexico Bowl Temple (8-4) vs. Wyoming (8-4) Where:  Albuquerque, New Mexico When:  December 17 Why Watch:  Both of these teams were lucky to get a win about three years ago, both teams have coaches on the rise and should make for an entertaining game.  In 2009 Wyoming had one of the better bowl wins … Continue reading

College Football Rankings (Week 15)

1. LSU (13-0) – Wow, I was wrong about LSU losing to Georgia… though it looked like they would in the first half the way their offense had been playing.  In my opinion Georgia shot themselves in the foot early, but LSU had a terrific second half and are obviously worthy of playing for the … Continue reading

Take Your Pick: Week 11

What a week of football. Last weekend the Ravens blew it against the Seahawks while the Eagles disappointed yet again, this time against the John Skelton led Cardinals. This week there seems to be several upsets in store, potentially even from the Washington Redskins. Otherwise I’m not 100% what will go down, but I feel … Continue reading

College Football Power Rankings (Week 12)

1. LSU (10-0) – LSU had a scary game early against Western Kentucky, but blew them out in the second half.  With games against Arkansas and a likely SEC championship game against Georgia the rest of the season isn’t a cake walk.

Take Your Pick: Week 9

The season is halfway over now and it has been a wild one. This week the Bills are actually favored over the Jets and the Colts are 6.5 point underdogs at home. There have been many other surprises this year but these two probably top the list for this week. Last week was fairly straightforward … Continue reading

College Football Power Rankings (Week 10)

Week 10 Rankings 1. LSU (8-0) – The Tigers’ defense knows how to make big plays, and is their best method of scoring.  They have a more balanced offense than Alabama, but lack the home run threat Bama has in Trent Richardson.  Why do I keep comparing these two teams?  Because they play each other … Continue reading

Take Your Pick: Week 8

This is quite a boring weekend of football. Outside of the NFC East showdown between the Eagles-Dallas and the Patriots-Steelers game, there aren’t very many competitive games. Last week I caught some flack over my selection abilities, but I maintain my picks are good. Better in fact than certain professional analysts like Chris Mortensen. So, … Continue reading
