twitimage_400x400

Legendary broadcaster Brent Musburger doesn’t just “get it.” He absolutely knocked it out of the park on this one. Once again this year, College Football is trying desperately to claim New Year’s Eve as it’s day, by holding the Final Four playoff games on December 31st. Once again, it’s not going happen, and the ratings …

You could make it in the big leagues someday, kid. You got talent I tells ya, and moxie too, kid. Those two old timey borscht beltisms could apply to both the Northwestern and Wisconsin football teams in 2016.

There were no notable changes in the Week 7 AP poll, so there isn’t much to talk about in that regard. What will probably generate interest are all the new squads emerging at the bottom. P.J. Fleck’s team, the Western Michigan Broncos finally entered the Top 25, falling at number 24, which didn’t really upset …

badgers

Michigan State didn’t just lose to Wisconsin.

1. Alabama – No dispute here. They played amazing, even if they did play an over-ranked USC squad. Seems like everyone but the pollsters knew USC was a year away from being a highly ranked team. ‘Bama proced it. 2. Florida State – Not sure why people see Clemson at number two, but after watching …

SEC Spotlight

index

As I watched the opening weekend of college football unfold, one thing really stuck out: the SEC is top heavy.  Alabama is once again the team to beat and the others fall in line somewhere beneath them.  The shocking revelation was just how far down some of the other teams are in comparison to ‘Bama. …
