illini-football-300x214

Beyond Ws and Ls, Q Rating is a severe issue for Illini football.

o-EVERETT-GOLSON-facebook-300x200

Notre Dame football fans are right up there with Ohio State and Michigan as some of the most thin-skinned college football fans in the nation. Every media member that justifiably criticizes Notre Dame football is branded “biased,” and receives hate mail. *Every questionable call that goes against the Fighting Irish verifies the officiating anti-Golden Dome …
