Jameis Winston Turning Pro: It Was Interesting

And thus ends one of the most amazing and controversial careers in the history of college football. The buzz kicked in around Jameis Winston during the 2013 spring game, when he made big play after big play, had the attitude of a crusty veteran mixed in with the excitement of a new starter, making it obvious […]

Could Marcus Mariota Be The All-Time Greatest QB?

My first thought when this was asked was, “you’ve GOT to be kidding.” Mariota is a legend because he’s a Heisman winner, but the best college quarterback of all-time? It’s actually not quite as crazy as it seems on the surface. Talent-wise, he might turn out to be a Hall of Fame NFL star, but he […]

Is Urban Meyer The Top Coach?

How do you argue against it? If he’s not the No. 1 guy right now, he’s No. 1A, and while he might not have Nick Saban’s national title count quite yet, he appears destined to get there. Swooning Michigan fans might argue this, and Florida fans might bristle, but if you could pick any one coaches […]

Oregon’s Biggest Strengths

1. Passing efficiencyYes, Ohio State is No. 4 in the nation in pass efficiency defense, and yes, the coaching staff has plenty of time to come up with something special for the Marcus Mariota, but it still might not matter.

Ohio State’s Biggest Strengths

1. Offensive balanceThe Buckeyes are almost impossible to defend because they do just about everything right. They’re so proficient on the line and so consistently strong running the ball that they can take chances and shots downfield whenever they want to, knowing that the ground game will always be there for 5.8 yards per pop. OSU […]

Oregon Players To Watch

5. S Erick Dargan, Sr.The 5-11, 210-pound veteran safety was turning in a nice career before becoming a bigger part of the defense in his final campaign.

The 6-1, 199-pounder averaged 15 yards per catch last season, but turned into even more of a home-run […]

Oregon’s Three Biggest Keys

1. Be OregonOhio State is going to come out with a ton of fire and emotion. It’s going to try to be physical, it’s going to try to intimidate, and it’s going to try to come out hot from the start and take the momentum right away. No matter what happens, and no matter how successful […]

Ohio State’s Three Biggest Keys

1. Pass rush, pass rush, pass rushIt’s far easier said than done against an Oregon offense that allowed just 18 sacks on the year, but Ohio State can’t let Marcus Mariota roam free and be Marcus Mariota. He gets the ball out of his hands in a hurry, and the offense is designed to keep defenses […]

By Crowley Sullivan So, Michigan Men are dancing in the streets in Ann Arbor. That groovy deli that starts with a Z – it’s preparing a new menu item that will be named after the newest conquering hero. Rich Eisen has already begun to be more obnoxious than he normally is about his status as […]

Jan. 2 Valero Alamo Bowl UCLA 40, Kansas State 35 And You Care Because … UCLA needed a big late play to avoid a massive collapse, and it got it as Paul Perkins tore off a 67–yard run to put the game away – sort of. His dash gave the Bruins a late 12-point lead, but as was […]
