Harbaugh To Michigan? Get Your Man

Dec. 16 ”I got a job, and it wasn’t that bad.” … Jim Harbaugh shouldn’t go back to college. He should go back to Michigan, and there is a difference. Some guys are just better suited for the college coaching world, but Harbaugh – ego and all, personality and all, bristling attitude and all – can succeed on […]

2014 All-Freshman Team

Offensive Freshman of the Year: QB J.T. Barrett, Ohio State  QB J.T. Barrett, Ohio State When Braxton Miller went down with a season-ending injury in August, it looked as if the Buckeyes’ title hopes went on the shelf with him. That No. 4 Ohio State is playoff-bound as the Big Ten champ can be traced directly to the […]

2014 All-Sophomore Team

Offensive Sophomore of the Year: RB James Conner, PittFirst Team QB Jameis Winston, Florida StateQuarterbacks, like coaches and baseball pitchers, are judged by wins and losses. And by that measurement, Winston has been perfect, winning all 26 starts of his Seminole career. Sure, the passing numbers weren’t nearly as impressive as a season ago, especially the 17 interceptions. […]

Marcus Mariota Wins Heisman In Blowout

Fine, so Marcus Mariota isn’t exactly fellow Hawaii native Barack Obama when it comes to public speaking, and he might not be a thrilling quote machine, but he came through when it counted – on the podium as the winner of the 2014 Heisman Trophy. With all of the problems in football at both the […]

Heisman 2014: Marcus Mariota’s Top 5 Plays

By Pete Fiutak The problem with the Heisman vote – especially this year It’s my annual rant, and I’m going to be proactive this time so there’s no Tuesday morning quarterback on January 13th in case there’s a problem. It’s fine that college football has its big awards thing now – go ahead and give away […]

Gary Andersen Leaving & What Gordon Should Do

Dec. 10: ”Thank you. I just had it stuffed.” … From what it sounds like from Barry Alvarez, Gary Andersen apparently liked the idea of beating his head against the wall, and liked the idea of living in Corvallis over Madison, as the head coach of Oregon State rather than try to keep working with a program […]

College Football Playoff: Meet The Teams

Meet The Teams1. ALABAMA The SEC champions closed strong blasting Missouri in dominant fashion to come into the playoff on an eight-game winning streak. While the offense exploded on the Auburn and Missouri Tigers, it sputtered and coughed in a tight battle with the LSU Tigers, needing a late rally and overtime to keep the dream alive. […]

5 Thoughts: Baylor 38, Kansas State 27

E-mail Pete Fiutak Follow me … @PeteFiutak Fiu Thoughts – Baylor has a point about beating TCU and being the real Big 12 champion, but the body of work just isn’t enough. The loss to West Virginia is a killer, but the bigger problem is Buffalo. TCU played Minnesota, Baylor went to Western New York. It might not seem fair, […]

5 Thoughts: Ohio State 59, Wisconsin 0

E-mail Pete Fiutak Follow me … @PeteFiutak Fiu Thoughts – There’s making a point, and there’s making 59 of them. It’ll be a shame if Ohio State is left out of the College Football Playoff, but if it is, the Virginia Tech loss will be the anchor. It might not be fair, and it might not be right, but it’ll […]

5 Thoughts: Florida State 37, Georgia Tech 35

E-mail Pete Fiutak Follow me … @PeteFiutak Fiu Thoughts – Of course Florida State is going to make this difficult. Of course. The Seminoles could’ve made it so easy to make a definitive statement – even holding on to a nine-point lead late – but this is how they roll. Even with all of the struggles, no way, no how, […]

5 Thoughts: Alabama 42, Missouri 13

Follow me … @PeteFiutak Fiu Thoughts – Alabama just made it extremely easy on the playoff committee. All thoughts of the SEC not being in the inaugural playoff went bye-bye with the Tide win, and now it’s Oregon and Alabama in the top two in some form. Ducks in Pasadena, Crimson Tide in New Orleans. Easy peasy. Even […]

5 Thoughts: TCU 55, Iowa State 3

Follow me … @PeteFiutak Fiu Thoughts – That’s two. Oregon has earned its spot into the playoff with its dominant performance against Arizona in the Pac-12 championship, and now TCU has to be in based on the CFP committee’s rankings. No, the Big 12 isn’t that great, and no, TCU doesn’t have the overall schedule or body of […]

5 Thoughts: Oregon 51, Arizona 13

Fiu Thoughts – 627 yards of total offense while holding Arizona to 199 yards until the final meaningless play. It doesn’t matter whether or not Oregon is the No. 1 team in the nation, but it looked the part. Get ready College Football Playoff, because this isn’t the Duck team of past seasons. This version doesn’t […]
