The NFL Draft Combine Participants list came out this morning. For the uninitiated, the Combine is where players get invited to do a series of drills to show off to the 32 NFL scouts in attendance just what they’re made of. The … Continue reading There is Only One Duck Invited to the Combine…
The lifeblood of college football revolves around middle-aged men convincing 17 year-old kids to join their team; we just happen to call it recruitment. The biggest recruiting holiday of the year, National Signing Day, just occurred on Wednesday. Nearly every player in the Top 100 signs their letters of intent (essentially, their pledges) on this day and people can understand how the recruiting classes will look.
Let’s take a look at the Pac-12 South in inverse rankings (according to 247.com composite rankings).
The Pac-12 released their schedules about a week and a half ago. A hallmark of offseason banter is dissecting schedules to determine how difficult a season might be for any one team. When does a team get their bye week? … Continue reading Breaking Down Pac-12 Schedules: The North

When I saw Mike Williams catch that incredible ball on the same play Alabama got a fifteen yard penalty, I stood up out of my seat.

I ran out of time yesterday to fill out the second two games, so here you go: Miami Dolphins @ Pittsburgh Steelers Miami started the year going 1-4 with their lone win over the lowly Browns. Coincidentally, a win against the Steelers started a six game winning streak. A loss against the Ravens broke up that streak, which heralded three wins in a row leaving the Dolphins at ten wins. What’s more remarkable is that the Dolphins lost their starting quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, towards the end of the season and were still able to look competitive. Pittsburgh started the season … Continue reading It’s Still Wildcard Week!
College football is over (save for one game) and we are going headfirst into the NFL Postseason. While we have teams that have been in the driver’s seat for most of the season, there has been no shortage of excitement and weeks 16 and 17 delivered the drama all fans love to see.
