Are You Not Entertained? Sugar Bowl

Wow… I think we may have hit a record for “wishes granted” this week. Here’s the tale of the tape… Jeff A repeat of last year’s Rose Bowl – The Buckeyes came out firing, particularly with the “no huddle” wrinkle on first downs. A beautiful thing… Foot on the gas pedal – Well, at least […]

What Do You Want To See? Sugar Bowl

Jeff A repeat of last year’s Rose Bowl – Shake things up with the playbook, catch them off guard, but above all, be in attack mode from start to finish. Foot on the gas pedal – After Saturday’s embarrassment for the Big Ten, we need to remind the nation that we are not the lousy […]

Know your enemy: Arkansas edition

If you’re not familiar with Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino, then don’t feel bad, because you’re not alone.  While there are many casual college football fans who won’t be knowledgeable about Petrino’s history, the truth is that the basics of that history make it unlikely that even those around him get to know him that […]

Across the Web: Arkansas

We are indeed blessed  to be joined by the guys from SBN’s Arkansas Expats for the last edition of this year’s blogger exchange.  Check out our thoughts on their meticulous interrogation over here: 1) With all the suspension news in Columbus, what’s your take on the NCAA’s decision to let these guys play? Well, objectively […]

Get Excited: Sugar Bowl

Yeah, we know- the Big Ten had a horrible day, going 0-5 in games where they were all underdogs, and 0-3 to the mighty SEC. But, while it’s cool to rep our conference, we’re not ones to go around shouting “Big Ten” when Illinois wins or when Michigan beats Florida to send Lloyd out a […]

Graphic Content: Sugar Bowl

It’s been a while since we’ve been blessed by our friend Kevin’s work, but since you all got shiny new computers and stuff for Christmas, he decided to provide us all with something to help get excited about the big doin’s in the Big Easy:

More is better… but at what cost?

ESPN has a great piece about the oversigning phenomenon in college football; for example having 20 scholarships, but getting commitments from more than 20 incoming students and either realizing the recruit won’t make it through admissions, or finding a way to open up a scholarship from a player currently on the roster. Check out the […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Into The Holiday Spirit

Post […]

The Week That Were: 11.27.10

Here’s the soundtrack for this week’s journey through the recent past. It’s from one of my favorite artists, and the greatest Thanksgiving movie ever ANDIWILLFIGHTYOUIFYOUDISAGREE. Ahem. Although I usually don’t take requests, I almost made an exception for Coach Rodriguez. What a great week of football- three days worth of collegiate goodness, interspersed with some […]

The Week That Were: 9.25.10

This week’s commentary is brought to you by my inner grumpy old man: One comment on Eastern Michigan, since all we do is talk Buckeyes here. Throughout the game I was having Dennis Green “They are who we thought they were” flashbacks, although not in ways that were complementary. Ok, let’s get our weekly dose […]

The Week That Were: 9.19.09

previously on TWTW… Here’s the soundtrack for today’s journey in the past. And no, unlike some people, it’s not really Journey. Arrr, yesterday’s games fell on the national holiday o’ “Talk Like a Pirate Day“. Should we be surprised, then, that the upset o’ the day happened at a place whar people show up in […]

If you can read this, you're not from an SEC state

UPDATE – Please read this post c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y…it discusses the educational systems of each state, and how well the states educate (or don’t educate) their young minds.  It has deep meaning that could possibly explain the stupid, inbred minds which are unable to comprehend simple matters (in other words, southerners).  If you are a fan of […]
