Bowl Mania: Previewing Every College Football Matchup

Gildan New Mexico Bowl (Albuquerque) Temple (8-4) vs. Wyoming (8-4) This is a surprisingly strong game to open the bowl season. These are both legitimately “good” teams. I wish them well. Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Boise) Ohio (9-4) vs. Utah State (7-5) This game is best known for drawing the ire of a punter. As […]

BCS Top 25 (Week 15): The Game of The Century, Part II

1. LSU It is not much of a stretch to say that LSU should have been losing 21-0 to Georgia in the SEC Championship. When Tyrann Mathieu returned a punt for a touchdown to make it 10-7, I knew Georgia was done. The fact that the Tigers went on to win 42-10 is a testament […]

The BCS Top 25 (Week 11): LSU Reigns, ‘Bama Falls to No. 3

1. LSU The Game of The Century? Probably not. It was definitely a classic though. Marquis Maze might beg to differ, but I was riveted. 2. Oklahoma State If you combined LSU-Alabama and Oklahoma State-Kansas State, you would have had an average football game. 3. Alabama We can’t possibly have a rematch in the BCS […]

College Football Stock Market: All In On Boise State

Boise State Right now the safest bet in college football is Boise State. If you are looking for a sure thing, bet Boise State. They have the best shot at finishing undefeated among the top five teams. The combined record of their final five opponents is 17-20. Here is another great reason why Boise could […]

The BCS Top 25 (Week 10): Houston, Case Keenum at No. 13

1. LSU 2. Alabama How perfectly has this matchup been set up this season? At the beginning of the season, the SEC West emerged as the country’s most difficult division. These two teams then almost immediately separated themselves from the rest of the country. It was apparent early on that they were the class of […]

The BCS Top 25 (Week 9): Clemson Roars into Top 5

1. LSU IT. IS. ON.  We’ve been circling this game for weeks (months?), and now there is nothing in the way of the epic 1 vs. 2 matchup between LSU and Alabama. The Bayou Bengals haven’t just dominated teams this season, they’ve demoralized them. Even though they’ve played an impressive selection of schools that includes […]

College Football Stock Market: Alabama is a Good Buy

With the unveiling of the BCS rankings, I have decided to unveil the first ever Sports of Boston stock market. Each week I am going to take a look at a handful of teams and evaluate whether or not you should buy into the team or sell. Here’s a few factors that go into buying […]

The BCS Top 25 (Week 8): Cowboys Sitting at No. 4.

Quick note: with the release of the BCS rankings this week, the Top 25 wrap-up will be based on those rankings from here on out. The biggest change will be my shift from complaining about stupid voters to complaining about flawed algorithms. Let’s get to it.

The AP Top 25 (Week 7): Kansas State Sneaks Up Rankings

1. LSU (40) How dare they give up points to the then-17th ranked Florida Gators. I was once again disappointed that they did not get the shutout. With that said, they seem like they’re playing with more than 11 defenders. Their defense is awesome, and I mean that in the most literal sense. 2. Alabama […]

The AP Top 25 (Week 6): Wisconsin Jumps into the Top 5

1. LSU (40) I was legitimately disappointed that LSU couldn’t hold on to the shutout this week. Kentucky never had a chance against them. Assuming they keep winning, the Tigers’ matchup with Alabama looks like it will be the game of the season. LSU doesn’t have an easy schedule in the interim though, with games […]

College Football: Boise State Re-Aligning To Nowhere

Now that the conference carousel has stopped (for this season), there appears to be a clear picture of which schools were pursued and considered for inclusion in BCS conferences. This obviously includes schools that are currently in BCS conferences, but also included surprises like the service academies and decent Conference USA schools (East Carolina? Really […]

The AP Top 25 (Week 5): LSU Claims Top Spot

1. LSU (42) Not even one week can go by without LSU being involved in a rankings flip-flop with another winning team. It was justified this week though. Their defense is truly terrifying, and their team speed causes problems all over the place. I still have trouble believing Les Miles can win another BCS Championship, […]

The AP Top 25: Week 4, Boise State’s Smooth, Clemson Hot

1. Oklahoma (37) With the win over Florida State, Oklahoma took three first place votes each from Alabama and LSU. They also looked like a team that could win the BCS Championship. Great analyst that I am, I believe they are a really good football team. 2. LSU (14) After their win over Mississippi State […]

The AP Top 25: Week 3, Auburn and Arizona State Climb in

1. Oklahoma (32) Without a game this week, the Sooners became the first school to be ranked No. 1 in 100 AP polls. That achievement has very little bearing on this year’s team, but it impressive nonetheless. Good for them. They have a massive game at Florida State Saturday, and with a win they could […]

College Football Edition: Who Should Teams be Thankful For?

As we all prepare to sit around the dinner tables with our families and feast on lots of turkey and stuffing, we as people have a lot to be thankful for. Whether it may be our job, our car, our wife, our husband, our kids, etc., we have at least one thing to be thankful […]
