Are You Ready For Some Football, College Football that is? 2015 Edition

It is the time of year in New York where simply commuting into Manhattan leaves one dripping with sweat. Fortunately, the commuter railroad known as the LIRR, sees fit to lower the AC to a cool 80 degrees; when the AC is working. The subway tunnels remind me of a sauna combined with the body odor of Jerry’s BMW. It is the time of year where I long for the bitter cold we experienced in Maryland or Northern Illinois. That is how I know that I am insane and that college football is right around the corner. It is simply not a normal thing to wish summer to be over so that the Quest may continue. But that is who I am.

Things have not been quiet at College Football Quest headquarters. … Read More »

We Get Questions….Why only 4 games?

You are only going to 4 per year. That is going to take forever. Why don’t you speed it up? You can hit 10 per year easy.


Ohio State 42 Oregon 20

Well, the Ohio State Buckeyes are kings of the college football world. In a game that the Buckeyes won 42-20, it was a game that believe it or not, was not as close as that 22 point victory would have you believe. The Buckeyes whipped the Ducks in every phase of this game and were most dominant on the offensive and defensive lines. If not for the OSU -3 turnover margin, this game would have been over far sooner.

As regular readers of this site know, I am no fan of the Buckeyes and Urban Meyer. But it is very hard to deny that this was a monumental achievement for both the players and their coach. To lose quarterbacks in the manner in which they did, beat an Alabama team widely believed … Read More »


2014 Predictions Reviewed

As promised, I will review my preseason picks in an effort to provide you with evidence that I have absolutely no idea what I am talking about! This review will most likely be an utter embarrassment, but unlike the other preseason picks that fade into oblivion, I think I owe it to myself and others to see how I did. So without further ado…

SEC
In the SEC East, I missed on Missouri again. That is two years in a row the Tigers have surprised me by winning the East. In the West, I had Alabama (along with the rest of the world) and undersold the Mississippi schools just a bit. Everything else was not too far off and I was spot on with the bottom of each division, for whatever that is worth.

The Week that Was – Recap of Week 6 2014

Posted by Jarrett in Jarrett Singer's Blog. No Comments

7th October

Posted: October 7, 2014

A look back at Week 6 of the college football season.

Well, Week 6 certainly was a crazy one with a bunch of upsets, great games, awful calls, etc. The powers that be need to find a way to spread these games out so we do not have a bunch of dud weeks followed by this, but it certainly was a great day to be plopped onto the couch for 14 hours.

1. The weekend got off to a fast start Thursday night with the Arizona Wildcats moving to 5-0 with an upset of the Oregon Ducks. I had a feeling the Ducks may be in trouble due to their defensive lapses and vegas setting an over under of 77, so I said…. Oregon’s defense has been vulnerable and Arizona is scoring points averaging 42 a game. … Read More »

Week 6 2014 Preview – Pondering the Future

Posted by Jarrett in Jarrett Singer's Blog. No Comments

1st October

Posted: October 1, 2014

Random thoughts on the upcoming weekend of college football.

Finally a Saturday slate of games worthy of 12 hours on the couch. We have suffered through some bad weekends but this weekend should make up for it. There are 6 games between Top 25 teams, so let’s get right to it.

1. The weekend gets going Thursday night with 5-0 Arizona traveling to Eugene to face the also unbeaten Oregon Ducks. Oregon’s defense has been vulnerable and Arizona is scoring points averaging 42 a game. They are going to need to at least match that if they hope to pull off the upset as they did last year winning 42-16. Over under on this game is 77 so points should come early and often. So look for a 10-3 halftime score.

2. The SEC has … Read More »


The Week that Was – Recap of Week 5 2014

Posted: September 30, 2014

A look back at Week 5 of the college football season.

1. I was high on UCLA entering the season, picking them to go to the playoff. I seriously reconsidered after seeing their first two games of the year. But Thursday night was a statement win. Perhaps I was too early to write them off. The next two weeks will tell with Utah and Oregon ahead. Mr. Hundley is going to need to play like he did Thursday for the Bruins. He is capable of it, so the Rose Bowl should be excited if it is unbeaten Oregon versus unbeaten UCLA.

2. Florida State struggled against NC State and giving up 41 to the Wolfpack does not seem like a good thing, but I am not off the Seminoles making the playoff. … Read More »

The Week that Was – Recap of Week 4 2014

Posted by Jarrett in Jarrett Singer's Blog. No Comments

23rd September

Posted: September 23, 2014

A look back at Week 4 of the college football season.

I will admit that I did not see very much college football this weekend. My job took me to Denmark over the weekend and while you can generally find NFL football in Copenhagen, college football is impossible. I did manage to watch the Gators not be able to play offense or defense but that is about it.

1. The dedication award goes to me. I did the impossible and was able to watch the Gators. This was an epic quest that had me sitting behind the reception desk at my hotel, using an impossibly slow WiFi connection, slingbox, VPN, and iPad to watch the Gators ineptitude. That game should have been 72-0. Alabama alone kept Florida in this game. If Florida … Read More »
