I will chose this spot to say how truly impressed I am with what Notre Dame does on football weekends. The hospitality and friendliness of the Notre Dame staff was truly incredible.

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 2 2014

Posted: September 9, 2014

1. I thought I was off to a good week, with the UTSA Roadrunners taking the Arizona Wildcats to the wire as I expected. Arizona was fortunate to get the win in this game. I still am waiting to understand how UTSA got this game at home.

2. The Pitt Panthers can run the ball…very well. They will be a force in the ACC Coastal, especially since North Carolina is not as good as I thought, at least at this point in the season. The Coastal is clearly the step sister to the Atlantic, but Pitt will make noise if they continue to run the ball this well.

3. The Cornhuskers got very lucky to beat McNeese State. If only the Cowboys could tackle with their arms instead of shoulders, that game was in … Read More »

Week 2 2014 Preview – Pondering the Future

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

4th September

Posted: September 4, 2014

Random thoughts on the upcoming weekend of college football.

1. The week gets off to a Thursday start with Arizona at UTSA. First, is there a better nickname in college sports than the Roadrunners, maybe only Coastal Carolina (google it). Second, this game is being played at UTSA. How did they manage to get Arizona to come to them? Third, Larry Coker (UTSA HC) has more seniors and returning starters than any other school. The Wildcats will probably be tested tonight. I would keep this game on rotation with the Green Bay vs. Seattle game.

2. On Friday we will see if the Pittsburgh Panthers rushing attack will be as impressive against an FBS school. It looked mighty impressive against Delaware, but BC is in a different league, literally. If … Read More »

My Preseason Top 25 Poll – 2014

Posted: August 25, 2014

I now present the definitive Top 25 preseason poll. I polled all one of me, tabulated the results, and now present my top 25 poll.

This poll is based on who I think are the better teams. In my opinion, a higher ranked team would beat a lower ranked team on a neutral field. It is not based on how they will finish the year. For example, if I think the Rajin’ Cajuns will go undefeated and therefore the media will vote them high because only record matters, I may have them ranked significantly lower, because I do not believe they would beat the teams higher than them on a neutral field.

Simply put, my rankings are who I think are the best teams, irrespective of record. Not to say wins and … Read More »


Week 11 Recap

12th November

Posted: November 12, 2013

Oklahoma at Baylor – The Baylor offense came to play as we all expected they would. What was surprising was the Baylor defense. The Sooners struggled to get things going and were never able to find their offensive rhythm being held to 237 total yards and only 10 offensive points. The Bears move to 8-0 and now that their schedule has some meat to it, may finally get into the national title conversation.

Oregon at Stanford – For the second year in a row, the Cardinal has crushed the Ducks hopes at a national title. Stanford pounded on Oregon jumping out to a 26-0 lead before holding back a late rally by the Ducks. Time of possession in this game was 42:34 to 17:26. The Cardinal shut down the high … Read More »
