The Week that Was – Recap of Week 6 2014

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...

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...

The Week that Was – Recap of Week 3 2014

Posted: September 15, 2014 A look back at Week 3 of the college football season. 1. Ok, I was wrong. The schedule appeared light, but three Top 25 teams lost to unranked opponents; USC, Virginia Tech, and Louisville. Additionally, UCLA barely escaped against a down...

The Week that Was – Recap of Week 1 2014

Posted: September 2, 2014 1. The first Quest trip of the year got off to a lovely start (picture as much sarcasm as possible and then multiply by 100). Eleven of us sat in the Swamp for 5 hours and saw 10 seconds of football. Thank you mother nature. I can’t fault the...

Week 1 2014 Preview – Pondering the Future

Posted: August 27, 2014 1. The Quest begins Week 1 with the annual Gainesville trip, family in tow. Here’s to hoping it does not cost as much as last years trip to Syracuse….too late! But on the plus side, the kids first Gator game. Let’s hope it’s not another Georgia...

Week 10 Recap

Posted: November 6, 2013 USC at Oregon State – The Trojans continue to impress since the firing of Lane Kiffin winning three of four games. USC is playing like I expected them to when I predicted an 8-1 conference record and winning the Pac12 South. I guess I did not...

Week 10 Preview

Posted: October 31, 2013 USC at Oregon State – A rare Friday night match up of not horrible teams. This game should be entertaining and fun to watch. There is nothing of immediate importance in this game but neither team is out of the race in their respective...

Week 8 Recap

Posted: October 22, 2013 Wow what a week. Six of the top 12 teams go down, with three losing to unranked teams. Things in the SEC looked upside down with Tennessee, Missouri, Vanderbilt, Auburn, and Ole Miss winning while Florida, Texas A&M, Georgia, South...

Week 6 Recap

Posted: October 8, 2013 I did not have the opportunity to watch any games prior to 8pm as CollegeFootballQuest was in Syracuse this weekend and I was accompanied by my wife and kids. So, some of this recap is based on heresay and highlights. Texas @ Iowa State –...

Week 6 Preview

Posted: October 2, 2013 UCLA at Utah – This game should have some points. These are two explosive offenses both scoring over 40 ppg and UCLA is over 50 ppg. UCLA looks to get off to a 4-0 start, while the Utes are 3-1 themselves. This could be whoever had the ball...

Week 4 Preview

Posted: September 19, 2013 Clemson at NC State – The Thursday night game this week is two 2-0 teams in the ACC opener for both. Clemson has the big win over Georgia so far this year. Thus, the Tigers will typically lose a game they shouldn’t each year. Is this the...

Week 3 Recap

. Posted: September 17, 2013 TCU at Texas Tech – It was not pretty, but the Red Raiders get the win and send TCU to a 1-2 start. Not what the Horned Frogs were looking for. TCU has some tough games coming up so this was a game they needed. This game sends TTU into the...

Week 3 Preview

Posted: September 12, 2013 TCU at Texas Tech – This is a game to look forward to. Texas Tech has put up some points in its first two games, but TCU’s defense should play better than either SMU or Stephen F. Austin. This will be a measuring stick game for TT....

Week 2 Preview

Posted: September 5, 2013 Ugggh! I cannot remember a weekend with such a poor lineup of games. This would have been a good weekend for a quest trip, except for the fact that one of the three games worth mentioning is Florida at Miami. So instead, I am home with a...

2013 Season Preview

Date: June 26, 2013 | First up on the list of new venues, the boys take a trip almost as far west as they will travel over the lifetime of this Quest, to Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon, home of the Ducks. This will be the first Pac-12 game they have been to. Both are looking forward to seeing if the reality of Autzen lives up to the hype as one of the best college football venues in the nation.

All Eyes on Destin, Fl

Posted: May 28, 2013 Today begins the SEC meetings in Destin, Fl. What happens in SEC country reverberates throughout college football, so all eyes are watching. Yes, it is a conference meeting so there will be a lot on the agenda that does not directly relate to...

Travel Report

Posted: May 16, 2013 The College Football Quest machine has been hard at work the past few weeks making all the travel arrangements that go into our quest schedule. Once the games are selected, I get right to work trying to secure our travel arrangements. Sometimes...
