The Week that Was – Recap of Week 3 2014

16th September

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 Texas team. Further, the only match-up of Top 25 teams was a good one as South Carolina beat Georgia. I think both of those teams have some work to do on defense. I believe that I wrote…I don’t see any other game where a Top 25 team is challenged with the possible exception of East Carolina at Virginia Tech. Not exactly on the nose, but I did allude to one of the upsets, so at least there is that.

2. Did Vanderbilt really have to rally with two TD’s in the 4Q, the second coming with … Read More »

The Week that Was – Recap of Week 1 2014

2nd September

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 officials for postponing / canceling this game but it sure did suck. The first Gator game for the kids was not to be this year. A lot of money was spent flying, staying, eating, and shopping in Gainesville and we had a good time, but we did not see anything more than one kickoff. I certainly hope this is not foreshadowing of the year to come. Stat of the night…In the six hours around kickoff, there were over 1,100 lightning strikes … Read More »


My Preseason Top 25 Poll – 2014

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

25th August

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 12 Preview

13th November

Posted: November 13, 2013

Ball State at Northern Illinois – The 9-1 Cardinals take on the 9-0 Huskies. 15th ranked offense versus 8th ranked offense, by points scored. Both teams are undefeated in the MAC. The MAC is certainly giving us a game to watch this week. Can we get to 100 points?

Georgia Tech at Clemson – The Yellow Jackets bring the triple option into Death Valley. The Tigers have rebounded nicely from the loss to FSU winning their last two games by a combined score of 99-37. There is no chance of the Tigers catching the Noles to win the Atlantic Division so the Tigers are seeking a BCS at large bid. The Yellow Jackets are one of four teams with 2 losses in the Coastal division. This game is critical if the … Read More »

Week 7 Recap

16th October

Posted: October 16, 2013

Oregon at Washington – As expected, the Huskies did not get blown out, but the Ducks win comfortably. Washington is a program headed in the right direction, but they just cannot compete with the elite of the Pac12….yet. Oregon just needs to avoid a massive mistake versus Washington State before they head into back to back games against UCLA and Stanford.

Boston College at Clemson – BC was leading this game going into the 4Q. Clemson now has a big showdown with the Seminoles. That will be must see TV.

Stanford at Utah – The Utes get their biggest home win beating a Top 5 team at home for the first time with a big goal line stand at the end of the game. The Utes played a great game and were rewarded … Read More »

8th October

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 – I guess this is what the Longhorns have become, needing a last second TD and a push across the goal line by the officials to beat the Cyclones.

Maryland at Florida State – I guess the Terps were not for real. This is a score that you see in a directional school game. The takeaway for me is that schedule matters. Maryland’s 4-0 record was a mirage as they played noone. No the Terps know where they stand and it is far away from the top of … Read More »

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 one?

Utah St. at USC – Could Lane Kiffin get fired after losing this one?

Tennessee at Florida – The CFQ heads to the Swamp. Burrito Brothers here I come!

Michigan State at Notre Dame – The Spartans may have one of the best defenses you have not heard about. The Irish cannot run the ball. This equals a ND -7 line from the folks in Vegas? ND is a popular team but that line stinks. ND may pull this out but it is probably … Read More »


Week 3 Recap

17th September

. 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 Top 25 and TCU out.

Bowling Green at Indiana – If you have not seen the Falcons punt block for a TD, you must find it on that internet thing. The Falcons take the ball right off the Hosiers punter’s foot and runs it back. It is a Top 10 highlight of the year.

Akron at Michigan – If you ask me, it was pass interference on the last play, but it was close. Akron could have pulled this one out and … Read More »

12th September

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. Excitement is high with new coach Kingsbury. This game should give an indication if TT will make some noise in the Big12 this year. I still do not know what I am getting with TCU. TCU did not play well in the opening game to LSU and the 10 point final margin is misleading. Starting QB Pachall is out for awhile. This game is important for both schools and is the ESPN Thursday night game. Once the Pats are whipping up on … Read More »

10th September

Florida at Miami – I think Miami played prevent on offense for three quarters. Wow, what a horrible performance by the Florida offense. Coach Muschamp can tell us all that if not for the momentum of the first Miami drive, none of this would have happened, but that presumes amnesia about the past 2 years. Florida’s offense is flat out offensive and Miami knew it. All Miami had to do was not get in the way of the gun and Florida’s foot. And the Canes almost bungled that.

South Carolina at Georgia – This Clowney saga could get interesting. This was a nice bounce back win for the Dogs finally beating SC. The win gives UGA a huge jump in the SEC East but due to the excellent scheduling in … Read More »


Top 25 Poll – 9/3/2013

I now present the definitive Top 25 poll. Each week I will poll myself, tabulate the results, and then present them.

As a reminder, this poll is based on who I think is the better team. 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 based on record and finish, I would have Louisville ranked higher because they have an excellent chance to go undefeated based on their schedule. But I have them ranked significantly lower, because I do not believe they would beat the teams higher than them on a neutral field.

The number in () is last week’s ranking.

1. Alabama 1-0 (1)
