Week 4 2014 Preview – Pondering the Future

Random thoughts on the upcoming weekend of college football.

1. The weekend gets off to a fast start on Thursday with the Auburn Tigers traveling to Manhattan, Kansas to take on the Kansas State Wildcats. This is one of two games between top 25 teams and it is in prime time on Thursday night. Both teams come in 2-0. Auburn’s easy week 1 win over Arkansas looks even better after Arkansas shredded Texas Tech. I still am not sure what to make of this Wildcat team. I guess we find out Thursday. Bill Synder Stadium should be rocking for this one.

2. On Friday, UConn takes on South Florida in Tampa. Unfortunately for the Bulls, there are probably 10 high school games within 5 miles of Raymond James that will be better … Read More »


The Week that Was – Recap of Week 3 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 »


Week 10 Recap

6th November

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 factor enough of the Lane Kiffin influence. This loss for the Beavers hurt, as any remote chance of winning the North evaporated.

Georgia vs Florida – My Gators could not shake a dismal start and fall 23-20 to the rival Bulldogs. I am not really sure that either team walks away from this game feeling good, but a W is a W. Amid a very chippy game featuring many personal fouls of the offsetting variety, Todd Gurley was the difference. Georgia ran out the clock with … Read More »

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 division, so this game is important to both sides. USC is playing a lot better since the firing of Lane Kiffin.

Georgia vs Florida – The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Soda Party kicks off at 3:30. Both teams are reeling and injured. The Bulldogs and Gators both enter 3-2 in the SEC with slim hopes of winning the SEC East. Loser is clearly out. Winner needs help.

Michigan at Michigan State – These two teams are atop one of the Big10 divisions and the winner of this game has … Read More »

Wake Forest at Miami – Miami ekes out another win to remain unbeaten. Next week…Florida State. One team will emerge with their first loss. I know where my money would be.

Connecticut @ Central Florida – Could UConn be the worst team in the country? It is certainly possible as they got spanked by UCF. They do have some opportunities on the schedule to get a win but a winless Huskie team is certainly possible.

Nebraska at Minnesota – The Golden Gophers get the upset and hand the Cornhuskers its second loss of the year, but this one hurts a lot more as it is a conference loss for Nebraska. This ended a 16 game streak the Huskers had on the Gophers who are now bowl eligible.

Western Michigan at Massachusetts – Someone had to win … 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 »

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 »


Game 8: Oklahoma Sooners @ Texas Tech Red Raiders

Posted by Jarrett in Trip Reports. No Comments

21st November

This game looked like a good one at the beginning of the season. Really, honest it did. In what I thought would be a matchup of two ranked teams and maybe a Big 12 division on the line, it was in fact a battle to become bowl eligible.
