The Week that Was – Recap of Week 3 2014

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

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 »

Week 3 2014 Preview – Pondering the Future

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

10th September

Posted: September 10, 2014

Random thoughts on the upcoming weekend of college football.

1. If you thought last week’s schedule was light, check out this week. Only one game between Top 25 teams…Georgia at South Carolina. 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 good. Maybe it is a good weekend to score some points with the significant other….nah, bad games are still better than the mall.

2. Syracuse at Central Michigan – First, how is this game in Mt. Pleasant? Second, would you believe that these teams enter the game undefeated. Yup, it is true. That is about the only thing about this game that I find intriguing.

3. Massachusetts at Vanderbilt – One of these … Read More »


The Week that Was – Recap of Week 2 2014

9th September

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 »


2014 College Football Predictions – follow up #1

Bold Predictions For 2014 – 1st Follow-Up    9/8/2014

Here’s my first follow-up to my predictions:

Charlie Weis has won a game. Hooray!!!  Now clearly it wasn’t against a mighty powerhouse like Kansas State (he he ha ha), but he did manage a “W”, which was important being he has impossible games the rest of the way (can’t believe Duke is an impossible game). Sure the game this past weekend against Orville Reddinbochers School of Growing Better Popcorn, but they did win, and the game was over at halftime in convincing fashion. The problem was they let them climb back in, all the way to an onside kick with under 2 minutes left. Too close, no finish, poor coaching. Still on target for September 29th where he will have a tee time on the Blue Course at Doral. I just can’t see … 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 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 10 Recap

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

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 »

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 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 »

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 »
