The Week that Was – Recap of Week 4 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...

Al’s 2014 College Football Predictions

August 27, 2014 Everyone has their predictions, so why not me as well? I’m going to take a different spin on things, adding a little CollegeFootballQuest flavoring to my mix on some of them, and of course, not pick this years champion: Charlie Weis has to go. I am not...

Week 11 Recap

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...

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 8 Preview

Posted: October 17, 2013 Central Florida at Louisville – Last chance for Louisville to lose and they are 12.5 point favorites. Gotta love the Cards schedule. Al will be pulling hard for his Knights but put the Cards down for undefeated and not a top 10 team in my...

Week 7 Recap

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...
