Every Week is a GIFt – Week 2 Edition

Group of 5 Power Rankings in a GIFfy Sorry people, I’m back. I know, I know…why? Honestly, it is because no one read this the first time so I figure I might as well continue my quest for creating a series of articles with no value. The truth hurts, I know you needed something more … Continue reading Every Week is a GIFt – Week 2 Edition

New Mexico State Aggies Top Idaho Vandals 17-10, Continue to Cling to Bowl Hopes

What a mess of a game. I appreciate that a win is a win is a win, but I would really love to have one that's much less stressful.

Week 12 in the Sun Belt: Cupcake Week…. Or is it?

The Sun Belt Conference could not have scripted a better ending to the no-championship-game-having era with four one-loss teams heading into mid-November. While it is cupcake week and the Sun Belt's slate of Saturday's games are relatively weak, we could be in store for some unforeseen wackiness. Teams are still jockeying for a sixth win … Continue reading Week 12 in the Sun Belt: Cupcake Week…. Or is it?

The Forgotten 5 Are Going Bowling – Here’s Where I Think They’ll Go; Yeah, I Predicted Power 5 Too Because Whatever

Bowl season is almost here everyone, you know what that means, bowl projections.

Takes from last week Last week was my first losing week to date, going 1-2 ATS.  After those 2 losses and 1 win I am currently at 22-10-1 on the year.  This past weekend taught me to not go against Georgia State, never bet a game with App in it, and Eastern Michigan is a … Continue reading Get’em While They’re Hot: Week 10 Picks

Film Sesh: Week Nine

Here at Forgotten Five, we watch football religiously (or sacrilegiously, depending on your views.) That leads us to seeing plenty of videos from G5, both good and bad. Film Sesh will be devoted to breaking down (and sometimes just breaking) those conference recaps, highlight and other player of the week videos. But this ain't Jon … Continue reading Film Sesh: Week Nine

Week Nine Sun Belt Preview: Upset Alert?

Week nine in the Sun Belt will answer several questions as the race for the conference crown begins heating up. Georgia State inched closer to bowl eligibility with a 21-13 Thursday night win over South Alabama that wasn't as close as the score suggests.
