That's right people, I've had enough of parsing out six different articles each week going one conference at a time. Ain't nobody got time for that. Instead, we'll just roll with one nice long article that hits all the high points. Ready set go! American Athletic Conference USF is probably more lucky than good. They … Continue reading What We Learned In Week Seven of the Group of Five
Note from the author: if the photos within the article don't work, use the links provided in the text. Or trust my descriptions, it's up to you. College football's insanity continues. My Army Black Knights *almost* knocked off #5 Oklahoma. They were as close to winning as I was to a heart attack. UCF proved … Continue reading Best Uniforms from Week 4
Nevada’s defense might have some issues Yes, it's true, they have a very dynamic quarterback in Ty Gangi who can make things happen, and the Wolfpack aren't necessarily afraid to get into a shootout. That being said, it's not always the best situation to have no choice but to get involved in one. Yet, that's where … Continue reading What We Learned From Week Four in the Mountain West Conference
What an insane week in college football. #6 Wisconsin was taken down by BYU. Akron gets their first win vs a Big Ten team since the 1800's with a win over Northwestern. Temple also beats a Big Ten opponent in Maryland, and Ohio State edges past TCU. With tough games comes tough uniforms. Let's take … Continue reading Best Uniforms from Week 3
Boise might not have been ready for the big time just yet If nothing else, we can certainly agree that they need to figure some things out on special teams before it completely torpedoes their entire season. The Broncos had a punt blocked in the first half that gave the Cowboys the ball first and … Continue reading What We Learned About the Mountain West Conferencein Week Three
What an opening salvo from the Mountain West, huh? So much offense. I'll have to start planning on a lot more #MountainWestAfterDark if this pace keeps up. Hawai'i is going to run and shoot their way to a bowl game The calendar just rolled over to September, but the Rainbow Warriors are already 2-0. I'm … Continue reading What Did We Learn From Our First Week of Mountain West Conference Football?
OK, fine. Maybe by "we" I mean "I". Or maybe you expected Hawai'i or Rice to play the way they did? Yesterday sure started off predictable, at least. As I mentioned in the short preview, this marked the first time in seven years that UMass won their home opener and it was their first opening-game … Continue reading Week Zero of College Football Was More Surprising Than We Expected
We have finally arrived. Our long, national football-less nightmare is over and real live college football is back on the docket for the day. Let's take a look at our football menu, shall we? Appetizer: Duquesne at UMass, 5:30 ET This should be a pretty light fare. Duquesne and UMass both had fairly middling seasons … Continue reading Hello College Football, So Good to See You Again!
Hey folks, it's bowl game time. For any G5 fan, this usually means having your team play somewhere out in the Midwest or in Florida as one of the only games on that night. Maybe you play a Power 5 team and knock their block off, like Boise State did against Oregon in the Las … Continue reading Film Sesh: Week One of FBS Bowling
It wasn’t easy, but the Marshall Thundering Herd kept its bowl winning streak alive and held off a furious fourth-quarter comeback by Colorado State to escape with a 31-28 win in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl in front of 26,087 fans at Dreamstyle Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Herd (8-5) turned a seven-point halftime … Continue reading Herd Holds Off Colorado State Rally to Secure New Mexico Bowl
