AP Top 25: Group Of Five Outlook

With the second edition of the AP Top 25 being released today, we've got plenty to look forward to in terms of G5 teams move'n on up! Chaos was rampant, with Mountain West teams again proving themselves superior to the Pig- er- Power Five. Unfortunately, not many squads will move in to the actual Top … Continue reading AP Top 25: Group Of Five Outlook

Hawai’i Ends Week Zero With a Literal Heart-Stopper of a Win Over Arizona

Well, that was fun, huh? I'd like to say "let's not do that again" but I'm not about to lie to myself or you. Hawai'i is unlikely to play this close a game again for a while, but I will bet my paycheck this is nowhere near the last time a Rainbow Warriors game will … Continue reading Hawai’i Ends Week Zero With a Literal Heart-Stopper of a Win Over Arizona

I’m Disproportionately Excited About 2019 Hawai’i Football

See, here's the thing. Hawai'i Rainbow Warrior football has always been on my "must watch" list. An opportunity to extend your consecutive hours of watching college football beyond the 12-hour mark? Absolutely. A chance to watch that always-exciting and occasionally-good Run-n-Shoot offense that never makes for a dull moment? Sign me up. O.K., except for … Continue reading I’m Disproportionately Excited About 2019 Hawai’i Football

A Flavor For Every Mountain West Football Team

Alexander The Great, Marco Polo, and George Washington all loved their … Continue reading A Flavor For Every Mountain West Football Team

An Ideal College Football Structure, Part 3: The New Group of 5

In the previous entries¬†of this series, I explained my idea for a complete rebuild of college football.

Today's final volume will be … Continue reading An Ideal College Football Structure, Part 3: The New Group of 5

Group of Five Teams With the Most Interesting 2019 Schedules

Interesting has a nice, broad definition so I went with that word choice. I tripped down a scheduled rabbit hole the other day and started noticing some interesting patterns, so I thought other people might be as weird as me and want to know about them as well. I've not gone into equal detail about … Continue reading Group of Five Teams With the Most Interesting 2019 Schedules

How the Mountain West Wants The Rest Of The Season To Go

The Mountain West is nearly done with its season, only three more weeks. There are some clear winners, and some clear losers. But what is the best ending for the conference as a whole? It's that a ranked 11-1 team makes a NY6. But who should it be? What about the rest of the conference? … Continue reading How the Mountain West Wants The Rest Of The Season To Go

Group of Five Top 10 Poll, Week Eight

Another week, another poll. So, while I agree on two-loss Boise and Hawai'i teams being lower, we definitely have a bias against West Coast teams in our voters. Also, while I am willing to make tweaks in the voting as compensation, I can't justify moving a team more than a few spots. That said, what … Continue reading Group of Five Top 10 Poll, Week Eight
