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. Everyone loves looking at tie-ins and choosing what four-win teams are capable of winning out to just sneak into a bowl. No? Only me? Ok then. I think this is a given at this point, but UCF is the Forgotten 5's representative … Continue reading The Forgotten 5 Are Going Bowling – Here’s Where I Think They’ll Go; Yeah, I Predicted Power 5 Too Because Whatever

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

A Preview of Week 5’s MWC Action

BYU @ Utah State - BYU -2.5 I still have no idea why BYU is favored in this game.  Tanner Mangum is out, and the Cougs have barely a heartbeat.  In the meantime, Utah State is coming off a huge conference win where the offense was firing on all cylinders.  Aggies if you lose this … Continue reading A Preview of Week 5’s MWC Action

MWC Roundup Week 3: The “Why Me?” hangover hits

Hail, Monty! Or at least that's what the rest of the MWC should be saying.  The Aztecs under Rocky Long have become the standard-bearer in the Mountain West for the past couple years, but this year especially at the expense of a bad Arizona State team and a severely overrated Stanford.  That's two quality wins … Continue reading MWC Roundup Week 3: The “Why Me?” hangover hits

New Mexico State Aggies Hold On to Top New Mexico Lobos 30-28 In Rio Grande Rivalry

When I say that the New Mexico State Aggies had every bounce going their way in the first half, I'm not joking. Not even a little. The Aggies fumbled twice, but one was scooped up by Jaleel Scott for an additional yardage gain. Tyler Rogers threw a ball into traffic that shot through the hands of … Continue reading New Mexico State Aggies Hold On to Top New Mexico Lobos 30-28 In Rio Grande Rivalry

Get’em While They’re Hot: Week 2 Picks

So far I am 5-2 overall  and 1-0-1 for parlays on the season.  Remember, picks are listed in order of … Continue reading Get’em While They’re Hot: Week 2 Picks

Running back Osharmar Abercrombie carried the Chanticleers to victory behind his 150 rushing yards and two touchdowns. On the other … Continue reading 2017 Forgotten5 Road Trip: Week Two

The Quick and Dirty as to Why “POW6R” Won’t Happen

The bold move by the American Athletic Conference to try to brand themselves as the obvious addition to the Power Five is a valiant effort. Seriously though - P6 WON’T HAPPEN. The idea that the Power 5 will ever let a Group of 5 conference become strong enough top to bottom to compete with them … Continue reading The Quick and Dirty as to Why “POW6R” Won’t Happen
