Next month will mark the beginning of our fifth year of existence, and we've been fortunate that the insanity of this year hasn't torpedoed our existence much yet (looking at you, 2020 CFB season).

Looking at Georgia Southern’s Roster: The Receivers

EDITORS NOTE: This topic has recently resurfaced with the study brought out from Old Dominion.

What if the College Football Playoff had 24 teams in 2019

We already talked about how the current College Football Playoff and its four-team bracket was a pseudo-expansion of the previous BCS system, and it didn't solve a whole lot of problems since that expansion still left well over two-thirds of college football teams starting their season with a zero-percent chance of reaching said playoff bracket. … Continue reading What if the College Football Playoff had 24 teams in 2019
