Group of Five Doomsday: Breaking Free From the Power Five

With all this possible playoff expansion talk, it got me thinking; what would be the worst-case scenario for the Group of Five? Well, it would be where an expanded playoff doesn't include an auto-bid for at least one G5 team.  What does that mean for the G5, you might ask? It's time to go our … Continue reading Group of Five Doomsday: Breaking Free From the Power Five

Geographic Realignment Could Be a Worthwhile Pursuit for the Group of Five

EDITORS NOTE: This topic has recently resurfaced with the study brought out from Old Dominion. While I personally will choose to believe this was primarily a study used to justify the shut-down of wrestling, it has brought geographic realignment - a worthwhile pursuit in my book - back to the table. Here's my thoughts, updated … Continue reading Geographic Realignment Could Be a Worthwhile Pursuit for the Group of Five

South Alabama Struggles to Connect the Dots, Falls 42-6 to Memphis

Weird final score, right? That's because the first pretty thing the Jaguars did all game - a 74-yard touchdown pass from Tylan Morton to Kawaan Baker - was followed by an extra point that was so badly botched that Memphis ran it back nearly untouched for a safety. The Jags only managed 174 yards of … Continue reading South Alabama Struggles to Connect the Dots, Falls 42-6 to Memphis

Best of the Belt: Ranking the Sun Belt’s Power 5 Resumes

For G5 teams, there are only so many ways outside of head-to-head matchups that you can compare yourself to another school’s resume. The easiest way to show how much better your university is than another is to see how you stack up against the Power 5. I decided to take a look at how the … Continue reading Best of the Belt: Ranking the Sun Belt’s Power 5 Resumes

Group of Five Teams With the Most Interesting 2019 Schedules

Interesting has a nice, broad definition so I went with that word choice.

I've not gone into equal detail about … Continue reading Group of Five Teams With the Most Interesting 2019 Schedules

Ranking the Sun Belt Football Coaching Jobs

We're a little over halfway through the college football offseason but we have the hardest part of the football-less period ahead of us.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Uniforms: Part 2

In part 2 of this 3 part series, I'll examine uniforms I have categorized as "bad". (You can read part 1 here) Now this doesn't necessarily mean these are uniforms I think need an immediate change, but definitely could use some work.
