The NCAA is not dead . . . Yet.

Ex-Northwestern QB Kain Colter won his case. The Northwestern football players can form a Union. So the NCAA is dead right? They have to get paid, they have rights, everything is hunky-dorey and everything is great, right? Not so fast. The case only applies to Northwestern football players, and they have a LONG road to …

7 Pounds of Something: 12/9 Edition

Welcome to your Monday Morning cup o’something. Today we talking Football.   I don’t do Crow. I am a faithful fan of the Panthers, Irish, and Tarheels. The Panthers Secondary Sucks. Has all year. That is not an excuse, and no I didn’t see the Saints tearing them up all game. Lets be honest, I …

Another Shift in the Conference Sands

The seven basketball-geared Catholic schools of the Big East bolted the league en masse, rendering the conference obsolete for all intents and purposes. Of the eight teams that played in the football league in 2012, at least four are headed elsewhere in the next two years — Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Louisville to the ACC and …

BCS Buster Special: Why Louisiana Tech Isn’t Bowling in 2012

One team’s BCS Buster dreams became another team’s absolute nightmare… and no, we’re not talking today about Oklahoma falling to a Cotton Bowl battle against Texas A&M instead of playing in the Sugar Bowl against Florida. The Sooners still got a marquee matchup against an SEC school, one that will get top billing in a …

BCS Buster Special: NIU Miami-Bound in Final 2012 Rankings

It’s the question on everybody’s mind after the final BCS rankings came out on Sunday night: How could a school that was completely off the radar two weeks ago now be among the top 15 teams in the nation? How did a one-loss MAC school earn its way into the BCS? As the numbers came …

BCS Buster Power Rankings: 2012 Week 13 Rankings

Normally, by this point of the season, this has become purely a Power Ranking of the non-AQ teams. Either a team has established itself as a BCS Buster, or they have not… 2012 wasn’t destined to be like the others. With a playoff lingering just two years down the road — and the stipulation that …

BCS Buster Special Edition: Scenarios for a Bulldog Berth

We enter the final few weeks of the regular season with one final hope to bust into the BCS from the non-AQ leagues. And it could be the final chapter in the illustrious history of a mid-major that has long been a thorn in the side of the college football establishment. Louisiana Tech holds a …

BCS Buster Power Rankings: 2012 Week 11 Rankings

If the WAC wants to write a fairy-tale ending in its final year of existence, it must avoid cannibalizing itself. Statement games in the next two weeks will decide the conference crown one last time, and they could also decide the fate of the last standing non-AQ hope for a BCS berth. Other teams and …

Damn You Alabama – signed, Notre Dame

Preface: I’m a Notre Dame fan. Grew up one, remain one. As a ND fan, I watched in horror as Alabama died on the field vs no15 Texas A&M. I hold no love for the Sabinites, quite the contrary, as my wife is a huge LSU fan, I am more than happy to see them …

BCS Buster Power Rankings: 2012 Week 10 Rankings

We are left to wonder what might have been after a wild first weekend of November left the hopes of BCS Busters reeling. The most legitimate candidate of 2012 (according to the polls) suffered its usual midseason conference swoon, while the best candidate (according to their resume) is left to hope for further shakedowns in …

BCS Buster Power Rankings: 2012 Week 9 Rankings

When Ohio lost to the RedHawks on Saturday, it eliminated the last undefeated non-AQ team from the discussion. Usually that would mean we’ve reached the academic part of the season for the BCS Buster Power Rankings, where all we have to do is decipher which teams are better relative to one another and would have …
