Why Auburn’s Playoff Hopes rest on Jarrett Stidham’s Arm

It’s rivalry week in college football, and the most compelling game it features is the Iron Bowl between top-ranked Alabama and number six Auburn. Alabama is the likely favorite for a plethora of good reasons, but this game will be taking place on Auburn’s campus, where they have not lost the entire season. At 9-2,…

It was a busy and exciting week for SEC football. I know it’s hard to keep up with how all of the teams did – I’d be lying if I said I sat down and watched every single game – but I’ll try and give a brief synopsis of each team’s performance from the previous…

Ranking The Top Five NBA Draft Prospects From The ACC

The ACC regularly produces some of the top talent in the NBA draft, with powerhouse programs such as Duke and North Carolina pumping out NBA talent on a yearly basis.

FBS Independents Week 12 Thoughts

Last week, I zeroed in on the ND-Miami game because of its implications. And wouldn’t you know it, that game never happened.

Rhode Island Will Rule The A-10, But Could They Rule The NCAA?

The main question mark surrounding an otherwise impressive roster for the 2017-2018 season is how will the Rams do defensively without the stellar defensive anchor Hassan Martin from last season. Martin was a force to be reckoned with during the 2016-2017 season averaging 13.6 points, 2.4 blocks and 6.8 rebounds. The losses of Martin and…

Keys to a Miami Victory against Notre Dame

A week after suffocating Virginia Tech and only allowing 10 points, the Miami Hurricanes find themselves in another position to put themselves in the top four if they can beat Notre Dame. The rivalry looks to be renewed this year, after both programs, particularly Miami have been up and down in the last decade or…
