SEC Week 3 Recap

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…

Not-So-Dual Threat: Can Brandon Wimbush Improve As A Passer?

Barkley v. Jewell. A Week 3 Review and Look Ahead to Week 4

This past weekend marked another dull slate of games in the Big Ten.

The first weekend of the Big 12’s round-robin conference schedule will feature three matchups, one that could easily be regarded as the game of the week when all is said and done.

FBS Independents Week 4 Thoughts

For the most part, the four FBS Independents are looking at more talent than they’ve each respectively seen since the start of the season. These are my thoughts. FRIDAY UMass (0-3) v. Temple (1-1) The Minutemen have yet to lose by more than 10 points, so they’ve played everyone close. As nice as this may…
