No doubt Lincoln Riley has been winning every round up till now. Dana Holgorsen went 0-7 against Oklahoma as a head coach and the scores after Riley joined the Sooner staff went: 2015: OU 44, WVU 24 2016: OU 56, WVU 28 2017: OU 59, WVU 31 2018: OU 59, WVU 56 That last one … [Read more…]
Over at Football Study Hall I propose that the G5 get out ahead of the coming shifts and changes in college football and establish their own playoff to determine a national champion.
I speculated around this point over at SB Nation. It’s obviously very difficult to know the answer, just as it’s hard to really know whether one of the better Boise, TCU, or Utah teams of the past that went undefeated might have been able to win a playoff.

After consecutive Big 12 titles in 2013 and 2014 the Bears were cruising in recruiting, snatching up highly touted … [Read more…]
I was honestly a bit surprised that Charlie chose to bring Sterlin Gilbert and Matt Mattox with him to USF and it should be very interesting to see how they adapt to making the most of athletic quarterbacks there like Quinton Flowers. I broke down what they’re facing in terms of turning the USF Bull … [Read more…]
