I’ve done two previews of the national championship. I broke down some of the big picture trends and stats over at Football Outsiders and dove in deep on how I think Georgia will attack Jalen Hurts for SB Nation. Because I was writing on the SEC extensively this season over at Saturday Down South I’ve … [Read more…]
There have been a few interesting developments in the world of college football. Lots of players are choosing to forego bowl games and jump into the NFL. There are even players that are jumping early despite lower draft grades. Why? Because it’s all about the second contract and getting there while you still have your … [Read more…]
Happy New Year everyone! Today is the day of the college football playoffs (and some other games) which is always exciting. They sure make the second game end late, but that’s alright, I’ve got enough juice for at least one more late night CFB binge before the offseason. I’ve written four previews of these playoff … [Read more…]
They released them the other night I think. Me and the wife have been watching “Stranger Things” recently so we aren’t super up to date on the World Series or this playoff show. The whole goal of these weekly rankings is to amp up the anticipation and talk around the sport and maintain the entertainment … [Read more…]
To write about the SEC this season! If you’re a fan of that league I’ll be writing three shorter columns a week on that site focusing this season in the SEC. I opened my examining “the state of the process” and whether Alabama can continue to dominate the league in 2017 by controlling the trenches.

Back in early November, it leaked out to the media that Phil Knight would pay upwards of $10 million per year for the next head coach of the Oregon Ducks. Of course they hadn’t even announced that Mark Helfrich wouldn’t be retained at that point so that might also have been a power move to … [Read more…]
I did just that over at SB Nation. Examining all the winning calls that brought down Alabama just brings into clearer picture how the key to beating the Tide is being able to throw the ball at a high level. Like last year, the Tide trying to be cautious with their pass-rush to allow them … [Read more…]
I can honestly say I saw that coming. I reviewed what we’d learned from last year’s matchup between these two teams and I did a big stat/unit breakdown on Football Outsiders where I boiled things down to: There are three elite units in this game, two of them are Clemson’s (their O and D). Alabama’s offense … [Read more…]
My big preview of Alabama vs Clemson, round II is up at SB Nation. I found myself talking myself into the Tigers in this one.
