College Football 2014: Off to a Slow Start

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 2013 College football season ended two days ago.  Two.

It ended well, too.  I’m not a Jamies Winston fan, but my dismay at seeing him win the National Championship was more than offset by what was, without question, one of the best bowl seasons that we will ever see and a National Championship game that lived up to the precedent set by barn burners like the Chick-fil-a bowl, Fiesta Bowl and Sugar Bowl. I’m not here to talk about 2013 though.

Nope.  I’m here to lament the fact that LESS THAN 48 HOURS after the 2013 season wrapped up, the 2014 College Football season has been RUINED.

The Case for Kell

I am, in no way, an unbiased observer. I was at Kellen Moore’s first game against Idaho State four years ago, probably watched at least 46 to 50 of his 53 games for Boise State, and woe him the fact that my favorite college football program just finished the winningest (apparently not a word) four year stretch in college football history.  Having said that I believe this.  I believe that he can be an NFL success.

This is Getting Serious

People with Alzheimer's are very eager to find out who is better, LSU or Alabama

I can’t think of a more damming thing to say, or a more accurate summation of the current college football system than to say that at the end of the year, it makes everyone who enjoys, or cares about college football wish that they didn’t.

Boise Yet to Put it All Together

The Boise State Broncos are 4-0 and ranked in College Football’s top 5, and yet Coach Pete’s squad is still looking to put together and dominate the way that they should be capable of.  After a somewhat lackluster effort, but a comfortable on Saturday, Bronco Nation awaits a full effort from Boise State football, whether or not it is necessary.   Continue reading

Wrapping up Sports’ Down Season

Summer is great, but you can't tell me you aren't feeling a certain lack of hitting in your life right now. Well, it is back, and thank god for that.

Good news for people who are sick of not having anything to concentrate on, and have been forced to actually go outside the past few weeks. Last night was our last night of utter boredom before football makes its glorious return for the first Thursday night of the year.  TONIGHT.

That is right, that means that starting tomorrow, we will have actual games and actual meaningful competition to distract ourselves with, as the start of the college football season is followed shortly thereafter by NFL, NHL and the baseball playoffs.  In other words, we are freed.

That means that we can bid adieu to all of the pointless, manufactured ‘debates’ and ‘questions’ that we endure every day on the internet and on SportsCenter that fill the hours between the Stanley Cup Finals and the start of football.  That also means that we need to answer these issues before we forget that they ever existed because we have games to watch.

Luckily, I am here to do just that.  There isn’t much time, though, so I will just run through it as fast as I can. Continue reading
