Texas A&M 52 South Carolina 28

Wow. Texas A&M went out and offensively imposed their will on the South Carolina defense. Generally speaking, the Gamecocks have had a pretty good defense over the last few years but they just looked over-matched today. Were they not prepared, do they not have the players or was it just a bad match-up for the […]

SEC Predictions- Week One (Thursday Games)

Texas A&M at South Carolina 6 PM, SEC Network Line: Gamecocks by 10.5 South Carolina not only will learn about life after Jadeveon Clowney, but more importantly they must replace Connor Shaw. Dylan Thompson has seen action over the last two years but now it’s time for him to take center stage. The Gamecocks have […]

Dorial Green-Beckham will not play for Oklahoma in 2014

Over the past month, there have been rumblings that Oklahoma was “very confident” that their waiver to allow Dorial Green-Beckham to play this season would be approved. This was quite perplexing to myself and most of the college football world. The only way I felt DBG would be eligible was if Missouri went to bat for […]

Breaking down the Missouri Tigers

I wrote a piece on Missouri today for The Student Section. Here’s a sneak peak…. The Missouri Tigers would have been the talk of the SEC and possibly the nation last season if not for the miraculous turnaround of the Auburn Tigers. Missouri went from fifth place in the SEC East in its debut season, […]

Braxton Miller expected to miss season, can Ohio State survive?

Braxton Miller re-injured his throwing shoulder at practice on Monday and the word on the street is that he will miss the 2014 season. Miller is one of the top players in college football and one of the front-runners for the Heisman Trophy. Can Ohio State survive life without Braxton? Last season Miller missed some […]

For better or worse: Clemson Tigers

The 2013 Clemson Tigers went 11-2 and finished ranked #8 in the country. They beat Georgia and Ohio State but they also lost to rival South Carolina (again) and got waxed by Florida State. Clemson loses Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins but they still have a lot of talent and they have top notch coaches on […]

NCAA Football: ACC Championship-Florida State vs Duke

For better or worse: Florida State Seminoles

In 2013, Florida State finally broke through and won their first National Championship since 1999. In reality there wasn’t a long time between championships but recent Florida State teams had underachieved. Last years team did anything but underachieve. 2015 BCS championship odds favor Florida State, but will they be better or worse than they were last […]

For better or worse: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

After looking like a genius with Chan Gailey’s players, Paul Johnson has settled into an average tenure with the Jackets. Over the last four years the Jackets have never won less than six games and they’ve never won more than eight. They consistently finish 4-4 or 5-3 in the conference. Will the Jackets be better […]

For better or worse: UNC Tar Heels

In 2013, the Tar Heels finished 7-6 overall and 4-4 in the ACC. What is a one game slide good for in the ACC Coastal? It’s the difference between a tie for first place and a fifth place finish. Will the Heels be better or worse than they were last season? First let’s take a […]

For better or worse: Pittsburgh Panthers

In his two years at Pitt, Paul Chryst has gone 13-13 overall and has started to dig Pitt out of the weird circumstances caused by their multitude of head coaching changes. In 2013, the Panthers went 7-6 with their best win coming against Notre Dame and their worst loss coming at the hands of Navy. Will […]

For better or worse: Boston College Eagles

After a two win season in 2012, the Eagles turned to Steve Addazio as their new head coach. Addazio was coming off of a 4-7 season with the Temple Owls so the hire seemed a bit strange. If last years results are any indication, the Eagles went 7-6, the hire doesn’t seem very strange anymore. Will […]

For better or worse: Syracuse Orange

In their first year in the ACC, Syracuse went 7-6 overall and split their conference games. In Scott Shafer’s debut season, the Orange started slow as they lost four of their first seven including an embarrassing loss to Georgia Tech 56-0 but they turned it around down the stretch and won four of their last […]

For better or worse: Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Last season the Wake Forest Demon Deacons went 4-8 in Jim Grobe’s final season. Their two conference wins came against Maryland and NC State and their worst loss came at the hands of Louisiana-Monroe. Dave Clawson, from Bowling Green, has replaced Grobe. Will Wake be better or worse than they were last season? First let’s […]

For better or worse: NC State Wolfpack

Last season the North Carolina State Wolfpack won just three games for their new head coach, Dave Doeren. Their three wins came against Louisiana Tech, Central Michigan and Richmond (yeah, that’s rough). Will the Pack be better or worse than they were last season? First let’s take a look at the schedule…. 8/30 vs Georgia […]

For better or worse: Virginia Cavaliers

Last season the Virginia Cavaliers finished the season with a 2-10 record and went winless in the ACC. Their best win was the season opener against BYU and their worst loss came in week five when they got routed by Ball State. Will the Cavs be better or worse than they were last season? First […]
