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 […]

Comparing Phil Steele and Athlon’s Offensive Pre-Season SEC teams

Now that Athlon’s college football magazine has hit the newstands and Phil Steele has posted his pre-season teams, I thought it would be interested in comparing the two and their SEC picks. QB Nick Marshall (Auburn) and Bo Wallace (Ole Miss) were unanimous first and second team selections RB Todd Gurley (UGA) and TJ Yeldon […]


Looking at “explosiveness” in the SEC

I picked up my copy of Athlon’s college football preview this morning and was happy to see an article by Bill Connelly, of Football Study Hall, about college football analytics. Bill breaks down five points about college football stats and one of them was focusing on explosiveness and yards per play. While yards per play […]

Bill Goldberg went to Georgia because of a bottle of Wild Turkey?

You probably know Bill Goldberg as the professional wrestler who burst onto the scene in the late 90s spearing and jackhammering everybody in sight. What you might not remember is that he was once an All-SEC defensive lineman for the University of Georgia. Goldberg was on Jim Ross’s Ross Report podcast this week and the […]


Where did your favorite wrestler play college football?

For decades, there has been a link between college football and professional wrestling. You can go back to Bronko Nagurski, a two way star at the University of Minnesota, who played college football in the late 1920s and while playing professionally did double duty as a professional wrestler. Can you imagine that happening today? When […]
