College Football Week 12 Recap

I’ll be honest with you: not much of importance happened this weekend. But in college football, that’s when things really get weird. But it wasn’t all that weird either, so I had to get a bit creative with some of the categories this week. Some weeks are down weeks, and that’s okay. If nothing else, Week 12 perfectly set the table for the best week in all of sports: rivalry week. So before we jump in, a quick recap of the categories: Continue reading

Week 10 was an especially weird one. Despite multiple top 10 teams losing, nothing from last weekend felt particularly important.

The only way to enjoy this sport is to embrace the nonsense, the monkey business so to speak, and there was plenty of that.

The Coaching Carousel Has Already Started. Who’s Next?

We are two weeks into the 2021 college football season (kind of), and we’ve already had two coaches fired. We’ve finally reached a point where coaches are never safe and silly season never ends. Even though UConn and USC are polar opposite programs, the reason they moved on from their coaches is the same: they weren’t winning.

How We Talk About College Football Matters

There’s no arguing that college football is currently going through the largest period of change in its history.
