    We'll Take Baylor ( 6) and the Accompanying Kick to the Adrenal Gland

    ​Okay, let's do this. And by "this" I mean let's make some moolah. The good ol' illegal fun way, shall we?  In 2008 I lost every penny of my virtual $10,000. In 2009 I wound up losing only $150. In 2010 I netted a cool $5,000. By my math, that's a bottom line of ... oh, who's coun ... More >>

    Auburn 22, Oregon 19: My Top 10 Observer-ations

    ​10. Cam Newton = Overrated. I take it back. He ain't better than Vince Young was at Texas. 9. Sure he's corny at times, but I love me some "Big Game" Brent Musburger. 8. Props to Auburn coach Gene Chizik for running a play to wind the clock down and set up a walk-off 19-yard field goal by We ... More >>

    Holy Nevada, The Frogs Smell Like Roses. And the Big East.

    Think it's been a wacky college football season? Michigan, Florida, Southern Cal and Texas are a combined 26-17 22. And TCU (which is apparently jumping to the Big East in 2012) - at the very worst - is going to the Rose Bowl. Couldn't believe my eyes early Saturday morning. Despite a stirrin ... More >>

    TCU BCS = WTF?!

    ​TCU is by far the best college football team in Texas. The Horned Frogs could have easily won the Big 12 this season. TCU, in fact, can beat any team in the country. But even with the best defense in the country, TCU is defenseless against the BCS. With another week of results from coll ... More >>

    BCS Playoffs: Quarterfinals/Semifinals

    ​See, that's the problem with the current bowl system. Even though they're 12-0 and good enough to beat any team in the nation, a TCU team playing for nothing but a bag of Tostitos shows up unmotivated and loses, 17-10, in the Fiesta Bowl. If last night's game was a BCS quarterfinal, mind you ... More >>

    BCS Playoffs: Round of 16

    ​While we're trying to figure out Florida coach Urban Meyer (one day it's his health; the next he just doesn't want to cede control) and muster up interest in this afternoon's Independence Bowl (Texas A&M and Georgia are a combined 13-11), let's again daydream of a world void of ... More >>
