National Championship Game Preview

Welcome to the thunder dome.  All eyes will be on the mythical “Superdome” come Monday night as the National (SEC) Championship game transpires.  SEC West rumble.  Old coach versus new coach.  Honey Badger versus Richardson.  “Game of the Century Part Deux.”  Grab your popcorn, because this game is poised to be far better than any movie.

The majority of the country tuned in to the “Game of the Century Part 1” back on November 5th.  And unfortunately, many were disappointed by Round 1 of the heavily hyped game (I was not).  Well have no fear, the points will be here on Monday night.  With a month to prepare, despite phenomenal defenses, the O’s will at least put up one touchdown apiece (no touchdowns on November 5th).

Week 9 of the College Football was “mighty fine.”  It was highlighted by a Braxton Miller hail mary toss and a very gutsy triple overtime win by the Standford Cardinal at the Coliseum.  But this is the week we have all been waiting for.  The “Game of the Year” is set to take place in Tuscaloosa Saturday night.  Grab your popcorn.  There will be some fireworks when number one takes on number two.

Here are the marquee matchups.

Food for Thought 10-11-2011

By Josh Kramer

It is safe to say that the sporting world is booming right now.  Most of the major players are in play, and even the ones that aren’t (the NBA), are still making headlines.

Here are the main items that have caught my attention.

Super Bowl or Bust?

It is no secret that both the New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles were two teams expected to not only make the playoffs, but also to possibly play in the big game.  Lately though, things have gone on a downward spiral in a hurry for both heavily hyped teams. Continue reading

Shut the door on Week 4

The College Football season is about a third of the way in, and I for one have not been disappointed.  Big time players and big time teams have lived up to the hype thus far.  Primetime matchups have turned into classics.  And there is a still a whole lot more of where that came from on the way.  Who cares about conference realignment.  Let’s just enjoy the current system, while we still have it.

College Football Week 3: Third time is the charm

Notre Dame certainly hopes the third time is the charm as they take on a tough Michigan State Spartans team in South Bend.  The Fighting Irish are off to their first 0 and 2 start since 2007, and tempers appear to be rising for one of College Football’s most storied programs.  What didn’t Week 2 have?

Classic endings, unforgettable individual performances, and upsets galore.  Week 2 was what College Football is all about.  Luckily, Week 3 has the promise of being even better.

Here are the marquee matchups.

Are you ready for some football?  College Football is back and ready to take over your Saturdays until New Years.  The NFL can have your Sundays.  NCAA Football fanatics are fine with that.  Saturdays are GameDay.  They are made for College Football.  And of course the occasional, Thursday, Friday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday night games.  Do not even get me started on the shenanigans of non Saturday college football though.

As has become the tradition, I will provide you with my picks for the marquee matchups of each week.
