First play of the game Jameis Winston will take the snap, trip, and accidentally kick the ball into his own endzone, were an Auburn player having been blocked out of the play will be standing to catch the ball for a touchdown. Expect plays like this to happen at least seven times. That's just how Au...

That Utah team was really good, undefeated and had some quality wins behind them. I think they ended up finishing #2 behind Florida in the AP. Didn't help matters that Andre Smith was out for the game and Paul Kruger was the defensive end for Utah on that side. If you've seen what he's done with the...

Don't think there need to be a scheme change, a personnel change is more like it. Bama didn't have a great NT this year to swallow up two blocks. Ivory did okay, but he didn't clog up the middle against Auburn. To AU's credit, their offensive line is playing lights out and were seriously underrated ...

I wouldn't be surprised if the "power programs" start hiring people to lobby the voters all year long. They better hope that they've selected some honest voters or a pay for vote system will quickly be in place.

Pretty simple, It's a throw in for the unions. Most union pay scales, at least in the north and midwest, are tied to the minimum wage. As minimum wage goes up so does the pay of union members, usually non proportionally and by percentage.
This has been why union reps are always the first to get b...

This amazed me stats wise. ND relies on the run but they aren't very efficient. Lots of run attempts per TD. They must pass a lot in the red zone.
Riddick only gets a TD every 36 carries as opposed to Lacy scoring every 11.5.

If you're a stats kind of guy, it looks like from this our biggest statistical advantage is scoring offense. This is a pretty cool stat site.
I didn't know that we had such a big advantage on pretty much every statistical category.
Hell we are +173 in scoring.
