2015 ACC Football Schedule Analysis

Never before has scheduling been a bigger issue than the 2014 College Football Playoff.

 

The committee clearly took a stance on Baylor’s weak non-conference matchups and it cost the Bears a chance at the national championship. That shouldn’t ever be the issue in the ACC with Notre Dame and a litany of constant SEC foes dotting the non-conference slate.

College Basketball Expert Poll: Who are the Best Announcers?

March Madness is upon us, which means a healthy dose of quick channel surfing ... or switching among live streams, if that’s your thing.

The Big 12 should be an interesting league to follow in 2015. Although the conference was left out of the final four of the college football playoff last season, Baylor and TCU will be back in the mix once again in 2015. And of course, the league should have depth with Oklahoma and Texas looking to rebound, as well as an Oklahoma State team that is set to improve behind sophomore quarterback Mason Rudolph.

Running backs are stealing the NFL headlines this offseason.
Demarco Murray, LeSean McCoy, Adrian Peterson are not worth the money

The sky isn’t falling.

 

When it comes to running backs, however, that certainly feels like the case in Philadelphia, Dallas and Minnesota.

College Basketball Expert Poll: Which Coach is on the Rise?

College basketball coaches are always in a process of becoming.

 

Every coach in the profession is looking for the next milestone. Well, every coach except for Mike Krzyzewski.

 

If you follow the sport closely, you probably have an opinion on the best coach without a national title, the best coach without a Final Four, the best coach outside of a power conference, the best coach under 40, or whatever the case may be.
