The Razorbacks pounded the Longhorns 31-7 in late December.
Bret Bielema Receives Championship Belt to Celebrate Arkansas' Bowl Win Over Texas

Arkansas made quite the statement when it pounded Texas 31-7 in the Texas Bowl on Dec. 29. The Razorbacks thoroughly dominated their old Southwest Conference rivals, and while bowl games aren’t necessarily the best indicator of teams, it was a huge victory for coach Bret Bielema.

 

Fast forward to April and Bielema and Arkansas is still celebrating the victory over Texas.

 

Don't Be Stupid Tampa Bay, Take Jameis Winston

The Bucs would be foolish to pass on the Florida State quarterback.
Don't Be Stupid Tampa Bay, Take Jameis Winston

Jameis Winston is going to be the new starting quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

 

This time of year, narratives floated to the media are intentionally misleading so it’s hard to know what to believe. If anything.

It’s here. NFL Draft week is finally here.

 

For three straight days, 32 fanbases will watch the future of the NFL fall into place as 256 former college players hope to hear their team called between Thursday and Saturday. Super Bowls are won and lost every year on draft weekend and 2015 won’t be any different.

Dak Prescott takes the No. 1 spot.

A handful of SEC teams enter the offseason with uncertainty at quarterback, but there’s no doubt about which player belongs at the top of the rankings for 2015. Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott is the reigning first-team All-SEC quarterback and one of the top signal-callers in college football for 2015.

SEC fans like to brag about conference depth. On that, the NFL can probably agree.

 

No league has been more prolific in the NFL Draft than the SEC in the last decade. The league has had 466 players selected in the last 10 drafts, 63 more than any other conference.

 

In 2014, seven SEC teams had a team selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. Ten teams have produced at least one-first round pick in the last three drafts.

 

Ranking ACC Teams in the NFL Draft since 2005

No surprise here: Florida State dominates on draft day

In the last three seasons, Florida State has rocketed past the field in the ACC, becoming the league’s only true national title contender the last two seasons.

 

The Seminoles have also dominated draft day for the league, no easy feat with teams like Miami and Clemson churning out draft picks.

 

Florida State produced 54 picks in the last 10 NFL Drafts, eight more than any other team in the league.

As far as the NFL Draft goes, the Pac-12 is still USC’s league to rule.

 

Even as Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, Arizona and Arizona State have elevated their level of play in recent seasons, USC still casts a shadow on the rest of the conference in the NFL Draft.

 

Ranking Big Ten Teams in the NFL Draft since 2005

Ohio State has commanding lead on draft day

If the national championship and potential preseason No. 1 ranking weren’t enough of a sign, Ohio State football is back on draft day, too.

 

Hard to believe, but the Buckeyes produced only one first-round pick (defensive end Cameron Heyward, selected 31st in 2011) in the draft between 2010 and 2013.

 

The Buckeyes had two first-round picks last season, the first time they had multiple first rounders since 2009. This year’s draft might not add too much to Ohio State’s first-round tally, but the wave is coming in 2016.

 

UCLA Student Willingly Gets Tackled By Linebacker Myles Jack (For a Good Reason)

This student had a unique campaign video.
UCLA Student Willingly Takes a Hit From Linebacker Myles Jack

Danny Siegel is campaigning to be a student representative at UCLA, so he decided to take a hit from linebacker Myles Jack.

 

Yes, you read that correctly.

 

Jack is a likely All-American linebacker in 2015 and one of the Pac-12’s top returning players. Needless to say, Siegel probably felt this one the next morning.

 

Election commercials are usually must-skip television, but we give this one a thumbs up.
