By J.P. Scott, 1 year 1 week ago
I often find myself watching college football games and wondering if a certain coach could do better — or at the very least — be a better fit elsewhere. Plenty of coaches have success wherever they go, but that doesn't make some of the stops awkward or eventually stale. I've put together a list of five successful college coaches, who despite their success...

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 1 week ago
Ohio State taught the college football world an important lesson last season: Don’t count out the one-loss teams after a September defeat.

He was a senior-to-be, one of few near locks to start and hopefully could take some of the young guns under his wing. Perhaps those who voted for the lineman are having second thoughts following the Huskers’ gut-wrenching 36-33 overtime loss to the Miami Hurricanes. There were plenty of...

An Open Letter to the Concerned Nebraska Football Fan

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 year 1 week ago
To whom it may concern, I knew we’d have this talk at some point during the season. I was hoping it wouldn’t be this soon, but part of me is glad it is. The Cornhuskers have lost two games that they didn’t have to this year and that’s tough.

By Chris Dougherty, 1 year 1 week ago
It’s been said that there’s no better time to act than in the present. For the Rutgers' athletic department, that sentiment couldn’t have ever been more true than it is in this very moment: the present. With the news breaking that the school has suspended head football coach Kyle Flood for three games, and fined him $50,000 for a violation of administrative rules, the...

This Season Iowa Has Difference Makers on Offense, That's the Difference

By Rob Donaldson, 1 year 1 week ago
A lot has changed for the Iowa Hawkeyes in one year especially on offense, but what exactly has changed? Well, the quarterback position is no longer in flux with C.J. Beathard cemented as the unanimous starter and then there’s the running back position, where former incumbent running back Mark Weisman has been replaced by a pair of running backs, LeShun Daniels and Jordan Canzeri.
