By Braden Gall, 3 months 1 day ago
Recruiting rankings matter. They are not a guarantee of future success but they are the foundation every national championship has been built upon.

By Braden Gall, 5 months 2 weeks ago
The Pac-12 entered the season with eyes on knocking off the SEC as the best league in college football. While that may not happen until Oregon knocks off both Florida State and Alabama in the College Football Playoff, the Pac-12 has clearly separated itself as the best league outside of the SEC and has set itself up to be on par with the SEC if the Ducks can win two more games. Star...
