A new era of football begins in Lincoln this season as Mike Riley takes over at Nebraska.
The Huskers boast the best roster in the division and could be considered the front-runner in the West. Since joining the Big Ten, Nebraska hasn't gotten any favors from the schedule and that could once again be an issue in 2015.
For a sport that’s supposed to be in a state of crisis, college basketball has given us a doozy of a final weekend.
Criticism of the sport has been almost as big as the season itself in 2014-15. The game is too slow. The final minutes of the game stretch on forever. The officiating is inconsistent. The game has few household names actually playing the game.
All of these will be lingering issues, but not until Tuesday.
The only thing worse than the NFL Combine is a pro day.
It’s like the Combine but with home-field advantage. And no defense.
Jameis Winston’s 2015 pro day was rather uneventful and did very little to change his stock as the presumptive No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. That’s good because a pro day shouldn’t do much of anything to anyone’s stock.
Winston completed 92-of-102 passes against air and a few household cleaning items.
Expectations are soaring into the summer for the Tennessee Volunteers.
Butch Jones has had as big an influx of young talent in the last two years as any team in the nation. Which is why so many might be quick to prematurely mention his team as a possible contender in the SEC East.
Quarterback is easily the position with the most pressure in any college football season. Whether it’s a quarterback fighting to keep a starting job, replacing a standout from the prior season or just looking to elevate their overall play, signal-callers will be securitized and watched closely all offseason.
For the second time in five seasons, Oregon came up 60 minutes short of a national championship.
This time the Ducks have to rebuild without arguably the greatest player in the history of their program. Five starters are back on defense and seven are back on offense, but the loss of Marcus Mariota obviously cannot be understated.
Coaching changes are a big part of any college football offseason. The 2015 carousel was relatively quiet with just 15 changes. However, from 2009-13, there were at least 21 coaching moves each year. While it’s too early in the season to know how many changes could be coming at the end of 2015, it’s never too soon to take a look at which coaches are on the hot seat.
