Seven-Step Drop: Whacky College Football Playoff Scenarios Now in Play

By Bryan Fischer, 10 months 2 weeks ago
Entering Week 11, it appeared we were barreling toward the most drama-free postseason final four in the young College Football Playoff’s history. Much of the same was expected from a relatively ho-hum slate of games.   Three of the top four were at home and only one was playing a ranked (and three-loss) team. The other member of the group was on the road against a lackluster team...

By J.P. Scott, 10 months 2 weeks ago
Oh, what a fine mess we have on our hands — and I'm loving every minute of it. I'm the guy who likes to pull up a tattered old lawn chair, light a cheap cigar, drink bottom-shelf whiskey straight out of a plastic bottle and watch the world burn. I love when what people thought were master plans fail. The chaos excites me. It's what gets me out of bed in the morning.  ...

By Jim Weber, 10 months 2 weeks ago
As we approach Thanksgiving and the end of the college football regular season, it’s clear that winter is not just literally coming — it’s also metaphorically approaching for the four-team College Football Playoff system with more doom in the air than “Game of Thrones.”   Let me preface the rest of this column by saying I don’t think an eight-...

Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. Louisville Cardinals Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 10 months 2 weeks ago
In the second College Football Playoff rankings released this past Tuesday, the Louisville Cardinals moved up one spot from seventh to sixth. It appears the Cardinals will need Clemson to possibly lose two out of its last three games of the season to gain one of the four playoff spots at the end of the season.   But Louisville (8-1, 6-1 ACC) also must continue to handle its own business,...

Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Clemson Tigers Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 10 months 2 weeks ago
The 2016 Clemson Tigers are hard to figure out. Early in the season they played down to their competition, but after a big win over Louisville and a blowout of Boston College, they seemed to be back on track. But the narrow victory over NC State put doubt back in many people’s minds. Now that the Tigers have won in Tallahassee and drilled Syracuse, the vibes are good in the South...

By Antwan Staley, 10 months 2 weeks ago

NC State Wolfpack vs. Syracuse Orange Preview and Prediction

By Adam Kurkjian, 10 months 2 weeks ago
A lot hangs in the balance as NC State visits Syracuse at the Carrier Dome.   Namely, bowl hopes, as a win this Saturday afternoon for either team would go a long way toward achieving postseason play.   However, both squads enter at 4-5 and have to recover from some serious adversity suffered either last week or, in NC State's case, over the last month.   The Wolfpack,...
