By J.P. Scott, 1 year 7 months ago
Week 1 of the 2015 college football season came and went without a whole lot of surprises. Don't get me wrong, there was some good football played. Then again, if you're like me, any football is good football. That said, nothing outrageous and earth shattering took place. What does that mean? In my opinion, it means we're due. Sounds like a good reason to make a few outrageous...

Akron Zips vs. Oklahoma Sooners Preview and Prediction

By Allen Kenney, 1 year 7 months ago

That led to a major shakeup in Bob Stoops...
