By Steven Lassan, 6 months 1 week ago
College football’s Week 12 slate begins with two MAC games on Tuesday and two more on Wednesday night, followed by an intriguing showdown between Louisville and Houston on Thursday night.

By J.P. Scott, 6 months 1 week ago
The third edition of the 2016 College Football Playoff rankings were released on Tuesday night. As I mentioned earlier in the week, this whole process is a mess — largely because there is no set roadmap in terms of how to get to the playoff. What we saw on Tuesday night only reinforced that.   Here is what stuck out to me in both the College Football Playoff rankings and the other...

College Football's Post-Week 11 Bowl Projections

By Steven Lassan, 6 months 1 week ago
Week 11 provided its share of upsets for the 2016 college football season.

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...

The College Football Playoff Process is a Flaming Mess of Uncertainty

By J.P. Scott, 6 months 1 week 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.  ...

Winter is Coming for College Football’s Four-Team Playoff

By Jim Weber, 6 months 1 week 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-...

It is time to make the final push to the Big Ten Championship Game for Wisconsin, and the schedule could not be much more favorable for the Badgers on their quest to return to Indianapolis for the fourth time since the conference launched its championship game in 2011.
