The state of Michigan is the epicenter for college football’s Week 7 slate. The annual rivalry between Michigan State and Michigan is always a must-see matchup. However, the stakes are even higher in 2015. The Spartans and Wolverines are...

Mike Riley
Sitting at 2-4 with two conference losses is quite possibly the worst case scenario for the beginning of the Mike Riley era. Plenty of fans (not even those of the Nebraska persuasion) have made it clear they think the Cornhuskers botched his hire,...

Week 6 gave us plenty of outrageousness, however, much of it took place away from the field. A couple of coaching vacancies and the loss of a starting quarterback on a contender due to PEDs dominated the headlines. Week 7 is set up to be...

College football’s coaching carousel is already in motion. Five FBS head coaching positions are open prior to Week 6 and several more are expected to change coaches by the end of the season. With the carousel moving fast, it won’t be...

First there were rumors about Rick Kaczenski (a Nebraska football defensive line coach under Bo Pelini) potentially leaking unflattering messages about the current staff to their players. Then former defensive lineman Jason Peter outed him on...

Northwestern is dipping into its past this Saturday. The Wildcats will wear retro uniforms against Iowa, which are inspired by their 1995 team. The 1995 team was one of the most successful in program history, as Gary Barnett guided...

So many Nebraska football fans have already thrown in the towel on the 2015 season and hey, I can understand why. After four heartbreaking losses, holding onto hope just seems like a recipe for more grief. The cries for Mike Riley’s head...

Numbers and statistics are a huge part of college football. Every Sunday, reading updated box scores and stats is like Christmas for fans and media members. Some stats like total offense and total defense are overrated, but each help paint a...

Week 6 of the college football season is officially in the books. And as usual, the weekend slate of games didn’t disappoint. Florida State, Utah, TCU and Tennessee made critical stops late in the fourth quarter to preserve a win, while...

At this point, it’s kind of impressive. Amazing, really. How many ways do you find yourself in position to win a football game only to have it ripped from your mitts in the coldest way possible? Gut punches, one after another and the...

Don’t look now, but the Iowa Hawkeyes have quickly jumped out to a 5-0 start after going into a hostile environment and beating then-No. 19 Wisconsin by a final score of 6-10 last Saturday. Although it wasn’t the most impressive of...

8-0 last weekend. Yup, I'm going to soak that one in. The worst part of going 8-0 is knowing that it will never happen again — sort of like being a Mets fan this October. But I digress. On to Week 6 where emotional letdowns...

Let's be honest, nobody saw this game coming. Back in August, few people outside of the Northwestern locker room expected anything other than maybe mediocrity from the Wildcats in 2015. On the flip side, there may have been excitement for the...

Saturday’s meeting in Lincoln between Nebraska and Wisconsin was billed in August as one of the Big Ten’s must-see matchups and potentially an elimination game for the West Division. That preseason storyline hasn’t quite panned...

The 2015 season has not gone the way Jerry Kill and the Minnesota Golden Gophers had planned or even hoped thus far. Both losses have come to ranked opponents by a combined score of 50-17. All three of Minnesota's wins were by exactly three...

The Indiana Hoosiers are coming off a wildly entertaining game against defending national champion Ohio State, and it should have caught the attention of Penn State. The Hoosiers pushed the Buckeyes nearly to the limit last week but now must...

As it pertains to the 2015 Ohio State Buckeyes, I have been asked the following question: "Are these 'escapes' grating at you or do just think it's the growing pains associated with the development of THIS team?"...

What’s that old saying? If there’s smoke there’s fire? You’d swear something was ablaze over the past day or so in Lincoln. It turns out that rumors of former coaches dumping metaphorical toxic waste into the Nebraska...
