Best time of the year: college football is upon us

College Football

The great singer Andy Williams wrote the song "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and while he probably meant that for the Christmas season, for college football fans across the country waking up today, that applies to today. After nearly eight months without college football, it returns today with vengeance and a number of good game.

First Saturday of college football a fun one indeed

College Football

It took a nearly the entire first half, but at the end of the day, I and other UT fans alike were able to breathe easy and take in the full first Saturday of college football without the embarrassment of a loss to New Mexico State.

USC’s firing of Lane Kiffin below the belt

College Football

If you haven’t heard about the firing of former USC head coach Lane Kiffin, where have you been the past 24 hours plus? In a stunning, yet not too shocking, move early Sunday morning, USC fired Kiffin after the Trojans started the 2013 season with a 3-2 start, including losing their first two games in the Pac-12. USC fans have been clamoring for him to get practically since the season began. But what was surprising, and very disappointing as well, is how Kiffin was fired.

Early October Heisman watch

College Football

The calendar just turned October and of course it's never too early to take a look at how the Heisman race could shape up come mid-December. Unlike last year, this year's Heisman field is stacked with worthy contenders thus far and there's a good chance that there will be five finalists in New York waiting to hear their name called to be inducted into the greatest group of college football players. For this list I had to narrow it down to my top five, but it most likely will change week to week. So who's starting off in my top five (listed in no particular order).

Heisman watch after week seven

College Football

Week Seven turned out to be the week of the upsets across college football. Texas beat OU. Utah shocked Stanford. Ole Miss nearly pulled off the upset over Texas A&M. Missouri beat Georgia, then lost their quarterback for the season. This past weekend also helped weed out some of the Heisman contenders. Some rose to the top while others fell almost out of the picture. So here's my Heisman list after the weekend.

Virginia Tech vs. Tennessee at Bristol should be a sight to see

College Football, NASCAR

The biggest college football news from last week wasn't the fact that Texas beat Oklahoma or Utah upset Stanford or that Georgia's injuries finally caught up them in their loss to Missouri. No. Instead, that award went to the news that the Tennessee Volunteers and Virginia Tech Hockies would square off in a game in 2016 at the famed Bristol Motor Speedway. Yes, you read that right. There will be a football game at a NASCAR track.

Targeting rule not the way to go for NCAA

College Football

As the dangers of playing football have become more and more known in recent years, the NCAA decided to see what they can do to prevent injuries, specifically to the head and neck area, and possibly subside some fears about playing the game.

Heisman race after week eight

College Football

So this past Saturday was just a continuation of the previous Saturday's upset craziness. A number of ranked teams went down, a number of SEC teams expected to compete for the conference title lost and some Heisman hopefuls took a big hit. So, who are in the top five for the Heisman and who fell out.

With two weeks left, BCS can still dish out some chaos

College Football

The Bowl Championship Series is one of the most polarizing systems this side of the 21st century. Possibly more divisive than congress and politics, the BCS always manages to make one, or more, fan base mad while delivering an early Christmas present for another. This year, the last of the BCS as we know it, we could be headed for another season of bowl and national championship chaos. Get your popcorn ready.

BCS run ends in a thrilling Florida State win

College Football

It took all of eight years to finally get a game worthy of being called a national championship. But to many people, it was certainly worth the wait. After being down 21-3 in the first half and with absolutely none of the momentum, Florida State somehow found a way to comeback and win in the Rose Bowl in a, dare I say, Texas-esque fashion.
