Why Big Ten fans should root for Ed O'Bannon

The Big Ten has the advantage of being rich and the disadvantage of lacking lacking adequate supplies of local talent. Fans of conference should look across the pond to see a world in which teams...

The Iron Bowl is becoming perfect

Alabama-Auburn has always been one of the great rivalries in a sport full of them. But a confluence of factors should elevate the series into football nirvana.

Explaining the World Cup for college football fans

College football fan, you don't need to be a world soccer expert to enjoy the next month. All you need is a little imagination.

Was college football better then or now?

If you're a child of the '80s or '90s (or earlier), you probably miss a lot about the way college football was when you were young. But overall, has it gotten better?

Workhorse backs aren't obsolete ... yet

College runners and fans alike might miss the days of running backs being taken in the first round, but the evolution to running back by committee is both a good thing and a return to football's...

Don't overlook Aaron Murray, NFL

Johnny Manziel has the talent, Zach Mettenberger has the physique, and AJ McCarron has the rings. But if you're looking for an SEC quarterback the NFL might be underrating, we think we've found the...

Why scholarships are not enough

What happens when less-qualified students have to compete against more-qualified students? And what does that imply for those athletes whose academic performance lags even further behind?

'Game of Thrones' as college football

You like college football. You like Game of Thrones. That's all there is to it.

Why can't SEC hoops be like SEC football?

The nation's best conference in college sports' premier revenue-generator is far from the best at the No. 2 sport. How does that happen?

How the union could kill the NCAA's dumbest rule

You know how college athletes have to sit out a year when changing schools, and how that serves no one besides coaches hoping to deter players from leaving? A player union could kill that rule...

The SEC recruiting invasion

Not content with recruiting from the country's most fertile region, SEC programs are getting better and better at pilfering recruits from outside of the Southeast.

The case for the Playoff committee

The NFL routinely rewards undeserving champions and gives playoff spots to inferior teams. College football's Playoff structure has a number of flaws, but the use of human judgment as opposed to...

The great team vs. the great story

If Florida State wins tonight, then we ask, "is this one of the best teams in recent college football history?" And if Auburn wins, then we ask, "is this one of the best stories in ... all of sports?"

If Ohio State can be jumped, so can Auburn

Should a one-loss SEC champion be able to jump an undefeated Big Ten champion in the rankings? Maybe, but not if that SEC champion is 2013 Auburn or 2013 Missouri. And if these SEC teams can jump...

Georgia-Auburn rivalry worth saving

No, it's not time to stop talking about what will likely be remembered as the best game of 2013. Except for Georgia fans. We're sorry, Georgia fans.

Legacy, logic or laziness?

Alabama holds almost every first-place vote over Florida State, just as it did over Oregon. That's because Alabama started the season No. 1 after winning the national championship last year. But is...

Michigan State's march toward Ohio State

Michigan State can take control of the Legends Division with a win on Saturday, and that's good for the Buckeyes' national championship ambitions.

Don't blame refs for this rules disaster

Rules must change in order to make players safer, but handing out 15-yard penalties for not doing anything wrong isn't the way to do it. And it's not the referee's fault, anyway.

Welcome back, ACC

The league as a whole might not be elite, but the fact that the ACC has three national title contenders at the halfway pole of the season is a step in the right direction.

The rebirth of Aaron Murray

If Georgia's defense can turn it around like its quarterback did, the Dawgs could make another national title run.

More to Miles and Richt than LSU-Georgia

Too often, we let results in big games, especially once that come down to fourth-quarter decisions, say too much about the state of a program and its coach.

Why this schedule looks so weak

Blame bad luck, greedy athletic directors, and the man in the mirror.

Bama shows A&M what it takes

Texas A&M has a great offense. Alabama has a great team. Kevin Sumlin got a first-hand lesson at what he needs to continue to develop in College Station.

In defense of wanting it all

Are Tide supporters crazy for insisting on national championships every single year? No. You would act the same way.

What we learned about clutchness

Florida's turnover margin and Notre Dame's red zone defense were the keys to their success in 2012. Both teams came crashing down to earth in those departments on Saturday.

Can't beat 'em? Hire 'em

A recent trend: college athletic departments hiring away NCAA investigators.

Why is Johnny different?

A mostly subjective explanation for why I wanted a hypothetically-guilty Cam Newton to get suspended, but I want a hypothetically-guilty Johnny Manziel to play every game. Share your own feelings...

2013's dumbest impending arguments

From the new ejections rule to Johnny Football, it's time to prepare for another college football season filled with yelling.

The SEC should schedule like the World Cup


Steve Spurrier and Les Miles have voiced concerns in recent years about unfair cross-divisional schedules in the SEC. Flexible scheduling could solve this problem and create an epic series of games...

College football and Mad Men

Is being a college football fan today very different than being a square advertising executive in 1968? Aren't we all just trying to get a grasp on where the culture is headed?
