Hi De Hi De Hide De Ho, friends and moochers! As the flaming ball of gas in the sky rises above our planet and offers us another beautiful day of existence, I’d like to thank you for tuning in to listen to me, another flaming ball of gas. Today is an even more glorious day than usual, because football – the crazy, unpredictable, exciting football we all know and love – is BACK. [Read more…]

Another weekend of football is in the books, so let’s discuss what we’ve learned, as we sit in our underoos, covered in barbecue sauce, amongst the leftover chicken wings. I’m kidding, of course – if there are ANY leftover chicken wings, you’re doing football watching wrong, should be forced to order the most unmanly “sweet onion chicken teriyaki” flavor of wings that exists and wash them down with girly looking purple drinks served in a plastic coconut, and most importantly are disqualified from ever being my friend.

Way Too Early Top Ten for the 2016 CFB Season

By: David Parks

This is the way too early preseason top ten.  Chances are I don’t like your team and obviously have them too low.  SPOILER:  No poll really matters until mid-October (Except this one).

Off we go…

The real reason Nick Saban is smiling? The #1 ranking in this poll obviously

The real reason Nick Saban is smiling? The #1 ranking in this poll obviously

1) Alabama

Yes Derrick Henry is gone. Yes they’re likely losing three defensive linemen to the first round along with their middle linebacker. Yes their defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach is leaving. But we’ve seen this script before, and when has it mattered? The Tide are stocked at every position on the field and until the head coach himself leaves, it won’t matter which of his assistants come and go. [Read more…]

Reid Kerr: Falcons -3.5 over New Orleans. The Saints play like drunken tourists at home, and Atlanta is undefeated. This seems like a trap game, so I’m walking right into it.

Tony James: People should start fading these but I’m sticking with betting against Mike Vick. I’ll take the class of the NFL only giving -3 at Pittsburgh.

Chris Stuckey: Colts +10 over Patriots. I’ll take a home team getting 10 points at home all day, errday.

Johnny Griffith: Miami (-7) over Jacksonville - Miami squeaked by the Columbia Indigenous Peoples last week but that’s no reason to assume that the Ferocious Felines of North Florida stand a chance to stay within two scores in this contest. Miami gets Miller going early, Tannehill looks like the potential top 5 QB he is this week, and a boy named Suh (Mr. Ndamukong if you’re nasty) says good Knight to Blake Bortles. [Read more…]

Previewing the Big Games: College Football Week 2

By Aaron Hyden
PSDC College Football Contributor

After a very eventful first week of the college football season, with title contenders showing that they have some more work to do, we’re already at the eve of the second week. Opening jitters should be moving out of the way by now, and the truth (positive or negative) should start to shine through starting here. We have some big games to look forward to, but there are three that stand out above the rest, and those are the games I’ll be breaking down here. When the weekend is over, I’ll be back to break everything down yet again, hopefully improving on my 2-1 prediction record from last week.

No. 19 Oklahoma at No. 23 Tennessee: With both teams on the rise and coming off of impressive performances last week, eyes are set on this game, with people looking to the future. The winner shows that they might be a legitimate contender on the season, while the loser goes back to the drawing board.

Tennessee rushed for 399 yards last week, nearly having three players top the 100-yard mark, with Alvin Kamara going for 144, Jalen Hurd getting 123 and QB Joshua Dobbs getting 89 yards of his own. It was the school’s best single-game rushing performance in over 20 years, but now, that running game goes up against an Oklahoma run defense that ranked 11th in the country last season in yards allowed and 10th in yards per game allowed. The Volunteers won’t reach 400 rushing yards again this week, but if they can get some sort of consistency with their three-headed monster, you have to like their chances. [Read more…]

Project Shanks College Football Week 1 Review

By Aaron Hyden
PSDC College Football Contributor

A very newsworthy first week of the college football season is now in the books, and before our eyes can look ahead to the second week, we have to look back at what we’ve learned from the first set of games that took place across the country. From the players to the teams, and everything in between, here are the biggest takeaways after college football’s first week, in no particular order.

1. A few early contenders for the National Championship struggled in their first games. Even in victory. TCU, Baylor, Michigan State, Auburn and Oregon were all ranked in the top 10 to start the season, and even though they all came out victorious, none of them had an easy road to get there, and questions popped up left and right.
