Clemson wants redemption, so does Bama defense

Clemson wants redemption, and they want it bad. Just listen to guys like senior linebacker Ben Boulware, and you feel their pain. It’s been Clemson’s driving force all season. In fact, there’s a banner that hangs in Clemson’s football indoor facility. It reads “National Finalists.” Head coach Dabo Swinney, says it’s a reminder for how special the Tigers’ 14-1 ‘2015 season truly was. But, to guys like Boulware, it means the Tigers finished second. It means they didn’t get the job done. But, who would have ever thought the driving…

College Football Playoff Selection Sunday – Final Rankings

After a fairly predictable Championship Saturday, we’re pretty much in the same spot with the same four teams as we have been for the last couple of weeks. The four teams are a foregone conclusion. How those four teams, or more likely how three of the four teams are seeded could be a different story. Despite the predictability, there were several things to take away from Saturday’s games. Iowa is legit. The Hawkeyes were widely looked at as the team that didn’t belong in the Top 4 due to their…

College Football Power Rankings and Stock Report – Week 8

There is a flip-flop at the top of the rankings after a pretty good ‘Showdown Saturday’. Unless you haven’t heard, maybe the biggest news week was a QB change at Ohio State. About time. That was at the top of the rankings. At the bottom of the rankings, Memphis made the biggest strides. They enter the rankings for the first time after their huge win over Ole Miss at the Liberty Bowl. The Tigers are 6-0 and rolling in a much better than advertised AAC. STOCK UP –  The AAC…

College Football is just over a month away from kicking off. That means it’s time to kickoff the Sports & Swag Football Preseason Spectacular! We’ll lead off with the Preseason Top 25 Power Rankings. Can anyone catch the Buckeyes this season? Things aren’t starting off well in Columbus with four players suspended for the Virginia Tech game.

Everett Golson’s ‘free agency’ move from South Bend to Tallahassee may not make a huge difference for FSU…

Everett Golson, graduated from Notre Dame this past weekend. On Tuesday, he became a Florida State Seminole. That’s just the way it is on the college football landscape these days. Whether, you agree with college football’s version of ‘Free Agency’ or not, it seems to be here to stay. Quite frankly, I’m having a hard time understanding why it’s such a bad thing for a student-athlete to have the ability to find a better situation for his or herself, regarding their academic or athletic future. Especially, if they’ve completed they’re…
