Final College Football Playoff Rankings – The way they SHOULD look

  The campaign time is over. It’s time for the College Football Playoff Selection Committee to determine and announce who the four teams will be that compete for the National Championship. The process isn’t so cut and dry this time around. There are seven teams that have a legitimate claim on one of the four spots. Well, I should say there are four teams that have legitimate arguments for the last spot. In my eye, Alabama and Ohio State are locks, and Washington is very close to a lock. That…

College Football Power Rankings and Stock Report: Week 6

Sports & Swag’s College Football Power Rankings and Stock Report is back! And it couldn’t come at a better time, as three weeks from today (Nov. 1), the first College Football Playoff Rankings will be announced by the playoff selection committee. Right now, spots one through three are simple. Although, how you rank them may not be. Determining who’s number four is a bit tougher.

College Football Power Rankings and Stock Report – Week 6

They don’t call it Shakeup Saturday for nothing. In a weekend, where four of the top five teams in last week’s rankings lost, the most impressive team was arguably the Florida Gators. In the past couple of years, of the post-Urban Meyer era, the Florida Gators have lost a lot of that chomp that made them one of the nation’s elite teams. No longer was it as intimidating to play the Gators at The Swamp, and it just wasn’t very intimidating to play the Gators, period. The number of top-level…

College Football Power Rankings – Week 3

BYU Freshman QB, Tanner Mangum had already defied the odds once with his Hail Mary pass to senior wide receiver, Mitch Mathews to beat Nebraska. Despite Mathews’ size (6′-6″ 215), the odds of another Hail Mary being successful had to be gigantic. Well, how gigantic were the odds of anything remotely similar happening again? The very next week? But, that’s what happened. This time there was a different target in junior, Mitchell Juergens, and this time there was still time left on the clock. However, the results are the same.…

The College Football Pick 6 – Week 2

Week 2 of the college football season is here, and so is The College Football Pick 6 – Week 2.. Last week’s Pick 6 went 4-2, with wins from Northwestern, Notre Dame, UCLA, and BYU. The Cougars would have covered the 5.5, even without that incredible Hail Mary pass to beat Nebraska. But, it made the Pick 6 look better, since we predicted BYU straight up. The two losses came from Auburn and Arizona State. Up 31-10 early in the 4th quarter, Auburn looked like they would easily cover the…
