It was not the season Youngstown State had hoped for and there is a lot of work to be done.  However, nothing is quite refreshing as getting a road win in the regular season finale against the 15th ranked Salukis. As the Penguins end 2021 with a strong win over Southern Illinois, it was the […]

Irish Blowout Yellow Jackets, Eyeing CFP
Aidan Thomas - Nov 21, 2021

In the middle of the Irish blowout victory, Notre Dame got the ball back, up 38-0 with four minutes left in the second quarter, starting at their own 11-yard line. It’s not normally a time to be ultra-aggressive. But on the first play of the drive, quarterback Jack Coan dropped back to pass. The graduate […]

Rees’ Play Calling Sparking Irish Offensive Resurgence
Aidan Thomas - Nov 19, 2021

As the Notre Dame offense struggled at the start of the season, offensive coordinator Tommy Rees’ play calling and general coaching prowess came under fire.

Texas Tech Recruiting Reality Check
Andrew McCleary - Sep 27, 2021

Texas Tech lost to Texas before the game started by a score of 58-10. The average national ranking of Texas Tech recruiting classes of the last four years is 58th in the country. Texas has averaged the 10th ranked class. Surrendering 70 is never acceptable. Period. But the Red Raider’s ugly loss to their in-state […]
