The Gator Bowl will feature two programs that have had up-and-down seasons. Notre Dame and South Carolina have each had big wins and head-scratching losses in 2022. They both ended the season with positive momentum, so it will be interesting to see who can sustain that on Friday and head to the offseason on a […]

2022 New Mexico Bowl
Andrew McCleary - Dec 14, 2022

The first Saturday of the Bowl season gives ESPN a chance to knock off the dust of the highlight tapes from 1980. None of the players in this game had even been born yet, so while fun to look back on, certainly has no bearing on the game coming up this Saturday. But when SMU […]

Happy Football Friday.  Today we have Football Friday Tailgate Treats: Army-Navy Beverages. Did you save last week’s Bacon, Meatballs, and More? This week we have a mix of beverages that have Army-Navy-inspired names or were invented by the Army or the Navy.  There might even be a little bit of military beverage history.  I hope you […]

Irish Have To Dominate Navy

If you haven’t been watching over the last month, this is a different Notre Dame team than what many saw in the first couple of weeks. Now, the Irish have to dominate Navy, and they have not been proficient in beating lesser teams this year. The Irish, fresh off a dominating win over then-fourth-ranked Clemson, […]

Disappointment. That was the word Army Head Coach Jeff Monken used most often in the moments after last week’s loss to Air Force. And that’s a recurring theme for the Army Black Knights this season. After all of the disappointments — giving a home game away against UTSA, coming off of a bye week flat […]

As Vince Lombardi once said: “Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work.”  Army Black Knight’s Marquel Broughton is the definition of hard work.  Broughton is a two-time captain and senior safety from Lawrenceville, Georgia.  His journey to West Point was not an easy one, but it […]

Army Visits Wake Forest
Mike Loveall - Oct 6, 2022

Coming off a disappointing loss to Georgia State, Army visits Wake Forest in a rematch of last year’s 70-56 offensive thriller.

On September 2, 2000, Bob Stoops and his Oklahoma Sooners were in Norman giving the UTEP Miners a beating. While 30 minutes North in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Jill Mabry was waiting for her doctor to arrive so she could deliver her son. Consequently, the doctor was delayed because he had to finish watching the Sooner game. […]

Kevin McGuffey - Sep 28, 2022

Picking Up Good Players Late Over the last few years, the December early signing period is where most recruits commit. Kentucky was no exception as they picked up 18 pledges.

Three-year starting quarterback and Big Ten West Champion are just two of the accomplishments listed in his bio on the team website. It also includes 37 games played and 31 games started.

Iowa Transfer Portal
Nick Lemkau - Sep 28, 2022

Just over three months ago, Wisconsin fired its head coach after a 2-3 start to the season. The dismissal of Paul Chryst was a surprise to many given his track record in Madison. He was 67-26 since the 2015 season, leading the Badgers to three Big Ten title games and a Rose Bowl. The shaky […]
