News has come down that the Big Ten and ACC are looking at conference-only schedules for the 2020 season. Other conferences are waiting a bit to make any decisions on the season but are also probably watching to see what these two conferences will end up doing. As much as the sports media wanted the… Continue reading Well, shit. What now?
Sometimes I wonder why I even bother. I never get it right. Ever. But hey, I have predicted pretty much the entire schedule so I might as well do a brain dump here to, I don’t know, entertain you? This may get a little more attention since there is nothing fucking going on these days… Continue reading Predicting the TSN college football schedule: like picking the 99-1 longshot at the Kentucky Derby
If you don’t know what that is, it’s the USGA on FOX. Events like the U.S. Open, the U.S. Senior Open, the U.S. Women’s Open and various other amateur events under the USGA umbrella were to be only shown on FOX. With the U.S. Open being moved to September this year, it forced FOX to… Continue reading This could turn out to be something interesting for FOX
The SEC on CBS will be no longer in a few years. Surprising but CBS is obviously not wanting to overpay for the property. This probably means the big SEC game of the week will be on ABC/ESPN in a few years. How will this change things? You do have to wonder if the stranglehold… Continue reading You have to wonder how things will change at ABC
So now we know. CBS has decided not to renew the SEC on CBS contract after the 2023 season. That came quicker than anyone thought it would. They keep saying they are “going in a different direction with their sports coverage” but that translates to “it would cost too much fucking money.” I don’t fully… Continue reading OK now that we know when the SEC on CBS ends, do we…Celebrate? Honour? Demonize?
If you don’t know who these guys are well….I guess that just means you never watched wrestling (same thing I have now said two years running for the final post of this series). No, Degeneration X isn’t the greatest stable of all-time and no, their “invasion” of WCW was not important at all (despite what… Continue reading Most Important Games of the 2020 College Football Season – The Final Portion
I think that’s the French translation (full disclosure: I was just average at French in Grade 9 and never took it afterwards). No fun picture or huge rant to start this post. Just getting right down to the schedule predictions, as wrong as they may be. This is the true start of conference play with… Continue reading Most Important Games of the 2020 College Football Season – Parte Trois
Hey remember when I mentioned that we were getting closer to the NCAA Football video game series returning? It now looks like that may not be the case. Even with the NCAA allowing players to receive money for their name and likeness, without school licensing, the players would not be able to be represented in… Continue reading Most Important Games of the 2020 College Football Season – The Second Part
Alright it’s time to get to the good stuff finally! Actual college football posts about the next season…whenever that may begin. As cathartic as this feels, we really have no idea what we are looking at for the 2020 season. The schedules are out, at least in terms of what days the games will be… Continue reading Most Important Games of the 2020 College Football Season – Part I
OK so this is how the 2020 NFL Draft started. Roger Goodell in his pretty nice basement printing out the names he was given through email or Zoom or something on those NFL draft cards and telling the world which team drafting whom. It was definitely different but again, everything is different these days. The… Continue reading Well that was different – the (relatively short) NFL Draft recap
To be honest, this draft kind of snuck up on me, like I am sure it has for many out there. Considering everything that has happened with this Coronavirus pandemic, this event, which is normally pretty big in scale, has become a slight afterthought. I’m not saying I’m not interested in it since I am. … Continue reading The Draft…It is Here!
