Looking back, did they have to pick the most generic name possible for the new conference? I mean even Conference USA has a bit of a twist to it despite the fact its name is also quite generic (and that the conference isn’t that great these days). They should have just went all-in with being… Continue reading Time for predictions from Generic Conference #487…also known as The American conference
Seriously. This conference is the best of the Group of Five conferences. Not by a lot as the American conference still has some very good teams that haven’t been snatched up by Power Five conferences (yet). Then again, once Boise State gets a sniff of the Big XII or Pac-12 (which may still happen) all… Continue reading The Mountain West. A conference so good that BYU is trying to avoid it at all costs.
The MAC has certainly evolved over the past decade. The introduction of MACtion has been huge. Yes for us Canadians, unless you have one of the college football specialty packs, you’re shit out of luck to watch these weekday night games in November. But man, for those that can watch them, it is great knowing… Continue reading MACtion. If it wasn’t for that one word what would the MAC become?

Teams should be lined up to join. Now to be honest, there are rumblings that the Sun Belt is… Continue reading Welcome to the Sun Belt a.k.a. the Super-SoCon! Where dreams of conference championships and bowl games come true!
I was going to call it the Daily Dump but it is not daily at all and that has been used by so many different people on so many different websites. Don’t want to be called a copycat. Because if I am being called that, I am doing a poor job at copying whatever I… Continue reading Miscellaneous Things and Crap and Garbage and Stuff
It’s still somewhat special to see college football on ABC, especially for people without the specialty pack. For me, it’s special only some of the time as ESPN seems to be hell-bent on putting at least a few of the bigger games on their network and not on ABC. And with Big Game Brent not… Continue reading Despite the fact it now stars Rece Davis’s doppleganger, ABC College Football is still a big deal (most of the time)
