Mack Brown’s Rebuilding Process Continues With West Virginia Up Next

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Two years ago it appeared that the Texas Longhorns' long history of success had hit a bit of a road block. Even coach Mack Brown admits he didn't do his job very well and had to refocus heading into last season. It certainly wasn't all roses, but the team finished ...

Big XII Commissioner Dan Beebe: Mike Slive’s Proposals Were Nothing New

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Last week, SEC commissioner Mike Slive used his time at the podium during the league's media days to launch a new plan and path that he believes is critical for the future of college football. At least it seemed pretty new to me, and I thought to plenty of other ...

With Summer Rapidly Approaching, Time to Check in With the Some of the Game’s Best College Football Coaches

Friday, May 13th, 2011

It's not yet June, and outside of the mess happening in Columbus, there's not too many major stories happening around the college football landscape. But I know how many diehard NCAA pigskin fans there are out there, so any chance to hear from the head honchos at your favorite program ...

Oakland Coach Greg Kampe Believes Texas Provides a Favorable Matchup

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Since 1985, a No. 13 seed beats a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament an average of nearly once per year. Might that team this year be the Oakland Golden Grizzlies? At their frenetic pace, I'd at least give them an outside chance at springing the upset. Oakland, the Summit ...

Week 2 of the 2010 NFL season features some interesting matchups. Baltimore/Cincinnati; New England/New York Jets; New York Giants/Indianapolis come to mind. So does Pittsburgh at Tennessee.

Colt McCoy Makes Browns’ 53-Man Roster But Still Has Long Road Ahead

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

After an extraordinarily collegiate career filled with individual records and team success, Colt McCoy is finding the NFL to be inhospitable in comparison.

Mack Brown Wants Stricter Rules For Agents; Sees 16-Team Conferences Coming Soon

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Mack Brown is a "gets it" guy. He is a master politician, who says all the right things, yet never seems contrived. So when he opens up and lets some of his stronger feelings through - though still in a very congenial way - it's definitely of note. The Texas ...

Mack Brown Prefers Not Having a Conference Championship Game

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

Earlier this month, Dan Wetzel at Yahoo! wrote a fascinating feature on possible conference realignment where he hypothesized that Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany masterminded a plot to drain the funds from other schools like those in the Big 12 by convincing those teams to join the Big Ten in ...

Colt McCoy: “Coach Holmgren kind of compared me to Steve Young and Joe Montana.”

Monday, April 19th, 2010

There has been much debate lately as to whether Colt McCoy will be as successful in the NFL as he was in college.  Based upon wins, McCoy is college football’s all-time winningest quarterback and I can bet that he won’t be the NFL’s.  That is not taking a shot at ...
