Toronto, you're going to be accused of unrealistic AI if you keep this up.

First you make a ridiculous trade with Miami that most video gamers would've scorned for it's unrealistic lack of balance. Coming to the Blue Jays? Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio, and John Buck along with $4 million.

Leaving? Yunel Escobar, Jeff Mathis, Henderson Alvarez, and prospects Jake Marisnick, ... Read More

Many Minor Bowls are simply played in front of half empty stadiums with little if any fan enthusiasm.

The four team playoff is coming sooner rather than later, for the 2014 Football Season. But let's face it, the Playoffs will have to expand sometime in the future, and I think the easiest path and most inclusive path forward will be via a six team bracket with the top five conference champs and a single at-large team ...

Conference championship weekend is here, where did the season go exactly?

I'm not sure either, but NCAA Football has a thing or two to say about how things are going to fare this weekend. The first thing that can be said is a simple, "Where are the big matchups?"

For all the hype they get, conference title games are largely huge flops. Florida State vs. Georgia Tech? Nebraska vs. Wisconsin? ... Read More

The name of the game is simple: each Friday I run down the top college football games and give my quick hitting picks. There's not much more to say except: LETS GET TO PICKING!

Game of the Week: Clemson at Florida State

This is an interesting game. Don't count out Clemson, but Florida State is back...until they get randomly upset by some rum-dum run of the mill average ACC team. Perhaps they won't. ... Read More

There's just so much to this story, and the whole definition of college athletes and what it means to be one and what rights you have just gets more and more interesting.

This all stems from the Sam Keller/Ed O'Bannon case which was filed against EA and the NCAA for allegedly profiting off of student athlete likenesses. I have been writing about this story for over two years now, and we're just now getting to ... Read More

Four powerhouse programs have found themselves at 3-0 to start the season. A quarter of the way to an undefeated season is no small feat for sure, but which teams over the next three months will be contending and which teams will be exposed as having been pretending come early December?

It seemed anticlimatic...but the former number two team in the nation the USC Trojans went down this weekend to an old foe that has had their number in Stanford. But that's not the only action of the weekend, here are seven things we've learned from Week Three:

1. The National Championship Runs Through the SEC - This is not a surprise, but for right now in Week 3, we know the National Championship contender ... Read More

The Pac-12 has been owned by Oregon the past two years with USC out of the picture for the post-season. Now, with scholarship reductions taking effect, USC has one more season of pretty normal activity before they have to manage life without a full slate of scholarship players.

Silas Redd's addition onto the USC roster will be a huge boost, but it wasn't as if the Trojans weren't already the favorite anyways. ... Read More

And then there were ten…again.

The Big XII has been at the center of way too much college football realignment discussion the past three summers, but it appears the league is back on solid footing after very possibly upgrading their football stature by bringing in West Virginia and TCU after losing Texas A&M and MIssouri.

The league this season will be trying to get used to the newcomers, ... Read More

The penalties at Penn State are indeed massive. We're going to do some math and play with it all to see how bad it could be.

People have been quick to point to USC and say, "the penalties at Penn State aren't all that bad, see? Look at USC!"

But the simple fact is, USC's scholarship reductions just kicked in this past recruiting season. In two years, USC will be incredibly thin at every position ... Read More

Every year, there are at least a few great non-conference matchups worth watching amidst a slew of Georgia Southern vs. SEC Power #3 games. Without further adieu, here's my top 5 non-conference games to watch in 2012:

#6 - Washington at LSU, Sept. 8

LSU is going to be really, really good this year. Washington will be bringing a rather green team into Death Valley with just 11 starters returning ... Read More

You've just played 60 minutes of hard nosed-tough football and yet you and your opponent have decided nothing.

The game is tied.

And now, it's time for overtime so it's time to switch sports because you are no longer playing football.

For some reason, no one has a clue about how to actually solve a football game that finds itself tied after regulation ends. Every other sport? They're ... Read More
