College Football

Penn St. Quarterbacks Train by Using Madden on PlayStation

Just this weekend I was having a discussion on football players using Madden. I said that some players use it to practice reads and learn plays. Come to find out, that is certainly the case — at least in Happy Valley. From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, via Buffalo Bill Ben Maller: The idea is to give…Read More

Pete Carroll Learns From … Tennis?

You figure the head coach of one the most successful college football programs in the country probably spends his practices imparting the wisdom of his predecessors. You would think he’d be barking out coaching methods from Tom Landry and Bear Bryant on the practice field, and sharing the secrets of Vince Lombardi’s success in the…Read More

Michigan Players Already Showing Confidence in Chad Henne

The guys about to be a fourth year starting quarterback for one of the most elite programs in all of college football. Three straight season of at least 20 touchdowns. Three straight seasons of at least 2,500 yards. A 29-10 record at the helm. And how do his Wolverine teammates indicate their faith in him?…Read More

Pac-10 of Course, Most Underrated

Why not? Choice of the collegiate champion, right? It’s cheap, it’s easy, it’s perfect. And frankly, Jimmy is just getting a raw deal.

It also…Read More

Michigan Football Players Have Zipper Issues

Giving Florida football a run for their money, a couple of Michigan football players had pretrial hearings this week. Sophomore LB Obi Ezeh plead not guilty to drunk driving charges. As for his teammate, junior WR LaTerryal Savoy, well he pleaded guilty to a charge of indecent exposure. But it’s his defense that’s the real…Read More

Frank Beamer Thinks He Was Spied On

Not while he was getting his dirty-dirty on or anything like that, but something much more serious. Eight months after the Chick-Fil-A Bowl (man, they make one hell of a chicken sandwich by the way), the Sultan of Special Teams suspects there was some foul play going on with the Georgia coaching staff. “We practiced…Read More

Miami Football Has ‘Butt Buddies’

Preface: I love Miami Hurricanes football, and likewise, I’m quite happy with all the changes Coach Shannon has brought to the team. And after speaking to Coach over the weekend and finding out what a good guy he is, I have no reason other than to give him the benefit of the doubt with this…Read More
