Alex Kielar | January 15th, 2020 

Now that we are done with Divisional Round weekend of the 2019 NFL season, the top 28 picks of this year’s draft are now locked down.

Raul Vazquez | January 9th, 2020 

Through all the success that Wisconsin has had at offensive line, Tyler Biadasz was the first center in Wisconsin’s history to win the Rimington Trophy that is awarded to the nation’s most outstanding center. The three-year starter at center announced yesterday that he will be entering the draft joining underclassmen Jonathan Taylor and Quintez Cephus. Much like Taylor, the decision does not come as much of a surprise but the decorated junior now makes it official.

2020 Citrus Bowl Preview & Prediction

Nick Popio | January 1st, 2020

Alabama and Michigan will meet up for the fifth time in series history as they collide in a mouth-watering Citrus Bowl matchup. The last time these two met the Tide clobbered the Wolverines 41-14 in 2012. The last bowl meeting was the 2000 Orange Bowl in Tom Brady‘s farewell game at Michigan. The maize and blue outlasted the Tide by one due to a missed extra point.

Entering the New Mexico Bowl, Central Michigan is looking for a big pick me up. The 8-5 Chippewas are coming off a tough 26-21 loss in the MAC title, to Miami-Ohio two weeks prior. Former Gator head coach Jim McElwain has done a bang job since being hired on at Central Michigan. It was only one year ago this Central Michigan club sported a dismal 1-11 record and missed its first bowl game since 2013. Along with winning the MAC West division title, McElwain would be rewarded with the MAC coach of the year.

We are just a few days away from week 16 of the 2019 NFL season.

Those fan bases are already looking ahead to the offseason and most notably the 2020 NFL draft. With a loss in one of their final two games, the Bengals will lock up the top draft spot and will be on the clock.

We’re heading into week 15 meaning there are only three weeks left in the regular season. For a handful of teams, this means trying to clinch a playoff spot or claw their way to try and earn the last wildcard spot.

The NCAA Has A Scheduling Problem

Tyler Forness | November 13, 2019

Every year when it comes to playoff rankings, we talk about the non-conference schedule. While we talk about it being important, we also ignore our own opinions on that when it comes to how we rank and perceive teams when it comes to the playoff rankings. Consistently, we have some teams that are willing to schedule tough opponents every year, some who are willing to but never as a true road team, and some who refuse. Until we fix the method of scheduling in college football, we are never going to solve this.
