Givanni Damico | May 3rd, 2020

Hey guys, so I decided to start my own football podcast called the “Leading the Charge Podcast.” I am a Buffalo Bills fan so a lot of what I talk about will be about the Bills, but I am also planning on discussing the league as a whole while sprinkling in some of my scouting knowledge!

Interview with Amik Robertson

Givanni Damico | May 2nd, 2020

Alright, ladies and gentlemen, I was able to get Amik Robertson, the new Las Vegas Raiders’ cornerback, and Louisiana Tech alumni, on the phone for an interview. In his three years as a starter at Louisiana Tech, Robertson recorded 183 tackles, 14 interceptions, and four sacks, while also finding the end zone three times. It was a pleasure to be able to interview Amik and I appreciate him taking time out of his day to do so. This is how it all went down. Continue reading

Gio’s 2020 NFL Draft “My Guys” Team

Givanni Damico | April 20th, 2020

Welcome to my annual article where I pick my favorite players at each position and people hate on me for having an opinion. These aren’t my highest-graded players at each position, rather guys that I’m very high on. This will not be a full team of 22. I’ll have seven guys on offense and ten on defense. Let’s get into it.

Connor Neal | April 17th, 2020

Alex Highsmith is a Charlotte 49ers pass rusher, who during his four-year career accounted for 185 total tackles, 47 for a loss, and 21 sacks. Without a doubt, Highsmith my favorite prospect in this draft class.

Alex’s 2020 Mock Draft 1.0

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. The order of the back four I am going based on how I think the conference championships and Super Bowl will go down. Those 28 teams are now looking towards the offseason and the 2020 draft as the remaining four get set for the Conference Championship round of the playoffs on Sunday.

Wisconsin Center Tyler Biadasz Declares for the 2020 Draft

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.

Holiday Bowl Breakdown

Dale Money   | December 27th, 2019 

It was 2003 in the Orange Bowl, the last time Iowa and USC faced one another. In which Carson Palmer would lead the Trojans past Brandon Banks and the Hawkeyes in a decisive 38-17 win. Kirk Ferentz was the head coach for Iowa in that game and continues to be a mainstay with the team. Continue reading

Central Michigan Meets up With San Diego State in the New Mexico Bowl

Dale Money | December 20th, 2019

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.

Mike’s 2020 Mock Draft 1.0

Mike Fanelli | December 19th, 2019 

We are just a few days away from week 16 of the 2019 NFL season. That means there are only two weeks of regular season football left and the majority of teams have been eliminated from playoff contention. 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.

They come into this game not only looking to correct their failures of last year but also greatly improve their current Bowl chances.

How Tua’s Injury Impacts the NFL

Mason Thompson | November 18th, 2019

Alabama’s star quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa went down with an injury up 28 points against Mississippi State on Saturday. He already was dinged up heading into the game with an ankle injury and was a game-time decision. Well, he won’t be playing any games for the remainder of the year. Tagovailoa was carted off the field with what was later to be determined as a dislocated hip.

Tua Tagovailoa Suffers Season-Ending Injury

Dr. Beth Sullivan      | November 17th, 2019 

With Alabama up 35-7 and just over three minutes to go in the first half, Alabama starting quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa suffered a season-ending hip injury and a contusion to his nose which caused a profuse nose bleed. Tua suffered a posterior hip dislocation with an acetabular rim fracture and was flown by helicopter back to Alabama for further evaluation. A lot of comments regarding this injury have already been made, and I hope this piece will help to explain the injury and the recovery facing Tua. Continue reading

Gio’s NFL Mock Draft 2.0

Givanni Damico | November 15th, 2019

Welcome to my first mock draft since April! Click here for my first mock draft. A lot, and I mean a lot has changed since May. Some people have completely fallen out of favor and are no longer in my top 100.

There are plenty of teams who have way too many needs to cover in one round, so I apologize in advance for the people asking “Why didn’t you give my team (insert player that won’t fall to said team here).” The draft order that I used in May has changed drastically, but some teams are still around the same pick.

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.

Big Ten West Coming Down To Final Four Games

Raul Vazquez | November 8th, 2019 

Most of the college football world penciled in a Badgers loss to Ohio State before the season and even after Wisconsin got off to a hot start, but no one could have predicted the meltdown in Champaign. Now with two losses, the Badgers will need some help from Big Ten opponents to knock off long-time rivals Iowa and Minnesota to win the Big Ten West.

Damico’s Depository + Week 10 CFB Game Picks

Givanni Damico | November 2nd, 2019

I had an absolutely atrocious week last week. We’ll leave it at that since not many people saw my picks last week. I’m going to attempt to recover by giving you nine “locks” this week. Just a reminder, I am not a professional better and you shouldn’t bet your life savings on my picks. Anything can happen in football as we saw last week as most of my locks ended up not covering. If I can call myself out for doing well, I have to be able to admit when I was just wrong.

Damico’s Depository: Ten College Football Locks For Week Six

Givanni Damico | October 4th, 2019

This week, I’m going to introduce a new “segment”, if you will, to this article. This is inspired by “Bear’s Bank” on College Gameday. The Bear has such a poor picking record at picking spreads that I decided I must take it into my own hands to challenge him. So obviously, he’s a few weeks ahead of me, so this week I will pick 10 of my locks for this week and see if I can eventually have a better record than Chris Fallica and claim my throne. To make sure the article isn’t too long, I will do separate articles for my locks and my game picks.

More Money, More Problems.

Gabe Botero | September 24th, 2019 

I took a casual poll on whether or not college athletes should be paid or compensated when their respective university uses their image or likeness. The results were not as I expected. Out of about 100 people who responded, 72 of them said that college athletes should not be paid. This sample included people who had played and who were passionate about college athletics, people who were recently out of college and people who have been graduated for a long time. I personally voted that they should be compensated for their image being used for marketing or recruiting and in a way, they are with scholarships. But we all know that scholarships can only help so much. Continue reading
