NCAAF: Final Thoughts

August 28, 2010
By K. Becks

In my last college football preview post, I’ll give you my short list of Heisman Trophy candidates, as well as some other stories that I think will make headlines during this season. I was going to do my own rendition of a preseason Top 25, but those things are so off by the end...

NCAAF: Independents Preview

August 26, 2010
By K. Becks

Overview For the first time in quite awhile, there may be more than one independent team that could have a good season. Navy could be even better than the team that beat up Missouri in the Texas Bowl last season, and Notre Dame may finally be recovering from what was a rollercoaster ride to...

NCAAF: Pac-10 Preview

August 25, 2010
By K. Becks

Overview The Pac-10 would like to be considered as one of the best conferences in the nation with the likes of the SEC and the Big 10. Some years, it can be argued that the Pac-10 is as good as those other conferences, but it may be hard to make that argument this year....

NCAAF: WAC Preview

August 24, 2010
By K. Becks

Overview Next year, there will be almost no need to cover this conference, unless by some miracle Boise State opts out of their agreement to join the Mountain West Conference. Even then, it doesn’t matter much, because the only reason that will happen is if the college football landscape begins to shift again, and...

NCAAF: Mountain West Preview

August 22, 2010
By K. Becks

Overview You have to feel a little bad for the Mountain West. They came painfully close to receiving an automatic bid to a BCS game, and for more reasons than one, they probably won’t get it. In fact, in a few years, if the conference re-alignment plays out the way experts predict it will,...

NCAAF: Big 12 Preview

August 21, 2010
By K. Becks

Overview The Big 12 should be a very interesting conference to watch this year. They were the talk of the off-season, with Colorado and Nebraska going public with their intentions to bolt for the Pac-10 and Big 10 conferences next year, and that’s just the beginning. Multiple teams, including Nebraska, Texas, and Oklahoma, will...

NCAAF: Conference USA Preview

August 18, 2010
By K. Becks

Overview Conference USA is very similar to the MAC in many ways. Both conferences have talented but not elite players, and both conferences are a breeding ground for up-and-coming coaches. However, this (specifically for the 2010-2011 season) is what separates the conferences: Case Keenum. The Houston Cougars, a member of Conference USA, is on...

NCAAF: MAC Preview

August 17, 2010
By K. Becks

After what I would consider a far too long absence, I’m back with the college football previews. Just to keep you all updated, after the college football preview has concluded, I will go straight to my NFL picks, and I should finish that just in time to start covering the important rounds of the...

NCAAF: Sun Belt Preview

August 12, 2010
By K. Becks

Overview Unless you’re an alumnus or alumna of one of the schools in this conference, then you probably don’t care much about it. The teams don’t play on national TV often, they don’t have any national championship contenders, and half the school names make you say “is that really a college?” To answer your...

NCAAF: Big Ten Preview

August 11, 2010
By K. Becks

Tiger Woods is struggling, Johnny Cueto is kicking, and Darrelle Revis is still holding out. With all that is going on in the sport-o-sphere, I’m kind of sad that I’m not covering any of it. However, I’m excited to be close enough to the start of college football to be giving my predictions, and...
