If I was told that only one of my four picks for the Wildcard Weekend was going to be correct, I wouldn’t have guessed that my Baltimore over New England pick would be it. All in all, the games this weekend were pretty boring unless you’re a diehard fan of one of the teams...

By K. Becks

I had meant to post an entry yesterday to review the National Championship game and give a look back at some of my favorite games of the bowl season. However, due to the fact that the NFL Wildcard games start today, I’m going to have to put that on hold. As for the National...

If the only game featuring two “mid-major” football programs turns out being the best BCS game this year, then the questions about fairness...
