Early look at Houston Cougars 2014 Schedule

The Houston Cougars finished last season 8-5, and ended the season on a sour note with a loss to the Vanderbilt Commodores in the BBVA Compass bowl. While finishing with a respectable record and bowl game was a good thing for Houston, Head Coach Tony Levine hopes to build on that success last season and have a better record this season. But the American Conference looks to be tougher this season and that could hinder the Cougars season.

WSU Quarterback Connor Halliday Was Really Good on 4th Downs in 2013

Washington State football fans were often infuriated by the erratic play of quarterback Connor Holliday during the 2013 season — which saw the Cougs go to their first bowl game in 10 years.  The fans seemed to complain about how his interceptions killed any momentum that the Cougar offense earned, especially in the red zone ones — five of his 22 interceptions came from inside the 20 yard line. But, what most WSU fans often don’t realize is that Halliday was amazaballs during the last five games of the season(including the bowl game), and that he was excellent during fourth down situations.

How good you ask? Well let’s take a look at his stat line:

Early Look at Texas Tech 2014 schedule

The Texas Tech Red Raiders are coming off a surprising run under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury last season. But this year they will be looking to build on what they did last season and improve. Most people didn’t have them making a bowl game last year and they made the Holiday Bowl.

Early look at Baylor 2014 schedule

The Baylor Bears are coming off one of their most successful seasons in school history, they are the defending Big XII champions, and they played in their first BCS bowl. Needless to say expectations will be very high in 2014 from a fan base who is learning what it is like to have a winning program. But I think the bigger expectations will be from head coach Art Briles because this team looks to have reloaded and wants to prove last year was not a fluke.

Early Look at Texas A&M 2014 schedule

The Texas A&M Aggies will go into the 2014 season with high hopes and high expectations after two full seasons in the Southeastern Conference and some success. But the Aggies are going to have to take on this coming season without, probably the best and most polarizing player to ever wear a Texas A&M uniform.

Early Look at Texas Longhorns 2014 Schedule

The Texas Longhorns are going into 2014 with some big changes and a new coaching staff. But one thing remains consistent on the 40 Acres, there will be big expectations and a demand to win often and early from the fan base. While the Longhorns said goodbye to Mack Brown at the end of last season, it was a change which needed to be made and there is still the expectation to win because the team had not fallen into the gutter.

Five Questions Raised By the Unionization of Northwestern Football Players

When the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled that the football players at Northwestern University could unionize left everyone stunned. Not many people expected that the college athletes would qualify under the legal definition of “employee”, and therefore wouldn’t have the right to unionize. Apparently, the NLRB felt differently.

The NCAA issued a laughable statement when it was announced that the players were looking at unionizing back in January; while Northwestern issued a very supportive one.  It’ll be interesting to see what the NCAA has to say now that the NLRB has agreed with the student athletes….and not the billion dollar “amateur” sports commission.

There are many questions that have been asked as a result of this unionization, and we will take a look at five of the more prevalent ones…from least prevalent to most: Continue Reading->
