The college football season has reached its midpoint and, as always, there have been some pleasant surprises and shocking disappointments. Here are some mid-season superlatives. Best team – Alabama Still. The Crimson Tide have produced 11 non-offensive touchdowns. True freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts has been dynamic from the series he went under center. Well, okay, […]

@PJJWatt, the Sam Houston State Version of J.J. Watt?

His twitter handle is @PJJWatt, but I’m not completely sure if it’s because Sam Houston State Bearkats defensive end P.J. Hall loves him some J.J. Watt or because he’s the FCS version of J.J. Watt.

This Week, 12th Time is the Charm

It’s called having someone’s number or in the case of the Tennessee Volunteers and the Florida Gators, it’s having a team’s number.

As Expansion Talks Loom, Cougars Main Goal is Winning Now IRVING – The scene likely unfolded something like this: in meeting rooms at a Key Biscayne, Fla., resort last week, presidents and athletic directors from a handful of schools kept ears on business involving the American Athletic Conference and both eyes glued to cellphones for any morsel of news regarding Big 12 expansion.

Sooners Talk About Facing Cougars September 1

Earlier this week, I was up in Dallas for Big 12 Media days. It was a fast-paced, whirlwind of a day as the Oklahoma Sooners, Texas Longhorns, Kansas Jayhawks, West Virginia Mountaineers and Baylor Bears met with the assembled media on hand. Then, near the end of the proceedings on that Tuesday, it was announced […]
