Big 10 expansion — why stop at 12?

Matt Barkley is a tool

OK OK, Pryor has made some ill-considered comments this week, but he is not alone. MOTSAG has these choice words from Matt Barkley: Among other things, Barkley was asked by a reporter on the field what he had learned about […]

Finally, football is here.

My picks this week (straight up): * South Carolina vs. NC State (Thursday). SC. I’m tempted towards NC State as SC always lets me down. * Oregon vs. Boise State (Thursday). Oregon. Hoping for a good game. * Navy vs. […]
