College Football 2014 – Ranking The Conferences

Count down to College Football…….

2014 College FootballAs we are getting closer and closer to the best day of the year in all of sports, August 28, when the 2014 college football season kicks off in Columbia, South Carolina, I started thinking about the power conferences and how they stack up against each other. It’s easy to just rank the conferences, so I ranked the divisions as well as the conferences into one TOP 10 ranking. The SEC has ruled college football for the last, I don’t know, 7 to 30 years and there won’t be any change in that domination anytime soon. Oh sure, the PAC 12 has some formidable teams, the BIG 10 hopes to regain their past glory, the BIG 12 dreams of past Wishbone run dominating teams, and the ACC ( the Little Brother of the SEC ) thinks that 1 BCS National Championship will vault them past the SEC. Just one look at this years Top 10 ( depending on which publication you read ) and you will see 3 or 4 teams from the SEC in there. As everyone knows, getting through their brutal schedule as they beat each other up week after week, is tougher than winning the National Championship. Just look at Saban, I think he has won more National Championships than he has SEC titles! So, with all that said, let’s get to my TOP 10 rankings!

College Football – 2014. Ranking The Top Coaches

College Football A - ZSo, you have been named AD at your favorite university and your first priority is selecting a new head football coach.

If you could pick any coach out there, who would it be? There are so many excellent coaches in today’s game to choose from, the selection process is tough. Are you looking for the seasoned, proven HC? Do you want the “hot” up and coming coordinator? Someone with a defensive background? An offensive guru? There are a lot of factors that go in to making the best selection for your school especially now that coaches salaries have climbed up to the $5,000,000 per year level. If A To Z were picking a new HC, below are my top candidates:
Nick Saban Alabama1.  Nick SabanAlabama. How can Nick not be #1? National Championships. A plethora of  All-American’s. Top recruiting classes year after year. Nick’s overall coaching record is 170-57-1 with stops at Toledo ( 9-2 ), Michigan St. ( 34-24-1 ), LSU ( 48-16 ), and Alabama ( 79-15 ). Could you imagine how many BCS National Championships he could have won had he stayed at LSU?? Not taking anything away from ‘Bama, but he would have owned recruiting in Louisiana and the Southeast. Louisiana is a hotbed for recruiting and Nick would have closed the door on the state to any outsiders! Hmmm……

Steve Spurrier2.  Steve SpurrierSouth Carolina. I don’t care that he is 70 years old now. I don’t care that he failed in Washington. He is the greatest interview in the game as well as being one of the greatest college football coaches in history. His overall coaching record is now 219-72-2 with stops at Duke ( 20-13-1 ), Florida ( 122-27-1 ) and South Carolina ( 77-39 ). USC is gunning for their 4th straight 11+ wins seasons in a row. Are you kidding me? A mediocre program at best ( with an awesome fan base ) prior to Mr. Superior arriving there, the Gamecocks are a force annually in the tough SEC East and growing nationally. Just ask Clem-And-Son about what Spurrier has done at South Carolina.

Chris Peterson Washington3.  Chris PetersenWashington. We are very anxious to see what he will do outside of Boise State. I have said for years now that he is a premier coach and should have gotten out of Boise years ago. He built a powerhouse on the Blue Turf and many of the Big Boys were scared to play them ( just ask Big Game Bob ). What could he have done at LSU? Chris is an offensive genius and with all that talent in the Southeast, Mr. Saban may have been in trouble! In his 9 years at Boise, Petersen compiled a staggering 92-13 record. Let’s see how that translates in the now very tough PAC-12. I have a feeling it won’t take long for the Huskies to become a power!

Safari Kendall Jones

A Texas Tech cheerleader who has infuriated many in the online community after posting photos of wildlife she killed,  says she’s received DEATH THREATS over her penchant for hunting exotic animals.

Kendall Jones, a 19-year-old who has proudly shared snaps on her social media accounts of her posing with dead exotic animals in Africa claims she has received numerous threats by phone and email.

Kendall Jones THREATS over her penchant for hunting exotic animals Jones, who is gunning for a reality show, went on her first big game hunt to Africa when she was 9.  She calls the photos a testament to her hunting skills and dedication to game preservation.claims her hunting is actually a conservation effort.

One alleged threat which was posted on Instagram  was from model, animal rights activist and  “Real Housewives of Miami” star Joanna Krupa.

Krupa, 35,  wrote: ‘This b**** Kendall Jones killed this beautiful creature so she post a selfie! That lion is an endangered species… breaks  Texas Tech cheerleader who has infuriated many in the online community after posting photos of wildlifemy f***ing [heart] not to mention he had a family… I wish I can fly to Africa and shoot her ugly ass.’

NOTE:  We chose not to post Jones’  disturbing photos on our front page..see them here

The message has since been removed and thus far, Krupa has not commented on the claims.

Stop Melissa Bachman Petition

Facebook, who claims the photos are in violated their standards has now deleted Jones’ trophy photos showing the rhinos, elephants, lions and leopards that she has killed or tranquilized in Africa.

In a statement, it said it removes ‘reported content that promotes poaching of endangered species, the sale of animals for organized fight or content that includes extreme acts of animal abuse’.

College Football: 60 Days To 2001!!!

College FootballFinally, the countdown can begin! It’s officially 60 days until Steve Superior and the South Carolina Gamecocks host the Johnny Manziel less Texas A&M Aggies at the rocking Williams Brice Stadium in Columbia, South Carolina!

It will be an electric atmosphere with “Cocky” getting the Gamecock faithful jacked up and 2001 blaring – the greatest opening in all of college football. ESPN will be there, a national audience will be watching, and the greatest game in the land will start another season. And what a season it shapes up to be! Many of the Talking Heads have penciled in Oklahoma as the pre-season #1. Some have FSU repeating while many others see the Tide in the top spot. And then there is Auburn, loaded and ready for year 2 under Gus Malzahn. What about the high flying Ducks out west? Baylor should be right behind Oregon averaging 52 points per game!

This truly could be one of the most unpredictable years in recent memory. Our national champion could have ( and probably will have ) 2 losses. The only certainty this year is that it will be decided on the field of play, not by a biased vote or some computer ranking. Even though only 4 teams get to be in the playoff, that is a starting point for an eventual 8-12 team playoff structure.

Scheduling is the biggest factor in having a chance to win a national championship. The reason why I say this years champion may have 2 losses is so many of the top programs have tough schedules this year. In years past, a soft Ohio State like schedule got you in prime position to hang around the top of the polls week after week. Win and hope someone at the top losses. Keep winning with some style points along the way and you can back door your way to the title game. Not in 2014! Let’s look at some of the top programs and their schedules for 2014.
