    Everything that could wrong for Michigan has gotten wrong including a turnover inside the Badger 5 yard line. Jonathan Taylor has been out for awhile but he still has 143 yards rushing. He took advantage of Michigan not setting the edge for a 70+ yard TD run. What an embarrassment for Michigan. It seems inconceivable Harbaugh could be on the hot seat but. .

    Navy football lost one of its legends Thursday when Joe Bellino died in his home state of Massachusetts at the age of 81. Bellino, the 1960 Heisman Trophy winner as a standout halfback for the Midshipmen, had been in failing health for some time. Bellino was nicknamed the “Winchester Rifle” – a reference to his hometown and high school as well as his explosive running style. He was described by one newspaper reporter as “the player who was never caught from behind.” He starred at Navy from 1958-1960 under head coach Wayne Hardin, rushing for 1,664 yards on 330 carries...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump welcomed the NCAA champion Clemson Tigers football team to the White House Monday with a shutdown smorgasbord of fast food offerings he called "great American food," including piles of pizza and fries and more than 300 burgers. “Because of the shutdown, as you know, we have the great Clemson team with us, so we went out and ordered American fast food paid for by me,” the president said in the East Room, standing behind a table loaded with offerings from McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King and Dominos served on silver platters, behind a gilded candelabra.

    Alabama football squares off against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on December 29. The Sooners prolific offense has smashed offensive records along the way. One overlooked position group is vital to their monumental success. The pure motivation for Alabama football to outwork yesterday is right in front of them. Start with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray hoisting the illustrious, bronze Heisman Trophy high above his head Saturday night. That is no minor, internal motivation. The Crimson Tide suffered losses in the previous three contests against the Sooners, including a 2014 Sugar Bowl shellacking at the hands of an unassuming Trevor Knight...

    Even in high school, Tua Tagovailoa had a special quality that coaches such as Lane Kiffin were drawn to. Tom Hauck for Student Sports It feels like an eternity looking back on it now, having rewatched it on replay and in slow motion and from multiple camera angles, but the reality is it took almost no time at all for Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa to pick himself up off the turf during overtime of the national title game, gather his thoughts and orchestrate the play that has come to be known simply as "Second-and-26." That moment in January, which delivered Alabama...

    College football rankings for week 11 have been released. Alabama remains the top-ranked team, while West Virginia, Syracuse, and Boston College made significant leaps in the polls. Washington, which clipped Stanford, 27-23, moved into the AP Poll at No. 20.

Boston College vaulted seven spots to No. 17 on the strength of a 31-21 victory at Virginia Tech. The Orange and Eagles both made 11-point leaps in the Coaches Poll. NC State, Iowa State, Michigan...

    Just over an hour after the governor of the state laid into the Maryland Board of Regents over their decision to recommend retaining head coach D.J. Durkin, the school has gone in a different direction and bowed to public pressure by firing the embattled coach on Wednesday. Multiple reports confirmed the news from College Park:

    The sum total of professional employees of the University of Maryland held accountable for the completely preventable death of football player Jordan McNair is now known. That total is one. Strength coach Rick Court, a proud troglodyte who frequently degraded players by calling them vile names, including antigay slurs, is the only employee known publicly to lose his job in this entire tragedy. And part of the process of getting rid of Court was giving him a $315,000 settlement to go along with his August resignation. The primary powers within the athletic department are back, per the school’s announcement Tuesday...

    Many are saying that this could be the best overall team that Nick Saban has ever assembled. That is not good news for opponents since Saban has assembled so many national championship teams. So looking at the current top ten, what are the chances they realistically have to pose a problem to the Tide? Let’s go in order of what this writer who has covered football for long thinks and we’ll start in order of the teams with the worst chance. Starting with number nine of the chart to topple the tide. 9. Michigan – Currently the number 6 team...

    The Big 12 may not have a bigger stage the rest of the regular season than it did on Saturday afternoon. The Red River Showdown actually resembled a Shootout, the old name before it got changed in the name of political correctness. It was quintessential Big 12 – 93 points, 1,033 yards and a breathtaking ending when Texas won, 48-45, on a field goal with nine seconds left. Texas pulling the upset of the No. 7 Sooners, however entertaining, may have been the worst result for the long-term playoff viability of the Big 12. The Big 12 team best positioned...

    ... Competing in the storied Southeastern Conference, Auburn University (located in Auburn, Alabama) has many great wins to its credit on the gridiron and, to a lesser extent, the basketball court. The rivalry with the University of Alabama is as intense as any in college sports. Winning is an obsession and a Chronicle of Higher Education article from February by Jack Stripling shows how it dominates the administration. (The article appears in the February 23 edition and is subscribers-only content, so I will quote from it at length.) Here’s how the story unfolded. In 2013, the university’s student data showed...

    As college football approaches, rivalries renew, summer fades and fall arrives. It would be hard to grow up in American and not be touched by some of the rivalries, traditions and humor that goes with the arrival of fall. So, I thought a thread celebrating some of the humor might help usher in the season and give us all a needed break from politics.
