Week 3 CFB Throwdown

By: Keith Hall on September 17, 2015

It’s finally here! No, I’m not talking about NFL, or the end of MLB, or NBA pre-season.  I’m talking about the end of non-conference season in College Football!  I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of seeing McNeese State playing Ohio State.  I’m ready for competetive football!  Then again, I might still pumped up from my Sooners beating Tennessee in double overtime last week.  I might be biased, but that easily one of the best games of the year so far.  Starting next week we get into the conference season which is what makes CFB so great!  This week… Read More »

CFB Thursday Throwdown: Week 2

By: Keith Hall on September 10, 2015

There aren’t a lot of things that we can count on in DFS.  Specially when it comes to building CFB lineups.  We are banking on 18-21 year old kids to perform to the level that we have heard they are capable of.  Last week had us looking at a game that was cancelled, multiple games that were delayed due to weather, and one that was eventually cancelled late in the game.  Luckily, we know that this isn’t something that we will be dealing with every week, and if you were hurt by any of these, then all you can do… Read More »

NCAA Thursday Throwdown

By: Keith Hall on September 3, 2015

It’s here! Opening week of the CFB season! That means food, beer, football, and of course, DFS sweats! With that comes a new set of articles every Thursday that will outline the main slate for Saturday’s games.  For today though, since we have nine games tonight, I will be looking at some of the key players that I believe will make an impact.  There are a lot of unknowns in the first week because we don’t know exactly what these teams plan to do. William Stanback-RB (UCF) Last year, Stanback had 10 rushing touchdowns in limited work.  He will get… Read More »

College Football Kickoff

By: Keith Hall on September 2, 2015

With the turning of the calendar from August to September, the DFS landscape begins to change.  September 1st gives MLB rosters the oppurtunity to expand and we see an influx of players getting a chance to prove to clubs they deserve to be in the big leagues.  It becomes very difficult to grind out MLB when we have so many players getting chances that we haven’t seen for a good portion of the year.  It becomes even more difficult when you are just two weeks away from NFL starting. For most of us, football consumes our weekends from September through… Read More »

Why Penn State Deserved NCAA Sanctions

By: Bryan Povlinski on July 25, 2012

Since NCAA President Mark Emmert announced the unprecedented sanctions against Penn State the national sports media have produced a countless number of articles on the subject. That probably means another article is not needed, but I wanted to explain why the defense of Penn State and the criticism of the NCAA is completely unwarranted. There are several overarching themes to most of the articles written about Penn State. I would say that 99% of articles written fell into one of the following categories: 1. The NCAA overstepped its boundaries by punishing Penn State. The crimes Sandusky committed had nothing to… Read More »
