    Brian, The B1G will prove you wrong again... a national writer shouldn't be so biased. Your knowledgeable enough to know that they will win some bowl games but you pick them to lose every bowl game in your predictions. That's pretty bad for a writer who is supposed to be writing an objective article for the nation. I think you will lose some followers in the near future... I know I'll skip over yours in the future.

    Brian, your comment at the end of your story on the Miss State/Southern Miss game, "This old rivalry has been renewed, and it will be dominated by the Bulldogs like it was in the past."

    While I don't disagree that MSU will probably dominate this game, if you had checked the series history you have learned that USM leads the alltime series 14-12 and won 12 of the last 16 games when the series ended. USM has stunk the last two year, but we have a proud football history prior to these last two years. We owned MSU when they stopped playing us.

    So the Boston College v. UMass game this Saturday is at Gillette, not exactly hosted by UMass as you said in your "Week 1 predictions" article. Seeing that UMass hosting BC is the main reason for picking UMass to win, might want to reconsider?

    Uhhh, yeah... Might want to have a picture of Oklahoma instead of Oklahoma State for the Easiest 2014 Schedule story that has the Sooners at #6. What do you think?

    The acronym for Texas State is TXST, not TSU. I know we're forgettable, but if you could edit for accuracy, it would be much appreciated. Thanks for the recognition!

    You should learn to follow many different CFB teams before writing ignorant articles that show how little you know.

    on your recent college football ranking article, on #7 UCLA, you put that ucla has tough home games against "Stanford and UCLA" when it should be "Stanford and Oregon" (i assume)

    TCU improves. Forget not Texas. New Coach Strong. Defense genius. And QB Swoopes Played less than 30 minutes under Brown. But his strong arm and power Running give them a Big 12 Title. Coach Strong know how to develop QBs.
    Keep up the good work.
