  • Alabama and Texas A&M are the SEC West’s best teams
    If it hasn’t been apparent to you during the first four weeks of the season, it should be pretty obvious by now: the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Texas A&M Aggies are the SEC West’s best teams. Never mind the simple fact that they’re both undefeated at 4-0. That fact will inevitably change, as the two play each other on October 22, and one of them has to lose. However, through the first four weeks of the season, no team in ... read more

  • Can the Cleveland Browns win out? Terrelle Pryor thinks so
    The Cleveland Browns are one of four teams who are off to the dreaded 0-3 start. Losing the first three games of the season usually results in a disappointing season. The Browns are very familiar with disappointing seasons. Since the return to the NFL in 1999, Cleveland has just two winning seasons. When the organization decided to take a new approach toward building a football team, nobody felt the Browns would win many games in 2016. The Browns could join ... read more

  • Le’Veon Bell’s return comes just in time for Pittsburgh Steelers
    Sunday night will mark running back Le’Veon Bell’s return to a beleaguered Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense.   The former All-Pro back was suspended for the first three games of the season due to missed drug tests.  Bell’s return couldn’t come at a better time, with the Steelers coming off of a horrendous 34-3 loss at the hands (or wings) of the Philadelphia Eagles.  To put it nicely, the Steelers’ offense was pitiful last Sunday, failing to run or pass the ball with ... read more

  • Two Indiana Hoosiers runningbacks ready to take NFL by storm

While there have been many solid Indiana Hoosiers in the NFL, none have really burst onto the scene. Trent Green was a solid, if underwhelming, quarterback. Antwaan Randle El was never a star, but he had a long stay in the league and performed admirably. Tracy Porter was the hero of Super Bowl 44 for the New Orleans ... read more

  • Redemption mindset for Houston against UConn
    For the second straight year, the University of Houston enters the game against the University of Connecticut undefeated. Last year it was a 20-17 loss for Houston that was their only blemish in an otherwise perfect season. A Greg Ward-less offense only racked up 318 yards (208 passing) and four turnovers. The loss temporally knocked the Cougars out of the top 25 and crashed their undefeated season. Now with Ward ready to go and playoff possibilities on the line, head ... read more
