Four years ago this coming December, Mike Gundy stood at a podium in an annual tradition answering questions about the incoming recruiting class he signed. He talked about Spencer Sanders signing his LOI first, about poachers trying to steal OSU recruits, about evaluating players. Interesting stuff and a fascinating window into his thoughts on a topic he rarely talks on, even if a lot of it was boilerplate head coach speak.
But buried beneath his comments was a man with a mullet predicting the future of college football and a reckoning it’s now facing regarding the 25-man scholarship limit per
As Nebraska enters the 2021 college football season, here is an idea of where fourth-year head coach Scott Frost and company stack up. Courtesy of DraftKings, the Huskers’ over/under win total is set at six.
Nebraska, which went 3-5 against a Big Ten-only schedule for the 2020 season, opens Aug. 28 at Illinois. The Huskers then play a non-conference schedule of Fordham (Sept. 4) and Buffalo (Sept. 11) at home before hitting the road Sept. 18 for a challenging matchup with Oklahoma. Conference play resumes Sept. 25 at Michigan State.
When the calendar flips to October,
Winning a national title in college football generally requires both greatness and a little bit of luck, and some of the greatest teams in the sport’s history haven’t gotten quite enough of the latter to emerge with a ring. As we slowly gear up for another season, let’s take a moment to admire some of those who fell just short. Here are the 50 best teams to not win a national title.
This being college football, of course, we need some specifications. Since approximately 14,038,342 teams have claimed national titles through the years, we’re going to define “national titles” as

The Arizona Wildcats recently finished their first spring camp under the new staff. However, recruiting never stops.
Jedd Fisch and company are still out on the trail making offers, setting up official visits, and getting players to join the program.

The tight end room in Tempe is adding another body. On Saturday, former Mississippi State tight end Geor’quarius Spivey announced he was committing to Arizona State on his Twitter.
In three seasons in Starkville, Spivey hauled in 14 career catches for 153 total yards. However, he had a standout performance late in the season in 2020. Spivey caught five balls for 97 yards.
Coming out of Louisiana in the 2017 class, he was rated a three-star by 247Sports. His 6-foot-5, 240-pound frame is certainly attractive for a coaching staff and allows him to get jump balls like he did in

One trend lately that I can’t stand is how many Ohio State regular season games are starting at noon. Over the past three seasons, at least half of Ohio State’s regular season games have started at noon. By comparison, from 2015-17, the Buckeyes had four games or less kickoff at noon in each of those three seasons.
The only people I am happy for when a noon start is announced is the media covering the game, since it will
Now that summer is approaching with a full head of steam, masks are out (if you’re vaccinated), and Badgers football recruiting visits are BACK!
This is always an exciting time of the year, as Wisconsin has traditionally done well with recruits they’ve gotten on campus for official visits. As it turns out, a beautiful June weekend in Madison can do wonders.
As we head towards Official Visit SZN, in case you don’t follow recruiting very closely, or if you’ve missed some of the recruiting coverage here at B5Q or other places, here’s a list of guys who could join the
Eleven teams have qualified for the 28 available semifinal spots — with Alabama (6), Clemson (6), Ohio State (4), Oklahoma (4) and Notre Dame (2) making multiple appearances. It’s the concern over a lack of variety among the playoff participants that’s caused the biggest pushback, particularly among fans.
