A great era could unfold as Florida, Florida State, Miami have coaches passionate about their school

I know as a Florida fan that I’m not allowed to say this. I also will say that I would not have considered it when I was younger. But I am genuinely happy for the fan bases in the state of Florida. Each of the state’s “Big Three” college football programs is being led by

Michigan’s Jake Butt receives a ‘butt load’ of toilet paper from Charmin

Thursday night begins the start of the 2017 NFL Draft. For many players who will be picked, they can look forward to additional income opportunities from endorsements. But it’s hard to imagine former Michigan tight end Jake Butt would have much competition when it comes to at least one particular one brand. Charmin delivered a

David Pollack leaving the broadcasting booth for coaching?

What? David Pollack could be leaving the comfy confines of the ESPN broadcasting booth? To coach? Don’t take my word for it. Pollack tweeted his plans on Tuesday afternoon. How'd you know that? Haha. It might happen but in 4-6 years. Coaching is in the plans for me. https://t.co/RY8uYkV6Gn — David Pollack (@davidpollack47) February 7,

Before he was Tim Tebow’s coach, Craig Howard was my coach

Throughout the nation, the story will be told that Tim Tebow’s high school coach, Craig Howard, passed away over the weekend. While that is true, Howard was so much more than that to thousands of lesser-known players in his time as a coach in north Florida. Including myself. Long before Howard was Tebow’s coach at Ponte

Lane Kiffin has no chill, continues trolling Auburn on Twitter

My resolution for 2017 was to be more versed in young people slang. I believe this what the kids are calling “throwing shade.” If my terminology is correct, I believe this is exactly what new Florida Atlantic Lane Kiffin was slinging at Auburn in his latest tweet. #missuguys pic.twitter.com/JarQEZ4J1N — Lane Kiffin (@Lane_Kiffin) January 18,

Lane Kiffin has no chill, continues trolling Auburn on Twitter

Lane Kiffin only has been gone from Alabama for a few weeks, but he already misses his old team. Or better yet, it looks like he might miss the Crimson Tide’s rival most of all. Kiffin, the Crimson Tide’s former offensive coordinator, posted a photo Wednesday on Twitter of an Auburn jet with a message

Will Clemson Tigers be next team to end long championship drought?

The Clemson Tigers have not defeated the mighty Alabama Crimson Tide since 1905. Alabama’s win streak of 13 goes back all the way to 1909. Granted, the two schools are not annual rivals, but if graphics like these are supposed to be an indication of Monday night’s outcome, I would disregard the implications if I

‘Dabo’s Dance Party’? Fortunately, Dabo Swinney is a better coach than dancer

What’s more awkward: the Clemson defense’s inappropriate, if not illegal, use of hands or Dabo Swinney’s dancing skills? (“Dabo Swinney: Coach Can Dance!” – College Football Live – ESPN from Nick Aquilino on Vimeo.) I’m leaning toward predicting Clemson to win the College Football Playoff on Monday night. This would be Clemson’s second national championship

Another Clemson on-field ‘groping’ incident exposed, this one by Ben Boulware

I’m just going to say it: If Alabama wants to beat Clemson to win yet another national championship, Nick Saban and the boys may want to prepare for Clemson’s “good hands” team. Not since the 1979 movie Caligula has there been as much groping as was seen in Clemson’s rout of Ohio State in last
