College Football Week 4 Recap

Let's first see how my Week 4 Bold Predictions turned out: 1. Texas Tech outguns TCU in Lubbock This game came down to the wire, as I thought it might, but TCU survived by way of a crazy 4th-and-goal tipped pass with 23 seconds left on the clock.  Perhaps even crazier was Te...

Play By Play With McMillan

So, there's been a lot of talk about McMillan's play at the middle linebacker position- that he didn't do particularly well against Western Michigan.  The problem, of course, is that most of these observations aren't really backed by any systemic analysis of the film.  That means we're not...

College Football Week 4 Bold Predictions
