Now." Problem was, every time I looked at my iPad, Jared Goff was making a terrific throw, leading Cal down the stretch of a crazy, entertaining game against Colorado. I was in Salt Lake City, and the Washington State-Utah game ...

Posted by Reid Akins on September 30 2014 Add Comments
The Tennessee Volunteers turned in an impressive performance in Athens against the No. 13 Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday, and it's clear that the team is rapidly improving with each game. That progress will need to continue if head coach Butch Jones wants his team to escape the month of October with a 2-2 or better record. Last year's contest against Georgia in Knoxville was close, but the Bulldogs were significantly banged up and missing several key ...

Tennessee is going to beat Florida on Saturday. Finally. The last time that actually happened—not just boasted about by optimistic Volunteers fans—was in 2004. That season, UT kicker James Wilhoit booted a 50-yard field goal to beat UF 30-28 in Neyland Stadium after missing an extra point. To put into perspective how long it's been, that was three years before the first iPhone hit the shelves. Facebook had been online for seven months. George W. Bush had not ...

What’s Wrong with Florida State’s Defense?

ATHENS, GA. — You may have noticed that Florida State looks vulnerable on defense. You may have also noticed that the Seminoles switched bald-headed guys as defensive coordinators before this season. Charles Kelly replaced Jeremy Pruitt, who is a Nick Saban guy, which might explain why Pruitt doesn't have any hair left.     The first four games of this season would explain why Kelly doesn't have any hair left. Pulled it all out watching a ...
