Campus Cover 041: There’s So Much Blood

This week we lead off with picks, talk about the week seven that was, the playoff picture, and then a little game in honor of the NBA opener. The Campus Cover is the always off-topic, sometimes correct college football gambling podcast presented by Student Union Sports. Not only do we have your picks of the […]


SU25: Week 8

Blood week got us all messed up. Georgia, Penn State, West Virginia, and Washington all lost as top ten teams, as well as losses by Wisconsin, Miami, Penn State and more. Let’s take a look at how the SU staff ended up ranking everyone after the carnage that was week seven. Alabama Ohio State Clemson […]


Let’s Talk About App State

Hidden in Boone, North Carolina, there is a football team who may be the best team in their state. Yes, there are seven FBS programs in the state of North Carolina, including four ACC programs, and the little brother hidden in the mountains may be better than all of them. They are legitimately good. Not […]


SU25: Week 7

We’re halfway through the 2018 college football season and our rankings are starting to take tremendous form. More confidence in Michigan and Texas in actual rank, but not too much change in the teams in the top 25. LSU and Florida created a seismic shift with the Gators pulling off a thrilling upset in the […]


Campus Cover 040: Your Rankings Suck!

If polls are really just subjective interpretations.. why do we take them so seriously? How should the polls be figured? We take a look at this debate, the best teams ATS, and of course, our picks of the week. The Campus Cover is the always off-topic, sometimes correct college football gambling podcast presented by Student […]


SU25: Week 6

After five weeks of play, we’re getting closer and closer to the halfway mark of the season. Seems like every week there are a couple of teams who come out of no where to jump in the top 25, only to fall out due to a unexpected loss the next week. Rankings are reactionary, especially […]


Campus Cover 039: Transfer Talk

Kelly Bryant transfers from Clemson.. should Jalen Hurts do the same at Alabama? We discuss this, play a couple new games, and feed you a ton of correct picks. The Campus Cover is the always off-topic, sometimes correct college football gambling podcast presented by Student Union Sports. Not only do we have your picks of […]


SU25: Week 4

Alabama (11) Clemson (3) Georgia Ohio State Oklahoma Stanford LSU Washington Auburn West Virginia Notre Dame UCF Penn State Michigan Wisconsin Kentucky Miami (FL) Michigan State Duke Texas BYU Oregon Mississippi State Syracuse Boise State Others Receiving Votes: Oklahoma State (21), USF (21), NC State (19), Iowa (18), Texas Tech (11), Cal (10), North Texas […]


Campus Cover 037: We’re Baaaaack

We.. um… had some issues come up and are just now returning, but the Campus Cover makes its triumphant return just in time for week 3! In this episode we discuss early season overreactions, what we love through the first two weeks, give out picks for week 3, and, of course, pick some mascot battles. […]


#SU25: Week 3

Alabama (7) Clemson (4) Georgia Ohio State Auburn Oklahoma Wisconsin Stanford Washington West Virginia LSU Notre Dame Virginia Tech Mississippi State TCU UCF Penn State Boise State Oregon Michigan Arizona State Iowa Miami (FL) Oklahoma State Utah Others receiving votes: Boston College (15), USC (14), Ole Miss (13), Houston (13), Michigan State (9), Texas A&M […]


Student Union Top 25: Week 2

Nothing like a little overreaction after week one. This week we saw Michigan, Miami, and Florida State all take losses in primetime, causing Michigan and Miami to fall to 23 and 24, while having Florida State completely drop out of the rankings. On the flip side, Notre Dame has moved into the top ten and […]


Student Union Preseason Top 25 Poll

College football is back upon us. For weeks we have been previewing the 2018 season and how we think it will all shape up. This preview process concluded with 16 of our most talented writers voting on their top 25 teams for the season, similar to how the AP Poll is conducted. This will continue […]


Join SU’s ATS Pick ‘Em Pool

Do you think you’re among the best of the best? Do you want to test that against the best fans and writers for Student Union? Of course you do.  Welcome to our first annual Student Union Sports College Pick ‘Em pool. Each week, you will pick a handful of games against the spread to compete […]


AGI Model: Looking Back at 2017

If you’ve followed me over the past year, you know that my “AGI” model as I decided to name it has been my child. My goal with this was always to create a tool to predict college football games, especially against the spread, in order to forecast seasons and games every weekend. Not to toot […]


Student Union CFB Preview: SEC Poll

It only took us a little over five weeks, but we have finally reached the conclusion of our conference previews. If you have been paying attention for the past few weeks, thank you for reading! You have also probably noticed that the SEC was the last conference we covered and once again, had Alabama number […]


Student Union CFB Preview: Kentucky Wildcats

The good news is that Kentucky returns 15 starters from a team that went 7-6 last year. The bad news is that they lose their starting quarterback and don’t have a lot of experience at the position. Benny Snell will be the most important player for this team as the stud running back will be […]


Student Union CFB Preview: Vanderbilt

Kyle Shurmur returns for his 8th year under center in Nashville. Okay, not really, but it seems like it. I also bet that you couldn’t name another player on Vanderbilt unless you are a fan of the team or the SEC. After a 5-7 last year, the Commodores are likely in for another rough year […]


Campus Cover 036: College Football Teams as Beers with Sam Grus

Had this idea brewing.. (pun intended) for awhile now, but finally got the chance to do it. Cody Goggin and self-proclaimed beer connoisseur Sam Grus match your favorite college football teams with the most popular beers in America. This is up for debate so let us know what you think! @scgrus_6, @CodyGoggin, @pjguip1, @StudentUSports, @TheCampusCover […]


Student Union College Football Preview: Pac 12 Poll

The “big three” at the top of the Pac 12 North may be able to compete with those of any division in the country. Because of these teams being super tough, there being five new coaches in the conference, and a ton of talent turnover, the Pac 12 is a hard conference to predict in […]


Student Union CFB Preview: Washington

What Chris Petersen is building up in Seattle still isn’t getting enough attention nationally. In the past two seasons, Washington has made the College Football Playoff and then after retooling their entire secondary last year, still made a New Year’s Six game. While the results in both games were less than desirable, there is no […]


Preseason Props: Betting the Big Ten

At this time of the year, there’s not a lot of sports betting action to go around. But if you’re like me and gearing up for the college football season, I’m sure you’ve already taken a peek at all of the preseason props. I’ve assembled a conference by conference list of these props to give […]


Student Union CFB Preview: Arizona

After a strong season under Rich Rodriguez last year, Kevin Sumlin will come to Tuscon to try to keep the momentum going for the Wildcats. Sumlin will have a ton of weapons on the offense with the electric tandem of Khalil Tate and JJ Taylor returning. Tate burst onto the scene last year after the […]


Student Union CFB Preview: California

While Cal wasn’t anything special last year, second year head coach Justin Wilcox certainly has this team trending in the right direction. The division that they are in makes things tough, but as the Golden Bears showed with their upset of Washington State last year, with great coaching, anything is possible. Prestige Rating (If NCAA […]


Student Union CFB Preview: Big 12 Poll

The Big 12 certainly seems like the most wide open power five conference. Only half of the league returns their starting QBs, with most of those replacements being from last year’s top half. Most people in our poll, myself included, think 2017 Big 12 Champion Oklahoma will repeat. Others think that Will Grier can drag […]


Campus Cover 035: ACC Preview

Cody and PJ are back to talk ACC, including a possible Georgia Tech/Duke bet. Also talk about geography, PJ’s drunkeness, and Chinese food. Take a guess who we pick to win the conference.

Student Union CFB Preview: Iowa State

Iowa State came out of absolutely nowhere last year to upset Oklahoma in Norman and finish tied for 4th in the Big 12. I’m really not sure what to think about this team as most of the games they won last year were by double digits, showing their legitimacy, and they are one of the […]


Preseason Props: Betting the ACC

At this time of the year, there’s not a lot of sports betting action to go around. But if you’re like me and gearing up for the college football season, I’m sure you’ve already taken a peek at all of the preseason props. I’ve assembled a conference by conference list of these props to give […]


Student Union QB Lab: ACC

Hello and welcome to the first QB breakdown for the preseason of the 2018-2019 football season. In these articles, Cody Goggin and myself, Andy Jones, will be taking our top 3 QB’s from each Power 5 Conference (and possibly a Group of 5 article) and be breaking down some film, mechanics, and stats on each […]


Student Union CFB Preview: Big Ten Poll

A quick disclaimer to start this one… this poll was conducted before the recent news about Urban Meyer came out, so I’m sure they may have been a few changes, but even at that, Ohio State is once again the favorite to win the conference. Both Wisconsin and Michigan received first place votes, but Ohio […]


Campus Cover 034: Big Ten Preview

Cody and PJ return to talk about the Big Ten, the Urban Meyer situation, any why their Big Ten Championship pick might not be something you’d expect. Stanley picks: over on Iowa, Maryland, Penn State; under on Illinois. Register at betdsi.com with promo code COVER1 to get the deposit match offer. Follow us on twitter […]


Student Union CFB Preview: Michigan

As always, the Wolverines are drawing a ton of buzz this preseason. Some of it for good reason as 16 starters return to Ann Arbor, along with former Ole Miss standout and top recruit Shea Patterson transferring up north. The Big Ten East is going to be a bloodbath and the schedule will be brutal, […]


Urban Meyer and the Morality of College Football

By now, unless you are living under a rock, everyone should have heard about the very damning accusations against Urban Meyer and Ohio State. Obviously this is an issue, and will continue to be for Ohio State. This will be the fourth scandal at a major school in the last ten years.  While not on […]


Student Union CFB Preview: Nebraska

You’ve seen it in every single publication by now, but Scott Frost has returned to lead his beloved alma mater. After not being able to get over the hump with Pelini and being god awful with Mike Riley, the Huskers decided to name a former UNL legend and 2017 “National Championship” winning coach Scott Frost […]


Student Union ACC Preseason Poll

We’ve been building towards it all week with our team preview releases, but here are our ACC preseason rankings as voted on by 14 writers on the Student Union staff. Clemson (12) Miami (2) Florida State Virginia Tech NC State Boston College Georgia Tech Louisville Pittsburgh Wake Forest Duke Syracuse North Carolina Virginia Will these […]


Student Union CFB Preview: Boston College

Being in the ACC Atlantic with the likes of Clemson and Florida State, it’s likely that Boston College will never win a division title. However, in Steve Addazio’s 6th season in Chestnut Hill, this may be the best chance the Eagles have. No, I’m not saying that this team is going to challenge Clemson for […]


Campus Cover 033: Johnny Rambos

Cody and PJ return from the summer break along with guest Johnny Rambos of the Johnny Rambos podcast. They talk home run derby, NBA summer league, and it devolves from there.

Campus Cover 32: NBA draft special and other stuff

Welcome to the Campus Cover, a gambling (~kinda~) podcast that uses that as the main point to talk about everything in sports. Hosted by PJ Guippone and (@pjguip1) and Cody Goggin (@CodyGoggin), we talk about college sports and gambling because if you really think about it, nothing else actually matters. In this episode, we talk […]

Ogunbowale Hits Shot for the Ages; Irish Win National Championship

I don’t believe what I just saw! Arike Ogunbowale for Notre Dame became a legend this weekend as she nailed not one, but two crazy game-winners en route to a National Championship. The shot to win it Sunday is one of the most absurd game winners you will ever see, much less in a situation […]


Closing the Book on Loyola’s Cinderella Run

In one of the best Cinderella runs ever, the Loyola Chicago Ramblers took down everyone in their path to make it all the way to the Final Four in San Antonio. At the end of the first half, it looked as if Loyola was destined for the title game. A great first half gave the […]

Louisville Loses on a Choke Job For the Ages

Coming into Thursday’s senior night matchup against the #1 Virginia Cavaliers, the Louisville Cardinals were among Joe Lundardi’s last four in as a bubble team. This team knew that with a big game against the Hoos that they could likely secure their place in the field of 68. Louisville led for most of the first […]


BREAKING NEWS: Sean Miller’s 100K Wiretap Call Intercepted

My original plan tonight was to write a nice, long overview of the NCAA scandal that was farther unveiled early Friday morning with the release of financial records of ASM Sports, an agency used by many former college basketball players. That plan was scrapped as soon I saw the biggest news of the night just […]

Bass Pro ToC: Night 3 Recap

7th Place: Glendale (MO) vs. Christ the King (NY) Glendale and Christ the King got the day started quick. This game began up-tempo as could be, with multiple turnovers and six three pointers between the two teams in the first four minutes. The pace continued throughout the first half until Christ the King started to […]


Bass Pro ToC: Night 2 Recap

Glendale (MO) vs. Wasatch Academy (UT) Monty Johal of Glendale, who became the Springfield Public Schools all-time scoring leader last week by passing former NFL wide-receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, continued his scoring ways on Friday night, exploding for 30 points, five rebounds, and six assists. He couldn’t carry the Falcons all the way to the consolation […]

For those of you who don’t know, the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions is the most attended high school basketball tournament in the country and it is held in Springfield, Missouri.

National Championship Game Preview

One year ago, I sat here and told you “Why Alabama was Overrated” and picked Clemson to win the national championship. The first reason was the quarterback difference; Jalen Hurts’ average game against top 50 teams was 145 passing yards, one TD and one INT, while Watson’s average game against similar opponents was 297 yards with […]


Instant Reaction: Stanford Sinks Insane Buzzer-Beater to beat USC

In probably the best buzzer-beater I’ve seen all year, the Stanford Cardinals just pulled off a late-night victory in a thriller over the USC Trojans. After Jordan McLaughlin of USC hit what should have likely been the game-winning layup with 1.7 ticks left, Stanford got the quick inbound pass up to Daejon Davis, who absolutley […]

UCF to Hang National Championship Banner

End of an Era? Why This Could Be The Year Kansas’ Streak Ends

In one of the most impressive runs in the history of college sports, the Kansas Jayhawks have won at least a share of 13 straight Big 12 regular season basketball championships. The last time the Jayhawks did not win the Big 12 was in the 2003-04 season in Bill Self’s first year in Lawrence. Since […]


5-Star DE Parsons Chooses Penn State

Micah Parsons, a five-star defensive end from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, has recommitted to the Penn State Nittany Lions. Parsons had originally committed back in February of 2016 before withdrawing that commitment this April. Parsons had also taken visits to Ohio State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Georgia before deciding to head to Happy Valley. The controversy in Parson’s […]

QB WAR: Top Group of 5 Quarterbacks

*Stats through 11/14 Taking a break from the power five, there are some damn good players that go to smaller schools too. It would be curious to see what these guys would do at a major program, but it’s no mistake that four of these five field generals will be playing in their conference championships […]


QB WAR: Top SEC Quarterbacks

*Stats through 11/14 10. Drew Lock, Mizzou (-0.25 WAR) WHAT??? THE NEW SEC SINGLE-SEASON KING IN PASSING TDS IS BELOW AVERAGE? Yup. A surprise to start off the list, as electric as Drew Lock has been, he just beats up on some bad teams. For starters, the only games against bowl eligible teams Mizzou played […]

#SU25: November 29th

*Rankings compiled 11/28 I feel sick to my stomach for ranking Duke #1 finally, but it had to happen. After winning their bracket with impressive comeback wins, most notably against Florida on Sunday night, you can’t dispute how talented Bagley and this Duke team are. Obviously the trailing in games is not ideal, but the […]


QB WAR: Top ACC Quarterbacks

*Stats through November 12th 10. Ben Dinucci, Pittsburgh (0.29 WAR) He may not have gotten the start against Miami, but Dinucci was fine this year. Being just above replacement level in his first year as a starter is just fine. He’s not great, and I don’t think that surprises anyone. 9. Eric Dungey, Syracuse (0.36 […]


SU25: Week 13

During the final week of the regular season, things got shook up a bit in the #SU25. With Alabama’s loss to Auburn, they dropped from first to #5 while Auburn jumped all the way up to number three. Also, Miami dropped down to eighth after losing to Pittsburgh. It will be interesting to see if […]


Playoff Eliminator Week 13

Don’t cry, but this will be the final installment of the college football playoff eliminator in 2017. By this time next week, we will know the field of four that will have a shot at the title. If I had to guess, this Tuesday the committee’s top four teams will be Clemson, Oklahoma, Auburn, and […]


QB WAR: Top Big Ten QBs

*Stats through November 12, 2017 10. Wilton Speight, Michigan  (0.04 WAR) Kinda like Tanner Lee.. he’s fine, just not very good. He’s not going to win you any games with his arm. I know he’s been hurt most of the year, but this doesn’t take that into account. At least he’s better than John O’Korn […]


Alabama Almost Beats Minnesota With Only 3 Players

In a matchup of top 25 hoops teams, Alabama found themselves in a precarious situation today. With about 13:40 left on the clock in the second half and Alabama just trimming the lead to seven, the whole Alabama bench got into it with some of the Gophers. This prompted the entire Alabama bench to be […]


Nebraska Fires Mike Riley

In a move that has been telegraphed for months, the University of Nebraska has finally parted ways with head coach Mike Riley. Many thought this would come much earlier in the season, especially after the blowout losses to Wisconsin and Ohio State. It seems as if another home blowout to Iowa was the final straw. […]
