Congrats To Texas A&M For The 20– CFB Championship

March Madness Guide For Football Guys: Part 1

As a huge football guy, I’m not shy in saying I probably haven’t watched about 30-40% of the March Madness teams play at all. I do love basketball and play it or will watch it when it’s on TV, but I’m not a huge college basketball guy. That being said, I still have a decent knowledge […]

March Madness Guide For Football Guys: Part 2

After writing the first part of this so-called “guide”, everything is still confusing.

And what the hell is a Bucknell?” Well, This will be you’re helping hand to help us with the Madness that […]

Why I Love/Hate Sports Betting…

So, March Madness is now in full swing. Sister Jean is carrying a team on her back, Nova looks like a lock for the Natty, and UVA has made history by blowing it. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Hey, this is a college sports website, we don’t care about how you spend your money […]

Sister Lavar: College Basketball’s Heel

FBFQB: The Ohio State 3 (Miller, Barrett, Jones)

So a little back story. I played QB all throughout my football career before it was cut short due to a knee injury. When I played in high school, before every game, I would look up college football pump-up videos just to help ease my mind. After searching around during the 2015 season, I found […]

Stanley from The Office is now Leader of Morale for Loyola Chicago

By now, you have heard everything about Loyola Chicago: from the Rambler’s small stadium to Sister Jean (or Sister Lavar), to Alumni coming out to celebrate this small school’s Cinderella story. But recent research on the good ol’ internet has come up with yet another undiscovered treasure… That’s right, Stanley Hudson (aka Leslie David Baker) is […]

TBTQB: Chase Daniel

Now, growing up watching Texas A&M play in the Big 12, I vaguely remember hearing Chase Daniel’s name every once in a while. He also played for the Chiefs and,, in a week 17 game, eliminated the Chargers from the playoffs by winning a meaningless game for KC. So, moral of the story is that […]

Best College Entrances/Traditions Pt.2

Making a Starting 22…Out of College QB’s

If you don’t know by now, I am the resident QB expert for Student Union and just an all around QB guy. I went by Andy (Jon)es Gruden for a few weeks in our Slack and love writing all about QB’s (See my TBTQB Articles). So, while sitting in my science communications lecture bored one […]

Wiscansin is about to win all of the Natty’s

“We Can’t Believe It Either” I was only 9 when the song “I Can’t Believe It” by T-Pain came out. My old iPod Nano would play the song and I’d be bobbing my head with the beat while I do whatever pre-pubescent Andy did. Then, the lyrics that changed the world would be spoken by […]

Why Fans Are The Greatest Thing In All Of Sports…

While watching the NBA Playoffs however, soothing voice and […]

Friday Fire: Gloomy Summer Friday

It’s the end of the work week once again and it means 2 things: 1. The weekend is finally here 2. FRIDAY FIRE Personally, I’m excited for both, but mother nature has decided to be a little bit of a party pooper on this Friday by giving us a little bit of a weather pimp […]

Who Are The System QB Teams In College Football

We hear it all the time. “*Insert NFL QB Here* is a system Quarterback.” Most notably, QB’s such as Blake Bortles, Joe “Elite” Flacco, and even Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr.(Easily a top 5 most White name of all time) have all be slapped with the label of System QB’s. Before we jump into debates […]

5 Programs That Should Be On “All or Nothing”

If you haven’t watched or heard of it, Amazon Prime has a documentary titled “All or Nothing” which is their “Hard Knocks” series. They had done it for the Arizona Cardinal, Los Angeles Rams, and the Dallas Cowboys. Well, after the success of the NFL teams, they released a season on the 2017-18 Michigan Wolverines…. […]

The Decision: Kyler Murray Edition

If you’ve been paying any attention to the MLB Draft (which literally 3 people in the world I think actually watch past the 1st pick), then you heard a very interesting name drafted by the Oakland A’s: This is not the first time that a college football player has been chosen in the MLB draft. […]

Why Texas Can’t Have Nice Things

Tom “The Crazy Hip Uncle” Herman. Bringing his swagger and all that jazz over to Austin to help bring back Texas. Well, spoiler alert: Texas is not back… They have had improvement in the past few years, by winning a few games, but we all remember the greatest game ever played by UT and I’m […]

Baker Plants a Flag Down Center-field At Cowherd University

Baker is back in the mainstream media once again, and oh boy is it for good reason after Baker was invited onto one of the worst sports talk shows in the entire universe, “The Herd with Colin Cowherd”. In the past few months, Colin has not been the biggest fan of Baker’s and even labeled […]
