Last week I thought I would be writing about the Pac-12 in this space but as of now, their situation is still up in the air.Read More College Football Week 4 Expert Picks
The Big 10 is officially back…so now what? Sure, I’m thrilled…more big name college football teams will be playing this Fall. But where is my Pac-12?Read More College Football Week 3 Expert Picks

The end of the football season is usually a depressing time…but this year, I can’t say I’m too upset. My Arizona Wildcats lost their final seven games, my NFL picks have been dreadful, and my fantasy football teams…well, that’s another story.
