red river rivalry: time to get nasty


9:06  Ladies and Gentlemen we are off and running this morning.  Becks is decked out head to toe in Crimson Cream and already getting fired up.  I must say he seems a little bit subdued compared to years past.  I think its the hard partying from last night but I have a feeling it will get rowdy upon the first sighting of Colt Mcoy.  Sitting in on the action today is Doug Becker, Justin’s dad, and me.  Should be fun.

2009 College Football Coaching Changes That Matter

In EmptyBackfield’s on going attempt to preview the 2009 season, today we are going to learn about the new Head Ball Coach’s(HBC) at some of the major programs in College Football.  It seems every season almost some part of every program’s fan base is screaming for a coaching change.  “Their” coach has no idea what he is doing, can’t call plays and never blitzes at the right time.   However, what most people fail to realize it is not a walk in the park to fire the old head coach(which these days brings a 7 figure buyout) and bring in that “new snazzy offensive coordinator” who has ZERO head coaching experience.  Well with that being said here are the SEVEN coaching changes that will ACUTALLY matter during the 2009 season and beyond in college football.

top 5 rivalry games you should care about

Football season is creeping up on us faster then a Florida Gator running from the po-po’s so now is a great time to look at the top 5 rivalry games you should watch out for this season. Before we jump into it let’s set some guidelines for the list.

History Matters – One of the best things about college football is the rich deep tradition that it has. We care more about rivalries that have spawned tradition for and love the animosity that it brings.

Is the rivalry competitive - If it is less of a rivalry and more like John Matrix blowing heads off in Commando then its not a real rivalry. Take for example USC and Notre Dame. These two teams play every year but it has become such a lopsided rivalry we could care less. (okay, we always like seeing ND get worked but you know what i mean.)

DG – Volume 1

I am a college football nut.  A Bucknut to be exact.  I worship my Buckeyes, no matter how overrated or slow they are.  But if we can all agree the Big 10 has not been up to par the last few years, can we also all agree on the other truth in the room no one seems to be mentioning…wait for it…
