College Football Playoff First Look – Interesting

By joelb | November 1st, 2017

The first College Football Playoff rankings came out last night.    There was nothing really all that surprising about the first one.  We here at BiglakeSports have maintained that the first ranking still comes out too early.   It really does not make much difference this week where teams are slotted.    Next week or the […]

Conference Champions – In the NCAA FBS Conference Championships do not Matter

By joelb | January 2nd, 2017

Conference Champions have gone by the wayside.  Well anyway it seems like the Conference Championship games have.  The first year of the playoff the Big 12 was pretty much kept out with the reason that they did not have a championship game.  Of course they did not help their cause by using the term One […]

New Years Eve Smacks College Football Playoff in Face

By joelb | January 3rd, 2016

New Years Eve did not turn out to be the massive ratings win that the College Football Playoff was expecting.  Why they thought this was a good idea is a mystery to everyone but them.  Even ESPN knew it was not going to be a good thing for ratings and tried to get them to […]

Replay – I’m Over it Stop it now

By joelb | December 27th, 2015

The need to get things exactly right in games that are imperfect is getting very tiresome to me.  Replay is becoming a bigger problem then the problem it was supposed to resolve.  It seems to me that not only is replay slowing games down but it is also leading to more and stranger officiating errors […]

By joelb | November 19th, 2011

It was  a rough week for the picks last week.  Did anyone get the number of that truck that hit us last week? In the first game Stanford decided that they were just going to be declared the winner of each game this year and forgot that Oregon had an explosive offense and a defense […]

Amazingly we had a very good week last week.  Really who would have thought that Alabama would miss 4 field goals in this years game of the Century.  We had LSU winning in a close one.  It was close and a lot lower scoring than I had thought it was going to be.  Either both […]
