Dec 31st, 2014 at 18:19 American Football 0 comments

This is my penultimate College Football preview of the 2014 season with only the National Championship to be previewed after the set of games on New Year's Day. January 1st sees the inaugural College Football playoff semi-finals between four powerhouses of college football and it represents a historic moment for the sport. Of course, we have the small matter of the Cotton Bowl Classic first which sees the first team …

We're well into the Bowl Season now and now that Christmas is out of the way, the big names of College Football come to the party. With the BCS era ending last season, we now have a six game series of New Year Bowl games that are designed to feature the top 12 teams in College Football. Two of those Bowl games act as the National Championship Semi-Finals whilst one …

NFL Thoughts - Week 17

Dec 28th, 2014 at 09:51 American Football 1 comments

Week 17 of the NFL is one of the worst & best weeks to bet on in equal measure. Trying to gauge how a team like the Jets will play when their season is already over or how many quarters Tom Brady will last is an impossible task. But a matchup like Detroit at Green Bay is a punter's dream. A winner takes all for the NFC North title means …

College Football - Bowl Season Part Two

We've reached the end of the first week of Bowl action and the first part of the blog ended 1-2 with Utah getting us off to a great start with a 45-10 over Colorado State despite being just a 3 point favourite. It went downhill from there as Northern Illinois were completely outmatched by Marshall 52-23 before Central Florida lost last night to North Carolina State. We're getting ever closer to …

NFL Thoughts - Week 16

As we head towards Christmas, we'll see more NFL playoff issues settled on the field tonight and after going 13-2 in Week 14 & 14-2 in Week 15, I'm looking to keep up that record with my thoughts on the Week 16 action Minnesota @ Miami The Vikes ran Detroit close last week to snap a two game winning streak but I still think they are in better shape than Miami. The …

College Football - Bowl Season Part One

Dec 17th, 2014 at 23:26 American Football 0 comments

So we're all done with another College Football regular season and despite the move to a four team playoff deciding by a committee rather than a computer, the final rankings were not without controversy as TCU were dropped from no.3 to no.6 to miss out on the playoffs altogether. As for the results from this blog, since Week Eight it's been a winning week in all but one week as …

NFL Thoughts - Week 15

Dec 11th, 2014 at 09:31 American Football 1 comments

Chip is still sunning himself this week and after going 13-2 in last week's blog I'm on a bit of a high. As Sir Alex Ferguson would say, it's squeaky bum time now for a lot of teams on the cusp of the playoffs and with just three weeks left, there isn't much time left or room for error. Can I get 13 winners again this week? We'll soon find …

My Final College Football Top 6

Dec 7th, 2014 at 15:40 American Football 0 comments

Save for the traditional Army vs Navy game next week, the 2014 College Football regular season is now over and all that awaits is for the playoff committee to decide which four teams will make history and participate in the first ever College Football playoff. I wrote a blog a few weeks ago giving my version of the Top 10 and as promised, here are my final rankings Top Six rankings …

NFL Thoughts - Week 14

Dec 7th, 2014 at 00:02 American Football 3 comments

Chip is away this week and next so there won't be an NFL experts blog. However, I've got myself into a nice routine this year so have decided to post my thoughts on the Week 14 NFL action. I didn't have time to post this up before the Thursday night game which saw Dallas rebound from their defeat to Philadelphia with an impressive 41-28 win in Chicago over the Bears …

College Football - Conference Championship Week

Dec 4th, 2014 at 21:09 American Football 0 comments

We're nearly at Bowl season in College Football and another 2-1 week last week saw this blog hit a 13-7 run since Week Eight. Only Arizona State let me down as they lost at Arizona and after UCLA's surprise home loss to Stanford, the Wildcats get a chance to hand Oregon a second defeat of the season in this week's Pac-12 Championship Game. In my season preview (view it HERE) …

A Surprise & Disappointment from the NHL

Dec 1st, 2014 at 23:13 Ice Hockey 0 comments

We're now two months into the NHL season and the four Divisions are starting to take shape with a familiarity amongst many of the teams currently in contention. But as with every season, teams who were predicted to be contenders have struggled, whilst teams who were predicted to struggle have performed above expectations and now have the playoffs in sight. But which team has impressed me the most and which …
