Branding + Focus = “Every Night Should Be Saturday Night”

Loyal Wisdom readers have no doubt noticed a couple of things over the past few years – I don’t write a lot here anymore, and when I do it almost invariably focuses on college football, and most specifically LSU football. So as we approach the 2010 football season, I came to believe a change was [...]

If A&M is headed to the SEC, who becomes the 14th team?

And now in the fast-changing world of reported impending conference moves, Texas A&M is believed to be leaning toward joining the SEC rather than following Texas into the would-be super conference we shall call the “Pac-16″ for now. The Aggies would be a good addition for the SEC, what with their historical rivalries with Arkansas [...]

So will the Big Ten have a championship game?

Now that the Big Ten Conference will have 12 members come 2011, there is a “presumption” that the conference will go the SEC route and split into two divisions with a blockbuster football championship game at the end of the season. But Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany – on record saying a title game is [...]

A Pac-16 … without a championship game?

So it appears the Big 12 is a day or so from complete implosion. Nebraska is expected to jump to the Big Ten, which would open the door for Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado to align with the Pac-10. And Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State and Baylor will end [...]

The Pac-10 / Big 12 Merger

Most of the rumors of impending conference shifts this off season have been easy to ignore. But this week’s bombshell out of Rivals.com (a Yahoo company and well-respected outfit) that the Pac-10 is prepared to absorb half of the Big 12 to create a 16-team mega-conference can’t be easily dismissed. It’s an out-of-the-blue concept and [...]

Big Ten – The CMT of CFB

The talk of Big Ten expansion and the expected ripple effect through major college football is inescapable this off season. The presumed dominance an expanded Big Ten apparently would claim has forced every university president and athletic director – from the heavyweights to the barely existent – to ponder what Big Ten expansion means to [...]

LSU Football 2010 schedule wallpaper – the honest version

Because let’s get real, aight? We’re this: Not this: Saying it don’t make it so.

Foursquare Wars: SEC football stadiums

Fans of SEC football teams love to tout their team’s rankings – from numbers of titles won to recruiting class rankings to seating capacity and on and on. So here’s something else to chew on and watch over time: Foursquare popularity of SEC football stadiums. And since the spring is a preview of the fall, [...]

The Quotable Les Miles

I just put the wraps on an amusing (to me, at least) new Bet-R Sites project – The Quotable Les Miles. As you might have guessed, the site features quotes from LSU head football coach Les Miles. If you don’t follow LSU football, the concept probably won’t make much sense to you. But if you’re [...]

SECCG Pick & Week 13 Recap

I suppose I shouldn’t wait until kickoff to make my SEC Championship Game prediction. I’m going with Alabama, mostly based on what I think with be Fonzie’s ability to get his guys to finish this year’s game after throwing away a perfect season, SEC Championship and BCS title game shot last year. Bama 20 – [...]
