Rams Draft

As you all know, I’m blessed with the curse of being a St. Louis Rams fan.  About ten years ago, it was a great thing.  Now we’re the laughingstock of pro football.  I guess we’re not the Lions, but you get the idea.  It’s bad.

Anyway, we have a decision to make with the upcoming #1 overall pick in the draft.  With many obvious holes to fill and no real chance to contend next year, (or the year after…or the year after…) I’d like to give my strategy for the upcoming draft.  This might give away my picks for the upcoming Fan Mock Draft, but I have the #1 pick and a few back up plans.

College Football Awards

I realize that the season is one week old so this is a little late, but it’s always fun to do these.  I’m going to run through all the college football awards and tell you who is going to win each one.  Simple enough.

Big 12 South Preview

spo_ft_big12conference_1006A while ago Weller and I decided we’d do some previews for the upcoming college football season.  Since we’re lazy we decided to do the only two conferences that matter: The Big 12 and the SEC.  I’ll be taking the Big 12 today and Weller will do the SEC whenever he gets around to it.  Maybe the Vandy fans will come back and give him crap for that too.

So let’s get started in the South.  Obviously the stronger of the two divisions, the South boasts two true title contenders going into the season in Texas and Oklahoma plus  the upstart Cowboys of Oklahoma State, rebuilding Texas Tech, up and coming Baylor and Texas A&M.
