Before you think I’ve lost my mind about suggesting a Division I College Football 64 team playoff, hear me out…. or should I say, ‘Please hear out HC Mike Leach of Washington State University Cougars.’ It’s apparent he’s put significant thought into this idea and specifically outlines every detail during our interview with him on the Coach’s Daughter Show on 104.3 ESPN Panama City over … Continue reading College Football 64 Team Playoff?
It’s the end of November which means it’s Rivalry Week, where a team at the bottom can beat a team on top. Records, strength of schedule, star athletes and veteran coaching staffs can be thrown out the window – you never know what will happen when rivalry teams line up on the field. Personally, I have a hard time even saying ‘Rivalry Week’… but apparently … Continue reading “As Long as We Beat _________”
