    Fansided: Notre Dame Football: Making Schedules Tougher in 2019

    Earlier this week, 247Sports published its list of college football's ten toughest schedules in 2019. Notre Dame absent from the list -- sort of.

    That list included the schedules of the Florida Gators, Maryland Terrapins, USC Trojans, Michigan Wolverines, Georgia Bulldogs, LSU Tigers, Auburn Tigers, Stanford Cardinal, Texas A&M Aggies, and South Carolina Gamecocks.

    Not surprisingly -- and regardless of whether or not you agree -- the SEC makes up 60 percent of that list.

    More importantly for those with a vested interest in Notre Dame football, that list features four opponents on the 2019 Fighting Irish schedule.

    Vanquish the Foe: Countdown to Kickoff (96): How many home games will BYU sell-out in 2019?

    The football season might seem in the distance but here at Vanquish the Foe we're counting down the days until the first game against the Utes. To help ease out way unto the season we're going to spend every day exploring a specific question pertaining to BYU Football. Some of the questions will focus on important topics (offensive play calling) and others will explore the subjects of a rather...inconsequential nature. Today we're going to talk about the attendance at home games.

    There is no arguing that LaVell Edward Stadium can provide a distinct home field advantage for the Cougars.

  • Fansided: Syracuse Strong are ready to defend their crown in 2019

    The Syracuse Strong is a minor league football team in the salt city. They're the winningest program in Central New York.

    In 2018 the Strong had their best year to date:

    Northeastern Football Alliance Champions
    AAA New York State Champions
    AAA National Champions

    Which means the target is squarely on the back of the Syracuse Strong. Every opponent they play this season will want to take the Strong out. In essence, Syracuse will be taking every team's best shot.

    Team President Khalid Bey and Syracuse Strong wide receiver Joshua Thomas joined The Manchild Show with Boy Green to talk about defending the crown in 2019:

    Khalid Bey:

    "Oh we're absolutely ready and you're right.

  • Rocky Top Talk: Tennessee makes the top six for Memphis running back Jabari Small

    Tennessee is looking to pull a running back out of the Memphis area for the second straight season. The Vols were able to keep four-star running back Eric Gray in the state in the 2019 cycle, giving them their only back in that class.

    Following three-star running back Ebony Jackson's decommitment last weekend, Tennessee is in need of another back in the 2020 class, perhaps a couple.

    Jabari Small could be a potential answer.

    The 2020 back included Tennessee in his top six schools on Friday, along with Ole Miss, Michigan, Texas A&M, Missouri and Arkansas.

  • Black Shoe Diaries: Only Anthony Zettel Days Until Penn State Football 2019

    For the past few years, there's been a lot of deserved press surrounding the very good at football and very good human Saquon Barkley. But what if Barkley had had an accident years before, and wasn't able to become the physical specimen that ESPN the magazine documented last year?

    Only the weird and talented Anthony Zettel would have been able to pull that off - one year after upending a tree stump in his off time the previous season.

    Zettel was a part of the Penn State football team in one of the most tumultuous times in its history, spanning the Paterno, O'Brien, and Franklin years - and laying the foundation of the Nittany Lions' return to prominence.

    Fansided: 'Best-Ever' Nick Saban Crimson Tide players: Linebackers

    Our series of Nick Saban's 'Best-Ever' does not include players from LSU, Michigan State or Toledo. Between the three schools maybe two or three players could have been considered for one of our Honorable Mention selections but ...

    Our selections for 'Best-Ever' Alabama Crimson Tide linebackers, under Nick Saban were made by Bama Hammer Contributor, Jonathan Waldrop.

  • CougCenter: The five best non-scoring plays from the 2018 WSU football season

    Good morning Coug fans. We're reached double digits in the countdown to Cougar football, and while that is good and all, the football season is still way too far away. So as we look ahead to next season, I thought we'd also look back to last season. I mean, what else are we going to do?

    I figured I'd do a sort of "Plays of the Year" list, except this one won't include any scoring plays. So you won't see James Williams score on the Big Gulp Left against the Oregon Ducks, and you won't see Gardner Minshew II hit Easop Winston late against the California Golden Bears.

  • Fansided: FSU Football: One simple way to improve 2019 win total

    The main culprit behind FSU football and the worst seasons in four decades was the inability to score points.

    FSU only averaged 22 points per game last season with six of its seven losses coming by two touchdowns or more.

    Aside from the inability to score points was the inability to avoid turning the ball over to opposing teams.

    The 'Noles offense had 26 turnovers in 2018 with 13 fumbles lost and 13 interceptions thrown.

    FSU's offense being unable to move the ball much at all compounded the problem as 22 of the 26 turnovers resulted in opposing offenses getting the ball on FSU's side of the field.

    Fansided: Clemson Football: Will Andrew Booth start as a freshman for the Tigers?

    Andrew Booth will enroll on campus and join the Clemson football team officially in a little less than two months.

    Booth, a 5-star cornerback prospect, will be joining a defensive backfield that is in need of consistent play from the cornerback position.

    As we continue our series breaking down each 2019 Clemson football freshman, let's take a look at Booth.

    Talent Analysis:

    When you think of Andrew Booth, think of Mackensie Alexander, but maybe with even more athletic traits. Booth is a little bigger than Alexander, but runs just as fast and plays with a physicality needed in the Tiger defensive backfield.

    Port Huron Nothern was the place to be on May 24th at 7 p.m. as this was the location where top in-state target Braiden McGregor decided to announce he will be playing Michigan football in a couple of years.
