Yesterday, all potential Friday Roundup topics promptly took a back seat in my brain once Todd Gurley's suspension hit the newswire. Georgia originally announced the suspension as "indefinite", but Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman and his source believe the suspension will only last two or three games. Regardless of suspension length, Gurley will likely bid farewell to any chance of winning the Heisman thanks to this mess.

While I feel for the Marooned Five, and certainly hope they find themselves out of limbo soon, both myself and the rest of the … [Read more...]

Opponent Watch: Saturday Appetizer Edition

Syracuse has a much more … [Read more...]

Savin’ Aven

Savin' Aven No Text
