Hoops Hardwood & Gridiron Dilemmas



#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ #GeauxTigers Does #LSU have a problem #NFLDraft

Spring game season is nearing an end and we are now only months from week 1 of the college football season. Alabama may not have a QB probem in 2017, but one certainly is brewing in 2018. #LSU anemic offensive struggles appear poised to continue. Since Joe Montana is all of eligbility it looks like its Myles Breenan or bust. NFL Draft week is here, so that means its time for leaks, failed drug test, and accusations


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ #Buckeyes #Bama #AaronHernandez 1 more chance?

Aaron Hernandez, former Gator who caught passes from Tim Tebow died this week. The kiler of Will Smith, former Buckeye was sentenced to 25 years in prison for murder. Each of these extremely talented young men wow us with their athletic ability but there off field exploits made many question their judgement. Despite their abilities on the gridiron are their college coaches liable for turning a blind eye? Do the college programs share in the blame for fostering an air of invincibility thay...


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ #OnWisconsin #TheU n #Gators the fake #DBU

In 1999, the Wisconsin Badgers reached the height of its football program history, Rose Bowl and Heisman. The Badgers blueprint was a tremendous had worked. The Hurricanes were on the verge of a dynasty, after a 9-4 finish championships soon followed. In order for both of these once proud programs to re-emerge, running backs are key. Programs all across the nation lay claim to DBU, but whose the real and whose the fake? Colorado, Washington, LSU, or Florida


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ #OnWisconsin #NFLDraft #BillSnyder #BrianKelly +more

Spring is in the air, in stadiums all over the country your favorite team is poised to improve and redeem themselves from last year's mistakes. Five stars are not for everybody, but just because you miss out doesnt mean winning isnt possible. Wisconsin and Kansas State continues to thrive with an abundance of 3 stars, walk-ons, and no stars because they know who they are. What they do for an encore starts in the spring.


#Countdown2Kickoff #Tarheels #redemption who's next? #Cane #Pokes

The ACC is the new king of college sports, after coming up short in 2016, #UNC and #Clemson redeemed themselves in 2017. So who will be next? Confetti and netting cutting may happen in January and April, but the real work is done in the spring and fall. Oklahoma State may have the most explosive offense in the nation but there is still work to do. The Canes may not be back, but boasting the top recruiting class in the country must mean that they are cose.


#Countdown2Kickof cont w/ #WeAre #TarHeels #SpursUp #SkaiMoore #Final4 +more

After an epic showing in the Rose Bowl momentum in Happy Valley is higher than ever. Penn State is getting pledges from 5-star recruits left and right. With week 2 of spring practice nearly in the books, we discuss standouts, concerns, and players poised to breakout. There are 50 states, but the fortunes of the Palmetto State has the envy of every state in the country - Two final fours and a National Championship all in one year. In a so-called 'football conference' football is taking a...


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ QBs #ProDays n Practice #FearTheFrog #Buckeyes

163 days until week 1 of the college football season. Til then coaches are climbing mountains, ranting at reporters, and one coach in Norman is continuing the habit of looking the other way. Til week 1, we talk pro days and spring PRACTICE. Come one come all, the freshman are here and they are going for that No. 1 spot


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ @aseaoblue #TheOtherGuys #BBN Football

March Madness is here, and we are now only two rounds away from the Final Four. While this is exciting for most, the footbal programs aka 'THE OTHER GUYS' struggle to get notice only gets harder. Are football programs at basketball schools fighting a losing battle, can the two co-exist or is there only room for one big man on campus


#Countdown2Kickoff cont No QB job is safe #UGA #TCU #RollTide #HookEm #Buckeyes

Spring is in the air, march madness is the appetizer and college football is the main course. The early enrollees have arrived, hungry and wanting NO ONE'S JOB is safe. JT Barrett, Jalen Hurts, Shane Buechele, Kenny Hill, and Jacob Eason you've all been warned. You all had great years, but the new guys on campus weren't brought in to redshirt or hold clipboards.


#Countdown2Kickoff w/ @McBeezy the future of #Baylor Life after #ArtBriles

The glory years of Baylor football seem like yesterday but are those days gone forever. Each day brings another lawsuit or another story of bad press but things certainly cannot be bad always, right? Matt Rhule was a magician at Temple, now he will be counted on to be a healer in Waco.


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ Where's the O #CoachMac? #NFLCombine #UF +more

3 years ago the University of Florida fired their coach b/c of an enemic offense, however despite having a different the Gators coach, the problem still remains. Only in SEC country is back-to-back Eastern Division champions a disappointment. However, with new reinforcements in tow, who are the names to know in the QB race. While there defensive pipeline continues, who will be poised to replace Tabor, Maye, Wilson, Davis, Anzalone, and Brantley, and Cox Jr. In addition, we look at NFL...


#Countdown2Kickoff Is #USC #Trojans back? Can #Baylor come back? #SicEm #FightOn

When USC defeat Penn State in the best Rose Bowl in ages, it signaled the return of two tradition rich programs back to the national stage after a decade long scandal. Is #USC back or is this a #MattBarkley false alarm? Can programs like #Baylor & #OleMiss follow the Trojans and Nittany Lions path back to the national relevance?


#Countdown2Kickoff So you want to win? Is #Maryland the next #OleMess or #Baylor

So you want to be a winner? When your not a 'blue-blood' program Ws and national attention are a bit harder to come by. Getting the coach, keeping the coach, getting the players is no easy task. If you want to win it no only takes dollars but it also takes SENSE. Baylor, Oregon, and Ole Miss were almost there, each program nearly made it to the promise line, only to fall short. Will Maryland share a similar fate?


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ @fsunole21 How about those #Noles QBs? #OleMiss +more

FSU quarterbacks do the darndest things... Chris Weinke pissed off a hall-of-famer, Jameis Winston took the women's movement back to the 1920s... Malik Henry transferred...DeAndre Johnson back in Florida and DeAndre Francois threw a rocket over the largest frat house in America...FSU may be alot of things, but its far from boring. The Noles week 1 opponent from last year Ole Miss is in hot water, would a 1 year bowl ban be enough or is the Hugh Freeze era already near its end


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ @TheMichiganMan #JimHarbaugh #NSD #NFLCombine

March Madness is less than a month away but fans in Ann Arbor are already looking forward to Harbaugh-Meyer III. 100k seats may be empty but there is hardly a boring moment in Michigan when Jim Harbaugh is your coach. From go carts to selfies with Allen Iverson, the summer of Harabaugh promises to be a good one. So get your wheeties, hold the milk and add gatarade becaause its about to go down.


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ @ccmachine #SoonerMagic #TraeYoung #BoomerSooner +mor

33o participants were invited to the 2017 nfl combine, one Sooner made the cut while another more talented Sooner missed the cut. Witih an offense in total overhaul which new Sooner recruits will step in and make a difference. If Mark Stoops last name was not Stoops would he be gone? In light of Joe Mixon and DeDe Westbrook fiasco how have the Sooner changed there recruiting strategy


#Countdown2Kickoff w @ClintRLamb #RollTide #NSD #BamaOC If ur not 1st ur last

Alabama can't win them all. Although no one remembers second best, how the Tide responds will be truly compelling. Another top recruiting class certainly helps, but who will coach them? 3 OCs in 2 months is not a good look. And the only thing that was worst was seeing Jarez Parks breakdown on an emotional NSD day. Tune n2 #Countdown2Kickoff as we discuss #NSD as well as the latest happenings in the world of college sports


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ @DonJamesSports #GeauxTigers & Hokies @gobblercountry

The Rajin Cajun aka Coach O may have signed a top class, but he's still having an off-season to forget. No Kiffin No Marvin Wilson. Now there may be a #CoachOBan. In HokieLand, a mass exodus occured No Evans No Ford No McMillian No Cam No Bucky NO OFFENSE. Someone please dial Hokie 9-1-1 In both Blacksburg and Baton Rouge, help is on the way but which newcomer will be their next brightest star? Tune n2 #Countdown2Kickoff for this and more.


#Countdown2Kickoff Life After #DeshaunWatson & #JohnRoss #PurpleReign #Clemson

For true college football fans there is no off season. Hardware has been handed out and letters have been signed. Now the real work begins. Tune n2 Countdown2kickoff as we discuss the latest happenings in college football. Thanks to transfers, dismissals, and the dog days of summer there wont be a boring moment. Year in and year out, players come and go, but it is no way in hades that Clemson and Washington keep it rolling without a hickup with such a massive exodus of talent, or is it?


#Countdown2Kickoff cont w/ #NationalSigningDay the morning after

National signing day has come and gone. Fans believe they have filled the holes to make a run, but still only there will only be four. Although there were no mom's who made NSD a day to remember tune in as we share a unique yet honest perspective on the winners and losers of signing day.
