Now that we have an ebola czar, I hereby humbly declare myself college football czar.
With all respect to NCAA's Grand Pooh-bah Bill Hancock and the 13 voters who will whittle this year's inaugural championship playoff to four teams, I declare it is grossly unfair to limit the field to four teams.
I have a novel idea of how we can decide the eight teams to battle it out for the national championship.
In any sport, winning beats losing. It's why they keep score.
In the case of the Titans, what a difference a week made. Last week, they dropped a close 29-28 decision to the visiting Cleveland Browns. It was lost in the most bizarre fashion - taking a 28-3 lead only to allow the Browns to score 26 unanswered points.
The Titans honored former kicker Rob Bironas before Sunday's NFL game against Cleveland.
They showed a video montage of highlights of his nine seasons with the Titans.
Tennessee's football team is on the right track.
Yes, they lost a tough 35-32 game to No. 12 Georgia. It's a hostile atmosphere between the hedges, especially when you have a freshman-sophomore dominated team like the Vols.
When a quarterback plays well and his team does the same, it is the quarterback that gets most of the credit.
If a quarterback has a bad day, odds are his team will find ways to lose. The quarterback then gets most of the blame.
Tennessee fans looked at the Oklahoma game as a measuring stick to determine just how far second year coach Butch Jones has taken this program.
The Vol Nation is hungry for success, after dismal results produced by former head coaches, Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley.
At this time I would like to congratulate the Big Ten for making the committee’s job easier when they decide on the four best college football teams in the country to play in the inaugural college football playoff.
The Big Ten graciously removed its teams from further consideration by the second week of the season.
Michigan State went into the second week ranked No. 7 in the Associated Press media poll.
After talking, writing and drafting fantasy teams, the college football season is here.
And the surprises, they were aplenty.
The NFL has had its share of players who have broken the law. Some have served jail time for murder, domestic abuse, using and selling drugs.
College football has similar problems. Four Notre Dame football players face expulsion from the program and the school for academic cheating.
This week is the calm before the storm for Vanderbilt and Tennessee’s football teams.
Both teams are in final preparation stages before kick-starting their seasons. They get a jump-start on other SEC teams. With the excitement generated by the SEC Network, they want to play their best, if for no other reason than pride.
