Lions vs. Bears: Six Hidden Matchups

November 26th, 2014

Kent Lee Platte, @MathBomb

It isn’t often that a team plays the #1 team in the NFC and AFC in back to back weeks, but the Detroit Lions did just that. They lost both games, which concerns me much less than the fact they didn’t score a TD in either.  Moving on to their annual Thanksgiving game, the Lions return home against the Chicago Bears. As a division  game, there are always big stories, even more so with the Lions soaring and the Bears doing the opposite. There are still those under the radar matches I love so much, so let’s once again take a look at the hidden match ups for the Detroit Lions against the Chicago Bears! Read the rest of this entry »

USC vs UCLA Scouting Preview 

November 22nd, 2014

This Saturday features a highly anticipated bout between two top notch Pac 12 teams that have both played quite well despite some early struggles. UCLA had a lot of expectations coming into the season and have underwhelmed in comparison.

Nelson Agholor and Leonard Williams might be the most highly touted prospects from USC and have received plenty of first round grades from scouts everywhere. Here are some other prospects to keep an eye on.  Read the rest of this entry »

Time for some #MACtion!

Being from Ohio has given me a bit more love for the Mid- American Conference than most and there is no shame in that. These weeknight games are an outlet for not so heralded prospects and for once, all eyes get to be on them. Last season we were able to catch a glimpse of the San Francisco 49ers’ first round prospect, Jimmie Ward as he dominated for Northern Illinois and frequented the weeknight stage. That doesn’t mean that every Tuesday night we will see an elite prospect, but this conference has produced NFL stars in Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Gates, and Jason Taylor. Those names are enough for me to pay attention to what the conference has to offer. Read the rest of this entry »

Yet another bizarre finish as Florida St. edges Miami after a disastrous first half and coming back strong in typical Seminole fashion. Winston was erratic throughout but showed poise and leadership in crunch time and led his team to victory with the help of Jalen Ramsey and Dalvin Cook.
