The Oregon Ducks should hire Dan Mullen

The Oregon Ducks should hire Dan Mullen as their next head coach. Make no mistake about it: UO is the best job in the country.

Oregon has an open football coaching job. And it’s the best in the nation.

For the first time in 40 years, Oregon will be hiring a football coach looking outside the program, and unlike those 4 decades ago, it’s the best job in the nation.

Week 13 Big 12 Power Rankings

Texas has a new head coach. Bedlam will be a de factor conference championship game. West Virginia looks like a truly solid team, even if it hasn’t been proven over the course of this season because of a weak schedule. Sure, this was far from a banner year for the Big 12. In fact, until […]

Colorado Buffaloes defeat Utah, capture Pac-12 South championship

The Colorado Buffaloes defeated Utah 27-22 to win the Pac-12 South championship.
