The Emasculation of CFB…..

Posted by on October 20th, 2013 in blog, CFF Features, Jeff Siverhus | 1 Comment

    Let me start by stating clearly I am all about player safety.         With that out of the way, let me also say this is FOOTBALL. It is by its very nature a violent sport. It is in many ways similar to NASCAR in the fact that people tune in to see wrecks and violent collisions. And if the powers that be continue to eviscerate our game, it will suffer the same fate that is befalling NASCAR.   For those of us that grew up...

Bubba & Willie Gameday….

Posted by on September 29th, 2013 in blog, CFF Features, Jeff Siverhus | No Comments

Only in an epic SEC showdown will you find a “Bubba and Willie” as ESPN Gameday host “pickers”. If you missed it; former Masters Champion and UGA Grad Bubba Watson and Duck Dynasty star and Louisiana native Willie Robertson were ESPN’s guest representing their respective teams. It was really a very entertaining exchange. I don’t know about you, I just thought to myself, only in the south. Below is the whole segment, if you missed it………

Pre-Season rankings distort CFB landscap

Posted by on September 16th, 2013 in blog, CFF Features, Jeff Siverhus | No Comments

    OK…..I am back from long sabbatical and jumping on the soap box       I realize the pre season rankings stir excitement for college football fans everywhere. The issue that I (and everyone else) should have is, it’s just an educated guess based on returning starters; with a bit of last year’s success thrown in. Once the season starts there isn’t much, if any, strength of schedule applied to the rankings. The problem is that once an Ohio State or Louisville (for example) starts out the season...

Lack of Communication!?!?

For those that didn’t watch the NFL draft, to see Geno Smith waiting to get drafted was, well, painful to say the least. There has been much speculation as to why he plummeted to the second round, when many had him a Top 10 pick. As it turns out the reason may be another example of a generation that has lost its “face to face” communication skills. I have heard that sports is just a microcosm of society as a whole. If this is true, this is a telling story of...

SEC Dominance in 2013 NFL Draft

Posted by on April 28th, 2013 in blog, CFF Features, Jeff Siverhus | 1 Comment

This is a follow up to my earlier article on the NFL draft. After all is said and done this 2013 NFL draft is in the books. The NFL draft has a total of seven rounds. The first six are commonly regarded as the most relevant. Often the seventh round is considered the “compensatory” draft. This is not meant to diminish the relevance of the “7th” round; just to inform. After the seventh round has been completed, the signing of “undrafted free agents” begins in hast. As expected, and predicted...

SEC King on NFL draft day again?!?!

Posted by on April 25th, 2013 in blog, CFF Features, Jeff Siverhus | No Comments

We all know the SEC has been the big bully on the block in college football for the last decade. The proof is in the last SEVEN in a row and eight of the last ten National Champinships. With that said the upcoming NFL draft will again be bulging with SEC talent from top to bottom. Our friends over at Saturday Down South compiled a list from the past ten years of drafts. It may or may not surprise you to know the Georgia Bulldogs are on top of that...
