How Penn State can make the leap to elite, and more Week 8 thoughts

ESPN
“How did you go bankrupt?” Bill asked.“Two ways,” Mike said. “Gradually and then suddenly.” — Ernest Hemingway, “The Sun Also Rises” In the present tense, it can seem impossible for a new team to join college football’s ruling class. You fall short again and again, and it starts to feel......

Bama, Bear Bryant and a trainer’s bet: Why the Alabama-Tennessee cigar tradition means so much

ESPN

College football’s midseason-ish awards: Top players and unbelievable moments in a season like no other

ESPN

Alabama remains the SEC king, Trevor Lawrence remains unstoppable and more from Week 7

ESPN
You come at the king, you best not miss. That’s a quote from “The Wire,” but there is a good chance the writers of that show stole it from Nick Saban. Saturday was supposed to feature a wounded Alabama. It was a week of turmoil amid Saban’s COVID-19 test that,......

Mega Bama-Georgia preview: A nearly perfect offense vs. a nearly perfect defense, and much more

ESPN
Because 2020 has to have an element of surreality at all times, the biggest game of the 2020 college football season to date will take place without the most successful active coach in the game. With Nick Saban testing positive for COVID-19, No. 2 Alabama’s battle with No. 3 Georgia......

Yes, friends, even game officials can land on our Bottom 10 list

ESPN
[Editor’s note: The Big 10’s arrival for this fall college football season is imminent. But for now, the SEC owns college football (both good and bad), Clemson runs the ACC and the Big 12 is, well, the Big 12. As always, the Bottom 10 sorts it out.] Inspirational Thought of......

Clemson keeps rolling, Saban outlasts Kiffin in college football’s wild Week 6

ESPN
We’re trained to root for the hero in stories because we all want to believe we’re the good guy, too. But if we’re being honest, the villains make a story fun. Superman has the powers, but Lex Luthor has the personality. And so it is with Nick Saban and Lane......

College football Week 6 preview: Can Miami take down No. 1 Clemson?

ESPN
This weekend’s college football slate appeared to have a pretty strong tag: Red River Week. No matter what else was going on, you knew there would be at least one season-defining game on the docket. So much for that. Texas and Oklahoma are a combined 3-3, and neither is in......

Like it or not, the SEC will again be the center of the CFB world in 2020

ESPN
Do you hear it, off in the distance? It’s still faint, because we’re just a month into this strange attempt at college football in 2020, but it’s there — that familiar refrain, the siren song we’ve heard before. Listen. “S-E-C!
