Louisville Strong: Which Cardinal will have a breakout season?

Coach Bobby Petrino and the University of Louisville Cardinals will have a tough order as they look to replace 14 starters from last year's team. Most glaringly absent is former Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson. Even with its losses, Louisville retains lots of talent and fielded a solid 2018 recruiting class. Which Cardinals will have a breakout...

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Our 2018 ACC Player of the Year

Now that the 4th of July fireworks have been lit and the barbecue is off the grill, our attention turns to football as teams begin to take the field for summer workouts as the season draws near. Team success is always the primary goal, but there are special players who are just a level above everyone else....

One-hit blunder: Will Kentucky ever get over the hump?

It seems like every year under Mike Stoops, Kentucky football is billed to be the surprise of the Southeastern Conference. They’re always supposed to have a lot of firepower on offense and Stoops is always “improving their defense.” The bad thing for their fans (or at least the teasing part) is, the Wildcats always start out well, but flounder...

The Kings of the ACC

College football is nearly upon us and the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) boasts some of the best coaches in the country. As the season approaches, Sportsradioamerica.com examines the top coaches in the conference.   Dabo Swinney, Clemson  Swinney was promoted to interim coach in 2008 after Tommy Bowden was released. He posted a 4-3 mark in...

What the NBA Draft told us about the SEC

The 2018 NBA Draft featured a handful of Southeastern Conference (SEC) picks and not all of them were from Kentucky. Actually, not even the first one off the board hailed from the Bluegrass State. Collin Sexton was the first SEC player selected at number eight by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Kentucky did have four total selections in the draft, with Kevin Knox...

Control Arm: The Top 5 SEC QBs of the last 10 years

 The Southeastern Conference (SEC) has occasionally struggled with quarterback play over the last few years, but appears to be improving in the signal-caller area with Jake Fromm, Jarrett Stidham and Drew Lock. When Urban Meyer came in, many teams utilized a dual threat model quarterback, but they’re now trending toward pocket passers. Let’s look at the Top 5 quarterbacks in the SEC over...

The Pitt and the Pendulum: Panthers return to glory

The University of Pittsburg Panthers missed out on a bowl for the first time since 2007, ending their season 5-7. That record doesn’t tell the whole story, however. Pitt lost three games by six points or less. A bounce-back post season seems obtainable. Quarterback Kenny Pickett is coming off his first, full season as a starter,...

When it comes to recruiting for college sports, how young is too young?

Kiyaunta Goodwin isn’t even in high school yet, but he’s 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 350 pounds. Schools are already drooling over him, and he was pictured this past weekend with Nick Saban. Goodwin later revealed Saban offered him a scholarship to play at the University of Alabama.  Saban isn’t the...

Law of the Jungle: Clemson Tigers still king of the ACC

The Clemson Tigers possess one of the best defensive lines in the country and a solid back seven in the loaded Atlantic Coast Conference. Offensively, Clemson is littered with playmakers, with three, up-front starters returning to school. Senior Kelly Bryant returns, opening up fall camp as a starter, while freshman Trevor Lawrence looks to establish...

Turnabout is fair play: SEC changes its transfer rule

Recently, the Southeastern Conference meetings in Destin, Fla. made a big splash in the lives of college athlete transfers. In the past, players had to get a waiver from the school they’re transferring from to be eligible immediately. And, for the most part, no coach would sign that waiver; even if the student already received their degree.  Recently, Nick...
