Not a lot trickling out of Twitter today, but I managed to find a few good pieces.

#CFB - 6/15/17

I'm starting a new feature at the blog, where I post tweets that catch my eye in relation to college football.  I imagine this will be a bigger feature the closer we get to the actual season.

National Title-Winning Coaches Update

First off, I commend Bob Stoops for identifying when the time was right for him to leave and congratulate him on an outstanding career with Oklahoma. He’s taken a few “character chances” in the last 3-4 years, but he’s generally been one of the good guys in the sport. Best of wishes moving forward, Big Game Bob!

That being said, we are down to 4 active coaches who have won a national title. Back in January, I promised I would break down the head-to-head history. With Bob’s retirement, my job just got a little easier 😊.

An analysis of Mark Richt's tenure at Georgia

To the casual college football observer, Mark Richt is a respectable head coach.  He coached the Georgia Bulldogs for 15 years, and only had one losing season (a 6-7 mark caused by a bowl loss).  Nine of those seasons had 10 or more wins.

But one thing Richt always gets dinged for in a coaching discussion is his inability to get Georgia to the national title, and even the inability to win the SEC championship, even though Georgia was in the perceived weaker SEC East.

I thought I would take a look at Richt's tenure at Georgia just to see if any of those message board claims have any merit.

Butterfly Effect Games: Win the Battle, Lose the War

As I wrap up this set of Butterfly Effect games for this off-season, I'm going to do something different. Here is a look at a few different games that gave a program a short-term boost, but may have hindered things in the long term.

Continuing on in our look at how certain games may have shaped college football history, we come to what is perhaps the game that gave us the College Football Playoff.

Butterfly Effect Games: 2017 Edition, Part 1

A few years ago, I looked at three games and speculated what might have been had they gone the other way. Now, with a few more years of hindsight, I figured I’d take a crack at a few more. 

First up: the 2008 South Carolina at Clemson game.

ACC-SEC Challenge 2016 outcome

I can't believe I forgot about this business from the season until now.  We entered the season with 9 ACC vs. SEC games scheduled.

Trip to the College Football Multiverse - Part 3

Hopefully you've enjoyed the first two parts, where we explored what the smaller championship game scenarios might have looked like under past systems. The "alternate universe" trilogy ends right here, with a look at what might have been under a bigger playoff.

Trip to the College Football Multiverse - Part 2

Continuing on in our "alternate championship" series, we find ourselves at the predecessor to the CFP - the Bowl Championship Series!

Trip to the College Football Multiverse - Part 1

When looking back at college football, one of the funnest - and most time-consuming - things to do is wonder "what if". Well, let's take one more look at the season that passed and see just how it might have gone down in an alternate universe.

2016 Season in Review

As a college football fan, this is always the toughest part of the year. There are 229 days between the CFP Championship Game and the beginning of the 2017 season (counting the "Week 0" slate). If there's any silver lining, however, at least this is the time for the blogs to have some fun!
