Thu, 19 Oct 2017 18:03:54 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.2 ACC’s 20 Best Matchups in 2012 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/26/accs-20-best-matchups-in-2012/ Fri, 27 Jan 2012 04:01:40 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/26/accs-20-best-matchups-in-2012/

TweetFor about five years now I have defended the ACC. I've told family and friends that an ACC team was going to step up and become a serious national contender. Clearly I have been wrong. Ever since the ACC expanded the first time with Boston College, Miami and Virginia Tech, it's like the conference has […]

10 Coaches Facing Make-or-Break Seasons http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/23/10-coaches-facing-make-or-break-seasons/ Mon, 23 Jan 2012 15:54:57 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/23/10-coaches-facing-make-or-break-seasons/

TweetBoston College's Frank Spaziani needs a win more than he needs a hug. And he's not alone. Even before national signing day and spring practice, there are at least 10 coaches who need a big 2012 to save their current jobs. Some may actually pull it off, but it's not going to be easy. Spaziani […]

Orange Bowl champs honored http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/22/orange-bowl-champs-honored/ Sun, 22 Jan 2012 20:24:00 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/22/orange-bowl-champs-honored/

TweetWVU's overtime victory over Cincinnati on Saturday was exciting, but my favorite moment was at halftime. Enjoy the video (courtesy of Blue & Gold News) as the 2012 Discover Orange Bowl champs are honored. Also, is there any coach in America cooler than Dana Holgorsen? I think not. Great job by the fans, as well. […]

25 Players Whose NFL Draft Stock Soared After Insane Bowl Performances http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/19/25-players-whose-nfl-draft-stock-soared-after-insane-bowl-performances/ Fri, 20 Jan 2012 03:44:17 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/19/25-players-whose-nfl-draft-stock-soared-after-insane-bowl-performances/

TweetIf you had never heard of Terrance Ganaway before the Valero Alamo Bowl, I'll bet you do now. That's of course if you stayed up late into the night to watch him. A great bowl performance can make any player gain more name recognition. But can it help a player improve his draft stock? Well, […]

Which Teams Have a Right to Gripe About Final AP Top 25? http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/15/which-teams-have-a-right-to-gripe-about-final-ap-top-25/ Mon, 16 Jan 2012 02:14:16 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/15/which-teams-have-a-right-to-gripe-about-final-ap-top-25/

TweetThere are programs who would just love to crack the final Associated Press rankings. Then there are those who only care if they are in the Top 10, and another elite group who feel the season isn't a success unless they are a Top-5 team. With a few media voters picking LSU and Oklahoma State […]

Tweethil and Tom are keeping it a little shorter than normal, but that doesn't mean we have shortchanged anyone—especially the BCS National Championship game. Was Alabama's 21-0 victory over LSU the most boring game ever? See what we think. How about Nick Saban? Is he the greatest coach ever? We mix in a little Penn […]

TweetWith the SEC rematch between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama almost set to be played out in the BCS National Championship, it's time to offer some thoughts and predictions on the game. Does Tom have a man-crush on Nick Saban? Sort of seems like it, but you'll have to listen for yourself to […]

My Favorite WVU Bowl Memory http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/04/my-favorite-wvu-bowl-memory/ Wed, 04 Jan 2012 15:39:30 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/04/my-favorite-wvu-bowl-memory/

TweetI actually remember watching quarterback Oliver Luck lead West Virginia to a shocking upset of Florida in the 1981 Peach Bowl. There was the 1989 Fiesta Bowl when WVU faced Notre Dame with a national championship on the line, and the 2000 Music City Bowl where the Mountaineers defeated Mississippi allowing Don Nehlen to leave […]

2012 Discover Orange Bowl: 5 WVU Players You Need to Know http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/03/2012-discover-orange-bowl-5-wvu-players-you-need-to-know/ Wed, 04 Jan 2012 04:26:31 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/03/2012-discover-orange-bowl-5-wvu-players-you-need-to-know/

TweetClearly the national perception is that West Virginia and the Big East don't deserve a spot in the Discover Orange Bowl. But when it comes to BCS bowl games, West Virginia has a knack for making its critics think twice. The Mountaineers knocked off Georgia in the 2006 Sugar Bowl, and then turned the trick […]

TweetWhile the Orange Bowl has a matchup of two three-loss teams, it is also an early look at two teams who could be serious national contenders in 2012. Clemson (10-3) surprised almost everyone with their quick start and two wins over Virginia Tech, including the thrashing of the Hokies in the ACC Championship Game. With […]

TweetLSU may be loaded with talent, but that shouldn't detract from the outstanding coaching Les Miles displayed this college football season. If he can get the Tigers to win one more game, Miles will earn his second BCS national championship and beat Alabama and Nick Saban twice in one season. There aren't many coaches who […]

TweetUCLA's hiring of former NFL coach Jim L. Mora created some divisive opinions on the choice among college football pundits and fans. More recently, Todd Graham's departure for Arizona State after just one season at Pittsburgh was ridiculed by many. Currently, 18 of the 25 openings in the FBS have been filled. That means there […]
