With just a few days until the opening kickoff of a new college football season, it’s time to think about what will happen in 2014. Most experts have made conference predictions, listed Heisman Trophy favorites and made College Football Playoff predictions for this year. While those may be some of the more interesting conversations, there are still a few other areas of the sport to discuss and predict.
Every year, there’s that one week on the schedule that makes football fans sigh out of disappointment. This year, our sorrow fell on the fourth week of the season, as very few games had any relevance nationally.
But, with the negative comes the positive, as the bulk of the non-conference season is out the window and we can dig in to the meat of the college football season.
Things are starting to shape-up in the college football world, as we begin to see teams wrap up their non-conference schedules and dive into the conference slate.
In episode #19 of The Bottoms Line College Hoops Talk Podcast, host Andy Bottoms is joined by Raphielle Johnson of CollegeHoopsNet to discuss all the latest news and events in college basketball. This week’s episode features a thorough look at the world of college basketball with hot topics from all BCS conferences discussed as well as some notable mid-majors as well.
Andy Bottoms recently started to wonder why the notion existed that playing non-conference road games was worthy of special billing. After doing some research this weekend, he no longer needs to wonder. What he found is a staggering lack of road games for college basketball teams from major conferences.
