FLAG BEARERS

As the CFBHC season rolls near, it's the Michigan Wolverines led by Head Coach jmjacobs who grab the top spot in the preseason AP poll. Will they remain at the top? Or fall to an unlikely upset?

FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

Patriots QB Darren Werner gave us a little blast from the past when he threw for 475 yards and 5 touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in preseason week 2.

IT'S CROOTIN SEASON

Along with the CFBHC season comes CROOTIN! Time to think, and think and think, and maybe overthink your strategies and then get beat out by Penn State on all of your favorite croots.

ALL HAIL MCQUEEN?

Detroit Lions rookie CB Kevin McQueen has made some noise early in the preseason, recording an interception in both games so far. Have the Lions finally found Keyshawn Thompson a running mate?

HOCKEY COME BACK, WE CAN MAKE IT UP TO YOU

    KAFKA'S BOWL PREVIEWS

     

    Playoff Semifinal
    #1:ucf: vs #5 :pitt: (New Orleans, LA)

     

    FOUR KEY MATCHUPS

     

    RB DeNorris Jackson 6-0 235 (Sr) Lake Wales (Lake Wales FL) 5.0 of 5.0 [Power]
    ILB Abe Rock 6-3 235 (Jr) Trinity (Trinity, NC) 4.5 of 4.5 [Mike]
    DeNorris Jackson leads the nation in touchdown, is second place in rushing yards, and third in yards per carry.  Abe Rock & Co. will look to slow UCF's best player.

     

    CB Kevin McQueen 5-11 176 (Sr) Eunice (Eunice LA) 5.0 of 5.0 [Man Coverage]
    WR Adam Coles 6-0 198 (Jr) Parkersburg (Parkersburg, WV) 5.0 of 5.0 [Speed]
    McQueen leads UCF in interceptions (6) and Coles leads Pitt in catches, yards, and touchdowns.  Something's gotta give in this aerial showdown.
     
    OG Marcus Slade 6-4 256 Sr North Florida Community College (Madison, FL) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking]
    DT Matthew Waldron 6-6 292 (So) Penn Cambria (Cresson, PA) 3.5 of 4.5 [1-Gap]
    Slade will look to open big running lanes for DNJ and the 6'6" 292 lbs Waldron hopes to eat space and bottle up the Golden Knight's running game.  Waldron is Pitt's fourth leading tackler and tied for second on the team in sacks.
     
    DE Devin Blakely 6-2 256 (Fr) Sheldon (Eugene, OR) 3.0 of 5.0 [Blitz]
    OT Jaime Reyna 6-2 277 (Jr) Ohatchee (Ohatchee, AL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Run Blocking]
    Blakely is the better half of the Knight sack duo (Matthew McNeil) who totaled 23 sacks this season.  Jaime Reyna will have to play one of his best games this season to keep Blakely at bay.
     
     

    UCF WINS IF...

    DeNorris Jackson rushes for 125+ yards AND they win the turnover battle.

     

    PITTSBURGH WINS IF...

    McConnell throws for one or fewer interceptions AND scores 3+ touchdowns.

     

     

    OFFICIAL PREDICTION
    Pittsburgh 28

    UCF 27
