What Caught My Eye Week 9, 2021

They scheduled a football game out in Provo, Utah last Saturday night, and a basketball game broke out. That’s not true, but for folks who check the college football scoreboard it must have looked that way at first glance. But it was only a case of both teams having mediocre defenses this season, and their offenses picking up… Read More »

What Caught My Eye Week 8, 2021 College Season

As usually transpires, as the season progresses, teams continue to show their true colors. But hiccups occur, like in the Big Ten, where despite the return of SEAN CLIFFORD at the QB position, and playing at home in Happy Valley, the Nittany Lions fell after what felt like a gazillion OT’s, to lowly Illinois. As good of a… Read More »

What Caught My Eye Week 7, 2021

I guess one of the big stories around college football last weekend was the announcement that LSU had reached a buyout agreement with Head Coach ED ORGERON. There had been hot rumors flying around all season that the LSU Athletic Director, who did NOT hire Coach O, was looking to hand the football program over to someone of… Read More »

What Caught My Eye Week 6, 2021

Some rather “interesting” developments amongst some of the best football programs in the country were pretty hard to miss last weekend.  First of all was the end to the longest Win streak in college football when Texas A&M Head Coach JIMBO FISHER did indeed pick off his old boss, NICK SABAN, in Aggieland. What made it so impressive… Read More »

What Caught My Eye Week 5, 2021

It seems quite clear to me, as we almost reach the halfway mark of the 2021 Collegiate Football season, that ALABAMA and GEORGIA are clearly 1 & 1A in whichever order you prefer. Georgia handled Arkansas, who was coming off of their big win over QB-less Texas A&M, with their own backup at the helm, while Alabama ran… Read More »

What Caught My Eye Week 4, 2021

Just a brief explanation of how I decide what games to watch for scouting purposes on any given weekend. The primary, overriding criteria, by far, is the competitive nature of the matchup for each game. I absolutely refuse to create a thumbnail on an athlete playing for a nationally ranked program that is playing some cream puff competition.… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 3, 2021

Let’s see here… Southern Cal fired respected Coach Clay Helton a week ago. And the Football Gods have responded, and with a vengeance. Starting QB KEDON SLOVIS went down to a serious injury against Washington State. He was replaced by true frosh JAXSON DART, who had a great game against Washington State. This story sounds eerily familiar for… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 2, 2021

I want to flash back one week to start this week’s edition of WCME. I ran out of time last week, and did not have enough time to watch my recording of the Nevada/Cal game from Week 1 action. I have since watched it, and felt like I needed to flash back and give my impressions from watching… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 1, 2021

The college football season has truly begun, after a “fake” start the final weekend of August. We were presented with a full slate of games, with some high powered matchups. There were plenty of upsets, and even more close calls for highly ranked teams. Expectations are that we will be watching a plethora of legit NFL candidates in… Read More »
