The Florida International Golden Panthers made a very surprising decision on Wednesday, making the announcement that head coach Mario Cristobal had been relieved of his duties.
Cristobal, who played at the University of Miami in the 1980’s and took over as Golden Panthers head coach after the 2006 season following a three year run as an assistant at his alma mater, posted a 27-47 record in his six years with Florida International, including a 3-9 mark this season. (more…)
South Florida announced today that Skip Holtz, the son of legendary head coach Lou Holtz, has been let go after spending three years as Bulls head coach.
Holtz, who arrived in St. Petersburg after compiling a 38-27 record as East Carolina head coach, leaves South Florida with a record of 16-21, including a 3-9 mark this year. (more…)
This Saturday, October 27th is the day that the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party kicks off again between the #2 Florida Gators and the #10 Georgia Bulldogs, pitting two fierce rivals against each other yet again.
Rivalries in college football are like popcorn at the movies: it’s a huge part of what makes the whole experience so enjoyable. However, I think the scope of a “rivalry game” isn’t quite narrow enough, so I feel the need to set the record straight.
It’s time again for another edition of the Fetch Football Forum. In this week’s edition we’ll take a look at the Dawgs’ domination, the Volunteers’ scare with the Zips, and the running joke that has become the Arkansas Razorbacks. (more…)
Tennessee went into this game looking to beat a rebuilding Florida team pretty easily, but as any die hard Vols fan knows, one can never sleep on the Gators. They will bite you if you underestimate them. That is exactly what they did in a 37-20 win over Tennessee. (more…)
Week three of the college football season saw several moments in SEC play, including the Tide rolling over the Razorbacks, the Gators taking over in the fourth quarter for the second straight week, and the Wildcats wondering if they should even bother still fielding a football squad. (more…)
Welcome back to the Fetch Football Forum. This week’s key SEC matchup pits the Florida Gators against the Tennessee Volunteers, a matchup that was once the most highly contested in the entire conference but had died down due to the tremendous amount of success that Florida experienced during Urban Meyer’s time in Gainesville. However, this year looks to be different, as Derek Dooley’s Vols finally look reloaded and ready to give the Gators a game.
Another Saturday of football has come and gone, which means it’s time yet again to look at which Southeastern Conference teams skied high and which ones just plain fell flat. (more…)
This Saturday is a huge day for SEC football, as the conference’s newest members—Missouri and Texas A&M—will play in their first conference games against Georgia and Florida, respectively. With the hours quickly ticking down to kickoff, now is as good of a time as any to take a look at both games and who will prevail when the final gun sounds. (more…)
Week 1 of the college football season saw the SEC prevail in the majority of its games, as the conference’s members combined for a 10-3 record in the opening week (It’s important to note that one of those teams that lost—Vanderbilt—faced off with South Carolina). Here’s a recap of each team’s game starting with the school that had the best outing and ending with the team that had a day to forget. (more…)
SEC Media Days kicked off yesterday in Hoover, Alabama, allowing media members from across the country to ask questions concerning the upcoming season to the conference’s top head coaches and players.
Although the focus is truly on those who actually play a role on the field and on the sidelines on Saturdays in the fall, a bit of the limelight goes to the sportswriters covering the event, who are always polled in order to predict the conference’s champion. The predictions have been generally off, however, as the media has posted an abysmal 4-16 record in doing so (last correct prediction was Florida in 2008).
With the press being off so much in general in regards to SEC play, I took it upon myself to make up for their miscues and release my own predictions on how the Southeastern Conference will play out this season.
Today is Sunday, June 17th, which is significant for two reasons: it is Father’s Day, the one day out of the year that we take time to thank our dads for walking us through the other 364 days with very little disruption, and it is exactly 74 days until the 2012 college football season kicks off. With the days quickly winding down, it’s important that the avid fan out there knows what to look out for once the first sets of games get under way in what promises to be another year full of wild upsets, dramatic comebacks, and hilarious head coaching meltdowns.

What a difference a day makes. By waiting an extra 24 hours for this week’s Two Minute Drill, we were able to witness and discuss one of the NBA’s greatest players going down with a debilitating injury plus all seven rounds of the 2012 NFL Draft. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the five biggest stories from the week that was: (more…)
In my brief time writing “J-Hill’s Two Minute Drill”, I don’t believe that there has been a busier and more headline-filled seven days of sports. Let’s take a detailed look into the week that was: (more…)
