FORT WORTH, Texas - A Texas kid who could have gone anywhere but elected to move to Ohio to play college football does not hold back in his feelings about why we here in this great state can't win a national title.

For the first time in quite some time, the Big Ten enters a football season with a level of uncertainty. The league is still reeling from being shutout of the College Football Playoff for the second year in a row and to top it off, one of its premier schools is facing a change at the top. Heading into this season, here are three questions facing the Big Ten: 1. Can the Big Ten make its way ...

OAKLAND, Calif. - When Kyler Murray was selected ninth overall by the A's in June's MLB draft, the thought of him actually having a shot to play in the NFL was a mere fantasy. He was the heir to 2017 Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield, taking over as quarterback for a traditionally high-powered Oklahoma squad.

Jim Harbaugh needs to beat Ohio State. You could argue he has to beat Ohio State. But technically that isn't true. He isn't going anywhere, win or lose next week in Columbus. Still ... if he loses? Everything he has done the past two months fades to black. Rebuilding after a tough loss at Notre Dame. Demoralizing rival Michigan State. Demolishing Penn State. Brushing off Wisconsin like a ...

LAWRENCE, Kan. - No matter who else is hired to a college football head coaching job over the next several weeks, none will come with more fascination than the one introduced by Kansas on Sunday. Relevancy followed Les Miles to Lawrence and into his news conference. For the first time in a few KU football hires, nobody was asking, "Who's he?" or "Why him?"

This has a chance to sound like the lament of a lost Longhorn. (It isn't.) This may even read like the belated confession of someone who has finally seen the light. (He hasn't.) All I can tell you, as we move into that portion of the season in which the College Football Playoff rankings become part of our weekly viewing habits, is that I'm ready.

Jim Harbaugh is absolutely right. College Football Playoff needs to expand, and not by a little. The Michigan coach said Monday at the Big Ten media luncheon in Chicago that the FBS playoff needs to grow from its current format of four teams to 16 teams.
