The good folks at www.collegefootballzealots.com have posted a preview of our 2011 season in which they asked me to write up a piece:San Jose State fans have not had much to cheer about over the last two years. In that span they've only won 3 games and two of those were against Cal Poly and Southern Utah. By the way, the other was against New Mexico S...
With the anticipation of Tate Forcier coming to Sparta next year (and presumably starting), the question I would have is not who is going to be the starting QB this year, but rather who SHOULD be the starting QB this year.As a reminder, the 4 vying for the job: Matt Faulkner (Senior), Dasmen Stewart (Sophomore), Blake Jurich (Freshman) and Joe Gray (Fresh...

It's a bit ironic that the Mountain West Conference is meeting in Las Vegas on January 24th and 25th to discuss their future options, especially since their #1 decision could turn out to be a gamble.Do you choose the safer dollars (media market money) or go for what's behind Door #1 (potential AQ status- or a "ZONK")?Monty Hall couldn'...
Well, THAT was an interesting game.The Spartans, in what is becoming somewhat of an "usual-unusual" pattern, played their heart and soul out (usual) and made #21 Nevada truly EARN their win against us (unusual). In what was supposed to be a complete blowout by a VERY improved Wolfpack team with its arsenal of lethal weapons in QB Colin Kaepernick...
Anyone who has seen me post on this site and write on this blog knows that I take it pretty easy on the Spartans for the most part. Tonight will be VERY different.Instead of an analysis like I usually write, I will give my thoughts on this game.There's no excuse for the result of this game. None. Zilch. The offense started the game doing OK, then...
This week's analysis will again not focus on Wisconsin per se, but rather how the SJSU Spartans did against the #11 team in the county. Two top-11 teams, two consecutive weeks, two REALLY tough opponents on the rosd. On to the numbers:The offense:55 net rushing yards252 net passing/receiving yards2 interceptions1 fumble/0 lostMUCH, MUCH better numbe...
We are 1 week into the season.This week I'm not going to analyze Alabama's stats (at least entirely). The reason for that is that Bama was clearly the better team and you don't need stats to show that. What I'm going to analyze is how SJSU did against the #1 team in the country, taking into account the assumption that this is going to be...

Before you roll your eyes and think this is another blog about how the BCS is corrupt, I am here to say it's not.At least not directly.As someone who works in politics, I can give a first-hand account of how certain areas of the United States need college football and politics to work hand in hand.I'll begin by pointing to a story on Politico.com...

It's not THAT far-fetched of an idea. In fact, it makes perfect $en$e.To better understand this concept, you have to look back at when this whole controversy/playoff talk really started to heat up. Ever since the BCS has come into existence, it has been filled with problems and controversy. It seems that every year, rules are being tweake...
