The North Carolina Tar Heels are 3-0, ranked inside the top 20, and have a legitimate shot at getting back to the ACC Championship Game in December, in large part, because of their QB Drake Maye. Yet, there are those who believe that Maye, who entered the season as a proverbial top 5 pick in next year's NFL Draft, and a sleeper for the Heisman Trophy, hasn't played at the highest level to start the season.

The 2023 college football season is in full swing, with Week 2 already underway. When you look back at Week 1, one of the more impressive results, was North Carolina routing South Carolina 31-17, in the Duke's Mayo Classic. Drake Maye, who is considered a consensus top-5 pick in next year's draft, and a potential Heisman Trophy candidate, played well, throwing for two touchdowns.

The 2023 college football season gets underway this weekend, with a handful of Week 0 games, before the season gets into full swing next weekend across the Labor Day holiday. Among the many questions across the sports landscape, involves the Clemson Tigers, a perennial power in the 2010s, that has missed the College Football Playoff the last two seasons. As the sport has changed in recent years with the arrival of NIL, and the ability to transfer without penalty, Dabo Sweeney hasn't been very welcoming to the new way the game is being played, and many believe that is the reason for his programs' "drop". Let's not act like the last two seasons have been bad, as Clemson has won 21 combined games, captured another ACC championship, and went to another New Year's Six bowl game. But when the expectation is a national title or bust, it's easy to see why there are doubts that Clemson has staying power in the new world of college football.

In the modern era of college football, offense is the name of the game, and it's hard to be a national title contender unless you're capable of scoring over 40 points per game. When Clemson was winning national titles with Deshaun Watson and Trevor Lawrence, the Tigers were generally among the best offensive programs in the country. Since Lawrence departed for the NFL, Clemson hasn't had the same level of offensive output, and that's the biggest reason why the Tigers haven't made the College Football Playoff since losing to LSU in the 2021 national championship game.

The Head Football Coach for the App State Mountaineers Shawn Clark joined Kyle Bailey on Monday to look back on the roller coaster 2022 season, and how he plans on bouncing back this year. The conversation started by reflecting on the 2022 season in which App State finished 6-6 Shawn pointed out how the first […]

When Mike Hill made the decision to fire Will Healy eight games into the 2022 season, he knew then that he was going to have to think outside the box, to find the right guy to lead his football program. Healy was able to guide the 49ers to their first-ever bowl game, but could never build off that season, and with Charlotte set to make the move to the AAC, they needed someone capable of taking the team to new heights. 

When you think about the Dabo Swinney era at Clemson, the first thing you'll think about will be the annual trips to the College Football Playoff, the multiple national championships, and the countless conference championships. And as you could imagine, the play of the quarterback during that time is the main reason for all that success. While Tajh Boyd never won a national championship, he's the QB that helped get Dabo's program back into the national spotlight, taking the Tigers to back-to-back BCS bowl games. Following Boyd, was Deshaun Watson, one of the highest-rated recruits to ever commit to Clemson, and he didn't disappoint, taking the team to the College Football Playoff in consecutive seasons, winning one national title, and losing in another. After Watson, comes Trevor Lawrence, an even higher-rated recruit, who didn't disappoint either, losing only one game as a starter, while taking the Tigers to a third national title, and losing in another.
