When The Devy Breaks: Trey Sermon Has Untapped Potential

Welcome back to When The Devy Breaks, your weekly rundown of the college football landscape and how it affects your devy league rosters.

When The Devy Breaks: Master Teague Is Waiting In The Wings In Columbus

Week 4 of college football taught us a few things about teams near the top of the rankings: Alabama’s offense might be the best we’ve ever seen. Ohio State is a bonafide national title contender. Clemson has work to do to meet expectations. There wasn’t plenty of action outside the upper echelon as well: The long hard road finally caught up to USC and BYU. Maybe Stanford isn’t entirely dead after all? Rutgers is the cure for the common dysfunctional offense. Just ask Michigan. Welcome to When The Devy Breaks, your weekly rundown of the college football landscape and how…...

When The Devy Breaks: Opportunity Is Knocking For Ja’Marr Chase

Last Saturday night in Pullman, WA, a college quarterback tossed nine touchdowns in a single game and lost. LSU, a team that featured a caveman offense for the last decade or so, scored 69 points against an SEC opponent. And UCF, a team that had won 18 straight regular season games, was down 21 points to Pitt, came back, then lost on the final drive of the game. The weirdness, drama, and constant evolution of college football is why I love this sport. This is When The Devy Breaks, your weekly rundown of the college football landscape. With four weeks…...
