PODCAST: Week Two Review, mostly about Denard Robinson and other college football stars

Vince Mullins joins Matt McCluskey on WNER 1410 ESPN Radio to review the elegance of Michigan QB Denard Robinson when allowed to create, the execution of the Notre Dame offense (in favor of it), and some of the heretofore unknown college football stars of early 2011. http://fantasycollegeblitz.podomatic.com/swf/joeplayer_v18c.swf

2011 Independents Preview

Notre Dame The Irish have a chance to be good on both offense and defense in 2011, and if the ghost of Declan Sullivan is happy with everyone related to him having season tickets then this season might just be a special one for the Domers. Junior QB Dayne Crist is back as the official […]

Sun Bowl Preview: Two programs whose sun has set

Talk about two storied programs from years-gone-by falling to a level of mediocrity that no one could have predicted. The fans of this series look at this game and yearn for the days of the Jimmy Johnson led Miami team battling the Lou Holtz controlled Irish from the late 80s. This game will really demonstrate […]

FCB FANTASY PLAYER OF THE WEEK…Denard Robinson, Michigan, QB

The last time we checked, the Echoes and Touchdown Jesus were still trying to tackle our Fantasy Player of the Week.

Most of survived Week One intact (except your humble writer here…who seems to have caught the “My Fantasy Team Stunk¬†Last Week” flu), and, Week Two looks pretty promising…for your quarterbacks.

Although there are only 3 Division I-FBS Independents left, there will be plenty of fantasy talent available at those schools. The Independent school that has piqued the most interest is Notre Dame, as they bring in new head coach Brian Kelly (photo, thanks, Scout.com).¬† Kelly has produced potent offenses, and winning teams, while at Central […]

COACHING CHANGES 2010….The Fantasy Impact

As we head into the Spring Practice season for Division I-FBS schools, this is a good time to check out all the coaching changes that happened in the off-season….and the impact they will have on fantasy football this upcoming fall. Almost 20% of Division I-FCS schools changed coaches in the off-season, with the biggest moves […]


If the option offense was a naval fleet, then Navy QB Ricky Dobbs is it Admiral. The Midshipmen QB is our Fantasy College Blitz 2009 Independent Fantasy Player of the Year, and highlights the FCB 2009 Independent All-Fantasy Team. Dobbs (photo, thanks Scout.com), a junior from Douglasville, GA (Douglas County HS), led the Middies with […]

CSI South Bend: Evidence suggests Notre Dame to fire Charlie Weis

In one of the worst kept secrets of the Coaching Hot Seat Season (coincides with baseball’s Hot Stove), my forensic analysis of media reports and my intuition to tie it all together comes to only one conclusion: Charlie Weis is out as the head coach of Notre Dame by the end of November. A regular […]

FROM THE SHOTGUN….Week Eleven QB Start/Sit

With most fantasy leagues well into their playoffs, we will go in a slightly different direction with our From The Shotgun article this week. By now, you have a pretty good idea whether your fantasy QBs are productive, or, are not (the latter is especially for those done with 2009 and already planning for 2010). […]
