BLITZIndex College Football Defense Rankings, Week 11: I have run out of clever Frog similes

TCU at the top of the heap again, even after letting a tough San Diego State team hang around and score 35 on them – they padded their points per game stats all year to compensate. Here is my exclusive ranking, an equal weighted index of yds/play, yds/pt and pts/gm allowed to determine the best […]

BLITZIndex: College Football Defense Rankings – Superfrog still reigns

TCU continues to lead the nation in fantasy stinginess – Horned Frogs pace FBS with top ranks in points per game allowed (8.5) and yards per point allowed (25.4), while narrowly in second in yards per play allowed (4.0, to Boise’s 3.7) Median scores for the three variables I use to rate the nation’s defense: […]

BLITZIndex Defense Rankings: Horned Frogs still the baddest in the land

TCU still rocking the top of the national college football defense rankings, leading the nation in Yards per Point allowed (25.1, or you gotta go 150 yards to score a TD equivalent) and also Points per game allowed (8.67, with only 16 in last five).

FROM THE SHOTGUN…WEEK TEN QB START/SIT

Can you believe it…the fantasy regular season is just about over for all of your leagues!

You read that right – in my unique defense rankings, TCU and Utah reign supreme, and the long-forgotten San Diego State Aztecs sit at number 11 putting the Mountain West Conference among the best defensive groups in the country. While TCU is no surprise and the SEC is all over the Top 25, the presence […]

FROM THE SHOTGUN…WEEK NINE QB START/SIT

Amazing!  Hard to believe the fantasy season is almost over! For most leagues, this is either the last week, or, the next to the last week, for regular season fantasy action.  These games are important for those fantasy coaches who are looking for a playoff spot…selecting a good fantasy team QB is a must. Fortunately, […]

BLITZIndex Week 7: TCU spitting blood on opponent offenses

The Horned Frogs defense always prospers under Coach Gary Patterson, but in 2010 they have defended their turf at the highest level – TCU has allowed 10 or less in five of seven wins and are #1 in nation with 9.3 pts/gm allowed. As such, given #3 ranking in yds/play and #2 in yds/pt the […]

MOUNTAIN WEST CONFERENCE 2010 PREVIEW

The annual pre-season Mountain West Conference checklist always seems the same: Have a good number of players become fantasy-friendly (i.e….lots of stats):  Check. Dominate the BCS conference mostly to the west of us (Pac-10):  Check. Crash the BCS:  Check. The MWC has been active in the 2010 off-season, becoming one of the players in the […]
