FROM THE SHOTGUN…Week Seven QB Start/Sit

Although the game has lost some of its luster as the 2009 season has progressed, the annual Red River Shootout between Texas and Oklahoma should be another interesting 60 minutes of football this coming Saturday. Even with Oklahoma already recording two losses this season (both by one point to two ranked teams), the Sooners still […]

FROM THE SHOTGUN….Week Six QB Start/Sit

Welcome Back, Kaepernick! Because I ran out of clever things to say beyond mis-quoting titles of 70’s TV shows, we at FCB welcome the return of Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick (photo, thanks IconSMI) after an early season of sluggish stats and no wins. However, in Nevada’s 63-28 win over UNLV this past weekend, Kaepernick and […]

FROM THE SHOTGUN…Week 5 QB Start/Sit

Injuries…they stink to high purgatory…and, unfortunately, are part of the game of football. On Saturday night in Lexington, Kentucky, the college football world watched Florida QB Tim Tebow (photo, thanks IconSMI) take a nasty hit on the back of his head when he hit a teammate’s leg while being sacked by a Wildcat defender.  A […]

FCB FANTASY PLAYER OF THE WEEK…Week Four…Jerrod Johnson, QB, Texas A&M

Maybe he was playing with the Twelfth Man all game long…. Or…maybe he just needed ten men… However which way he did it, Texas A&M QB Jerrod Johnson, our Fantasy College Blitz Fantasy Player of the Week, sicced Reveille all over UAB in the Aggies 56-19 win over the Blazers in College Station on Saturday […]

FROM THE SHOTGUN…Week 4 QB Start/Sit

Unfortunately, in football, injuries are common…. Sometimes too common. This past Saturday, South Florida QB Matt Grothe was lost for the season as he tore the ACL in his left knee during the first half of the Bulls 59-0 win over Charleston Southern…thus ending the collegiate career of the possible four year starting QB. Grothe led the Bulls […]

FCB FANTASY PLAYER OF THE WEEK…Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma

His debut in week one was quite inauspicious…and a lot of other negative words that may not be suitable to print. However, Oklahoma QB Landry Jones (photo, thanks, LATimes.com) has improved exponentially (hey, is that a good word?) since his struggles vs BYU in the Sooners opening game loss….after he was called on when 2008 Heisman […]

FROM THE SHOTGUN…Week 3 QB Start/Sit

Nothing like consistency…. That is what you get with Houston QB Case Keenum (photo, thanks Scout.com). While other QBs make fantasy players, coaches, owners, prognosticators, et al…make one stupid with inconsistency, Keenum makes everyone look like a genius. Keenum led Oklahoma State to a 45-35 win in Stillwater last weekend, while putting up some good […]
