    You are bad writer. Your writing is poor and your articles do not flow well. Your insights rarely are anything more than surface observations.

    You write a column on the best offensive minds in college football and David Shaw, the best play caller in the game, doesn't make the list?

    Hi Brian, can you help me locate a yearly NCAA DIV injury team stat report for most or least amount of season ending injuries per team per year for the past few years?

    You said that the coaching matchup between Coach K and Cal was going to be EVEN? Were you being facetious? Honestly, that is incomprehensible.

    Hey Brian,

    On http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2571811-college-football-picks-week-5-predictions-for-every-game/page/27 you got the final score backwards (you have Georgia 38 Alabama 10).

    Best Regards,

    Hey Brian,
    I just had a question. I was just reading your new power rankings article. Baylor's page mentions that they are giving up 39 points per game. That can't be right considering they beat SMU 56-21 (I believe), I can't remember the score of the Lamar game but I don't think it got up high enough to raise the average to 39 considering the score of the Rice game was 70-17. Maybe I'm missing some information or maybe I misunderstood something but you might want to fact check that statistic. Thanks! Have a great day
