Flipping the Field: The best so far from another spring football season
Spring has officially sprung (though they might argue with me about that in parts of the Midwest and Northeast) and in a large chunk of the college football world, it has already expired. On Saturday a large swath of teams wrapped up their spring practices with their annual spring games. It feels
Need for speed: Fastest players on each top-25 team
Mark Schlabach's 2016 Way-Too-Early Top 25 has Alabama and Florida State in the top two spots, with Michigan and Baylor right behind them. This spring, we've taken a look at everything from the biggest team question mark to the best future presidential candidate . Our latest inquiry: Using
Mark Marquess among old-school coaches under the microscope
