Oakland Raiders are an utter mess

By Kevin Rosenthal

The Oakland Raiders made yet another coaching change earlier this week by firing Dennis Allen. Once a proud franchise, recent years have tarnished the Raiders’ prestige. It seems that, at least in recent memory, every decision this franchise makes turns out to be a bad one.

The Raiders drafted Derek Carr, hoping to have finally found the franchise quarterback that has been missing since Rich Gannon wore the famed silver and black on Sundays. However, the season has gotten off to a poor start, leaving the team in search of a new answer to its latest head coaching woes.

It just so happens the Raiders may have found their solution to already be on the payroll. In naming Tony Sparano Interim Head Coach, the team has a veteran coach with plenty of coaching experience. Sparano is in his 30th year as a football coach, dating back to his days as an Offensive Line Coach at the University of New Haven.

Over the course of his career he has served as offensive line and tight ends coach, offensive coordinator, offensive quality control coach as well as assistant and head coach. He has been an NFL coach since 1999.

His loan previous stint as an NFL head coach came with the Miami Dolphins, where he was at the helm from 2008 through 2011. During that time, Sparano led Miami to a division title but his overall record during his tenure was a lackluster 29-32.

Pats and Brady are out of excuses

By Kevin Rosenthal

The New England Patriots have been considered a perennial NFL contender every season for more than a decade. Tom Brady stepped in and was able to finish what Drew Bledsoe started. Three Super Bowl rings later, Brady and Bill Belichick became the media darlings of the league.

But outside of those three titles, what have the Patriots done for you lately? The truth is, well, not much. Over the last decade and then some, they have dominated what has been arguably the weakest division in football from top to bottom.

Where there once was a dynasty, there is now a team that is a mere shell of its former self. But this was not an overnight occurrence, rather something that has been happening right before our eyes for several years.

During their best years, the Patriots often had the ball bounce their way. They won their three championships by a combined total of just nine points, yet are often heralded as if they won in dominant fashion. If John Kasay doesn’t shank a kickoff, the entire history of the league may have changed!

#2 Auburn vs. #3 Mississippi State 3:30pm CBS

Notes: Since 2009 Auburn is 4-1 vs MSU with the average margin of  victory of 9.7 points per game.

Auburn Offense:
The Tigers have one of the best rushing attacks in the nation (15th in the nation) . Led by QB Nick Marshall the Tigers are averaging 42 points per game and have gotten stronger as the season has progressed. Marshall has completed 57.9% of his passes for 755 yards with 8 TD's and 1 INT. He has also added 4 TD's on the ground and averaged 6.8 yards per carry. The Tigers have become more balanced this season and are averaging 229 passing yards per game. WR's Sammie Coates and D'Shaquille Williams are players that can stretch opposing secondaries and can take the top off the defense. Williams leads the team with 25 receptions, while Coates is averaging 20 yards per catch. Auburn's offensive line has been playing very well throughout the season and has allowed 3 sacks through 5 games.

Oct. 4 Week 6 college football marquee matchups

By Joe Lisi

#19 Nebraska (5-0) vs. #10 Michigan State (4-1) Time 8:00 pm EST

Notes: Nebraska has won 2 of last 3 meetings. Both victories have come  in East Lansing.

Nebraska Offense:

The Cornhuskers are averaging 45.4 points per game and have one of the Big 10's best running backs in Ameer Abdullah (833 rushing yards 7.8 yards per carry 8 TD's) . The strength of the Nebraska's offense is the offensive line that is averaging 354 rushing yards per game. The Cornhuskers have been wearing down opposing defenses and have opened gaping holes for Abdullah and quarterback Tommy Armstrong (420 rushing yards 2 TD's). Nebraska is passing for 217.8 yards per game and will be facing their toughest opponent in the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday. If Michigan State forces Nebraska to throw the football, look for Armstrong (53.9% 10 TD's 3 INT's) to utilize wide receiver Kenny Bell (20.5 yards per reception 2 TD's) down  the field.

Nebraska Defense:
