    Who is blogging about college football and doing a really, really good job? Let me know, let me know why, hit me with a link.
    If you are tempted to post a smart ass response, please don't.
    Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    I have no idea what is considered a really good job in this context, but most of the good team blogs have been integrated into the SB Nation borg. Some of the better ones:

    Independents of interest:
    http://thebirddog.wordpress.com/ (erratically updated but very option-savvy navy blog)

    As far as national blogs go, the far and away best is Doctor Saturday, which is a Yahoo joint, and EDSBS, which does mostly humor. There is also The Wizard of Odds, which is the project of a Jay Christensen who used to work for the LA Times. I'm not a huge fan since it seems to look for any opportunity to be outraged.

    I run mgoblog, FWIW, which is a Michigan blog.

    Two good general college football coverage blog links are:



    Of course, the really good national college football beat reporters (Chris Dufresne as the prime example) provide coverage that may or may not be exactly in the form of a blog. Nevertheless, what they have to report - - and say about their reports - - every couple of days is well worth noting.

    I've heard of this sports writers website that has a dandy college football poll...
    youtube hasn't even taken down his final poll from 2009 yet...

    Funny as hell but not real informative.

    Yeah, the facts are usually wrong as well, but funny as hell.

    www.rockmnation.com does some great stuff with advanced football statistics and predictions. He went 60 percent against the spread for the first month last year.
