It’s been a pretty good week of football, my friends. I’ll admit that I’ve been a little more caught up in the NFL’s race to the playoffs than I have been in college bowl season, but yesterday’s games were all terrific. Western Kentucky won an instant classic in the First Responder’s Bowl against Western Michigan, […]
Happy Friday, friends. I’d hoped to get this preview up yesterday, but I’m up in Vermont with my family, and the skiing has been pretty good. All that clean mountain air can be a little distracting to say the very least. The As For Football crew sincerely hopes that you had an excellent Christmas or […]
Bowl season won’t be nearly as fun without Army playing, that’s for sure. But there are still some interesting match-ups. These are As For Football’s Top 5 for week 1. As For Football’s Top 5 Bowls (Week 1) 5. Hawaii Bowl: BYU (-2) vs. Hawaii (ESPN) Who doesn’t love Christmas football? You’re downstairs wrapping […]
The AFF crew normally does Games and Locks of the Week as a patron-exclusive post on Patreon. But since there’s no Army game this week, I can only imagine how badly you fine folks are dying for some good old fashioned As For Football content. We’re not here to disappoint. So. I’ve split out and […]

The Army Football Team has reported to summer camp, and that means the 2019 season is finally on its way. College football starts this month! We’ll preview Army’s defense next week, and we’ll preview the offense the week after that, but we wanted to take a few minutes this week to talk about what we […]
Week 3 of As For Football’s conference previews looks at the American Athletic Conference. As a bonus, we’ll also look at Army’s independent opponent, UMass. If you missed previous entries into the preview series, these are archived below: Conference USA Mountain West Spring Football Roundup (1st QTR) Spring Football Roundup (2nd QTR) Spring Football Roundup […]
We started this year’s preseason preview series last week by looking at Conference USA. This week, we talk Mountain West. The Mountain West conference is arguably the most nationally competitive conference in the Group of 5. The American has had more Top 25 finishers over the last four years, but the Mountain West has had […]
One of the biggest challenges of rooting for a college football independent is establishing expectations before a given season. Growing up in a Tennessee Volunteer household, I learned a little something about the SEC, and especially the SEC East, just through repeated exposure to the divisional teams. That wasn’t enough to make me an expert, […]
