Since the inception of the BCS at the conclusion of the 1998 football season, we've witnessed the emergence of a new system which relied on a combination of polls and computer selection methods to determine the final two championship teams. Just like most things, this newly developed system was met with much criticism, as some undefeated programs were omitted from consideration altogether. For years the debate waged on and the demand for a more adequate system became the battle cry for many disappointed college fans nation wide. Those grumblings were answered with the implementation of this seasons college playoffs. A twelve person committee now has the responsible of selecting the correct 4 teams to participate in what should be another landmark in collegiate sports. The long and arduous road to football supremacy is now in its final stretch, yet many are still skeptical about whether this new format will finally get it right. Former Miami Hurricane standout and 11 year NFL veteran Ryan McNeil, tells us why Noles and Canes program dislike for one another runs so deep. As well as, why the Hurricanes influence over football has transcended time. Atlanta based sports personality and radio host John Michaels, joins the program to breakdown ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) grudge match between the Seminoles and the Hurricanes. A game that could determine the fate of more than the teams involved. RantSports writer Jeff Hauser stops by to tell us who could receive his Heisman Trophy vote and you maybe shocked at his answer. If you're still on the fence about what college programs are the most important to the college sports scene, well this addition of SECondaryPerSPECtive settles all of that. One thing is for sure, there will be more massive shake ups before all is said and done. And we could be on the verge of another SEC (South Eastern Conference) takeover. Find out if a two loss SEC team deserves the right to compete in four team playoff and if all the other conferences are really inferior as some may think. Prepare to be entertained, as we get you set for another wild weekend in college football.

Growing up in the inner city of Miami has presented me with many obstacles to overcome. No matter how bleak things might have looked or what odds might have been stacked against me, I never stop fighting for what I want. I went from a college walk-on at Morris Brown College to a scholarship student-athlete at Georgia Tech. It was imperative for me to display my athletic abilities on a larger platform. This mindset has pushed me to chase my dream over 3 continents by way of the CFL, NFL Europe and finally the NFL. I took that same approach to my education when I gave up a $50,000 work-out bonus to return to Georgia Tech and earn my undergraduate degree in Business. I was presented with an award from the NFL because of my scholastic achievements. As an undrafted player in the NFL I’ve seen my fair share of highs and lows in my 10 year career. The knowledge gained on and off the field has led to my continued work as a Sports Analyst. I can recreate the passion I had on the field as an analyst to help undrafted players find success in the NFL. Maintaining the proper attitude with perseverance has allowed me to continue my pursuit for perfection as I embark on what is sure to be a great 2nd career.
I continue to use my celebrity to bring awareness to outside causes and community organizations. This allows me to mentor future leaders of tomorrow, aspiring athletes and help troubled youth. Nothing is better than knowing that you’ve had a major impact on someone else’s life.
