BCS Rankings Week 3: No. 6 Alabama

Posted by Todd Kaufmann on October 31 2010 Add Comments
Don't look now, but here come the Alabama Crimson Tide.When they lost to South Carolina, I wondered aloud if Alabama would be able to crawl back into the BCS championship conversation.It seems they're doing just that, even with a bye week.Although, you probably want to thank Michigan State and Missouri for where they are especially with those two previously unbeaten teams now no longer unbeaten.However, don't look now, but they will have to fight and ...

BCS Rankings Week 3: No. 7 Nebraska

Posted by Todd Kaufmann on October 31 2010 Add Comments
If strength of schedule means something, I keep wondering how Nebraska still sits where they do.Their lone loss came at home against Texas, a team that has been beaten twice now at home against UCLA and now Baylor.Granted, Baylor is a better team this year than any of the past years, but Texas is looking like a really bad loss right about now.I continue to wonder when the real Nebraska team is going to show ...

BCS Rankings Week 3: No. 8 Oklahoma

Posted by Todd Kaufmann on October 31 2010 Add Comments
I didn't agree when the BCS poll put Oklahoma at the top spot in college football, and it was proven the following week when the Sooners lost to Missouri.Their two wins against Texas and Florida State are looking worse by the week and especially against Texas who just lost at home, again, this time to Baylor.Florida State just lost as well to NC State this past Saturday.Whether or not you believe the Sooners to be ...

Ohio State Basketball Preview: Freshman Aaron Craft

Posted by Danny Tarter on October 31 2010 Add Comments
Today's profile will be about my sleeper pick for most important player in this recruiting class, Aaron Craft. For those of you who don't know, Aaron Craft is a 6'2", 190-pound point guard out of Findlay, Ohio. Yes, that is correct, I said point guard. And that is exactly what has me so excited about seeing him play. Ohio State has not had a true point guard since the days of Jamar Butler (no, P.J. Hill ...

No. 1 Duke Blue Devils Dominate in Exhibition Opener

Posted by Curtis Clontz on October 31 2010 Add Comments
Every college basketball team dreams of cutting down the nets, but only Duke was capable of completing this task last year.  The Duke Blue Devils finished last season as the best team in college basketball.  They are the current kings of the mountain. The countdown to craziness is over and now, it's finally time for Duke to begin their championship defense.  This season it all started with an exhibition game against St. Augustine's. This one was never ...

Oklahoma Football: Sooners Rebound as Broyles and Co. Roll Colorado Buffaloes

Posted by Luke McConnell on October 31 2010 Add Comments
It took the Sooners a little bit to really get rolling, but when they did, it was all over very quickly.   Oklahoma rebounded from last week's disheartening loss at Missouri with a 43-10 victory over the Colorado Buffaloes at Owen Field Saturday night.   The Sooners rolled up over 600 yards of offense, including 488 through the air, which set a new school record for passing yards in a game.   The defense did their part as ...

Texas Tech Football: Call Your Therapist! 2009 Vs. 2010 Strictly by the Numbers

Posted by Amy Daughters on October 31 2010 Add Comments
It doesn’t really matter how beautiful of a fall morning it is when you wake up to the reality of an ugly loss to Texas A&M. Yes, the fall foliage set against a deep clear blue sky does nothing to mask the stark actuality that Texas Tech dropped a game to the Aggies in College Station, and basically proved on field what we have feared all season—we’re not a very good football team. The commodity of hope ...

Ducks Spank USC; Revenge Continues To Be an Elusive Ally For The Trojans

Posted by Rick McMahan on October 31 2010 Add Comments
When USC went 9-4 after the 2009 season, most Trojan fans glumly smiled and said "wait until next year." After all, those four losses were all Pac-10 conference foes and USC had just come off a remarkable seven year run where they had dominated all comers in that time period. Then the NCAA laid down their hammer on USC and the pall cast upon the team was accompanied by player defections that depleted the depth ...

Oregon Ducks or Auburn Tigers: Who Is the Best Team in the Country?

Posted by Matt Regaw on October 31 2010 Add Comments
As of now the Oregon Ducks and the Auburn Tigers are arguably the two best teams in the country. However there has been some debate on which team is actually better. The AP Top 25 Poll and the USA Today Coaches Poll both believe that the Oregon Ducks should own the top spot in the country, but the BCS standings have the Ducks at No. 2 right behind the Auburn Tigers in the top spot. ...

BCS To Notre Dame: Excuse Me Sir, But We’re Going To Have to Ask You To Leave

Posted by Damon Young on October 31 2010 Add Comments
Notre Dame has become that unfortunate drunk person at the party. It's like someone you used to respect has had one too many and really is just hanging around at a place looking like a fool. This is like how the fledgling Irish still have an affiliation with the BCS. It's time for them to be officially escorted out of college football's elite party scene, because they've embarrassed themselves on the field for the past ten ...
