New Years Day Picks

Happy New Year. Usually the best bowl day of the year, this one should be no different. Auburn is already on the way to blowing out Northwestern…alright, so maybe not quite a blowout yet, but soon. The second batch of bowl picks was more successful, with four wins, but I still would not have been … Continue reading

College Basketball Previews: SEC

There’s a saying in the SEC: “Basketball? Everyone knows basketball starts in January.” The truth of this cannot be understated as the conference is in no hurry to start playing one of its worst sports. That said, its marquee team is finally back. An NIT-invitee last season, Kentucky is a consensus top-5 team right now, … Continue reading

Weekend Wrapup

Yes, Woody Paige said, “we didn’t know whether the Broncos were for real or for fake.” Weird day here as we celebrate the life of a man who never set foot on this content – well, 28 states and DC do. Will Philly celebrate with champagne? We’ll see. For now, let’s take a look at … Continue reading

CFB Preview, Week 6: Tebow back?

Will he play, or will he be smart. Referencing Tim Tebow of course. For those of you who don’t watch sports television (honestly, often it’s good to avoid listening if you have any experience in athletics), Steve Young today talked about the aftereffects of a concussion. Young ought to know a little something about this. … Continue reading

Saturday Wrapup

Da U. Say what you want about the extensive coverage, here and everywhere else, given to a team that probably does not have real national championship hopes, but it’s Miami. Come on. How do you not get excited about them? Jacory Harris threw interceptions on the ‘Canes first two drives, then came back to complete … Continue reading

CFB Preview: Who else has an NC shot?

Florida? Off. Texas? Bye week. With the nearly unanimous top two teams taking the week off, the nation gets a chance to see who else has a chance to work their way back to the top. The names are familiar. The huge non-conference matchup at Da U see Oklahoma come to town, sans Sam Bradford. … Continue reading

Saturday Roundup: Does anybody want it?

Going back to look at notes from yesterday, one thing became clear: more teams hurt themselves yesterday than helped. The ACC is no longer leaderless, but will remain national championship-less. As will the Big Ten. And Pac-10. Speaking of the Pac-10, the league is in disarray. It may be as competitive as it has been … Continue reading

CFB Preview: Week 4

Already? This is going way to fast. But at the same time it’s getting even more fun. Some programs are going to have to start questioning their scheduling practices if, after beating up patsies, they are going to show their true colors and lose in conference. Not USC. They play tough. That was more a … Continue reading

Conference Previews: Pac-10

USC and everybody else. Across America the perception of the Pac-10 is the Pete Carroll show in L.A. and no other real teams of consequence. A couple of years ago LSU’s Les Miles said as much when he joked that the Trojans will play “knock down drag outs” with Stanford, Washington and Oregon State on … Continue reading
