Saturday scores, stories

Call it the day the Big Ten and Pac-10 imploded. Stanford just finished up dropped 51 points on Oregon in a game that just made the top of the conference a jumbled mess. Every team now has at least one loss, with Arizona and Oregon sitting at the top with one each. Arizona had the … Continue reading

Saturday roundup

Somewhat of an off-weekend here at JBJ, since one of us was in flight most of the time. Currently still in flight, from Seattle to Atlanta. So, since AirTran made it so easy to steal the internet, let’s delve into the weekend that was, along with a little whiskey-coke and some pretzels. The only way … 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

The 10th Inning: Sucker Punched

Well that was fun. South Carolina and North Carolina State played an ACC football game – yes, SC is in the SEC, we think. Tim Lincecum is out-dueled by Pedro Martinez and LeGarrette Blount better not make travel plans through Idaho anytime soon, or ever for that matter. TGIF and you’re in the 10th Inning. … Continue reading

Thursday Picks

Just three games to pick tonight, in reverse order of importance. Still, for two teams this could be the season. South Carolina @ NC State: Can Steve Spurrier stay off the hot seat? NC State is better than in the past and SC will need to find a way to score some points when they … Continue reading

The 10th Inning – Gameday

Oregon is in Boise to kick off the 2009 college football season with a BCS buster between two ranked teams, Josh Beckett is just tossing BP up there again and heroism on a school bus in Mississippi start the morning.

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
