BCS Bowl Preview: Orange Bowl

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

(4) Stanford (11-1) vs. (13) Virginia Tech (11-2) (+3.5) "Oxymoron" seems to be the word to describe this game. It's going to be a tight, nip-and-tuck, defensive affair but at the same time there will be big plays sprinkled in there by both teams. That doesn't make sense on the surface ...

BCS Bowl Preview: Fiesta Bowl

Friday, December 31st, 2010

Connecticut (8-4) vs. (7) Oklahoma (11-2) (-17) Nice little gift here for Oklahoma since their history in BCS games isn't so pretty. But wait, they were favored against West Virginia too! Yeah, that WVU team had Steve Slaton and Pat White. There's not one offensive skill player on UConn that would ...

BCS Bowl Preview: Rose Bowl

Friday, December 31st, 2010

(5) Wisconsin (11-1) vs. (3) Texas Christian (12-0) (-3) I love how so many previews for this game are making Wisconsin look like a king-hell offensive juggernaut that will lay waste to TCU's defense and then burn Fort Worth to the ground just to make a point. The Badgers ran the ...

Et tu, Nevada?

Saturday, November 27th, 2010

How, exactly, did that happen? Boise State, arguably the best team in all of college football, the most complete, well-rounded squad we've seen all year, utterly fell apart in Reno like a drunken gambler who couldn't afford to play in Vegas. Up 24-7 after the half, and with a chance ...

Gordon Gee Is An Idiot And A Traitor

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Is anyone shocked that the president of Ohio State University doesn't really want to change the current BCS bowl system in college football? That's the same system that got his university into the national title game in 2007 and made like $10 million for the Big Ten because it got ...

Pat Hill Thinks BCS Teams Are Sissies

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

Ivan Maisel's post-mortem on the Boise/Fresno game says it all. Well, more like he lets Fresno State head coach Pat Hill say it all. If anyone had any doubt about Boise State's national championship credentials, just ask the Bulldogs' coach, whose players were at the no-fun end of a 51-0 ...

Enjoy It While It Lasts, Auburn Fans

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

There are two things to take away from Auburn's 49-31 defeat of Georgia Saturday night: 1) If Cam Newton doesn't, Auburn's sneaky-bad defense is what is going to cost them the national championship. We already kind of knew that since they've been giving up a ton of points all season. But 31 ...

BCS Conspiracy Theory of the Week: Why TCU-Utah Wasn’t On CBS

Sunday, November 7th, 2010

Much was made of the TCU/Utah game this week. After all, it is possibly the only time top five teams are going to match up for the rest of the season, and it was a game that would eliminate one non-AQ school from a shot at the BCS altogether. But one ...
