SCS.comONE ON ONE WITH MICHAEL AMBORT
January 31, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Lamar University catcher Michael Ambort was kind enough to take time for a SCS.com exclusive interview a short time ago. The junior was an all-state performer on the diamond in high school and opted to attend college even after being selected in the 2003 MLB Draft. He tied for the team lead in homeruns his freshman season and then set the school record for round-trippers last spring on his way to earning Southland Conference....[MORE]

January 29, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
What a week ahead. The calendar flips to the second month of the year, football fans are anxiously awaiting National Signing Day on Wednesday, and the Super Bowl is sure to be the topic of conversation all around the country in the days to come. At the same time, though, it's a huge week in college basketball. League leaders will face tough challegnes over the next few days, like on Tuesday when Illinois takes on Wisconsin and....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: THE WEEKEND AHEAD
January 27, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Another huge weekend of college hoops is ahead, and it's becoming judgement time for many teams all around the country. Louisville got a big mid-week home win over Cincinnati, but can the Cards get the job done on the road at Rutgers? Arizona seems to have gotten things back on track, but can they go into North Carolina and come out with a victory? Michigan came to play against in-state rival Michigan State, but will the....[MORE]

SCS.comCONFERENCE CALL TO POST
January 26, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
With thirty-one Division I conferences, following the races for the regular season crowns can be a tad harrowing. Never fear. Read on for a heads up on some interesting conferences races. But, not all races are created equal. Some are runaways, some have tremendous tales of resurrection from poor starts, and some have nip-and-tuck affairs right down to the final conference game. As a native Kentuckian, one....[MORE]

SCS.comGREEN WAVE BASEBALL STILL ROLLING STRONG
January 26, 2006
By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast in August of 2005 like no other storm in history. No one, no place, and no team was spared from her wrath. The coasts of Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana were destroyed. The city of New Orleans felt the brunt of Katrina's unbiased fury. Hundreds of thousands of the Crescent City's residents were displaced by the storm, and many lost their lives. The Tulane baseball team escaped the....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE MAKING OF A CHAMPION
January 25, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
What does it take to become a national champion? An upperclassman carrying the team? Ask Syracuse and Carmelo Anthony about that. Senior leadership? Yeah, the Rashad McCants, Raymond Felton, and Sean May trio was chock full of seniors. A hot streak heading into the tourney? Both Syracuse and UNC lost in their conference tournament in convincing fashion, and Connecticut was still working out the kinks in late....[MORE]

SCS.comSOUTH'S HOTTEST RIVALRIES HEATING BACK UP
January 25, 2006
By Ed, SCS.com Staff Writer
After the college bowl season is over, southern college sports fans generally fall into one of 3 molds: (1) The fan that tolerates basketball but considers National Signing Day for football to be Christmas two months later, (2) The diehard college basketball fan that attends home games even when Kentucky, Duke, UNC, or Florida are not in town, or (3) The fan that believes the next two and a half months is impossible to get....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: THE WEEK AHEAD
January 22, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The Super Bowl matchup is set, but that game won't be played for two weeks, meaning the focus of the sports nation can turn towards college hoops throughout the coming week. It's a big next few days in the Big Ten as Indiana and Iowa get together Tuesday before in-state rivals Michigan State and Michigan meet in Ann Arbor on Wednesday. And don't look now, but there's another huge matchup in the Missouri Valley this week....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: THE WEEKEND AHEAD
January 20, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Though just January and the early part of the conference schedules, it's already getting crunch time for a number of squads all around the country. Teams like Louisville, who hosts Connecticut on Saturday, Kansas, welcoming in Nebraska, and Arkansas, paying a visit to Auburn, all desperately need to pick up big conference wins this weekend if they want to avoid falling even farther behind in their respective conference....[MORE]

By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
Quick! What does this list of teams have in common: Kentucky, Kansas, Louisville, Oklahoma, and Stanford? Under normal circumstances, one might say: (1) "They are all ranked in the top 10," (2) "Potential Final Four teams," (3) "Teams with top-notch coaches," (4) "Winners of their respective conferences," or (5) "The short list of next year's top recruit." All would be good guesses in most years. This year, the answer....[MORE]

SCS.comINJURIES AFFECTING NCAA HOPES
January 18, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
With conference play heating up and teams looking towards the NCAA Tournament, the Selection Committee and their criteria begin to come up in discussion when talking about seedings and bubble teams. One of the main points that is bound to be argued is the effect that injuries have had on various teams. National title contenders, as well as teams just looking to get into the Big Dance, have been hit by the injury bug on more....[MORE]

January 15, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Surprises were plentiful this past weekend, and as teams begin to separate themselves in the coming weeks, it will be interesting to watch what squads continue to make noise and which ones fall to the wayside. While there is plenty of big-time conference action on the schedule again this week, including Connecticut's road trip to Syracuse and Illinois' visit to Indiana, we advise you keep an eye on at least a pair of non-conference....[MORE]

SCS.comGOOD HOOPS BEYOND TV LAND
January 13, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
Gonzaga. Bucknell. Nevada. Northern Iowa. These names have been on the lips of many a college basketball expert for most of the season. Many reveled in Bucknell's so-called "upset" of Kansas last year. It is ironic that if the two played now, just nine months later, Kansas beating Bucknell would be considered the upset. The truth is that Bucknell was a fine basketball team last year, and they are even better this year....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: THE WEEKEND AHEAD
January 13, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
While the big-time non-conference battles are not yet complete, now is the time of year when conference play really gets rolling. An early Saturday afternoon showdown between Villanova and Texas may be the biggest game of the weekend, but it's a monstrous couple days in the Big Ten as well. Michigan and Illinois meet Saturday before a huge matchup of Michigan State and Ohio State takes place on the campus of the....[MORE]

January 8, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Conference play is now officially underway all across the country, and the first full week of action did not fail to disappoint. In addition to a few left over non-conference battles like Texas's win at Memphis, there was plenty of great league action as well. Six of SCS.com's top eight ranked teams lost at least once this week, the lone exceptions being Duke and Florida. Top-ranked Connecticut fell on the road at Marquette....[MORE]

Conference action heated up in leagues like the Big East and Big Ten earlier this week, and now things will get rolling in others like the Big XII and the SEC over the weekend. Among the top games of the coming weekend is the in-state showdown between NC State and North Carolina in Chapel Hill as well as unbeaten Ohio State's trip to Indiana. Both of those games will be played on Saturday. West Virginia will make a....[MORE]

By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
Why is it that when an American refers to "the South" we know immediately that they are not referring to New Mexico, Arizona, west Texas, or even Miami, Florida? No, the South is more than a geographical region in the United States. It is a culture, an identity, and arguably an ethnic group. Where is the South exactly? How does one know if they are in it? Well, John Shelton Reed, professor of sociology....[MORE]

Teams that entered the poll since the completion of the regular season include Oklahoma, Boston College, and Florida....[MORE]

SCS.comBREAKING DOWN BIG LEAGUE PLAY
January 4, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
Conference play in the "Big Six" conferences started up this past week with a bang, as the Pac-10 teams each played a pair of games. California picked up a road sweep of UCLA and USC, while Arizona went to the state of Washington and pulled off two victories, including an excellent win over the Huskies. The rest of the conferences will begin this week. Last time, I looked at some of the mid-major conferences and broke down....[MORE]

January 3, 2006
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
This year's Rose Bowl, the BCS championship game, features the only two undefeated college football teams in America. The USC Trojans are 12-0 and won each game by an average of more than four touchdowns. The Texas Longhorns are also 12-0 and won each of their contests this fall by an average of more than five touchdowns. The two offenses are ranked numbers one and two in the country and are the only two....[MORE]

January 2, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Some call this the biggest mismatch of the BCS this year, but don't think for a second that this matchup is not intriguing. Bobby Bowden and Joe Paterno are the best long-term coaches in the history of football according to career victories. Paterno was left for dead as far as coaching is concerned after five bad years, but his return to glory and an AP Coach of the Year award has swept the nation. While Florida State did a....[MORE]

It's 2006 now, and by the time this week is over, basically every team in America will have at least one conference game under its belt. Many conferences have gotten their league action underway already, and this past weekend saw a pair of upsets out west in the Pac-10. After each won last Thursday, both UCLA and Washington went down on Saturday, losing to California and Arizona, respectively. Another west coast upset....[MORE]

By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Though neither the Georgia Bulldogs nor the West Virginia Mountaineers were supposed to make BCS appearances this season, each comes in as a conference champion, Mark Richt's squad out of the SEC and Rich Rodriquez's team from the Big East. After starting the season 7-0, UGA lost two straight to Florida and Auburn before ending the season with three consecutive victories, including a SEC title game romp over LSU....[MORE]
