SCS.com2008 PRESEASON FAB 40: #31-40
January 31, 2008
By Jimmy, SCS.com Staff Writer
With the start of the college baseball season only a few weeks away, preparations for the upcoming season are kicking into full gear. While some teams come into the season ranked in the preseason Top 25, other squads see themselves just outside the Top 25. But the situation for these teams is simple. If players who arenít expected to contribute much step up and become key parts of their teams and big time players....[MORE]

SCS.comA NEW-LOOK NCAA BASKETBALL BUBBLE
January 29, 2008
By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
Letís all take the time to do some quick math. There are 65 teams that will make the 2008 Menís NCAA Basketball Tournament. Of those 65 teams, 31 of them will be the winners of all the conference tournaments (except for the Ivy League, where the automatic bid goes to the winner of the regular season). This means we now have 34 at-large bids to give away. Of those 34, letís assume that 21 teams would definitely make the....[MORE]

SCS.comWILL KANSAS' STREAK LIVE ON?
January 28, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Itís a big week in the Big 12, as the schedule features two intra-state matchups, one in Kansas (KU and KSU) and the other taking place in Texas (UT and A&M), but thereís also a big game to keep an eye on in the Colonial Athletic Conference between VCU and George Mason. Indiana and Wisconsin face off in the Big 10, and a lot will be decided in the Pac-10 conference this week as well. Just what any hoops fan would....[MORE]

SCS.comZAGS, TIGERS HIGHLIGHT WEEKEND OFFERING
January 25, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
As the top ranked team in the nation, Memphis has survived the toughest part of its season: the non-conference. The C-USA offers little resistance to the Tigers, which is why coach John Calipari went out and scheduled games like this against Gonzaga and Tennessee in February. Now, the Tigers can face some real competition before the NCAA tournament. Gonzaga is in the same situation as Memphis, but Mark Few doesnít have quite....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PRESEASON FAB 40: THOSE THAT MISSED
January 24, 2008
By Tucker, SCS.com Guest Writer
As 2008 rolls in, so does college baseball, and teams are getting ready for the long season ahead. Some teams come in highly touted and others seem like they donít have a prayer, but the following squads are on the brink of success but just missed out on earning a ranking among the SCS.com Preseason Top 40, as voted on by the staff. These teams have all the talent essential to contend, but theyíre likely to fall a bit short....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG EAST IS WIDE OPEN FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
January 23, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
After a few weeks of conference play, things are starting to take shape in most conferences. While uncertainty still exists, the top of each conference seems to be firmly set. Kansas is the frontrunner for the Big 12 crown and North Carolina will fight Duke for the ACC. In the Big 10, Wisconsin has joined Indiana and Michigan State as the elite teams in the conference, and Tennessee is clearly the class of the SEC. And in the Pac-10....[MORE]

SCS.comWANTED: 1 PERFECTLY FITTING GLASS SLIPPER
January 22, 2008
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
March Madness has long been known for dramatic buzzer beaters, memorable upsets, and crushing defeats. Guys named Tyus go coast to coast and become heroes for several hours as fans throughout the country breathe a sigh of relief and put that red pen away, the same pen that comes out a few hours later to get some heavy work as some guy named Bryce stakes his claim in March Madness history with a play....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK'S TOP GAME IS AN A-10 SHOWDOWN
January 21, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
This past weekend lacked that marquee matchup that hoops fans attempt to plan their days around. Unfortunately, this week is not a whole lot better, even though we are well into the conference schedule. There is, however, one big game to keep an eye on in the Atlantic 10 conference, that contest pitting Dayton against Xavier. And of course, within each major conference there are some moderately important games....[MORE]

SCS.comAN EARLY LOOK AT COLLEGE FOOTBALL 2008
January 19, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Less than a month ago, Louisiana State beat Ohio State 38-24 to win their 2nd BCS national championship. Since then I have been following recruiting and early draft entries. The entries have been made and signing day, February 6th, is near. So what should a rabid college football fan that lives and breathes for the game do until August? Make outrageously early projections that I may or may not standby seven months from....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEKEND'S SLATE LACKS MONSTER MATCHUP
January 18, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Somehow, the weekendís only game featuring two ranked opponents is Clemson/Duke, and even Clemson is barely in the polls at 24th. For this reason, there is no Game of the Weekend, but there is still plenty to look forward to. From a freshman battle of Jordan vs. Beasley in Texas A&M and Kansas State, to one of the nationís oldest rivalries, as well as a great deal of Big East and Pac-10 action, this weekend offers a lot....[MORE]

SCS.comA LOOK AT THE OFFENSIVE IMPACT PLAYERS
January 16, 2008
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
With college hoops a couple of weeks into conference play, it is a good time to start taking a look at which players have had the biggest impacts for their teams. Clearly there are plenty of ways for athletes to impact things on the floor, be it a mental boost, providing energy off the bunch, or putting up big numbers. In this particular case we will be analyzing some of the top players under the guise of what percentage of their....[MORE]

SCS.comMID-SEASON BUBBLE AND CONFERENCE UPDATE
January 15, 2008
By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
The first half of this NCAA Basketball season has been full of different questions. What mid-major programs will be invited to the NCAA Tournament? Which team is number one? Who is the top freshman? But, the question that seems to be on the mind of every fan is: Is my team IN, or OUT of the NCAA Tournament? It may only be mid-Januray, but its never too early to start talking about "Bubble Teams"....[MORE]

SCS.comSEC, BIG EAST BATTLES HIGHLIGHT WEEK
January 14, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
The road was not kind to some of the countryís top teams last week. Washington State didnít have any fun in Los Angeles as they fell behind early and could not recover against UCLA. Vanderbilt kept some pressure off Billy Gillispie for a few days at least, losing at Rupp Arena, and that wasnít all. Texas rolled over in Columbia, Missouri after the Tigersí hot-shooting second half, and Michigan State pulled a ....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEKEND TO BUILD ON EXCITING WEEK
January 11, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
So now youíve had a taste of conference play. There have been upsets (DePaul knocks off Villanova), near upsets (Ellington and UNC beat Clemson at the buzzer, Purdue just three points from Michigan State upset), and outstanding basketball games (Mississippi takes Tennessee to the wire, Stanford beating USC in a test of physicality). Luckily for you and me, weíve still got two months left of this stuff. A full slate of....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE AWARD FOR THE WORST TEAM GOES TO...
January 10, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
The nominees sit anxiously at their practice facilities, awaiting the news. They know it could be them. They just hope itís not. Could they be the team that earned the honor of SouthernCollegeSports.comís Worst Team award? The tension is close to that of Selection Sunday for a bubble team. Now, for some details on this unknown award. First, the team has to come from one of the six ďBCSĒ conferences. Itís always fun to....[MORE]

SCS.comFIVE TEAMS YOU SHOULDN'T SLEEP ON JUST YET
January 9, 2008
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
There is very little doubt that most eyes will be focused on Chapel Hill, Memphis, and Lawrence for the majority of the season, but that is what makes March Madness special. A second chance is given to teams who, well let us just say, may not have met their preseason expectations. Fans have short memories; a ten loss season can easily be forgotten with a three game win streak and a trip to the Elite Eight. When the....[MORE]

SCS.comTIGERS, DAWGS LEAD THE WAY IN FINAL FAB 15
January 8, 2008
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
A pair of SEC squads top the Postseason Fab 15 as BCS national champion LSU comes in at number one, while Sugar Bowl winner Georgia slides in at number two. Southern Cal follows at three before Missouri and West Virginia, who both had huge bowl wins after late-season losses, round out the top five. BCS runner-up Ohio State is sixth, while Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Tennessee complete the top ten. ACC rivals....[MORE]

SCS.comTEAMS LOOK TO START FAST IN LEAGUE PLAY
January 7, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
When college footballís national championship concludes Monday night, the 2007 season will finally come to an end, which is a bit of a depressing thought. After all, for the past four months, college football has been a staple of our Saturdays. The good news is that even though football may be over, college basketball now enters the best part of the entire season. Conference play begins in full force this week, with games....[MORE]

SCS.comPREVIEW: BCS NATIONAL TITLE GAME
January 4, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
In a season of what seemed like weekly changes at the head of the national rankings, the survivors remaining atop the BCS standings are the 11-1 Ohio State Buckeyes and the 11-2 Louisiana State Tigers. Both teams appeared to have lost their chance at the national title with losses in November when LSU fell in triple overtime to Arkansas in their regular season finale while Ohio State was tripped up by Illinois in their....[MORE]

SCS.comSCS.COM BOWL PREVIEW SERIES: PART XI
January 3, 2008
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
The four "named" BCS bowl games are behind us, and while the national championship game on Monday night - featuring LSU and Ohio State - is garnering much of the nation's attention, there are a pair of remaining bowl games to be played before the huge showdown in New Orleans. The first, the International Bowl, features one of the nation's top running backs in Ray Rice as Rutgers goes up against Ball State. After that contest....[MORE]

SCS.comBCS BOWL PREVIEW SERIES: FIESTA & ORANGE
January 1, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
This slate of BCS bowls has been dubbed "the worst since the BCS was instated." I disagree. West Virginia and Oklahoma will play in the Fiesta Bowl, and if you combine those teams' points per game average, the Fiesta Bowl should have at least 90 points scored in it. Of course, those two defenses will not let that happen. Kansas and Virginia Tech, two teams who were long shots to make the BCS, will play in the Orange Bowl....[MORE]
