SCS.comSUPER BOWL MEANS LIGHT HOOPS MENU
January 30, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
I’ll just be completely honest with you here. This isn’t a great weekend of college basketball. The Super Bowl isn’t until Sunday afternoon, but for some reason even Saturday’s slate is relatively boring. Sure, the Big East has some compelling games, and there are some critical bubble games. But there wasn’t a whole lot to work with this week, so I skipped the Game of the Week and got right into our must-see match-ups....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG TEN APPEARS SURPRISINGLY STRONG
January 28, 2009
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
According to the RPI, the all empowered rating system that plays a giant role in determining the fate of teams in regards to admission for the NCAA Tournament and their eventual seed. This same rating also ranks the conferences as a whole; currently the Big Ten is second. You read that right, second, just behind the Atlantic Coast Conference and its slew of ranked teams. Obviously they are ranked ahead of the Big East....[MORE]

SCS.comACC UP FOR GRABS AS DUKE, WAKE MEET
January 26, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
We’re going to try a different format today. It may look the same at first—I haven’t changed the Game of the Week—but I’ve tried to add a little more spice to it. The main difference this week will be the number of games previewed. I’ve added more categories, more games and more predictions, which will allow me to prove my basketball knowledge (and lack thereof) even more every week. If you’re a basketball fan....[MORE]

SCS.comANOTHER WEEKEND, ANOTHER 'BIG' EAST GAME
January 23, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
With no NFL this week, college basketball took advantage of the open Sunday. Louisville and Syracuse will do battle that day, and other games include Virginia Tech/Miami, Pitt/West Virginia and Michigan State/Ohio State. Of course, if you’re like me, you’ll be glued to the TV on both days. Follow my lead and do the same. Syracuse just didn’t look like itself last Monday in 78-60 loss at Pittsburgh. Normally an exceptional....[MORE]

SCS.comBLUEGRASS STATE LOOKING STRONG EARLY ON
January 20, 2009
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
I am going to be completely honest with you, heading into the season and even more so a few weeks into the season, I was under the impression that both Kentucky and Louisville were overrated and would be wildly inconsistent this season. Now I am going to eat a personal serving of crow and jump on the bandwagon for both of these teams. Despite still having question marks, more than likely both will be factors in March....[MORE]

SCS.comNO NFL MEANS MORE COLLEGE HOOPS
January 19, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
I love NFL football just as much as the next guy, and yesterday’s conference championship games were quality entertainment. I’m still not sure if Willis McGahee is alive or not. It’s hard to tell after such a gruesome hit, something you will never see in a college hoops game. So even though it’s a little upsetting that we’ve still got two weeks until the Super Bowl—two weeks without any football at all—that just means that college....[MORE]

SCS.comSLATE INCLUDES NON-CONFERENCE POWERS
January 16, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
It’s January 16th, and Georgetown and Duke have decided to put conference play on hold for each other. What, do they think they’re better than everyone else? Realistically, yes. Duke and Georgetown are two of the most historic programs in college basketball history, and Saturday’s nationally televised game on CBS will likely draw the highest ratings of the day. Of course, Wake Forest/Clemson—the battle of the....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG EAST THE DOMINANT HOOPS LEAGUE?
January 15, 2009
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
It’s very realistic to think the Big East conference this season could be remembered as the best conference in the history of college basketball. It has already placed an unheard of nine teams in the top 25 in the eighth week of the season in both the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today polls, while also fittingly boasting the country’s top team in undefeated Pittsburgh, one of only three unbeatens remaining in the country....[MORE]

SCS.comSLEEPERS EMERGE AS LEAGUE PLAY BEGINS
January 13, 2009
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
It is only January and teams are still trying to find themselves, so needless to say all the games up to this point may not be quite as meaningful as the ones from this moment forward. However, for fans, especially fans of teams who find themselves on the bubble annually need each and every win. Even the November wins in Hawaii and Puerto Rico can be the ones that push our teams over the edge in March. Here are four teams....[MORE]

SCS.comRED RIVER RIVALRY HAS HUGE IMPLICATIONS
January 12, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
I think last night I had an epiphany, if you want to call it that. After watching Wake Forest/North Carolina and USC/UCLA on Fox Sports Net, I realized I had just seen two of the better basketball games of the entire season. It was almost a perfect doubleheader. The first game in Winston-Salem featured some of the most gifted athletes in college basketball. Wake and UNC went back and forth, from fastbreak....[MORE]

SCS.comTEBOW, GATORS TOP FINAL SCS.COM FAB 15
January 11, 2009
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
fter knocking off Oklahoma in the BCS Championship Game this past Thursday, the Florida Gators earned three of the staff's five first place votes and top the final edition of the 2008 SCS.com College Football Fab 15. Utah, who went unbeaten this season, earned a first place vote of their own and finished second, while Southern Cal claimed the fifth and final top vote and came in third. Big XII rivals Texas and Oklahoma....[MORE]

SCS.comTOUGH WEEKEND TASK FOR VULNERABLE HEELS
January 9, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
There was a question as to whether or not North Carolina would even lose a game this season. Boston College put an end to that talk (and then promptly lost at home to Harvard on Wednesday), and there’s a chance the Heels could lose again in Winston-Salem this weekend against Wake Forest in the “Game of the Week.” We’ll have to wait until Sunday night for that tip-off, but in the meantime, there are several important Big East....[MORE]

SCS.comPREVIEW: BCS CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
January 6, 2009
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
While the BCS has been an undisputed source of a national champion for 10 years, this year is the third time the BCS Championship is a separate game at a location of one of the four BCS bowl games. This season Miami welcomes the two worst teams in the BCS on New Year's Day in Cincinnati and Virginia Tech, but then the top two teams in the country in this game. While there may be some controversy about the inclusion of....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG EAST BATTLE, CURRY AT DUKE, A REMATCH
January 5, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
If the BCS bowls just aren’t doing it for you, college hoops has you covered. Though I am admittedly growing tired of writing about the Big East week after week, the Notre Dame/Georgetown game deserves “Game of the Week” honors with both teams hoping to avenge losses from last week. A few days later, Stephen Curry looks to light up Cameron Indoor Stadium and Tennessee gets to play Gonzaga again after losing....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL PREVIEW - FIESTA
January 4, 2009
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The 38th edition of the Fiesta Bowl features a Big Twelve and Big Ten match-up as the Ohio State Buckeyes meet the Texas Longhorns. This will be the third match-up in four years between these two powerhouse programs with both teams earning a win on the road, Texas in 2005 and Ohio State in 2006. What makes this match-up even more enticing is the fact that these two programs rank in the top five all-time in wins....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL WEEK DIARY: MIZZOU AT THE ALAMO
January 3, 2009
By Michael, SCS.com Staff Writer
Monday was reserved for luggage drop off and was the day we finished packing both the semi-truck and the other Ryder truck we rented to help haul luggage down to San Antonio. The day started at 6 am and we had our last practice in Columbia before leaving for our week in the Alamo City. After practice we loaded luggage for nearly two hours. For bowl trips, anyone who is anyone in the athletic department travels to the....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL PREVIEW SERIES - PART XII
January 2, 2009
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
How do I know that college football has too many bowl games? Because there are three bowl games involving mid-majors and average BCS schools in non-BCS bowl games. Why these games cannot be played in late December is beyond me. However, the four mid-major schools that are playing in these four bowl games are very deserving. East Carolina, Buffalo, Ball State, and Tulsa all had their moment in the sun....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL PREVIEW - SUGAR
January 1, 2009
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Over the years of the BCS, the Sugar Bowl has seen its fair share of great matchups. Having a tie-in with the consistent best conference in college football helps quite a bit. Even with the SEC Champion heading to the BCS Championship for the third straight year, New Orleans will be hosting a SEC team for the ninth straight year. The SEC teams have been dominant, going 6-2 over that stretch, including last year's blowout of....[MORE]
