SCS.comTHE WAIT IS OVER, CFB RETURNS TONIGHT
August 31, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Tonight at 5:00 PM central, the best sport in America returns. The sport where every game is a playoff game all season long, the sport where passions are high and bragging rights for the whole year are on the line every week. Yes, college football is back! Boston College and Central Michigan get a full hour head start, but fifteen other games will fill the night later on. If you have a chance to experience an opening....[MORE]

SCS.comNCAA FOOTBALL: THE GREATEST GAME GOING
August 29, 2006
By Ethan, SCS.com Staff Writer
What makes college football so great? Is it watching a 4th year sousaphone player dot the "I" in front of 105,000 screaming Buckeye fans in Columbus, Ohio? Or is it Nebraska fans applauding the opposition for a game well played in Lincoln? Maybe it's the glamour and visibility schools like USC and Notre Dame bring to the sport for a nationwide audience. Or it might be the SEC showing the world what passion for the sport....[MORE]

SCS.comINTRO: THE 'ULTIMATE FOOTBALL PROJECT'
August 28, 2006
By Joel, SCS.com Staff Writer
There are 119 Division I football stadiums. I plan on attending a game at all of them. So far, Iíve seen games at four of them. At a rate of five stadiums per year, I can visit them all in 23 years. By 2029, the project should be complete. The idea to do this came to me in 2005 while I was living in Orlando, Florida. I was 650 miles away from my team, the Alabama Crimson Tide, and I was beginning to miss the....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS BREAK: HEY, DON'T FORGET THESE GUYS!
August 25, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
Division-I transfers. The forgotten ones. Transfers are often overlooked when analyzing a team's prospects for the upcoming season. Everyone notices the new freshman recruits, but some people fail to remember about the transfers that had to sit out last season. However, transfers often have more of an immediate impact than freshmen as a result of the experience that they have. Just look at last season. Marco Killingsworth....[MORE]

SCS.comTEN BIGGEST GAMES OF SEPTEMBER
August 23, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Sure, no national championship - nor any conference championship, for that matter - is going to be determined in the first month of the season, but there's no arguing that month one's play will go a long way in determining who is in the running for both titles come the stretch run. Great non-conference battles highlight this list of the top ten games of September, though it's not too early for some early league play....[MORE]

SCS.comRANKING AMERICA'S TOP TEN PROGRAMS
August 21, 2006
By Eddie, SCS.com Staff Writer
When you think about the list of schools that excel in all three of the majors sports (baseball, basketball, and football), only a little more than a handful of universities can claim that elite status. With that thought in mind, I decided to do a little digging and find out who really is worthy of being named among the best programs in America. That research done, I've ranked the best of the best according to their results since....[MORE]

SCS.comTOP 10 POTENTIALLY HUGE UPSETS IN SEPT.
August 18, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
With the beginning of the BCS several years back, many of the big-name schools have begun to realize the importance of playing a quality non-conference schedule. While some are still reluctant to line up opponents from other BCS conferences, many do set up matchups with teams from the non-BCS leagues who are often just as dangerous. As I glanced over the September schedule, a number of these....[MORE]

SCS.comLOOKING TO TURN IT AROUND IN 2006
August 16, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Guest Writer
Every season in college football, there are teams that build upon the struggles of the prior season and turn the fortunes of the program around. The recipe for these teams normally consists of a roster that returns a great deal of experience and having a favorable schedule that sets the table for a major turnaround. Let's take a look at six teams that were under .500 in 2005, but who I think are poised to have break-out....[MORE]

SCS.comSCS.COM'S RELEASES PRESEASON FAB 15
August 14, 2006
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
The poll rankings have become an increasingly hot topic since the inception of the BCS, and little is expected to change this fall. Though the first set of championship rankings won't be released until October, the preseason edition of a number of the polls used in determining the BCS rankings have already been released to the public. With that in mind, the SCS.com college football staff has come together to compile our....[MORE]

SCS.comSCS.COM'S PRESEASON BOWL PROJECTIONS
August 11, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
We've spent the last month or so previewing each and every team from around the country, so now it's time to make postseason reservations for those squads based on our predictions. The 2006 bowl season will feature a record 31 games, meaning 62 teams (over half of those playing Division I football) are slated for postseason play this winter. Just six wins are required for those playing twelve games this fall, so even with....[MORE]

SCS.comA BREAK FROM THE GRIDIRON: HOOPS NEWS
August 10, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
College football season is nearly upon us. Campuses are putting the final touches on classroom upgrades, striping parking lots, and bookstore shelves are filling up, eager to soak up hundreds of dollars from each and every returning student. The pop of helmets and pads can be heard while strolling past stadiums around the country. In this writer's humble opinion, this all serves as the first pangs of the coming hoops season....[MORE]

SCS.comPRESEASON ALL-AMERICA SQAUDS REVEALED
August 9, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
We've previewed each of the individual conferences and told you who the top players are in each, but who are the best athletes in the country? The SCS.com staff has come together in recent weeks to compile a list of exactly 52 college football players who will represent this fall's Preseason First and Second Team All-America squads. Eight of the NCAA's eleven conferences are represented, as are thirty-four different teams....[MORE]

SCS.comCFB PREVIEW 2006: THE SEC
August 7, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The SEC seems as up-for-grabs as its ever been before, on both sides of the conference. Florida is a popular pick in the East, though it's hard to overlook Tennessee even after the Vols losing season last fall. Georgia is always near the top, but the Dawgs have to replace QB D.J. Shockley and others. And don't forget about Steve Spurrier and the Gamecocks lurking in the shadows. USC won seven games a season ago....[MORE]

SCS.comGRIDIRON ELITE HOPING TO FULFILL DREAMS
August 4, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Heisman Trophy has long been a symbol of college greatness and more often than not, a symbol of professional anonymity. As the 2006 season approaches, we begin to analyze the nation's top players and pick our preseason favorites for the sport's greatest honor. Winning the Heisman guarantees a player not only a little extra money in the NFL Draft (this does not include Jason White), but also a place in history....[MORE]

SCS.comCFB PREVIEW 2006: THE ACC
August 2, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Florida State and Miami look to be the early favorites in their respective divisions this fall, though a number of other teams are certainly capable of making a championship run if things fall into place. In the Atlantic, Boston College is always a consistent squad, while NC State and Clemson will be looking to take a step forward this fall and contend for the league title. Over on the Coastal side of the conference, Georgia Tech....[MORE]
