SCS.comCAN YOU REALLY GET FAT ON CUPCAKES?
August 30, 2008
By Tom, SCS.com Staff Writer
With the big boys of college football feasting on the less fortunate this week, are you guaranteed your big dogs will rack up the points? I say no. The first two weeks of the season really even things out for the expert fantasy players and the beginners. For every Alabama vs. Clemson, there is three Texas vs. Florida Atlantic. If your running back is playing against a nasty defense, and you know he will struggle for every yard....[MORE]

SCS.comUNKNOWN, UNDER-APPRECIATED, & INVALUABLE
August 29, 2008
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Throughout the upcoming season, Michael Spencer, a student at the University of Missouri, will be working with the Tiger football team in the equipment room during the week, traveling with the equipment staff to all games, and also working in the Tiger Sports Radio Network broadcasting booth on game day. Each week, Michael will be giving SCS.com readers a behind-the-scenes look into his job with the sixth-ranked Tiger....[MORE]

SCS.comACC/SEC CLASH SETS THE STAGE IN WEEK ONE
August 27, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The initial week of the season always has its share of lopsided matchups, and this year is no exception, but there are also numerous cross-sectional battles that will make for an interesting week one of action. The season kicks off on Thursday night and features games all the way through the Labor Day weekend, capped off with Tennessee traveling to UCLA on Monday night. The national spotlight game of the week is....[MORE]

SCS.com2008: PRELUDE TO A THREE-QUEL?
August 26, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Welcome back sports fans to another school year, which means the pinnacle of sports college football returns. On Thursday night at 7 PM, four Mid-American Conference teams will host games to open the biggest single-elimination tournament in sports (unless we go back to 2007 where it was more like triple elimination). From Thursday until Monday night, there are games every day to fill the Labor Day weekend....[MORE]

SCS.comWIN YOUR FANTASY LEAGUE ON DRAFT DAY
August 25, 2008
By Tom, SCS.com Staff Writer
Follow some of these simple strategies, and you will leave your draft feeling like the rest of the season is just a formality. In my league, running backs seem to go early in the draft because of the points awarded for running touchdowns. However, you cannot win your league without a good to great quarterback. I’m convinced of that. If you’re picking in the one through five spots, you cannot pass up a dual threat QB like....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PREVIEW: FAB 15
August 22, 2008
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
There is no clear-cut number one team as we look towards the start of the 2008 college football season in less than one week, but the SCS.com has settled on the Georgia Bulldogs as the team to beat this fall, though not by a wide margin. Both Florida and Ohio State received first place votes as well, finishing in a tie for second behind UGA. Two of the sport's other mainstays, Oklahoma and Southern Cal, round out the....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PREVIEW: ALL-AMERICANS
August 20, 2008
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
Defending Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow highlights the preseason edition of the 2008 College Football All-America squads, as voted on by the SCS.com staff. A unanimous selection as a First Team All-American and our choice as the Preseason Offensive Player of the Year, the Florida quarterback is joined by the likes of Knowshon Moreno, Chris Wells, and Michael Crabtree as unanimous First Team picks. Southern Cal....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PREVIEW: BOWL PROJECTIONS
August 18, 2008
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
Saving the best for last, we now bring you the preview for the top conference in college football, hands down, the Southeastern Conference. After Florida and LSU have taken the past two national championships, all eyes will be on the conference that always seems to have the best one-loss team in the country. An undefeated team from the SEC is a lock for the BCS Championship, and that may be just what happens this year....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PREVIEW: POTENTIAL EARLY UPSETS
August 13, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
If I could predict the future, I would be a very rich man. However, I am not a very rich man. That does not mean it is impossible to pick an outrageous upset in August. It is just unlikely. Hey, this whole article is about underdogs. I am going to shock the world and do the impossible, I mean unlikely. One thing every college football fan knows is ranked teams lose to unranked non-conference opponents every year....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PREVIEW: ACC
August 11, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
After last season concluded with the league’s ninth consecutive BCS bowl loss, the ACC is looking for respect and to reverse the league’s declining national reputation. The league has not been able to win a BCS game since Florida State’s win over Virginia Tech in the 1999 Sugar Bowl and has not earned a BCS at-large berth in ten seasons. On the upside, both Boston College and Virginia Tech won eleven games and ended their....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PREVIEW: BIG TEN
August 8, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Big Ten has been relatively one-dimensional for the past three years with everyone looking up at Ohio State, and many indications show that 2008 will keep the trend going. In a transition year for perennial power Michigan, the opportunity arises for rising programs like Wisconsin and Illinois to shine. Some coaches (JoePa, Kirk Ferentz) appear to be on their way out, while newer guys (Tim Brewster and Pat Fitzgerald)....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PREVIEW: CHANGES FOR '08
August 6, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
As is always the case in the off-season, the NCAA reviews and adjusts the rule book in the hopes of continuously improving the on-field product. The key changes they've made during the past few months influence the game clock as the focus continues to be on reducing the overall length of the collegiate game and also to modify penalties to further increase player safety. Time for a more detailed look at additional key rule....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PREVIEW: BIG XII
August 4, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Many people are calling the Big 12 the quarterback conference for its obvious plethora of top signal callers. Although I do not disagree, I am calling the Big 12 something different: the second best conference in football. No one is willing to dispute the Southeastern Conference’s greatness (let’s all bow down to the mighty SEC), however the Big 12 is a close second. They are very strong at the top of the conference....[MORE]

SCS.com2008 PREVIEW: PAC-10
August 1, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Trojans of USC extended their conference championship streak to six last season, but overall the season was still considered a disappointment with two losses in Pac-10 competition. For the second season in a row, USC suffered multiple losses in the league after they had not lost more than one game within the conference for five consecutive seasons. The league also had California and Oregon rise to #2 in the national polls during....[MORE]
