SCS.comWHAT 2 WATCH 4: LEAGUE TILTS, NON-BCS TEST
September 29, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The conference season is heating up this weekend all around the country, most notably in the Big Ten, Pac-10, and ACC, and many of the top contenders in those three leagues will hit the road this Saturday. Meanwhile, it's also a weekend that will see two of the top non-BCS teams in the country, TCU and Boise State, hit the road for one of the toughest tests they'll see all season. Both are ranked among the top 25....[MORE]

SCS.comCHANGING SEASONS: CONFERENCE PLAY
September 27, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
A wise college coach once said, “conference play is the second season, a step up from the non-conference play in intensity and passion.” As college football officially moves into conference play last weekend and this weekend, these words ring true no matter what league you speak of. The battles are always a bit more intense, as regional and conference bragging rights are on the line every week. Teams who play you every....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK #5: THE GAMES TO KEEP AN EYE ON
September 26, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The matchups in week #5 are very similar to last weekend's slate of games. It's not a great overall schedule of top 25 contests, but any week containing college football action is a good one. In reviewing the schedule, there are numerous contests that are worth keeping an eye on as the vast majority of teams are now venturing into conference play. This is the time of year when conference races begin to take shape....[MORE]

SCS.comSTEADY SATURDAY LEADS TO FEW CHANGES
September 25, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
I had September 23rd circled on my calendar. It was the day that Penn State played Ohio State, and I took a six-hour road trip to Columbus, Ohio. The environment, crowd, and game were amazing, and I still managed to stay in touch with the college football world even though I was nowhere near a remote control or computer for most of the trip. Michigan State disappointed its fans again with an upsetting loss to Notre Dame....[MORE]

SCS.comLOOKING BACK ON A WEEKEND OF NEAR-MISSES
September 24, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
Well this week was yet another impressive week on the college football scene. Several near-misses along with a number of shellackings provided us with another weekend of testosterone-inducing excitement that left us hungry for more. Several teams that should have won lost, while others that lost last week took out their frustration on their opponents this week. Quarterback controversies loomed and coaching decisions....[MORE]

SCS.comWHAT 2 WATCH 4: THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM
September 22, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The calm after the storm, that's where we find ourselves one week after Showdown Saturday. No matchup this weekend is as big-time as any of the top five or six last Saturday, yet sometimes it's a weekend like this when fans, and their teams, should keep their eyes open for the possibility of one of those really huge upsets, one that ends a squad's national title hopes. Might it be in the Big Ten? It very well could be, as there....[MORE]

SCS.comCALM DOWN PEOPLE, IT'S JUST A GAME!
September 21, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Welcome back everybody! I hope you had a chance to see some of the great football of “Separation Saturday,” as most of the big games were well worth watching. In case you missed it, the most exciting finish was in Autzen Stadium as Oregon stormed back from a 13 point deficit with three minutes left to defeat Oklahoma 34-33. The fallout from this game has been incredible, and I’m here to tell Oklahoma fans to get over it!....[MORE]

SCS.comSEPARATING THE MEN FROM THE BOYS
September 20, 2006
By Ethan, SCS.com Staff Writer
“Separation Saturday” did a world of good in giving the country a better idea of which teams will be contenders and which will be pretenders for the national championship and BCS bowl invitations in January. But along with signaling the teams to look out for, week three of the college schedule also gave some valuable insight into the reasons why some teams can be considered elite and others are have a ways to go before....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK #4: HIGHLIGHTING THE BEST OFFERINGS
September 19, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
After week #3’s tremendous matchups and great finishes, week #4 is bound to be a step down in the number of quality games on the schedule. That being said, there are still numerous matchups, including several huge Big Ten showdowns and a couple of big games out in the Pac-10, that are worth watching as most teams head into conference play with the month of October already just a couple weeks away. How will teams....[MORE]

SCS.comSUPER WEEKEND DOESN'T DISAPPOINT
September 19, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
This week was dubbed Separation Saturday, and it proved to be one of the best Saturday's in September history. There was never a dull moment, as perennial powerhouses fell, new front-runners emerged, and pretenders were exposed. The name fit perfectly. Rarely is a week of college football this early in September full of exciting matchups. There was controversy, blowouts, low-scoring games, and dramatic finishes....[MORE]

SCS.comLOOKING BACK AT SHOWDOWN SATURDAY
September 17, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
Week three in college football put a few things that may not have previously been known in the forefront of the football world. Michigan showed the rest of the world that Notre Dame is not as good as everyone predicted and that they themselves might be better than everyone else thought. The Pac-10 showed the nation that the instant replay system can be used to swing a game in their favor, while Larry Coker....[MORE]

SCS.comWHAT 2 WATCH 4: SHOWDOWN SATURDAY
September 15, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Many are calling this college football weekend the biggest not just this year, but the biggest in many years. So what makes that the case? A number of things, including two huge Saturday showdowns in the SEC where Florida travels to Tennessee and LSU visits Auburn. There are also a number of other huge matchups around the country, including a pair that pit two Fab 15 teams against each other....[MORE]

SCS.comRULE CHANGES: THE GOOD, BAD, AND UGLY
September 13, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
As we move into perhaps the best overall Saturday of college football this season, it is time to take a look back on the opening of the season. While most were preparing for the Ohio State-Texas showdown last week, I was preparing to take a look at how major rule changes are working in college football this season. I can say with definite sureness that the NCAA has had mixed results on rule changes, so perhaps now is a good time....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK 3 PREVIEW: SPOTLIGHTING THE BEST
September 12, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
What a great weekend to settle into the recliner, sit back, and watch an excellent day of college football. Week number three has a number of top matchups, including an SEC doubleheader that will certainly set the stage in both the East and West divisions. Other critical non-conference matchups on this weekend's slate are sure to shape the national title picture as the conference season looms on the horizon. It's time to break down....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG GAMES TURN INTO BIG BLOWOUTS
September 12, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Ohio State vs Texas, Notre Dame vs Penn State. What a great Saturday! These games will be classics. A week later, we realize that we were wrong. Notre Dame rolled through a young Penn State team, while Ohio State controlled the game against the Vince Young-less Texas Longhorns. The best game of the week? Boston College vs Clemson. Just like you predicted, right? There weren't too many top 25 losses....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK TWO RECAP
September 10, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
Week two was another spectacular week in the college football world. Giants fell and underdogs won in a week that was exciting to the end. Texas showed that even though Colt McCoy is a very good young quarterback, he is far from in-Vince-able. Colorado made another loop in their downward spiral, and Florida State survived a scare against the Troy Trojans, as did Tennessee against the Air Force Falcons....[MORE]

SCS.comWHAT 2 WATCH 4: WEEK TWO
September 8, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
All the talk this week, and rightfully so, has been about the impending collision between the two teams this site, and many others, rank numbers one and two in the country. But there are a number of other things to keep an eye on this weekend as well, like how teams who picked up big week one wins - Notre Dame, Arizona, and Tennessee, for example - will respond in week two. In addition, there are also a number of big....[MORE]

SCS.comDÉJÀ VU: EVERYTHING IS BIGGER IN TEXAS
September 7, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Last season on September 10, 2005, #4 Ohio State welcomed #2 Texas into the marquee game of the regular season. Most experts said the loser would probably be eliminated from the national title hunt, but the winner would be a frontrunner to run the table and play (presumably at the time) streaking USC in the Rose Bowl. What happened was nothing short of a classic, and would have been the most memorable....[MORE]

Please be warned. If you don't have a habit of pressing your middle and ring finger's to your thumb and thrusting your hand to the sky to yell "hook'em!," this column may not be for you.

SCS.comWEEK #2: HIGHLIGHTING THE TOP MATCHUPS
September 6, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
After the first full week of collegiate action, not much was decided on the national stage, as most of the initial week’s action could be summed up as mismatches. Week number two maintains its share of mismatches as well, but it also features what can be called a national title knockout game, in addition to several other intriguing contests featuring both conference rivals and inter-sectional battles. Let’s take a look....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK ONE BEGINS TO SHAPE BOWL PICTURE
September 5, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
It has finally arrived. The new season of college football kicked off with a bang. Starting on Thursday, college football fans got five straight days of great games. Saturday, the busiest day, had some marquee matchups. Notre Dame, Southern Cal, California, Tennessee, and Oklahoma all had tough games. Some impressed, like Tennessee and USC, while some disappointed, like California and Oklahoma. It's never too early....[MORE]

September 4, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
Well, it has finally arrived and let me tell you, the opening week lived up to the hype that was thrust upon it. Monstrous upsets and colossal beat-downs headlined the events that took place on yet another exciting weekend in college athletics. From Colorado’s stunning defeat at the hands of the Montana State Bobcats to the classic thriller that occurred between the Iowa State Cyclones and the Toledo Rockets, this weekend....[MORE]

SCS.comWHAT 2 WATCH 4: WEEK ONE
September 1, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
At long last, it's finally here. No, not college football season. I'm talking about the first true hurricane threat of the season here in the U.S. OK, so Ernesto fizzled out before he arrived, but at least it gave the weather people, those gurus who have been hyping this hurricane season for months and months, something to talk about for a few days. I'm only kidding, of course, but actually, even a weakened Ernesto....[MORE]
