SCS.comOCTOBER: IN LIKE A LION, OUT LIKE A LAMB?
September 30, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Following a crazy weekend, the elite in the college football world are picking up the pieces. None of the four well-accepted national title contenders at the beginning of the season could make it through September unscathed, as USC, Georgia, and Florida joined Ohio State this week in the one-loss bracket of the BCS Sweepstakes. Conference play indeed has proven that it will be tough going in 2008....[MORE]

SCS.comQUICK HITS: A WEEK OF UPSETS, COMEBACKS
September 29, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Last Wednesday, I was thinking about my upcoming "Quick Hit" article. I conjured up a theme. Name the elite coaches that always have their players ready to play and never get out coached. Obviously, I threw that theme out the window after week 5. Pete Carroll, Urban Meyer, and Mark Richt are top coaches, but they all got out coached this weekend. Carroll’s players sleepwalked into Corvalis, Oregon. They left chasing their....[MORE]

SCS.comSEC CLASH SETS THE STAGE IN WEEK FIVE
September 25, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
Heading into the final weekend of action in September, an SEC battle is the top game on the schedule as Alabama travels to Athens to tackle the Georgia Bulldogs. The SEC continues to dominate the weekends best games and collegiate fans will be more than happy if this weeks highlight game matches the excitement of last Saturday’s Auburn/LSU battle. Both Georgia and Alabama are ranked in the nation’s top ten and both....[MORE]

SCS.comARE WE THERE YET? TIGERS' LAST TUNE-UP
September 24, 2008
By Michael, SCS.com Staff Writer
For the last non-conference game of Mizzou's season, most people were expecting a roll over. While Buffalo was coming in after a big last second win last week, most fans did not expect Mizzou to be tested; however, they were shockingly wrong. Mizzou came into the game ranked in the top ten as they had been all season, and Buffalo did not seem like a formidable opponent. Despite the rankings, Mizzou led by only six points at....[MORE]

SCS.comCONFERENCE CALL - NOW THE BATTLES EMERGE
September 23, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
After a fun-filled first four weeks of the college football season, autumn has officially arrived and with it comes conference play. For the most part, conferences will be judged on what they have done to this point and that could make the difference between a BCS at-large berth and a lesser bowl game. This week we'll take a quick rundown of each conference race and rank the conferences, with the best coming first. Is there any....[MORE]

SCS.comQUICK HITS: WAC AND MWC MAKING NOISE
September 22, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
College football is being turned upside down by the mid-majors. It is subtle, somewhat hard to notice, but it is happening. The Western Athletic Conference has looked very good so far. Boise State beat Oregon this week, although the Ducks played their 5th string quarterback in the 4th quarter. Louisiana Tech beat an SEC team, Mississippi State, in week one. Fresno State, who hung with Wisconsin, beat Rutgers earlier....[MORE]

SCS.comSEC WEST BATTLE HIGHLIGHTS THE SCHEDULE
September 18, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The fourth week of action features a couple of key SEC conference games, with LSU traveling to Auburn the top matchup of the weekend. Whichever team emerges victorious in the battle on the Auburn plains becomes the early favorite in the SEC West race as the winner between these two has claimed six of the past eight division titles. The other top SEC matchup is an East division contest between Florida and Tennessee as the....[MORE]

SCS.comINSIDE MIZZOU - WEEK 3: RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY
September 17, 2008
By Michael, SCS.com Staff Writer
Everybody loves a rainy day, but not when that rainy day is game day. For the second home game of the year the crowd was noticeably smaller than a typical crowd due in large part to the nasty weather. Despite the unpleasant skies, the Mizzou football team brought their A-game as they trounced Nevada 69-17. The rainy weather was not just a deterrent for fans, it also created some problems for both radio and equipment....[MORE]

SCS.comBLOWN BACK TO THE STONE AGE
September 16, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
With the best week of non-conference football behind us now, it is time to turn the national spotlight to regional battles and conference play. Much like the broad swath of country flooded or blacked out by Hurricane Ike this weekend, quite a few teams and conferences were blown back to the starting block this weekend. After watching the ACC and Big East struggle mightily in the first two weeks, the misery continued in other....[MORE]

SCS.comQUICK HITS: BUCKEYES BLOWN OUT - AGAIN
September 15, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Big Ten did a stellar job proving themselves to the country this past weekend. They proved that the experts, who have been dogging the conference since Ohio State lost to Florida in 2006, were right. The Big Ten, at this moment, cannot compete with the elite teams in college football. They also cannot compete with middle-of-the-road competition. It is devastating to watch. What has happened to this once proud....[MORE]

SCS.comNATIONAL TITLE CONTENDERS TANGLE IN LA
September 11, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
Heading into this weekend of collegiate action, one contest stands above all others on the schedule. The highlight game of the week is Ohio State paying a visit to USC, as these two powerhouses meet for the first time since the 1990 season. The Buckeyes are looking for respect after two straight national championship losses while the Trojans focus on continuing their recent dominance of the Big Ten conference. Other key....[MORE]

SCS.comLIVE FROM "THE ZOU" - HOME OPENER
September 10, 2008
By Michael, SCS.com Staff Writer
The old adage of “there’s no place like home” rang true for the Missouri Tigers on Saturday evening. Facing a far less formidable opponent than last week, Mizzou rolled to a 49-point victory over Southeast Missouri State University. I spent most of my time this week working with the broadcast team since our duties at home games are more expansive than they are on the road. Our first task, once our equipment was set up....[MORE]

SCS.comA COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK TO REMEMBER
September 9, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
For those expecting a masterpiece last week, you were sorely left holding out hope. When the "best" game of the week according to the national media is a rebuilding Miami team going to The Swamp to take on a top 5 Gator team, there must not be much to hope for. Nevertheless, for every Oklahoma-Cincinnati blowout there was a surprisingly exciting SDSU-Notre Dame or Ohio-Ohio State game. On the bright side for me....[MORE]

SCS.comQUICK HITS: WHO IS BETTER THAN ECU?
September 8, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Tell me one thing. Who is better than East Carolina? You might laugh, but hear me out. If you throw away your pre-determined notions about Conference USA, and if you are able to throw aside your recognition of the preseason rankings, how could you keep them out of the top 10? They have beaten two ranked opponents. They mauled the better team, West Virginia, 24-3. They have a tremendous coach, great athletes....[MORE]

SCS.comFANTASY FOOTBALL FRIDAY: SPREAD IT ON
September 5, 2008
By Tom, SCS.com Staff Writer
The emergence of the spread offense has given fantasy owners a chance to cash in on the riches. If you pick the right spread, that is. Pick the wrong one, and all is for naught. The spread offense can be divided into three types: The spread pass, the spread run, and the spread quarterback option. The spread pass offense run by Texas Tech will generate a boat load of points for your quarterback and wide receivers....[MORE]

SCS.comINTRASTATE BATTLE TOPS THE WEEKEND
September 4, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The second weekend of action does not feature a great slate of games, but there remain a few key contests to preview. The highlight matchup of the week is the return of the Miami and Florida rivalry as these two meet up for the first time since the 2004 Peach Bowl. Also worthy of mention this week is another ACC/SEC matchup as Mississippi travels to Wake Forest, while games between Oregon State and Penn State, Cincinnati and....[MORE]

SCS.comON THE ROAD: MISSOURI VS ILLINOIS
September 3, 2008
By Michael, SCS.com Staff Writer
For most fans the game day experience starts with the tailgate a few hours before the game. For the equipment staff at Mizzou, the game day experience starts two nights before the actual game, after the final practice of the week. On Thursday night after everyone has left the facility we began our game day preparations. In order to help us haul gear from one side of the country to another, or in this case from one side of....[MORE]

SCS.comFEELING "ACC"-RIMONIOUS: CURSE CONTINUES
September 2, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
The first week of the college football season is now in the books, and the country has turned its attention away from the Olympics and the presidential race for now. While inter-sectional battles are more typical the next two or three weeks, the first weekend gave us a taste of the season to come. From a rough debut in Ann Arbor to potential team-wrecking injuries in Athens and Columbus, there were plenty of....[MORE]

SCS.comMONDAY QUICK HITS FROM THE FIRST WEEKEND
September 1, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
I am officially the happiest person alive. College football is back and there is no shortage of things to discuss. The opening week was full of upsets, shootouts, and eye-openers. The first issue I want to cover is the ACC’s horrible weekend. The ACC’s top two teams, Virginia Tech and Clemson, were upset on Saturday. Virginia Tech lost to East Carolina, who looks like they will be the class of Conference USA. I love Frank Beamer....[MORE]
