SCS.comTHE WEEKEND'S BEST
October 30, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor

Wisconsin RB Brian Calhoun was named the SCS.com National Player of the Week after dashing for nearly 200 yards and five TDs in the Badgers' win at Illinois. Central Michigan and Rutgers also had big victories....[MORE]

October 30, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The top four players in the SCS.com Pick'Em Contest standings remained in place, while faycats, who turned in one of the better scores of the past weekend, jumped into a tie for fifth place. Gamecockfan04, who piled up 151 out of a possible 153 points, was last weekend's top picker. A total of twenty-two contestants earned at least 140 points during last week's action. Theywood's overall contest lead now stands at eleven....[MORE]

SCS.comONE ON ONE WITH MIKE HALL
October 28, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
George Washington University forward Mike Hall recently took time to answer a few questions from SCS.com. Hall is one of the top players in the country and is a returning senior for the Colonials. The Chicago, Illinois native considered a jump to the NBA last summer, but he and teammate Pops Mensah-Bonsu both decided to return to Washington D.C. for the upcoming season. George Washington is looking to make....[MORE]

SCS.comA GLANCE AT THE PRESEASON HOOPS EVENTS
October 27, 2005
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
Here in Kentucky, the frost settled on the grass for the first time yesterday morning. The air was cool and crisp, and the forecasted weekend temperatures are in the mid-sixties instead of the mid-nineties. Furthermore, I carved my jack-o-lantern last night. After the goopy mess of seeds and stringy fiber had been cleaned up, I had a wonderful round, orange masterpiece not entirely unlike a basketball - only with....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW '05: MID-MAJORS, PART II
October 27, 2005
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
SCS.com's Hoops Preview '05 series gets rolling once again with a glance at three of the country's mid-major leagues.

SCS.comMATT LEINART: POTENTIAL ALL-PRO OR BUST?
October 26, 2005
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
Matt Leinart possesses all the skills of a gifted college quarterback, but how will his talents transfer onto the NFL gridiron? With a rocket arm, unquestionable game savvy, and a quick release, Leinhart certainly seems poised to be the next great quarterback in the National Football League. I have examined several areas of his game and personality to determine whether or not I think he will succeed at the next level of play....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE ROAD TO PASADENA
October 25, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Although only one undefeated team, Texas Tech, lost this weekend, the road to the Rose Bowl became clear for all teams still involved. USC and Texas have distanced themselves from the pack, each claiming huge road wins over the likes of Notre Dame and Ohio State in recent weeks and generally dominating their competition. Texas has not been truly challenged since early September, and their schedule is the most....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEKEND PREVIEW
October 24, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The unbeaten Georgia Bulldogs, ranked fourth in this week's SCS.com Fab 15, venture over to Jacksonville to take on Florida for the first time since Urban Meyer took over as the Gator head coach. UGA broke a six-game losing streak to UF last year, but a loss to Auburn later in the year kept the Dawgs out of the SEC Championship Game. With no blemishes to this point, a victory over Florida on Saturday keeps Georgia in the....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE WEEKEND'S BEST
October 23, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Stanford picked up a huge PAC 10 win over Arizona State Saturday and is now 4-2 in Coach Walt Harris' first year on campus. Back east, Notre Dame got back on track Saturday as QB Brady Quinn tossed a school-record six touchdown passes, four of those to WR Maurice Stovall. For his efforts, Quinn was named the SCS.com National Player of the Week. Missouri QB Brad Smith was also stellar in a win over Nebraska on Saturday....[MORE]

SCS.comTHEYWOOD INCREASES PICK'EM LEAD SLIGHTLY
October 23, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Theywood turned in one of the weekend's best scores in the SCS.com College Football Pick'Em Contest and increased his lead from six to ten points as we near the final weekend of October. Faycats' score of 181 was the contest's best mark of the week, while theywood tallied a total of 179 points over the weekend. Thirteen contestants have accumulated at least 1175 points on the season thus far, led by theywood's total....[MORE]

SCS.comIT'S BACK: THE BCS RETURNS
October 20, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
It might have a different poll this year, and it might still not be a fair system, but the BCS is back to weekly prominence in the college football world. At this critical midpoint of the season, looking at the BCS standings can tell us a lot about the hopes and dreams of the top teams in the nation for making the Rose Bowl or another BCS bowl come January. One certain outcry of the BCS this week is how low Notre Dame fell after their....[MORE]

SCS.comTOP FIVE FOOTBALL FINISHES OF ALL-TIME
October 19, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Since football first originated, the sport has been filled with climactic bouts of great magnitude and excitement. The time limit on the games almost certainly means that some games will go down to the wire. Having been a sports fan for many, many years, I have had the opportunity to witness many of these great football jousting matches, either in replay or in live action, and have picked a few as favorites of my own, which I....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEKEND PREVIEW
October 18, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The top two teams in the Big XII get together Saturday afternoon in Austin, and when the game is over, only one team will be 4-0 in conference play. Both Texas and Texas Tech are 6-0 on the season with a trio of league wins, but it's the Longhorns who have garnered much of the national attention thus far. An early-season win at Ohio State vaulted UT into the number two position in the SCS.com Fab 15, and that has been....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE WEEKEND'S BEST
October 16, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Virginia was one of the many teams around the country to pick up big conference wins over the weekend, the Cavs' victory coming at home over Florida State. Farther west, Texas Tech QB Cody Hodges threw for an incredible 643 yards in a Big XII win against Kansas State. RB Steve Slaton of West Virginia was named the SCS.com National Player of the Week after rushing for 188 yards and scoring five TDs in a win over Louisville....[MORE]

SCS.comPICK'EM LEADERBOARD BEGINNING TO CROWD
October 16, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Worse than trev alberts was one of the SCS.com Pick'Em Contest's top pickers this past week and has now moved into a tie for second place with Greech. That pair is currently just six points behind the leader theywood, a nine point improvement from a week ago. Oksoonersfootball1 earned a total of 150 points this past week, the weekend's top score. A total of twenty-seven contestants compiled at least 133 points last week....[MORE]

SCS.comDIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
October 13, 2005
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
Watching college football this season has been a satisfying experience as usual, but the more I have watched, the more I have noticed certain players playing exceptional football, yet going unnoticed by the national spotlight. From Oregon State wide receiver Mike Haas to San Diego State running back Lynell Hamilton, these players continue to excel while gaining very little respect or recognition. I have combed through rosters....[MORE]

SCS.comTRADITIONAL POWERS LOOKING GOOD
October 12, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Another week passes by, and the traditional powers find more success while recent powerhouses falter. Penn State and Alabama may have big tests in front of them still, but both teams have to be considered the new surprise favorite for a league title (Penn State has an outright conference lead already!). Notre Dame did lose to Michigan State and has a tough battle against USC this week, but nobody can deny Charlie Weis....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEKEND PREVIEW
October 11, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Southern Cal's trip to Notre Dame on Saturday ends the Trojans' streak of three road games in four weeks. USC has survived the two previous away games, as well as last week's home game with Arizona, though none of the outings were particularly dominating. The Irish have rather quietly picked up a pair of road wins themselves since losing to Michigan State in week three and head into this weekend with a 4-1 overall record.....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE WEEKEND'S BEST
October 9, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The Baylor Bears ended a ten-year drought on Saturday at Iowa State, picking up their first-ever road win in the history of the Big XII. Also over the weekend, QB Brett Basanez and RB Tyrell Sutton helped lead Northwestern over Wisconsin. For his effort, Sutton was named the SCS.com National Player of the Week. In the MAC, it took five overtimes, but Ball State finally prevailed over Western Michigan 60-57....[MORE]

SCS.comTOP THREE HOLD STEADY IN PICK'EM CONTEST
October 9, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
The SCS.com Pick'Em Contest's top three of theywood, Greech, and worse than trev alberts remained in place following the weekend's action, though theywood did extend his lead from eleven to fifteen points as we near the midpoint of the 2005 college football season. BigC was the top picker last week, earning 120 out of a possible 136 points. A half-dozen Pick'Em contestants are currently within thirty points of the leader....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE NEXT MICHAEL VICK?
October 7, 2005
By Jeremy, SCS.com Staff Writer
For as long as I'd known, WMV was a file format that somehow became the default for my PC. Thanks to Bill Gates, Windows Media Player is the player of choice for my crazy internet video files. Today though, WMV can no longer simply be known as a file format. It is much more than that. WMV, from this day henceforth, shall mean "White Michael Vick." What? Now who in their right mind would call anyone a white Michael....[MORE]

SCS.comCONFERENCE TITLE GAMES IN OCTOBER?
October 5, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
After watching this past week's games, most of the major conferences have sorted themselves out nicely. There are only twelve undefeated teams left spread among five BCS conferences (the Big East lost theirs last this week thanks to Virginia Tech), and no more than five of those teams will finish the year undefeated. It appears that this will be another year where one or two one-loss teams will make the Rose Bowl....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEKEND PREVIEW
October 4, 2005
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Georgia and Tennessee meet in Knoxville on Saturday in a battle that is not only huge in the SEC East standings but on a national scale as well. Both teams are ranked among the top six in the latest SCS.com Fab 15 and among the top eight in both the ESPN/USA Today and AP rankings. The Bulldogs have yet to lose this season, and Tennessee's lone defeat came on the road at Florida a few weeks ago. The Vols got things back....[MORE]

Michigan RB Mike Hart returned from injury and ran for 218 yards on Saturday, helping the Wolverines to claim a huge road victory over in-state rival Michigan State. Alabama also grabbed a big win in the SEC over the weekend, slamming SEC East rival Florida by four TDs Saturday afternoon.
