SCS.comAT LAST, THE END FINALLY PAYS OFF
October 31, 2007
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Although not received well critically, the latest installment of the movie Saw came out this weekend just in time for Halloween. While it may not be everybodyís cup of tea, my group of friends always goes to these, so on Monday night we jumped into the new mix of Jigsaw tests designed to help people cure themselves. I thought the Saw series was a great trilogy, but did not believe as I watched the movie that Saw IV....[MORE]

SCS.comA LATE-OCTOBER LOOK AT BOWL PROJECTIONS
October 30, 2007
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
For the first time in quite a while, the upper echelon of the college football world held steady for a weekend. There were no changes amongst the top seven teams in the BCS standings after this weekend's games. With that said, itís time for the second round of bowl projections by SCS.com. Things are getting very crowded in certain conferences, and that could have an impact on who gets in and who doesnít. The race in the SEC....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: PAC-10 & SEC
October 27, 2007
By Cody, SCS.com Staff Writer
The 2007-2008 SCS.com College Hoops Preview continues with the last two power conferences, the PAC-10 and SEC. Both conferences can make an argument that their respective league is the toughest in the nation, and that will make for some exciting games and moments in the upcoming season. UCLA is heavily favored in the PAC-10 after making two consecutive Final Four runs, but Washington State and Oregon....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: BIG EAST & BIG XII
October 26, 2007
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
As we continue our conference previews, we turn our attention to the Big East and Big XII. No conference may have more tournament caliber teams than the Big East, with ten teams having reasonable expectations of playing past their schedule and three of those holding Final Four aspirations that need to be taken seriously. Needless to say, the Big East is stacked. The conferenceís torch was carried by Georgetown last season....[MORE]

SCS.comACC DIVISIONAL LEADERS SET TO CLASH
October 25, 2007
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The turnover at the top of the college football landscape continues on a weekly basis as top ten teams South Florida, South Carolina, and Kentucky stumbled this past weekend. The #2 slot in the national rankings has been an especially bad omen, as for a 3rd consecutive week, the team in that slot has been defeated, with USF being the latest victim. As the season heads into the 9th week of action, there still are 5 undefeated....[MORE]

SCS.comSEC: THE REAL DEAL OR JUST MEDIOCRE?
October 24, 2007
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Close behind the BCS debate and related to that, the endless debate about which conference is the best in Division I college football is a great topic of discussion around our sport. The problem with the debate is that nobody really knows who is best until out-of-conference play and bowl games, which is a very small sample size to determine such things. As if the sample size were not problem enough, the conferences shift....[MORE]

SCS.comRUN-DOWN OF THIS YEAR'S HEISMAN HOPEFULS
October 24, 2007
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
The BCS poll is in full swing and the college football season is starting its second half downward descent. While players are doing everything they can to ensure wins for their team on the field, college football writers across the country are starting to feel the Heisman crunch. In recent years the races have been a little more clear cut than this season, with the likes of Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush and Troy Smith separating....[MORE]

SCS.comJUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU FIGURED IT OUT...
October 21, 2007
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
South Florida loses a thriller. South Carolina gets upset. Kentucky cannot stop Florida. Just when you start to wrap your head around the BCS, mayhem and chaos make their way into the top 10. If you are a betting man, I pity you. This is the most unpredictable and wishy-washy year of college football I have ever seen. Ohio State looked like the best team in the country for the first 40 minutes against Michigan State....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: NON-CONFERENCE GAMES
October 20, 2007
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
This season's schedule is full of great non-conference games. Many would be surprised to see so many contests between top 10-15 teams. However, there is not a fan out there that would complain about the amount of high-quality games on this season's slate. Furthermore, there are also dozens of games between potential NCAA Tournament teams and quality mid-major squads. Nearly every night, you can sit down and watch....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW '07-'08: ACC & BIG TEN
October 19, 2007
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Now that November is quickly approaching, itís time to take a look at college basketballís power conferences. We start with the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big 10, two traditionally strong leauges that may experience somewhat of a down year in 2007-2008. Even with outstanding teams at the top, the bottom of both conferences wonít put up much of a fight, contributing to the weakening of both leagues....[MORE]

SCS.comSEC EAST RETURNS TO THE SPOTLIGHT
October 18, 2007
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
Another week of college football, and yet another shake-up at the top of the national rankings. In games that ended in thrilling fashion, both LSU and California were tripped up as there seems to be no team that wants a berth in the BCS national title game. After the Tigers' win over Florida, a lot of the experts had already penciled LSU into the championship game, but as this season continues to demonstrate, the teams at the top....[MORE]

SCS.comMARSHALL AND USF: A TALE OF TWO PROGRAMS
October 17, 2007
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... The year 1997 brought two very interesting developments in college football. The Marshall Thundering Herd football team moved back into Division I-A after being kicked out of the MAC and suffering a devastating plane crash 30 years previous. A little farther down the east side of the country, the South Florida Bulls started a football team for the first time in school....[MORE]

SCS.comUNVEILING THE FIRST BOWL PROJECTIONS
October 16, 2007
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
With the first official BCS Rankings going public this week, now is the time that we will really start to see a lot of bowl projections coming out. Predicting the matchups in 31 bowls with 62 teams, out of the plethora of programs that are still in contention to be bowl eligible at this point in the season, is not an easy task. It has been made even harder this season by the tremendous amount of unpredictability that has been....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE UPSETS JUST KEEP ON COMING IN WEEK 7
October 14, 2007
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
This is the craziest year in college football, period. No team is untouchable. No team is safe. LSU and Cal, who were ranked 1 and 2 respectively in every poll, suffered their first losses of the season in week seven. LSU lost a three OT thriller at Kentucky. Cal, who played a redshirt freshman at QB because Nate Longshore was out with an ankle injury, lost to Oregon State at home. Missouri and Cincinnati, who came into week seven....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW '07-'08: BIG SHOES TO FILL
October 13, 2007
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
Players leave their teams after every season, whether it was a matter of eligibility running out, the player taking the early-entry route, or in some cases a transfer from one school to another. It's the way college basketball is. However, the impact of the missing players on their old team will vary from school to school as we look ahead to the 2007-2008 season. This year, there is an obvious absence of several of the best players....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW '07-'08: MID-MAJORS PART II
October 12, 2007
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
As we continue our look at the mid-major conferences, our focus shifts to the Missouri Valley, Mountain West, Western Athletic, and West Coast Conferences. Last season, Southern Illinois and UNLV carried the March banner for these conferences, as both made it past the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. However, both teams lost key players in the Salukis' Jamaal Tatum and the Rebelsí Wendell White and Kevin Kruger....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG XII LEADERS SET TO DO BATTLE IN WEEK 7
October 11, 2007
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
Two weekends ago it was the top ten that took a major hit with numerous teams suffering their first loss, while this past weekend two of the nationís top five teams were upset to yet again shuffle the top of the rankings. The stunner of the day was Stanford scoring a last minute touchdown to upset USC, handing the Trojans their first loss at home since 2001. Meanwhile at Illinois, the nationís longest winning streak came to an end....[MORE]

SCS.comHANDING OUT FOOTBALL'S HALFTIME AWARDS
October 10, 2007
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
Well after another week of upsets (sorry USC and Wisconsin), weíve reached the midway point of the season, and things are following suit exactly as the experts expected. Well, sort of. LSU is the number one team in the land, not a total shocker since they were one of the preseason favorites to win it all. A Big Ten team is ranked in the top five, but most were expecting to see a Wolverine, not a Buckeye....[MORE]

SCS.comWHEN, OR WILL, THE CRAZINESS END?
October 9, 2007
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Coming off a tough road win where everything went wrong (turnovers, bad weather, injuries), the top team in the country had a nice home cupcake to heal up. Thirty-six straight home wins, 41 point favorites over the worst team in the conference, and then all of a sudden none of that matters. Stanford 24, USC 23. This tops Colorado beating Oklahoma and even Appalachian State over Michigan. Forget March Madness....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW '07-'08: MID-MAJOR, PART I
October 6, 2007
By Cody, SCS.com Staff Writer
The mid-major conferences have garnered a lot of attention in recent years by making deep runs into March Madness. Teams such as George Mason, Butler, UW-Milwaukee, and others have made their respective mark on college basketball by upsetting numerous big-name schools throughout the past few seasons. This season should be no different, as there are numerous mid-majors with a chance to shake up the....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW '07-'08: LOW-MAJOR PREVIEW
October 5, 2007
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
The beauty of college basketball is the fact that anything can happen on any given day. Just because a team doesnít play in a major conference doesnít mean it has no shot against the big boys. Heck, you donít even need to be from one of the middle-tier conferences (Missouri Valley, Atlantic 10, etc.) to pull off a shocking upset. Ask Iowa State how it felt when the Hampton Pirates out of the Mid-Eastern Athletic....[MORE]

SCS.comBATTLE OF HEAVYWEIGHTS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
October 4, 2007
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
Last week's action decimated the nationís top ten as highly rated teams fell all weekend long in one of the best couple of days of collegiate action. One of those teams which was upset will take center stage again this weekend, as Florida looks to regroup against LSU in always tough Death Valley as the nationís highlight game of the week. The SEC also features another great matchup between two teams that have played very well....[MORE]

SCS.comCAN ANYONE RUN THE TABLE THIS SEASON?
October 3, 2007
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
A weekend of upsets in the top ten has left the college football world at least temporarily upside down. There are plenty of names in this weekís top ten that are probably unfamiliar to casual fans. Teams like Cal, South Florida, and Kentucky all benefited from the combination of their own victories, and the massacre that was the previous weekend. With the season approaching the halfway point the current AP Poll packs....[MORE]

SCS.comPREVAILING IN A GAME OF BCS SURVIVOR
October 2, 2007
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
What a rough week to reside in the top ten of college football. My last column focused on the month of near-upsets, which just proves you should not make generalizations about a month before the last weekend is over. It seemed inevitable, but the real big upsets finally started happening in bulk. For anybody who loves the recent onslaught of television shows such as Survivor and Solitary, college football is the best sport....[MORE]
