This next weekend should....[MORE]

SCS.comMSG STILL THE BEST NEUTRAL ARENA
November 29, 2005
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
The lights go down. The arena goes dark, while a light beam begins to go around the building, leaving a spotlight on the team that is being introduced.

By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
This past week of college football was a great one as all the top SEC games turned into real classics, and the top six teams in that league are now pretty indistinguishable.

November 7, 2005
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Another great week of conference play has passed us by, and this week cleared up the BCS bowl picture quite a bit. Virginia Tech and UCLA were forcibly removed from the national title race this week, and Alabama remains as the only undefeated on the outside looking in at Texas and USC.

November 3, 2005
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
Ms. Nankivel was a great first grade teacher. She pushed us to read beyond the level of our first grade reader.

This often led to public embarrassment in front of the class, and to crying and wailing about how some students got words that were easier than others. When a student overstepped their....[MORE]

By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Now that most teams have five to six conference games under their belts, realistic goals for the end of the season are being realized for the first time.
