SCS.comWEAK SCHEDULES HURT BUBBLE TEAMS' HOPES
November 30, 2007
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
There’s nothing like the NCAA tournament bubble. Consisting of dozens of teams looking to sneak into the Dance as an at-large selection, the bubble provides college basketball fans with a little extra entertainment once the month of February rolls around. The odd part about the bubble is most of the teams inside of it probably won’t get past the tournament’s first weekend. Still, once the college basketball season hits....[MORE]

SCS.comCONFERENCE TITLE GAMES HIGHLIGHT WEEK
November 29, 2007
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The last week of the regular season has arrived, and there remains plenty of positioning to be decided before heading into post-season action. This past weekend Missouri put themselves into the national championship driver’s seat with a decisive win over Kansas, while West Virginia also made a major statement of their own with a 66-21 win over UConn. Still lurking are the Ohio State Buckeyes and with their season....[MORE]

SCS.comA FINAL GLANCE AT THE BOWL PROJECTIONS
November 28, 2007
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
After another week where the top two teams in the country fell, the BCS looks like it might finally have a sensible layout for the final week of the season before bowl selections. Missouri is the clear #1 team after its win over Kansas, but I foresee the Tigers falling to Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship. If this happens, West Virginia and Ohio State will each shift up a spot, and there’s your national championship game....[MORE]

SCS.comBCS LOOK CLEARS AS TITLE WEEK DAWNS
November 27, 2007
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
The 2007 college football season all comes down to this: will the craziness and endless upsets lead to two non-traditional national championship contenders, or will currently established national powers back into the national title game? In the season best suited for a playoff, the BCS appears to be in the clear as far as criticism goes following LSU’s upset against Arkansas’s “Wild Hog” offense. Rivalry week cleared....[MORE]

SCS.comCONFERENCE CHALLENGES TIP OFF THIS WEEK
November 26, 2007
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Now that the early-season tournaments are over, the non-conference season is in full swing. Some teams are avoiding the big boys and beating up on lesser teams (I’m looking at you, Florida), and others are challenging themselves with brutal schedules. Both the Big 10/ACC Challenge and Big 12/Pac 10 Challenge kick off this week, and every night of the week you’ll be able to catch some good hoops action. Now is the time for....[MORE]

SCS.comLSU LOSS GIVES MOUNTAINEERS SHOT
November 25, 2007
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
The SEC might not be as strong as we thought coming into the year, but it sure is fun to watch, and several epic SEC games changed the BCS picture over the weekend. Thursday, Arkansas upset LSU in 3 overtimes. This was LSU’s 2nd loss this year, both in 3 overtimes. Darren McFadden put himself right back into the Heisman race with a tremendous performance against the Tigers, while LSU losing gave West Virginia a spot in the BCS....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG XII NORTH TITLE TO BE DECIDED
November 22, 2007
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
As quickly as Oregon entered the national championship picture, just as quickly they exited the title race with a loss to Arizona on Thursday evening. The Ducks lost quarterback and Heisman candidate Dennis Dixon in the 1st quarter, and could not overcome his loss against an inspired Arizona team. Also eliminated this past weekend were the Sooners of Oklahoma, who like Oregon lost their quarterback early on....[MORE]

SCS.comA SEASON WITH PLENTY TO BE THANKFUL FOR
November 21, 2007
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This week is a time to spend with friends and family in front of a huge meal, followed by a long nap or some football. There will be plenty of college basketball, pro football, and most importantly college football this weekend. Only the Big Ten is finished with their season, so there is still plenty of football to go with that leftover turkey and cranberry sauce. This is also the final full week of....[MORE]

SCS.comFROM THE BROADCAST BOOTH: TERPS AT NOLES
November 20, 2007
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
As a radio broadcaster at the University of Maryland, I have gotten the chance to cover a wide variety of sports. One of the great benefits of holding this position is the chance to travel the country covering college athletics. This season I have been covering the football team and with the start of basketball season, I’ve been covering the men’s basketball squad as well. This past weekend I found myself in Tallahassee....[MORE]

SCS.comTOURNEYS HEAT UP DURING HOLIDAY WEEK
November 19, 2007
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
This week, it really begins. The past two weeks were simply an unofficial college basketball pre-season, consisting of a few major games and a handful of exhibition games that happen to count towards regular season records. Now, it’s time to prepare yourself. Starting Monday night, and continuing throughout the week, there are almost a dozen tournaments to pay attention to, some containing monster matchups you won’t....[MORE]

SCS.comOREGON'S LOSS SHAKES UP TITLE RACE...AGAIN
November 18, 2007
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
A week does not go by in college football without a top 5 upset. Eleven unranked teams have beaten top 5 teams this year, a NCAA record. It started on Thursday when Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon got hurt in the first half. Oregon’s offense was not able to operate smoothly without the dynamic Dixon in the game. Arizona pounced on the opportunity and won the game 34-24. On Saturday, the upset bug found 4th ranked....[MORE]

SCS.comWHY NOT TIM TEBOW FOR HEISMAN?
November 16, 2007
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
With Oregon moving up into a top 2 BCS slot this weekend thanks to Illinois, the wide-open Heisman race of 2007 apparently now has a front-runner. Ducks QB Dennis Dixon has indeed been an impressive threat in the mold of Vince Young and Troy Smith, but the country gives him too much credit for leading a top BCS team. Certainly that is an important part of the mix and Louisville QB Brian Brohm loses....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG TEN CONFERENCE TITLE ON THE LINE
November 15, 2007
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
Right when the BCS picture seems to be coming into focus, another wrench is thrown into the standings as Illinois knocked off the top-ranked Buckeyes this past Saturday with a great offensive performance. Fans in both Baton Rouge and Eugene could not be happier as LSU and Oregon look to be the main beneficiaries of the Buckeyes loss, moving to #1 and #2 in the BCS standings. Still lurking in the national title picture....[MORE]

SCS.comEVALUATING THE BOWL SITUATION ONCE AGAIN
November 14, 2007
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
Just when it looked like the BCS was going to be able to avoid controversy surrounding the national championship game, Illinois had to ruin things by upsetting top-ranked Ohio State. With the Buckeyes falling to 7th in the latest BCS polls, there is a three-way race at the top for the right to play for a national title. It appears that LSU will remain at number one if they win out; it is unlikely the Tigers will be supplanted by anyone....[MORE]

SCS.comA-SUN ON THE RISE AFTER EARLY UPSETS
November 13, 2007
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
He was finally making his long awaited debut; it was the first step in turning a traditional football power into top notch basketball program; O.J. Mayo was taking the court with the Trojans for the first time. Mayo chose to take his talents west so he could someday be cited as the reason USC is in the upper echelon of the college basketball world. Mercer was chosen to be nothing more than an answer in USC and O.J. Mayo trivia....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: WHAT'S TO SEE IN WEEK TWO
November 12, 2007
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
With most major conference teams playing host to “cupcake” squads as a tune-up to begin the year, the first few weeks of college hoops are usually uneventful. That certainly wasn’t the case this year though, as both Kentucky and USC not only lost, but were blown out by Gardner-Webb and Mercer, respectively. With a few in-season tournaments entering the final rounds, as well as a large slate of other interesting games to....[MORE]

SCS.comOHIO STATE LOSS SHAKES UP BCS PICTURE
November 11, 2007
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
This is just what playoff advocates wanted. Several one loss teams vying for a spot in the national championship game, while an underrated undefeated Kansas team just keeps on winning. If every team wins out, should Kansas jump Oregon and LSU? If so, who does Kansas play? If Kansas loses, what makes LSU better then Oklahoma? I will tell you, pollsters and ESPN. More than likely, there will be a BCS....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: BRACKET PROJECTION

The 2007-2008 college basketball season has just barely gotten underway, but there's still time to take a look at the SCS.com staff's preseason bracket projection. Where should you make your reservations for this March? Well, if you're a fan of Memphis, UCLA, North Carolina, or Kansas, you can rest assured that your squad finds themselves as a number one seed in our preseason bracket. For the rest of you, it's time....[MORE]

SCS.comSEC HEAVYWEIGHTS SET TO SQUARE OFF
November 8, 2007
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
After a weekend in which each of the top ranked teams in the nation won, the shuffling at the top returned this past weekend with both Boston College and Arizona State being knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten. The loss by BC has the folks in Baton Rouge excited as LSU looks to move back into position for a shot at the national championship after their thrilling 41-34 win on the road at Alabama. Oregon also made....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE SHORT LIST OF BCS TITLE CONTENDERS
November 8, 2007
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Although we did not lose a single team from the zero and one loss club this past weekend, a couple of teams seriously jeopardized their championship chances with first losses (Boston College and Arizona State). Twelve teams remain in the mix for BCS bowls and it is time to discuss the chances for each and every one. Before getting to that, there were a couple notable things in Week 10. First, congratulations to Navy. No matter how....[MORE]

SCS.comA FOOTBALL SEASON FULL OF SURPRISE
November 6, 2007
By Joey, SCS.com Staff Writer
The renowned American historian Henry Adams once said, “Chaos often breeds life when order breeds habit.” Those words certainly reflect what has thus far been a topsy-turvy college football season. While the last few seasons have seen many of the same faces near the top of the polls, this season has produced plenty of unexpected players on the national scene. This year has seen more than just BCS party crashers though....[MORE]

SCS.comA PREVIEW OF COLLEGE HOOPS' OPENING WEEK
November 5, 2007
By Cody, SCS.com Staff Writer
It's early November, and that means college hoops season is here! College football is still in full swing, but this week marks the start of college basketball season. There aren't many great matchups this week, but most of the nation's top teams and incoming freshmen will be in action over the next six days. The 2K Sports College Hoops Classic starts Monday and will be the main focus during opening week. If anything, this first....[MORE]

SCS.comA WEEKEND IN COLUMBUS AT THE SHOE
November 4, 2007
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
I traveled to the Shoe this weekend to watch Ohio State play Wisconsin. This trip to Ohio was going to be different than the others I have previously made. For the first time, I was going to be watching from the press box. I know, this is not a big deal for a seasoned sports writer, but this was my first time. All the other writers were going through the motions, but I was as giddy as a school girl. I picked up my media credential at the....[MORE]

SCS.comPRESEASON TALLY LEAVES TIGERS ON TOP
November 3, 2007
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
It was a close tally, but as they've done numerous times in other polls already this offseason, the Memphis Tigers will start off atop the SCS.com Fab 15, slipping in narrowly ahead of the UCLA Bruins. North Carolina comes in at number three, before Tennessee and Louisville round out the top five. Traditional powers Kansas, Georgetown, and Michigan State fall in next, just ahead of Washington State and Indiana who complete....[MORE]

SCS.comSCS.COM NAMES PRESEASON ALL-AMERICANS
November 2, 2007
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
With the NBA no longer allowing players to jump straight from high school to the pros, the college game has seen an increasing amount of star power. Like Kevin Durant and Greg Oden last season, some extremely talented freshmen will be entering the college ranks this season, ready to play more like seasoned veterans than rookies. Still, while the novices may be fun to speculate about, college basketball is also filled....[MORE]

SCS.comCURRENT PAC-10 LEADERS COLLIDE IN WEEK 10
November 1, 2007
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
A bit of sanity was restored to the college football landscape this past weekend as the top ranked teams in the nation remained unscathed. In addition, all 5 of the unbeaten teams remained that way, with 4 surviving very tough challenges in a week that most experts felt a couple would fall by the wayside. Of the unbeaten teams, the most impressive performance of the weekend was Ohio State’s 37-17 dismantling of Penn State....[MORE]
