December 31, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
A non-BCS conference team has made its way into the Bowl Championship Series for just the second time ever. After Utah was the first to make that jump back in 2004 (in the Fiesta Bowl, ironically), Boise State has matched that feat here to cap off the 2006 season. The unbeaten Bronocs, lead by first year head coach Chris Petersen, will be taking on the Oklahoma Sooners, champions of the Big XII this fall. OU is 11-2....[MORE]

December 30, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
"The Grandaddy of Them All" has the best BCS matchup of the season, and this game is a wonderful consolation prize to these two teams who had their eyes set on a showdown with the Buckeyes in Glendale. Any Pac-10/Big Ten pairing is welcome in the Rose Bowl for tradition's sake, but these two teams are a dream matchup. Both squads lost to Texas in the last two Rose Bowl games, so now this provides an opportunity....[MORE]

Upset after upset. Heroic one-man performances. Top teams falling left and right. Overtime classics. The first month of the college basketball season has provided us with all of that, and much more. The “consensus” top three teams heading into the season — Florida, North Carolina, and Kansas — have a combined five losses. It’s pretty much a crapshoot as to which teams look like championship contenders....[MORE]

The burden of awarding the first annual 'Freedies' (a play on my last name) college football awards has been placed on me.
