  • Gator Bowl dropping "Gator" completely, moves to Jan 2nd

    Jacksonville, FL — After 70 years the Gator Bowl - as we've known it - is no more. The new name of the game removes "gator" entirely, and it will no longer be played on New Years Day, two big changes that we learned Thursday morning from the President of Gator Bowl Sports. The game will now be known as the TaxSlayer Bowl and played on Jan. 2nd. Dropping "gator" from the name is part of a six-year agreement reached between TaxSlayer.com and the Gator Bowl. "TaxSlayer.com recognizes the history of the Bowl's rich 70 year tradition. It is a...

    <p>NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.

    College football wasn’t always like this. The eyes of the nation weren’t always riveted on a massive stadium in a tiny town in southeastern Alabama, wondering whether the two-time defending national champion Crimson Tide could really​—​against all probability—be knocked off by archrival Auburn. They weren’t always glued a week later to a game in Big Ten country, wondering whether Michigan State could really hand Ohio State its first loss in two years and knock the Buckeyes out of the national title picture. No, the race for the national championship wasn’t always so exciting. In fact, not that long ago there...

    In a nationally televised press conference on Thursday, State Attorney Willie Meggs announced that Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexual assault. While it sounded as if Meggs found the accuser ) to be generally believable, gaps in her memory coupled with the discovery of another man's (apparently the complainant's boyfriend) DNA meant the standard for charging and prosecuting Winston was not met. The case, which dates back to Dec. 7, 2012, is considered closed. In many ways, Meggs' press conference appeared to be damage control, with Meggs -- an elected official -- insisting the investigation...

An alleged victim said that Winston raped her last December, while Winston’s attorney said the sex was consensual. The alleged victim’s family released a statement two weeks ago questioning the investigation.

    With coordinator Brent Pease out at Florida, expect the next guy handling Will Muschamp’s offense to shake things up a bit. With the personnel Florida had this year — coupled with injuries all over the field — the Gators struggled mightily to score. They averaged 18.8 points per game, tied for 111th nationally. It’s still yet to be seen what direction Florida will go in offensively, but coaches will often say and try anything in order to retain their jobs. Though Muschamp has received the repeated backing of athletic director Jeremy Foley, he still must work to keep recruits in...

    Earlier this fall, when the Ducks were undefeated and quarterback Marcus Mariota had emerged as the Heisman Trophy frontrunner, it appeared that the Oregon star was on his way toward a top selection in the 2014 NFL draft. However, following the team’s recent losses to Stanford (26-20 on Nov. 7) and Arizona (42-16 on Nov. 13) — and with Mariota falling off a bit, some of which can be attributed to a lingering injury in his left knee — the signal-caller has announced he’s returning to school for his junior season.

Mora had been connected with Washington’s head coaching opening since UW coach Steve Sarkisian was hired as USC’s newest coach on Monday. Mora is a graduate of the University of Washington, where he played football and began his coaching career as a graduate assistant.

    Before you throw rocks at your screen, let me stipulate that I am NOT making the case for keeping the BCS system. I am excited to see the beginning of the next era in football championships, which begins next season. However, as we prepare to pull the plug on what will no doubt be referred to in years hence as "the BCS era" in major college football, it is high time to finally give the BCS its due. By that, I mean it's about time to compare the BCS to what it replaced, instead of the system replacing it, let...

    Sports Illustrated ^ | December 2, 2013 | Stewart Mandel
    USC athletic director Pat Haden had two months to decide on the best possible candidate to replace disastrous coach Lane Kiffin. Should it concern Trojans fans that the guy he chose, Washington's Steve Sarkisian, has a lower career Pac-12 winning percentage (.539) than the guy Haden fired (.586)? It's not an apples-to-apples comparison. Kiffin took over a program just a year removed from a streak of seven straight BCS bowl seasons, albeit one that would soon be hit with crippling NCAA sanctions. Sarkisian, Kiffin's close friend and former co-offensive coordinator under Pete Carroll (aw-kward), inherited a Washington program that had...

Meanwhile, Florida State's sitting pretty. Full standings below. It doesn't matter that Ohio State went 12-0 last year. It doesn't matter that an unbeaten Auburn was shut out of the BCS National Championship in 2004. It doesn't matter that Ohio State has lost two national title games against SEC teams in recent years. It doesn't matter that the SEC has won seven straight championships. Or at least it shouldn't. What will matter,...

    At 4:43 a.m. ET on Dec. 7, 2012, a report of a sexual assault was filed with the Tallahassee Police Department. The incident took place earlier that morning, between 1:30 and 2 a.m. The alleged suspect, it is now known, is Jameis Winston, currently the starting quarterback and Heisman contender for second-ranked Florida State. Winston has not been charged with a crime. Forget innocent until proven guilty, absolutely no law enforcement body has accused him of doing anything at all. He'll continue to quarterback the Seminoles.

    For the third time in five years, Stanford stunned an Oregon team with legitimate national championship aspirations. For the second consecutive year, the Cardinal might have knocked the Ducks out of a Rose Bowl berth as well. And as a result, the Pac-12 won't be playing for the national championship for the seventh time in the BCS's final eight years. Stanford's upset victory, coupled with Baylor's pasting of Oklahoma in a pair of Thursday night Top 10 showdowns, sent a shockwave through the top of the BCS even before the weekend.
