    Wow! The Arkansas - Ole Miss game was one of the best I have watched in a long time. Epic football, back and forth the whole game ties at the end of the 1st quarter, tied at half, tied at the end of the 3rd quarter, and tied at the end of the game, 45 to 45, when Arkansas came back and scored. Ole Miss scored a TD in OT and then Arkansas had 4th and 25 from the 40. A pass, well short and the receiver literally simply threw the ball backwards as he was going down. It bounced...

    I can't believe how little mention there has been about LSU's stunning upset of the Sam Houston State Bearcats. The tigers slipped by by 56 points. Let's hope that they haven't neglected to focus on the University of Louisiana at Monroe this Saturday.

    ‘WHAT ON EARTH is that,” was a question muttered in offices, and, if Twitter is anything to go by — plenty of other places in Dublin this lunchtime. Why? Well, well, these two planes carried out a fly-past of Croke Park (and, by extension, the city) as part of this afternoon’s American Football event — and scared the bejaysus out of everyone. There were reports of car and house alarms being set off in the area. While one reader contacted us to say it sounded “like an earthquake” from Meath Street and was a “very frightening experience”. “The glass...

    North Carolina fired football coach Butch Davis on Wednesday, saying the past year of turmoil amid an NCAA investigation into improper benefits and academic misconduct was doing too much damage to the school's reputation. The school issued a statement announcing Davis' dismissal nine days before the start of preseason practice. Chancellor Holden Thorp said the decision was not prompted by any changes in the ongoing NCAA investigation but said he "lost confidence in our ability to come through this without harming the way people think of this institution."

    Like the Christmas holiday season, when December rolls around, the sports pages fill with columnist complaining about the lack of a college playoff for what used to be refer to as Division I football. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to see a playoff in Bowl Championship football. The problem is no one has come up with a system that would objectively seed teams for such a playoff. Without a plan, any playoff would be 7 teams plus Notre Dame every year. Proponents say just seed the top 8, 10, or 16 teams of the BCS. But If the...

    Does anyone want to advance to the BCS title game? Tim Tebow drove Florida for a winning field goal against Arkansas. Several contenders teetered on the edge of extinction Saturday. Florida survived Arkansas 23-20, and Texas snuck by Sam Bradford-less Oklahoma 16-13. Some fell off the edge. Ohio State was stunned by Purdue 26-18, and Virginia Tech was dumped by Georgia Tech 28-23. The first BCS standings of the season will be released Sunday afternoon. No matter how they look this week, we likely will end up with the winner of the SEC title game playing USC or Texas for...

As he has done throughout the season, Tebow used his black under-eye markings Thursday night to share Scripture, this time donning the most popular Bible verse in America. For many, the reference was simply a personal form...

Given all that, it was not exactly surprising that No. 2 Florida, trying to stay in the national championship hunt, was finally taken down by the SEC gantlet here Saturday night in Jordan-Hare Stadium. The Gators were surrounded by a howling crowd of 87,541, which revved up the Auburn defense in the second half as the No. 11 Tigers...

    WASHINGTON -- A playoff system could be used in major college football and the so-called "plus-one" model for determining a national champion should be reconsidered, the head of the Bowl Championship Series told Congress on Wednesday. When House Subcommittee on Commerce Trade and Consumer Protection Chairman Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., pointed out that lower divisions have playoffs for football, BCS coordinator Kevin Weiberg said: "It certainly, congressman, is possible to have a playoff at the Division I-A level, as well. We have chosen not to go down that path." Between jokes about needing tickets for bowl games and remarks about more...

And so is Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart, who threw five TD passes. Leinart, Reggie Bush and the rest of Pete Carroll's crew provided a scary glimpse of what was to come in 2005 when they wrapped up their second straight national title on that warm January night in Miami. This year's goal is three in a row, something that's never been done. ``It's...

USC improved its BCS grade in the standings released Monday to .9834, and padded its lead over the Sooners...

    The dream comes to Neil Parry often. In it, the San Jose State special teams player sprints down the field on a kickoff. He "blows up" the opponents' blocking wedge, breaking through to the ball carrier. When it is suggested that the perfect end to the dream sequence is him making the tackle, Parry says, "You're reading my mind. I think about that all the time, too, man." The significance of this nocturnal fantasy is that the 22-year old body of Neil Parry is not whole. Thirteen centimeters below his right knee, doctors removed his leg in late October 2000....
