    Monday’s Rewind and Look Forward (Dec. 3)

    By Josh Adams -

    AlabamaWell fans, we have reached the end of the 2012 college football regular season. This year has had a variety of teams occupying the top spot in college football and Notre Dame ended up #1 when the music stopped. The Irish will take on the SEC Champion Alabama Crimson Tide in the BCS National Championship Game that is sure to be one of the most watched in history. While Alabama has one loss, other one loss teams like Kansas State, Florida and Oregon will play in lower tier BCS bowl games. If there was any year for a playoff system in college football, this would be the one. Let’s do a hypothetical final four projection and see if we end up with the same BCS Championship game.Read Full Story »

    Monday’s Rewind and Look Forward (Nov. 26)

    By Josh Adams -

    Theo RiddickThe regular season is over and the SEC has shown once again why it is by far the best conference in college football. With Florida’s convincing victory over Florida State in Tallahassee, it put the Gators in the position to possibly play in the national championship if Notre Dame would’ve fell to USC. While the Irish played dream killer to the Gators BCS title hopes Saturday night, the SEC will have Georgia or Alabama playing Notre Dame for the whole enchilada on January 7th.

    Here’s the thing, they’re are several deserving teams that could be in Georgia or Alabama’s place. The farce about the way the BCS is set up is it’s not how you lose, it’s when you lose. Take Oregon for instance, they lost to Stanford late in the year. Read Full Story »

    Game of the Week – (1) Notre Dame at USC

    By Josh Adams -

    Notre Dame-USCAll eyes turn to Hollywood Saturday night as the long time rivals Notre Dame Fighting Irish battle the reeling USC Trojans. These two programs have engaged in some historic games throughout their rivalry. Usually, one or both of these teams are highly ranked and this game has national title implications. This year is no different, but it has bucked the recent trend of USC being the team that is ranked.

    The Irish have put together a remarkable run in 2012 and a win over USC would propel them into the BCS Championship. The only thing that stands in their way to glory is a USC team that went into this season ranked #1, but have had several disappointing losses and have put their head coach’s job in jeopardy. While USC may not be as deep with talent due to scholarship reductions, they have some dangerous weapons on offense that could give the stout Irish defense all they can handle.Read Full Story »

    Monday’s Rewind and Look Forward (Nov. 19)

    By Josh Adams -

    Kevin HoganIt must be tough to be a travel agency in either Manhattan, Kansas or Eugene, Oregon this week. After Baylor and Stanford all but ruined the Wildcats and Ducks chances of playing in the BCS Championship game, it’s anyone’s guess who will play for all the marbles in January. The SEC is big-time back in the national championship picture, and the winner of their conference championship is all set to play in the title game. Barring an unforeseen upset by Auburn or Georgia Tech this weekend, Alabama and Georgia will be one of the most anticipated conference championship games in the history of college football.

    Notre Dame is #1. This would’ve been unthinkable at the start of the season, and they were dead to rights against Pitt earlier this year.Read Full Story »

    Game of the Week – (13) Stanford at (2) Oregon

    By Josh Adams -

    Oregon-StanfordWith Alabama failing to win last week against Texas A&M, the door opened for Kansas State and Oregon to play in the BCS Championship Game. Both the Wildcats and the Ducks have hard conference games this week, with K-State playing Baylor and the Stanford Cardinals traveling up to Eugene and facing off against the high-flying Ducks offense. Both games will be a challenge and it wouldn’t shock anybody if one or both of these teams were upset.

    Baylor is looking more and more like a trap game to me for Kansas State, but Stanford will be hungry with Rose Bowl dreams and will attempt to stymie the rushing and passing attack of the Ducks.Read Full Story »
