Michigan State Beats OSU, Saves Us From One Final BCS Controversy

Michigan State beat Ohio State 34-24 in the Big Ten championship and will go to the Rose Bowl. Above all else, this saves us the grief of having to listen to an aggrieved SEC or BIG Ten fan base had it come down to an unbeaten Ohio State or Auburn against Florida State. It's going to be Auburn and everyone… » 12/08/13 12:37am 12/08/13 12:37am

Ohio State Reacts To Auburn Upset Over Alabama

Whether Ohio State will actually get to, or deserves to play in, the BCS Championship is a debate we only have to endure for a few more months. Nevertheless, OSU is undefeated and Alabama no longer is. The Buckeyes are in a better position than they were when they barely survived Michigan and they're pumped up. » 11/30/13 8:25pm 11/30/13 8:25pm

The BCS Championship On Twitter: Here's When Katherine Webb Became More…

After weeks of buildup, the BCS championship game turned out to be a total dud, with Alabama stomping Notre Dame 42-14 in a game that somehow was even less close than the final score would indicate. Despite the blowout, an unlikely star emerged. No, not Eddie Lacey—Katherine Webb. » 1/14/13 3:10pm 1/14/13 3:10pm

Why Does ESPN.com Insist On Referring To Bowls By Their Full, Corporate…

Reader Reggie pointed something out to us the other day: ESPN.com writers have a habit of referring to the various bowl games by their full, awkward, sponsored names. This is not how normal people write (unless it's to mock), so we went looking for examples. They were not hard to find. » 1/09/13 3:00pm 1/09/13 3:00pm

Forbes's 2012 List Of The Most Valuable Teams In College Football Reads…

Forbes's latest best guess at the most valuable college football programs is out, and if you're a Texas fan, congratulations: Your slavering devotion to the Death Star of the Big 12 has paid off once again. You're number one! Granted, you're in the "also receiving votes" category in the AP's poll of on-the-field… » 12/22/12 3:25pm 12/22/12 3:25pm

Alabama Barely Beats Georgia For SEC Title, Right To Demolish Irish In…

Your national title game will be SEC semifinal champion Alabama against Notre Dame, which in a just alternate universe just got piss-pounded by Ohio State in the Big Ten title game and ceded its title game slot to Florida. In this universe, though, Notre Dame spent the afternoon licking its chops as Alabama and… » 12/01/12 8:39pm 12/01/12 8:39pm

Losses By Oregon, Kansas State Ensure All-SEC Title Game

Welp, it happened. Kansas State, once thought unbeatable†, loosed the SI-cover-jinx-aided mother of all bedshits Saturday. Call it the revenge of the Southwest* Conference: Texas A&M downs the No. 1 Crimson Tide last week, Baylor (editor's note: LOL) conks the Wildcats this week. This is agonizingly disappointing for… » 11/18/12 1:58am 11/18/12 1:58am

Lane Kiffin Somehow Has Too Much Integrity For The Coaches' Poll

Earlier this month, the results of the first Coaches' Poll were released. No surprises—LSU first, Alabama second, USC third. In the preseason, the poll is useless except as a talking point, and anonymous unless a coach wants to volunteer that information. Arizona's Rich Rodriguez didn't mind, admitting that he had USC… » 8/13/12 11:00am 8/13/12 11:00am
