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

Deshazor Everett's Name And His Interception To Beat Alabama Are…

As subplots go, the Alabama-Texas A&M game had an unexpected one from the end of the first quarter through the tense final minute: an errant extra point. Up until the decisive few seconds, when a Bama penalty on an Aggies punt killed the dregs of game clock, there lingered the question of whether the huge early… » 11/10/12 8:05pm 11/10/12 8:05pm

Arizona's Three Losses Are The Worst Three Losses In College Football

643 Rushing Yards And 10 Touchdowns Make For A Pretty Solid Birthday

What was your eighteenth birthday like? Mine was my first day of college: After four hours by car (we got lost), uncomfortable goodbyes, and eons of totally disorienting orientation activities, I went to a party and lost in beer pong, without hitting a cup, to two girls. I don't specifically recall how my teammate and… » 9/15/12 11:00am 9/15/12 11:00am

College Football Preview: In-State Rivalries Take Center Stage


Texas beat Texas A&M 49-9 yesterday. They're now 11-1. But unless you were in Texas you had no idea this game was happening. Even I didn't think to check this score until late Thursday night. That's because I spent Thanksgiving with family. Included in part of my day was a trip to Ford Field to watch the Titans… » 11/28/08 12:00pm 11/28/08 12:00pm
