Spurrier gone

ESPN, citing a Gainesville Sun story, confirmed that Steve Spurrier resigned today as UF’s coach, presumably to make himself available for NFL jobs. The Sun’s website is down at the moment (no doubt under the load), but I think I can hear Tony Dungy in Tampa checking his voicemail messages to see if he still […]

BCS Shambles

This is the central reason people loathe the BCS. Because it doesn’t account for the human spirit. Because it doesn’t let players decide things on the field with guts and nerve and timing.
