The Gamecocks face the Gators in what might be the biggest game in school history. If South Carolina wins and Florida beats Tennessee on Dec. 1, the Gamecocks will become the first team other than the Gators or Volunteers to win the SEC East Championship. ESPN announced on Monday that it will nationally televise Florida’s […]

The new BCS Rankings have been released. Florida only moved up one spot – from 8th to 7th – after destroying Vandy this weekend. With the games against Tennessee and FSU looking to count for quite a bit in the computer rankings (and the “Quality Wins” category) I really hope the boys don’t have a […]

Ole Miss

The more I see and read about Ole Miss, the more impressed I am. They won at LSU on Saturday, no easy feat for any visitor. Watching Eli Manning, he reminds me a lot of Peyton as a freshman at UT – sometimes shaky, but never hesitant to put the ball in there. He’ll turn […]

Stopping the Run

Gainesville Sun writer Robbie Andreu has a piece today that opens with these lines: “There is no secret, no mystery anymore. It’s become common knowledge that there’s a way to knock the fun right out of the Fun ‘n’ Gun. Stop the run, of course.” Well, yes and no. There have been, as far I […]

Read. Learn.

I found this excellent essay about writing computer code at evhead. The author makes several very good points about reading and writing in a programming language. I feel a little bit better about my own programming after reading it. When I dusted off PoolPlayer (my football pool manager app) last month I was tempted to […]

PETA asks USC to drop its team nickname, citing glorification of cruelty, violence “It’s a safe bet that officials at the University of South Carolina would never dream of calling their athletic teams the Dogfighters, the Wifebeaters, the Looters or the Road-Ragers,” Phelps said. What does she suggest as an alternative? “The Gym Socks or […]

Rankings answers the question, “How are the college football rankings determined?” I’m completely amazed that the Daytona Beach News-Journal (The Dunkel Index) actually has a say in who plays in college football’s National Championship game. My mom used to work at the News-Journal! Here are the links to the rankings systems used in calculating the […]

Not So Good for BCS

Steve Spurrier is still looking for improvement. “We can play better, and hopefully we will,” he said. He pointed out that of the five teams Florida has defeated heading into Saturday’s game against Auburn, only one – Marshall – currently has a winning record. “The teams we’ve beaten – I don’t know how good they’ll […]

Fan Support

I gotta say that Death Valley didn’t live up to it’s reputation. Here is a picture that you might think was taken 2 hours before kick off. It wasn’t. This is at the start of the third quarter. The LSU football team never gave up on the field but the fans threw in the towel […]

Inside the BCS

Even though they have won each game convincingly, the schedule is currently killing the Hurricanes in the BCS. Miami’s four opponents to date are a combined 1-14 against Division I-A competition — the lone win coming against Buffalo. Because the formula only considers the games that have been played, the Canes have one of the […]

It’s so good to be home! It just doesn’t feel right anywhere else ….

The No. 2-ranked University of Florida football team that will play at LSU on Saturday has outscored its four opponents this season 200-30. That’s just one of many things about the Gators that impresses LSU coach Nick Saban. “This team we play this week is probably as good of an offensive team that anyone has […]

Fresno State (5-0, 2-0 WAC) rolled up 568 total yards while earning its 17th straight home victory — the third-longest streak in the nation.

September 29th, 2001 @ 7:04 pm

The Bulldogs, who came into the game ranked first in the nation in pass defense, allowed 507 yards through the air. “When you play a team that blitzes like that, and you get in the shotgun, you can have a chance to score a lot,” Spurrier said. “We scored a lot. We left some out […]
