Gators

Surprising absolutely nobody, the preseason USA Today/Coaches Poll for college football came out today, and guess what? The Florida Gators are the top team in the land. Now if, with the Gators coming off a BCS Championship, this revelation does actually surprise you, you probably haven’t been paying attention. Combine the lead image with another good recruiting class, a touch of Tim Tebow, a dash of Urban Meyer and Brandon Spikes, as well as more roster talent than most coaches would know what do with and you have all the reasons you need to know why the Gators are the number one team in the land heading into the regular season.

The Rich Get Richer (National Signing Day)

Bryce Brown

There’s still a few weeks until the next season of college football starts, so to pass the time, we get to enjoy National Signing Day, otherwise known as the day the Rich get Richer. Which blue-chip player is going where and all that. The top-ranked player in the country is Bryce Brown, who has given a verbal commitment to the University of Miami. This, however, does not mean he’s going to play for the Hurricanes, because until he signs that LOI (letter of intent), Brown is fair game. Apparently, the recruiting process has become so taxing on Brown’s family, they aren’t even in town, allowing Bryce to escape the circus.

This also means, however, Hurricanes fans may want to curtail any premature Bryce Brown celebrations until he puts his John Hancock on the LOI.

This is just an example of the type of fun college football fans can expect this afternoon. There are a ton of sites covering the festivities, including ESPN, Rivals and Scout.com. Some folks think Alabama is a shoe-in for the top-ranked recruiting class, regardless of who signs where. Others are just enjoying the process.

We’ll revisit today’s college football fun — hey, it’s just like the NFL Draft, but with no Mel Kiper — and pick through the remains of wreckage. Will Bama get the overall top-ranked class or will Saban be defeated by the forces of non-Bama influence?

Quan Cosby’s Game Winner


Now that’s the way you end your collegiate career: By scoring the game-winning touchdown that catapults your team to a Fiesta Bowl victory. Not only that, but your touchdown puts Texas in the thick of the National Championship decision and it goes a long way towards relieving any hard feelings leftover from the Michael Crabtree incident.

Thank God It’s Saturday: Penn State and Ohio State

Ohio State and Penn State

Lots of great match ups this weekend, including the headliner of Penn State at Ohio State. It seems everyone wants Penn State to beat the Buckeyes in order to keep them from boring up the BCS Championship game — except for OSU fans, of course. Looking at this game from strictly a historical perspective, even though Penn State has been playing lights-out football this season, they don’t do well in Columbus.

In fact, they haven’t won there since 1978 and Joe Pa has an overall losing record against Ohio State (5-7-0). Should we expect more of the same tomorrow night? Well, if karma has anything to do with it, Penn State will probably get smashed by the Buckeyes and if they do, I’m going to blame this douche bag guy.

Thank God It’s Saturday – Texas and Missouri

Texas and Missouri

Texas and Mizzou headline a great weekend of college football as Chase Daniel and Jeremy Maclin head down to Austin in an attempt to knock the high-riding Longhorns down a peg or two. While Texas is coming off that huge win against Oklahoma, the Tigers are trying to recover from their surprising defeat at the hands of Oklahoma State. Mental states aside, this game has the making of a PS3-style shoot-out with both teams featuring explosive, explosive offenses.

Thank God It’s Saturday – Red River Fun

Red River Shootout

Lots of good games this weekend and the Red River Shootout kicks things off. Stoops versus Brown. McCoy versus Bradford. The Longhorn defense versus the Oklahoma offense. Hot co-eds from Oklahoma versus hot co-eds from Austin, Texas. Could you ask for anything more from a football game? There will be so much talent on the field in Dallas tomorrow, people might confuse it for an SEC game.
