Welcome Back, College Football

Where, oh where have you been?

College football returned last night and in case you don’t believe it, I have the pictures:

The Hurricanes are ready for 2008

Georgia Tech
Georgia Tech coaches suggested smoking before taking the field

Jack Crowe
Are you freaking kidding me?!?!

Touchdown Gamecocks
TOUCHDOWN SOUTH CAROLINA (finally, after suffering through four interceptions)

Hurricane Hotties
If loving college football is wrong, I don’t want to be right

Touchdown Wake Forest
Breakdancing is not an allowable touchdown celebration

And just like that, we are that much closer to the BCS Championship. In case you missed it, after an unimpressive offensive start to the season, South Carolina stomped NC State, Wake Forest crushed Baylor, Georgia Tech hammered Jacksonville State, Stanford survived Oregon State, the Hurricanes of Miami beatdown Charleston Southern, and Vanderbilt is above .500 after beating Miami of Ohio.

There a whole lot of football to be played this weekend, so prepare yourself so you won’t burn out before Saturday night is done. Don’t forget, Louisville/Kentucky is on Sunday, making it a wall-to-wall weekend of college football.

Welcome back. You were sorely missed.

Dancin’ At The Sweet 16: Texas – Stanford


Our Call
The Lopez twins or A.J. Abrams and D.J. Augustin? That’s what this game comes down to. Can Texas withstand Stanford’s superior inside play? Can Stanford find anyone to neutralize Augustin and A.J. Abrams. Who wins out here? Size or guard play? You have to factor in the region they are playing in and when you do, it appears as if Texas has the upper hand. Although, I’m skeptical whether or not the Longhorns have an answer for the Lopez recursion.

Stanford – 80, Texas – 75

Intentional Upset: Sun Devils Top The Cardinal

What do you do if you are down by double-digits, at home to a higher ranked team? Well, if you are Arizona State, you fight back behind the play of a freshman and beat them in overtime. And that’s exactly what they did.

Led by James Harden’s 23 points, the Sun Devils (16-7, 6-5 in the Pac-10) rallied from a late double-digit deficit to beat the 7th-ranked Stanford Cardinal (20-4, 9-3) in overtime by the score of 72-68. The Cardinal were led by the Lopez twins who combined for 46 points and 14 rebounds; not enough to overcome the Sun Devils late come-back that put the game in overtime.

For the Sun Devils, this win keeps their NCAA Tournament hopes alive, solidifying their place on the proverbial bubble. If they can finish strong, expect ASU to be dancing in March.
