Tebow, McCoy, Bradford have Florida, Texas, Oklahoma 1-2-3

Florida has the fewest question marks of the three going into the season so I don't really have a problem with these rankings. The loss of Percy Harvin will hurt UF more than a lot of people think BUT Texas has had to replace almost their entire front four on defense (and has no dependable TE) and OU had to replace four o-lineman, two WR's, and two starting safeties.

I agree....the coaches poll reaks of favortism and uninformed decision making (since coaches aren't capable of watching every single team and/or just have someone else fill out their ballots.) Every poll differs in some way, sometimes drastically. IIRC, the recent sports illustrated poll has Florida, USC, OU, UT in that order. Pre-season polls are just for bragging rights anyway.

OU Fans Launch Air Attack on Texas

The plain truth, mickster, is that Bob Stoops knew what he needed to do to work the system. After OU took their loss at the hands of Texas, Stoops took a step back and realized that if he wanted to have any chance in hell, he needed to run the score up in every game and pray for a Texas loss. It is the same thing Stoops always does when he has the talent to and doesn't care whose throat he steps on in the process. This guy is the most classless coach in the nation and since the media tends to like him, he gets a free pass almost every time. Say what you will, sooner, but when Stoops has his first string offense in the game with two minutes left in a 30 point blowout-still throwing the ball-he is trying to run up the score.

Bob Stoops is no saint, my friend, contrary to what the Sooner nation thinks. Oklahoma learned the hard way that they did not belong in the national title game in 2003 or 2004 and they certainly do not deserve it this year.

I find it amusing that OU doesn't want a rematch with Texas this year. Texas had been clamoring for a rematch on neutral site but Stoops is having no part of that. Why tempt fate twice right? OU's best chance to win a national title is to not play Texas again.

OU Fans Launch Air Attack on Texas

I am not disappointed with the way this season played out for Texas. It would have been nice to see them play for another national title but UT managed a division co-champion campaign after being picked to finish 3rd in the big 12 south. I was figuring three losses for sure, maybe even four. In my opinion, the reason Texas FANS are complaining is because the 'horns were overtaken by a hated rival(the players aren't the ones complaining about making a BCS bowl).....and the trash talk will not subside until October of next year. It should be a slug-fest, to be sure. For the record, Mack Brown was campaigning. At no time did he ever "whine". He was just doing what every other coach in his position would have done. The whining would have started if all of Stoops' sixty-point efforts would not have been enough to overtake Texas.

9 years of Ryder Cup angst ends

Great job by Azinger and all the rookies that played a big part in the win but for my money, the image I'll most remember is Boo riding his driver off the tee box. Almost fell off the couch laughing at that one.

The Hoser's NFL Picks, Week One 2008

" Houston (+7) at PITTSBURGH O/U 43.5: Every year, hope springs anew for fans in the Houston area and then the Texans are forced to actually start playing. Steelers 26, Houston 20"

Ouch! Thanks for the high, hard one to all Texans fans. Then again, it wouldn't be funny if it wasn't true. I hear Houston is thinking considering signing Tatum Bell to shore up the running game. Thank God for college football....

Fines will be imposed for clear cases of flopping:

To all the Spurs haters,I agree Manu flops alot (i get especially irrited when he drives the lane, heaves up a prayer and, whether he makes it or not, immediately put his hand on his mouth like he got popped) but there are players that are plenty worse. kirilenko comes to mind as well as derek fisher. CONSPIRACY THEORY ALERT: All the flopping in the world doesn't matter because the NBA decides before the game starts who is going to win. It's been pretty obvious to me that, since the playoffs have started, the NBA is going to do anything to get the lakers/celtics into the finals so they can try to rekindle the good old days from magic/larry. How many times must I watch kobe duck his shoulder and bull through a defender to get a basket and not get called for charging? Or how about Duncan getting knocked on his ass while making a shot and not getting an "and one" call. Better yet, the jersey grabbing celtics that seem to never get called for anything they do wrong. The NBA is the perfect opportunity to pull of this stunt because the referees are in a perfect position to add/take points off the board and virtually control every aspect of a game including killing momentum. David Stern is as crooked any as commisioner in pro sports. He fixed the NBA draft in 1986 for christs sake, does any one really think he would turn a blind eye pre determining games if it was going to make a little extra money. and for anyone who thinks my opinionis wrong or that it's just down right bullshit i give you tim doneghy(or however you spell his name. I d not believe he was the only NBA ref to pull this crap off and he already he admitted he would ref games in his favor. Instead of trying to punish floppers I say do something so that the officiating is more even.

Witness This! Pierce and LeBron Duel; Celtics Advance To Conference Finals

Well if pierce had done more of this phenominal scoring in game 6, I wouldn't have had to hit the blackjack table in Vegas to try to win back the money I lost on the Celtics. Sadly, the table's were about as kind to me as the fighting lebrons that night.

Roger Clemens

OK, back to the subject at hand. Unless I'm mistaken, didn't clemens state in a video on youtube that he was never injected with anything, steroids or otherwise, by anyone. I've always been a huge Clemens fan but if his youtube video states that and he is now telling 60 minutes he WAS, in fact, injected but it was just B12 and lidocaine, it makes him look like a fantastic moron.

For The Love of Sport: A Look Back

Since it wasn't mentioned in the article, I feel obligated to pimp my Colorado Buffaloes win over then #3 Oklahoma. Clearly not the biggest sports story of the year worldwide......but it was for me.

Tim Tebow, happy to be a Gator. Happy to be the Heisman winner.

They should just rename it the ESPN trophy. Seemingly every time I turned on ESPN, the college analysts ( and some anchors) were touting Tebow. It seems like they do this in years that there is no clear cut favorite. It doesn't matter to me if Tebow scored 100 td's, a QB shouldn't win college footballs highest honor if he can't translate his good stats into wins. Seeing as how the QB touches that ball on ever down, he should be winning games. Besides that, he is clearly not the most important player on that team.....they won a national title last year in the same system with Leak at QB (only 1 loss, by the way). I feel like McFadden should have won. His number were better than last year, his best game of the year came against the #1 team in the nation, and since he took turns at QB I think it's pretty clear he was the most important ( and best) player at Arkansas.

Police hunt for laser-toting fan.

I didn't see the match but my guess would be the "sales projection" variety of laser. They are easier to smuggle in as opposed to, say, a (excuse me....THE) death star. One might have to have mighty large pockets for that.......

No Place Like Home

"Football is life in Argentina—especially for Boca Juniors fans. The diehard supporters have earned the nickname “La Doce”—the 12th Man." Texas A&M is getting their lawsuit ready as we speak.

For The Love of Sport: Rivalry

Both teams only have one conference loss so the winner of the game is the outright winner of the Big Ten and, thus, would earn the automatic berth for the BCS bowl.

Jimmy Kimmel Banned From Monday Night Football

Funny that they would ban Kimmel for his comments but allow Tony Kornheiser to go on air and allege that Eli Manning's last name was the only reason he was drafted in the top slot. The exact quote, I believe, was; " Does anyone really think Eli Manning would have gotten drafted #1 overall if his last name wasn't Manning?" Ron Jaworski was very quick to correct him but I would think that someone who is supposed to be a sportswriter by trade would have a little more knowledge about, you know, sports and stuff. Anyone who saw Eli Manning play at Ole Miss knows what he was able to accomplish with a very mediocre team and, therefore, knows why he was drafted first overall.
