Saturday Open Thread

For the second straight week, there is no Carolina football on a Saturday. And after two weeks of top-10 matchups, this weekend’s college football schedule doesn’t offer a lot of spice.  But still there are storylines galore, in the ACC and beyond:

Can TOB keep the wolves at bay with a win over Clemson, or [...]

News and Notes: Earthquake Edition

Content has been light as of late. I was at the beach through the weekend then returned home only to fly out to Seattle and leave all of you to face things like earthquakes and hurricanes. And yes I was also on the west coast during the tornadoes in April. I promise to come back [...]

SEC: Not So Fast My Friend

False start.

Conference Realignment Not A Bang But A Whimper?

Looks that way though I do not imagine the Pac 11 is quite done yet.  For now it looks like the six BCS conferences will remain intact with some minor changes.

Updating The Implosion Of College Athletics As We Know It

Let me toss these out here more so as talking points for discussion than anything else. As of today here is what is going on:

Nebraska is poised to join the Big Ten.

Colorado has received an offer to join the Pac 10 and accepted it.

As someone pointed out on Twitter, the Pac 10 [...]

Butch Davis Watch 2009

And here I thought we were going to make it through this season without having to do this dance. As you probably know, Charlie Weis will soon be a consultant for some playoff bound NFL team(probably New England) and the self deluded folks in South Bend will be on the prowl for a new head [...]

Jayhawk Football And Basketball Players Do Not Like Each Other

ESPN is reporting that members of the Kansas basketball and football teams have been involved in multiple altercations on campus with each other since last night.  The first incident resulted in guard Tyshawn Taylor dislocating his thumb.  Taylor for his part has been extremely helpful to police by admitting on his Facebook page that he [...]

Things I Am Thankful For…

…after watching the BCS Championship.

I am thankful that should UNC win the NCAA Championship game on April 6th that there will no debate as to who is the #1 team in the nation.

I am thankul that following the ACC Tournament I do not have to wait 50-plus days without basketball to watch while [...]

At Least Ron Cherry Never Did This

This was during the LSU-SCAR game Saturday night where an SEC official inexplicably lays a shoulder into SCAR QB Stephen Garcia.  And for anyone who thinks it was an accident watch as he shuffles his feet to size Garcia up then delivers the blow.  It will be interesting to see how the SEC responds [...]
