Winners and Losers of the Past in Week One College Football

 

College Football 2013 – Recapping Week 7

College Football,   after 5 weeks of waiting for the weekend of big upsets, we got it last week.

Going into play last CollegeFootball Week Sevenweek, there were 17 unbeaten teams in the Top 25.

After last nights butt whipping in Clemson, we are now down to 10 unbeatens in this week’s Top 25. 5-0 UCLA goes to Stanford and gets rocked. UCF goes to Louisville and comes from behind to upset Louisville. Clemson gets humiliated at home by FSU. On top of that, South Carolina goes to Tennessee and hands one to the Vols on a silver platter. Beat up Georgia goes to Vandy and blows a big lead to lose for the second week in a row. LSU goes to Ole Miss and blows their chance for a potential shot at the BCS title. Florida goes on the road to Missouri and shows us once again they have no offense. Shockingly, Missouri now controls the SEC East! Johnny Football couldn’t muster one last drive and Texas A&M bows to Auburn. Overall, some of the SEC heavys took themselves out of the big time national scene. After having 8 teams in the Top 25 last week, we may only see 6 this week.

Top 25 College Football Scores

The biggest loser of the day was the South Carolina Gamecocks. After falling behind early, they clearly took control of the game only to shank punts and take stupid penalties in the 4th quarter. Had they won, they most likely would have been ranked 5th this week setting up a HUGE game at Missouri this week. Clemson, layed an egg at home versus their nemesis FSU and took themselves out of any chance for a shot at the BCS crown. LSU, the highest ranked one loss team going into play yesterday, let their title hopes slip away with 3 interceptions before they knew what hit them and still had a chance for the win.

No. 1 Alabama 52 (7-0) , Arkansas 0 (3-5) Recap

College RankingsOnce again, at crunch time, their “D” let them down and now all they can hope for is a couple of upsets against ‘Bama and Texas A&M to hopefully get a meaningful bowl game. You know it’s bad enough when Louisville fan runs their mouth screaming for respect. What’s worse is when the head coach ( Charlie Strong ) says on national TV that they don’t get any respect from around the country. NOW you know why you don’t get any respect! You play in a weak conference and you don’t play any meaningful non conference games. Who really cares if you win the AAC conference now. Have a nice 11-1 season and thank you for playing. You’ll still get a $5,000,000 payday for a bowl game!

So, at the end of the day, we are still looking at a matchup between Alabama and Oregon for the BCS title. That’s the game everyone wants to see right now. What about a 7-0 FSU squad in the title game? What about a 7-0 Ohio State team having a shot? Baylor is destroying everyone and is 6-0. Why not them? The “U” is still undefeated, don’t they deserve a chance? Is anyone giving Missouri a chance? Here is the good news. The Crimson Tide still have Auburn ( their hated rival ), LSU, and the SEC Championship Game left on their schedule. Oregon has UCLA, Stanford, Oregon State, and the conference championship game ahead of them. FSU, now the media darling, has Miami, Florida, and the ACC Championship left to go. Missouri still has South Carolina, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Ole Miss, and the SEC Championship remains on their schedule. Ohio State still has Wyoming, Idaho, Bowling Green, N. Texas State, Troy, and Ohio Eastern AT&T School Of The Arts, remaining on their pathetic schedule.  Baylor has Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and OK State left to play. Could a one loss team get in over an undefeated team? So many games to go, so many possibilities, so many scenarios – that’s why we LOVE college football!

College Football Week Seven

College Football Trivia – The First Game

  • The first game of college football took place on November 6, 1869 between Rutgers University and neighboring Princeton. This first game didn’t really ressemble modern college football at all. Each team had 25 players and the ball could be moved only by kicking or batting it with the feet, hands or heads – there was no forward passing. The final score was 6 – 4 for Rutgers.
  • The forward pass was first introduced to college football in 1906. This addition to the game would lead to greater scoring and reduce the number of injuries caused by mass maulings and tackling.

A To Z Top 25:

  1. Alabama 7-0
  2. Oregon 7-0
  3. FSU 7-0
  4. Ohio State 7-0
  5. Miami 6-0
  6. Baylor 6-0
  7. Missouri 7-0
  8. Stanford 6-1
  9. Clemson 6-1
  10. UCLA 5-1
  11. Oklahoma State 5-1
  12. Oklahoma 6-1
  13. Louisville 6-1
  14. Texas Tech 7-0
  15. Texas A&M 5-2
  16. LSU 6-2
  17. Fresno State 6-0
  18. Virginia Tech 6-1
  19. South Carolina 5-2
  20. Auburn 6-1
  21. Northern Illinois 7-0
  22. Oregon State 6-1
  23. Michigan State 6-1
  24. Michigan 6-1
  25. Tie UCF 5-1, Wisconsin 5-2, Nebraska 5-1

Week 8 Key Games:

Tennessee @ #1 Alabama

#10 UCLA @ #2 Oregon

Penn State @ #4 Ohio State

#18 South Carolina @ #7 Missouri

#8 Stanford @ #22 Oregon State

#9 Clemson @ Maryland

#14 Texas Tech @ #12 Oklahoma

Vanderbilt @ #15 Texas A&M

If Week 8 is anything like the previous 2 weeks, we may be in for another wild ride. Several of these teams could completely eliminate themselves from national contention this week. If Clemson loses, UCLA loses, Oklahoma loses, the loser of the Stanford-Oregon State, Ohio State loses, and Missouri falls, they are all out of the BCS picture….for now.  What would happen to the polls if Alabama and Oregon get upset? My head is spinning with all the possibilities that are left to be played out!

College Football Trivia – Longest Streaks

  • A record, which might never be broken, is Prairie View College’s 80-game losing streak during the 1990s. During the 1991 season, the Panthers were outscored by an average margin of 56 – 4.
  • The longest winning streak in college football history is 47 games, set by the Oklahoma Sooners  between 1954 and 1957.

College Football Trivia – Worst Defeat

  • The most lopsided victory in college football history is the massive butt kicking the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets laid on Cumberland University in 1916. The Yellow Jackets showed no mercy in beating Cumberland by a score of 222 – 0! Cumberland had just one play for positive yards during the game, while Georgia Tech scored an unbelievable 32 touchdowns!

College Football Trivia – Top Teams

  • The University of Michigan has won more games than any other team in football. The Wolverines have won 842 games since they started playing in 1879.
  • Although Yale isn’t anywhere near a college football powerhouse now, the school has won the most National Championships, with 18. Yale’s last title was in 1927.

NCAA Football We’re Betting on Alabama

The arrival of the 2013 NCAA College football season began on August 29th.   Thus far,  the much anticipated season  has been  filled with high scoring shootouts, rivalry games, heralded school traditions, and triple options.

As we enter week five of the NCAA college football 2013 season,  I have already starting thinking ahead to the “big game.”   If I was “going to bet on college football right now,” I’d pick Alabama and Oregon to face off in the this seasons BCS National Championship game in Pasadena on January 06, 2014.

Ohio State And Boise State….A Tale Of 2 Big Time Football Programs

After reading all the publications, on line polls ( AP-Coaches-Sporting News-A To Z ), and listening to all of the Talking Heads, I can’t believe the love that Ohio State is receiving for the upcoming college football season.

Ohio State FootballSure, the Luckeyes have some talent, but their schedule is putrid and the Little 10 is a shell of what it used to be. With only 1 competitive road game all year ( the last game of the year vs. Michigan ), I got thinking about another school that gets criticized all the time for their “weak” schedule – Boise State.

Boise State has perhaps the second best coach in America right now, Chris Peterson. Since taking over the Broncos in 2006, Coach Peterson is 84-8! That is an astounding .913 winning percentage.

Imagine what he could do at a school like……let’s say LSU??? With that talent and his offensive genius/creativity, the Tigers might be rolling the Tide! Since 1999, Boise is 9-4 in bowl games with 2 BCS victories.

In 2006 they beat mighty Oklahoma and Big Game Bob 43-42 ( OT ) in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl – one of the greatest bowl games ever.

Boise State is also 49-4 since ’09 and has never finished higher than 4th in either the AP or coaches poll. So, here is a program often maligned for a soft schedule that does all the right things and never gets the national love. I thought the name of the game was to win?

On the other hand, we have Ohio State. Since 1999, they are 7-6 in bowl games ( 1-5 versus the SEC ) including 2 thrashings in the BCS National Championship games against Florida in ’07 and LSU in ’08. Since 2009, they have had 3 coaches – Jim Tressel, Luke Fickell, and now Urban ( I can’t take the pressure at Florida anymore ) Meyer.

In 2010, the Luckeyes finished 12-1 but vacated all of those wins, the conference championship, and the Sugar Bowl victory due to NCAA infractions.

The program has come under fire recently with all of the suspensions, arrests, and violations. While at Florida from 2005 to 2010, the Gator program ( under the leadership of Urban ) had 31 arrests. I am not even going to address Aaron Hernandez!

So, let me see if I understand this correctly. You play in a weak conference, play a weak schedule, and get no respect. Sounds like the continuing saga of Boise State. You play in a weak conference, play a weak schedule, and get voted #2 with the easiest path to the BCS National Championship. Sounds like this years Ohio State. I am really confused now!

All we can hope for at this point is that OSU beats up on those perennial powers Buffalo, Cal, Florida A&M, San Diego State, Indiana and gets voted #2 in the country. That way they will face an SEC powerhouse ( South Carolina or Georgia or Florida or Alabama or Texas A&M or LSU ) in the BCS National Championship game and get thrashed once again in front of millions of viewers, and the fraud known as Thee Ohio State Buckeyes, will get exposed once again!
