2009-2010 Fiesta Bowl Preview

Smart move, BCS. You don’t want one non-BCS to show the flaws in the system, let alone two…so let’s make potential busters play one another. Lame. I would have loved to see Boise State or TCU play Florida. Both teams deserved a chance to really showcase their talents, like Boise State did in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl when Boise State beat Oklahoma at the last second. Then again, to be honest, I’m pretty excited to see them play one another. Other than the National Championship Game, I think this is going to be the best of the BCS bowls. Both teams are unbeaten, which makes this the first time two teams with perfect records have met in a bowl game other than the title game. So, even though it would have been nice to see the... [Read more]

2009-2010 Sugar Bowl Preview

This isn’t the season that Florida wanted. This isn’t the season Cincinnati expected. Yet here we are, on New Year’s Eve, the night before Florida and Cincinnati meet one another on the fifty-yard line in the Sugar Bowl. Image: Newscom It’s easy to say that Florida will win this game, but I wouldn’t be so sure of that. The Bearcats deserve to be in this game as much – maybe more – than the Gators. It’s been an uphill battle from the start for them, but they’re coming into the game without a real coach, since Brian Kelly left for Notre Dame. Of course, Florida isn’t much better off. Urban Meyer will be at the game, but he’s on his way out the door (whether or not he’ll come... [Read more]

2009-2010 Rose Bowl Preview

It’s weird to see a team other than USC playing in the Rose Bowl. This year, the Trojans weren’t even close to being good enough, so the game will feature a match up of Oregon and Ohio State. Oregon is ranked #7 and Ohio State is ranked #8, so on paper, this may seem like a pretty good game. Personally, I think that will extend beyond “on paper.” I’m a Big Ten fan, as some of you may know, but I’m definitely on the Michigan side of the Ohio State vs. Michigan rivalry. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Penn State fan to the soul, but if I have to choose one team to cheer for, it’d be Michigan. There are few teams I like less than Ohio State. USC is one of them, but since they aren’t playing... [Read more]

Congratulations, Freddie Barnes

Bowling Green’s Freddie Barnes hit a new high during this year’s Humanitarian Bowl. You may have never heard his name if you aren’t a Bowling Green fan, but maybe you should know it. This wide receiver set a new NCAA record for most catches in a single season. Freddie Barnes, Image: Newscom With his fifth catch during the first semester of the team’s bowl game, Barnes hit 143 receptions, surpassing the 142-catch Division I record set by Houston’s Manny Hazard in 1989. With his 144th catch during the second quarter of the game, Barnes surpassed NCAA records for all divisions. The previous record was held by Nick Smart from Division II’s Southwest Baptist in 2007. Both Hazard and Smart hit their records in 11... [Read more]

Texas Tech Suspends Mike Leach

Players are commonly suspended in the weeks leading up to a bowl game, due to rowdy or criminal behavior, but it is rare that a team goes to a bowl with their coach under suspension. That’s exactly what’s going to happen for this year’s Alamo Bowl, however, as Texas Tech has suspended head coach Mike Leach. Mike Leach, talking on Dec. 10 about his excitement for the Alamo Bowl. Image: Newscom The suspension comes after player Adam James and his family have come forward with allegations that Leach didn’t handle an injury properly. James sustained a concussion on December 16, and when examined the next day, doctors told him not to practice because of the concussion and an elevated heart rate. According to the James family,... [Read more]
