  • College football top 25 countdown: No. 10 Northwestern

    Thirty years ago (1983) Stanford and Northwestern put their brainy football heads together to go a combined 3-19. And no one blinked, cared, or was the least bit surprised, because mediocrity then was considered the price to be paid for academic...
  • College football top 25 countdown: No. 11 Texas

    This ranking may be more intuitive hunch than it is rooted in statistical study. The way I see it, Halley's comet comes around every 75 or 76 years and Texas football comes around every four. Texas has appeared in the Bowl Championship Series title...
  • Pac-12 provides more late-night drama and controversy

    The Pac-12 continued its (Eastern) time-honored tradition of playing host to some of the most compelling football ever played after midnight in Altoona. Anybody can roll out great games on CBS in broad daylight, but the Pac-12 excels at impasses with...
  • Two upstanding coaches will be standing on sidelines at Rose Bowl

    This season's college bowl schedule is reminiscent of how it used to be in the last months of the year in pro golf, or the last five minutes of an NBA rout. Garbage time. ESPN fills airtime and sells ads, but there is no compelling reason to watch...

    Although the Wisconsin Badgers slammed the Purdue Boilermakers 41 to 10 Saturday, Sept. 21, the 80,000 fans watching the game at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison will most remember an event that occurred during an extended time out. As often happens at...
  • Play it forward: Week ahead in college football

    Five things to watch this week in college football. 1: Rutgers at Louisville on Thursday offers undefeated Louisville a decent test in a season where the Cardinals' weak schedule could cost them a shot at the national title. Rutgers has seen both ends...
  • Virginia's run of good offense comes to screeching halt in loss to Wisconsin

    CHARLOTTESVILLE — If you've seen the boxscore and/or clips — the word highlights does not apply — or, heaven forbid, endured the entire broadcast, the following will strike you as pure fiction. Virginia and Wisconsin entered their ACC-...

    Clearing hurdles no obstacle for Riley
    Andrew Riley agreed with a laugh that any race that needs more than the straightaway might as well be a marathon as far as he is concerned. That's why the University of Illinois 110-meter high hurdles champion never has tried the 400 hurdles. "I don't...

    Bowl predictions: Separating the winners from losers
    You can try this cold turkey, but picking bowl-game winners is my job. While you're at work solving world problems, I'm doing full time what you do in your spare time. Some years are better than others. The general rule is to look for motivation in each...
