  • SEC-OND TO NO ONE

    The Southeastern Conference must think it invented football. Winning five straight Bowl Championship Series titles, and seven out of the 13 played, can give you a superiority complex. Never mind how much fortune, along with will and skill, was involved....
  • Local focus in football recruiting pays off for Randy Edsall's Terps

    Local focus in football recruiting pays off for Randy Edsall's Terps
    One of the worst seasons in Maryland football history made no difference to Mike Williams. The Terps’ 2-10 campaign last fall didn’t bother DeAndre Lane, either. All that mattered to Williams, a lineman from Archbishop Spalding, and Lane, a...
  • Maryland's Crowton eager to show off his offense

    Gary Crowton extends his right hand to display the damage. The wrist had to be stabilized with a plate and 11 screws after two players careened into him as he coached at an LSU practice several years ago. He also suffered a concussion and lost a few...
  • Oklahoma is team to beat this season

    Oklahoma is team to beat this season
    It's hard to argue with results. The Southeastern Conference has won five straight Bowl Championship Series titles and clearly is the most dominant conference in college football. So it would make perfect sense that my prediction for this year's BCS...
  • Which 2 teams will be in the BCS title game?

    Alabama vs. Oklahoma Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune We already know one of the teams that will get there. Sort of. For five straight years, the survivor of the SEC title game has played for — and won — all the marbles. Who will that be?...
  • One BCS buster busted

    TCU can't get to the Big East fast enough. The Horned Frogs leave the Mountain West next season, which is looking good after their 50-48 loss to Baylor on Friday. If they were in the Big East this season, they'd still have a shot at a BCS bowl. The Big...
  • Longing for a rosy result

    Texas may or may not end up in the Pacific-12 Conference. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott tried to lure the Longhorns last year before his dream for a 16-team super league was squashed — or maybe deferred. Texas once held a big stack of expansion...
  • Tigers are 'D' real deal

    If defense wins championships, LSU is headed to New Orleans. The Tigers' young, in-your-face defense has been impressive in wins over Oregon and Mississippi State. Surviving the rest of the schedule won't be easy, starting with a trip to West Virginia...
  • What next for Big 12, Big East teams?

    Short-term solution Jeff Otterbein Hartford Courant So much is still in flux in the ever-changing world of conference realignment. The Big East has already lost two teams, Syracuse and Pitt, to the ACC. Certainly Connecticut and Rutgers from the Big...
  • Not so fast, Big 12 powers

    Don't mess with … Pullman? These are fascinating days for purveyors of dark comedy and comeuppance. Last year, Texas wrecked what was then the Pac-10 Conference's plan to expand to 16 teams when the Longhorns reneged in the 11th hour. Tuesday...
  • Navy considers possible football move to Big East

    Navy considers possible football move to Big East
    Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk has worked at schools in big conferences, such as Syracuse, and has spent the past decade helping bring the football program in Annapolis back to national prominence as one of the few independents remaining in the...
  • Ranking the commissioners

    David Stern, NBA Still The Man, though the NBA has hit some potholes. Stern imposed the lockout to overhaul an economic system he says led 23 of 30 teams to lose money. Barring a quick agreement, the opening of training camps in early October will be...
