    Bracket breakdown: NCAA sleepers, Cinderellas and more
    The 2011 NCAA tournament officially tips off tonight with a pair of play-in games -- I'm still scratching my head at UAB and Clemson playing for a No. 12 seed -- but the bracket bonanza for most pools begins Thursday afternoon with the Round of 64. That...

    Conference realignment won't stop Army-Navy rivalry
    As the college football landscape shifts toward super conferences that have washed away century-old rivalries, two schools at the bedrock of the sport's foundation remain as rigid about their continued alliance as their respective student bodies who...
  • Gates takes long road to Tour

    LaQUINTA, Calif. — After a couple of years of walking under ladders and having black cats cross his path, golfer Bobby Gates took firm hold of a four-leaf clover Monday. He shot a final-round 66 in the PGA Tour qualifying event at PGA West's Jack...
  • Pirate act heads to Pullman

    SEATTLE — Mike Leach had just gotten the Texas Tech coaching job in 1999 when he and an assistant coach flew from Lubbock down to Odessa to recruit a decorated receiver named Roy Williams. "Amazing-looking kid," said Manny Matsakis, the former...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Chris Dufresne's college football rankings

    Last week's ranking in parentheses 1. Alabama (3-0): Fans asked to cheer but not go "Hog Wild" on Arkansas on Saturday. (1) 2. Oklahoma (2-0): Perk in Bob Stoops' new contract allows unlimited use of school's private tractor. (4) 3. LSU (3-0): Whoa...
  • Tigers, Tide best of best

    There's LSU and Alabama and then everyone else in the SEC. From the start of the season, everyone was pointing to these two as the cream of the crop in the SEC. Armed with stellar defenses and impressive wins, both can make a case as the top team in the...
  • Doesn't pay to live in past

    Tradition clearly is overrated. Nostalgia is for saps. "If memories were all I sang," Rick Nelson once sang, "I'd rather drive a truck." You would think history might mean more in a sport that produced "Win one for the Gipper," but this is no time to be...
  • Chris Dufresne's college football rankings

    1. Alabama (4-0): Took everything out of Arkansas, including Bear Bryant. (1) 2. LSU (4-0): Only an SEC team could allow 463 passing yards and move up. (3) 3. Oklahoma (3-0): Cover-2: Bob Stoops 100 percent for joining Pac-12 and 100 percent for staying...
  • Don't change that dial

    It's never over until it's over. Arkansas and Illinois rallied from double-digit deficits for exciting wins over Texas A&M and Northwestern, respectively. Navy and TCU also had big rallies but fell short in overtime. The Luke Fickell Era may be a...
  • Picture getting clearer

    Ohio State can win despite itself. The Buckeyes are by no means a flashy team, but they do two things really well — run the ball and play defense. It's that formula that helped them hand Illinois its first loss. Texas still has a lot of work to do....
