The Tide are coming off one of the most impressive performances in college football history. They were the best team last year, and they’re the best team this year.
In a bowl season that saw several out-of-this-world offensive performances, we were all reminded last night of the oldest and truest cliché in sports.
Jeremy Shelley kicked five field goals and Trent Richardson broke a 34-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter as No. 2 Alabama beat No. 1 LSU 21-0 on Monday night—the first shutout in BCS title game history.
While the BCS system is flawed, the title game features, without a doubt, the correct matchup.

The biggest game of the week is #3 Alabama (1-0) taking on #23 Penn State (1-0). Two of the winningest programs in college football history, two teams led by legendary coaches, two teams with BCS dreams.
Cam Newton threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, leading No. 2 Auburn back from a 24-point deficit Friday for a stunning 28-27 victory over No. 9 Alabama that kept the Tigers on course for a shot at the national championship.
No one knows how many more twists the Cam Newton saga still holds. But everyone has a pretty good idea where he will be when it’s over, regardless of how it ends: cashing paychecks in the NFL.
LSU twice rallied from second-half deficits and once again coach Les Miles employed a little trickery on fourth down, allowing the No. 12 Tigers to beat fifth-ranked Alabama 24-21 on Saturday.
During an episode of “Hard Knocks,” a few Jets joked that RB Joe McKnight took a pay cut to leave USC for the NFL. They may not have been too far from the truth.
Can you smell it? Take a deep breath. Yes, there it is. No, not the Mets annual swoon. No, no, no not the Jets look-at-me braggadocio. It’s the latest college football scandal(s). You have a […]
