It seemed like that Florida State-Notre Dame showdown would clear the air at the top a little bit. Instead it only muddied the water.

 

What to do with the Seminoles?

If you hadn’t noticed, the SEC West is really good. Way better top to bottom than the SEC East.

 

Which is only more reason why the SEC (and ACC for that matter) need to get rid of the divisions and adopt my proposed “pod” system so that everybody will play everybody more often and not be bound by

Michaux Poll, Vol. 2

 

Second weekly installment of how one person would rank the college football teams.

 

Subject to dramatic change every week. No slotting, ever.

 

 

 

 

1. Mississippi State (6-0) - 3 consecutive wins vs. Top 5 teams. Enough said.

2. Ole Miss (6-0) - Please, please, PLEASE,

ATHENS, Ga. — The whole thing stinks – and nobody wins.

 

Todd Gurley’s brilliant collegiate career may have come to a premature end because a memorabilia dealer with an alternate agenda profited off the running back’s signature with one hand and tore him down with the other.

 

Gurley was

As promised back in August, I’m getting into the poll business.

 

With the advent of the playoff era in college football, polls will take on some real meaning. I don’t mean the fake BCS kind of meaning.

It’s been a couple of days since Oliver Wilson broke into tears on the most storied 18th hole in golf, but the texts, emails and social media well wishes keep pouring in at a rate the Augusta State graduate can’t possibly keep up with.

 

“It’s been mad,” said Wilson of his career resurrecting

Todd Gurley rushed for a career-high 208 yards and carried his fellow Bulldogs on his back to a victory over Tennessee on Saturday.

 

That same night he was out celebrating with friends and had to answer to false assault charges leveled against him by a fellow Georgia student.

 

According to a

The Ryder Cup never disappoints.

 

Whether the United States blows a lead, gets blown out or (on rare occasions) wins against the Europeans, the Ryder Cup packs more drama, passion and suspense into three days than a season full of major championships.

 

It is, without question, the greatest

It’s a shame South Carolina doesn’t lose – or at least almost lose – often these days because Steve Spurrier is so much more fun to listen to when things go wrong.

 

Even in a 48-34 victory last week at Vanderbilt, the head ball coach was unimpressed as only he can be.

 

“That was a game I didn’t

Welcome to the Ryder Cup, Patrick Reed. For your opening act, go try to cut the heart out of the European team.

 

By the time most Americans wake up on Friday morning, the former Augusta State star will have already made his Ryder Cup debut with fellow rookie Jordan Spieth against European

A grossly unfair critique of Georgia coach Mark Richt appeared in Rolling Stones magazine this week after the South Carolina loss. It called Richt the Charlie Brown of college football who keeps teasing but never kicks the football.

 

The column cited “Richt’s stunning ability to lose crucial

It sure is a tough time to be a sports league commissioner.

 

The NBA’s Adam Silver inherited bi-coastal racism in the ownership boxes from Los Angeles to Atlanta.

 

The PGA Tour’s Tim Finchem has player fatigue and/or apathy spoiling his contrived playoff system and no Tiger Woods to save the

That was quite a little opening-week shake-up in the SEC East.

 

Preseason favorite South Carolina looked DOA against Texas A&M, failing to impress anybody with its soft defense and inconsistent offense.

Tom Watson announced his trio of captains picks for the American Ryder Cup team at 30 Rock on Tuesday night in the studio where “Saturday Night Live” is produced.

 

Fitting, since one of the picks he settled on was a joke.

 

As most expected, Watson picked Ryder Cup veterans Hunter Mahan and

ATHENS, Ga. – In an effort to avoid making too broad a judgment on Georgia’s 45-21 season-opening victory against Clemson, let’s just say a whole lot of narratives emerged that will become very familiar to both fan bases in the coming months.

 

First and foremost, let’s address the elephant on the
