All things NCAA

There’s a reason they cheat to win. College football is where it is at. In the Southeast, the names are immortal: Herschel, Bo, Peyton. In the Midwest and West Coast, it’s no different. The coaches are revered as gods—Woody Hayes, Bo Schembechler, the Bear—and we are stunned to see them fall from the lofty peaks when they do. In the midst of a fascinating baseball season, pit against one of the most dramatic work stoppages in recent NFL memory, what has consistently dominated the sports consciousness? College football. As a transplant from Kentucky (the pseudo-South) to More >
Whenever we can, we all brag about our so-called “steals”. Here on SCF we even have a contest called “eBay steal of the week”, where we vote on the best steal.
There is nothing wrong with boosting about a bargain we can find bargains in a store as well as online. If the seller has done a mistype, chooses to end the auction early morning, or put the card in the wrong category, well it’s lucky for whoever picks it up at a dirt cheap price. Sometimes it’s down to plain luck, that particular day maybe the interest in a special More >

At Bowling Green, Jacobs was a star his sophomore and junior season. As a sophomore, Jacobs set an NCAA Division I-A record for touchdown-to-interception ratio with 10.25:1 in 12 games. He threw 41 touchdowns and four interceptions while completing 67% of his passes. He also rushed for 300 More >
Week 9 NCAA Football Review
Week nine in the NCAA football season has come and gone and there were some big wins, heartbreaking loses, and last second thrillers. Since this is my first article, I will go through the process of what I will be doing each and every week. Usually on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, I will do a small review of each game that the top 10 ranked teams played in the previous week. I will also pick a “game of the week” for the teams that are ranked #11-#25 and highlight that game. Here it goes:
