    Marcus Allen, other ex-USC stars like what they see from Ed Orgeron

    Sizing up Steve Sarkisian's hiring, Pat Haden's future at USC
    Are you happy? Steve Sarkisian, the loser from the U DUB, the new head coach for USC? When the first loss comes, next year, the boos will ring darkly across the Coliseum. Paul Hovsepian "Ring darkly across the Coliseum." Did you steal that from a...
  • Notre Dame isn't ranked? A call for protest makes a connection

    Notre Dame isn't ranked? A call for protest makes a connection
    Adding to the mysteries in your column is Rankman slotting in USC as No. 25. If a 7-3 Notre Dame team that beat No. 14 Michigan State and No. 22 Arizona State doesn't deserve to be ranked (and they don't), then how can a 7-3 USC team that lost to Notre...
  • Same old, same old: SEC is center of BCS universe

    Same old, same old: SEC is center of BCS universe
    Alabama played lousy and Auburn got lucky, but nothing changes as another November starts to coalesce around SEC headquarters in Birmingham, Ala. It's almost like the swallows returning to Capistrano. When undefeated Auburn was left out of the BCS...

    College Football Top 25: A lot of pressure on Baylor
    Attention all impersonators of Woody Hayes: Don't get all bent out of Buckeye shape with this week's order change. Just let things play out. Baylor moves ahead of Ohio State for now because that's exactly what will happen in the next Bowl Championship...

     Chris Petersen leaving Boise State for Washington head coaching job

    Georgia Southern isn't passing aggressive in win over Florida
    The NFL Network aired a terrific documentary this week commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the forward pass. Georgia Southern obviously didn't watch it. In a game that would have made Darrell Royal and Woody Hayes proud, Georgia Southern of the...

    On Coach O's future at USC, the BCS myth and Big Ten irrelevance
    Did Coach O get himself a head coaching job (Saturday) night? Vince Muzik Not unless I missed a big story in my morning paper, but I do think USC interim Coach Ed Orgeron is moving closer to the point of no return. This is the "careful what you wish...
  • A sweet (and not so sweet) trip down memory lane of 16 BCS title games

    A sweet (and not so sweet) trip down memory lane of 16 BCS title games
    If I make it to Monday I will have covered all 16 national title games in the Bowl Championship Series era. Someone, please, blow a kazoo. It's been one crazy ride between Tennessee playing Florida State at the Fiesta Bowl in 1998 and this week's...
