James Madison: The Father of the Constitution and diminishing Boise State BCS Championship Game hopes

The Broncos barely beat the, now 0-2, Virginia Tech Hokies after the Gobblers were defeated by Div-AA James Madison. I still think Boise State could win the FCS division if they were in it. FBS, not so much.

Bush Heisman

Did the NCAA take away OJ’s Heisman Trophy before he hocked it? Didn’t think so.

Braves-Gamecock thinks the punishment of returning the Heisman doesn’t fit the crime.

Braves-Gamecock thinks most of the NCAA rules violate Liberty and even those that don’t wouldn’t justify recognitions of who won games on the field, won championships and excelled enough to make the trip to New York’s Downtown Athletic Club.

And we weren’t and are not a Reggie Bush fan.

The Big Game and NCAA College Football Week Three

The Tigers will win Saturday’s game between Clemson and Auburn. If the War Eagle version wins, the reputation of the ACC as mainly a basketball conference no better than the Mountain West in football grows. If the denizens of South Carolina’s Death Valley win the game in Auburn’s Barn on the Alabama Plain, then the tiger paw dreams of a 1981 national championship encore lives on.

End of the 1801 “Chicken Curse”

I am Gamecock. Born one, raised as one and matriculated as one at the Law School.

We awaited the opening Kickoff of the College Football season, still basking in the glow of the end of the 1801 “chicken curse” as the Fighting Gamecocks won the College World Series over UCLA (the school with the most NCAA national championships) and their first national championship (The Lady Gamecocks broke their “hen curse” with the 2002 Track and Field crown), when USC will tarnish the feathers of the Southern Miss Golden Eagles as Lane Kiffin’s team (for now) has a luau with non-rainbow Warriors in Hawaii.

More losers next week as Agnes Scott College remains undefeated….Get me out of here, Percy (Peabody) …
