The Weekend That Will Be: Week 9 (Staff Blog)


Georgia vs. Florida- The Gators have tried to make the World's Largest Cocktail Party (let's just call it what it is) interesting by announcing that quarterback John Brantley will be back under center as the starter. They will also bring running back Jeff Demps to Jacksonville. Georgia said they will be without Malcolm Mitchell, who is blossoming into a true go-to target for Aaron Murray. The Dawgs boast a top ten defense and the Florida has hardly been competent on offense, but ...

The Times High School Football Pick 'Em: Week 10 (Staff Blog)

With game seven tonight, we are all hoping your team wins in blowout fashion, so the clock can run in the fourth quarter and you can get home (or back to the office) to watch baseball's postseason finale. We transition back to high school football.

Spurrier helps State, Remeber Richardson's Run (Staff Blog)


South Carolina was leading by four points with less than ten seconds left in the game against Mississippi State on Saturday. Instead of pulling a New York Giant-sized mistake, Steve Spurrier told quarterback Connor Shaw to run out the clock and take the safety to ensure victory. Confident Gamecock fans, more specifically USC bettors, may have been a little more upset with the Ol' Ball Coach's decision. Why you ask? With the two extra points given to the Bulldogs, ...
