UCLA Football Wraps Up Spring Practice With Half a Game

While the White team won 16-10, the Bruins remain a work in progress at this point. Building a winning program takes time. That much was evident watching yesterday’s UCLA Spring Game where the big takeaway was that the team is still a work in progress and will probably continue to be up until September 1st when the Bruins host Cincinnati at the Rose Bowl. There was a lot of sloppy play. Not only did the quarterbacks throw three interceptions, but there were numerous dropped snaps and one snap that went for a safety after long snapper Johnny Den Bleyker launched one over his punter’s...

No Syracuse football coach has ever made a bowl game in year three

To make the postseason this year, Dino Babers must buck a long-standing trend at SU. As we enter year three of the Dino Babers era for Syracuse Orange football, we’re sitting in a familiar spot for the program. Progress is apparent, but we’re waiting on the wins to go with it. Injuries have been a subplot, and also a major source of frustration. While we weren’t always sure of the plan with previous coaches — even Doug Marrone surrounded his own steady hand with the uncertainty around the offensive scheme — Babers is a known entity in that regard.

In an era that is undoubtedly marked by more parity, more scrutiny, better athletes, one-sided offensive rules, and better 1-through-85 coaching and development, it crawls under the skin of CNS’ peers that he has seemingly hacked the system.

Greatest Games from Every Season: 1963

Cholly Mac’s first rebuilding job. Year one of Charlie McClendon was a resounding success. Even his most hardened critics, and they certainly existed even after year one, could only state the season could have been even better had LSU been able to overcome Rice (who they tied) and Ole Miss, who beat them by 8. Naturally, the criticism mostly focused on McClendon’s somewhat controversial decision to RS high profile QB recruit Pat Screen. Screen took a RS behind the modest QB duo of Lynn Amedee and Jimmy Field. Still, LSU won 9 games, and beat a dominant Texas team in the Cotton Bowl....
