The names Jacob, im a college student and a sports fanatic. My sport of choice has always been basketball, and living a short drive from Chapel Hill Ive always been a Tar Heel guy! I like the NBA but prefer college. I am also a football fan, again I prefer college. I went to high school with several guys who have gone on to play at Virginia Tech, also another home town star will be playing for VT this season as well, so I root for the Hokies in football season. Its a Virginia/home town guys kinda thing!

    I don't mean to sound incredulous or like a poor sport, mostly very angry at a few people within the NU program that destroyed a great effort by the NU defense. Most notably, the DUMB SOB OC Shawn Watson. This guy has had terrible issues getting the ball in the endzone any time the NU offense hits the redzone going back to last year. It often appears that the only way this NU team scores under the guidance of Watson is via big plays from beyond the redzone.

    Once they hit the redzone he doesn't seem to have a knack for getting the offense in the right plays, formations, personnel groupings, etc to get them in the endzone. And the result is what we have yesterday.

    I have no doubt that the dumb sob settled for those fg's and was happy too. DUMB DUMB FOOTBALL!

    And it came back to bite his ass!

    Kudos to VT for capitalizing on the terrible mistakes

    The SEC West is extremely crowded. I've posted the first two in a series of three articles on a revised look at the front runners.

    I tried to be objective and left my 'colored' glasses in the case, please take a look if you've got a minute and let me know how I did!

    I hope you 'like' it!

    Many people might not actually know about pole-vaulting queen, Yelena Isinbayeva, but she has been one of the most dominant athletes the world has seen in recent times. She finally lost at the World Athletics Championships in Berlin recently, which was a complete shock. Here's a recap on that -


    I will be extremely obliged if u can give it a read.
