Spiffy
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:21 am

Via the Austin American-Statesman: Buoyed by 2005 Rose Bowl victory, Texas pulls in a top-ranked class

Texas’ class was a consensus top five nationally, with Scout.com ranking it third; College Sports TV putting it fourth; and Rivals.com having it fifth. It was tossup between Florida and Southern California for the nation’s top class.

The Texas group was chock full of football bluebloods, befitting a team that’s a month removed from winning the national championship. Topped off by No. 1 Sergio Kindle, 15 made the American-Statesman’s Fabulous 55, a list of the state’s top prospects, including six of the top 11.

Five were members of the Parade magazine All-America team. Kindle was considered the top linebacker in the country, while Kilgore’s Eddie Jones was the consensus pick as the nation’s best defensive end.

Sounds good to me.

LenDale White Heads for Draft
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 5:15 pm

Via the Sports Network: The Sports Network - I-A College Football

USC junior running back LenDale White declared his eligibility for the 2006 National Football League Draft on Wednesday, foregoing his final collegiate season.

The 6-foot-2, 235-pound tailback finished the 2005 season with 1,302 rushing yards on 197 carries (6.6 avg.) for 24 touchdowns and 14 receptions for 219 yards (15.6 avg.) and two touchdowns.

He put in quite a performance in the Rose Bowl, and after that I figured he would come out. There is little doubt that he will go in the first round.

Young Announces: It’s the Draft
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 4:54 pm

As expected (via the Austin American-Statesman): Young heading to NFL

Vince Young announced Sunday that he is skipping his senior season as quarterback for the national champion Texas Longhorns and will enter the NFL draft.

“I’ve decided to enter the draft this year and go to the NFL,” Young said in a news conference on the University of Texas campus. “I know that everybody is behind me, and I thank God for that. I won’t let ya’ll down.”

The reward is to high (I can’t imagine he would go any lower than third overall) and the risk of a career-ending injury is too high not to go.

As much as I would love to see him stay at Texas and repeat (something that I think a Young-led Longhorns squad would be favored to do), this is obviously the best move for him.

Hook’Em!!
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 2:34 pm

Things went fine on the panel this morning-perhaps more on that later,

But for now, I have to say: Hook’Em Horns!

That was quite a game last night, and quite a performance by Vince Young.

Nebreska Wins the Alamo Bowl
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 9:01 am

Via the AP: Nebraska Back on the Map After Alamo Win.

A few reactions:

1) How far did Michigan fall this year?

2) Good for the Big XII, which needs some serious improvement, especially in the North.

And TideNation Wept
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:46 pm

The question of where Tim Tebow, a HS QB from Florida was going to go to school has been the topic of local sports radio since the regular season ended (and hence why I haven’t listened to much local sporttalk of late).

Now, we find, he’s going to Florida (which should make the Chair of my Department happy):
Tebow opts to stay home and play for Florida.

One guesses that the sackfest that Auburn put on Brody Croyle didn’t help persuade Tebow to go to Bama (and I think he was at that game). Plus, it appears he has a better chance to start sooner at Florida.

Tebow is the second-rated QB on this list of the Top 100 players as ranked by Tom Lemming of CSTV.

Of course, all I care about is that it looks likes Texas has a nice share of the list).

Coming up Roses
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 3:14 pm

Well, this game was over back in the first half and it went into to “let’s just get it over mode” in the third quarter with Texas up 70-3.

At this point it’s like the fourth quarter in an NFL preseason game.

So, it is cleary on to Pasadena and almost certainly the Trojans.

Hook’Em!

You Have Got to be Kidding Me
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 9:47 am

Via ESPN: Congress to look into ‘deeply flawed’ BCS system

A House Energy and Commerce subcommittee, charged with regulating America’s sports industry, announced Friday it will conduct a hearing on the BCS next week, after this season’s bowl matchups are determined.

“College football is not just an exhilarating sport, but a billion-dollar business that Congress cannot ignore,” said committee Chairman Joe Barton, a Texas Republican. Barton’s panel is separate from the House Government Reform panel that tackled steroids in baseball.

The committee announcement called the hearing, scheduled for next Wednesday, a “comprehensive review” of the BCS and postseason college football.

“Too often college football ends in sniping and controversy, rather than winners and losers,” Barton said. “The current system of determining who’s No. 1 appears deeply flawed.”

And precisely how or why does Congressman Barton seem to think that it is the realm of Congress to get involved in how IA football chooses its #1 team?

Heck, I would love to see a playoff, that’s not the issue. The issue is: how in the world is it the business of Congress how any sporting authority chooses its champion?

And note to the Congressman: college football likes all the sniping and controversy because it draws attention to their product.

This is plain silly.

Maybe they can look into the subjective nature of scoring in figure skating next.

All’s Well that Ends Well
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 3:03 pm

Hook’Em!!

Vince did not look like Vince 2005, more like Vince 2004 (which isn’t Heisman Vince-indeed, after today one has to say that Reggie Bush is the favorite to win).

Still, a team effort-defense, special teams, Ramonce Taylor running-even if Vince didn’t have a good game.

On to the Big XII Championship!

Watching Vince
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 11:45 am

Today is the Texas-Texas A&M game (Texas is up 7-0 as I type).

Via the Austin-American Statesman: Here’s a checklist to keep up with Vince

So with today’s game against Texas A&M, the Big 12 Conference championship on Dec. 3 and a possible Rose Bowl berth, here’s what’s left for Young, individually, to accomplish this year:

86 and 226: That’s 86 yards passing and 226 rushing. If he gets both of those, Young becomes the first quarterback in NCAA history to generate 1,000 yards rushing and 2,500 passing.

73: With 73 rushing yards today, Young will move into fourth place on the school’s all-time list, passing two Longhorns greats along the way (Roosevelt Leaks, fifth in UT history with 2,923 yards, and A.J. “Jam” Jones, sixth with 2,874).

5: As in touchdowns. Young and former running back Cedric Benson are tied with 73 career touchdowns — five more and the quarterback breaks the school touchdown record set by 1998 Heisman winner Ricky Williams.

23: Twenty-three yards of any kind and he breaks Major Applewhite’s school single-season record of 3,211.

1: As in a win today against the Aggies. If that happens — and the Longhorns are heavily favored — then Young’s starting record will increase to 28-2 and his winning percentage to 0.933. That will tie him with former Nebraska great Turner Gill for seventh best in NCAA history.

2: With two more victories, Young will best Bobby Layne’s school record of 28 by a starting quarterback.

Update: At the moment (2nd Qtr, 9:38), Texas ain’t exactly playing like the #2 team in the nation. Ugh.

Update II: TD: double UGH. FUMBLE! UGH UGH UGH.

Update IV: (Start of the second half): it would appear that someone has replaced the Texas O-Line with Folgers Crystal. I cannot believe this.

…undefeated teams in the Top 25, that is. LSU eked out an OT win over the Crimson Tide to save the BCS’s bacon this season.

And, hey look: Spurrier’s Gamecocks beat the Gators. Whaddya know….

And what’s with FSU losing to unranked Clemson?
