Stanford Offense Still On Track

14 Apr

Stanford football seems to still be on track for another title run. Well at least the offense. In Saturday’s spring game at Kezar Stadium QB Andrew Luck lead his team to a 42-3 victory over the white team.

Luck threw for 165 yards, going 16 of 22, and had three touchdowns. However, the first stringers faced all reserve players. On the other hand, the 6,800 fans that showed up didn’t care about how evenly matched the teams were. The offensive explosion to the Cardinal fans proved that their team is a team to still be reckoned with after the departure of head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Recruiting Spotlight: Joseph Scelfo

20 Mar

For most college football programs offensive line is their top priority. For one school this won’t be a problem. Whoever signs North Oconee High School’s Joseph Scelfo will get a solid lineman who can play both center and guard. This 6`2 275 pound guard has both power and excellent technique. But more importantly he has great leadership skills and superb academic success (3.43 GPA).

Check him out. Number 66

The cornerstone of any successful team requires a solid group of offensive linemen. This collective group of men is responsible for the success or failure of each offensive play.

He began his high school career as a starting sophomore and never looked back. Scelfo is a leader on the Titans offensive unit. Registering a career high 11 pancakes in a game, Joseph Scelfo is the truth.

As a result of his exceptional play he has been the recipient of All region and All Area awards. His play hasn’t gone unnoticed, schools including UAB, Marshall, Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Miami, UL Monroe, MTSU, Furman, Wofford, Syracuse, Samford, UCLA, South Carolina, and Virginia Tech has begun sending him mail.

His sports heroes include Todd Mclure, Tony Gonzalez, Jeff Saturday, Walter Jones, and Chris Scelfo. His play reminds me of linemen like Walter Jones, Jon Runyan, and Larry Allen. This kid has pure talent and an enormous upside. A great addition to whatever university he decides to attend.

Expected Graduation Year: 2012

Societal and Media Bias Against USC?

15 Nov

The University of Southern California football program has always been seen as one of the best in the nation. However, after the NCAA placed them on four year probation, many people started to consider them as a team of ungrateful, overconfident, cheating bandits. Quietly under the direction of head coach Lane Kiffin and quarterback Matt Barkley the Trojans have had a productive season. So far USC record is 7-3 overall and 4-3 in the Pac-10. QB Matt Barkley is putting up Heisman like numbers with 2,518 passing yards and 25 touchdowns. But do we hear anything about USC as a team? The answer is NO.

Of course, we as a society should punish them for what few did to get them in trouble. Should be not mention the good things they are doing now? All the players that caused the problems for the program are gone, all the coaches that allowed it to happen has left, and the athletic director that sat and let the culture of noncompliance fester is nowhere to be seen. Be that as it may, we as a society, or better yet the NCAA and the media are choosing to make the young men that do the right thing suffer. They get no recognition for what they are doing now as a clean, drama free, legit team.

The men that go to class, lace up their cleats, and put on the shoulder pads for the Trojans of the new USC need much more respect than they are given. For the very simple reason, any other program under the same conditions would have caved. The players that remained stayed and made a declaration to bring the program back to the good graces of the alumni and to the nation as a proud program. We should encourage them not ignore and shame them.

They will continue to Fight On…

NCAA College Football Preview

29 Oct

The two games this weekend that everyone seems to be talking about is the Oregon Ducks vs. the University of Southern California Trojans and the Michigan State Spartans vs. the Iowa Hawkeyes. Personally, I think the most fascinating game of the weekend is the Michigan State vs. Iowa game because of the physicality of the Hawkeyes. Michigan State hasn’t faced a team this year that will play them as tough as Iowa will. This game will show how good Michigan State really is or not.

In addition, Oregon will really be tested by a talented USC team. Don’t be surprised to see this game closer than the experts suggest.

USA Today Coaches’ Poll

4 Oct

Alabama still remains atop of the poll. The Oregon Ducks leapfrogged the Boise State Broncos after their win against Stanford on Saturday. Texas and Penn State falls out of the poll, after losing. And Florida State (24) and Northwestern (25) narrowly made it into the poll. The Big East again has no teams in the Top 25.

Controversial Call in USC-UVA Game Gets Officials Suspended

14 Sep

Maybe the call that took away Mike London’s his second win as University of Virginia Head Coach causes officials to be reprimanded.

During a critical point in the game UVA called for a fake punt and was successful. However, the officials working the game flagged UVA for blocking below the waist. Blocking below the waist on a regular punt is a penalty. But in this case it is considered a normal down and shouldn’t have been called. Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement that Virginia was called for blocking below the waist on a second-quarter fake punt. By rule, however, no penalty was warranted because no kick was made.

He went on to say “the officials recognized the mistake after the fact and apologized to the Virginia coaching staff. We know mistakes are made in games, but we will not tolerate our officials misinterpreting the rules,” He further went on to say “We believe the reprimand and removal from a future assignment are appropriate.”
