Nations: Non-BCS programs automatic also-rans

This will not be yet another BCS-bashing diatribe. There will be no elegant playoff solutions here. That doesn't mean wishful thinking is off-limits, though. After all, it is the holiday season. TCU got a big present on Monday, when the school's board of trustees voted unanimously to accept an invitation to join the Big East Conference in all sports starting in the 2012-13 school year ... or rather, football season since this move is purely, completely and transparently 100 percent about football. comments

SU's Giffing has improved by watching film

WINCHESTER -- When Corey Giffing played outside linebacker at North East High School (Md.), his coaches typically saved film sessions for those rainy days when the school's practice field turned to a muddy, sloppy mess. Because Giffing rarely watched film, he didn't understand the intricacies of football early in is career, he didn't quite know the importance of playing with a high football IQ. Left with few alternatives, Giffing had only one approach to high school football: "I was just kinda the guy that would run around, trying to get to the football," Giffing said. comments

Hornets hold off Monarchs for win

WINCHESTER -- Shenandoah quarterback Daniel Wright watched Methodist placekicker Tyler Mosko line up for a 29-yard field goal with 24 seconds left in Saturday night's homecoming game on Sprint Field at Shentel Stadium. Wright had to watch to see how the game would play out. The crowd's reaction, he said, is too difficult to interpret -- and he needed to be sure the Hornets weren't heading to overtime. comments
