Beyond the Combine:
With the release of the first BCS standings of the season on Sunday, three teams are primed to make a run at the national championship, with the rest of the chasing pack hoping at least two of them will slip up somewhere along the way.
The question now is whether No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Florida State or No. 3 Oregon will slip up somewhere along the way.
If the history of sports has taught us anything, however, it’s that you should never take anything for granted, and the remainder of the schedule has some potential traps, particularly for Alabama and Oregon.
The Tide, in pursuit of a modern-record third straight national title and a fourth in five years, has two ranked teams remaining in the regular season — a deflated No. 13 LSU, which lost to Ole Miss on Saturday, as well as a surging No. 11 Auburn — and if Alabama wins those two, No. 5 Missouri or whoever comes out of a weakened SEC East awaits in the SEC Championship.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says his ninth-ranked Tigers are more even with No. 3 Florida State than the lopsided score in Saturday's meeting indicates.

This Saturday is the Florida State Seminoles Homecoming game, and they are playing the NC State Wolfpack, who stole their national title hopes in 2012. According to Gamedayr, the Seminoles, who dominated the #3 ranked Clemson over the weekend and debuted the BCS polls at #2 in the nation, have decided to put on quite a show for the Tallahassee faithful by having about 300 former...
That’s the spirit Dabo.
So what if Florida State just traveled into Clemson and hung damn near a 100 on the No. 3 ranked Tigers in their game of the century.
They got lucky, and Dabo Swinney is alright with that.
I mean that’s what I’m assuming.

Florida State linebacker Reggie Northrup is getting pretty weird after the Seminoles' huge, 51-14 throttling of fellow ACC power Clemson.
Bobby Bowden believes the Florida State football program is in such a good place that he is returning to campus two years before he planned to be back.
The NCAA's all-time wins leader was leery of hanging around the program and wanted coach Jimbo Fisher to have time to establish his own identity and foundation.
Bowden now feels that time has come.
The third-ranked Seminoles...
Alabama and Florida State hold the top two spots in the first BCS standings of the season. Oregon was a close third behind second-place Florida State.
The Seminoles (.9348 BCS average) are coming off their biggest win of the season, a 51-14 victory at previously unbeaten Clemson.
The Ducks (.9320) have only played one team that was ranked at the time, but could get a boost in the...
There has been a lot of talk lately about the Florida State Seminoles since the BCS poll named them the No. 2 team in the nation instead of the Oregon Ducks. Are the Seminoles for real? Are they better than the high-powered offense led by Heisman trophy favorite Marcus Mariota?
The BCS poll clearly thinks so, but how about reality? Well, if last weekend's games were any...
