Scoreless in the first half and leading an Alabama squad that could not break away from Tennessee — tied 6-6 at half — Trent Richardson’s day was looking like a hit against his Heisman hopes and possibly a hit against Alabama’s legitimacy as a BCS contender.
But a strong second half, keyed by two Richardson touchdowns and plenty of scoring led the Tide easily by the Volunteers, and gave Richardson just enough on the day to keep right in the thick of things in the Heisman race.
Richardson finished the day with 77 yards and two scores, helping to lead Alabama over Tennessee, 37-6 — a serviceable day by all accounts. He and the Tide have next weekend off before the looming showdown with BCS No. 1 LSU at home. A strong performance there could do wonders for a Heisman profile, and Richardson will surely be looking to take advantage.
Taken out of context, Landry Jones’s performance late Saturday night was probably the best quarterback showing of the day. But...

Stanford QB supreme/BMOC Andrew Luck has made it clear how stupid he believes the “suck for Luck” campaign is. And I’m not sure how much I’ll ever believe that NFL teams are really even intentionally sucking in order to take the most sought after signal caller in college football.
I think the sucking just comes naturally. That said, we were among the first to explore this...
Stanford's first win of the season against a ranked team helped Andrew Luck and the Cardinal move up in the BCS standings.
While LSU (8-0), Alabama (8-0) and Oklahoma State (8-0) remained locked into the top three spots in the standings released Sunday, Stanford moved up two places to fourth after beating Southern California 56-48 in triple overtime.
Boise State (7-0) slipped...
This happened Saturday night during a commercial break in Stanford's blowout win over Washington, which was broadcast on ABC/ESPN. McDonough, the play-by-play man, is a Syracuse grad, and Syracuse had beaten the **** out of West Virginia the night before. Just as the cameras found Oliver Luck in the stands, McDonough didn't take too kindly to a...
The first ranked opponent for Stanford this season hardly figured to come so soon.
After rolling to a 41-0 victory last year in Seattle, Andrew Luck and the seventh-ranked Cardinal will host the surprising No. 22 Huskies on Saturday night in what amounts to an elimination game in the Pac-12 North.
Both Stanford (6-0, 4-0) and Washington (5-1, 3-0) still have home dates with No...
When it became clear the Cardinals were headed for their fifth straight loss Sunday against the Steelers, writers throughout the press box began a frantic search for new ways to spin the same old story -- about what felt like the same old team.
Mine was an innocent tweet, a little gallows humor to lighten the mood.
"The Cards are currently No. 4 in the NFL Draft order."...
Stanford used an impressive rushing display and another solid performance by Andrew Luck to defeat No. 25 Washington 65-21 on Saturday evening.
Baltimore and Jacksonville play tonight on Monday Night Football and while the Jags aren't scaring anyone (well, except you, Tennessee), they're currently out of the hunt for Andrew Luck. Three teams are currently winless in the NFL: St. Louis, Miami and Indianapolis.The most surprising of these may actually be St. Louis, who probably expected more out of Sam Bradford and...
In the movie, A Field of Dreams, a voice tells Kevin Costner-’if you build it, they will come”. What happens if the Miami Dolphins finish the season with the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, a move securing the chance to draft Stanford QB Andrew Luck, and Luck wants no part of Miami? It’s a move that’s been done before.
Eli Manning, John Elway and RB...
The first ranked opponent for Stanford this season hardly figured to come so soon. After rolling to a 41-0 victory last year in Seattle, Heisman Trophy hopeful Andrew Luck and the seventh-ranked Cardinal will host the surprising No. 22 Huskies on Saturday night in what amounts to an elimination game in the Pac-12 North.
Tony Dungy won a Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts with Peyton Manning as his quarterback. While Dungy has moved on from coaching and took a job with NBC Sports as an analyst, is he now advising his former team to also consider parting ways with their best player in franchise history?
Manning has not played one down this season in Indianapolis following three neck...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) A few weeks ago, many Chiefs fans were lobbying to join the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.
Kansas City had lost three straight games, two in historically bad fashion, not to mention the four preseason games before that. The Chiefs had endured a slew of season-ending injuries to some of their best players, and fans were pining for the superstar quarterback from Stanford...
