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. 9 Oregon in early November. The winner at sold-out Stanford Stadium remains in control for a spot in the inaugural Pac-12 Championship game. And in the Cardinal's case, even more. Stanford is entering the toughest part of its schedule and hoping for a late push up the BCS standings - if it can stay perfect.

Watching the Heisman Watchmen Week Seven: Luck Unsurprisingly Tops Early Heisman Race

Seven weeks in the books, and the Heisman race is finally concrete enough to watch from an aggregate perspective. With a clear preseason frontrunner in Andrew Luck, many Heisman analysts have stuck to Luck like glue in the early going, although Luck’s candidacy lacks a certain fire other Heisman winners have enjoyed. The rest of the current leaders are muddled together. Yes, Trent...

Andrew Luck is smart and immensely valuable, but he’s not the type to plot an NFL power play

Yeah, I can bet that a few NFL executives are watching Stanford’s Andrew Luck play nearly perfect football week after week and are wondering if he’ll try to use his elite status to hand-pick his professional landing place. They wouldn’t worry so much if they really knew Luck, who... Continue reading...

The Dolphins Think Your Mom “Sucks For Luck”

The Miami Dolphins are 0-5. In no sport is that a good way to start a season, especially in the NFL, where teams don’t have the luxury of needlessly long seasons like the NBA and MLB. So it goes without saying that as the New England Patriots have once again established themselves as the standard in the AFC East, and the Buffalo Bills have proven that a franchise can climb out...

Oklahoma goes down at home against Texas Tech

No. 3 Oklahoma couldn’t overcome an early deficit as they lost to Texas Tech 41-38. The much-hyped Sooners’ defense gave up 572 total yards to the Red Raiders along with the 41 points, pretty much destroying any notion that they belonged in the National Championship game. Meanwhile Landry Jones completed 30 of 55 passes in the shootout for 412 yards and 5 touchdowns against one...

Heisman Watch Week Eight: Luck, Moore, Richardson Lead Important Victory Marches

Trent Richardson 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...

Did Tony Dungy Really Advise Indianapolis Colts to Trade Peyton Manning, Draft Andrew Luck?

Tony Dungy won a Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts with Peyton Manning as his quarterback.

Miami Dolphins LB Jason Taylor on ‘Suck for Luck:’ Team would revolt

Add Jason Taylor to the growing list of Miami Dolphins players who has gone on record to say that ‘Suck for Luck’ is an asinine, embarrassing concept. Taylor didn’t use both those words on Thursday to describe his thoughts on Suck for Luck. But he did use one of them. Asinine. Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby spoke yesterday of the Suck for Luck talk and he strongly criticized...
