Re: "Dragon Breath" A UAB Dynasty (NCAA12)

Cool to see a UAB dynasty here. I popped in NCAA 11 yesterday since I had nothing better to do and started a dynasty with them. First game was against Mississippi State Bulldogs and I lost 24-14. It would have been closer since it was 7-7 going into halftime, but the second half I threw three picks (one of which was with two minutes left and down only three points) and a fumble and that basically ruined my chances. Next game is against SMU, I believe. Hopefully, I can get a win there.

Anyway, I'm loving this dynasty. Really looking forward to future updates.

WEEK 8
Teams are starting to separate themselves from the pack, while cinderella are holding firm. Week 8 is a quiet week with a few big games that will impact conference races. Here are the bigger games for week 8

#16 PENN STATE (3-2) AT OHIO STATE (3-3)
As both teams seem to be losing grip of a conference championship, these two teams now play in hopes of getting to a bowl. Both sit a 1-1 in conference and a win can certainly get them back in the hunt, but a loss will more than likely lead to a disappointing season for one of the two.

WAKE FOREST (3-3) at #17 BOSTON COLLEGE (6-0)
The Deacons are coming off a huge upset of Duke a week ago and nearly upset #15 Maryland a few weeks back. They will need to find different ways to get star receiver Taurean Atkins the ball. However Boston College has the home field advantage as well as the nations leading rusher in the backfield Marcus Clifford. Should be a good one.

#1 WISCONSIN (5-0) AT OKLAHOMA (3-2)
Wisconsin brings in the nations most dominate rushing attack and defense. In five games the Badgers have giving up just 21 points and only 7 in the last four games. For the Sooners they look to get back on track after a heartbreaking Red River Shootout with Texas. They can salvage their season with a home win over the Badgers as the Sooners still have one of the better home field advantage in all of college football including a 2-0 record this year.

UTAH (3-2) AT OREGON (3-2)
In a rematch of last years Pac-12 championship where the Utes blew then #1 Oregon out, the Utes are looking to get back on track and save their season as they sit at 1-2 in conference play a 3-0 start was quickly shut down after two straight losses for the Utes. For Oregon whose 2-0 in the conference brings in the fourth highest scoring offense in the nation led by the duo of quarterback John Miller to receiver DaMarcus Brittain. Look to continue and improve after two tough losses by a combined score of 6 points. Its a night game in Eugene at the zoo, will be tough for Utah.


COLLEGE GAMEDAY, GAME OF THE WEEK
#7 MIAMI (5-0) AT #22 DUKE (4-1)
Last season the Canes were upset at home by the Blue Devils in a 38-31 thriller. This time around the canes seem to be all around a more talented team then Duke. Cane quarterback Titus Allen already predicted a win, stating: " Ive had this game circled on my calender all year, we will win this game." He leads the conference in passing yards and looks to have a breakout game against a average Duke pass defense. Josh Webb, the fantastic receiver for Duke will need to be on the same page with quarterback Sylvester George whose having a exceptionally good season but not a good game last week throwing his first two interceptions of the year in a upset loss to Wake Forest.

BLAZER WEEKLY

KEEP ON ROLLIN'
THE UNDEFEATED BLAZERS FOCUSES ON THEIR NEXT OPPONENT, TWO TIME DEFENDING SEC CHAMPS, SOUTH CAROLINA


(BLAZERS HOPE TO CONTINUE STRONG PLAY FROM THEIR DEFENSE WHEN THEY MEET THE GAMECOCKS)

BIRMINGHAM - The next two days will serve as Fall Break on campus but it will be anything but that for the number 6th-ranked UAB football team as the Blazers continue to prepare for Saturday's matchup against South Carolina in Columbia.
Kickoff for the Blazers and the Gamecocks is scheduled for 3:39 p.m. and the game will be televised nationally on CBS. A sellout crowd of over 85,000 is expected at William Brice Stadium for UAB's first trip there.
UAB enters the game ranked No. 6 in the nation and ranked in the top 10 for the second straight week.
The Gamecocks, who haven't played up to standard, are coming off a 21-17 win over Kentucky. They are 3-2 overall and 1-2 in conference action. Throw the records aside and the Gamecocks, who won the National Championship two seasons ago are the two time defending SEC champs.
"We had a good week so far," head coach Travis Rhatigan said following Wednesday's workout. "I enjoy how this team prepares and how they take the field each day at practice with the attitude of getting better.
"This team has fun and I enjoy the effort in which they work. There's a real want to improve each day. We recognize it's going to be a big game in an opponent's stadium, and we're looking forward to it."the three on the road including a hard fought 24-17 win at Auburn two weeks ago.
"We're young, but I can sense the maturation of our team." Sophomore Linebacker Timi McCollum said after Wednesday's practice. "We work hard and have fun, our coaches do a great job in scouting our opponents and giving s the keys to win our games." McCollum is second on the team in tackles but leads the NCAA with 8.5 sacks.
UAB is currently 3-0 having won two of
The Blazers will have a shortened Thursday practice before departing Friday afternoon for South Carolina.

Rhatigan Speaks to Media Prior to South Carolina Game

"South Carolina is a very good football team. I've been looking forward to this because I've been told Columbia is a wonderful place to play. Their game day experience is one of the best in the SEC. They have a crowd that is into their team and makes a lot of noise. Our guys enjoy that type of environment. It is also another primetime nationally televised game. Our guys love that. It speaks to us in an environment like that. It is another challenge. The good news is that we've been on the road and understand it. We're getting to a point where our road character is established, as is our personality. Offensively, they are a very talented offense with a good quarterback. I believe they're struggle with establishing the run is what hurt them in their two losses to Arkansas and Alabama. One of their most dangerous players is Eric Fogle, a great receiver, so we'll try to get our hands on him as much as possible."
"Defensively, they are a very stingy defense, surprises me that they have two losses with this defense. It will be a different challenge for us offensively. We'll need to make sure that our guys are comfortable in their technique and able to adjust in a tough environment against their big front. Their secondary is very very good. They have a veteran safety in Marcus Harper who is a ball hawk. They look like a veteran secondary. They're always in the right place and making tackles. They are a real quality group.
I've never had the opportunity to take a team into South Carolina. I think it will be one of those things that our team will enjoy and need to play up to."

KEY STAT NOTES
  • Quarterback Adam Dyks is fifth in the NCAA in passing yards with 1,749. He has 17 touchdowns and 9 interceptions
  • Running Back Matthew Scott is second in the NCAA in rushing yards behind BC's Clifford with 743 yards. He has 9 rushing touchdowns as well.
  • Senior Receiver Ian Wilson is fifth in the NCAA in receiver yards and second in the SEC behind Georgia's Scott Davis. Wilson has 678 yards and 8 touchdowns on 26 catches
  • Safeties Dominique Rhodes and Carl Lewis along with Linebacker Timi McCollum are all 1,2,3 in the NCAA in tackles
  • Sophomore's Timi McCollum and Marcus Leak are #1 and #3 respectively in the NCAA for sacks with 8.5 and 6.5
  • Return Specialist Roderick Brooks is second in the NCAA with a 29.7 return average but leads the country with two touchdown returns with a long of 101 yards

For UAB this will be quite the challenge, South Carolina in a sense could be a trap if you look at the record. These Gamecocks are still defending conference champs playing with their back to the wall at home. South Carolina will need to get their running game going. Running back J. Waters is averaging only 52.8 yards a game but he's averaging 5.3 yards per carry. Lack of a rush attack has hurt the gamecocks who have been one dimensional thus far this season. Quarterback J. Downing has thrown 9 touchdown passes but has also thrown 10 interceptions. The bright spot offensively has been receiver E. Fogle the senior is top five in the conference with 505 yards receiving and is averaging 14 yards a catch. If the defense can continue to play good football the Gamecocks have a chance for the upset.
UAB offense is finally catching up to the defense as they rank #6 in total offense. Freshman Adam Dyks will look to shake off a mediocre performance against Texas A&M last week and perform well against a very good Gamecock secondary. Matthew Scott is starting to get back into last years form running the football and is a threat to take any carry the distance as he leads the conference in rushing yards. It will be interesting to see how UAB's star studded receiving core stack up to South Carolina's secondary. Ian WIlson and Matt Ford will look to exploit one on one match ups to get the offense going. Defensively UAB leads the nation with 33 sacks led by middle linebacker Timi McCollum who does a good job in disguising when he blitzes. The lack of the run game for South Carolina may allow UAB's front seven to bring the pressure and control the game.

NO. 6 UAB SHUTS DOWN GAMECOCKS, IMPROVE TO 7-0

(MCCOLLUM AND COMPANY SWARM TO A GAMECOCK BALL CARRIER)

COLUMBIA, SC-- It was Military appreciation day for South Carolina, but the fans couldn't help but appreciate the dominating performance from the UAB Blazers. In front of the second-largest crowd in William-Brice Stadium history, No. 6 UAB scored 17 points in a span of 2:24 early in the first quarter and took a 17-3 halftime lead on their way to a 38-24 win on Saturday. The announced crowd of 84, 950 witnessed another dominating performance but not from the home team, as UAB (7-0, 4-0 SEC) was led by tailback Matthew Scott who finished on the ground with 193 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries. Senior Marcus Rutledge added another touchdown on the ground while wide receiver Ian Wilson caught six passes for 148 yards including a 41 yard touchdown grab to start the game.
On defense the youthful secondary turned another great performance intercepting the ball four times including Anthony MacFarland returning his 65 yards for the score putting UAB up 14-0 early in the first quarter. Middle Linebacker imi McCollum grabbed 6 tackles and he and the UAB front seven was all over the Gamecocks rushing attack holding them to just 19 first half yards on the ground. Safety Dominic Rhodes ended any late game hopes of a comeback with his interception in the fourth quarter.

Wearing its Nike Pro Combat Wounded Warrior Uniforms, South Carolina looked wounded as they were outgained 422 to 291.
In what was billed as a make or break game for the Gamecocks. UAB never trailed and South Carolina rarely threatened the vaunted UAB defense which had 10 tackles for loss including two sacks and forced four interceptions with an interception returned for a touchdown.

South Carolina (3-3, 1-3 SEC) was led by sophomore running back John Waters who got 118 yards on the ground. Speedy receiver Eric Fogle was held catch-less until the fourth quarter when he hauled in a 66 yard bomb, he would finish with three receptions for 90 yards.
Quarterback Jeremy Downing was sacked twice but managed two late rushing touchdowns. Of South Carolina's 291 total yards, 233 came in the seond half as the Blazers held them to just 58 first half yards.

UAB took the opening kickoff to the defining sound of the Gamecock faithful but quieted them quickly with a 41 yard scoring strike to Ian Wilson, the score would make Wilson the all time career leader in touchdown receptions with 37 and UAB was up 7-0.

(IAN WILSON LOOKS ON TO THE CROWD AFTER BECOMING THE SCHOOLS CAREER RECEIVING TOUCHDOWNS LEADER)

"Ian has been a great receiver for us since I became coach." Coach Rhatigan said after the game. " He routinely has made plays for us, I'm proud of his accomplishment."
It was the defense turn to shine, in particular freshmen cornerback Anthony McFarland who had the dubious task of covering one of the conference most dangerous receivers in Eric Fogle. But he was up to the challenge and facing a third and eight Downing fired a ball to the tightly covered Fogle and McFarland jumped the ball and zipped down the field 65 yards putting UAB up 14-0.

(GAMECOCK PLAYERS SCREAM FOR A UNSPORTSMANLIKE PENALTY ON MCFARLAND AFTER TAUNTING THE FANS DURING HIS INTERCEPTION RETURN)

By halftime it was 17-3 and despite two interceptions thrown by quarterback Adam Dyks, the Blazers still were in control of the game.
After Downing would throw his third interception in the third quarter this time by McCollum, back up running back Marcus Rutledge carried the ball in from seven yards out to put the Blazers up 24-3. The gamecocks would try to mount a comeback as Downing grabbed to rushing touchdowns to start the fourth quarter to bring the Gamecocks to within seven points at 24-17. But the running of Matthew Scott would ice the game. After gaining three consecutive first downs and milking three minutes off the clock Scott carried the ball in from 20 yards out to give the Blazers a 31-17 lead, Downing would throw his fourth interception of the game to safety Dominic Rhodes and four plays later Scott closed the deal from three yards getting the score.
--
(MATTHEW SCOTT HELPED CONTROL THE FOURTH QUARTER ALONG WITH SAFETY DOMINIC RHODES (PICTURED RIGHT) WITH THIS INTERCEPTION.)

"We dominated third downs today." Said Rhatigan. " When you can keep the chains moving and keep the ball out of their hands its always a plus."
The Blazers were 5 for 7 on third down conversions and holding South Carolina to just 4 for 10.
"We also got a mean streak about ourselves. When they brought the game within seven and Dyks struggling, we chose to run the ball, and we ran effectively. Gotta give the big guys credit up front."
The Blazers rushed for 88 yards in the fourth quarter, and 203 on the ground overall.
Next up for the Blazers is a trip to Kentucky to take on the Wildcats next Saturday.

HEADLINES:
  • FITTING IN: #3 UAB looking part in its first SEC season
  • Running back Marcus Crawford and the #12 Boston College Eagles playing for respect
  • Vince Alston has Boise back in contention
  • USC reaping recruiting class, sit at 6-1
  • Alabama enters No. 1 in BCS first poll
  • Despite loss Wisconsin controls own Big 10 destiny
  • #2 TCU tries to focus as they close in on a Big 12 North title
Heisman Talk:
Its looking like the year of the running back as 4 of the top five candidates are tailbacks. a top the list is Maryland's own Chris Sims Last week he carried the ball 21 times for 145 yards while grabbing another 82 on the receiving end. For the year he sits at 827 yards and 11 rushing touchdowns. He has also help Maryland to a 7-0 start this season. Here are the other four top candidates.
  • Boston College- Marcus Clifford (LW) 31 car, 170 yds, 3 td's
  • UAB- Matthew Scott (LW) 22 car, 193 yds, 2 td's
  • Boise State- Vince Alston (LW) 24-29 332 yds, 4 total td's
  • Iowa- Jose Ashley (LW) 14 car, 60 yds, 5 rec, 121 yds, 1 td.
BCS:
The BCS unveiled its first rankings of the season. Alabama whose No.1 in the coaches and media poll was a unanimous No.1 in the BCS. With the exception of last week's 38-35 win over Ole Miss, Bama has beaten their opponents by well over 20 points in all the other games. Key date for Bama is November 2nd when they travel to Baton Rouge to take #7 ranked LSU. The defending national champs TCU open up at No. 5 two spots behind the team they beat for the title last season in UAB. Iowa surprisingly was No. 2
Heres the top 15 of the BCS
  1. ALABAMA 6-0
  2. IOWA 6-0
  3. UAB 7-0
  4. TCU 7-0
  5. GEORGIA TECH 6-0
  6. ILLINOIS 7-0
  7. LSU 5-1
  8. NEVADA 5-1
  9. BOISE STATE 6-1
  10. WISCONSIN 5-1
  11. MARYLAND 7-0
  12. BOSTON COLLEGE 7-0
  13. AUBURN 4-2
  14. MIAMI 5-1
  15. OKLAHOMA STATE 5-1
TOP GAMES FOR WEEK 9

#5 Georgia Tech (6-0) at #14 Miami (5-1)
The Canes enter this game without starting quarterback T. Allen who sustained a broken foot in last week's loss to Duke. Miami will now look to Jason Johnson to lead the way For the year Johnson is 11 for 17 and 136 yards. The good thing is he hasn't turned the ball over. He and the canes will need to play keep away from one of the rushing offenses in the nation. Averaging 255.2 yards on the ground a game the Yellow Jackets will look to muscle past the Hurricanes. Led by L. Jenkins and three other running backs the Canes will have their hands full.

#22 USC (6-1) at Notre Dame (6-2)
USC has commited to the ground game this year and so far so good. The Pac 12 second leader rusher J. Clancy a Junior will look to tear through a average Notre Dame defense. Speaking Defense USC is also tops in the conference facing the Irish offense ranked #2 in the country. Should be another great battle between the two.

UNLV (4-2) at #9 Boise State ( 6-1)
After two straigh losses UNLV has reeled off three straight wins including upsets over Fresno State (6-1) and BYU (4-4). Now the running rebels sit a top the MWC North with Boise State at 3-0. UNLV's J. Harrison will need to find ways to get top receiver B. Payne the ball. Payne is averaging over 17 yards a catch. Vince Alsotn, Boise Heisman hopeful has been flawless since their week one loss to Boston College. His favorite target in P. Adams brings to this contest 9 receiving grabs for scores and will a undersized UNLV secondary he looks to continue his impressive play.



COLLEGE GAMEDAY, GAME OF THE WEEK!
#12 Boston College (7-0) at #19 Virginia Tech (4-2)

All week BC has talked about why they should be in the top five of the BCS standings. They have a legitimate argument. Tailback Marcus Clifford is the nations leading back and the only one over 1,000 yards on the season. With wins over #9 Boise and #22 USC and win over Virginia Tech on the road should help out the argument. The Hokies have been impressive even in losses to #3 UAB and #10 Maryland. The Nations fourth ranked defense will have to feed off the crowd and stop Marcus Clifford if they want to have a chance.
