This teams are not entirely irresistible, nor entirely immovable: Hawaii’s defense is pretty good, however, particularly considering the speed with which the U.H. offense matriculates the ball down the field. So let’s change that old, familiar phrase — “What happens when irresistible Oklahoma meets immovable Nebraska?” — for something a bit different, a bit more fitting for tonight’s Hawaii Bowl — What happens when the scoreboard operator at Honolulu’s Aloha Stadium collapses from exhaustion?
This is always a fun, entertaining, high-scoring affair; in one instance, the Hawaii Bowl combined points with a rather raucous brawl: the 2003 version, pitting the Warriors against Houston, ended with the two teams exchanging punches, kicks and helmets along the 50-yard line.
I doubt we’ll see a “Roadhouse”-style atmosphere at the end of tonight’s game, though we shouldn’t lack for fireworks. These are two enormously tal

There are beards, then there’s the beard worn by Troy punter Will Goggans, unveiled on national television last night in his team’s New Orleans Bowl win over Ohio. In an afternoon and evening lacking in suspense, one could say that Goggans provided the moment of the day. But what is it? Could it really be a beard? A stunt gone wrong? A bet turned sour? One thing is certain: I’ve never seen a beard quite like that. To honor Goggans and his facial growth, I am proud to announce a new, Pre-Snap Read-exclusive award: The Will Goggans Award for best facial hair. This year’s winner, of course, is Goggans.Tags: Goggans, Goggans Award

The final high school football seasons for the seniors of Tennessee High and Sullivan Central didn’t exactly go as planned.
After a 4-0 start, the Vikings won only two of their final seven games and ended the year on a three-game losing skid, including a lackluster 31-7 loss to Knox West in the first round of the 5A playoffs. Central, meanwhile, was unable to build on a dramatic midseason win over Sullivan East and suffered through a winless Big Eight Conference campaign.
But for five Viking and Cougar seniors, high school football isn’t over just yet.
Tennessee High standouts Cody Carter, Bobby Quinn and Brandon Rutherford along with Central stalwarts Taylor Winchell and Colt Cloninger will be on the Northeast Tennessee all-star squad when it takes on the top studs of Southwest Virginia in the inaugural Fellowship of Christian Athletes Senior Bowl at 1 p.m. SatTags: High, High Note

How good was Oregon in 2010? First things first: how good was Stanford? If we can answer the latter question, we find the answer to the first. Well, Stanford was terrific: Rose Bowl-bound, 11-1, 8-1 in the Pac-10, dominant offensively and surprisingly competent on defense. Considering that Oregon dismantled Stanford in a second half barrage back in October, Oregon was very, very good. Superb is a word that comes to mind, particularly after witnessing the Ducks parry jab after jab from conference foes and respond with uppercut after uppercut, serving knockout blows as quickly as that quick-fire offense could get run a play, line back up and run it again.Tags: 2010, 2010 Endofyear

A rematch of last season’s Region D, Division 2 title game proved to be a very different outcome at A.P. Baldwin Gymnasium as Honaker garnered an impressive 68-45 win over arch-rival Lebanon.
The Tigers simply controlled every facet of the game from start to finish.
Lebanon had problems getting the ball into the frontcourt against Honaker. The Pioneers had 19 turnovers in the first half and finished the contest with 29 turnovers.
“We’re still searching for someone to be a ball handler and lead the team,” Lebanon coach Thad Lambert said. “We didn’t find anyone tonight. We tried two or three and nothing seemed to pan out. We just couldn’t get in a groove. For 32 soTags: Lebanon

With yesterday’s news still fresh in our minds, let’s prepare ourselves for the upcoming onslaught of names — both realistic and far-fetched — soon to be associated with the open position at Florida. Let’s throw Jon Gruden’s name out there first, then immediately dismiss it. While Florida is a far better spot than Miami (Fla.), Gruden’s statement regarding that position seemed to close the door on him accepting a position on the college ranks. Bob Stoops will be bandied about: don’t forget that Stoops was Steve Spurrier’s defensive coordinator when the Gators won the national title in 1996. But what of two names, two more logical names, both of whom are more closely associated with Florida’s more recent success?
The first is Dan Mullen; the second is Charlie Strong, Meyer’s defensive coordinator and the first-year coach at Louisville. Both are qualified me

I risked life and limb on some icy roads(not really, it was like a five-minute drive) to watch #1 ranked Wayzata take on Centennial. It was a fun, exciting, competitive game. For about the first three minutes of the game.
Centennial came out with what I actually thought was an excellent game plan, trying to utilize their small speedy forwards to forecheck Wayzata hard, and using their big defensemen to beat up Wayzata physically. Wayzata actually looked like they were a little vulnerable to a heavy forecheck, turning the puck over a few times.
The problem is that a game plan like that requires a lot of discipline. A couple minutes in, Centennial took a bad penalty in the Wayzata end. On the resulting power play, Tony Cameranesi took the puck end to end on a nice rush and scored the game’s first goal.Tags: Centennial, Wayzata Centennial
