College football is back

Will Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly have the same sour look on his face tonight after his Ducks face LSU, or will Oregon get off to another fast start. After that, will Kelly even survive the Willie Lyles scandal?

It’s been a brutal off-season for college football, as the very structure of the sport is coming under attack. Perhaps nobody is to blame, as this system has evolved over the years into a multibillion dollar business while trying to keep the myth of amateur athletics. So you end up with ridiculous rules, and big programs in trouble with tattoo scandals and potential suit scandals as college kids deal with instant fame and boosters who want to spend time with them and give them money. Then you end up with absurd results where champions like USC have to pretend they didn’t win a BCS title because one player broke the rules.

At the same time we have an absurd BCS system that is anything but fair, making a mockery of the whole season, while universities jump around from conference to conference looking for the biggest payday.

With all that, most of us are excited to have the season begin because it’s such a great sport. We love football, and we love the tradition and pageantry associated with the sport. College fans are intense and loyal. We also love our weekly office football pools and friendly wagers with friends.

Tonight we have two great games, with Oregon as a 3.5-point favorite against LSU and Boise State as a 3-point favorite against Georgia. Check out all of the college football lines for today’s games.

The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament has come to Cleveland, OH and with that Infiniti has sponsored a Round by Round Brackets Coaches vs Cancer charity event. This is a great cause with thousands already participating. The goal is to raise $500,000 to fight cancer and if everyone gets involved, Infiniti can far exceed that number.

There really is nothing like the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament and today is at Quicken Loans Arena to watch the Ohio State vs George Mason and Marquette vs Syracuse match ups. As you can see from the photos in our gallery, the energy and excitement in the journey to make the Final Four makes any sports fan stand up! Good luck to all of the teams still in play for the big prize and thanks to Infiniti for playing a lead sponsorship role in the NCAA Final Four Tournament and their efforts in playing a major role in the ongoing battle to beat cancer!

As a side note, check out the photo with George Mason's Band Director. He might be the coolest dude in the Q!
