in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Welcome back to the working world, folks. I hope you all had a glorious Thanksgiving weekend holiday. I enjoyed the time off by seeing some really good films (“Brooklyn” and a very surprisingly good “Creed“), some good football (highlighted by Stanford’s last second victory over Notre Dame, although it’s always nice to see Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers teams go down), and a little politics thrown in there as well, in Sarasota. Now let’s talk about the truth, and whether…

The Cardinal were felled by a familiar nemesis Saturday night, losing to Oregon 38-36 in a game that left the Pac-12’s playoff hopes in a precarious position. A couple of hours later, Utah was upset in overtime, 37-30 by Arizona, leaving the Pac-12 with no team with less…

Last year, three of teams ranked in the first top four did not make the playoff. What we might find are clues as to how the committee will value certain accomplishments later in the season and what teams still need to work on those resumes. Here are five teams to watch when…

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Everett Golson is showing signs of being the quarterback Seminoles fans hoped when he transferred to Florida State over the summer. After a rough stretch early in the season, Golson is completing 67.2 percent of his passes for 1,449 yards, 11 touchdowns and no interceptions for the ninth-ranked Seminoles. It also marks the third time that a Golson-led team has started a season 6-0. Coach Jimbo Fisher and Golson’s teammates rave about his progress. As far as a self-assessment from…
