College basketball players are on the move now more than ever. Most programs are in need of that one spark plug to help the team get over that proverbial hump. Here are the top ten college basketball transfers that will help their teams improve this season.
10. Jabari Brown (Missouri) – Brown was a highly talented recruit, which was supposed to help rebuild a Oregon program that hasn’t made it to the NCAA tournament in recent years. After two games in Eugene, the shooter from California jumped ship and will help replace Kim English and Marcus Denmon.
9. Mark Lyons (Arizona) – A former Atlantic 10 standout while at Xavier, Lyons will bring back court depth and leadership to Arizona. Lyons will be making the transition to point guard for his former coach Sean Miller. Continue reading →

Please somebody explain to me why it is called “Capital One Bowl Week?” We are now entering Week 3 of bowl season. Why isn’t it “Capital One Bowl Month?” I would love to hear the reasoning. 12 bowls down, and 23 to go. 19 games will be played between now and next Thursday. Strap in, because the beat will not stop until January 9th as we start to hit the “real” bowl games.
Florida State vs Notre Dame (CHAMPS SPORTS BOWL)
–Fighting Irish by 3
Headline: Brian Kelly brings home a second straight bowl game victory to South Bend.
-Let’s just call this the “Year Away Bowl.” Both of these teams had lofty expectations to play in BCS Bowl games this year. Neither was ready. Notre Dame is slightly closer to being ready in my opinion though. Continue reading →

Week 12 was predominantly filled with blowouts, with a few major upsets sprinkled in. Now the top three teams in the country will come from the SEC. More specifically, the amazing SEC West. The season is starting to come to an end and the BCS picture continues to become clearer…just kidding.
Another one bites the dust
-Heading into this week there were three undefeated teams in all of the land. Now we are down to just two. In shocking fashion, Oklahoma State, who led by 17 points and were playing with heavy hearts, went down to a Iowa State team that is still under 500 in Big 12. What are the chances? Who really saw this coming?
-With Oklahoma State biting the dust, the BCS now finds itself with a major dilemma. Continue reading →
