The notion that the NCAA is an organization concerned with the business of higher learning… OK, you got me, I can’t go any farther. I have done some research and… again, you got me.

I have simply used common sense and I’ve come to the conclusion that the NCAA is interested in one thing and one thing alone: Benjamin Franklin.

Arizona continued their impressive start, advancing to the finals of the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu, but Duke and Michigan also remained unbeaten and held on to the top spots in PSR's rankings.

Syracuse and Illinois fell from the ranks of the undefeated as Temple and Missouri knocked them off over the weekend, but Cincinnati continued to roll.

New York City just let out a sigh of grief and despair. If the walls of Madison Square Garden could talk, they’d ask why? Why must the cities of Syracuse and Hartford become strangers that are four hours apart from one another?

Why are Morgantown and Pittsburgh merely two towns separated by one interstate?

Butler's upset of Indiana knocked the Hoosiers all the way out of the Top 5, and Arizona's comeback win over Florida moved Sean Miller's Wildcats up to No. 3, but unbeaten Duke still hung on to the top spot.

The week ahead is fairly tame as far as top-flight non-conference games are concerned, as the holiday break looms, but between Christmas and New Year's lies some excellent Top 25 match-up

Once upon a time, as former NFL head coach Jim Mora so eloquently put it, “Playoffs?!?!?!?!” We are counting down the days till we no longer have to deal with our dear old friend, the BCS.

Duke is the top team in the first PSR college basketball poll of the season. The Blue Devils are 9-0 and own impressive victories over Ohio State, Kentucky, Louisville and Minnesota. Indiana, Michigan and Florida also received No. 1 votes.

Duke is off this week, but Saturday brings a good slate of games as No. 2 Indiana squares off against Butler, No.

Notre Dame and Alabama will square off for the BCS National Championship one month from now, but PSR's voters will conduct one final poll after the bowl games are completed next month.

While the Fighting Irish and Crimson Tide will be the main attraction, there are plenty of other interesting bowl match-ups on the way, including Northern Illinois vs.

Every year the BCS pisses us off. Let’s not be circumspect about the details; it’s a pathetic, money-making, rob the poor, pay the rich, corporate America-first system that has been flawed since it began.

Let’s take a look at the top five reasons why it will ruin the game of college football for a 14th straight year:
