Tuesday Morning Sports Report

posted by on January 9 at 9:49 AM

College Football: Florida are National Champions. It wasn’t even close, as the Florida D kept Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith to just 35 yards passing; Ohio State as a team only mustered 82 total yards on offense. In fact, outside of returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown (and then losing one of their most dynamic players to a foot sprain on their very first drive), Ohio Stateóranked #1 since the beginning of the season, undefeated until last nightólooked absolutely outclassed.

Congratulations, Gators.

Also: Seahawks wide receiver Darrell Jackson could be healthy for Sunday’s game against Chicago; Washington State is ranked #22 in college hoops; and the Baseball Hall of Fame votes are due today. Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken Jr. will most likely make it, Mark McGwire most likely not.

Alas, Jay Buhner garnered only one vote.

And zero votes for his commentating skills. Brett Boone a close second at -5.

Not only is WSU at #22, but it is their first ranking since 1983 when Reagan was still in his first term and Depeche Mode was all the rage.

Not only is WSU at #22, but the Huskies and Gonzaga are both unranked for the first time in a long time.

It is good to like hoops in this state--three good teams means more good basketball in the future here.
