Oh my. Savannah State finished 0 for the season. The Tigers became only the second NCAA Division I-A school in 50 years to go through a season without a victory, losing to Florida A&M, 49-44, Monday night to finish 0-28. At least Savannah State didn't go down without a fight, managing its closest loss this season. The Tigers tied the score, 41-41, with 1:57 left when Donald Carson -- son of former New York Giant linebacker Harry Carson -- made two free throws.

The announcement that ESPN would be taking its rollicking GameDay show to North Dakota State this week should have been a tip-off to make weekend getaway plans. The network packages these excursions as wholesome, public service peeks into the subdivisions of football people don't get to see. And they certainly can offer up delicious slices of Americana. It also means ESPN got stuck with a lousy slate of games. Sometimes it just works out that way. Kansas State and Texas looked good on paper only a month ago. But that was before Kansas State lost to - North Dakota State!

Savannah State Coach Ed Daniels was fired Thursday, three days after the Tigers became only the second Division I team in the last 50 years to have a winless season. Savannah State finished 0-28 after a 49-44 loss to Florida A&M on Monday night. The Tigers joined Prairie View, which went 0-28 in 1991-92, as the only other Division I team in the last half century to go winless. The Citadel was 0-17 in 1954-55.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State set two NCAA records and tied another Monday night by holding Savannah State to one field goal and four points in the second half of an 85-25 rout. "I've never seen that. That was crazy," Kansas State forward Michael Beasley said. "That just was not good."

This won't rank among firsts in history alongside Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon, but this weekend's slate of college football games has produced the first 70-point spread in the history of Vegas. Florida State is favored by 70.5 points over Savannah State on Saturday. According to Vegas oddsmakers, we're attributing pregame.com here, that eclipses the 60-point spread Hawaii enjoyed over Northern Colorado in 2007. Just to note, if you took Northern Colorado in that game, you won as Hawaii's winning margin was "only" 57 (63-6)

This just in: Serious muscle was flexed over opening weekend. The playing field was no place for the timid, meek, weak, or sons and daughters of Ann Arbor. "Obviously, we didn't play Michigan football," Michigan Coach Brady Hoke said after Saturday night's 41-14 loss to Alabama in Arlington, Texas. Hoke's team didn't even play Eastern Michigan football. It was "Big Boys Night Out" all over the landscape as the early season took its first stab at separating fact from fraud.

Basketball is a simple game; you just put the ball in the basket, right? Well, easier said than done for Savannah State in the second half of an 85-25 loss to Kansas State on Monday night. The Tigers were one for 23 from the field and were outscored, 48-4, in the second half, setting NCAA records for fewest points and lowest field-goal percentage in a half during the shot-clock era. Joseph Flegler made a three-point basket with 5:48 to play to end the drought and by that time, even Kansas State supporters were rooting for a Tigers basket.

Whether you bet on Florida State or Savannah State on Saturday, you couldn't lose. At least not at Las Vegas sportsbooks that go by the usual rules. The rout-in-waiting that had Savannah State visiting Florida State drew plenty of attention in Las Vegas this week after oddsmakers made the sixth-ranked Seminoles a record 70.5-point favorite. Well, Florida State seemed well on its way to beating that spread, but nobody ended up winning … or losing. Harsh weather forced the game to be stopped early in the third period - short off the 55-minute mark that most Las Vegas books, by rules, consider a complete game.
