by BoCarter | Posted on Monday, December 31st, 2012

1993 National Football Foundation Gold Medal recipient Gen. (ret.) Norman Schwarzkopf passed away last Thursday night in Tampa, Fla. He was 78. Gen. Schwarzkopf played on the 1952-55 U.S. Military Academy (Army) football teams under head coach and NFF tri-founder Col. Earl Blaik as well as starring for the Army wrestling team and in choral groups. He later served in numerous active theaters including the Cold War conflict in Berlin, Vietnam, Grenada, and the Middle East. He became Commander in Chief of the U.S. Army Central Command prior to Desert Storm and Desert Shield and commanded over 700,000 allied forces in the operations to stop conquests of Middle East countries by Iraq.

The NCAA FCS championship in Frisco, Texas, has its two finalists determined as defending champ North Dakota State will seek defend its title in a rematch with Sam Houston State Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013. Very limited standing-room-only tickets are available for a limited time via Southland.org and NCAA.com. It’s the first rematch since Marshall and Youngstown State played three consecutive years from 1991-93 in the 35-year history of FCS (formerly Division I-AA). Tickets for the Heart of Dallas Bowl (formerly TicketCity Bowl) Tuesday can be purchased at Theheartofdallasbowl.com. The AT&T Cotton Bowl is a “hard” sellout Jan. 4 in Arlington, and crowd projections are in the 85-90,000 range.

As part of Liberty Mutual’s partnership with the NFF, a selection committee of more than 50 NFF College Hall of Fame players and coaches, including Chairman Archie Manning, Lou Holtz, Vince Dooley, Ronnie Lott, Archie Griffin; as well as national college football media, such as Colin Cowherd, Stewart Mandel and Tim Brando, will evaluate the coaches based on their responsibility, integrity and on-field success to help determine the four coaching winners. Liberty Mutual will announce the four winners the morning of the BCS Championship game, Jan. 7, 2013, in South Florida. The winners in each of the four divisions will receive a $50,000 donation from Liberty Mutual to the charity or charities of their choices as well as a $20,000 scholarship grant in their name to their school’s alumni association. Since 2006, the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award has helped donate more than $1.5 million to over 90 charities and college alumni scholarship funds through the 21 previous winners.
More BCS Notes:
* During 2012 Alabama and Florida were Nos. 1-2 in the first two standings before Kansas State took at over at No. 2 in Weeks 3 and 4. KSU-Oregon gained the first two slots Nov. 11, 2012, before Notre Dame-Alabama became a first-ever combination 1-2 Nov. 18-Dec. 2, 2012. In 2011 LSU held No. 1 position in the BCS for the first eight weeks while Alabama was No. 2 weeks 1-3, 6-8, and Oklahoma State took over No. 2 in weeks 4-5. There were three different 1-2 combinations in the 2010 standings with Oklahoma-Oregon on Oct. 17, Auburn-Oregon on Oct. 24-Nov. 28-Dec. 5, and Oregon-Auburn on Oct. 31-Nov. 7-Nov. 14-Nov. 21. The positions of Nos. 1 and 2 were the same for three weeks (Ohio State and USC) in 2006, and they were fairly predictable from 2003-05, 07, 09-10. In seven 2005 standings, either USC or Texas was No. 1 or No. 2 while in 2004 USC or Oklahoma held down one of the first two spots seven of eight weeks. Miami (Fla.) jumped ahead of Oklahoma in the Oct. 16, 2004, standings from No. 2 to No. 1. Alabama (five weeks), Texas (two) and Oklahoma (one) were the three schools to hold down the No. 1 positions in 2008. Florida was No. 1 in the first seven weeks of 2009 while Alabama was No. 2 six of those seven weeks before replacing Florida after the ’09 SEC championship tussle. Texas ended ’09 at No. 2.
* The Nos. 1 and 2 teams in BCS standings have met five times in regular seasons (2000 and ’01 – Nebraska-Oklahoma; 2006 Michigan-Ohio State; 2009 Alabama-Florida; and 2011 Alabama-LSU). The No. 2 team is 3-2 all-time, and the home squad had won the first four meetings before LSU upended Alabama 9-6 in overtime at Tuscaloosa in Nov. 2011.
* SEC teams have won the last six BCS titles since Texas nabbed the crown after the 2005 season. Alabama, already a two-time winner in 2009 and ’11, bids to become the first repeat champion in the 15-season history of the BCS and to bring the BCS trophy back to the state of Alabama for a record fourth consecutive year after Auburn prevailed in 2010.
