Clausen: Trojans, Spartans lead power ratings after solid starts

Friday was the first time in a long time that I haven't seen at least one Hall County game (if not two) on a Friday night. Betsy and I were in Columbus, Ohio, celebrating the 1973 undefeated Ohio State Buckeye team.

Prevost: A look into the numbers for the Georgia-LSU matchup

Toe-to-leather is set for 3:30 p.m. between the hedges of Sanford Stadium and CBS will televise the contest nationally.

SEC Banter: Broaden your SEC horizons

Each week, I consult my handy SEC helmet schedule when deciding the topic for SEC Banter. The schedule shows every game for every SEC team using helmets. It's fantastic to view an entire SEC football season on a single sheet of paper, and I have to admit that the little helmets are kind of cute.

Clausen: Big win lifts North Hall to top of power ratings

We've now seen three weeks of Hall County high school football. Last Friday night, we went to City Park Stadium to see Gainesville take on Buford. I knew going into the game that Buford was loaded with Division-I college prospects. And I also knew that win, lose or draw, this would be a good contest for Bruce Miller's tough-minded Red Elephants. This is the kind of game that prepares your players to make a run at the playoffs and another possible state championship.

Die-hard sports fans have circled Saturday, Sept. 14 on their calendars for months. Fall's most anticipated game awaits. You guessed it: Saturday marks just three more weeks until the NBA preseason tips off in Istanbul, Turkey, when the Oklahoma City Thunder plays the Turkish basketball club Fenerbahce Ulker at Ulker Sports Arena.

Prevost: Georgia's nemesis comes to town

A nemesis is defined as "a formidable and usually victorious rival or opponent." Ninety-nine percent of Georgia fans who read that definition can't help but think of one person: Steve Spurrier.

Clausen: Gainesville tops early power ratings

Welcome to Week 1 of the Hall County Power Ratings for this season. It's a little early to be able to tell about proper placement for these teams in the ratings, but I thought I'd go out on a limb and place the defending Class AAAAA state champion, Gainesville, at No. 1. As a non-partisan high school fan, I'm mighty proud of the terrific effort by last season's Red Elephants, but don't forget the great jobs that North Hall, Flowery Branch and Chestatee did. This looks to be another fine season for local football fans.

SEC Banter: League will flex its muscles in Week 1

My wife has always liked my "big gun" biceps. She knows I work hard to maintain them and it's a nice ego boost when she asks me to "flex those big guns." And, if I don't say so myself, my biceps are pretty sweet.

Prevost: Questions to ponder this season in the SEC

My 6-year-old daughter asks a lot of questions. From "Why does the moon change the tides?" to "How does the tooth fairy decide how much money to give?" She's curious. To paraphrase a Jimmy Buffett song, I know the answers to some of her questions; for many others, I'm looking for suggestions.
