Alamo Bowl 2010

Alamo Bowl 2010 - The Washington Huskies and Arizona Wildcats are both awaiting a decision from the Alamo Bowl, leaving each team’s post-season future up in the air. Whichever team the Alamo Bowl leaves behind will head to San Diego for the Holiday Bowl. Once the Alamo’s decision has been made, the dominoes will begin to fall.

With only four Pac-10 teams bowl-eligible, and two going to BCS bowls, the bowl picture is simple for the Pac-10. Oregon will play for the national championship, Stanford will head to whichever BCS Bowl selects them as an at-large and the two other teams — Washington and Arizona — will head to the Alamo or Holiday Bowl.

What’s the difference between the two. Both are prestigious bowls — with the Alamo Bowl the top Pac-10 tie-in, followed closely by the Holiday Bowl. In the Alamo Bowl, whichever Pac-10 team is chosen will square-off against the No. 3 team in the Big 12, likely Oklahoma State. In the Holiday Bowl, it’s another Big 12 team, this time the No. 5 team in the conference. Missouri is projected to take that spot when the pairings are announced on Sunday.

Two bowls, two invitations and two Pac-10 teams awaiting their fate. Either way, the Washington Huskies or Arizona Wildcats will face a Big 12 team, and a tough match-up to boot. With announcements coming within the hour, we should know the fate of both the Huskies and Wildcats soon.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
