Champs Sports Bowl 2010

Champs Sports Bowl 2010 - As recently as two months ago -- and certainly before the season began -- a potential invitation to the Champs Sports Bowl at season's end would have been looked upon as a disappointment for West Virginia's football team.

The hopes and expectations were much higher.

But on Sunday that's exactly the postseason ticket that was punched for the Mountaineers.

The No. 22 Mountaineers (9-3), foiled originally by their own mistakes earlier this season and finally by Connecticut on Saturday night, have been given the Big East's consolation prize. They will likely face unranked North Carolina State (8-4) in the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, which this season replaces the Gator Bowl as the Big East's top non-BCS destination.

The official announcement was not due until later Sunday, but when the Sun Bowl announced that it was pairing Notre Dame with Miami, it was obvious that Florida Citrus Sports, which runs the Champs Sports Bowl, had passed on the 7-5 Irish in favor of a ranked WVU.

N.C. State is widely believed to be the group's choice from the ACC.

The Champs Sports Bowl is Dec. 28 at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium. Kickoff is 6:30 p.m., the game will be televised by ESPN and is one of only two games that day. The other is the Insight Bowl later that night.

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, 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.
