  • Bill Bowman's column on college sports: The difference in Division I hoops is apparent

    Five minutes into last week's Bucknell-Syracuse game at the Carrier Dome, Bison freshman point guard Steven Kaspar dribbled the ball toward the hoop and was stoned by fifth-year 'Cuse senior Scoop Jardine.

  • Bill Bowman's college football column: CBS, money and 'puters

    Daughter: Hey, dad. Why is your face so red?
    Me: Oh, honey, it’s too complicated. Six-year-olds don’t always get big-people stuff. Don’t worry about it.

  • Bill Bowman On college football: Bucknell's offense needs to make plays

    It happens once in a while; if not once a season, then probably at least one time every couple of years. Watch enough football and you see a game that brings back Hall of Fame coach John McKay's immortal answer after a loss.

  • Bill Bowman On college football: Some flags just not warranted
