Here is a link to a youtube clip of two of the up and coming American juniors. Both are 17, although Kozlov was 16 in this clip and just turned 17 last week.
Kozlov has been pegged as a future star since he was 12/13. He played in 2 junior grand slam finals last year and is having success in ...

Well, Clemson did beat a Big 12 team by almost 40 with the worst backup QB in the nation. He struggled all year vs the crappy ACC defenses, but had a career night against that tough OU / Big 12 defense.

If teams get a power 5 win for beating Texas, then they should for BYU as ByU has been 30 + points better than UT 2 years in a row.

I make fun of Nadals alleged physical injuries, but there's no doubt to me his psyche and confidence is no longer what it used to be. He was invincible and believed he couldn't be beaten and his opponents didn't believe they had a chance. That's no longer the case. Nadal truly doesn't believe in h...
