California fires Tedford after dismal 3-9 season

Jeff Tedford’s 11-year reign as head football coach with the California Bears ends on a dismal note.

After a season of injuries to key players, he was fired with a 3-9 record in 2012.

Tedford, an offensive genius and recruiter, led an impressive turnaround for the California program after taking over for a one-win team following the 2001 season.

He won 82 games, which is a school-record. His accomplishments also included sending numerous players to the NFL, leading the school’s facilities upgrade, which included the $321 million renovation of Memorial Stadium, home of the football team.

Tedford had two 10-win seasons in his first five years and a share of the 2006 PAC-10 title. From 2006 until his firing, he was unable to get the Bears into the national spotlight with so many NFL-type players.

Virginia Commonwealth University is a member of the NCAA Mid-major conference, Colonial Athletic Association.

The CAA is often disrepected by the national media, but it is a solid conference with VCU, Old Dominion, Northeastern, George Mason, Delaware, Drexel, Georgia State, Hofstra, James Madison, North Carolina-Wilmington and William & Mary.

The 11th-seeded team Rams used a suffocating defense to corral the taller and stronger USC Trojans in winning 59-46. The Rams up their record to 24-11.

Jamie Skeen scored 16 points to lead VCU into a showdown against sixth-seeded Georgetown (21-10) on Friday in Chicago.

Jio Fontan scored 14 points and Nikola Vucevic 11 for USC (19-15), which managed only one field goal over the final 9 minutes of the game.

The Rams shut down Vucevic, a first-team All-Pac-10 performer, was double and triple-teammed and never got into a rhythm.

The halftime score was 22-22.

In the 2nd half, the Rams found their shooting shoes to go up 34-27. USC came back  to 44-43 but VCU pulled away never to give up the lead ever again.

Shaka Smart, the VCU coach was making a return to UD Arena. He used to be on the staff of the Dayton Flyers under Oliver Purnell as the head of basketball operations in the last decade.

Ohio State senior center Jantel Lavender was named the Big Ten co-Player of the Year by a panel of media, becoming the first women’s basketball player in conference history to earn the award four times.

Lavender is also the only women’s basketball player among the Big Ten, ACC, Big East, Big 12, Pac-10 or SEC to accomplish the feat. She shares player of the year honors with Michigan State’s Kalisha Keane, who was voted top player by the conference coaches.

Lavender became the first Big Ten freshman to win Player of the Year honors (media) in 2008 when she shared the award with Wisconsin’s Jolene Anderson (coaches choice). She has won the award outright the previous two seasons.

Lavender, a unanimous first team all-Big Ten selection by the coaches and media, led the Big Ten in scoring 22.6 ppg, rebounding 10.7 rpg, and field goal percentage .532 this season en route to her fourth player of the year award. She also ranked in the top 10 in free throw percentage at 80.6 percent (125 of 155) and was fifth in the league with 51 blocked shots. She picked up six conference player of the week honors this season, pushing her career total to 18, the most in Big Ten history. The native of Cleveland, Ohio, became the Big Ten’s all-time rebounding leader this season, racking up 1,352 boards in her career. She also became Ohio State’s all-time scorer with 2,677 points and just the second player in conference history to accumulate 2,600 points.

MacArthur Bowl Trophy claimed by Auburn Tigers

The National Football Foundation & College Football Hall of Fame (NFF) has presented the MacArthur Bowl to the Auburn Tigers, who finished 14-0 as their reward for beating the Oregon Ducks, 22-19 in the Tostitos BCS National Championship Game before a sellout crowd of 78,603 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Oregon finishes the season at 12-1.

NFF President & CEO Steven J. Hatchell handed the national championship trophy to Auburn head coach Gene Chizik who accepted the trophy on behalf of his program which marked the 52nd time that a team has claimed the prestigious trophy.

Wes Bynum kicked a 19-yard field goal as time expired and #1 Auburn beat #2 Oregon.

Oregon had tied the game at 19 with 2:33 left when Darron Thomas found Jeff Maehl on a tying two-point conversion pass after LaMichael James scored on a shovel pass.

Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton and the Tigers of Auburn went back to work with a 73-yard drive, with freshman Michael Dyer making key plays. He ran over several Oregon players and when the play wasn’t blown dead, he ran another 32 yards to the 23 -yard line.

One play later, Dyer scampered for 16 yards up the middle to the 1-yard line.

Newton was pushed back a yard on the next play, bringing on Bynum with two seconds to kick the game winner and give Auburn its first national championship since 1957 and the Southeastern Conference’s fifth in a row. It also was the second straight year that the state of Alabama has won the national title. In 2010, the Alabama Crimson Tide located in Tuscaloosa won it. And now in 2011, Auburn University from Auburn, Alabama which is near Phenix City and Opelika, has won it.

Auburn is the 2010 SEC Champions and Oregon the 2010 Pac-10 Champions.

The MacArthur Trophy was not presented until 1959. This is the first time the Auburn program has won the award.

The 1957 Auburn Team, coached by Hall of Fame Coach Shug Jordan, went 10-0 and claimed the Associated Press national championship. The Tigers’ win continues the streak of SEC teams to claim the national crown, becoming the fifth straight SEC team to win the title game.

Representing the pinnacle of team achievement in college sports, the trophy was the gift of an annonymous donor, who commissioned Tiffany & Company to craft it from 400 ounces of silver, in honor of NFF founder General Douglas A. MacArthur. It took eight months to make, and the trophy features MacArthur’s famous quote: “There is no substitute for victory.” The 2010 Auburn team will now have its name etched on the silver trophy, which will visit Auburn, Alabama, until the 2011 champions claim it. Last year, more than 500,000 people saw the trophy while it was on display in Tuscaloosa, Alabama after the Crimson Tide’s win in the BCS title game.
