And The Winner Is...

I'm please to announce that BRUT Cologne (aka "Splash On Lotion) has won the vote and is the official title sponsor of Season 2 of the RUTS Dynasty. I'm sure each of us have enjoyed the thrill and aromatic sensation of splashing on a dab of it in 6th grade before the school dance or first thing in the morning after waking up too late to takle a shower. BRUT is really the essence of what the RUTS Dynasty is all about! I expect all league players to be drenched in it for each and every dynasty game! And be on the lookout for a change in the Dynasty Blog Logo!

Schrute Farms was out voted by 1 vote, so the great folks at Schrute Farms, Dwight and Mose Schrute, have accepted our offer to be the official sponsor of the BMOC (Big Man On Campus) Award this season. How lucky are we!!??

He Was Just Trying To Study More

Florida quarterback Cameron Newton was arrested Friday and charged with stealing another student's laptop computer.

Newton was suspended from the team, spokesman Steve McClain said, and was being held in the Alachua County jail in Gainesville. He has been charged with felony counts of burglary, larceny and obstructing justice.

According to the University Police Department, Newton stole the laptop worth $1,700 and threw it out his dormitory window Friday when officers arrived to investigate the theft.

A student reported the computer stolen Oct. 16, according to the police report, and an investigation linked the laptop to Newton five days later when he allegedly used the machine to access the school's network. The school identified the user name as "cnewton," police said.

University police went to Newton's dorm Friday, were invited inside and noticed the laptop on Newton's desk. Officers left the room to confirm that the computer matched the serial code of the laptop reported stolen, according to the report. When they returned, it was gone.

According to police, the laptop had been painted black on the top and had "Cam Newton" written on the top in white paint. Officers found the computer behind a trash bin outside the dorm and learned that "Mr. Newton threw the computer out of his bedroom window," the report said.

Week 2 Preview

#11 Virginia Tech @ #1 LSU
Hokies, Star Freshman, Ready For Death Valley (??)

Season 1 Results ~ Did Not Play

The Virginia Tech Hokies travel to Baton Rouge with one thing on their minds...upsetting the #1 team in the nation. Both the Hokies and the Bayou Bengals are coming off impressive 35 point victories in their respective season openers. Both teams also feature extraordinary stars - LSU with RB/WR Heisman front-runner Trindon Holliday and VA Tech with freshman sensation RB/QB Charles Butler. Holliday smirked this week when asked about Butler coming into Death Valley to steal the show. "We'll see," said Holliday. "What's his name again?"

Holliday: "Who is Charles Butler"

Butler, who is off-limits to the media as a true freshman said through his agent, I mean, team spokesman..."I'm Charles Butler, hear me roar."

The Hokies face an uphill battle. Not only are they playing in the 2nd most hostile stadium in college football, but they must contend with a ferocious Tiger defense that allowed only 2 first downs last week against Florida State, while piling up 503 yards of total offense with an aerial and ground assault. ESPN College Gameday is live on the scene. A victory by the Hokies will plant them smack dab in the middle of the national title race, while an LSU victory will solidify their spot atop of the college football landscape.

#12 Florida @ Miami
Gators & Canes Look For Redemption in Week 2

Season 1 Results ~ Florida 31, South Carolina 29 (Stubucksman was on SC's staff in season 1)

"Week 1 for us was a tropical storm," said Miami Coach StuBucksman. "Week 2 will be a class 5 hurricane."

And so starts the smack talk between two of college football's biggest in-state rivals. Both teams enter the game with 0-1 records, but can right the ship with a big win this week. New Florida Qb Cameron Newton performed admirably against Clemson last week in his first start as a Gator, and Florida has speed, speed, and more speed all over the field.

Florida Celebrates in Season 1 Win Against Miami

Miami ran the option offense in week 1 but StuBucksman has indicated a change may be in store for the Gators. "We've really been executing our fake punt offense well in practice...I think that's our future on offense right now." The winner of this game will need to take care of the football, control the line of scrimmage and clock, and score more points than the other team. It's that simple.

#3 Clemson @ #25 Georgia
Clemson Looks To Continue Its "Reloading" Season In Athens

Season 1 Results ~ Clemson 42, UGA 10

The Clemson Tigers ride into Athens this week to face the Bulldogs. Clemson, who faced its toughest test in its RUTS Dynasty history last week against Florida, looks to move to 2-0 on the season, while the Dawgs look to rebound after a crushing defeat against Virginia Tech, in which they gave up 70 points to the Hokies. Although Clemson lost a lot of proven talent from its offensive roster this season, Georgia's defense will have to play lights-out to slow down CJ Spiller in the backfield.

Ole Miss @ #17 Florida State
Rebels Rising, While Noles Look To Parker To Spark Offense

Season 1 Results ~ Did Not Play

Ole Miss got its RUTS dynasty season off to a rousing start last week by defeating Miami in a minor upset. QB Jevan Snead and WR Marshay Green provided just enough offense to squeak by the Canes. The Seminoles, who last season rode its offense to a 10 win season, find themselves searching for an identity on offense, and hope to avoid an 0-2 start to this season. Look for the Noles to turn to do-it-all playmaker Preston Parker to give the team a needed lift this week. An Ole Miss win would move them to 2-0 before next week's battle against Southern Cal. More importantly, a Rebel win would likely lead to a 7-0 start the season, as the next 5 games are against cpu teams, before a brutal final stretch of the season.

Haag Named "Head Coach In-Waiting" at LSU

Following the trend of other NCAA schools, the LSU Tigers have named Noah Haag (ps3 screen name to be determined) as their "Head Coach In-Waiting." Haag will assume head coaching responsibilities upon UTVOL54's retirement in the year 2029, making him the youngest head coach in college football history.

Week 1 Preview ~ Season Kicks Off With A Bang

Season 2 is here, and it's getting kicked off in style. Week 1 features a slew of huge ACC/SEC match ups that could shape the course of each team's season. Everybody has a clean slate and an 0-0 record, and several story lines make this week intriguing.

#6 Florida @ #3 Clemson
Season 1 Results ~ Did Not Play
The Gators head to Clemson to face the defending national champions. Both teams have their share of uncertainty heading into the season, but each return speed and talent all over the field. Can Florida's Cameron Newton manage the game and effectively replace Tim Tebow at QB? Can the Tigers' Willie Korn step in at QB and lead Clemson to another title, like Cullen Harper did last season? Will CJ Spiller replace Heisman Trophy winner James Davis as the Tigers'dynamic playmaker? Will young players on the Gators defense step in to fill the voids of out-going All-Americans Brandon Spikes and Wondy Pierre Louis?
The strengths of each team (Clemson's defense/Florida's offense) go head-to-head and will likely determine the winner of this game. Clemson, playing at home, will need to pressure Newton, contain Gator playmaker Percy Harvin, and create turnovers to win this potential "Instant Classic."

#10 Florida State @ #1 LSU
Season 1 Results ~ LSU 28, FSU 21
The Seminoles make their way to Death Valley for a rematch from week 3 of last season. In one of the best games of season 1, LSU forced a late interception to fend off the Noles and held on for a 28-21 victory. History is on the Seminoles side in this one. Florida State opened up last season with a dominating victory over #1 Georgia in Athens, so they will not be intimidated by playing the top-ranked Tigers in Baton Rouge. The Seminoles will rely on do-it-all playmaker Preston Parker to provide enough offensive firepower to upset the Tigers. LSU returns almost every offensive starter from a team that finished #2 last year, and for the first time in a while, might have to rely on its offense, rather than its typically stingy defense to win early season games. LSU's pre-season All-Americans Jarrett Lee, Trindon Holliday, and Keiland Williams will have an uphill battle facing Florida State's fast and vicious defense, rated an A+ on the game. This one will likely come down to the final few minutes.

#18 Georgia @ #13 Virginia Tech
Season 1 Results ~ Did Not Play

The Bulldogs travel to Blacksburg with a renewed confidence and swagger after finishing last season with a 4 game winning streak and a spot back in the Top 25 poll. Georgia started off slow last season after being ranked #1 to start the season, but the emergence of dynamic RB Knowshon Moreno and the effecient passing of Matthew Stafford lead the Bulldogs to a winning record by season's end. The Hokies enter season 2 with veteran QB Tyrod Taylor looking to command a balance offensive attack with RB Kenny Lewis and TE Sam Wheeler returning for another season. This game will be decided by the Hokies' success in stopping the Georgia clock-eating, running attack and whether or not Stafford can manage the game without forcing balls into coverage. The winner of this game gains confidence and momentum heading into week 2 of the season.

Miami @ Ole Miss
Season 1 Results ~ Did Not Play
Although the Rebels and the Hurricanes both enter the season un-ranked, this matchup could be the most anticipated game of the week. No one knows what to expect out of either team, both being lead by new coaches this season. New Miami Coach StuBucksman has flirted with the idea of bringing the wing-T/wishbone offense to South Beach, but has also mentioned running the spread. He could be just playing mind games with the media (and the Rebels) at this point. StuBucksman, offensive coordinator on Steve Spurrier's South Carolina staff last season, has made it clear that he intends to "haze," "punish," and "indoctrinate" the "Noob" (Rebels Coach Hank9481) into the R.U.T.S. dynasty. Hank9481 also took notice of the insulting comments made by StuBucksman last week regarding Hank's placement of his email reply messages within the body/text of league emails. "It's so annoying," said StuBucksman. So there you have it...a war of words between two teams. But this battle will be decided on the field/tv screen. Can Stu lead the Canes back to national respect and prominance? Can Hank get the Rebs off to a good start in what could be a banner year for the Rebels?

Rumors Abound About Miami's Alleged Recruiting Violations

This week's cover of Sports Illustrated says it all.
Anonymous sources wearing Clemson orange, Hokie maroon, and Seminole garnet submitted the following photos to Commissioner Haag this week. New Miami Coach Adam James Nuney, Esquire had no comment. But Commissioner Haag's office stated that Miami will not be punished if Coach Nunley provides Haag with autographed jersies of the players below (Sapp, Irvin, and Kosar). While Miami is currently a ways down the list of recruiting rankings, they lead the nation in this important category.
