With nine on-air personnel, a host of technicians and close to five hours of air time, ESPN certainly did treat Saturday's Florida State-Miami game as if it were a Super Bowl.And golly, with all that buildup, didn't the rather easy 34-20 Hurricanes victory feel like the genuine article, which, oddly enough, will be played in Miami this season?The outcome of the game, of course, was out of ESPN's control, but apart from Ron Franklin's play-by-play, Mike Gottfried and Craig James' analysis and Mike Tirico's studio work, the total sports network made Saturday's encounter seem totally tedious.

LOCUST GROVE, Va. -- The longest golf hole in America has two lakes, four tees, a sand trap shaped like a three-leaf clover and a green roughly the size of Utah.To call the No. 12 hole at the Meadows Farms Golf Course long would be like calling the Empire State Building tall.This preposterous piece of golf real estate stretches from a stand of pines, doglegs to the right down a hill, and rambles across what was once a rolling field filled with cattle.It is 841 yards.Par is 6.The only thing missing is a bus stop.

Tiger Woods , we know, has eliminated himself from the FedEx Cup postseason. Without a good performance in the Wyndham Championship, a few more prominent names could find themselves on the sideline. Hall of Famer Ernie Els , Padraig Harrington and Angel Cabrera — winners of a combined eight major championships — were late additions to this week's stop in Greensboro, N.C., in a desperate shot at cracking the top 125 in points for a berth in The Barclays. And if someone does play well enough, he could knock out No. 125 Camilo Villegas — three years ago the FedEx Cup runner-up.
