Claude Julien: Bruins Earned ‘Ugly Home Win’ Against Jets (Video)

The Boston Bruins beat the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 on Friday, but it wasn’t very pretty. The Jets took the lead in the first period, and the Bruins couldn’t get anything going until the third period before ultimately winning in overtime.

Raising Arizona: The Wildcats Rise While UCLA Falls, Creating A Dramatic Plot Twist In The Pac-12 South

It is remarkable to think that just a few weeks ago, on Nov. 15 in Tucson, Arizona, the Washington Huskies — with a first down and under 1:40 on the clock with the Arizona Wildcats having only one timeout — had just about defeated Rich Rodriguez. All Washington had to do with a 26-24 lead was kneel three times. The Huskies would have drained the clock inside 10 seconds. They...

Marshall And Colorado State Lose, Recalling Familiar Feelings For College Football’s Lower Classes

Late in a college football season, division and conference championships are won and lost. Prestigious bowl bids — life-changing achievements for the players and coaches at various programs — hang in the balance. The pressure of late-season college football is excruciating, and it’s precisely why 13-0 is one of the hardest feats in sports, no matter how soft the schedule. There...

Rich Rodriguez Went Absolutely Insane After A Late Personal Foul Call

Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez was all smiles after his Wildcats upended Arizona State for the Pac-12 South title, but in the game’s final minutes, he almost blew a gasket after his senior lineman Steven Gurrola got an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty when the team was lined up in the victory formation. Rodriguez practically had steam coming out of his ears while trying to get...

CFB Playoffs: Confusion Still Rules The Rankings

There is not much change in this week’s College Football Playoff rankings.  Thanks to the collapse by No. 8 Ole Miss in its 30-0 loss at Arkansas, the playoff committee moved UCLA, Georgia and Michigan State, respectively, into slots 8-10 to fill the Rebels’ void.  The reason there were few changes is because there were few Top 25 matchups.  Besides UCLA (9) vs. Southern Cal...

49ers Can’t Allow Seahawks to Eat Turkey On Logo

It is one thing to be embarrassed by the Seattle Seahawks on your own turf before a national television audience, it is another realizing Colin Kaepernick has regressed as spectacularly as Robert Griffin III over the past two years. And it is quite another for the National Broadcasting Corporation to set up shop on your team’s midfield logo and have Russell Wilson and Richard...

Arkansas’ Jonathan Williams Celebrated TD With “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Pose

Arkansas junior running back Jonathan Williams has had himself a day thus far for the Razorbacks, both rushing for 54 yards on 10 carries and hauling in a 23-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. But what he did after the score might have been his biggest statement Friday.  Williams, clearly showing that he supports protestors in Ferguson, Missouri, made the “hands up, don’t...

Why the Bills should regret the Sammy Watkins trade

Every year in late April or early May we go through NFL draft revisionist history. We wonder what would happen if, say, the Miami Dolphins selected Matt Ryan in 2008 as they should have. Or how the NFL would be a much different place if the Oakland Raiders weren’t absolutely horrible at drafting, player evaluation, and generally being a competent organization. When we go through...

Jimmy Fallon gives the Seahawks and 49ers superlatives

Jimmy Fallon’s Superlatives segment on The Tonight Show is one of our favorites, and he’s gone after sports stars on occasion. On Wednesday’s show, he stuck superlatives onto members of the Seahawks and 49ers, who faced off on NBC Thursday night. The results were predictably hilarious. Poor, poor Colin Kaepernick. First he gets compared to a chain-smoking mall elf, then he...
