WKU executes fake kneeldown, follows up with interception

WKU just lost its coach to Purdue, but they didn’t lose any of their trickeration. Here they are late in the second quarter, lining up in a kneel-down formation deep in their own territory: That’s a really sweet fake, especially since it combines two fakes...

Memphis issues statement, basically declares itself available to Big 12

Tuesday, the Big 12 announced that it had asked the league’s commissioner, Bob Bowlsby, to begin “surveying interest” from other schools in regards to joining the conference.

Richard Sherman sounds off on NFL draft experts

Being selected in the fifth round of the NFL draft will give a player a relatively large chip on his shoulder. When said player has earned three First-Team All-Pro honors, that’s magnified even further. When the player is one Richard Sherman, that chip is probably the size of the entire West Coast.
