A high school football star's rape case is dividing an entire town

As the gavel pounds, silence waves through a small country courtroom. A dozen spectators stand in the corner while the rest of the gallery, buzzing moments earlier, is seated in near unison. During a Nov. 24, 2015 hearing, there's not a single empty seat in the Baldwin County courthouse. Cameron Harrison, charged with first-degree rape, sits quietly in front, his blond hair neatly...

5 great BYU-Utah moments in the Mendenhall-Whittingham era

A wonderful symmetry has existed over the past 10 years of the BYU-Utah football rivalry, discontinued in 2014 but happily renewed in Saturday’s upcoming Las Vegas Bowl: Both coaches took over their respective programs at the same time. Bronco Mendenhall — who will coach his final game for BYU before leaving for Virginia — gained his seat of power before the 2005 season. Kyle...

Why I hate the Washington Redskins (and you should too)

When you’ve been a Dolphins fan for as long as I have, you learn to hate every other team in the National Football League. Of course I love football, and of course I’ll have certain rooting interests in non-Dolphins games, but when push comes to shove, I’d see all 31 other teams get sucked down to the bowels of Hell if it meant the Dolphins could win the Super Bowl. I believe...

Cougars looking for special season with Hill at the controls

It’s well-documented that when BYU has a healthy starting senior quarterback, the Cougars produce a special season. It happened with guys like Marc Wilson, Jim McMahon, Steve Young, Steve Sarkisian, Brandon Doman, John Beck and Max Hall. Can it happen with Taysom Hill?Certainly Hill, who is coming off a season-ending leg injury, feels a sense of urgency.“Realizing that I’m...

The list is the complete opposite of a who's who. Patrick Ramsey Mark Brunell Todd Collins Jason Campbell Donovan McNabb John Beck Rex Grossman Kirk Cousins Robert Griffin III Colt McCoy Those guys have been the starting quarterbacks for the Redskins since 2004. And one masochistic Washington fan has a jersey for every single one of those signal-callers. Thank goodness the fan in...

Is the 2006 BYU football team the best to ever come out of the MWC?

Which football team is the best to ever play in the Mountain West Conference? SB Nation recently put out a poll to help determine the answer to that question, and a fired up BYU fan base helped elevate the 2006 Cougars to the No. 1 spot, by a single vote. However, there has been an outcry by those who oppose the results and say that the 2012 Boise State squad is the best there ever...

When to Start Your Rookie Quarterback

Mission I wanted to see what the current behavior was for NFL teams when drafting QBs and then starting those QBs. Which started fastest, which were developed longest, what was the current behavior, and should that behavior change in light of success rates seen? Methodology Since we know the NFL is ever evolving, and is becoming more of a passing league even in the last 5 years than...

Remembering When All Was Right With RGIII

Here with a guest post for accurately predicting Redskins-Seahawks is Mr. Irrelevant reader jake. It’s good. In this time of depression and hopelessness with the Washington Football Team I thought I’d use my guest post to go back to a time when, for one night at least, everything was perfect. At midnight on 9 September 2012 I was sitting in the Green Bean coffee cafe at Manas...

Photo: Kid Takes Awesome Selfie With Kentucky’s Dakari Johnson, Too Short To Fit In Frame

One of the most thrilling things for a young sports fan is getting to take a picture with a favorite player. You frame it, show it off to your friends, post it on all the social media networks, etc.  John Beck O’Daneil, a 12-year-old Kentucky fan, had the privilege of taking a photo with Wildcat big man Dakari Johnson. He struggled a bit in the execution of the selfie, though...

Top 10 Miami Dolphins draft busts

The thought of the Miami Dolphins drafting the next great Dolphin excites me every draft. I’m equally fearful of the thought of the Miami Dolphins drafting the next big Dolphin bust. Today we’re going to talk about the latter, in the hopes that Dennis Hickey can avoid busting in this year’s draft, and because it’s fun to torture ourselves by looking at the many mistakes of...

The NFL Draft is a Crapshoot for The Miami Dolphins

The clock ticks toward the 2014 draft and every Dolphin fan chews stubby fingernails waiting for the inevitable “Ted F-ing Ginn” moment. Remembering where you were when the commissioner stepped to the podium and announced, “With the 9th pick in the 2007 draft, the Miami Dolphins select… Ted Ginn Jr from The Ohio State University” is a rite-of-passage for Dolphin fans. Man...

QB problems are Shanahan's Redskins legacy

If these are indeed Mike Shanahan's final days with the Washington Redskins, his legacy will be the inability to make things work at quarterback. From Donovan McNabb to Rex Grossman, from John Beck to Robert Griffin III, for one reason or another Shanahan has whiffed at the most important position on the field in his four years in D.C. Just when Griffin appeared to be the answer...
