No. 16 Auburn hosts Pat Sullivan-led Samford

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) The suddenly struggling Auburn Tigers will try to rebound against the coach who helped hire Gus Malzahn.

Exclusive: Jim Nantz saved “One Shining Moment” from being cut

When Jim Nantz sat down next to me at the NFL on CBS Media Luncheon in Mid-town Manhattan in 2013 he greeted the table by saying “friends.” Therefore, he said half of his trademark saying “hello friends.” I’m assuming he was addressing Dan Marino, Dan Fouts and Dan Dierdorf (yes, there was an excessive amount of Dans at my table) but I’d like to think I could be considered...

ClayMationNation; Buchholz Fans 12 In 11-0 Win

The tall righty fanned 12 Astros, giving up just three hits on the way to a complete-game shutout of Houston, 11-0. There was no doubt about the dominance of Buchholz from start to finish—he tossed seven...

Red Sox Collect 13 Hits; Lose To Astros, 3-2

(AP Photo/Pat Sullivan)ConstipationNation has returned. After collecting thirteen hits, the Red Sox walked off the Minute Maid Park diamond 3-2 losers. The two plays that best defined the game were double-plays: hit into by David Ortiz with the bases-loaded and Dustin Pedroia (to end the game) with two on. Also, in the 8th inning a weird attempted force play resulted in an failed...

Gortat uses #freeagencysoon in Instagram post with Chris Singelton

Let the overreaction begin! While dining with Chris Singleton and Wizards assistant coach Pat Sullivan in Poland, Marcin Gortat used the hashtag #freeagencysoon. This is certainly not going to go over with some of the Wizards fanbase, wishing for Gortat to stay in D.C. Of course, Gortat’s post does not indicate anything about him leaving. [...]

But there is a recipe for success in Houston for this 2014 season, and I’m here to tell you exactly what that recipe is...

Flashback Friday: Cincinnati vs North Carolina March 28, 1993

A couple weeks ago on twitter back when the Sean Kilpatrick All American talk was taking place, I quizzed people on AAs on twitter. That led to talking about past AA teams, which somehow led to talking about the 1993 NCAA tournament. Someone was trying to remember how the UC game against North Carolina ended. I looked it up and BAM, the game is on YouTube. I've only seen this...
