Todd Gurley Falsely Accused of Assault in Selfie Pic Gone Awry

I'm not sure there's a more ridiculous accusation that can be levied than saying a star running back punched someone because he was angry he was included in the background of a selfie picture, but that's what a Georgia student alleged this weekend.  "The accuser, a 20-year-old UGA student, called police from his home at about 3:18 a.m. to report that he'd been...

Cut to the Chase: The True Heisman Contenders

While he looked like his old self in a 56-41 win over North Carolina State, it did nothing to help Jameis Winston in his chances of winning another Heisman Trophy. Those plans left the building a long time ago with a summer of madness and a fall of broken dreams. Winston is a walking contradiction of a player with too much talent for his own good and a mouth and immaturity that continually...
