Report: Christian Hackenberg blaming struggles on James Franklin

Former Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg is reportedly throwing coach James Franklin under the bus over his regression, and NFL teams don’t think much of that. Hackenberg was brought to Penn State by Bill O’Brien and had a great freshman year under the current Texans coach. But Hackenburg has struggled under Franklin since O’Brien left for the NFL, throwing 28 touchdowns...

Brewers reliever Will Smith injures knee...taking off his shoe

If there’s one thing baseball players are good at (besides playing baseball, I guess), it’s getting injured in ridiculous ways. From Sammy Sosa throwing out his back sneezing to Joel Zumaya hurting his wrist while playing Guitar Hero to Joba Chamberlain dislocating his ankle on a trampoline to a million other examples, we’ve seen just about every absurd injury over the...

What do Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz and Duke basketball player Grayson Allen have in common? Not much, other than looking like the exact same person.

Joey Crawford shares how refs nearly botched Game Six of 2013 NBA Finals

Game Six of the 2013 NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs has already achieved mythical status less than three years after it was played, and rightly so. It had everything: a blown lead with less than 30 seconds left in which one team looked like they were going to win the title only to lose it; a dramatic three-pointer; a hero; a goat; clutch shots; missed opportunities...

Bill Walton not a fan of Luke Walton coaching Knicks

The New York Knicks might be interested in hiring Luke Walton next year as the head coach. Famous father Bill Walton isn’t a fan of that move. Not one little bit. Speaking on ESPN’s “First Take,” the legendary baller said he’d tell Luke to “stay there” at Golden State as an assistant, rather than take the head coaching job with the Knicks. Really, this is just solid...
