Jason and Devin McCourty want you to help tackle Sickle Cell

It’s no secret that the last few weeks have been tough for the NFL. But while everyone continually gets caught in the negativity surrounding the league, it’s also important to remember that a lot of its players and coaches are not only doing good things, but changing lives as well. Two of those players are Jason and Devin McCourty, who are using their platform as NFL stars,...

Week 3 Recap: Ole Miss + Kentucky are underrated, Georgia is overrated, and the Big Ten is….

It always happens: We say it’s going to be a “down week” then we get 12 hours of football insanity. That’s exactly what happened Saturday. Here are 10 thoughts from a wild Week 3. Georgia just isn’t that good: I thought Steve Spurrier summed up this game better than I ever could, during his postgame interview with CBS sideline reporter Allie LaForce, when he said: “I...

Oregon 46, Michigan State 27: Ducks the opposite of everything we thought they were

Its confession time: I couldn’t have been more wrong about the Oregon Ducks.

And if you’ll allow me to pull my foot out of my mouth, I’d love to explain myself. You see, all week- all off-season actually- I believed a self-created...

Firing Will Muschamp Would Be The Worst Move Florida Could Make

(Follow Aaron on Twitter @Aaron_Torres) Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 48 hours (or even worse, in a world without sports television) you’ve probably heard that it was a pretty bad weekend to be a Florida Gator. It was even worse to be their head coach, Will Muschamp. The Gators lost on Saturday, but unlike so many other teams across the country, it wasn’t...

It Might Not Happen, But Les Miles to Texas Does Make Sense

(Photo Courtesy: USA Today) So by now, most of you probably know that I’m no longer a full-time sports writer (I instead write for a sports TV show). However, as they say “A leopard can’t change its spots” and quite often, I dip back into my past, and stay in touch with several people that I came to be friends with in the business. Mostly it’s because I genuinely like...

Movie Review: Talking Miami football with the independent film ‘The U: Reloaded’

A new movie about the Miami Hurricanes is out When you ask college football fans who the greatest team in the history of the sport is, the answer almost universally is, ‘The 2001 Miami Hurricanes.’ (Editor’s disclaimer: I know I believe that. I am writing a long-form feature on the team for FoxSports.com which will run later this month) So what if I told you a new documentary...

Emmanuel Mudiay is a lot of things, but don’t call him a pioneer

By now, you’ve probably heard quite a bit about Emmanuel Mudiay. You probably know that it was a little over a week ago, that the McDonald’s All-American and SMU signee decided to take his talents overseas, rather than bring them to a college campus near you. You also know that depending on who you ask, that decision was either based on financial hardship (Mudiay’s story),...

Wichita State-Kentucky had impossible expectations…and surpassed them

Before we get to the obvious with Wichita State-Kentucky, before we break down one of the single most compelling tournament games of my lifetime, a match-up which required a cigarette, hot shower and trip to the cardiologist when it was all said and done, let’s first start with maybe the most underrated aspect of it all. That is this: In a game which began with near impossible...
