Fun times at USC these days. Here is what RB Anthony Brown had to say on his Instagram page.
Brown — a redshirt senior — just made the announcement on Instagram … where he said, “Sark treated me like a slave in his Office…Can’t play for a racist MAN!!!!! #Fighton.”
He also added an image that says, “Couldn’t play for a racist man.”
Curious to what actually was...

To clarify, I don’t know if Adrian Peterson is lying, it is my opinion he is lying in the statement below.
“This was a casual conversation between NFL colleagues in which I never indicated I wanted to leave the Vikings. I have always said I understand the NFL is a business but that I would love to retire as a Viking.”
If you want to retire as a Viking why are you telling Jerry...
Ever since the launch of Wrestlemania thirty years ago, WWE has taken every opportunity it has had to bring celebrities into their promotion. From Mr. T & Cyndi Lauper to Shaquille O’Neal to Floyd Mayweather, WWE has not been shy about bringing in world-famous athletes and celebrities as a part of their programming. According to the Wrestling Observer (subscription required...
We made it. We survived the long offseason without college football. The sport that we know and love returns tonight in full force as South Carolina and Texas A&M on the freshly launched SEC Network. There is no more Johnny Football running around for the Aggies and no more Clowney scaring the life out of QBs for South Carolina but this one will still be fun.
An intersting subplot...
Jerry why didn’t you pull the trigger and make us all so happy? I can never forgive you, but I understand.
Here is what Jerry had to say to ESPN.
Among the organization’s football minds, only Jerry Jones wanted Manziel. Jones’ son Stephen, the Cowboys’ executive vice president in charge of player personnel, had lobbied hard against choosing Manziel — “I’m still so...

Glass half full the last two kids are by the same woman track and field star Marshevet Hooker, so Willis has settled down a bit.
Only needs one more and he can start a football team of his own.
This is a bit petty.
It has to be a pretty old pic, because the tattoo Josh Gordon has in the photo is different than the one he had fully completely last year.
Jenna has been linked to other athletes in the past (James Harden, Jordan Hill and others), so this isn’t surprising. Lesson to be learned here is never turn your back when you are with an escort.

Either ESPN has done a nice job with these College Football Playoff ads or we all just really want the season to get started. I will go with a combination of both but this is a good ad.
Check out the latest ad titled “In Common” which features fans from many schools and even some famous faces. “Why not us?”
Per Chris Mortensen, Peyton Manning has been fined $8,200 by the league office for taunting Texans’ DJ Swearinger after throwing a touchdown pass.

This is definitely a headline we don’t see to often...
Derek Carr will start Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, and will have a chance to prove to the Raiders coaching staff and Raiders fans that he is worth of being their starting QB. Carr is afforded this opportunity because the assumed starter Matt Schaub is sitting out Thursday night’s game with elbow-soreness.

Only Johnny Manziel can get commercials as a backup quarterback.
Whenever Manziel gets a chance to play in a meaningful game, maybe he’ll throw Snickers in the crowd after a touchdown, ala Marshawn Lynch with Skittles.
They asked Derrick Rose about his injuries since he has taken a few days off and missed a game because of knee soreness during his time with Team USA and here is what he had to say via SI.

You remember Sam Gordon right?
Viral Youtube videos made her an overnight sensationto the point the NFL basically took her under their wing and even invited her to Super Bowl. She was 9-years-old back then, now she is 11 and still breaking ankles.
Looking like a young Barry Sanders.
So, in the end this was much ado about nothing.
