Auburn beat Alabama in the most incredible ending to a college football game in recent memory. After the heartbreaker, Alabama’s A.J. McCarron got a smooch from his Auburn-grad girlfriend Katherine Webb. Yup, not feeling bad for McCarron one bit.
After a review put one second back on the clock, Alabama decided to attempt a 57-yard field goal for the win. They missed the field goal and Auburn Tigers senior cornerback Chris Davis caught the field goal and then ran it back 109-yards to the house. This is one of the single greatest endings to a football game you will ever see. Naturally the crowd rushed the field. [SB...
With less than a minute to go in the game, the Auburn Tigers were driving to try and score a game-tying touchdown. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn drew up this beauty of a play, running a read-option pass play and Sammy Coates was wide-open. Nick Marshall hit Coates with the pass after both defenders ran to him and Coates basically walked in the end zone to tie the game at 28.
The clock was running out in the New York Rangers-Vancouver Canucks game when Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa started looking to unleash some frustration on someone. He found Brian Boyle as a dance partner and the two got into a pretty decent bout, but the ending was the best part. Bieksa took Boyle’s helmet and drop-kicked it as the referees separated them, doing nothing to...
Didn’t know a sewing machine was part of a certified athletic training tool kit but apparently it is.
Pinned deep in their own territory, the Alabama Crimson Tide decided to roll the dice. AJ McCarron threw this fantastic pass to Amari Cooper after a double-move and Cooper broke a tackle and took it 99-yards to the house. The touchdown gave Alabama a 28-21 lead in the 4th quarter over the Auburn Tigers.
Auburn Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall was spotted wearing a “STFU” wrist band during the Iron Bowl. It’s not clear whether he wears that all the time or if he is just wearing it for the Iron Bowl, either way it’s certainly an interesting fashion choice.
After getting ejected for his involvement in a fight, Ohio State offensive lineman Marcus Hall gave a double-bird gift to Michigan fans in the crowd. That’s a good way to make friends in Ann Arbor.
Michigan’s sophomore tight end Devin Funchess showed off his impressive athleticism during Saturday’s The Game. Funchess hurdles OSU CB Dorian Grant en route to a 20-yard gain. The hurdle eventually led to a touchdown for Michigan, giving them a 21-14 lead over No.3 Ohio State.
Things got very chippy during Saturday’s Ohio State-Michigan game in the second quarter on a kick return. One Michigan player was ejected, while two Ohio State players including Marcus Hall who flipped off the crowd while leaving the field. Related: Devin Funchess hurdles OSU defender
Detroit Red Wings forward Darren Helm has been on a tear since returning from injury and has now scored 7 goals in his last 13 games, two of which came against the New York Islanders on Friday. During the second period the Red Wings were shorthanded and Helm went after the puck while Islanders goalie Kevin Poulin tried to play it. Helm got to the puck first and poked it by Poulin...
Edmonton Oilers forward Ales Hemsky went crashing into the boards after a failed attempt to get by Nashville Predators defenseman Kevin Klein and lost his skate blade. Hilarity ensued when Hemsky tried to get up and skate with a missing skate blade, which is basically impossible to do. Hemsky is lucky the only thing that broke was his skate with how he went into the boards.
Last week, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio told ESPN sideline reporter Quint Kessenich to ask him a different question after Kessenich asked a question that Dantonio didn’t like. This week, Kessenich upset Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach Bo Pelini with a question about the two early interceptions that were thrown and Pelini had a hilarious response. Sideline reporters...
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin “accidentally” interfered with Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones while he was returning a kick. I’m not entirely sure how Tomlin got away with this and didn’t get a penalty, which would have given Jones a touchdown. Jones clearly had to adjust his route to the end zone because of Tomlin and got caught because of it. Tomlin knew...
Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban went to go play the puck behind the Montreal Canadiens net and apparently had a mental lapse as to where the net was. He clotheslined himself on the net and went down to the ice hard. He got up laughing and the ref found his collision with the net amusing as well. I’m sure his teammates won’t let him forget about this one for a...
Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic was forechecking the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night when he inexplicably leveled his teammate Jarome Iginla. It looks like he was going to hit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall but Kronwall turned his back so Lucic peeled off. When he did so, he didn’t see Iginla coming into the zone and the two collided. Neither was hurt, but it...
The Texas Tech Red Raiders opened up the playobook against the Texas Longhorns on Thanksgiving night, running a fake punt from their own 49-yard-line. Red Raiders punter Ryan Erxleben didn’t just pick up the first down, he went untouched for 51 yards on this perfectly executed play for a touchdown. Erxleben has some serious speed for a punter and the Red Raiders may want to...
Oakland Raiders runningback Rashad Jennings got shoved out of bounds at the end of a run and absolutely smoked a camera man. When CBS went to show the replay, the forgot to check the audio and you can audibly hear the camera man yelling “oh f**k.” I give credit to the camera man for being tough and getting up afterwards, I know there are a lot of people that would not have...
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams fumbled the opening kickoff and it was scooped by Oakland Raiders wide receiver Greg Jenkins and returned for a touchdown. The play was reviewed but there wasn’t enough evidence to overturn the call on the field. Jenkins was signed by the Raiders this week and is making the Raiders look pretty smart for doing so.
It’s safe to say that Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton regrets his “dirtbags” comment. The Lions defense tore apart the Packers offense and managed to sack Matt Flynn 7 times. Ndamukong Suh blew past two offensive lineman on this play to bring down Flynn for a safety, showing off the power and skill that has made Suh so highly touted.
Calvin Johnson had another solid game this week, going for 101 yards and a touchdown on 6 receptions. On this 20-yard touchdown, Johnson brushed off Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett, making him look like nothing more than a mosquito. The touchdown was crucial in getting the Lions off to a good start in the second half and started their 40-10 thrashing of the Packers.
The New York Islanders have revealed the uniforms that they will wear for their Stadium Series game against the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on January 29th. The logo is an altered version of their current one, but it still looks pretty cool. The striping on the uniform, with the white shoulders and special pant cover is an awesome look. I guess this means that the New...
Scoring a goal in your NCAA hockey debut isn’t an uncommon feat, albeit an impressive one. If you’re a goalie that scores a goal in your debut, well that’s just downright unheard of. Cornell Big Red freshman goalie Mitch Gilliam did exactly that, scoring a goal against Niagara in his NCAA hockey debut and I’d be willing to bet he’s the first to ever do that.
The Nashville Predators media department whipped up this beauty of a video after the Predators win over the Toronto Maple Leafs to celebrate their American players. They did a great job picking what represents America in the video, nothing says America like a Hummer.
Some “clever” Ohio State fans decided to take a shot at Michigan and Mark May by writing “Mich sucks Mark May off” in the snow before The Game. I guess spelling out Michigan in its entirety was too much for these guys.
