Even Kansas State Players are impressed with the Oregon Duck’s Fiesta Bowl helmet

The Oregon Ducks have already worn this helmet, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive to this Kansas State player; Wildcats’ DB Carl Miles Jr’s facial expression is utterly priceless. Hopefully the Ducks fast-paced offense doesn’t impress or shock the Wildcats defense as much as this helmet.Photo 1 via: Imgur

Denver Broncos KR Trindon Holliday goes 16-0

This is just as rare as a team going undefeated.  Broncos kick returner Trindon Holliday started the year with the Houston Texans, and after their 5-0 start, he was cut.  Holliday was then picked up by the Denver Broncos, and the Broncos have won 11 straight.  Holliday currently stands at 16-0 on the year, and will look to add to that win total in the playoffs.  No NFL team has...

Fan runs across the field during Alamo Bowl and escapes

It’s not often that you see a fan run on the field and escape, but that’s exactly what this man was able to accomplish.  I was actually very impressed with the fact that no one at any point tried to stop him, and he looked just as shocked as anyone that no one was chasing him.  Where was the security during this incident?He even had enough time to strike a Heisman pose in the...

Washington Redskins DB gets leveled on Dallas Cowboys punt return

Washington Redskins DB Domonique Johnson was absolutely leveled by Dallas Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber on this play.  It looked clean at first, but when it is slowed down, you can see that there is some helmet-to-helmet contact.  It was good to see Johnson get up right away, and hopefully he won’t experience any lasting effects from this crushing blow.GIF via: @cjzero

Minnesota F Nick Bjugstad scores awesome goal against Boston College

Minnesota Golden Gophers forward Nick Bjugstad scored this awesome goal against Boston College on Sunday Night.  He’s got a great set of hands, and did a great job using his body to shield the puck.  Bjugstad was drafted 19th overall by the Florida Panthers, and based on his development, he looks like he could have a bright future in the NHL.  This year he has 15 points through...

Nelson hides challenge flag from refs

This was an utterly bizarre series of events.  Packers WR James Jones stretched out to score, and when he went to the turf, the ball came out.  The referees ruled it to be a fumble that was recovered by the Vikings.This play that was a turnover would automatically be reviewed by the officials, but Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy threw his challenge flag anyways; proving Jim Schwartz...

Mike Ratchuk scores amazing shootout goal in Slovenian Hockey League

Mike Ratchuk took a page out of Pavel Datsyuk’s book on this one, my goodness. Ratchuk was a 2nd round pick by the Philadelphia Flyers out of Michigan State.  He’s played in the AHL, ECHL and CHL, but has yet to appear in the NHL.  Now he currently plays for HDD Olimpija Ljubljana in Slovenia and this has to be a Sportscenter Top 10 play for sure.H/T: Puck Daddy Blog

ALL-OUT BRAWL

Massive minor league hockey fight

This is one of the rarest things you will ever see in hockey, a brawl that enters the benches, and is completely the referees fault.It was a good fight between SPHL’s Huntsville Havoc and Mississippi Surge, but dangerous for all players involved. I’m sure there will be some suspensions coming, and the penalty summary is absolutely unreal. These type of hockey brawls aren’t...

Jacksonville Jaguars accidentally left playbooks on players iPads last year when they went to other teams

I’m not sure how this took so long to get out in the open but it is absolutely hysterical.The Jags are a mess. They put their playbooks on some players iPads and then forgot to wipe them before player went to another team.— Plato Lombardi (@NFLosophy) December 23, 2012Because the Jags didn’t remotely delete the playbooks off of iPads, other teams had access to it when the player...

Alex Rodriguez gives himself new nickname: ‘Captain Rodriguez’

I wonder why Alex Rodriguez deleted this photo from his facebook page with the description: “Captain Rodriguez.” A-Rod, who is at the wheel of the boat with Torrie Wilson, is spending his holiday creating good memories which he didn’t create for us in the playoffs.[Deadspin]

49ers linebacker rips Seahawks fan’s sign

I’m not really sure what the Seahawks fan thought Bowman was going to do to the sign when he handed it to him, but he couldn’t have been totally shocked that Bowman ripped it.  I will say this, Bowman did just as bad of a job ripping that sign as the 49ers did playing defense on Sunday night.  He’s a huge guy and he could only rip off a little corner?  If you’re going...

Referee gets caught in Baylor Head Coach’s Gatorade Bath; towels himself off during timeout

After Baylor was done absolutely curb-stomping UCLA in the Holiday Bowl and they were content running the ball until the clock was almost out, they did the traditional thing and gave their coach a gatorade bath.  Unfortunately for this referee, no one accounted for the innocent bystanders.  I guess this is what you get when you stand close to the winning Head Coach at the end of...

Northern Illinois unveils new jerseys for the Orange Bowl

This is probably the least surprising team to unveil a special jersey this bowl season.  Northern Illinois going to their first BCS bowl game ever?  This one was pretty much a gimme.Honestly, I think these look great.  The dark red facemask looks outstanding, and so do the red pants.  Not to mention the numbers on the uniforms look crisp.  This is the way that special jerseys...

The Military Bowl is the most recent brutally attended Bowl Game

This has just gotten terrible.  Hardly anyone is showing up at these games, and a lot of schools are losing money by going to bowl games, because they are forced to purchase certain amounts of tickets and most do not get sold.  It’s really sad that the bowl games have come to this, but these games this year are living proof that there are too many bowl games.Announced crowd at...
