Alabama Bans "Dixieland Delight" to Protect Your Virgin Ears

Got a cool stadium tradition that ties your state, school and biggest rivalry together? NOT ANYMORE YOU DON'T. I'd love to say this is surprising, but welcome to America in 2014. If one person is offended WE ALL HAVE TO BE OFFENDED, so let's gear all of our entertainment to the lowest denominator.

Monday Medicine: UAB Blazers

R.I.P. UAB.Sure, your state government systematically destroyed your program to keep the Tide dominant and you just earned bowl eligibility for only the second time in history, but "you don't know what you don't know." I can't believe Watts made it out of there alive. That was a Timothy McVeigh level perp walk:

America's Game.

Army-Navy Week has always been special at the DC World Headquarters. It could be because of the fact that we love outdated offenses. It could be the innate desire to root for two teams full of underdogs that the rest of the FBS didn't want to recruit. It could be our shared experience as (retired) service academy football players. It could be the pageantry, It could be the history...

Did Wisconsin Throw the B1G Championship Game?

Ohio State's shellacking of Wisconsin last weekend (with a third string quarterback) was so shocking that it should have been unconstitutional, but was it bad enough to think the Badgers were in on it? THIS guy thinks so: Sure, that's probably the incoherent ramblings of a passionate fan who probably thinks the CIA knocked the World Trade Center down, but can we put it past Jim...

Monday Medicine: Art Briles

Art Briles didn't have to wait for Sunday's selection committee results to know that his back-to-back Big 12 Champions were about to be railroaded by their own conference, and he ended Saturday's win over Kansas State with a completely justified rant for the ages. Briles was furious, and publicly dressed down league commissioner Bob Bowlsby, after the Big 12 changed their "ONE TRUE...
