Ga Tech-Georgia brings national chops this season

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) There's no need for any extra motivation when Georgia faces Georgia Tech. These teams just don't like each other. ''It's a game you think about all year long,'' Georgia coach Mark Richt said Tuesday. Yet, in a change from previous meetings, there's a lot more on the line than merely state bragging rights. Both teams are having seasons to remember, transforming what...

Someone got a huge tattoo of The Rock's face on their leg

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a popular man. This was proven again on Tuesday when the actor/WWE Hall of Famer shared a photo of a huge tattoo that a fan had gotten of The Rock's face. We're not sure why you'd go through all this work and skip on the People's Eyebrow, but at least The Rock had nothing but praise for the ink.

Auburn-Alabama Preview

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Maybe Alabama and Auburn had something else on their minds entering the Iron Bowl warmup acts, like each other.

How close is Jay Gruden to benching Robert Griffin III?

Gruden met with reporters on Monday and was asked about the odds of a QB change. "There's a chance at a lot of positions, yes,...

Kentucky-Louisville Preview

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky began this month one game from becoming bowl eligible for the first time since 2010 and now the Wildcats are trying to avoid a fourth consecutive losing season.

Police investigating video of wakeboarder being pulled by Ferrari

The police are investigating a video of 19-year old Jorge Gill wakeboarding while being pulled by a Ferrari F50. No, not because the idea in itself is utterly insane (but awesome), but because of the “excessive speed and the manner in which the car was driven,” said a spokesman for Lincolnshire Police in a report by the Daily Mail.

But Morris' offense has scored just 13, 17 and 17 points in the...

Grizzlies-Lakers Preview

Marc Gasol didn't even hit double digits in points when Memphis saw the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this month, but the fulcrum of the Grizzlies' offense kept the ball moving and got his teammates involved.

Furman-Duke Preview

The consistent play of freshmen Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow has helped propel Duke to a strong start.
