Stan Van Gundy: John wall isn’t good enough for Wizards to build around

One of the reasons the Washington Wizards are off to such a poor start again this season has been the absence of John Wall. A team isn’t going to win many games without its best player, and Washington has won only four of its 29 with Wall having been sidelined with a knee injury for the entire season. To say that the Wizards are missing the former Kentucky star would be an epic...

Jonathan Vilma rips anonymous Saints player for calling out Steve Spagnuolo: ‘We’re not the Jets’

The New Orleans Saints had one of the worst defenses in the NFL this season, which of course reflects poorly on defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. It was a hectic year in New Orleans between the bounty scandal and the suspension of head coach Sean Payton, so it’s tough to judge anyone based on the past 10 months. At least one Saints player feels as though Spagnuolo is to blame...

Florida State’s Vince Williams on Northern Illinois QB Jordan Lynch: ‘He’s terrible’

Outside of the state of Illinois and the BCS committee, there were very few people in the country who felt as though Northern Illinois deserved a spot in the Orange Bowl against Florida State. The Huskies, of course, felt as though they earned the opportunity. In fact, Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch called out the Seminoles’ defense earlier in the week, saying that...

Timberwolves G Lazar Hayward says he can see spirits but can't talk to them yet

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Lazar Hayward says he has a very rare ability. We know that the former Marquette star has been blessed with a significant amount of talent, but this particular skill has nothing to do with basketball. Like the kid from the movie “The Sixth Sense,” Hayward says he is capable of seeing dead people. The former first-round pick says he has been able to...

The Iowa State women’s basketball team came away with a comfortable 86-47 win over Alabama State on Sunday, but center Anna Prins was left celebrating more than just a blowout victory.

Urban Meyer: Tim Tebow needs to be with a team whose system lets him play

Following a season in which he was a complete non-factor with the New York Jets, it’s fair to wonder if Tim Tebow will ever again be the type of viable starting quarterback that he was with the Denver Broncos a year ago. This may come as a shock, but Urban Meyer still feels as though Tebow can help an NFL team win games and become a contender. “We watched RG3 at the Washington...

Lions player: Team was undisciplined, Jim Schwartz lost control

The Detroit Lions looked like the Lions of old this past season, and that is not a good thing.

A lot of people are to blame for the disappointing campaign, but it starts with head coach Jim Schwartz. According to one anonymous Lions players, a lack of discipline was...

Kyle Shanahan emphatically predicted a Redskins’ NFC East title a year ago

The Washington Redskins finished in last place in the NFC East last season. While the addition of Robert Griffin III brought plenty of excitement to the nation’s capital, few experts believed the Redskins would win the NFC East crown in the rookie’s first year as the team’s starting quarterback. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan never cared what the so-called experts thought...

Steve Nash: Lakers are lacking chemistry

The Los Angeles Lakers have improved since their horrendous start to the month of December, but they still do not look like the championship contender most experts expected them to be before the season began. Steve Nash has averaged almost 10 assists per game and his return from injury has helped, but L.A. has still played inconsistently both on offense and defense. The Lakers lost...

Northwestern destroyed a stuffed monkey after finally winning a bowl game

Northwestern defeated Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl on Tuesday to win its first bowl game since 1949. For those of you who struggle with math, that’s a 64-year drought.

David Shaw cuts short Heather Cox interview (Video)

Stanford head coach David Shaw was understandably thrilled when his team defeated Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl on Sunday, but he didn’t need to take it out on ESPN reporter Heather Cox. By that, I mean Shaw could have simply taken a few minutes for an interview. Typically the network that hosted the game is given that luxury, but Shaw wanted nothing to do with it. As you can see...

Robert Woods seems bitter that Lane Kiffin didn’t get him the ball enough

USC junior wide receiver Robert Woods announced after Monday’s Sun Bowl that he would be foregoing his senior season to enter the NFL draft. The announcement came as no surprise for a few reasons. One, Woods had three big seasons for USC and had little left to accomplish in college. Two, he became a secondary option on the offense behind sophomore Marqise Lee, and he probably didn’t...
