Cards top Packers in wild one

The NFL delivered another wild playoff game last night, as the Cardinals salvaged an overtime win after blowing it in regulation. I’m a huge fan of Bruce Arians as a had coach, but some of his aggressive calls on offense and defense late in the game almost blew up in his face. On their past possession in regulation, the Cards had an opportunity to run out a good chunk of the remaining...

Brian Hoyer lays an egg

I don’t think Brian Hoyer plans on posing for any Instagram photos like this one any time soon. This pic from Brandon Weeden was used by some to troll Browns fans as the two former Browns quarterbacks were heading to the playoffs while Johnny Manziel was going through another mini-scandal. But Hoyer was a disaster yesterday with four picks and five turnovers. The media was not...

Bengals are laughingstock of the NFL

It was a wild finish last night in Cincinnati, and some of the game actually included great football plays. But the Bengals suffered an epic meltdown with the antics of Vontaze Burfict and Adam “Pacman” Jones at the end of the game. This was after Jeremy Hill fumbled the football after an impressive strip by Ryan Shazier late in the game after it appeared the Bengals had sealed...

Urban Meyer – 1; Jim Harbaugh – 0

There was plenty of hype leading up to this game, and frankly it was justified. While Michigan has been a miserable mess against Ohio State since Jim Tressel arrived at the beginning of this millennium, things were poised to become more interesting with the arrival of Jim Harbaugh. Ohio State is the reigning national champ, and Urban Meyer is now the king of the hill in Columbus...

Miami and Duke provide another crazy finish

It’s been a pretty crazy year in college football. This play is right up there as one of the craziest, though the Michigan fiasco versus Michigan State still take still takes the cake and was far more important in the playoff picture. Still, this one will be shown for a long time, and the officials have a lot of explaining to do. On one of the backward passes there was a knee...

The humiliation of Bret Bielema

That was hilarious! Pretty much everyone agreed that Bret Bielema came across as a bumbling fool when he tried to rip Ohio State’s schedule and then proceeded to have his over-hyped Razorbacks crap the bed against Toledo. Bielema is a blowhard and also an overrated coach. He hopped aboard the Wisconsin train and basically just kept the same formula. He had some success while Michigan...

Rutgers decision haunts Big Ten

Pat Forde does his usually excellent job summarizing the Rutgers dumpster fire and the mess this has created for Jim Delany and the Big Ten. But he also throws in an interesting nugget that explains some of the motivation behind targeting Rutgers in the first place. Big Ten dictator Jim Delany IS FROM NEW JERSEY, and his obsession with getting the Big Ten exposure in the New York...

Baylor less than impressive with start to cupcake schedule

By now most college football fans are familiar with Baylor’s embarrassing nonconference schedule. This year the chest-thumping Bears get the season started with SMU, Lamar and Rice. The plan of course is to run up some impressive (though meaningless) stats playing defenses that resemble an intramural touch football game, and naturally Baylor chalked up over 50 points against defensive...

Was TCU exposed against Minnesota?

It’s easy to overreact when watching college football. We’re dealing with college kids and from week to week it’s impossible to come to definitive conclusions about a team based on just one game. That said, TCU did not look like a powerhouse last night against Minnesota. Frankly, TCU didn’t really beat Minnesota; the Gophers beat themselves with several sloppy turnovers...

Judge rules in favor of Tom Brady; smacks down NFL and Roger Goodell

The Deflategate mess has blown up in the face of Roger Goodell and the NFL. They took a misdemeanor infraction by Tom Brady and turned it into a Watergate-level scandal. Goodell’s foolishness may not hurt the NFL in today’s reality TV world where any exposure seems to be good exposure, but the NFL was coming off one of the most exciting playoffs and Super Bowl in years, and...

Things keep deteriorating for Robert Griffin III in Washington. He was hurt again against the Lions, and now the debate begins as everyone tries to assign blame.
