LATEST STORIES FROM THE SCORES REPORT

Academic fraud at North Carolina

The debacle in North Carolina poses a real problem for the NCAA. The North Carolina basketball program is one of the premier brands in college basketball, but the NCAA makes billions with the NCAA Tournament. The NCAA slammed Ohio State and USC over tattoos and improper benefits, but here we have a situation where football players, basketball players and other athletes were funneled...

Madison Bumgarner quiets Royals

The commentary above brings up a good point – the Giants probably needed this game more with Madison Bumgarner on the mound. They needed their ace to step up and he did. He also stopped the ridiculous post-season winning streak by the Royals. Now we’ll see how the Royals react. They’ve been resilient during games, and now they have to bounce back from a home loss and avoid...

Florida State hangs on against Notre Dame

The game lived up to the hype. Notre Dame gave Florida State everything they could handle last night in Tallahassee, with the winning touchdown being taken off the board on what turned out to be the correct call. Both Jameis Winston and Everett Golson were spectacular, and it seemed like whoever had the ball last would win. As it turned out, Notre Dame thought they had it but the...

Bizarre Percy Harvin trade

The NFL world was pretty shocked yesterday with the news that Seattle traded Percy Harvin to the Jets. It started to make more sense, at least from Seattle’s point of view, when reports started to surface that Harvin was a cancer in the clubhouse. In fact, the move seems brilliant all of a sudden from their point of view. Pete Carroll has established himself as one of the best...

Is Russell Wilson an elite quarterback?

This question is being debated quite a bit since Russell Wilson dazzled recently in prime time against the Redskins. Frankly, Wilson is capable of making some incredible plays, and he’s definitely one of the best improvisers in football. I was never high on Wilson and he’s made me and other critics eat my words. That said, he’s in the perfect situation with a great defense...

Fran Tarkenton scolds AJ McCarron

This is pretty hilarious. AJ McCarron has a pretty inflated view of himself, and that came across when he criticized the current Alabama team by saying it didn’t have the leadership the team had last year (that would be himself, AJ McCarron). He also made some comments about Nick Saban “handcuffing” the offense. The great Fran Tarkenton reacted with a classic rant about McCarron...

Fox investigation shows FSU obstructed Jameis Winston investigation

Fox released stunning results of its investigation into how Florida State “handled” the Jameis Winston investigation when he faced rape allegations. In some ways this shouldn’t be stunning at all – the campus police and athletic department basically did everything possible to undermine the investigation and keep Winston on the field. They stacked the deck in favor of the...

Is Jay Cutler the next Jeff George?

Brian Billick made an interesting comparison today, wondering if Jay Cutler is the next Jeff George. Naturally, bears fans should be terrified by the prospect, though many of them were dumbfounded when the Bears gave him a monster contract extension. The comparison may be appropriate in that both men have great arms along with a gunslinger mentality when playing the position. But...

The video offers a humorous look at the Aflac Duck and highlights that, while the Aflac Duck may not be good at football, he pays claims fast. Are you the ultimate college football fan? If so, Aflac has...

Kirk Cousins isn’t Superman

Can we stop with all the talk about Kirk Cousins being better than RGIII? Everyone can have a bad day, but tonight Cousins had one for the ages. I think he’s on four interceptions now. I’ve lost count. Of course, his offensive line blows, so his fans can offer up some excuses. But Cousins has been ordinary when teams have had a week to prepare and game plan for him. He has some...

Certain things are obvious #GoodCombos, like the hacker and that iCloud he hacked to gift the world with nude pics of Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande and Bar Rafaeli, aka ”The Fappening.” A #BadCombo could potentially be 95 degree heat and endless asphalt. But COMBOS came up with a solution. COMBOS Curiosities are here to test every combination available. They posses an admitted...

Roger Goodell channels Sergeant Schultz

Roger Goodell claims he didn’t see the Ray Rice video where he punches and knocks out his fiancee Janay Palmer (now Janay Rice). I guess I believe him, as there’s no way anyone would suspend that ******* for only two games after seeing this video. What’s clear is that Goodell didn’t want to see it. Goodell employed the Sergeant Schultz strategy of closing his eyes to an...

Seattle dominates Green Bay

The first game of the 2014 season is coming to an end, and it still looks like the 2013 season. Seattle still tackles well, and the Packers still suck at tackling. And while Aaron Rodgers is still very good at playing quarterback, he can’t beat the Seahawks by himself. I know the Packers won a Super Bowl with Dom Capers running the defense, but that unit has been a disaster ever...

Kevin Love trade made official

The worst-kept secret in the NBA has now been made official as Kevin Love will be joining Lebron James and Kyrie Irving in Cleveland to form a new big-three. The Cavs had to part with uber-prospect Andrew Wiggins, so the price was steep. Still, the Cavs now have to be the favorites to come out of the East to the NBA Finals. And while many currently think a team coming out of the...

Jadeveon Clowney unveils beast mode

Look who’s ready to wreak havoc on NFL offenses. Jadeveon Clowney is a beast and these two plays give a glimpse of the damage he can do. Pairing him up with JJ Watt gives the Texans some serious weapons on defense. Now, if they can just get a real quarterback . . .

Compensation will include Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a protected 2015 first-round draft pick. Minnesota will not be able to unload the J.J. Barea, Luc Mbah a Moute or Alexey Shved contracts in the deal....

Scores Report Interview with Carolina Panthers Luke Kuechly

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly is the kind of impact player that NFL teams envision when they select a player in the top ten of the NFL Draft. Selected ninth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, he was named Defensive Rookie of the Year that season and NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2013. What can he do for an encore in year three?

Bengals sign Andy Dalton

If you look at the headlines regarding Andy Dalton’s new contract, it seems like he broke the bank getting $115 million over 6 years. But we’ve learned that the devil is in the details when it comes to NFL contracts, and this breakdown from ProFootballTalk explains how this contract really sets the bar for second-tier quarterbacks. The guaranteed money really isn’t that high...

The Ray Rice mess

It’s hard to find a dissenting opinion about this, unless of course you’re a Ravens fans. Despite his apology and trying to do things right since the incident, there’s little Ray Rice can do to erase the image of him dragging his unconscious girlfriend out of that elevator. And that’s a problem for Roger Goodell, who made one of the most criticized decisions in recent memory...

Redemption for Lebron James

Lebron James did the right thing – he’s coming home. I say “coming home” because I’m writing this from the Cleveland area and was pleasantly surprised to see Lebron right the wrong of “The Decision” in such a classy way with “The Letter.” Everyone can appreciate the sentiment of wanting to come home, but the folks in Northeast Ohio really needed to hear this from...

Epic rant from owner of California Chrome

Like many, I got to see this epic rant live, and it’s amazing what people say when they’re pissed off. Never mind that this has been going on for years, as some horses show up in the Belmont Stakes to thwart a Triple Crown. That’s why it’s so damn hard. The debates on Twitter were priceless and also informative, as those who understood horse racing explained why Steve Coburn’s...
