Brady Quinn didn’t have the greatest NFL career, but his punditry career seems to be off to a good start. Yes, he’s displaying a bit of Notre Dame homerism with his college football playoff picks, but it’s certainly nothing like the delusional dreck we got use to hearing from Lou Holtz on ESPN’s College Game night Final. Brady Quinn discussed the high hopes surrounding...

Chiefs legend Tony Gonzalez likes Raiders prospects, logo, colors

  With the N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton” owning the summer box office this month, it’s yet another reminder of how ’90s nostalgia is “the thing” right now. It takes us back to when silver and black were the colors to wear. “I’m from L.A. so I grew up a hard core Raider fan, it’s that whole bad boy image, they have the best uniforms in the league,” said...

VIDEO: Van Gaal SNAPS at reporter over De Gea question, ends media session

Watching Manchester United surrender a 1-0 lead and lose today, you just knew that Louis van Gaal was going to be even more surly and condescending than usual in his post game media opportunities. It also helps that a reporter, who is just doing the job he’s supposed to do, happened to ask him about the most sensitive United topic of all, the David de Gea transfer saga. The...

Man United send Chicharito to Bayer Leverkusen for £12m

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez wanted first team football. That’s what he kept saying every time Chicharito transfer rumors popped up.

What Bill Cubit brings (and doesn’t bring) to Illini table

As former Illini and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defensive Tackle Akeem Spence Tweeted yesterday in the wake of Tim Beckman‘s dismissal- “Illinois just got better.” Bill Cubit looks, sounds and acts like he knows what he’s doing.

Illini football: seven recent AWFUL coordinators

Since John Mackovic left Illini football behind for Texas in 1991 the program has had four coaches; all of which went under .500 during their time in Champaign. They (Lou Tepper, Ron Turner, Ron Zook and Tim Beckman) combined to lose 53 more games than they won.

VIDEO: Louis van Gaal post Swansea loss interview

Louis Van Gaal: “When you see the game I thought we were the dominant team. The opponent changed their shape after 1-0 and we couldn’t cope with that. That’s not good because in only 5 minutes, the dominant role we had, we lost in that time and that was a pity as I thought we controlled the game.” Here’s the You Tube video of his interview following the 2-1 loss at Swansea...

Wayne Rooney ripped apart on Twitter today

Manchester United got a hat trick out of Wayne Rooney on Wednesday, but that performance seems like ancient history now given today’s disaster. In the previous 2014-15 Premier League matches, Rooney didn’t really get a lot of chances. Today he had three, and he wasn’t able to convert any of them. He’s looked hesitant, and on his final chance, should have at least been able...
