Miami Heat begin life without front-runner fanboy support

With Lebron James gone, the Miami Heat are no longer ESPN’s overwhelmingly favorite team. Now Bristol will root for and over-saturate us with the Cleveland Cavaliers. So that means all those front-runner d-bag frat boy idiots who rooted for the Heat (but don’t actually like sports to begin with) will have to find a new team. That’s their problem, and a topic we’ll ignore...

Rayvonte Rice talks about Ray Rice (exclusive)

Up until mid January, Rayvonte Rice was the leading scorer in the Big Ten last season. However, the season went downhill for both him and his Illinois Fighting Illini at Northwestern. An adductor strain slowed Rice down for awhile, and the Illini offense had major issues. However, Rayvonte Rice and the Illini finished strong. Had it not been for that loss at NU, and probably the...

Brooklyn Nets: 99 problems and…….

If you’re a Brooklyn Nets fans I feel bad for ya son, cuz the Brooklyn Nets can 99 problems and the ownership is one. Not that there’s anything specifically wrong with Jay-Z’s leadership role in the franchise, it’s just that the team is already being blown apart.

Tom Izzo hilariously lists out MSU’s bizarre, freakish injuries

Tom Izzo has seen some of his Michigan State Spartans underachieve, overachieve and everything in between. Often in the same season. One of the few reasons he’s earned the nickname “Mr. March” is because his teams often struggle in midseason and/or start slowly. Last year’s Spartans had an 18-1 start to the season, the best in school history. They looked like a national champion...

FSU Coach Jimbo Fisher: most detestable man in college football

While Florida State Jameis Winston seems to be the main target in the anti-FSU backlash, Florida State Head Coach Jimbo Fisher is much more deserving. Winston may or may not be ignorant as to what he truly is and what he truly is not. Jameis seems to think he can do whatever he want without fear of consequence. He thinks he’s above the law due to either ignorance, arrogance, immaturity...

But other than being married to a man named Lane Kiffin who is famous for “failing upward,” she really hasn’t done anything. Layla...

L.A. Lakers have poor supporting cast for Kobe this season

The L.A. Lakers will likely struggle through another long season. They are built around one very big, very expensive piece. And that piece is aging and coming off dealing with injury issues.
