PHOTO: Brady Hoke has interesting nicknames for Michigan opponents

Brady Hoke has an interesting take on his 2014 Michigan Wolverines schedule.

2014 FULL Seven Round NFL Mock Draft 4-21-14

Here is our seven round NFL mock draft. It’s not written by me, it’s authored by a website reader who wishes to remain anonymous. I will tell you he puts a whole lot of work into it. And of course because a seven round NFL mock draft is a ton of work. And this version is even improved and augmented, as there’s even a little bit of commentary sometimes. As always, here’s...

Blake Sims and Jake Coker begin battle to succeed AJ McCarron at Alabama

“With Blake Sims, there are probably some things that he can do as a quarterback that we really don’t feature in this game,” Alabama Coach Nick Saban said after the A-Day spring scrimmage. “For him to be an effective player at his position, in fairness to him, it’s probably good for us to do things like that. We really don’t feature our skill guys very much.” So don’t...

D.J. Augustin one of many reasons for Chicago Bulls playoff optimism

D.J. Augustin has emerged as the Chicago Bulls best late game scorer. He’ll be the key player for the #4 seed Bulls as they host the #5 seed Wizards to open the series tonight. The one game the Wizards lost during the season, Nene missed. But now he’s back. So the front-court match-up with Gortat and Nene against Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer will be intriguing, and I think overall...

Lane Kiffin struggled; Layla Kiffin should have called Crimson Tide A-Day

When Nebraska Cornhuskers Coach Bo Pelini let the NU cheerleaders call plays during the spring “game,” he had the right idea. The cheerleaders actually directed a scoring drive on their play calls in Lincoln; and that’s about how seriously we should treat spring college football. Layla Kiffin should have done some play-calling during the Alabama Crimson Tide A-Day “game.”...

Jeff Van Gundy: Chicago is where back-up point guards go to get paid

Jeff Van Gundy raised a very salient point the other day. As Derrick Rose misses yet another NBA postseason, I guess he can take solace in the fact that he’s indirectly and inadvertently helped journeyman point guards find their way in this league. Because he’s injured so much, and misses all that time, there’s a tremendous opportunity for mediocre ones to get starter minutes...

Can Deron Williams ever return to being the Deron Williams he once was?

There was a time when Deron Williams was considered the best point guard in the NBA. And if not the best, then right up there in the discussion with Steve Nash and Chris Paul. When he teamed with Carlos Boozer to lead the Utah Jazz to the 2007 NBA Western Conference Finals in just his second professional season, it was thought that Salt Lake City had Karl Malone and John Stockton...

Tim Sherwood: Sandro “is not good enough” to play for me

When Tottenham Hotspur went from AVB to Tim Sherwood, they went from slow and plodding to fast and flamboyant. And in Tim Sherwood they also got themselves a bit of a loose cannon; someone who makes press conferences interesting. That’s a welcome development as almost all pressers are extremely dull and boring. Sherwood on the other hand, colorfully speaks his mind. And now since...

Indiana Pacers the #1 seed, but are they the favorites?

You might want to root for the Indiana Pacers this season, if only to see some variety from last year. Especially if you’re an “anyone but the Miami Heat” person. Like the story of last fall: Johnny Manziel vs. the NCAA vs. the creepy autograph seekers, there’s no one to root for in a Heat-San Antonio Spurs rematch. America doesn’t need to see that again.
