The Mike Ditka stance on Adrian Petersen child abuse is predictably Ditka

If Mike Ditka hadn’t already officially moved in to the Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Donald Trump category of right win loons, then today was his initiation. If Mike Ditka wasn’t already a member of the Screaming A. Smith and Skip Bayless category (routinely saying things that no sensible person believes, including themselves, just to get attention and ratings) then he arrived...

VIDEO: all four Man United goals in win over QPR

We were worried a #BeforeLVGWinsAtUnited hash tag was going to start circulating. That’s over now, as Man United are off the hook...

Notre Dame 30, Purdue 14: the Shamrock Series in Tweets

Purdue didn’t defeat Notre Dame, but at least they covered the spread. (Hence the Bart Simpson GIF above) The Boilermakers gave a noble effort in a match-up in which most observers felt they had zero chance. The Fighting Irish won by 16 in a game that was pretty close for three quarters and change. We learned a lot: -Everett Golson is invaluable to ND -Cam McDaniel is the best...

Louis van Gaal thinks Man United can still win title

Louis van Gaal isn’t wrong. It’s still very early in the Premier League season. The championship race is wide open; despite the terrible start for Manchester United. The Red Devils acquired just two points from their first three matches. That’s worse than it sounds though because United’s early fixtures were pretty weak. This was supposed the time to rack up victories and...

Chelsea FC Champions League TV schedule

Chelsea FC have gotten off to a superlative start in their Premier League fixtures. The Blues are in first place having knocked off previously unbeaten and surprising Swansea City. There’s a reason I picked Chelsea FC to win the league in the summer; many football pundits did as well. “The Special One” Jose Mourinho had about as effective a summer transfer window as possible...

Notre Dame football sets new game livestream record

The final Michigan vs Notre Dame football game was an ugly one. It was very lopsided and quite boring. However, it was still the most-streamed Notre Dame Football game of all time.

NY Jets should effectively rush Aaron Rodgers

This NY Jets defense contains arguably Rex Ryan’s best pass rush since he came to New York in 2009. Through the years, he’s been able to call defensive gems against the likes of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. He did so against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers back in 2010, but the offense faltered and the Jets were shutout 9-0. Rodgers went just 15 of 34 for 74 yards and...

VIDEO: Louis van Gaal shows comedic side at Man United Presser

Manchester United Manager Louis van Gaal is nicknamed “The Iron Tulip” due to his hard-liner style and Dutch heritage. He’s known for his stern leadership style, not a sense of humor.

VIDEO: Nets Deron Williams gives us something NICE to discuss

Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams made headlines this week for the right reasons. A wealthy star athlete doing good works? Imagine that.

James Wilson: future of Manchester United’s attack

There’s been a lot of talk about the youth at Old Trafford lately. From a forward stand point that could be 18 year old James Wilson. Yes, James Wilson was actually born in 1995, and he looks even younger than that.
