VIDEO: Texans Cheerleaders parody Arian Foster’s infamous interview

Arian Foster of the Houston Texans is very good at running the football. He’s also exceptional at wasting the time of the media. You know I love to rip on the pointlessness of most press conferences.

WR Stefon Diggs: a reason to care about Maryland football

As I’ve been saying for years, both Maryland football and Maryland basketball happen to be the ACC versions of the Illini, I have a soft spot for the Terps.
