Penn St.’s Allen Robinson: Kiper predicts where he’ll get drafted

Former Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson would have been better off staying in school, and ESPN NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. agrees with me. Imagine if Robinson had another year in State College working with Christian Hackenberg? They would easily be the Big Ten’s best pitch-and-catch combination this fall. However, you can’t leave money on the table so if the payday is...

VIDEO: Pacers, Paul George heckler overshadows NBA TV announcers

Paul George and the Indiana Pacers may have assured themselves a dubious place among the worst #1 seeds in NBA history. The Last time I saw a team this lifeless and apathetic playing at Conseco Fieldhouse…was only 6 weeks ago actually:  the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Big Ten Tourney.

Michigan’s Taylor Lewan: 2nd overall NFL Draft to the St. Louis Rams?

Former Michigan Offensive Tackle Taylor Lewan may end up as the #2 overall pick in this year’s draft. Which is shocking when you consider: 1.) how terrible the Michigan offensive line was, and how bad the offense was in general, 2.) the overall reputation of Big Ten football right now and 3.) Taylor Lewan’s peripheral connection to the Brendan Gibbons rape case. And the assault...

Talk about “jumping the gun!” Okay, obviously, these Liverpool FC 2013-14 Premier League Champions t-shirts were printed to be antagonistic, and to get attention. I doubt any Liverpool FC fans are laughing at this, especially since the shirts came out before the nil-2 defeat at home today to Chelsea.
