WIll the San Diego Chargers go OT or DT in the draft?

As the San Diego Chargers progress forward with an uncertain future, hopefully they make the right call and stay home.

Spike Albrecht now Michigan Wolverines’ Alpha Dog

It’s nearly impossible to see Michigan Guard Spike Albrecht (or hear his name) and not think of his completely-out-of-nowhere, insanely hot shooting stretch in the 2013 National Title game. And then also think of the next day when he made his Twitter pass at insanely hot swimsuit model Kate Upton. The Game of War pitchwoman, also a big Michigan fan, attended the game. For or better...

VIDEO: Chiefs TE Travis Kelce dances “The Carlton” at a rodeo

This past weekend Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Travis Kelce partook in a dance-off against the Professional Bull-Riding’s Fan of the Night.
