LATEST STORIES FROM THE VICTORY FORMATION

RIP Steve Sabol

I was consumed by work yesterday, so when I found out this morning that Steve Sabol passed, I was bit saddened. I know these days we take for granted the fact that we have 1000 TV channels to watch, 4000 angles to see a play during a sporting event, and another 20,000 ways to watch [...]

Brock Osweiler is the Broncos Hail Mary specialist

The Denver Broncos suffered a difficult loss on Monday Night, as their rally fell short. They dug themselves an early hole, thanks to Peyton Manning throwing 3 first quarter interceptions. It could have been worse, had the Falcons actually scored more than points off the extremely weak throws. It appears that the concern over Manning’s [...]

ESPN/SEC expected to launch network in 2014

Don’t think there is enough SEC football on the telly these days? (Lets face it, no SEC network will ever throw its hat on basketball season.) You’ll love this news then. Come 2014, we could be graced with a WHOLE ESPN PRODUCT featuring the SEC. When SEC signed their megadeal with ESPN back in 2008, [...]

Notre Dame and UConn may be played at Fenway Park

Fenway Park is looking to host a winning team, and are looking to Notre Dame to be the one. Granted, Notre Dame’s national success has been on the same level as it once was, there are reasons for hope in South Bend with their first 3-0 start in a decade. Besides that, Notre Dame is [...]

Tennesse Volunteers will not be praying to God

The times, they are a changing. No prayer in the Bible Belt, at least the part of it that crosses through Neyland Stadium in Knoxville. Now, I’d say this is why the Tennessee Volunteers never had a chance this past weekend against the Gators, but this all went down afterward. The Freedom From Religion Foundation [...]

Jermichael Finley’s agent not an Aaron Rodgers fan

Agents can make you a lot of money with their words, but they can also make you out to look like a spoiled, ungrateful individual in the process. Green Bay Packers tight end, Jermichael Finley, has an agent that is doing the latter. Blake Baratz, the agent who is doing a fine job of undermining [...]

Tebow hasn’t ruled out running for office

The GOP would like to reconsider the nomination for the office of Presidency. New York Jets QB Tim Tebow was asked about his future, specifically politics, and the lightning rod upman had a very interesting response. “I haven’t ruled it out. Whatever avenue I feel like I can make a difference in, I’d love to [...]

John L. Smith has a message for the media

John L. Smith is the gift that keeps on giving, unless you are a fan of the University of Arkansas football team. As a Spartan fan, I am too familiar with his many shortcomings as a coach. I welcome Razorback Nation to the John L. Smith meltdown portion of season. The embarrassments on field to [...]

Video: MSU students hit halfcourt shots to win season tickets

Michigan State University has one of the rowdiest student sections in all of college basketball. It is known as the Izzone. It’s damn near impossible to get season tickets in the Izzone. I tried every year while I was on campus, to no avail. But I digress. Earlier this week, coach Tom Izzo and the [...]

Ref to LeSean McCoy: “I need you for my fantasy team”

The NFL really doesn’t care to here your complaints about the scab referees right now, but maybe, just maybe he will listen to Philadelphia Eagles running back, LeSean McCoy. I mean, if it isn’t bad enough that the NFL hired one replacement ref that was an employee of the Seattle Seahawks, or one who is [...]

The Week That Was College Football: Week Three

I know on Friday I said there were no chances for an upset because the games being played just didn’t set up for that possibility. Per the usual the opposite of what I said happened, and well, we got the biggest upset in college football to date. The whole sport is just trolling us now, [...]

Roger Goodell is an empty suit and a hypocrite

In 2010, when Roger Goodell suspended Ben Roethlisberger, there were a few rumblings.  In 2011, when the NFL owners locked out NFLPA members, there were a few more.  Now that the league is in the midst of a labor dispute with the referee’s union, the rumblings have become a full-throated roar.  The man we were [...]

Rivals United

Rivalries oftentimes, if not every single time bring out the best and the worst on people. As someone who is familiar with having to deal with things like this, it is refreshing that there are moments where you have the opportunity to chuck away the rivalry for a better cause. Early on Monday, Everton put [...]

Report: Gregg Williams confirmed Vilma bounty on Favre

There hasn’t been much evidence offered to us, or to the current and former New Orleans Saints players that were suspended by Roger Goodell. The failure to provide evidence to all parties is one of the big reasons that his decision was overturned by a panel two weeks ago. But when Jonathan Vilma met with [...]

Losing 52-0 at home to Alabama? No problem for this Arkansas Razorbacks fan. She left this little diddy for the team a week ago after the embarrassing loss at home to Lousiana-Monroe. But she is back with a new rendition, hoping to increase the faith of the John L Smith followers. Not sure what is [...]

You might be a redneck if you were born at a racetrack parking lot

A story out of New Hampshire that is almost too good to believe. A baby won free NASCAR tickets for life for himself and his parents at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. How does an infant do that? By being birthed in the parking lot, of course. Katie Arnold, all of five pounds, was born last [...]

The NFL is a passing league. The statistics prove it and the rules mandate it.

Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith is credited with coining the term “conventional wisdom” in 1958 in his book The Affluent Society. The term has come to represent ideas that are commonplace beliefs that are acceptable and comfortable to society. The consequence of that acceptance and comfort allows conventional wisdom to be highly resistant to facts [...]

If week 1 in the NFL was all over the place for you, that means we should have a much more predictable week 2, right? The start of the NFL season is NEVER predictable. The first month is usually pretty crazy, and looks nothing like the final 3 months of the regular season. That is [...]
