LATEST STORIES FROM THE VICTORY FORMATION

R.A. Dickey set to become a children’s author

You’re probably most familiar with R.A. Dickey because of his day job.  This season, Dickey has been nothing short of masterful, tossing five complete games, three of which were shutouts, racking up 195 strikeouts against only 45 walks, with a tidy WHIP of only 1.02.  A banner year by any measure.  Now though, it seems [...]

Derek Dooley has terrible hair discipline

Derek Dooley, the precious head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers who once famously derided his team’s awful shower discipline, is having issues.  Dooley normally sports an immaculate coiffure, but today at practice, his hair discipline was out of control.  At the risk of crossing memes, Mark Richt has lost control of Derek Dooley’s hair.  If [...]

Nats blast 6 HR in consecutive games

Since 1918, only two teams had belted six homeruns in consecutive games. The Dodgers did it in Colorado in 1996, and when the Expos were playing that ridiculous schedule that sent them to Puerto Rico for some home games in 2003, the Angels did it. Now, the franchise that was on the receiving end of [...]

Virginia Tech fans get what college football is all about

From time to time, most of us here at TVF will travel to football games to watch our favorite teams play. Dave went to the Super Bowl last season, I traveled with Spencer and Hawkeye to Iowa City to see the Buckeyes and Hawkeyes, and Trey made the trip to Tuscaloosa to see the Gators [...]

Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish

Good bye, you piece of **** Art Modell.  It’s never a happy day when someone dies, but…oh, wait, yes it is a happy day.  We lost a disgusting visage of hypocrisy and greed today, and for that, we should all celebrate.  This is a man who through his own bumbling idiocy somehow claimed financial troubles [...]

Jeremy Lin is 'Hello Kitty' in Taiwan mini-movie

While new Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin developed a cult-like following as a member of the Knicks last season, he became a bona fide rock star in Taiwan. In fact, with Yao Ming retired, it can be argued that Lin is the biggest athlete in Asia, figuratively speaking, of course. Lin is now greeted [...]

Kiwanuka: JPP can break record with 30 sacks

The New York Giants begin their title defense tonight, and one of the biggest reasons they were able to win it all last year is Jason Pierre-Paul. The 3rd round beast of a defensive end terrorized offenses, specifically QBs in limited reps. He started in only 12 of the 16 games he played in, and [...]

Remember last fall when Michigan State players started playing on the Twitter and it made Mark Dantonio mad? Things improved from there, but MSU and Twitter are sharing headlines again.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t sold out their first game with 85% rule

Growing up, the Bucs never sold out a game. Well, I take that back, there was that occasional game when the Cowboys would roll into town. However, the majority of my youth contained visions of empty metal bleachers reflecting the sun, while 30,000 or fans where scalding while watching the Bucs get rolled at Tampa [...]

There are a few things that might stand out from this years edition of Hard Knocks featuring the Miami Dolphins. Maybe it was Ryan Tannehill’s wife, or his phone number, but most likely it was Chad Johnson, even though he was off the team before we could all get used to him in teal. His [...]

Bill Belichick’s hard-on for tight ends continues with Kellen Winslow, Jr

We all learned a few weeks ago about New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick’s infatuation with Warren Sapp when he was the head coach of the Browns. That is nothing compared to the recent run he has had on tight ends with the Pats. The Patriots now have an interest in recently released Kellen [...]

Houston Cougars offensive coordinator resigns after only one game

Who had Mike Nesbitt of the Houston Cougars as the first offensive coordinator resigning after just one game? “Anyone? Something-d-o-o economics.” Voodoo econ, I mean, of course you didn’t.

Nobody wants Allen Iverson on their basketball team. After all, who has room for a troubled shoot first guard that has been out of the league for 3 years? I know, there are still some diehards out there that would love to see him get one last shot at glory in the NBA, but Iverson [...]

The Week That Was College Football: Week ONE

Last Thursday we were treated to the first steps of a very young college football season. In my thirty plus years of experience referred to by many as “life,” I’ve come to know that the first weekend of college football is one of the worst weekends in the arsenal. It’s the equivalent of the canned [...]

Rex Ryan: “Getting fired isn’t a possibility”

Last week, we saw glimpses of the old Rex Ryan returning. First, he boasted about his team, how it was the best one he has had since he became coach of the New York Jets, with a slight hedge. Then he ripped into the selection of wide receiver Stephen Hill. But now we finally have the quote that solidifies the return [...]
