30 Teams in 30 Days: #30 The University of South Florida Bulls

The Story: USF seems to carry the same fairy tale story into each season. Upset a big named opponent, start with a solid record…enter conference play and completely crap the bed. They opened the season upsetting Notre Dame in South Bend, and managed to finish with a 5-7 record (1-6 in conference), missing a bowl [...]

The Morning After – July 30, 2012 edition

Greetings in this cold and chilly day. First things, first. I am fine after the weather disturbance internationally named Saola passed by the island’s northern portion. Dams were near spillage levels, some of those in the low-lying levels were evacuated as precautions. Classes are suspended, but of course, work will have to go on, as [...]

I WANT MY TV

Bears' Moore borrows a fan's TV

When players arrive at NFL Training Camps, they are supposed to be squarely focused on getting in shape, learning the playbook, and preparing themselves for what will be a grueling 16-game schedule (plus those meaningless preseason games). Most teams train at smaller university campuses, away from distractions, and the players board in the dorms. Like [...]

There is a new era of football in Happy Valley, and that may mean wholesale changes, including a change to the classic Penn State Nittany Lions uniform.

Rex Ryan: I’m “the best defensive coach in football”

And he has finally broke his silence. Rex Ryan has been relatively quiet this past offseason. There have been zero predictions about the New York Jets reaching the Super Bowl, nothing about how he has the best team in the league, and no run-ins at concerts with middle fingers wagging. He has been busy losing [...]

Group of Magic fans create website to answer the biggest Dwight Howard question

At this point, I don’t think anyone in Orlando really cares where Dwight goes, or what we get for him in return. We just want him out of our papers. Off our news. Out of our lives (except for those 2-4 games a year where he’ll come in and deflower the new squad). With the [...]

Video: CFL player celebrates early in 117-yard return

I believe it is important to note that Canadian Football League player Chris Williams has been apart of two NFL organizations. They are the Miami Dolphins and the Cleveland Browns. I think that is pertinent information before viewing this. The missed field goal return happens quite often, and Hamilton Tiger-Cats receiver obviously though he had [...]

Starling Marte welcomes himself to the Majors

There are some exciting things happening with the Pittsburgh Pirates. They are only 2 games out of first place as we near the final two months of the season, a position they haven’t been close to this late in the year since Bill Clinton told everyone he didn’t inhale. And if the playoffs began today, [...]

It was a really rough 2011 NFL season for Detroit Lions star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh both on and off-the-field. While he under-performed in his second season in the league, Suh was also involved in a one-car accident in Portland, Oregon while he was in the midst of a 2-game suspension for losing control during [...]

Happy Hour – Summer Olympics

The Summer Olympics officially begin this weekend in a country I used to call home, England. I’m not a huge fan of the Olympics but it will give me something to watch for 16 days as I count down until the start of football season. I will be most interested in basketball, where the USA [...]

Saints still acting as heroes, just not for the fans

Football returned to New Orleans on September 25, 2006, during a raucous and over-the-top production of Monday Night Football. The city was still limping from the horrific damage caused to it by Hurricane Katrina just 13 months prior, including severe structural damages to the Louisiana Superdome, which served as a shelter to thousands of the [...]

Oh, he’s back alright. Chad Johnson, the receiver formerly known as Chad Ochocinco, is back doing what he does best. No, not catching touchdown passes, it has been about 4 or 5 years since he did that really well. Sorry Miami Dolphins fans, we are talking about him speaking with the media. Chad, who changed [...]
