LATEST STORIES FROM THE VICTORY FORMATION

Tom Izzo sums up how Michigan State’s season ended

It was great ride this season with an horrific landing. Michigan State lost to the Louisville Cardinals last night, 57-44. The Spartans just were befuddled by the Cardinals defense all night, and suffered on the boards worse than many fans can remember. The pain and disappointment from the game is still fresh and stinging. A text came last night saying “at least your team won...

Tim Tebow Jets playing card unveiled

Though he is not officially a New York Jet at the moment, that hasn’t stopped the trading card company Topps, from moving forward with a new Tim Tebow card. That be some fancy editing. This card will be part of the Topps’ Bowman football card edition that launches this May.

Happy Hour – Sweet 16

Just how good is the Big East? That is a question that seems to divide college basketball fans. You have the pro Big East camp which thinks it is the greatest conference in the history of EVAR because they annually send a lot of teams to the NCAA Tournament. Then you have the other side that thinks the Big East is fraudalicious. That they only send the amount of teams they do because...

Video: Pistons continue to invent new ways to lose

The Detroit Pistons have had a terrible season for the 3rd year in a row. Last night, they found themselves trailing the Denver Nuggets by 25 points.

Mick Pennisi… Flop-tastic

March 21 is definitely a special day for one Mick Pennisi. Mick, a long time veteran of the Philippine Basketball Association, had earlier nailed his 700th three pointer against the Petron Blaze Boosters. He is the 8th Filipino to make that many conversions from that distance. But all we will remember from that day was this instance. Mick is known for his defense and perimeter...

Drew Stanton requests release after Jets acquire Tebow

The main focus of the Jets’ acquisition of Tim Tebow is what it means for current starter Mark Sanchez. This move has a large impact on another quarterback as well, and these dominos might just stir up some qb competition in other spots around the league. That quarterback, who arguably is most impacted by Tebow’s cross country move, is Drew Stanton. Just six days ago, Stanton...

2012 MLB Previews – Boston Red Sox

I’m not here to talk about the past. I’m here with hope for the future. We all know how 2011 ended for Boston. There was much hand wringing and house cleaning. In the end, the team changed GMs, changed (and eventually firebombed) their manager, and stayed relatively quiet in free agency. In fact, the 2012 Free Agency period was one of the quietest in recent memory for the Sox...

10-year-old can squat more than you

In comparison to your body weight, at least.  10-year-old Naomi Kutin of Fairlawn NJ squatted 215 lbs, and she weighs only 93 lbs.   That’s a record for women in the 97lbs class.  The previous record was held by a 44-year-old woman from Europe.  Naomi actually held the record once before, when she was still only 9-years-old. Here is video of her previous record of 187lbs when...

Happy Hour: Where will Tebow end up

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, in a cave or a converted missile silo in the Kansas prairie you know that Tim Tebow has almost been traded to the Jets. Almost. The two sides are quibbling over who owes Timmy how much money, and may end up scuttling the trade. So, if Jets do not get their latest backup to the Sanchize, where will Tebow end up? 1) Jacksonville Jaguars This...

Tebow not headed to New York?

The blockbuster trade that just sent Tim Tebow to the Jets is not quite reality, just yet. There is a possiblity that the trade becomes nullified unless the New York Jets agree to pay $5 million back to the Denver Broncos, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The NFL and sports world were buzzing just a couple hours ago when it was originally announced that Tebow...

2012 MLB Season Preview: Los Angeles Dodgers

Dodgers fans must be ecstatic that 2011 is behind them. The McCourt divorce dragged the franchise down, and on top of that last season began with two Dodgers fans attacking a Giants fan. As the summer went on, Frank McCourt battled Commissioner Selig for control of the team. Now, the team is on the cusp of having a new owner. Even if the on-the-field product is a disaster this year...
