LATEST STORIES FROM THE VICTORY FORMATION

When Special Teams Are Special

Sometimes, special teams are special in a good way, and other times the exact opposite is true.  What we have here is a combination of both.   That’s Hayden Knudson from Hayfield Secondary School in Alexandria, VA.  I can honestly say I’ve never seen anything like that before.  And to get your Thursday off to a good start, here’s the latest from The Black Keys, because...

Happy Hour: 20 Years Ago….

 To keep with the “This Day in History” them for the afternoon, let’s have a 5 minute look back at game 6 of what has been described as the best World Series ever, the 1991 Series between the Minnesota Twins and Atlanta Braves. After taking three games at Atlanta-Fulton County stadium, the Twins returned to Metrodome on the brink of losing the Series.  Before the game, Kirby...

Patrick Myshrall suffers from Down Syndrome but still practices with the team every day, and recently got a chance to have a moment on the field that he could call his very own.

Best of One

That's not me I have just finished a delicious plate of crow. The crow is tasty because I’d rather be wrong about predictions of boredom. I typed here last week that this would be a World Series without sizzle, and what do you know we have the kind of sizzle that passes your steak-joint table on a platter as it heads to some lucky person’s mouth. There have been four great...

Could a C-USA/Mountain West/Big East Agreement = Steps Towards A Playoff

With the departure of WVU, the Big East is left in the really awesome position of having four teams left to represent their conference. Unfortunately, the NCAA requires at least 7 teams to have a conference (oh, boo.) A quick glance suggests none of those schools can single handedly carry a newly rebuilt conference, which leaves he conference scrambling. Early reports have Boise...

Almost 20 Years Later, Christian Laettner Still Owns Kentucky

The NBA lockout has paved the way for several “pick-up games” featuring the league’s best talent. For example, the Miami Heat trio organized a game they dubbed the South Florida All-Star Classic. It featured several NBA stars and gave basketball fans a little reprive from the labor ******** that will probably follow this sport for a few more months. Taking advanage of the idea...

Happy Hour

Things got a little clearer in the BCS championship race this past weekend with Chokelahoma and Wisconsin losing. Seriously can we put a moratorium on Oklahoma being ranked in the top 5 preseason until they stop choking? Anyway, let’s see what the remaining contenders’ chances are. LSU/Alabama: The winner of the SEC is going to be in the BCS championship and it really all boils...

It’s Time the NHL Made Visors Mandatory

The video doesn’t show anything graphic, but it will make you sick to your stomach. Considering the guy that got injured, it makes it even more shocking just how bad the reaction was and how quickly he got off the ice. Last night at Wells Fargo Center, Chris Pronger took a high stick from Mikhail Grabovski on a shot follow through. You can hear in the video Pronger screaming in...

TWTWCFB: Eighter-ade

Week 8 of the college football season was looking absolutely dreadful, and then the night games started up. One after another (with a little help from mother nature)the two best games went on. It left a day that looked rather bland, completely stud worthy… Where the wind goes…You begin to expect this annually from Oklahoma. The Sooners play the role a of dominating power top...

The Odds-On Favorite: Gambler’s Regrets, Week 7

If you’ve ever walked out of a casino penniless you’ve likely felt Gambler’s Regret.  You look back on what just happened trying to pinpoint where it all went wrong.  Maybe you were up a little bit at some point and thought about leaving, but ultimately pushed your luck a bit too far.  Maybe you played perfect strategy at a table, but then the dealer turned over a brutal...

This Week in Crazy Fans: Slapsgiving Comes Early

Let’s take a short jog down memory lane, shall we? The month was May, and Dan Uggla couldn’t hit a baseball to save his ugly, stupid, annoying faux hawk’s life. Braves fans everywhere were getting pissy about the fact that @fauxfrankwren signed Sir Biceps of the Smedium Jersey to an extension without ever having seen him play in an Atlanta uniform. I took to calling him #struggla...

Making Sense of Michigan State’s B1G Win

The adrenaline is all gone, and I have finally stopped watching the highlights from Michigan State’s dramatic victory over Wisconsin this past Saturday night in East Lansing. The ending was almost exactly how teams draw up a Hail Mary pass play, but instead of Keith Nichol catching the deflection off the defender attempting to knock it down, he caught it off of BJ Cunningham...

Video: KJ Dillon Channels Superman

Cue the music If you aren’t impressed by this play by Apopka (Fla.) High star Kimlon “KJ” Dillon, then you must be Colin Cowherd. See, Colin Cowherd isn’t impressed by anything. Anyway, he dove 5 full yards. 15 feet! In Pads!
