Jeffrey Loria, the owner of the Miami Marlins, has zero interest investing his mass fortune into the roster of the team. This man has oodles of money and convinced the city government to use tax-payer money on a brand new stadium in a terrible area of Miami, and he gutted the roster before the inaugural season at it concluded. Needless to say, this man saves money whenever he can...
After what seems like years, I am finally back on the winning side of things for the week, with a 2-1 record last week. I’m not going to spend a lot of time patting myself on the back for the…Read more →
It is a new day, and a new report has surfaced in the Jonathan Martin/Richie Incognito story. While Miami Dolphins players and coaches defend the culture in their locker room, a new twist has come up in the bullying allegations, and they center around a reportedly strong suggestion from GM Jeff Ireland.
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, Ireland was contacted by Rick...
t seems that a new trend is emerging, and it’s sure to be the next thing to fire up the “pay the players” crowd. A recent article in USA Today explains how college football coaches are now trademarking their name and likeness, and perhaps a phrase. While there will no doubt be some items marketed to a certain consumer base, this is likely about protecting the name and likeness...
Alternate helmets are here to stay. I’m still trying to get a grassroots movement going so that Gruff Sparty shows up on MSU’s helmets. In the meantime, here is LSU paying homage to the locally grown, but nationally popular Duck…Read more →
This past week, the NFL had its newest off-the-field issue. We have moved far beyond bounty-gate, or Riley Cooper dropping the ‘n’ word at a concert, and even the discussion about CTE has quieted down a bit since the league…Read more →
The Heisman race has almost been narrowed down to 3 players in the MSM coverage but there is one stupid, little, nagging name that still exists and hasn't been burned yet. AJ McCarron (QB, Alabama) is the chic Heisman pick among people who think QB Wins are a real stat and that the award for best individual player in college football is just using the whole "single player...
In Portland, OR, Randall Burbach is the football coach at Corbett Middle School. Or rather, he was, until he ran afoul of parents and administrators over the restaurant of choice for the team’s awards banquet. The choice was left to…Read more →
Week 10 of the college football lacked some serious girth… It makes me want to staple my face to the table…There was not a lot of newsworthy college football action from this past Saturday, so before I get into the…Read more →
So ESPN is going All-Access with both LSU and Alabama for this week's big game between SEC powers. As part of it, ESPN reporter Kaylee Hartung went on a ride-along with Les Miles. He then ran a red light. He then gave a great excuse Read more →
James Dolan, Knicks owner and Boz Scaggs Super Fan, is an irritable man. Things which have attracted his ire include the NFL, Russian billionaires, Frank Isola, and now you can add the innocent task of dancing, perhaps because it’s leads…Read more →
The Cleveland Cavaliers shocked everyone in the NBA Draft this past June when they selected Anthony Bennett #1 overall. Many believed they would take Nerlens Noel or Victor Oladipo, but opted for the one that scouts had labeled as ‘the…Read more →
Now that we’re a few weeks into the official BCS rankings, there is much debate and hand-wringing over who might go undefeated, who will leapfrog whom, who will get left out, and all the arguments and debates that come along…Read more →
Flashback to March 2005 at the FedEx Forum.
Darius Washington was a freshman sensation. He was the second leading scorer for the Tigers and its leading assist man.
But most remember him for this moment, whose postscript was well-written in SI by Grant Wahl.Read more →
The New York Jets may be a roller coaster, but the Tampa Bay Bucs are a dumpster fire. This has led at least one fan to wonder aloud whether Revis is happy with his increased salary on his new team,…Read more →
If you don't follow me on Twitter, or you ignore those same tweets on the sidebar, you may have missed that my wife and I had our third child last Thursday. Both mommy and little girl are doing well, especially after watching Shilique Calhoun, Denicos Allen and Michigan State's defense destroy whatever it was that Michigan claims to have put out on the football field. Yes...

I’m not sure who looks freakier at this point. Pat Sajak or Vanna White? In any event, because of the continued success of game show “Wheel of Fortune,” they have remained relevent (thanks plastic surgeons!). Sajak has over 14K followers…Read more →
Last Week 1-2
After a couple weeks of futility, I finally came back on the winning side last week, albeit only in one game. Stanford covered in Corvalis against Oregon State, who played better than I expected they would, which hopefully they can continue to this week (Spoiler Alert!). The Air Force pick was risky going in, I knew it, and I got burnt. Clemson came...
Camouflage is supposed to hide an object from anyone that is looking. In the case of Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, it brings a ton of a attention. Earlier in the week, Gordon discussed the car with ESPN: “It…Read more →
