In case you haven’t been following the dramatic mascot saga of Ole Miss athletics, we’re here to fill you in and @RickMuscles (an Ole Miss season ticket holder) is here with photographic evidence. The mascot for Ole Miss has always been Colonel Reb which some people found to be offensive. The university was forced to replace Colonel Reb with a Black Bear. That sounds menacing...

A construction worker is probably going to get in some trouble for this sign

This sign was spotted on a Boston highway and you can guess what the missing letter is supposed to be. The sign reads “FCK LBJ”. LBJ is short for Lebron James. The Miami Heat and Lebron James will be eliminated from the playoffs if they lose Game 6 tonight. It doesn’t help their cause that the game is in Boston. You can bet that “The Jungle” will be rocking tonight at...

Toledo’s quarterback (who doesn’t play baseball) was drafted by the Padres

Terrance Owens, the quarterback of the Toledo Rockets, got a surprise the other day. It turns out he was drafted in the last round of the MLB draft. The weird thing is that he doesn’t play baseball. He was the 1,215 overall pick in the 40th round of the MLB draft. Owens isn’t planning on pursuing a Major League Baseball career and is returning to Toledo to continue being a quarterback...

You will be able to own Wisconsin’s field turf

Wisconsin finished installing new field turf at Camp Randall Stadium last week and it looks pretty sharp. What does this mean for all of that old dug up field turf? It could be yours if you can write a gigantic check for the new Student-Athlete Performance Center. Somebody has got to pay for a facility that costs 86.1 million dollars. This is all still up in the air but be weary...

Mickael Pietrus missed a wide open dunk against the Miami Heat

During Game 5 of the NBA Playoffs between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, Mickael Pietrus missed a wide open dunk opportunity. It looked like he tried to get way too fancy with it and slam it home. Instead, the ball nailed the rim and bounced off into Lebron James’ hands. The series is tied at 2-2. A win for the Celtics would be huge tonight.

Louisville adds Kentucky logos to their urinals

Kentucky and Louisville have always been fierce rivals. Both schools are located in the same state and the fan bases pretty much hate each other. The teams played each other in The Final Four this year in basketball which was a game that no one would forget. Kentucky ended up winning that game and them the NCAA basketball title.

Vanderbilt plans on building a hill for football seating

Vanderbilt is building a hill for more seating for their football stadium this season. The plan is to make it like a berm on a baseball field. This is a pretty weak move for an SEC school in my opinion. They should at least build some bleachers or something instead of just hill side seating. I’m sure James Franklin, the head coach of Vanderbilt, wants his stadium to be as loud...

Even though we are 92 days away from the kick off between the Clemson Tigers and Auburn Tigers, the clock reads something different.

Enter Harrison Watson, an Ohio State fan that issued a bounty on whatever player could sideline this recruit. He said he...

Does this look like a football practice field to you? Probably not. Ever since Tropical Storm Beryl came through the Jacksonville area, the Jaguars were forced to conduct practice in an area that resembles a food court. We can only hope Ron Prince (a Jaguar’s assistant coach) was behind this decision. There may be some tables and chairs in their way and there isn’t any field...

Leo Nunez is 29 and from the Dominican Republic, the pitcher on the other hand is 30 and is really called Juan Carlos Oviedo. In July, the Marlins will be getting a new pitcher, but one with a familiar...
