WATCH: Malik Zaire Shows Off His Arm With a 68-Yard Touchdown Bomb in Notre Dame's Spring Game

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly has a bit of a conundrum on his hands this off-season. Does he usher in the new and start Malik Zaire or does he go with the vet in Everett Golson. From the look of things in the spring game it appears that we may get a platoon situation with Golson being given a green light to run if he is not sure about the throw and Zaire doing the bulk of the...

Todd Gurley Medical Re-Check Reveals Knee is Fine, Will be Ready for Training Camp

Former Georgia running back Todd Gurley seemed to be a lock to go in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft. Then, a devastating knee injury derailed his 2014 season, putting his draft stock into question. It also didn’t help that Gurley would not let NFL team doctors test out his knee at February’s scouting combine, though that may also have been a result of it being so close...

Vine: Alabama OL Cam Robinson Caught A Screen Pass In The Tide’s Spring Game

Spring games are often a time for teams to have some fun on the field and show off for fans. Even Alabama’s Nick Saban, known for his serious approach, allowed for some chicanery in the Crimson Tide’s A-Day contest. Saban let his offense dial up a misdirection screen pass from quarterback Alec Morris to 6-foot-6, 326-pound left tackle Cam Robinson. As you might expect, Robinson...

WATCH: Cardale Jones Connects on 58-Yard Touchdown Pass With Corey Grant during Ohio State Spring Game

Carsale Jones' stat line is not a good indication of how good his play was during Ohio State's spring game Saturday afternoon. The 304 yards is acceptable but completing just 19 of 42 passes does not make for a good day. In fairness to Jones, the completion percentage is going to be low when you call an unusual number of deep balls like the team did.Odds are when you throw a lot...
