Michigan over UCF?! REALLY???

For the record, I am – and have been for a while – a supporter of a playoff in college football. It may have taken me a while to warm up to the idea, but I eventually came around.  And so far, the lead-up to the final College Football Playoff rankings by the committee has…

No Credit for Maryland Firing Durkin

So lemme get this straight. Not even 24 hours after the Board of Trustees at the University of Maryland said it was best to bring back head football coach D.J. Durkin despite him being responsible for the death of 19-year-old Jordan McNair, the school fired his ass yesterday. Durkin was a man who led a…

Why would Meyer be so stupid as to cover up the heinous acts of a freaking wide receivers coach? Didn’t Meyer know…

Supreme Court Ruling on Gambling Prosperous for Pro Sports

(Editor’s note: this is an old-ass post I’ve long forgotten about. Oh well…) This is a day I thought would NEVER happen.  EVER. When I saw that the Supreme Court ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA) was unconstitutional, I immediately assumed that the sports leagues would be panicking like…

Mayfield and Jackson: Best QB Picks in First Round

Now before y’all go off on me for an perceived use of hyperbole, understand something. ALL of the top five QBs in this draft are flawed — some could argue VERY flawed. Baker Mayfield’s hot-headedness and off the field issues. Sam Darnold being a turnover machine. Josh Allen’s lack of accuracy and performance in a…
