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…

New Kickoff Rule in College Football Stinks

The World’s Quickest 2018 College Football Playoff Preview

Oklahoma vs. Georgia Yeah, I know that Baker Mayfield is sick (or hungover from a bender), but I am not going to bet against him. There is a reason why Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy: the dude can ball. The only thing I don’t like about the Sooners is that they do not play defense….
