Clemson: Alabama 2.0

Folks who follow college football say there are three things that are certain: death, taxes, and Alabama. Time to add Clemson to that list. This was supposed to be a “rebuilding” year for Clemson. How were the Tigers supposed to replenish the offensive talent it lost a year ago to the draft? Who was going…

All Is Not Lost for Florida State

The final score may not show it, but the Alabama-Florida State game was VERY competitive. Both teams have, as we say, “a bunch of dudes”.  Athletes all over the field.  The Crimson Tide and Seminoles are littered with future NFL players.

Myles Garrett Is Top Pick by Default

In two nights we sports fans will be glued to our TVs, computers and smartphones.   Not the NBA playoffs (as exciting as it is), not baseball, and we can’t even find the NHL playoffs on TV (damn Gary Bettman).  It’s the NFL Draft, baby.  Every year we get to pontificate over several things heading…
