    9 Reasons Why Reggie Bush Should Keep His Heisman

    Over the past few weeks, you couldn’t swing a dead virtual cat on the Internet without hitting a story on the Reggie Bush Heisman scandal/decision. Reports yesterday indicate that he will be stripped of his Heisman for the first time in the history of the award. Yes, he broke NCAA rules. Yes, he would have […]

  • 9 Reasons Madden Football is Better Than the NFL

    9 Reasons Madden Football is Better Than the NFL

    The NFL is great. But the NFL as played in the Madden franchise of video games has surpassed it. It’s time the real NFL fired their human players and made the switch to a 100% digital league. It would do wonders for the salary cap. Am I being serious. My heart says no, but this […]

  • 9 NFL Teams to Watch in 2010

    9 NFL Teams to Watch in 2010

    Over the course of the past decade, parity in the NFL has all but killed the idea of an underdog.

I inserted the […]

  • 9 Douchebags You’ll Find In Your Fantasy Football League

    9 Douchebags You’ll Find In Your Fantasy Football League

    It is estimated that there are nearly 30 million fantasy football players in the United States. We estimate that at least 20 million of them are total douchebags.

    9 Colleges with the Hottest Sports Fans

    While most every state school has its share of talent due to enrollment alone, what we are looking for in this list is concentration of talent. I’m sure Amherst has some hot girls, but if you go to one of their football games, are you going to feel awash in a sea of hotties? Probably […]

    Can you put a price on dignity and integrity? For many, that answer is no. Fortunately for us, for the vast majority of athletes, that answer is a resounding yes.

  • 9 of the Greatest College Stadiums for Tailgating

    9 of the Greatest College Stadiums for Tailgating

    Make no mistake, the greatest stadiums for tailgating have nothing to do with the stadiums themselves, but everything to do with the people, atmosphere, and importance of the game. They could turn the Parthenon in Greece into a college football venue, but if Colorado St. is playing UNC-Asheville, it loses to Saturdays in Madison every […]

  • 9 College Football Teams to Look Out For in 2010

    9 College Football Teams to Look Out For in 2010

    For such a tumultuous off-season in college football, it doesn’t seem like much has changed. Realignment was supposed to decimate the Big 12 and concentrate the power even more. That didn’t happen. Rockstar quarterbacks from Oklahoma, Texas, and Florida all went pro, but they still all sit pretty in the preseason polls. USC is playing […]

  • 9 Douchebags You’ll Find At a College Football Game

    9 Douchebags You’ll Find At a College Football Game

    College football is awesome. College football fans… not so much. It’s fine to root for your alma matter or adopt the hometown team in a non-NFL city like Norman, Baton Rouge or, say, Los Angeles. However, with college football fans there is a line of douchebaggery that is crossed with great frequency. On the other […]

    Almost everyone gets annoying after two hours. In fact, it takes a special gift NOT to be annoying after an extended period of time.

  • 9 Reasons College Football Is Better Than the NFL

    9 Reasons College Football Is Better Than the NFL

    Thank God we don’t have to pick between one or the other. The debate over whether or not college ball is better than the NFL has been raging for years, but the widespread popularity of fantasy football, in addition to outrage over the BCS system has seemingly tilted the scales towards the NFL in recent […]

    9 Awesome Baseball Manager Tirades We Will Never Forget

    As Lou Piniella lays down his spikes this week and retires from the Cubs, he gives us a legacy to look back on unlike any other active manager.

    9 Sports Commercial Stunts So Cool No One Cares If They’re Fake

    While athletes have the ability to amaze us on the field, the advent of viral videos allows many of those same athletes to blow us away just by screwing around. Be it during practice, outtakes during commercials or photo shoots, even when the pressure’s off and nothing’s at stake, the best of the best can […]

  • 9 Defunct Sports Venues We Wish Were Still Around

    9 Defunct Sports Venues We Wish Were Still Around

    Generally speaking, time brings progress. A forty year-old ball park should be replaced by a new one that is more comfortable, better looking, and presumably, more interesting. This is almost always the case. Almost always. Below are a few of the rare instances in which a ballpark, arena, or stadium has proven itself superior to […]

  • 9 Greatest Simpsons Sports Cameos

    9 Greatest Simpsons Sports Cameos

    The Simpsons’ charm is the fact that it’s a topical geeky show. And geeky shows aren’t the type to treat athletes reverentially. Rather than treat legends like Namath, Frazier, Madden, and Pele like brightly burning stars, they grant them no exception to the ribbing they give everyone else on God’s green earth. Not sure you […]
