    NCAA College Football Pick’em: Week 9

    After a disappointing 1-2 performance in week 7, we were able to bounce back strong in week 8 by going an impressive 3-0. thanks in large part to our “go against the top-ranked team” strategy.  Oklahoma simply couldn’t get the job done in Missouri, as we predicted, while Michigan State used another late rally against […]

    Notre Dame Videographer Suffers Fatal Fall At Practice (Video)

    Tragedy struck the University of Notre Dame yesterday as Declan Sullivan of Long Grove, Illinois died when the scissor life he was filming the Fighting Irish’s practice from fell over after being blown by the 50 mph gusting winds. The 20-year-old student was in a hydraulic scissor lift, which was stretched across a street 50 […]

    Could This Be The Greatest Sports Blow-Up Ever? (Audio)

    Earlier in the year when minor league baseball manager Wally Backman had his epic mic’d up tirade on an umpire, I thought we would never see anything quite like it again.  Guess I was wrong. Florida Atlantic color commentator Dave Lamont not only equaled Backman’s performance, but I would go so far as to say […]

    NCAA College Football Pick’em: Week 8

    Week 7 saw another No. 1 ranked team bite the dust as Ohio State was throttled by a hungrier Wisconsin team.  With top-seeded teams falling in each of the last two weekends, perhaps I should consider betting against them next time, rather than with them.  As you will see, that is the game plan heading […]

    Picture Of The Day: America’s Version Of Cigar Guy

    Just when we thought the legacy of Cigar Guy was dying down, he suddenly reappears at the most unlikely of locations: In the stands at a college football game between the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Kentucky Wildcats.  And it appears as though he has lost his shirt somewhere along his journey from Wales to […]

    2010 NCAA College Football Pick’em: Week 7

    Last week I said I would continue to ride the Alabama Crimson Tide until they give me a reason not to.  That reason came last week as their defense had no answer for Stephen Garcia and the South Carolina Gamecocks offense, who would go on to upset the nation’s top-ranked team by a score of […]

    Picture Of The Day: Someone Has Some Busy Hands

    It is great to see players celebrate with their die-hard fans, but perhaps leaping into the stands is not always the best of ideas.  Especially when you consider the tendency some fans have for grabbing anything in sight, whether it be a breast, a groin, or a dangerously close inner thigh. I guess when you […]

    Nothing Says Rivalry Quite Like A Fan Brawl (Video)

    When it comes to college football rivalries, it doesn’t get much bigger than Miami vs. Florida State.  If that wasn’t evident by all the hype surrounding their game, it certainly became evident after taking a look into the stands this past Saturday when these two schools hooked up for an important in-state battle with plenty […]

    The Saddest Onside Kick Ever, via Texas Tech (Video)

    Attempting an onside kick early in a football game can present quite the dilemma.  A successful one is enough to make the coach, kicker and players all look great.  But when they fail, you can pretty much get your goat horns ready. As for this first quarter attempt by Texas Tech in their battle against […]

    2010 NCAA College Football Pick’em: Week 6

    Last week’s NCAA action provided a glimpse as to who the real BCS contenders are, and those who are just pretenders.  Fortunately for us, we had two of those contenders right in Alabama and Oklahoma.  And just when it seemed as though Stanford would make it 3-for-3 for us, they were unable to hold onto […]

    The Georgia Bulldogs couldn’t be happier to see their start wide receiver A.J. Green back in the line-up on Saturday in Colorado, and he certainly didn’t disappoint.  After serving a four-game suspension for selling his 2009 Independence Bowl jersey to an agent, the man that many believe to be the best wideout in college football […]

    Barry Sanders Jr. Will Remind You Of Barry Sanders (Video)

    If you are like me, you probably miss the days when Barry Sanders dominated opposing run defenses with his slick moves and game breaking speed.  In the current NFL we have players like Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles that are capable of producing flashes of brilliance, but none of them can do it […]
