How can one be merely a fan – or even just an open-minded observer – of the sports world given the bizarre events of the last week or so?

  • Jerome Simpson continues to be a joke

    Wes Brunner
    19 Sep 2014 | 11:46 am
    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times; well…find a different uniform. Once again, Jerome Simpson has proven that he has no control over his love of drugs and alcohol. Simpson was cited for marijuana possession and an open container on July 7. With as many distractions as the Vikings have had the past week, I think it’s safe to say that we need to send him packing. The only reason that we’ve kept him around for so long was for his “potential” as a deep threat. Well, you can’t be a deep threat if you’re constantly in trouble with the law.
  • What we’ve learned from the NFL through Week 2

    James Turnage
    18 Sep 2014 | 2:27 pm
    I can describe what I haven’t seen in two weeks of the NFL in a single word; DEFENSE. I have never seen so many wide open receivers in every game I watched. That included the Vikings, the Patriots, the Packers, the Chargers, the Raiders, and the Champion Seahawks.  I knew the NFL had become an offensive league, but Sunday’s lack of defensive play was appalling. There were other indicators of what the 2014 season will be like in the next 15 weeks. Gains or losses through free agency have helped some teams and hurt others. The New York Giants are as bad as they were in 2013.

    A commentary by James Turnage A continuing increase in the number of NFL players who are experiencing legal troubles or who have violated the league’s substance abuse policy is creating a rumble within the community of players, coaches, sports writers and fans. That, combined with rule changes, often unjustly enforced, is resulting in the question; is the NFL in trouble? Now a superstar, Adrian Peterson is in the news, and not in a positive way. Is this the result of a league which has become so greedy, it has overlooked potential problems with young men who become overnight millionaires?

    Critics met the moves made by Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman with much skepticism this off-season. Among the moves panned was the decision to let arguably its top two play-makers in the secondary, Mike Mitchell and Captain Munnerlyn, sign big free agent contracts elsewhere. He replaced them by signing veteran castoffs such as Roman Harper, Thomas DeCoud, and Antoine Cason to fill the holes in their depleted secondary. Allowing his second and third receivers to seek employment elsewhere was also criticized, but not nearly as much as his decision to cut Steve Smith Sr., the…

    Is having luck how the Philadelphia Eagles pulled off a win Monday night? I’m sure there are plenty of message boards and bar-goers that think so. And there are even more that think the refs handed them the game. Honestly, the truth is somewhere in between Eagles Monday night win. Philly played an uneventful, albeit an atrocious, first half. Nick Foles held onto the ball too long (and he had plenty of time to do so) and still missed wide-open receivers. Foles missed an open Riley Cooper across the middle several times, once in a key spot that would have given the Eagles a crucial first…

    AN IMPORTANT DEBATE Last night during the Auburn/Kansas State game Bill Snyder gently suggested that, in his halftime adjustments, one thing the Wildcats needed to do was conceal their signals better. This implies that Auburn was reading Kansas State's offensive signals sent in to the quarterback, and thus knew what was coming on every play.

    THE NICEST HIGHLANDER NEBULOUS STATISTICAL COMPARISONS OF DUBIOUS VALIDITY Can you quantify how annoying a team is to play? Probably, and a good place to start for that offensively would be looking at the split between run and pass, and how balanced you are because nothing is more annoying than an offense capable of doing both with equal proficiency. Through just two games Kansas State is already on schedule to be the most obnoxious team to defend in college football, balancing out at 472 yards rushing to 477 yards passing on the year. This year they're sitting at a 56.0% run rate on standard…

After all, much of what exactly happened with the NFL’s disciplining and vacillating on Ray Rice is not fully resolved. Roger Goodell still has a job. Peter King still has a job. Meanwhile, there’s an ongoing investigation that major media companies that are in bed with the league will not stop calling “independent”. And yet, even as it swam in the filthy wake of the days that preceded it, this week still managed to be pretty damn terrible in its own right.

It’s difficult to identify a collapsing team before the collapse actually happens, because typically such a team needs not only to have some obvious weak spots, but it generally also needs some unfortunate chance events in those areas to push it over the edge. The Flyers do have some chinks in crucial places in their metaphorical armour, and for the most part those flaws went unaddressed in a summer during which the team was hampered by its salary-cap situation. indicates that the team is nearly $5 million…

    The current champions three victories on Friday have left him only four behind Ryan Moore in the riders championshipThe runners in the first race here on Friday emerged from a gloomy grey mist but the haze lifted as the afternoon went on and Richard Hughes brought a similar degree of clarity to the race for the jockeys title. Already long odds-on for the championship before racing, despite trailing Ryan Moore by seven winners, Hughes took three of the first five races, prompting several of the layers still offering odds to close their books and effectively anoint Hughes as the champion once…

    Sports Are 80 Percent Mental

  • Maybe Your Kids Inherited Your Couch Potato Genes

    26 Aug 2014 | 8:26 am
    On the road to sports success, young athletes need two ingredients, innate skills and the willingness and determination to get better.  We all know boys and girls who showed early promise that got them noticed but then didn’t have the drive to practice every day to develop that talent.  Often labeled lazy or unmotivated, the assumption was that they chose their own path by not working hard.  However, new research shows evidence that genetics may play a role not only in the natural abilities of a developing superstar but also in their practice persistence and…

    Going into the start of football season, there is plenty of expert commentary on what makes up the “right stuff” when evaluating quarterbacks. Everything from arm strength to height to foot skills to the size of their hands was measured and dissected to find the magic combination of variables. While the body mechanics of delivering a football on target are vital, QBs rely even more on their vision both before and after the ball is snapped.It’s not just knowing where and when to look at an opposing defense but also understanding what to look for across the line. Defensive players are…
  • How To Train The Runner's Brain - An Interview With Jason Fitzgerald

    5 Jun 2014 | 10:49 am
    As productive human athletes, we just assume that we can knock down any walls put in front of us and conquer new feats of greatness if "we just put our mind to it."  Our conscious brain sets goals, gives pep talks and convinces us that with the right training plan, we can finish a race of any distance. But, when we're stretching our training run farther than ever before, the little voice in our head pops up to try to talk some sense into us; "that's enough for today" or "there's a lot of pain happening right now, time to quit."  As I discussed in last week's post about the…

    What makes an endurance athlete quit? Not quit the sport, but quit during a competition.  Every runner, swimmer, or cyclist starts a race with the desire to win or at least achieve a personal best time.  They’ve done the pre-race math - keep at a certain pace for the entire distance to achieve the target time.  Their wearable technology keeps them updated on heart rate, distance and split times to stay on that pace.  However, at the finish line, many athletes are not able to maintain their strides/strokes per minute, giving in to the perception that their energy tank is…

    It’s rather interesting; when championships are spoken of, a great deal of people are actually speaking of surrounding social affairs.  The commentary centers upon commercials, foods, drinks, and places for getting our groove on. Sports now goes well beyond fans, sponsors, players, coaches and venues.  Factually, we can very much have sports’ how and when we like; the truly personalized experience. In today’s society, we don’t like others to encroach upon whom we support. The choice, bluntly stated, is individually ours to make. Bestow all the accolades you desire on your team, just…
  • Where Are The Ryder Cup Headlines This Year?

    The 2014 Ryder Cup is just around the corner with final team selections now announced. Play is scheduled to begin on September 23 at the Gleneagles Hotel golf course in Perthshire, Scotland. The event is the most counter-intuitive in the game of golf because it is a team event based on match play. This takes away the convenient story line for news broadcasts that love to discuss a single winner, who politely doffs his hat at the trophy celebration or bestows a photographic kiss on the brass cup he just won. The headlines also tout the enormous sums available in prize money at various events.

    The Anaheim Ducks are coming off one of the best seasons in team history with regards to regular season wins. They finished second in the league behind only Boston, who edged them out by one point. They ended up winning their first round matchup vs Dallas (4-2), but were eventually defeated in round two by the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.  The key to the Ducks success is the incredible consistency throughout the lineup. At first glance, people just see the massive point totals coming from the Ducks’ Superstars – Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. What most people do not notice…

The ones that do, are the ones that become Champions. The rest become good at losing and making excuses.  Which category are you in now?  Champions have mastered the mental game by learning to control their fears and dominating their emotions.  I have been studying the mental aspect…
  • Which Big Business Makes A Good Race Sponsor?

    22 Aug 2014 | 9:59 am
    With sponsorship spending on endurance sports events exceeding the $108 million per year, its no wonder big business is sponsoring these events. The mid-to-high socio-economic class of endurance events participants attracts many brands to sponsor endurance events. Interestingly enough many of these big business brands are not the typical sporting brands one would expect to find. Would a laundry detergent brand make a good running race sponsor? How about a deodorant brand or a cellular carrier? Putting your brand’s logo in front of your target audience is one thing, while tying your…

    Kyle Jones
    19 Sep 2014 | 12:10 pm
    As the Buckeyes looked to move past back-to-back losses to end the 2013 campaign, the weakest spot on a team that had won 24 straight games was clear: a pass defense that ranked 112th in the country by year's end. After secondary coach Everett Withers moved on to take the head coaching job at James Madison, Urban Meyer brought in Ash to install the latest defensive coaching trend in college football, the Cover 4 defense. Led by programs like Michigan State and Alabama, the Cover 4 is considered to be the best schematic approach to stopping spread formations and plays that look to stretch…

    All Jalin Marshall had to do was make a simple move and he would have made a play Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has said multiple times he's capable of making. Unfortunately for Marshall, he didn't make that move. He got tackled by the punter on a would-be touchdown on a punt return, causing the redshirt freshman to take some heat from his teammates and coaches. "Oh, I was giving Dontre (Wilson), Jalin and Curtis Samuel a hard time. They got caught today, each one of them, so they'll — one guy got caught by a punter, I think, and so we'll give those guys a hard time," Meyer said after…

Ramzy: Urban said Ohio State wasn't ready to play Virginia Tech the week of the game and well hahahaha he was right. The entire passing game plan was predicated on Barrett having time to find open targets and hit them while the defense dared the Hokies to find the hole in the defense on 3rd down.

    “You live in a cubbyhole, drive to work, and sit in dark rooms all day long,” is one way Urban Meyer likes to playfully deflect and plead ignorance to questions that aren't about football.  Ask Meyer about something larger than Xs and Os — something other than fly routes, routes, gap schemes or the spread option — and he’ll say he’s just a college football coach whose life just revolves around sitting in front of projector screens and just toiling away studying opposing defenses for hours and hours. In the more than two years since Meyer took over Ohio State, lines like that…

    Racism is alive and well (and disgusting).  Yes, we all should be able to see that.  That isn't news. Is Bruce Levenson a racist?  Is there a lesson there? The better lesson may be that Bruce Levenson let fear (albeit racially-based) and ignorance drive his business decisions. He and the NBA lost millions of dollars in Atlanta and drove a potentially valuable brand, the Atlanta Hawks, into the ground. It appears he is most guilty of being an ignorant, horrible business man. How did he do that? Very simply, he failed in some extremely basic ways.  He forgot some…

    Tweet Today’s post is a very short one with one very specific piece of advice for teams. While I know that sponsors pay a lot of money for logo placement all across your press conference backdrop, there are times when logic would dictate use of a team-only branded background. This is especially true when dealing with controversial issues, as we saw this week with Radisson and the Vikings regarding the Adrian Peterson abuse charges. I don’t know if Radisson would have stayed a sponsor if their logo wasn’t featured prominently during this, but it certainly didn’t…

    13 Sep 2014 | 8:51 pm
    With the rise in recognition of digital currency, there can become the necessity to ensure all those coins are retained securely. The coins themselves are normally safe, even so, the genuine hazard to the wallet is the theft of a private key, or a password to obtain the private key. A wonderful way to retain coins protected is by utilizing “cold storage” to hold the private keys out of the reach of any person looking to get a hold of them. A bitcoin paper wallet is a public and private key for an address that is physically produced. By obtaining the physical object, there is hardly any…
  • Florida Gators – Tennessee Vols, A Brief History

    In recent memory, the third game of the season in the SEC means the first fight for the SEC East lead.  Granted, the past several years have not been kind to Derek Dooley’s UT Vols, but the Orange and White have high hopes. On the other side line, first year Gators coach Will Muschamp fully realizes the importance of this game. Both teams are currently sitting at 2-0 and neither have played anyone of appreciable ability.  That all changes this weekend as the Vols travel to The Swamp to take on their SEC East nemesis, the Florida Gators. I believe in history.  So, what does the series…

  • True Happiness

    Emily Brown
    17 Sep 2014 | 7:36 pm
    Living in a materialistic world, it’s not uncommon to hear people joke that happiness is when you are rich. That would make sense, right? Especially if you consider that some people buy things to make themselves happy and in order to buy things you need money. So lots of money = lots of happiness. If that theory is correct, how come there are so many rich people who are unhappy? Sure, money can allow us to buy many things and even win friends and pay for surgery to make us look younger on the outside, but it doesn’t buy good health which is a key element of an optimal lifestyle.

    The boys get ready for West Ham It’s not time to panic quite yet. As unnerving as last weekends 1-0 reversal at the hands of Aston Villa was, it’s easy to forget that it’s still early days. This time last season, as pointed out by Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, we were still trying to find our stride. The personal may have changed somewhat, but we’re very much in the same pattern at this stage last year. Saying we needed to get back on track or other such clichés after the loss to Manchester City at the end of August was a bit premature; approaching the end of…

Backing the striker to continue his good run of form this weekend when the Reds take on West Ham United could be a sound investment with a recent William Hill Q&A revealed that one punter scooped up €683,739 from a…

    The Utes are headed to the “Big House” for a Saturday showdown with the Michigan Wolverines. Coming off two spectacular victories this season, the Wolverines will be the Utes first true test to determine just how good they really are. Road wins have been hard to come by for the Utes and it doesn’t get any easier this weekend. Here are my 4 Keys to beating the Wolverines: 1.

    Week 4: BYU vs Virginia BYU gets their chance at redemption this Saturday afternoon when Virginia comes to Provo to take on the Cougars. The Virginia game last season was a huge let down. BYU coaches and players had touted their new “Go Fast, Go Hard” offense all summer and things fell flat with an 0-1 start. Much like we say that Texas was looking at a redemption game against BYU this season, we have had this Virginia game circled since the end of the first game last season. Another important note is that many voters will be keeping an eye on this game to use as a gauge to measure BYU…

    Utah Utes Football As I sat on my couch last night mindlessly enjoying “The Drive” on the Pac12 Network and my two boys tirelessly destroying everything around me, I couldn’t help but notice that UCLA’s offensive line seemed a little bit skinny for a Power 5 college football team. This prompted me to tweet out how they compared to the rest of the Pac – a question for which I received no answers from the folks out there in twitter land. Hence, I took it upon myself to find out… What I found is that I was indeed correct; UCLA averages the lightest starting offensive line in the Pac…
  • BYU Football: BYU Beats Houston, Loses Opportunity

    Andrew Kartchner
    12 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    BYU found a way to win against a pesky Houston team, but they may have lost some ground in the eyes of those who matter most: the college football selection committee. A few weeks ago I called BYU’s win over UConn “ugly,” mainly because of the 15 penalties that cost the Cougars 150 yards. But BYU’s game in East Hartford looked flawless compared to their performance Thursday on ESPN. The Cougars committed 12 penalties and coughed up 3 turnovers, allowing Houston to stay in the game despite the Cougars in red going down early, 23-0. Let me be clear: BYU is not a bad…
  • BYU Football: Last Minute BYU vs. Houston Predictions

    Andrew Kartchner
    11 Sep 2014 | 3:20 pm
    Last year’s matchup between the red and blue Cougars of Houston and BYU was as entertaining a football game as they come. In a classic shootout, BYU edged out Houston 47-46, with Taysom Hill going 29 for 44 and 417 yards through the air. Will this year be another shootout? Big Bro: Vegas has BYU as an 18 point favorite, but I am still nervous about this game. Yes, BYU is improved. Yes, Houston lost to UTSA. Yes, BYU creamed Texas in Austin. Yes, it’s at LES. But this early in the season, it’s difficult to tell just how good a team is by one big win or one surprising loss. I…

Gareth Bale’s high profile (and massive money) deal made him the first footballer to break the 100 million Euro mark, but the transfer market is a funny old place, and the fees paid for players doesn’t necessarily represent their true value. 15 Experts have worked together to create this brilliant list and graphic, which scores the players on a multitude of different areas and summises just which are the most valuable in there. Some of the players of course write themselves, it is no surprise to see…
  • The Importance of Football Drills

    11 May 2014 | 8:25 am
    As with any sport, American Football is something that is often started at a very young age, and the importance of getting the hours of practice in is evident for those who really want to make it to the top of the game. Football is a complex sport, and there are many different positions and roles on a pitch which can be tough to get a full understanding of at a young age, but doing the correct drills and spending time practicing the fundamentals of the game can pay dividends. Improving Agility and Strength. The sport demands that you are both strong and agile and you may be using entirely new…

    There was a time where jobs in sports were extremely rare, but in the modern age we live in, sports teams can be huge global brands with requirements for everything from ground staff to marketing staff. The structure of sports clubs mirrors that of many other entertainment industries, there are always people required to ensure that things work technically, so for instance that the stadium is up to scratch and kept safe and functioning, and coaches and more to work with the players. Behind the scenes there is an administrative side to it as well, so if this is where your skills lay then there…

  • Di Maria: “I came to improve under LvG”

    TEAMtalk Media
    19 Sep 2014 | 1:53 am
    LONDON, September 19- Manchester United newcomer Angel Di Maria has revealed a desire to improve his game under Louis Van Gaal as the reason for him moving to Old Trafford. The Argentina international set a new British transfer record when he joined the Red Devils for a staggering £59.7 million fee from Real Madrid during the last transfer window. His sale raised some eyebrows at the Bernabeu, with Di Maria having played a pivotal role for Los Blancos as they claimed a 10th European crown in May when they beat city neighbours Atletico Madrid 4-1 in the UEFA Champions League final. But the…

    LONDON, England, September 19- Chelsea striker Didier Drogba admits he is excited to once again meet up with his “partner in crime” Frank Lampard, even if the two men will be on opposing sides this weekend. Lampard brought his Stamford Bridge career to a close at the end of last season, leaving as the Blues’ all-time record goalscorer, to join new MLS franchise New York City FC, before being loaned to Manchester City for the current campaign. Drogba, meanwhile, enjoyed a highly successful eight years in west London before departing in 2012, but not before handing them the…

    TURIN, Italy, September 19- Juventus defender Patrice Evra says that he ended his eight-year spell at Manchester United because of ‘personal problems’. The French international traded the Red Devils for the Old Lady in July, despite having signed a one-year contract extension with the Manchester outfit in May. While it might have appeared that the £30 million signing of fellow left-back Luke Shaw was the reason behind Evra’s decision to end his association with the Old Trafford club, the 33-year-old says this is not the case. “I was having personal problems at…

Wenger’s side travel to Villa Park to face a Villa side who lie second in the Premier League with three wins from four matches following last weekend’s surprise victory at Liverpool.

Munich boss Pep Guardiola switched from a 3-4-1-2 system to a 4-1-2-3 in the middle of their victory over City, and the moved paid off as Bayern played one of their strongest matches of the season, culminating in Jerome Boateng’s winner in the 90th minute. “We presented ourselves as a unit,” said sports director Matthias Sammer.

  • Week 4 college football preview: Can West Virginia upset Oklahoma in Morgantown?

    J Will
    19 Sep 2014 | 11:11 am
    Week 4 of the college football season offers us the best weekend of games so far. Clemson vs Florida State was first, now let’s talk about #4 Oklahoma Sooners traveling to Morgantown to face the West Virginia Mountaineers. Line: Oklahoma -7.5 What does Oklahoma have to do to win? Offensively, I think the Sooners need to come out and try to take the crowd out of the game from the beginning. Trevor Knight has to be poised and can’t make silly mistakes. I think a good balance of the run and passing game should be the plan against a Mountaineers defense who has given up a lot of…

First up, #22 Clemson Tigers travels to Tallahassee to face #1 Florida State Seminoles. Line: Florida State -14 What does Clemson have to do to win? Offensively, Clemson should try to establish the run for the entire game. Last year, they gave up on the run too early which played into Florida State’s hand. I think Clemson will try to run a lot of jet sweeps to try to spread the Seminoles defense. Cole Stoudt and Deshaun Watson both…

Like the entertainment industry, people very much want to break into the sports field, and as is found with most industries nowadays, internships have become the route people now need to take to get their foot in the proverbial door. So how do you stand out and get yourself noticed? Be more interested than interesting My advice is to be more interested than interesting. What does that mean? It means to delve deep and…

    At first, the experience of youth sports for you and your child starts out innocent and fun.  Unfortunately, it usually doesn’t stay that way. As you are coasting along, enjoying the adventure, be prepared for these pitfalls that may trip you up and turn what should be a good season into a trying experience. Pitfall #1: “My Child is the Best” Even if your child is the strongest player on the team, the my-child-is-the-best mentality can very quickly distort into, “my child is the best, he should always be playing and he deserves an award” mindset. There’s nothing wrong with…

    The season starts to ramp up a bit, with a smattering of intra- and inter-conference match-ups on the schedule. Of course, the Florida State - Clemson game, for a variety of reasons, is the headline game. But there are a few others that intrigue me, including Miami at Nebraska, a surprising Virginia team heading to BYU, Oklahoma at West Virginia and of course the battle of the ACC Techs in Blacksburg.

    A divisional matchup in the NFL and a game between top 20 teams in college will have many of us switching channels to catch all of the action tonight. Of course, there's always the DVR if you're adept at avoiding scores of the game you want to watch later. I say watch the NFL on CBS, since they're less likely to show the score of the college game as frequently. I use a strip of painter's tape on the bottom of my screen to cover any scores that run across there, especially on ESPN.

Criticism is being hurled at everyone from Rice himself to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome and even at the victim.This story is getting more airtime than anything happening in Washington, which is ludicrous considering it's one jerk beating on his then girlfriend, now wife, and ultimately getting what he deserves.

    Playing the position of receiver requires skills such as good hand-eye coordination, great balance, explosive lower body strength, good agility, and great athleticism just to name a few. One of the most important fundamentals that will help take any receiver to another level is the ability to get off the line of scrimmage against a man defender. Here’s a link to 22 minute teaching video for receivers to get off of press coverage.  At the youth or high school level you don’t often encounter man coverage, however, learning how to get off the line of scrimmage versus a man defender is a…

    Teaching an offensive line to work together is the most vital part to the success of an offense. From pass blocking to picking up a blitzing defensive player, a lineman must be ready to help his fellow teammate. One key fundamental which I feel should be taught is the double team. This can be done between the center and guard, guard and tackle, as well as tackle and TE. In my opinion the double team starts from the split between the lineman. If the lineman are too far apart, it will take too long for them to work together. By the time they do get to a position where they can function as one,…

    With several races coming up, I thought I would share my thoughts on the benefits of having people there to support you at a race.  One of the things that makes big races fun is the vast amount of spectators.  The masses of people bring huge amounts of energy to a course. I definitely loved the spectators this year at Boston, they were excited and they were loud.  However, if I had to pick a marathon I have done that I would say had my favorite crowd, I would pick Chicago without a doubt.  There was literally not a moment on the course when there weren’t rows and rows of people. …

    “All of our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.”  -Walt Disney This past week I was on a work trip to Orlando. So of course, I brought along my new Brooks Glycerin’s! I love the experience of running in different cities. The runs in Orlando were quite different than my last work trip to Philly in February. There I got to have a beautiful run in the snow. (Real snow, not ice by the way). I have to say that the humidity in Orlando, wow, it was beyond humid. I would refer to it as swampy.  (Note to self, don’t do Disney World with the kids…
  • Brooks Glycerin 12 Review

    15 Aug 2014 | 3:01 pm
    If you have followed my blogs at all, then you know I am a long time Saucony  loyalist.  It takes a lot for me to choose another brand over Saucony.  Maybe I am a creature of habit, but I have always had success with them. Second in line of my favorites I would say is definitely Brooks. I have had a few pairs of the Ghost and the Glycerin through the years.  A few months ago I bought both a pair of Saucony Triumphs and a pair of Brooks Glycerin. Both are great shoes with a lot of cushioning.  They are top of the line for both brands, and worth every penny. My issue with the last…

  • Silas Redd: Washington Redskins Mr. Irony

    Lake Lewis Jr
    18 Sep 2014 | 4:22 pm
    Ashburn, Va. – For Washington Redskins’ running back Silas Redd, the past two years have been ones filled with subplots and ironies. Redd was once the future star-in-waiting at Penn State University. Blair Thomas, who is considered by many as the greatest back in the history of Penn State Football (former Redskins running back Evan Royster is the school’s all-time leading rusher) said that: “Silas was going to be the best back ever to come out of  Happy Valley had he not transferred to Southern California.” But the young man ended up transferring to the University of…

    Redskins RB Alfred Morris needs to have a good game versus the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Ashburn, Va. – Until the Washington Redskins can return the whupping they received at the hands of NFC-East-Division-rival Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, any game against this team is going to be must-win. In the first Monday Night Football game of the 2013 season, the Eagles surprised the NFL world with then-brand-new head coach Chip Kelly’s high-octane offense when they came to town and beat Washington 33-27 (the score was not indicative of how badly they beat the Redskins). The second time…
  • Penn State: Report Card vs. Rutgers

    17 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
      By Quintus McDonald Last week’s report card on the Nittany Lions’ game versus the Akron Zips was consistency. This week it became evident early in the first quarter that Rutgers University was determined to make a statement to not only Penn State, but to the Big Ten Conference and college football as a whole. But PSU made a statement themselves when they beat the Scarlet Knights 13-10 and that is that they are resilient. Both teams were very well prepared. Going into the game, it was obvious that the difference maker could easily be the athletic defensive front of…
  • Despite Injuries, Redskins Put on Show vs. Jaguars

    Lake Lewis Jr
    15 Sep 2014 | 9:04 pm
    The beautiful blue skies that welcomed in the Washington Redskins’ home opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars would be a prelude for a day that saw every human emotion possible. Optimism would start the day as Redskins starting quarterback Robert Griffin, III would quickly make his mark by running to the right for a 12-yard gain from the shotgun formation.  The resulting play showed that he could still beat teams with his elusive rushing abilities. Two plays later Griffin would find wide out DeSean Jackson on a nicely thrown deep ball, showing that he could beat teams with his arm…
  • PSU vs. Rutgers: Rivalry or Border War?

    15 Sep 2014 | 6:02 am
    By Quintus McDonald The opening Big Ten Conference game between Penn State and Rutgers Universities this past Saturday marked the beginning of a rivalry. That game — which Penn State won 13-10 — was a more natural fit than the Penn State vs. Ohio State rivalry that has been in existence since PSU’s entry into the Big Ten. The fact of the matter is that routinely, Rutgers has been on the schedule as a home game for Penn State… typically late in the season. Many things could be suggested about the meeting of the two teams, one of which is that the New Jersey college…

Buckeyes are also still considered one of the contenders for the top spot in the game despite their loss to Virginia Tech last week. The Kent state Golden Flashes on the other had, have had a pretty good run in the past but don’t play the level of competition or recruit the level of player that the Buckeyes do.

    Brutus in Austin, TX before a football game against the Texas Longhorns (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The Go Buckeyes commercial still cracks me up. Remember the one where this couple is introducing themselves (the woman is driving) to each other. It becomes apparent that they are actually on a blind date and the guy jumps out of the car because the woman, while introducing herself, chants the rival college football team's slogan. Not only does he jump out of a moving car he yells back GO BUCKEYES loud enough. Come to think of it why would someone go through such extremes for football. Well, if…

Watching the Midshipmen brigade go marching out onto the field there in Baltimore is indeed a spectacle. Then you have the sing-along by all the players as well as the Ohio State/Navy alma maters, followed by handshakes. Now all the emotional trappings of the game have ended.

    High School Illustrated
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:24 pm
    Strength training is a vital part of a balanced exercise routine that includes aerobic activity and flexibility exercises. Regular aerobic exercise, such as running or using a stationary bike, makes your muscles use oxygen more efficiently and strengthens your heart and lungs. When you strength train with weights, you’re using your muscles to work against the extra pounds (this concept is called resistance). This strengthens and increases the amount of muscle mass in your body by making your muscles work harder than they’re used to. Most people who work out with weights typically…

    Many college students realize they weren’t realistic about college. Some expect to find it hard living away from home, not only in terms of missing family but also in dealing with practical stuff like washing your own clothes. If anticipated, these issues can be less stressful. Living away from home tends to be the toughest adjustment for first-year students. You’ve had a clear role within your family all of your life: the family comedian, the mediator, maybe the translator. These roles can help you feel like you belong somewhere.

    19 Sep 2014 | 12:30 pm
    It was another crazy week in the NFL with more off-the field issues. There are great story lines on the field, but the discussion continues to surround much bigger issues. The one word I want to bring up today is blame. Unfortunately, blame creeps into many conversations: from athletes in trouble…to the NFL…to owners…to coaches…to fans. You and I also do our fair share of placing blame on others. We blame our parents, our circumstances, the government, our boss, the waiter, the person driving in front of us…and sadly we even blame God. The blame game actually started with Adam…

In fact, the Patriots are the only team in the division sitting there at 0-1. In perhaps the biggest surprise in week one the Miami Dolphins dominated the perennial division champs in the second half en route to a 33-20 victory. If that victory was not the upset of the week, than the distinction should belong to the Buffalo Bills who stunned many with a 23-20 overtime…

In 2013 they still only win 74 games but things are more promising; they might have won 4-5 if not for month-long injuries to their trio of offensive stars: Michael Cuddyer, Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. The pitching looks much less terrible, as Joulys Chacin and Jorge de la Rosa lead a rebound performance. Still, the team has plenty of holes.Winter…

    25 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Short and sweet. Here are 11 phrases successful athletes never say one game day (and probably not on any other day either)… Successful athletes don’t look for something to blame. They look and their performance, think about how they can do better next time, and work on it.  They don’t stay focused on the “coulda, woulda, shouldas.” No matter what, they want to do their best and help their team in any way they can, no matter what that may entail, no matter who is “supposed” to do it or not. Successful athletes LOVE a challenge and WANT the ball. They…
  • Twitter is not a recruiting nightmare, poor choices are

    I shared my thoughts on social media before. This topic came up again when I saw this headline in my Facebook Newsfeed… Georgia coach Mark Richt dropped a recruit because of his tweetsUnder that it said, “Twitter is a recruiting nightmare.” I disagree. Twitter is just a tool, just a platform through which people can communicate. HOW YOU CHOOSE TO USE IT however, can cause problems for you if you make bad choices. The bottom line is, YOUR choices affect opportunities you receive and ones you get taken away from you. Don’t blame the tool. This very same tool can HELP you…

I let her know I was happy she out works and out trains a lot of her teammates, BUT… I encouraged her to not get complacent with that, to aim higher. After all, in competition, the only people it matters to “outdo” are your opponents! Out working your teammates is great, but you’re not fighting against them in competition. I’m happy to say, she understood exactly what I was taking about The same is true for performance. It’s awesome if you’re the best on your team or in your league or even…

She played for a high school that JUST started their softball program. She wasn’t spectacular pitching wise. She did enough to keep her team in the game and stop any “big shots” from hurting her team. In short, she did a decent job as a pitcher. She was pitching outs. The only problem? Her team made error after error after error around her. Still, her demeanor, how she carried herself, how she…

  • 2014-15 NHL Playoff Odds

    David Solar
    19 Sep 2014 | 12:42 pm
    With the NFL season underway, most other sports are forced to take a backseat in the hearts and minds of bettors. Perhaps that’s what has allowed the NHL season to creep up with the stealth and silence of a serial killer in a horror movie. Although it seems as though the NHL season ended quite recently, pre-season action actually begins this Sunday (9/21) with the regular season opening play on October 8th. Throughout the off-season we’ve written about Stanley Cup Futures, Divisional Odds and Point Totals, but just this week one of the more public sportsbooks posted the NHL…
  • Betting Late Season MLB Overs at Coors Field

    David Solar
    19 Sep 2014 | 11:20 am
    For years Coors Field in Colorado has been notorious for being a hitter-friendly ballpark. These days it’s a rarity that we see the Colorado Rockies play a home game in which the total is less than 10 — an extreme anomaly considering that totals across baseball have been dropping. The main reason behind these high-scoring games and large totals is the thin air in the mile-high city. Higher altitudes lead to lower air density which has tremendous impact on both batted balls and pitched balls. Due to the reduced drag, balls travel significantly farther at Coors Field. In fact,…
  • NCAAF Betting Trends: Well Rested Teams Against Ranked Opponents

    In the past we’ve detailed how the Top 25 rankings are typically an inaccurate representation of the College Football landscape, and how sharp bettors are able to exploit the public’s perception of rankings. The truth is that oddsmakers actually watch far more football than the average Associated Press voter and have a much better gauge on the talent of each team. I’ve always been of the belief that the general public places unrealistic expectations on these youngsters. We treat these players like rock stars, when many of them are still just kids who are unaccustomed to…

    I was not lucky with getting this upgrade. The very next day after I ordered it, Clever Training reduced the Fenix 2 price by $100. It was stopped for customs clearance and I needed to pay duty on it (first time!) and had to chase post office to give me informations about the state of delivery multiple times. Few days before North Shore Marathon it arrived. And it was worth waiting for!

    15 Sep 2014 | 6:56 pm “Time is not a coach’s friend.” These words from former NFL and NCAA coach Charles Coiner capture the dilemma faced by many football coaches every day. For most coaches, the biggest challenge is coming up with good strategic plays that will work year after year, while still finding time to actually train and develop players under their charge. This is a problem faced by both pros and amateur coaches, but more so by those who work as part-time coaches in the high school, small-college, and youth-league ranks. How it all began Back in 2011 when Coiner was taking a…

    3 Aug 2014 | 9:46 am It all started with a simple idea back in 1996: to make a superior t-shirt for athletes. Under Armour founder Kevin Plank, a former football player for the University of Maryland, worked in his grandmother’s basement in Washington, D.C. and traveled up and down the country selling his revolutionary new product out of the trunk of his car. Now almost two decades later and seemingly out of nowhere, Under Armour has managed to break into the top ranks of the sports apparel industry. Its sales have steadily increased, totaling $2.33 billion last year. How did it…

    Being the most popular sport in the entire world, it’s probably impossible for football not to have any sort of artistic offshoot. Freestyle football is certainly such. Since its emergence in the early 1900s, it has developed into an elaborate art through which people are able to express themselves. From a simple game where one performs various tricks with a football using different parts of the body, it has become a widespread sport and is currently being practiced by thousands of trained professionals the world over.

    Yesterday, I noted that Jameis Winston needed guidance.  Today, Winston was punished.  He will sit out the first half of the Clemson game.  If that is all we get out of this, it will be disappointing.  Indeed, I disagree with this approach, both as it relates to Winston and as it relates to everyone else. First, Winston deserves a punishment.  That is not a debate.  But we always do the easy thing in society.  If something is broken, throw money  at the problem (see Government).  If someone breaks the law, throw them in jail.  If someone violates social norms, ban them from his or…

    The North Carolina football team may have had last week off, but they certainly didn’t have any time to rest. After two underwhelming victories against motivated, but overmatched opponents, the Tar Heels had a lot of work to do. Despite being 2-0, the season was already heading in the wrong direction without significant changes in a number of different areas. Poor tackling and a stagnant running game were two of the biggest problems, but that’s only scratching the surface. This week it’s back to business, and things are about to heat up pretty quickly. Four games in four…

    The Detroit Hustle -- Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings and sometimes Pistons musings

  • An attempt to explain the unfathomable Joe Nathan 9th-inning experience

    17 Sep 2014 | 8:29 am — nick pants (@nick_pants) September 17, 2014 Joe Nathan was good. Then he moved 1,200 miles away and he wasn’t. First the blown saves came as an aberration, then they arrived as a symptom of a dead arm. Eventually they arrived simply because they had before. At its most basic, baseball is a child monitoring device. Nine players stand in the field, in easy view. Parents have a finite number of kids to watch at one time. The rest are safe in what most of the time is a chain-link cage. The plus is crowd control. The minus is downtime for the kids. When…

    He was a two-star recruit. He went to a faraway land and molded himself into a fourth-round draft pick. When he came to training camp he was still mystery for Lions coaches to solve when they had more time. In the meantime he could cover kicks. Then Detroit cut the only reliable player it had in the secondary. Free agent signing James Ihedigbo injured his neck. Perennial backup Don Carey hurt his hamstring.  Bill Bentley’s knee exploded after three plays. The Lions had no replacements to plug in or safeties to slide over.

    New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford announced on Saturday the launch of his new philanthropic organization, The Steve Weatherford World Champion Foundation at Momentum Cycling and Fitness Studio in Momentum, NJ. He pulled up to Momentum with a group of very excited fans awaiting his arrival. He got out of the car and immediately went up and gave high fives all around. Then he asked the kids if they always did their homework, to which they all unanimously screamed “Yes!” He asks, ok so who can tell me what 11×4 is? A little boy yells 44!

    Each football season, there’s the risk that goes through each football player’s mind: the risk of an injury that could prevent playing time. For New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford, this risk recently became very real. Weatherford tore four ligaments in his ankle, an injury that is detrimental to his position.  Dr. Tehrany, of Manhattan Orthopedic Care, used his expertise to comment on Weatherford’s injury: “Weatherford’s injury seems mild based on the way he injured the ankle. Unfortunately, the MRI scan is not 100% accurate in cases of torn ligaments. The initial…

    Seems the skies are starting to clear around MSG for the New York Knicks. Newly appointed head of basketball operations Phil Jackson has already made major changes to the Knicks organization that left much to be desired last year. Coaching Change: Mike Woodson was the first change that needed to happen to change the culture in the Knicks locker room. Once Woodson was fired, Phil Jackson turned to Derek Fisher to coach the Knicks with a knowledge of Jackson’s “triangle offense” and years playing for Jackson when he was coach in LA – it will make sure there is no…

  • 11 Ways to Reduce Salt in Your Diet

    17 Sep 2014 | 11:36 am
    Photo by  Kiersten Koenig by Otesa Miles Sodium, which is necessary for the body, can cause great harm when consumed in excess. Found in table salt, foods, drinks and even medicines and supplements, too much sodium is a key factor in high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to kidney disease, heart disease and stroke. To decrease salt intake, here are a few tips: Reduce or, if possible, eliminate pre packaged foods. Microwave meals and convenient lunch boxes contain large amounts of sodium. Cut out cans. Canned foods usually are chock full of sodium, which adds flavor and acts as a…
  • Too Much Salt is a Health Violation

    10 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Photo by Kiersten Koenig By Otesa Miles Keeping young bodies basketball ready involves tons of physical activity, plus lots of healthy foods. Unfortunately, a 2012 study in the journal “Pediatrics” found that many children and teens consume too much salt or sodium which increases their risk of having high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to a range of heart diseases. Young people should consume no more than 1,500 to 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily. In fact, less is better. Many people think excess salt comes from the salt shaker. However, the main culprit is prepared and…

We make a big deal about whether to use Nightforce Beast 5.5-22×56 MOAR and how to mount it on the firearms but we conveniently overlook this cheap and easily available accessory which is so important for the shoulder-fired weapons.

As far as I am concerned a comparison between Schmidt Bender Short Dot and Elcan Specterdr scopes are not feasible.

At this time last year, the Jets found themselves debating on who should start: current QB at the time Mark Sanchez or the more athletic and raw Geno Smith.

They are stout against the run and can put immense pressure on opposing quarterbacks in passing situations. Last season their weakness was in the secondary, but this unit is improved as well. The addition of Louisville Cardinal safety Calvin Pryor, along with the emergence of the recently injured Dee Milliner has this group headed in a direction to test the rest of the AFC East.

Swansea City, though, is a football Cinderella.Swansea City was founded in 1912 as Swansea Town. It hovered in the middling leagues of the English sport for much of the century. But in the 1960s, the team tumbled down the ranks, eventually requiring a financial rescue package and High Court approval just to survive. In 2001, it was sold — for a…

During last year’s playoffs alone, over the course of three successive games they shut down New Orleans’ star tight end Jimmy Graham, short-circuited San Francisco’s entire passing game, and humiliated Denver’s Peyton Manning (arguably the best quarterback ever). But on Sunday, the “Legion of Boom” had no answers for San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, who caught three touchdown passes in an upset victory over the defending Super Bowl champs.Seattle shouldn’t feel too bad, though.

  • Has Expanded Replay Worked Well In Baseball? Here’s Our Call

    Oliver Roeder
    12 Sep 2014 | 9:59 am
    Early this year, Major League Baseball introduced dramatically expanded instant replay rules. With a few exceptions — notably, balls and strikes — managers can challenge any umpire’s call on the field.“This is really big,” Commissioner Bud Selig said at the time.Selig and other MLB officials made positive predictions about the benefits of expanded replay, promising it wouldn’t “disturb the game.” Also, managers would have power over calls, and bad calls would be made right. Finally, officials suggested an increased strategic component to the game: As with calling in a…

    FRIDAY NIGHT AL CENTRAL SUPERSLAM UPSET PICK Detroit Tigers (+104) @ Kansas City Royals Miguel Cabrera may be a lot of things but he ain't no god damn loser.  The Tigers have 10 games left in their season and they sit .5 games ahead of Kansas City in the AL Central Division. Why do teams pay super stars the big dollars? To win the big games. Miguel Cabrera is arguably the greatest hitter of all time. Yeah sure, the washed up has been of a pitcher we know as Verlander is on the mound tonight; but that doesn't change the fact that Miggy is teeing off in KC. In Minnesota, Detroit…

    Thursday Night FootballTampa Bay (+6) at Atlanta (UNDER 46)The Buccaneers, by all accounts, should get blown out tonight. No Gerald McCoy and no Mason Foster makes an already shaky Bucs defense look like a prime candidate for a Matty IceNutz 5 TD game! Let's remember, this is a Thursday night game. I almost liken these games to Thursday night at the local club or bar. Yeah the environment and excitement is the same, but you're not 100% into it, hell, you may still be recovering from the previous weekend! So what do you end up with when you have a Thursday game/night out? Some sloppy play and…

On his personal website, he states placing 2nd at the Stadion Classic on the Tour was his most memorable moment in his golfing career.1 Oh, how things have changed.

    Over the last decade, the NFL has gone from a league centered around the run game to one that revolves around airing it out. With that change of pace to the sport, the wide receiver position has become the prime position. The guys that we have seen playing there over the years have been the most athletic guys on the field, making electric plays. Guys like Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant and AJ Green have revolutionized the game. With the pass game becoming so popular, teams have used the short and intermediate pass game to set up the long throws. This system has also given the more diminutive…

    It is more likely that a team in the NFL will go from worst to first and vice versa in the span of one season than any other major sport. But even with such parity, the early results of the 2014 regular season are shocking. Among the most surprising developments is the early fall of the New Orleans Saints, who beat the Eagles in the playoffs last year to make it to the divisional round, and the sole lead of the AFC East by the Buffalo Bills, who finished in last place in their division last season. What changed in the seventh months of the offseason that would result in such a turnaround? And…

Domestic violence is the big issue right now (as I’m sure all of you are far too aware of). Plenty has been written on that subject, so I’ll refrain from delving too much into that situation, but what we do now know is that the league is hiring four female advisors to attempt to change outside perception of how it handles situations and hopefully do some good internally as well.

Take for example when Ted Nolan was coach of the New York Islanders and he asked the team owner to bring back Al Arbour to coach one more game because statistically Coach Arbour was at 1499 games. It was set up for Al Arbour to come back behind the bench with Coach Nolan. Arbour was to be honored for helping architect four in a row Stanley Cup winning Islander teams and to reach the 1500 games coached plateau.No, the Sabres have not won any cups. They came close twice, but both those teams did not quite have enough to make it over the top. In the…

Spiller back to receive the kick. I have stated my feelings on this being absolutely ridiculous and here we go again in our opener.  The ball goes out of bounds in the end zone.

However, lucky for Ray Rice he’s not going to be completely unemployed after Mike Tyson saw the video! “Did you see that left-hook?” Tyson exclaimed to us, “He’s destine to be a boxer!” Shortly after our interview with Mr. Tyson, he announced that Ray Rice will be a playable character in his next Punch-out game if you pre-order the game from select retailers.

  • Report: Cousins admits to injuring RGIII

    17 Sep 2014 | 8:06 am
    Breaking news into the UPFL that Kirk Cousins has admitted to purposefully injuring RGIII and wishing for a season ending injury. An official statement from Cousins reps says: “ Kirk was fed up of benchwarming for a QB that is far less talented than him. Friday night, my client snuck onto FedEX Field and dug pot holes all over the field, hoping RGIII would trip in one. My client was overjoyed when he saw RGIII dislocate his ankle and be sidelined for several weeks.” While this might not have been the best way to go about this, it’s hard to argue with the results. The Redskins went from…

    United States 129, Serbia(?) 92 During the past few weeks, the United States has apparently been facing off against the best of the rest of the world during something called the FIBA Basketball World Cup. This tournament, according to Google, happens every four years, two years between the Summer Olympics. Google further explained that this is the second time in a row we’ve won this competition, which is pretty cool. In what the highlights suggested was a dominating effort on both offense and defense, the United States finished a tournament sweep while winning every game by more than 20…

The short-fused and psychologically conflicted Orton aggressively attacked ‘The Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rollah’ in the locker room in a premeditated onslaught on the basis of Jericho’s snide comments of success being handed to the talented St. Louis-born WWE Superstar throughout his career.Randy Orton aims to prove…

    On Wednesday Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested for domestic violence. Dwyer is just another player from the NFL to find himself involved in another toxic incident. Earlier today details were few and far between, with some sources even stating that Dwyer was only questioned not arrested. What we do know currently is that the arrest stem from two incidents that occurred in July of this year. The details of what went down are still sketchy, but the victims in the case have been listed as a  27-year old female and an 18-month old child, presumably his wife and child.

    Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena may seem like a strange venue for a collosal ice hockey grudge match. And it was fairly safe to say that no-one in the crowd was expecting Gretzky, Federov or Lemieux to be turning out either. In fact a Kane, Quick or Boychuck would have sufficed; instead we got to experience the talents of Zenon Konopka, Emerson Etem, Tyler Bunz and Andrew Gordon (a late replacement for the world renown Kyle Quincey). When I heard the line-ups for the two teams those immortal lines from Major League were ringing through my ears – “Not bad for a couple of…

  • Danny Welbeck vs Radamel Falcao

    Ismail N
    12 Sep 2014 | 1:11 am
    By selling Danny Welbeck to direct rival, Arsenal, Louis Van Gaal has certainly put his reputation on the line. Both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wengner seem to think that the England striker is a quality player. Sir Alex even choose Welbeck ahead of Wayne Rooney during their Champion League match against Real Madrid a couple of years ago. Van Gaal however, has a different opinion about Welbeck. The Dutchman decided that Welbeck is not good enough for United and happy to let him go for just £16 million. Many fans don’t think it a wise idea. Just £16 million to a direct rival?

    So the Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) has finally pushed the panic button and decided to replace ‘under fire‘ head coach, K. Dharmaraj with Project 2016 coach, A. Arulselvaraj, albeit the appointment is just an interim measure. The face-saving move with Dharmaraj as a “scapegoat” to me is an act of cowardice, designed to appease the fans after a disastrous World Cup campaign and shameful performances at the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It would have been better for the MHC to stick by their man for at least another year after they decided to give…

Their first match at the tournament saw the Matadors stun #22 University of Alabama Birmingham by a score of 2-0. They followed it up with a 2-1 win over the tournament hosts, Tulsa. The common thread in Northridge’s first four matches is that senior striker Sagi Lev-Ari scored in each of them. CSU Northridge has risen up…

    15 Sep 2014 | 9:42 pm
    Daley Blind highlighted the burgeoning team spirit at Manchester United and the honesty of Louis van Gaal as the elements behind the feel-good factor sweeping back into Old Trafford.

  • Arsenal News: Mathieu Debuchy out for 3 months?

    14 Sep 2014 | 11:27 pm
    Various reports indicate Arsenal’s French fullback Mathieu Debuchy could be out for up to three months due to an injury sustained in Gunners’ draw against Manchester City at the Emirates. If the reports are true, Debuchy could be out of action for Arsenal until the start of New Year.

It leaves Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger with a headache who has just six senior defenders in his entire squad. England International Calum Chambers can provide his presence at RB (which…

Overeem is looking to recover after going 1-3 in his last four fights, with his last bout being a quick loss to Ben Rothwell at Fight Night Foxwoods.

  • Adrian Peterson Suspended Indefinitely

    Bobby Bernstein
    17 Sep 2014 | 5:42 am
    My, my, my how the tide has changed, as the Minnesota Vikings have suspended star running back Adrian Peterson, placing him on the exempt/commissioner’s permission list following accusations of child abuse. This means that Peterson won’t be allowed to partake in any team activities or be around the team at all, “allowing him to take care of his personal situation until the legal proceedings are resolved.” The exempt/commissioner’s permission list has been used very loosely in the past, and plays the role of a sort of catch-all for NFL players with other stuff…

    You might as well go ahead and add Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush to the list of NFL monsters you don’t want to see on the field, as he made some disturbing comments about disciplining his one-year-old on WFAN’s “Boomer and Carton.” Obviously, the big topic of the week in the NFL is Adrian Peterson‘s child abuse allegations, and of course Bush weighed in on his own parenting habits…and it was probably a bad idea. Here’s what he had to say: “I most definitely discipline my daughter,” he said on WFAN. “I have a 1-year-old daughter, and I…
  • Rihanna Song Pulled From Thursday Night Football

    Bobby Bernstein
    16 Sep 2014 | 6:48 am
    In quite a strange and unnecessary fashion, Roger Goodell and the NFL decided to pull a new, dramatic introduction to Thursday Night Football that features a Rihanna song, “Run This Town,” with Don Cheadle narrating over it. And while the NFL has yet to give an official reason as to why this was done, we all know why: because Rihanna was a victim of domestic violence years ago at the hands of fellow R&B singer Chris Brown. Naturally, Rihanna is angry and took her rage to Twitter. CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, Fuck you!
