It was a great weekend of football as usual. Here are my quick hits and jukes from this past weekend’s football action.
UCLA vs. Arizona State – Welcome back to the Heisman Trophy conversation Brett Hundley.
Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma State – This game was an old Western shootout and easily the most exciting game of the weekend.
FSU vs. NC State – It’s just something about the Noles playing in Raliegh that always makes for a great game.Read more
Things change and people change. The phone today wasn’t what it was twenty five years ago. It was big bulky and you needed an extension cord longer than Nile River if you wanted to take it from the living room to the bathroom. The person you fell in love with ten years ago is not the same person you’re married to today. They were hot and sexy back then. Now they’re fat, possibly ugly, but they make a great spouse and parent. The cornerback from LSU, Patrick Peterson may or may not be the same Patrick Peterson that plays for the Dallas Cowboys. One thing is for sure, whether he’s the same or not, he needs to evolve. He needs to change, because his career is on the line.Read more
Last week was the first week that the college teams really started to add some flair to their uniforms and thankfully, it continued this week. The NFL did their thing this week also. For some odd reason, everyone was rocking white on Sunday like they were hitting one of Diddy’s all-white parties after the game. Here are freshest, flyest and most spatted up teams and players from last weekend’s football action.Read more
Texas HS football player, Apollos Hester is making national news today. His East View Patriots defeated Vandegrift this past Friday night in a close 42-41 game. Apollos got some TV time and took advantage of it. Take a look at this dope speech.Read more
It was a great weekend of football as usual. I didn’t expect the college games to be as good as they were and you knew the NFL was going to have some gems. Here are my quick hits and jukes from this weekend’s football action.
Auburn vs. Kansas State – It was clear Auburn was the better team. Can we get D’Haquille Williams to be consistent…goodness.
Clemson vs. Florida State – The Noles are a good team…with or without Jameis Winston. Regardless of his lack of maturity, it was a sight to see Jameis Winston being a great teammate on the sidelines.
Oregon vs. Washington State – This was what the ancient football philosophers call a “trap game”.
Florida vs. Alabama – Remember when this game used to be competitive?Read more
College football was in it’s third week and it was pretty eh, but the NFL was in it’s second week and there were a ton of great games. Here are my quick hits and jukes from this weekend’s football action.
Oregon vs. Wyoming – Nope. Didn’t watch a lick of this game.
Southern Miss vs. Alabama – So is Blake Sims the “guy”? I still think Jacob Coker should have the job.
Tennessee vs. Oklahoma - I watched all of this game. Oklahoma is the most complete team in the country but they are certainly not the fastest. They’ve lost a lot of offensive speed. Tennessee is one year away from being a threat to teams’ national championship hopes. And oh yeah, Jalen Hurd is the third best back in the SEC. Todd Gurley and Derrick Henry are the only two backs with more juice. Yes….he’s better than T.J. Yeldon.Read more
Keith Olbermann is arguably the best on air personality in TV, politics, sports, etc included. Why? He’s smart, articulate and most importantly, he has strong opinions. Last night he cooked Roger Goodell on the grill like an Earl Campbell sausage. Olbermann is none to happy with how Roger Goodell has handled the Ray Rice situation. He first lambasted the Commish in early August when Goodell made the decision to only suspend Ray Rice two games for domestic abuse. Then last night, after it was reported that authorities had given the NFL a copy of the elevator footage that shows Ray Rice punching his then fiancee. The NFL says they never received the footage. Someone is lying….the video above shows Olbermann’s thoughts from last night and the video below is from early August. Enjoy.Read more
The old saying goes, if you’re not cheating then you’re not trying. A better saying would be that if you’re not trickin’ on these pros then you’re not scoring. Getting in the end zone in the NFL has never been easy. In a game of size, speed, and strength, sometimes the team with the most “smarts” wins. Here are The 10 Best Trick Plays in NFL History.Read more
Roger Goodell spoke with CBS This Morning Co-Host, Norah O’Donnell yesterday. It was his first interview since the second TMZ Ray Rice video surfaced.Read more
There’s a saying in the NFL that “no player is bigger than the shield.” It sounds like something Roger Goodell would say, especially considering what some of the NFL’s quarterbacks are doing nowadays, but I’m not sure who said it. Whoever said it was wrong. There are players bigger than the shield. People watch the NFL for the superstars. Remember when the NFL went on strike in 1987 and used replacement players? I don’t, I was too young but I heard the football was scarier to watch than Friday the 13th.
Now, when it comes to college football, no player is bigger than the game. The fans, the tradition, the stadiums, the pageantry, and then the players all hold stake in the prodigious entity we call college football.
Have you ever heard anyone say I’d love to go to an Arizona Cardinals game one day? Have you heard anyone outside of Detroit talk about dreaming of one day going to a Detroit Lions game? I bet you have heard someone talking about wanting to go to a University of Michigan football game so that they can see what it’s like to hear the crowd explode after a punt return touchdown. I’ve never heard anyone say they’d love to watch the Indianapolis Colts play in Lucas Oil Stadium, but I’ve heard several people say they want to go to Notre Dame Stadium and revel in the presence of Touchdown Jesus. Even in the NFL, fans don’t feel like they have to watch the best teams in person. In college, it’s different.
You’re not going to a college football game JUST for the players. You’re going for everything that comes with college football. If you plan on taking a tour of college football games or you just happen to be in the area, here are some games, stadiums and rivalries you need to check out this college football season. These are The Best College Football Games Right Now.Read more
