The NFL entered its second week of play this past weekend and unfortunately for fans, there was a multitude of injuries that piled up, potentially ruining the season for some teams.
We were all witnesses 10 years ago when Cam Newton took the sports world by storm. His infectious smile glistened as he torched defenses en route to a 50-touchdown season, eventually winning him the Heisman Memorial trophy. It was one of the most impressive college football seasons in history.
It’s hard enough to predict an entire season of college football with the amount of personnel turnover, unknown development and coaching changes during any given year, but when coronavirus is also thrown in the mix it’s downright impossible. With that being said, these prognostications are r…
Rivalries are the cornerstone of football. It helps bring in money from alumni and fans who want to see their arch enemies fall at the hands of the community they have put so much heart, soul and effort into.
You look for patterns and themes in your daily life, really in the world around you. For as much of a craptastic carnival of that 2020 has become once you parse down through the political rhetoric, the rising coronavirus numbers and deaths, the perpetually offended and the “peaceful protests…

Last week, I broke down in detail the FBI investigation into college basketball that was unveiled nearly three years ago. I appreciate your indulgence in allowing me to carry this over to today.

Whether it’s been obvious or not, I haven’t unveiled my list of greatest games attended in any particular order. I’m sure I could come up with some definitive scale if I had to, but all eight games I’ve talked about so far are incredibly special in their own right.
It is so easy to look around our country — our world, even — and feel overwhelmed with uncertainty, pessimism or downright fear. There have been enough viral outbreaks, dangerous storms and acts of societal unrest to make us all feel apocalyptic.
Last week I talked about the highest scoring “great” game on my list, in which Auburn beat Alabama, 48-45, so it only seems appropriate this week to talk about the lowest scoring “great” game on my list.

Before 2010 BCS championship game gave Alabama its 13th (or eighth or 24th or whatever you want to call it) national championship, the last Crimson Tide team to be crowned was done so Jan. 1, 1993. It was the Nokia Sugar Bowl that year and ’Bama defeated a celebrated and unbelievably arrogan…
