Is there any possible way I can get a do over?
Although Lindsey Smith, Jake Adams and I have remained close in the three-plus years since I left Pennsylvania, it’s still hard to get a sense of what’s going on for them on a day-to-day basis.
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…
Last season the NFL experimented with a new rule that allowed coaches or referees the opportunity to review offensive or defensive pass interference.
Several years ago, I brought to your attention a number of momentous sporting events that took place on Memorial Day. Given the current environment, this seems like a perfect time to again reflect upon the glories of the past.
If you have already listened to last week’s episode of Inside the Lines Podcast, you already know my thoughts on high school athletes returning to practice June 1. I am craving the return of sports as much as everyone else but I have to admit I’m a little worried an early return during the t…

Spring football was canceled, but the “transfer portal” (insert cool sound effect) is still functioning at maximum capacity. Hundreds of student-athletes have already or will soon find a new home and suit up for a different team in 2020.
Every Alabama fan old enough to have used a rotary phone remembers the 1992 season. the stifling defense, Derrick Lassic, Gene Stalling’s coat (although that was the same for every year he coached) were all integral threads in a rich tapestry of perfection.
My brother and I had an opportunity to ride over to Atlanta to watch Auburn take on Tennessee in the Georgia Dome in 2004. My brother-in-law was able to finagle some tickets (thank you Chris Champion) and it still ranks in my top 10 games ever attended.
Without any live action sporting events to actually cover, I’ve found a new competitive spirit and it’s available every day at my home. My dogs have discovered wrestling, track and field and maybe even a little baseball during our stay-at-home quarantine.
The NFL kicked off its annual draft last week with the first round of seven beginning last Thursday then continuing through Saturday.
There has always been a fine line for athletes and coaches to walk and many of us can’t understand it. The line between being tough and risking safety is something all of them deal with on a regular basis.
Not every game in this weekly trip down memory lane of great Alabama games I have personally attended will be meaningful in deciding the SEC champion. That statement is definitely in full effect when discussing the ’Bama versus LSU game of 1998 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The NBA and the NCAA have seemingly worked together over the years to benefit each other from increased ticket sales to elite talent to high TV ratings. Each league has seen some positive impact from whatever rule changes happen between the levels of men’s basketball.
After months of anticipation, ESPN aired the first two episodes of “The Last Dance” on Sunday night, premiering the long-awaited documentary on Michael Jordan’s life and playing career. Basketball fans have gone a month without watching a game so everyone was hungry to tune in and the number…
An odd thing happened last week in the midst of all the sports stories detailing and lamenting how there are no sports stories to talk about. An actual, real-life event occurred that was timely and absolutely related to athletics.
In continuation of our series about the greatest games I have ever attended in person, this week I’m going back to 2004 when No. 14 Auburn defeated No. 5 LSU, 10-9.
All week I have been seeing posts from baseball and softball accounts across social media as teams are looking to honor their seniors on days that would have marked their final regular-season home games. I even saw one senior’s family set up an entire Senior Night celebration in its front ya…
America’s Team is far from the dream owner and general manager Jerry Jones wants for the storied franchise. Just four years removed from their 2016 season where they posted a 13-3 record and proved to be real threats as Super Bowl contenders, the Dallas Cowboys are holding onto what’s left o…
Since content is as scarce as quality toilet paper these days, I had an idea to rehash some of the best Alabama games I ever saw in person. I mean, why not? Right now, all we have are sports memories anyway.
When I heard Luke was putting together a list of the best Alabama games he’d ever been to in person, I had to get in on the fun. Of course, it couldn’t possibly be a good game unless Alabama loses or is that just me?
We often talk a lot about student-athletes needing to be careful about what they post on social media. It’s important for not only their recruiting journeys but also how they are seen by their coaches and communities. There’s no hiding on social media and student-athletes can assume everythi…
