  • ESPN: Look, we re-upped with Tim Tebow, so get off our case

    Human shield. We love Tim Tebow here - even if he does play in the Mets organization - and we’re always happy to hear that something positive has happened in his career and in his life. So when ESPN re-upped with Tebow on his deal to be part of its college football studio offerings, we were nothing if not pleased. If Tebow wants to do TV while pursuing his baseball dreams, we’re all over it. But we couldn’t help but wonder: Does ESPN usually make such a big deal out of an existing talent re-signing? Because if one were inclined...
  • Federal Official Again Declares That College Football Players Can Unionize

    A hallmark of the federal bureaucracy under Obama was that it pushed the boundaries of government power at every step, especially when doing so helped groups allied to the Democratic Party. Labor unions are one of those groups. Even though many individual workers don’t favor the Democrats, the union hierarchy has hitched its fortunes to them. They’re always looking for any advantage that politicians or bureaucrats can give them. Back in 2014, Big Labor got excited over the possibility of unionizing college football players when the National Labor Relations Board’s regional director in Chicago ruled that members of Northwestern University’s...
  • Clemson’s final ‘pick play’ was perfect, legal, and should remain so

    Clemson beat Alabama in the national championship game on Monday night, 35-31, a thrilling end to a very good college football season. The Tigers won the game with a play run with just a few seconds remaining, when quarterback Deshaun Watson rolled to his right and found 5-foot-10 receiver Hunter Renfrow wide open in the corner of the end zone. He looked almost a little too wide open. And thus began the scrutiny.

(AP Photo/John Bazemore) Last year’s College Football Playoff championship game was a classic. This year’s was even better. And in the end, Clemson got its revenge over Alabama. Deshaun Watson hit Hunter Renfrow for a two-yard touchdown pass with one second to play as the Tigers edged the Crimson Tide, 35-31, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Monday night. The win gave Clemson its second national...

    CBS News January 1, 2017 Get ready for a blockbuster sequel. It’s Alabama vs. Clemson, The Rematch. The top-ranked Crimson Tide will take on the No. 3 Tigers in a do-over of last season’s national championship game, a 45-40 thriller won by Alabama. If the Jan. 9 matchup in Tampa comes anywhere close to that classic in the desert, it will more than make up for two semifinal duds on Saturday. Alabama (14-0) wore down No. 4 Washington for a 24-7 victory in the Peach Bowl, while Clemson dominated No. 2 Ohio State 31-0 in the Fiesta Bowl, handing Urban...

AP Photo The rise of Southeastern football in general and Alabama football specifically and all the endless gloating that goes along with it? It's Washington's fault. That isn't just jealous prattle from fans of Oregon or Washington State, likely the two fan bases most annoyed by the Huskies' sudden rise to the College Football Playoff semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl opposite the vaunted Crimson Tide. No, it's a perfectly reasonable extrapolation from the words of multiple historians and sportswriters. On the surface, No. 4 Washington...

    In perhaps the most ironic ending to a sporting event ever, Grambling State beat North Carolina Central in the Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl in part because of a … penalty for excessive celebration. After NC Central’s Quentin Atkinson pulled down a 39-yard TD pass from Malcolm Bell to cut the deficit to 10-9 with just over two minutes remaining, Atkinson was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct when he removed his helmet while galloping around the end zone.

    Washington D.C., Dec 15, 2016 / 03:05 am (CNA/EWTN News).- You might have seen an Army chaplain devoutly praying the rosary on the sideline during Saturday's Army-Navy football game. Who was he and what was he praying for? “I always pray for both our teams, for no serious injury on either team. And I pray for the kids on both teams, and just for their holiness and their salvation,” Fr. Matthew Pawlikowski, chaplain of the United States Military Academy at West Point, told CNA. “And then I ask for Army's victory,” he added. Saturday's Army-Navy game was the 117th meeting...

    What a sight to behold! After 14 long years in the gridiron desert, the football team of the United States Military Academy defeated their age-old nemesis, the United States Naval Academy, in that most iconic of American rivalries, the Army-Navy football game. As fans’ feet and fingers froze at icy M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore last Saturday, the game opened with an invocation by a Navy chaplain, whose baritone delivery and thunderous phrases brought to mind Charlton Heston in the Ten Commandments. I half-expected him to produce a couple of stone tablets with the game’s final score etched on them,...

    The Army football team and its fans around the world can finally rejoice. No longer will they have to listen to barbs from Navy or lament another missed opportunity in the biggest game of the year. At long last, The Streak is over. Army ended a 14-year run of frustration against the Midshipmen, using an overpowering running game and opportunistic defense to carve out a long overdue 21-17 victory Saturday. With future commander in chief Donald Trump looking on, the Black Knights blew a 14-point lead before quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw scored on a 9-yard run with 6:42 left to give...

    A brief skirmish between South Carolina and Clemson players broke out on the field before Saturday's game at Memorial Stadium, and Gamecocks players said afterward that it began when a Clemson player shouted a racial slur. The confrontation between the two teams occurred on the field about 80 minutes before the game began, according to The State. South Carolina linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams told reporters that a Clemson player "used the N-word." He said he was unable to identify the player.

First of all, #28 Notre Dame defensive player blindsided USC's Aca’Cedric Ware with a helmet smash on Aca’Cedric Ware's right helmet side knocking him unconcious. Then before medical help arrived, Notre Dame's #99, Jerry Tillery, used his left foot to push the head of the downed USC player before being shoved away by USC staff. Then later, this same animal stomped on the foot of a downed and injured USC player. I have listed the...
