  • Army-Navy game will be played at West Point for first time since World War II

    West Point will host the 121st Army-Navy game on Dec. 12 instead of it being played in Philadelphia as planned, because attendance limits in the state of Pennsylvania during the coronavirus pandemic would prevent the Brigade of Midshipmen and Corps of Cadets to attend the game, the service academies announced on Friday. It will be the first time since World War II -- when Annapolis hosted the 1942 game and West Point the 1943 game -- that the rivalry has been played at a home site. The two schools also rotated hosting the first four games from 1890 to 1893.
  • NFL bad beat: Jake Elliott's missed 29-yard field goal cost a bettor about $238,000

    A 29-yard field goal for a professional kicker ó or a college kicker or most high-school kickers ó should be automatic. Keep that in mind. On Thursday, a bettor made a big play on the Philadelphia Eagles-New York Giants game. He or she put $250,000 on the Eagles -3 in the first half. The payout would have been $488,095.25. OK, back to the 29-yard field goal.

    Michigan football helmets are one of the most distinguishable lids in college or pro football. The Wolverines winged look with the Maize and Blue colors has been in place for a century, but there will be a slight modification for this coming season. When the Michigan Wolverines hit the field for Saturday's season-opener at Minnesota, they'll have an "EQUALITY" sticker on the back representing the diversity and commitment to unity. The helmet decals will be worn by all Michigan's varsity sports this year after a student-athlete initiative in conjunction with the athletic department developed the designs that will be worn...

    The Big Ten is slated to begin its 2020 football schedule this week. But when one team takes to the field, theyíll be sporting a black helmet logo to show solidarity with the fight for social change. On Thursday, the Illinois football team announced that their players will be wearing a black Block I decal on their helmets for their season-opener against Wisconsin tomorrow. The move is the result of an initiative from the student-athletes in support of advocating for social change.
  • Joe Buck will survive his grueling October with a private plane and lots of coronavirus tests

    Joe Buckís necessities for the next two weeks: one giant suitcase, two garment bags, plenty of room service and at least nine novel coronavirus tests. Thatís the price of entry for the unusual stretch he is in, calling what could be 13 baseball games and four football games in 18 days. As the sports schedule has been scrambled this fall by the pandemic, Buck, the lead play-by-play announcer for Fox Sportsís baseball and football coverage, has seen his itinerary warped, too.

  • Jets might end up the worst team in NFL history

    NY Post ^ | October 19, 2020 | Brian Costello
    The 2020 Jets are on pace to be arguably the worst team in NFL modern history. Let that swirl around your head for a minute. No, this is not hyperbole. The 0-6 Jets are heading toward finishing as one of the worst teams ever, maybe the worst team ever, barring a dramatic turnaround. The Jets have 10 games left, so there is time. But is there hope? Of the Jetsí remaining games, seven are against teams that are currently .500 or better. Two of those games against teams under .500 are against the Patriots. Does anyone expect the Jets to...

    FOX broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman donít appear to be big fans of military pregame flyovers at NFL games. In a video obtained by Defector media, Buck and Aikman, who apparently didnít know they were being recorded, could be heard on a hot mic before the start of Sundayís Packers-Bucs game mocking the pregame flyover as a waste of money by the government. TROY AIKMAN: Thatís a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover. JOE BUCK: Thatís your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work! AIKMAN: That stuff ainít happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. Iíll...

    Saturday Down South ^ | October 18, 2020 | Jim Tomlin
    Alabama and Georgia put on a display on Saturday, proving why they are the top two teams in the SEC. The Dawgs lost, but Georgia fans can take solace in two things: One, everyone in the East has at least one loss, so everything that UGA wants to achieve is still on the table. Two, the Dawgs are unlikely to take much damage in the rankings or, more important, in the eyes of the College Football Playoff committee. Or, maybe UGA fans wonít find these thoughts that comforting:

    The Tennessee Vols football season has reached the point, after a 34-7 blowout home loss to the hated Kentucky Wildcats, where windows are being smashed by flying beer bottles and wives are looking for new relationships. Now 2-2 after back-to-back losses with Alabama coming to town Saturday, itís getting ugly, especially on the Tony Basilio Show where this caller said itís bad in his home. ďIíve been watching Tennessee football for 30 years and I did something today that Iíve never done,Ē Vols fan said. ďI messed up and threw a beer bottle through a window and my wife left...

    What happens when state and local officials ease COVID restrictions and let Eagles fans back into Lincoln Financial Field? Yep, a couple Eagles fans get into an upper deck fan fight just like the days when this place was packed shoulder to shoulder. You can empty out nearly every Eagles fan from Lincoln Financial Field, but you canít empty out the scumbaggy out of an Eagles fan. There was a period during the Super Bowl run in 2018 when Eagles fans stopped fighting during games because the team was rolling and fans didnít want to risk missing any of the...

    This time next week, the Big Ten will have played its first slate of games in its 2020 season. Another couple of weeks after that, the Pac-12 and the rest of the FBS will have joined the party. It's a reminder that there's a lot of football that not only has to be played, but a lot of football that hasn't even started. And yet the biggest game of the year feels like it just took place. Alabama and Georgia faced off in prime time with both teams trying to prove they are one of the best teams in this...

    NFL ratings among Republican voters have been down through the first three games of the 2020 season, according to a report from Comscore ratings firm, ABC News reported. The company categorized ratings by political affiliation, discovering that ratings in Republican households dropped 11, 17 and 8 percent across the first three games respectively, according to ABC News. "These significant viewership changes reinforce the importance of having advanced audience information because media buyers and sellers have to adapt quickly when cultural forces reshape consumer behavior," Comscore Chief Revenue Officer Carol Hinnant said in a news release. NFL viewership has also seen...

    The first chords flutter a little after 8 a.m. A keyboardist and guitarist lead the way. Harmonizing voices warm. Spotlights brighten. And on a gorgeous winter morning in Las Vegas, inside the nondescript beige building at 325 East Windmill Lane, souls begin to stir. Itís the third Sunday of January. Roads are empty. Most of Vegas sleeps. But here, four miles south of the strip, two parking lots fill. Around 150 people stream into Remnant Ministries. Gospel music fills their ears. An elder white woman closes her eyes and spreads her arms. An elder Black woman kneels and tilts her...

    Oklahoma survived Texas after four overtimes Saturday afternoon, keeping its hopes of a Big 12 title alive in the process. One Texas supporter wasnít too thrilled by the outcome. Immediately following the final play of the game, an interception of Sam Ehlinger by Tre Brown, the camera panned to upset Longhorns fans giving the surrender cobra. One of them did not appreciate being part of the moment. The female fan, clearly annoyed, proceeded to flick off the camera live on FOX. Sheís going mega-viral in the aftermath.

    (CNN)Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott left the field on a cart Sunday, choking back tears as he raised a fist to the fans in attendance at the AT&T Stadium after suffering a horrific injury against NFC East opponents the New York Giants. Prescott has undergone surgery to repair a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle. The surgery aimed to "wash out the wound and fix the fracture," according to a statement from the team. The injury occurred in the third quarter on a scramble in which Prescott was tackled awkwardly by Giants free safety Logan Ryan. Medical personnel...
