  • Memphis scores on bizarre 94-yard punt return against Mississippi State

    The Tigers led 21-17 in the fourth quarter when the Bulldogs punted. The ball was kept out of the end zone by one of the Mississippi State special teams players. Another thought he downed it inside the Memphis 10. However, an alert Calvin Austin III picked up the ball and took off the other way. While one Mississippi State player congratulated another and an official looked like he was calling the play dead. But … Before Mississippi State knew it, Austin was in the end zone 94 yards later for a Memphis touchdown.
  • Tom Brady Believes He Can Keep Launching NFL Touchdowns Until He’s 50 Years Old: ‘I Don’t Find it so Difficult’

    It’s never happened before in the history of the sport, but according to Tom Brady the concept of playing in the NFL at age 50 doesn’t seem difficult. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their iconic quarterback hosting the Tommy & Gronky show with tight end Rob Gronkowski, where the two answer what is supposed to be “the internet’s most searched questions.” Most of the topics fall short of what’s actually trending on Google, but Gronk put Brady under a little bit of pressure with one of the questions. “Can Tom Brady play until 50 years old?” the tight end read....
  • 50 years later, the Game of the Century resonates as Nebraska, Oklahoma rekindle faded rivalry

    They'll play a game Saturday morning in which the home team is a 22-point favorite. The game was deemed so non-competitive that the visiting team tried to cancel it a scant six months ago. Forget about the label once affixed to the most notable game in this rivalry's history: Game of the Century. Nebraska-Oklahoma is not even the game of the day headed into Week 3 of the 2021 college football season. The rivalry is a shell of its former self, the threads of history yanked apart by time and conference realignment. A rivalry that used to measure itself against...

    It only took 14 days for half of the preseason Top 4 teams to fall in 2021. The seismic shift could continue this Saturday with the No. 1 thru No. 3 squads all playing Power 5 foes including top dog (1) Alabama’s roadie at (11) Florida. From start to finish, Week 3 serves up 73 matchups, all but 21 (or 29%) featuring an FBS vs. FBS pairing. Though the action kicks-off on Thursday night, no ranked teams will hit the field until a Saturday jam-packed with 70 contests. If you’re wondering what the most fruitful time slot might be, all...

    It was a rude awakening for the Texas Longhorns as they travelled to Fayetteville, Arkansas to face off with the Arkansas Razorbacks. The only thing they left town with besides a loss was the realization that they are most certainly not ready to compete in the SEC. Lucky for them, there still might be time to sneak in and shred the contract.

    Bill Maher took aim at the NFL for playing Lift Every Voice and Sing - otherwise known as the black national anthem - at Thursday's game between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Real Time with Bill Maher host warned that having two different national anthems, based on race, was a slippery slope to 'segregation' but 'under a different name,' he said. 'I think when you go down a road where you're having two different national anthems, colleges... have different graduation ceremonies for black and white, separate dorms... this is what I mean: segregation,' Maher said on his...

    MADISON, WI After more than 75,000 fans packed Camp Randall for the Wisconsin Badger football team home opener, a state lawmaker is questioning the scope of UW's mask policy on campus. Masks are required inside UW campus buildings and indoor spaces at Camp Randall, but not in outdoor seats. The university encourages masks in outdoor areas of the stadium. State Sen. Steve Nass (R-Whitewater) accused the UW system of "extreme hypocrisy" after fans were allowed to make their own decision on masking shoulder-to-shoulder Saturday afternoon but are required to wear a mask in campus buildings. "Will the Republican legislature be...

    The nation’s top infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci, condemned college football games that were packed with fans not wearing masks. “I don’t think it’s smart,” Fauci said during a CNN interview after he was shown pictures of college football stadiums with maskless fans. “Outdoors is always better than indoors, but even when you have such a congregate setting of people close together,” Fauci said. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that fully vaccinated individuals wear masks outside if they are in a crowded space where they are unable to practice social distancing.

    College football is back. COVID panic porn peddlers are upset but are powerless. Sports are back. The fans are back. You can have a meltdown in your bunker. We’re getting on with life. The season is back after our chaotic and humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan where Joe Biden left Americans behind. The economy is in the toilet, with the August jobs report being utter garbage and way, way below expectations. Inflation is also rising. We’re also dealing with a natural disaster in Hurricane Ida—and Joe Biden is at the helm for all of it. Seriously, 81 million people voted for...

    Middlesbrough defender Marc Bola has been charged with 'aggravated' misconduct for comments he made on social media nine years ago. The 23-year-old left-back, who Boro signed from Blackpool in July 2019, is alleged by the Football Association to have posted 'a reference to sexual orientation' in 2012, when he was 14. An FA statement read: 'Middlesbrough FC's Marc Bola has been charged with a misconduct for a breach of FA Rule E3 in relation to a social media post on April 14, 2012.

    For the 2021 football season, the National Football League (NFL) will permit its players to display far-left propaganda on their outfits, and the league will even provide six different phrases for players to choose from for display on their helmets during games, as Fox News reports.
