ESPN Insults Viewers with Infantile Anti-Redskins Crusade

On the day that ESPN released a poll showing 71 percent of Americans favor keeping the nickname of Washington's NFL team, the World Wide Leader in Sports aired an advocacy documentary fueling the idea that "Redskins" is somehow divisive. Sep 3, 2014 8:55 AM PT

Four Landmark Rulings: Opening and Shutting Pandora's Boxes in College Sports

It has been a dizzying few months for big-time college football and basketball players, coaches, fans and the attendant media. How all of this will change college sports is yet to be determined, but without a doubt, we are in a new era. On the one hand, it is pleasurable to see an operation as bureaucratic, heavy-handed and corrupt as the NCAA take a few lumps. On the other hand, market forces of supply and demand insist that college athletes already had a pretty darn good deal. Aug 17, 2014 1:55 PM PT

Atheist Group Sues Clemson Football Program for Prayers, Bible Studies

Coach Dabo Swinney and his Clemson football program face attack again--but this time it's not some light-hearted quip from South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier. No, today it's a complaint filed against the football program by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), an atheist rights group from Wisconsin. Apr 16, 2014 12:00 PM PT

It's Official: Loss to Mercer Caps Coach K's Career-Worst Season Performance

When Coach K's legacy is finally written - and a good number of chapters have been filed away already - his name will be either right above or right below that of John Wooden's. That specific pecking order probably depends on how you want to adjust and norm their resumes for very different eras. Having said that, I think it's fairly clear that 2013-2014 will go down as K's least successful season. Mar 21, 2014 12:52 PM PT

Analysis: No Final Four Potential Among ACC Teams in 2014 NCAA Tournament

With N.C. State's win over Xavier on Tuesday night, the Atlantic Coast Conference has 5 teams in the big dance--or at least, 5 in the official final 64. As you analyze each of those five, however, you're left to wonder if any of them will survive the first full weekend and even make it to the "Sweet Sixteen." Mar 20, 2014 6:54 AM PT

Duke Talks About 'D,' But Dawkins, Offense Key to NCAA Title Hopes

In the aftermath of Duke's 93-81 win over North Carolina, the victorious Blue Devils talked like many Duke players have during the last three decades. They talked about defense. They insisted that their success comes from D and that their improvement must be on the defensive end. Mar 10, 2014 7:33 PM PT

Northwestern's Union Play: Could It End Women's College Sports?

It's been almost comical to watch the liberal sports media's obvious arousal over what they deem the heroic effort by the Northwestern football team to unionize. I say almost comical, because this effort is something that could change the face of college athletics forever, and not necessarily for the good either. It is also based on a fundamental flaw. And as is the case with liberals in general, the MSNBC wannabes at ESPN - and other outlets - have no situational awareness of the potential unintended consequences if this is successful.

Russell Wilson's Amicable, Confusing Divorce from NC State

When Russell Wilson recently termed the turmoil that defined the end of his college career as "a whole Pack of Badgers," the Seahawks' quarterback was referring to three years for the N.C. State Wolfpack and a year with the Badgers of Wisconsin. Jan 27, 2014 10:51 AM PT

Opinion: ESPN's Scott Van Pelt Flocks to Richard Sherman's Dog Whistle Claims

Rush Limbaugh, who is white, guranteed a few days ago that we would become more and more impressed with Richard Sherman, who is black, as we learned more about him. And Rush was right, as Sherman continued to eloquently put his over the top post game rant to Fox Sports into perspective, including what appeared to be a sincere apology and reasoned explanation.  Jan 24, 2014 6:00 AM PT

Shameful Maryland Leaving ACC on Low Note

In the same week that the University of Maryland announced a decision to contemplate covering gender re-assignment surgery for their students, the school has filed a 157 million dollar counterclaim lawsuit against the Atlantic Coast Conference related to their conference re-assignment.

Opinion: Liberal 'Nation' Mag Freaking over 'Racist' Seminole Mascot Winning BCS

Dave Zirin is the official sports writer for one of the country's kookiest publications, The Nation. I was surprised to find out that this rag required a sports writer, given that the liberal solution to sport is to not keep score. Nonetheless, a little research confirms that Zirin is actually somewhat of a rabble-rousing celeb among the sporting Marxist do-gooders. It also confirms that this is quite the little cottage industry. Jan 8, 2014 7:29 AM PT
