Deconstructing Richard Sherman's Absurd Parody Rant

In case you missed it, Sherman went to the podium yesterday with a cardboard cutout of teammate Doug Baldwin, who was crouched down out of sight for this comedy routine. They were attempting to call out the NFL for what they view as hypocritical policies--inspired by the league's $100,000 fine of teammate Marshawn Lynch. Sherman no doubt thought he was scoring points, and making sense. He was not. Nov 26, 2014 11:11 AM PT

Weapon of Mass Delusion: Rove Lied, Republican Brand Died

Many people were startled when the New York Times broke an eight part story a few days ago about a Karl Rove-led cover-up of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) in Iraq -- and then The Daily Beast followed up with a report entitled "Insiders Blame Rove for Covering Up Iraq's Real WMD."

Goodell, NFL Go Tone Deaf on Vontaze Burfict Ruling

In light of the Ray Rice episode, it's hard to imagine that the NFL would once again undershoot on a player punishment--and yet that's exactly what has happened in the Vontaze Burfict "ankle gate" case. Oct 16, 2014 5:53 AM PT

Remember Me? Steve Smith Goes Off on the Air after Going Off on the Field

On Sunday afternoon in Baltimore, long time Carolina Panther Steve Smith torched his former team with 139 yards receiving and a couple of touchdowns. Yesterday, on a Charlotte sports talk show, Smith put the wood to the Panthers again. For their defense's sake on Sunday, and for their offense's sake the rest of the season, Carolina fans wish they had Smith in a Panthers uniform once again. Oct 2, 2014 8:04 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.

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
