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

Coaching Matters: Malzahn Wins Pre-Game Prep, Fisher Better with In-Game Adjustments

One of the interesting angles of Tuesday night's BCS Championship Game was the coaching match-up, pitting two coaches who had assisted in previous title games, but had never been there as the head man. After review, it is pretty clear that the Gus Malzahn-Jimbo Fisher match up was a split decision, albeit a more satisfying result for Fisher, of course. Jan 7, 2014 9:16 AM PT

FSU-AUBURN: What the Bowl Games Say About BCS Title Bout

It's a dangerous thing to use comparative scores of the previous bowl games to predict tonight's BCS Championship game - but until kick-off, it's all we have. And besides, it's fun, even if it proves to be inaccurate. So with that in mind, let's review a few bowls to see if the results speak to tonight's Auburn-Florida State game. Jan 6, 2014 10:12 AM PT

Johnny Football and Duke: Unlikely Opponents Clash for Manziel's Signature Moment

Johnny Manziel is, without a doubt, must-see TV. He seems to be part Fan Tarkenton, part Doug Flutie, part RGIII, and part Houdini. The total package is one of a kind. So unusual, effective and mesmerizing is his style of play, that after only 25 college games, he was legendary. He seems to be on ESPN more than Tiger Woods was in the mid 2000's.

ESPN's 'Pajama Boy' Attempts to Redefine Masculinity

ESPN's normally excellent "Sports Reporters" show joined the ranks of GLAAD, Organizing For America (OFA), Out2Enroll and others in yet another attempt by the cultural left to redefine what it means to be a man in this country in 2013. At least, this was the apparent goal of panelist Pablo Torre, who ended the show in his Parting Shot (all four panelist get a parting shot each week) with a soliloquy titled "Redefining Masculinity."

Are Panthers Turning Cam Newton into Trent Dilfer?

As the Carolina Panthers have charged to 10 wins in their last 11 games, clinching a playoff spot and needing only to beat the Falcons to secure a division title and playoff bye, there has been a common media meme: Cam Newton is developing into a star quarterback under the guidance of offensive coordinator Mike Shula. Really? I've never bought in, and I'm still selling today. If what Cam has done this year is progress, I'd hate to see regression. Dec 23, 2013 12:25 PM PT

A Proper Eulogy for BCS: Controversial System Did Work in Many Ways

Before you throw rocks at your screen, let me stipulate that I am NOT making the case for keeping the BCS system. I am excited to see the beginning of the next era in football championships, which begins next season. However, as we prepare to pull the plug on what will no doubt be referred to in years hence as "the BCS era" in major college football, it is high time to finally give the BCS its due. By that, I mean it's about time to compare the BCS to what it replaced, instead of the system replacing it, let alone some notion of championship utopia. This is a concept that somehow escapes all the wizards at ESPN, let alone sports-talk radio nation. Besides, we always remember the good in a eulogy anyway. Dec 3, 2013 11:19 AM PT

Opinion: NFL Definition of 'Touchdown' Nebulous like Obamacare

It is no secret that the National Football League, and football in general, has been under attack from a lot of quarters recently. Consussions, murder, bullying, and controversial rules changes have dominated the headlines. Youth football participation is reportedly down ten percent this year, and number one fan Rush Limbaugh confessed to simply losing interest on his show Monday, something that was unthinkable for the long time Pittsburgh Steeler fanatic just months ago.  Nov 19, 2013 9:28 AM PT

ACC v. Maryland: Case Could Redefine Relationships Between Conferences, Schools

Meanwhile, the real story is that this case could go a long way towards stabilizing, or destabilizing, current conference alignments. If the ACC wins, the current conference make-up nationwide is what we can probably count on for at least a number of years, since most conference now have mega exit fees. If Maryland wins, all exit fees might become moot … and watch out. Nov 19, 2013 8:56 AM PT

Zany SEC East: Three Teams Still Alive for Title

The SEC East race is still a delightful mess, with three teams still holding on to title hopes. Each of these three teams has a set of requirements, and also a wish list, and yet the prize would appear to be a chance to get blasted by Alabama on National TV. This could reduce each of these teams' bowl options, not to mention national their ranking. Nov 5, 2013 2:17 PM PT

Local Media Can't Resist Piling on Duke Basketball over Gun Photo

If anyone thinks that Duke basketball gets a pass from their local media in North Carolina, they don't understand the dynamic of being a small school just a few miles from the much larger U. of North Carolina and N.C. State.  This is magnified by the fact that UNC also has a large journalism school which floods the local area with pro Tar Heel reporters. Oct 24, 2013 2:00 PM PT
