In honor of the last National Championship Texas A&M won, they had Adidas make the best throwback uniforms ever. Mot only did they make a throwback jersey, but they also made throwback cleats and a sweet leather looking throwback helmet! Take a look at what A&M will be wearing this weekend when they face Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. These are the coolest helmets I have ever seen! Then Adidas outdo themselves with theses cleats. You look good, you feel good, you play good. That is what Texas A&M needs right now Especially after loosing their last game 59-0 to Alabama. Maybe this is the start of better things for them. ...

In a tight defensive game between #3 Ole Miss and #24 LSU, LSU freshman running back Leonard Fournette had his face mask, that is right, not his helmet but his facemask ripped right off of his helmet by Ole Miss line backer Serderious Bryant. I have never seen anything like it and doubt many people if any have. The helmet stayed on his head somehow. The Nations top defense is apparently tired of this freshman running back who has already piled up 155 yards rushing against them. Tearing off his facemask got him off the field at least.  Two plays later LSU took the lead with a play action pass to go ahead 10-7 with 5:00 left in the fourth quarter. ...

This week saw 3 of the top 4 teams in the country fall, here are my predictions on who the top 4 teams will be This week, college football had many upsets, none more shocking then the fact that 3 of the top 4 teams fell. Florida State was the lone team that won, and is continuing to show that they are looking to repeat the success of last season. But Oregon, Alabama, and Oklahoma fell short, as well as number 6 Texas A&M and number 14 Stanford, two teams that had been looking strong up until this week. I’m going to give you my 4 playoff teams and why they will be in, and also my first 2 teams out and why they won’t be in. 1. Florida State While Florida State may not be owning the headlines like they were last year, they are still getting the job ...

It was close the whole game. USC was in the lead the whole fourth quarter even though they kept trading touchdown after touchdown with the Arizona State Sun Devils. QB Mike Bercovici is only in his 2nd start for the Sun Devils and looked composed the whole game. With seven seconds left on the clock Bercovici threw it up to the end zone and WR Jaelen Strong jumped right in front of a defender that was waiting for the ball for the go ahead touchdown. The Sun Devils kept the score close but failed to recover on side kicks on two different opportunities. They were able to force a three and out and got the ball back with just 29 seconds left. USCs defense seemed over matched by the Devils passing game in the fourth quarter. The Rose Bowl cleared out fast as Arizona celebrated their win. Mike Bercovici had an ...

The PAC 12 conference has increased in its competitiveness drastically over the past 3 seasons, since expanding to 12 teams from 10. Although the two added teams, Utah and Colorado, have been at the bottom of the conference the league over all has benefited from increased exposure and better recruiting out west. Here are how I see both divisions playing out this coming fall. North 1. Oregon  The best team in the conference for the last few years has been Oregon. Their flashy high powered offence has been the talk of the town and has influenced offenses across all levels of football including the NFL. The only team that has Oregon’s number is division foe Stanford. I pick Oregon over Stanford only because Oregon has a much easier road to the PAC 12 championship. The Ducks don’t have to play either ASU or USC this year and they get home ...

It was almost 11:30 pm on a school night when I stood up and cheered as Vince Young ran it in on 4th and 5 to beat USC for the 2005 BCS National Championship. I was only 16 but had followed the Longhorns ever since I was little. A few years later they worked their way back only to get stomped by Alabama in 2009. Ever since then the Longhorns have been inconsistent to say the least. Texas’ hero coach Mack Brown seemed to be getting old and started to become known as a tremendous recruiter who could never get the maximum out of his classes. Going into last season he was on the hot seat. A Need for Change I was there when the straw was placed on the camel’s back snapped it in two. My first live Texas game was when they came to town last season to ...

Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Jim Brown, Jackie Robinson and many others have helped make their sports great. Top athletes attract hundreds and thousands, if not even millions of fans, drive additional revenue for their teams and make history by doing amazing things only few people have the skills to do. Top athletes break records and drive others to be better. But, sometimes these records are too far beyond reach. Below are eight sports records that will probably never be broken.   1. 22,895 – Most receiving yards in a career by Jerry Rice During 20 seasons in the NFL, Jerry Rice, who played for the four teams including the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders holds just about every possible receiving record including most receptions and points scored. The next closest player is Marvin Harrison who hasn’t played football since 2008. 2. 2,857 career goals by Wayne Gretzky After 20 years ...

  Dear  Adam Silver, Roger Goodell, coaches and team owners worldwide, Three weeks ago Donald Sterling came under fire for his racist and disgusting comments. He was fined $2.5 million and banned from the game and rightfully so. The commissioner came down hard and strong and it was the right decision. There is no place for racism, not just in sports, but anywhere amongst humanity. Something in the same category, but with worse physical repercussions is domestic abuse. The leniency that is given to them for their domestic abuse problems that happen all to often and go unpunished. Greg Hardy, the defensive end for the Carolina Panthers made headlines this week for “allegedly” giving a ‘woopin’ to his girlfriend, Nicole Holder because he was jealous of a past relationship she had with rapper Nelly. According to the police report Holder was thrown into a bathtub, then dragged across the floor by her ...

If your team missed the NBA playoffs this year then you’re probably looking forward to the 2014 NBA draft. The next player they draft could reshape the future of your franchise for years to come. So let’s cut to the chase and talk about this year’s draft. The 2014 NBA Draft lottery takes place tonight and this draft class appears to have a deeper than normal talent pool. Since the Milwaukee Bucks finished with the league’s worst record during the 2013-14 NBA regular season, they obviously have the highest probability of winning the No. 1 overall pick. The results of the lottery will be nationally televised on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET, right before Game 2 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. Here’s how the 2014 lottery drawings will work: “Fourteen ping-pong balls numbered 1 through 14 will be placed in a drum. There are 1,001 possible combinations when four ...

During an interview with The Plain Dealer, University of Kentucky coach John Calipari stated that he would love a chance to coach Miami Heat forward LeBron James. Calipari told Mary Schmitt Boyer: “Are you kidding me? Have a chance to coach the best player in the world? Yes, I would love to coach him.” But Coach Cal doesn’t actually think he’ll have an opportunity to coach the NBA’s most popular player anytime soon. It’s highly unlikely Erik Spoelstra loses his Miami Heat job, and it’s even more unlikely that LeBron will go back to Cleveland. Under Pat Riley’s leadership, the Heat have been in four consecutive eastern conference finals, so I’m certain LeBron will stay in Miami. Hypothetically speaking, it would be a dream come true for fans in Cleveland if he did return. LeBron James coming back home, teaming up with Kyrie Irving and joining forces with a great basketball ...
