Barry Switzer has something important to say

What do you have for us, coach?

Art Modell's complicated legacy

Art Modell's impact on the NFL is shrouded in gray, but we've learned time and again that individuals aren't really allowed to be complex characters when it comes to a kitschy plaque.

Spirit Airlines disses A-Rod

Maybe they'll tackle other hot sports takes soon in their marketing strategy.

Starting at power forward from Akron, @ZipsMBB

The Zips are getting the Nike logo alternate treatment with one fun extra element: the team's Twitter handle is on the back.

Harbaugh Bowl? We need Bowden Bowl

What happens the next time the Harbaughs coach against each other in the Super Bowl? The Bowden Brothers have to band together instead of asking what could have been.

Logan Thomas' Run

Basically, Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas is deciding whether or not he's declaring for the NFL Draft today. What follows, instead, is science fiction.

Falcons destroy narrative, are in NFC Championship

The Seahawks used Russell Wilson's athleticism and some poorly timed Matt Ryan throws to complete the comeback. But Atlanta found a way to win, hopefully destroying the 'bad sports town' rhetoric...


Seattle comeback deserves a soundtrack

Fox played some Soundgarden after a critical Matt Ryan interception, but we can do better. Let's go deeper in the Seattle music scene.


Tony Gonzalez close to first playoff win

Atlanta's tight end is a quarter away from one of the few accolades that has eluded him through his historic career: a playoff win.


Atlanta hitting Seattle with that 'Falcon Punch'

If the Seahawks don't show the Falcons their moves soon, it's going to be a total knockout.


G.I. Joe is at the Seattle-Atlanta game

The Real American Hero is present and accounted for in Atlanta.


Tony Gonzalez TD gives Falcons a 10-0 lead

After falling behind 14-0 against the Redskins, the Seahawks find themselves in a hole once again to Atlanta.


Don't you know Richard Sherman is loco?

Atlanta's talented receivers could cause any secondary fits, but if anyone is up to the task, it's Richard Sherman and the Seattle bunch.


What else is new?

For the third season in a row, a significant injury has cost the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Brazilian big man.

Let's rate every bowl

At a glance, here is every bowl game and its ensuing enjoyment factor based on scientific categories like sponsor ads, number of verts, fighting between teammates, commentators drooling all over...

Bama fans are pretty normal

Camping out for National Championship shirts before the game is even over? Why not? Roll Damn Merchandise.

Kate Upton taking shots at the Jets

Take that, Mark Sanchez. That's what you get for being so darned handsome.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix says, "Hello!"

Nick Saban and his cast of characters will take over the world pretty soon.

LeBron demands Oregon vs. Alabama next

Maybe we should give it to him.

Will Saban or Kelly be the next Browns coach?

Jimmy Haslam is going to back the truck up to pay for a coach, so which of the BCS Championship coaches should the Cleveland Browns go with?

Bama suplexing Notre Dame and stuff

Hopefully Alabama won't have to write any letters this time after suplexing Notre Dame all over the place.

Alabama muffs punt, officials muff call

You can decide for yourselves whether the Notre Dame player made contact with the Alabama player.

Lee Corso is a leprechaun

He made a choice and that choice was to chase the rainbow.


Arian Foster is all class

The Texans' talented running back showed a nice gesture after scoring against the Colts in Week 17.


Missed FG is the most beautiful thing I have seen

Eagles' kicker Alex Henery is making a statement on American society. Or he's just having a rough day.

Bowl game rankings, so far

Let's stay super scientific and rate each bowl game on its fun factor and overall enjoyment. This installment features the Poinsettia, Beef 'O' Brady's, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Hawaii and Little...


Eagles lose as only the Eagles can

It almost makes us yearn for the Hoagie Gate era.


Shhh, Danny Woodhead is juggling

Please don't throw off his concentration.


CBS thought Raiders had 3rd and 61

That still might be in Sebastian Janikowski's range though.


Kai Forbath has an NFL kicking record

He's got the most consecutive field goals made in a row to start a career. Way to go buddy!
