We see a lot of strange stories flow through the inbox and across our television screens related to sports passions running wild. We see the frenzied, sign-carrying fans on “College GameDay.” The competition continues to grow with the advent of new television networks (FOX Sports 1, NBC Sports Network, CBS Sports Network), 24-7 radio networks [...]

ESPN rolled with Les Miles as he headed to the office ahead of the big showdown with Alabama. We learn about his family’s breakfast table and that he drives like a boss. Stop. Put your head on a swivel. Barrel through that red light with a nod to “anticipation.”

You might remember the story of a man being arrested for “performing a simulated sex act on an unconscious man” following the BCS title game this past year. It made all of the rounds on sports talk radio and the evening laugh-fests. On Tuesday, Louisiana prosecutors reached a plea agreement with the perpetrator, a man [...]

He played at left tackle and has the physicality to slow down the bull rush off of the edge and the beef to get the ground game rolling. Does this mean that Matt Hasselbeck [...]
