Oakland Raiders: Not the Worst Team in the NFL in 2013, Won’t Be in 2014 Either: It seems Mike Wilkening of Pro Football Talk doesn’t think too highly of the Oakland Raiders‘ efforts as he slotted them in the 32nd position

Meyer admits mistakes ... sort of: Urban Meyer on Wednesday finally and inevitably stopped running from the messy trail he left at Florida.

Rich Rodriguez: Some Michigan players 'felt a sense of entitlement': He was implementing a spread-option offense, while working mostly with players recruited for a pro-style scheme, and said he just needed time.

Will U-M embrace Fab 5?: If it is indeed true that time heals all wounds, then the University of Michigan athletic department should have no qualms about welcoming back members of the Fab Five and other basketball standouts from the late 1990s inside the Crisler Center next year.

Runner carries injured foe half mile to help in middle of race: "I didn't think about my race, I knew I needed to stop and help him," Ripley said in the school district release. "It was something I would expect my other teammates to do. I'm nothing special; I was just in the right place at the right time." In today's "Everyman For Himself" society, its nice to hear stories like this.

Oakland Raiders: Not the Worst Team in the NFL in 2013, Won’t Be in 2014 Either

I realize that this once feared franchise hasn't been relevant in a while, and Mark Davis will never know the game, or be the Legend his daddy was, but he seems to know that he needs to hire people who do know "todays" game and let them do what's needed to turn this thing around. So no, I don't think they will regress this season as they would have to to end up worst in the league.

Why is the world's gayest sport stuck in the closet?

To me, its not about the sexual preference of a skater, but the fact that some present a colorful, flamboyant, or outwardly feminine performance brings out the fear and bigotry.

Jets Told Refs to Look for Patriots' Push

That was just great scouting and heads up coaching by the Jets. And as a life long Raider fan I'm not really hurting for "The Hoodie."

How the NFL Fleeces Taxpayers

Wow! I just don't have the words to describe what I'm feeling, but I wouldn't call it shock.

Columnist: 'Miserable Jaguars Must Sign Tim Tebow Immediately'

Denver basically pulled out a high school playbook in order to use Tebow, I don't see another team willing to do that no matter how bad they are.

Ray Lewis: Super Bowl Blackout Was No Accident

Ok Ray Ray, so someone killed the lights and got away with it?? Mmmm

Meyer admits mistakes ... sort of

This guy just doesn't get it, its not about his or his staff's leadership or team discipline, or reacting to things after the fact. Its about the type of people he recruits and until that changes he will continue to destroy the reputations of every team he coaches. ...But I guess its ok because he wins titles.

Goodell wants your team to sign Tim Tebow

beaverboard: "Somebody should have been able to stop that Tebow-led unit."

I recall a declining team and coach who lost to appalachian state in 07 did just that in a Bowl game played in the state of FL.

Tim Tebow Forsaken by Jets

NY was a bad situation for him, and I don't see another NFL team issuing a High school type playbook like Denver did, he needs to accept the fact that QB is not an option like many players do, and then he can possibly have a good pro career, and continue be loved and to spread his message.

Stern Would Like to Eliminate Hack-a-Howard

This should not be an issue for Stern, this is a team issue. If the Lakers don't want this strategy used against them then fix it! Its just like in baseball, it your pitching staff cant compete with a hitter and you keep walking him, you dont get to change the strike zone because your pitcher cant beat him.

NFL Might Eliminate Kickoffs

I find myself watching the game I love a little less as time go's on and I think this idea, if implemented, will push me over the edge.

Maryland Moving to Big Ten

@beaverboard: I agree, I remember when Texas, Nebraska, OKL and the "BIG 8" were powerfull, Bo & Woody would have problems with this.

AP source: Yankees tell Reggie to steer clear

RIGHT cixelsyd, No one benefited more from the "steroid era" than the Yankees. They should wear green pinstripes.

Will U-M embrace Fab 5?

There is no way they dig up this horrible skeleton, lets just work on replacing those banners with new ones.

The next round of college football realignments may be under way

If its true that U of Florida is afraid of FSU joining the SEC that seems crazy not to ad a powerfull school if you can. thats why I think the Big 10 is better off with NE than Mizzou & were courting N.D. forever.
