Nick Saban Tells Alabama Fans Not To Leave Early Because He Is an Arrogant, Awareness-Lacking Hypocrite (Bye Miami Dolphins!)

nicksaban_dolphins_800_471014a

Alabama has dominated college football over the past two and half years, so maybe Nick Saban is getting bored beating up inferior teams.

Now he has decided to go after his own fans.

Last Friday, Alabama suspended the block seating privileges of 20 student organizations who get discounted tickets to games.  The reason for this stems from a radio segment the head coach appeared on the day before, where he complained about fans coming late and leaving early from games: Continue reading

Jets NFL Draft 2013 Preview – The Positioning Draft

goodell_draft

Earlier this week, I put up a gag tweet wondering if I should put out a column mocking the mock drafts.  It was just a joke, but many responded positively towards it.  Why could that be?

Every year, millions of page views are wasted looking at mock drafts that were the product of a ton of wasted time by good sportswriters.  Some sites know more than others, but most will not even come close to predicting even 5% of the first two rounds.  [I guess you can say I’m not a fan…]

It’s not to say there is not some merit to looking at the players and the needs of specific NFL teams, but there just simply is not enough time and expertise available to most writers to research all of college football and know all of the ways NFL teams work – outside of the handful experts spread amongst ESPN, Fox Sports, Yahoo, and a few blogs.

So for the poorly prepared, local blogger, giving all he thinks is necessary to talk about the draft, here is a new plan for the “mock draft” – It’s called the “Positioning Draft.” Continue reading

South Carolina’s DE and possible future Heisman candidate and #1 NFL draft pick, Jadeveon Clowney had a tackle and fumble creation like no other on Tuesday.
