2013 NBA Draft: Alex Len now favored to be No. 1 pick?

Monday, June 24th, 2013

For months the assumption has been that Kentucky center Nerlens Noel would be the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. When the Cleveland Cavaliers won the lottery, that assumption was further solidified, given the team's need of another post presence. But as we creep towards Thursday night's draft, ...

Maryland’s Athletic Department Is A Disaster

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Week Six College Football Roundup: Texas Messed With Itself

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

So Oklahoma won the Red River Shootout 55-17 at the Cotton Bowl. The end of the game featured a completely full OU half of the stadium and a mostly-empty Texas half of the stadium once OU was obviously up for good, which was sometime in the second quarter. I don't know ...
