How Michael Sam made Jason Collins matter

Monday, February 10th, 2014

When everyone made a tremendous to-do about NBA player Jason Collins coming out of the closet last year, my reaction was more along the lines of "whoop-de-doo." And not for the reasons you are probably assuming. From my perspective, Collins was not all that different from John Amaechi, another basketball player ...

New Gary Pinkel website includes not-so-new video

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

HOW STOKED ARE YOU GUYS FOR THE LAUNCH OF GARYPINKEL.COM? Whoa. I'm so excited that I forgot I was typing in caps lock.

Bowl Preview: Insight Bowl

Monday, December 27th, 2010

(12) Missouri (10-2) vs. Iowa (7-5) (+3) I miss the Insight Bowl. It's such a crap bowl game, but I miss it. Indiana's appearance there against Oklahoma State seems like it was eons ago instead of three years, and the Hoosiers got their asses kicked that night too. That's how it ...

Record after week 10: 107-50 (78-76-3 ATS) 12 pm ET Miami (6-3) at Georgia Tech (5-4) (+3) Both teams have not played even close to expectations. Both teams lost their stud quarterback recently. Miami's offense sputters easily. Georgia Tech's defense is terrible. What's a gambler to do? Stay the hell away from this ...

Week 10 College Football Picks

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Record after week nine: 96-44 (69-68-3 ATS) 12 pm ET Illinois (5-3) at Michigan (5-3) (-3) If only Michigan could play defense, we might have something more substantial to talk about. Worse, their future prospects don't look any better on that side of the ball, nor is there any kind of help for ...
