Fire up the grill and grab your foam finger, because college football is back, guys! This glorious time of year allows us to up our beer intake, show some love for our schools, and spend entire Saturdays enjoying the greatest sport on earth.
This weekend, the teams of two legendary football programs will lock up in South Bend Indiana, when Texas visits Notre Dame for a game between teams and coaches with lots of questions that need answering.
One conversation that can't be ignored is the economics of college football. In an age when the NCAA is facing multiple lawsuits challenging its standard of amateurism, conversations about college football must consider the money that the sport generates.
With college football season upon us it is only right that we evaluate some of our favorite players on the field in the only way we know how: in terms of food. I mean, these two things basically go hand-in-hand, right?
Anyone who thinks that a New York District judge's reversal of Tom Brady's suspension was a momentous victory for Brady and the New England Patriots, and, simultaneously, a crushing and humiliating blow to the NFL Commissioner, hasn't been paying attention.
With the NFL's intention to appeal, it appears this story is not over. Opposing fans will use Deflategate as an opportunity to heckle Brady and the Patriots whenever they play their teams.
Tonight is the official kickoff of the college football season and the best teams in the NCAA will battle it out over the next few months. But off the field, a very different kind of battle is still taking place: the question of whether or not college athletes should be paid.
Obviously, Judge Richard Berman is not a die-hard New York football fan or if he is, he was able to put that bias aside. Even if you despise Tom Brady, the overturning of his suspension was the right legal decision.
Every day at Safe Horizon, we move victims from crisis to confidence by providing them with the resources and supports they need. Join me, Miss America and the thousands who have already taken their vow against domestic violence by taking part in our #PutTheNailinIt campaign.
Domestic violence is still a major concern in our society. Change has to start with all of us. I hope you don't wait until the month of October to have this conversation with a loved one. The time is now- well, it should be now.
Forty-eight years ago, Bill MacPhail, then in charge of sports at CBS, signed a deal with the US Tennis Open to carry its tennis matches, men's and women's, on the CBS network. That deal died last year and in 2015 you'll have to watch them on ESPN.
The Colorado Buffaloes come into town for a Thursday night showdown to kickoff what could be a make-or-break year for a man beginning his fourth year as head coach of the Rainbow Warriors. Here are the five big questions to keep in mind heading into the 2015 UH Football season.
Lately, I've been hearing one phrase abused repeatedly, and it's worth a moment's reflection to consider its true meaning. That phrase is "small sample size." I hear this phrase in every broadcast, every hour, before every hard stop for a commercial break.
In a time when headlines focus on athletes' off-the-field behavior, many coaches are moving beyond discussing Xs and Os. They're teaming up with dating abuse experts to create opportunities where teens feel comfortable opening up about issues that directly affect them.
Given research indicating a possible link between football head injuries and Alzheimer's, one would think that the NFL would want to promote Alzheimer's Awareness Month each November.
If we develop young boys into testosterone-fueled, entitled "winners" who succeed by suppressing real feelings and behaving aggressively, we shouldn't be surprised when they act as they have been conditioned to act.
