The day will come where eight college teams will make the playoffs. I'm patient. I've waited my whole life for a college football playoff since I started watching the sport 45 years ago. I always joked there would be peace in the Middle East before a college playoff. I was wrong.
I would suggest that the NFL demand full copies of the investigation and the judge's rulings and demands that Winston answer questions posed by NFL lawyers before it authorizes the presence of Jameis Winston in the 2015 draft.
Black Monday in the NFL saw four more franchises fire their head coaches along with two general managers. Clearly there are situations where a head coach may have lost the ability to motivate his team or lost control of how to fix a losing situation and a change is needed. History shows however that stability at the coaching level is a key to success.
The question Iggles fans should be asking shouldn't be who won the power struggle? It should be why does a power struggle exist at all?
As years go, 2014 was an interesting one in the sports world. Some might characterize it as depressing while others may look back on it as exhilarating. Whatever the case may be we know that at some point in the future we will look back on the year 2014 with nostalgia.
Michigan will love Harbaugh. He has a strong and consistent plan for how to build a program. He will win over parents and players and be a formidable recruiter. He will attract great assistant coaches. He loves his alma mater and will represent it well.
This article employs original and borrowed statistics to paint a future picture in which others can draw upon to predict the longevity and future success of Miami Dolphins' head coach Joe Philbin.
This year, Urban Outfitters sold a "vintage" Kent State sweatshirt tastefully splattered with red paint while Donald Sterling's racial comments cost him his NBA franchise. It's been a raucous year in the public arena, expressed perfectly by a parade of PR blunders that is as impressive in scope as it is in sheer absurdity.
Hire like the big companies. GUARANTEED to get ownership EXACTLY what they want most.
All sports, like life itself, involve risks. Unless we intend to keep our children by our sides, safe from the potential of injury, growing up entails dangers to life and limb.
If we can learn to embrace the rose and see the perfection of it's life and death, then why can't we learn to see each other in the same way? None of us are perfect, and that is clear in every way.
One thing we probably should do with such an elaborate gift is to break it down to what an apples to apples gift might look like if a similar "boss" or leader wanted to show holiday generosity to his employees out of his or her pocket.
For the Dolphins, Sunday was a chilling reminder of a talented and promising team's inability to finish down the stretch, by 1) losing their season-finale, 2) in front of its home crowd, 3) to another pitiful New York Jets team and 4) for the second December in a row.
This was a Rich Kotite type of a season, punctuated by mistakes, turnovers, missed opportunities and, above all, losses. Will the Jets fly again? There is some reason for hope, but a lot of patience will be required first.
Are the people behind these PR blunders stupid? Probably not. But they are rushed, thoughtless and possibly clueless as well. We would like to assume that such insensitivity is unintentional, although heartless intent to gain attraction is always a remote (we hope) possibility.
All three current topics that have placed the National Football League at the center stage of social debate in the United States -- violence against women (Ray Rice incident); abuse of children (Adrian Peterson incident); and concussions -- furnish yet further manifestation of the growing presence of what I have termed the "discourse of compassion" that has altered what is morally acceptable behavior in the United States.
