Colin Cowherd Proves He's A Moron

I know that the title of this post states the obvious but once again, Cowherd proves he knows nothing about sports and is a piece of garbage. He proved it when he said Kevin Durant was overrated on that show of his or when he told a caller to shoot himself or when he pulled a stunt to shut down The Big Lead because he is that guy. But he is at it again.

Cam Newton Sought Cash For Commitment

ESPN.com has reported that while Cam Newton was being recruited out of junior college last year, a man claiming to represent Newton was allegedly soliciting a six-figure payment for Newton's signature on a national letter of intent. And now the player that was leading the Auburn Tigers towards a possible national title while being the Heisman Trophy favorite could lose his eligibility.

R.I.P. Sparky Anderson

Today, Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson has passed away. The cause of death was complications from dementia. Anderson managed the Cincinnati Reds from 1970-1978, winning the '75 and '76 World Series, and the Detroit Tigers from 1979-1995, winning the 1984 World Series and becoming the first manager to win the Fall Classic in both leagues. Anderson won a total of 2,194 games as a manager, sixth all time, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000. He was 76 years old.

20th Anniversary of the NBA on NBC

Today marks the 20th anniversary of one of the greatest sports presentations of all time, the NBA on NBC. NBC was arguably the greatest and most successful network TV partner that the NBA ever had. Oh for the good times to come back again. Here are some videos, including the lengendary theme, that stand as a tribute to the NBA on NBC.

Great Moments From Awful Players: Desagana Diop

Desagana Diop, what a legend. Career 3.2 point per game average with a 3.9 rebound per game average. That's what was expected out of him when he was drafted 8th overall in the 2001 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. No, actually not at all. Diop is an awful player that has done nothing in the NBA but actually did some important stuff when in Dallas, such as this stuff of Carmelo Anthony in 2006 that makes Diop the feature of this edition of Great Moments From Awful Players.

2010 MLB Hot Stove: Free Agency Preview

Once Brian Wilson recorded the final out and the San Francisco Giants were crowned campions of baseball, 142 MLB players became free agents. Teams can start signing players on November 5th at midnight. Here, I'll give you the answers to the most critical questions as the MLB Hot Stove 2010-11 edition has begun. 

Randy Moss Is Now A Tennessee Titan

The Tennessee Titans today became the third team that Randy Moss has been a part of in the last two months. And after passing up on him in the 1998 Draft for the legendary Kevin Dyson, who was part of one of the greatest kick returns and one of the greatest tackles in NFL history but was nonetheless a mediocre player, the Titans now have one of the most explosive receivers in the NFL on their roster.

Great Moments From Awful Players: Mark Madsen

I don't care how good Mark Madsen is at dancing. I don't care how well Mark Madsen can speak Spanish. I don't care how good Mark Madsen is at starting chants. Mark Madsen is an awful player and is one of the worst players of all time to win multiple championships.
Now that I'm done hating on Mark Madsen, he could play at least a little basketball. And thus, this edition of Great Moments From Awful Players features the great Mark Madsen as a member of the Timberwolves against the Bucks.

The New York Mets Need To Hire Bobby Valentine

As recently as yesterday, Bobby Valentine was rumored to be the front-runner to be the next manager of the Milwaukee Brewers. But as the Brewers have moved in a different direction and have hired the bench coach of the Angels, Ron Roenicke, Valentine is still a free agent. And the Mets need to hire him.

College Football Week 10 Picks

Who would have thought that the game of the week would feature two Mountain West teams on CBS College Sports Network? Well that is the case this week as the undefeated and #4 ranked TCU Horned Frogs and the similarly undefeated #6 ranked Utah Utes match up in Salt Lake City. Of these two undefeated teams, TCU has the chance at reaching the national title game but needs a big win at a place where they have not yet won since joining the Mountain West. Will the Utes play spoiler or will the Horned Frogs march on towards a possible BCS title game bid? My week 10 college football predictions are next.

JaMarcus Russell Sighting In Washington

So news has come out of Redskins Park that JaMarcus Russell is working out for the team. This is after the late-game benching of Donovan McNabb during last week's loss to Detroit and the epic fail that is Rex Grossman.

The San Francisco Giants Have Won The 2010 World Series

For the first time since 1954, the San Francisco Giants are champions of baseball as they defeated the Texas Rangers 3-1 in Game 5 to take the 2010 World Series Championship.

Randy Moss Waived By The Vikings, Where Will He End Up?

In a shocking move, the Vikings waived Randy Moss today after the loss to the Patriots yesterday on Halloween. And so much for the return of Randy Moss to Minnesota after his trade earlier this season by the Patriots. And where will he go from here?

Great Moments From Awful Players: Brooks Bollinger

If you are a fan of the New York Jets, you know how good Brooks Bollinger is. He made his debut in 2005 when chad Pennington and Jay Fielder both got injured and was so terrific the Jets coaxed Vinny Testaverde out of retirement and was inserted as the starter by the legendary Herm Edwards. Bollinger then "finished the season strong as the starter with a 2-7 record." His next stop was with the Minnesota Vikings where he saw some action in 2007 after the legendary duo of Tarvaris Jackson and Kelly Holcomb and on November 4th where history was made by Adrian Peterson and Antonio Cromartie, Bollinger stole the show in a huge victory for Brad Childress's club. This edition of Great Moments From Awful Players features Brooks Bollinger against the San Diego Chargers.

Jaguars Crush Cowboys 35-17

David Garrard threw for four touchdowns and ran another in in a demolition of the Cowboys. Let's hear what the guys that called the game for CBS, Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, have to say.

Why You Don't Get Smashed Before A Football Game

This guy was hilarious. He was utterly passed out and he struggled to wake up when security came. I never understand why you would get so trashed before a football game that you would pass out in the 3rd quarter.

Great Moments From Awful Players: Drew Stanton

Mixing it up with a football player featured in Great Moments. While Drew Stanton was really good at Michigan State, he has been an awful player in the pros. Playing for the Lions does not help, but Stanton has been a trainwreck. Nonetheless, Great Moments From Awful Players features Drew Stanton to Calvin Johnson on October 17, 2010 against the New York Giants.

Top Ten Tight Ends In The NFL

Over the years, the tight end position has evolved from being primarily an in-line block to a featured part of the passing game. Nowadays, so many tight ends are just as athletic as wide receivers, presenting a considerable matchup problem for defenses.
So who are the top tight ends in the NFL?
