With egg on face, Colin Cowherd explains commentators need to be interesting but not correct

Colin Cowherd called Clemson a fraud. Dabo Swinney obviously didn’t take too kindly to that and addressed the slight in his post game conference. He went as far to call Cowherd a fraud 🔥🔥🔥 ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4W0bGbl3YY&feature=youtu.be&t=13s Swinney calling out Cowherd wasn’t something that could be ignored and hence, Cowherd addressed it on his show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z61DY-qythY&feature=youtu.be&t=24s Here […]

Kansas State’s game-winning touchdown was the most Bill Snyder formation ever

Kansas State beat Texas A&M 33-28 last night in the Definitely a Pyramid Scheme Bowl. The deciding touchdown was this 1-yard run, which came midway through the 4th quarter. What was that? I mean, it’s a obviously QB sneak, but what do you call that formation? Looking at the photo up top, there aren’t even any […]

Conference championship games suck and should be replaced by an 8-team playoff

Theoretically, conference championship games should be awesome. In a 27-hour period, you’re essentially assured four top 25 games that have major College Football Playoff implications. Should be fun, right? Except it’s definitely not and historically, that’s always been the case. We’ll get into that in just a minute, but I’m guessing many of you awesome […]

The Electoral map of football: The NFL vs. college football

Politics can be very similar to sports in that where you were born, grew up, or live can have a huge effect on your personal leanings. Here in the California Bay Area, the political leanings are very liberal and in terms of fandom, the NFL towers over college football. That’s despite three D1 programs, two […]

What is the best sports month of the year?

We’re in the middle of October, a month that many of us peg as the best sports month of the calendar year. With that in mind, we thought we’d ask our editors for their thoughts on what’s the best month of the year, in terms of sports. Surprisingly, our answers covered the majority of the months […]

Bill Simmons blasted the San Diego Chargers stadium ballot measure

In the first trailer for Any Given Wednesday, Bill Simmons trotted out his new ability to swear on HBO by proclaiming “I believe that Billionaires should pay for their own fucking football stadiums.” On last night’s episode, Simmons drilled down on that subject further as he strongly made the case why the upcoming ballot measure for a […]

Rice’s marching band referenced Baylor sexual assault scandal in halftime performance

Rice’s marching band showed iffy judgment on this one. There are two ways to look at this. Either Rice’s notoriously feisty marching band audaciously called out an in-state rival by referencing the ugly sexual assault scandal surrounding Baylor’s mishandling of investigating alleged sexual assaults by multiple members of the team. That’s probably putting Baylor’s issues […]

10 reasons why college football is better than the NFL

The NFL is king but for many it’s not even the best source of entertainment even for football. We’re a few days out from the first college football weekend which has quite a sexy lineup of games. I’m terribly excited although most of my friends think I’m some type of weirdo for loving college football […]

Getting to know Last Chance U’s protagonist, Brittany Wagner

At first glance, Netflix’s Last Chance U has the look and feel of most all-access football documentaries. However, the show has received much acclaim for its focus on off-the-field issues, particularly the players’ academics and was recently renewed for a second season. I gave a very favorable review to Netflix’s first foray into a sports […]

We asked the editors of The Comeback to share the movie scene they found to be the most preposterous and unforgivable. David Rogers – D2: The Mighty Ducks (knuckle-puck) As a […]

TCB Roundtable: What type of pro athlete would you be?

With the NFL draft last weekend, this got us to thinking about what type of professional athlete would you want to be?

TCB Roundtable: Which annual U.S. event would you attend?

Brandon Marshall uses teddy bears to show his appreciation for Ryan Fitzpatrick

The Jets and Ryan Fitzpatrick are reportedly getting closer to a parting of ways (at least they’re posturing this outcome). You would imagine this is disappointing  news for Jets fans and players coming off a surprise 10-6 season which saw Fitzpatrick break the franchise touchdown record. Brandon Marshall obviously wasn’t too pleased and rather than utilizing […]

When the robot uprising goes down, I’m blaming this asshole

Making its way across the internet is a new video put out by Boston Dynamics, a Google owned company that makes sweet ass robots. In said video, we see the new version of Atlas (their newest and most advanced robot…that we know of) marching down a snowy hill like a badass as if it’s about […]

After game of his life, Larry Fitzgerald sends his well wishes to Chris Mortensen

In the moments after the Cardinals absolutely bonkers overtime win over the Packers, Larry Fitzgerald took a moment to send this tremendously classy message to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. If you’re unaware, Mortensen was diagnosed with stage IV throat cancer and announced he’ll be stepping away from ESPN. While that’s deflating, it’s refreshing to hear Fitzgerald send […]
