The rampaging sexual assault case at LSU should surprise no one, and indeed it doesn't shock those who know anything about big time college athletics. History shows those who claim assault are shoved to the shadows and usually demonized. The greater part of this is the coverup, and it's always been helped by those who should be bexposing it. Pete Rose & Jim Gray are doing the "Apology Tour" dance again, but this time the Hall of Fame road closes forever for Charlie Hustle.
COVID19 has destroyed the normal ebb and flow of competition in both college and high school football, and with so many conferences not playing, so many schools sitting out, and so many players on the bench, is this truly a legitimate season for championships? How will COVID-19 really affect high schoolers heading for college, and what will it do to 2021 college football rosters and beyond?
Healthcare workers under siege, dangerously funny Rand Paul, laughable golf GOAT, UFC Golf. Seriously????mediamaster2020-11-17T17:45:29+00:00
Excellent news about a vaccine for COVID-19, tempered by yet another blowhard bluster of buffoonery from a politician, this time "Dr." Rand Paul, who you wouldn't want fixing a hangnail. This as healthcare workers are quitting in record numbers, overworked and near suicidal. There's a logical and easy way to avoid being part of the problem in fixing the current rift in America, and that's not being a teacher using social media to hammer away at Donald Trump.
COVID19 has created that "new normal" for the Thanksgiving holiday everyone must learn to deal with, or else. To that end, the NFL must change with tradition and reschedule their annual holiday games. Dr. Anthony Fauci's script has rarely wavered for months, and still a good part of America doesn't seem to give a damn. Donald Trump has given oxygen to, and will leave, in his wake, a potentially dangerous cult.
The COVID19 scenario continues as Trump's infection spreads snares more than 100 new cases, high school kids still at risk, when will YOU feel safe going back to sports?, the "Jeopardy Jennings Dilemma", Tommy Tuberville proves you don't have to be smart to be a college football coach OR an elected official, and the single greatest "food felony", hands down.
It's a fair question. With COVID19 changing rosters, keeping entire programs off the field, and the competitive balance changed, are the 2020 NFL and CFB seasons really legitimate?
The NHL beat COVID19 for one shortened season, but what are they going to do now? Teams are shifting players like socks at the moment, and some teams are getting left out. Tampa Bay wins the Stanley Cup, but will it really do anything to help hockey in the USA? And why hockey players are better at putting game first and egos second.
the single best moment from the NFL COVID19 season, a few thoughts on a 2020 World Series that does indeed feature the best teams in MLB, more than a few words on the latest attack on Dr. Anthony Fauci, and another reason why Abe Lincoln was so correct when he said you could believe everything you see and read on the Internet.
Comments from the NFL and some of their coaches must conclude this sport is about as concerned with the pandemic's effect on their players as they were about concussions, and we all know how that ended. College football, meantime, has backed itself into a corner from which there is no COVID19 escape.
Let's get busy then with stories about the single greatest Facebook trap we all wind up falling into, why James Bond must never be female, (anything Bond makes for excellent debate, of course), the NFL still reaping the results of their decision to treat COVID19 like the common cold, a challenge to every baseball fan to prove why Tampa Bay shouldn't be the new "America's Team"
