75-Yard Miracle Play Ruined By Failed Two-Point Conversion

This is perhaps the greatest college football play any of us have ever seen, and it was all for naught as Central Michigan went for two, and a 36-point comeback, and failed.

Jason Whitlock Blows A Dog Whistle To America's Most Dangerous Racists

Jason Whitlock is many things, all of which have been commented on extensively on this site. But I'm not here to revisit old grievances. I don't even really have much of a grievance.
