Leonard Fournette isn’t done putting defenders in their place.
Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett is an absolute magician. Here he avoids three Penn State defenders surrounding him in the backfield and gets 19 yards in a play that looked so impossible officials decided to review it (and upheld the results after getting a second look).
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Sorry for the tardiness, we’ve had our hands full.
Colorado is in the midst of its best season in years, earning its way to bowl eligibility today with a 10-5 win over the once-seventh-ranked Stanford Cardinal. But even with its inexplicable 6-2 record, the Buffaloes still showed some of that haplessness that was a hallmark of the program for a decade—as, while…
Brian Jones failed out of the NFL due to injury—he even filed, and lost, a lawsuit over it—but don’t tell him that the sport of football needs rules to protect players’ long-term health. The CBS college football analyst alternately demanded players grow eyes in the back of their head or barked “KEEP YOUR HEAD ON A…
ESPN’s weekly native advertising broadcast known as College GameDay set its temporary roots in Tuscaloosa today for the big aTm-Bama game. People brought signs, yes, and they also had signs in Lexington where SEC Nation was broadcasting its superior program.
Draymond “The Human Vasectomy” Green, whose reputation is rooted in his kicking ability as much as it is his actual basketball skills, is back at the martial arts-ing, even in preseason. Here he is last night against the Blazers, leveling his big foot toward Allen Crabbe:
Watch this one all the way through.
The Sacramento Kings, a failed state of an NBA team run by a clueless owner, will be bad this year, despite internal expectations that they’ll make the playoffs. One of the reasons why they could actually improve this season is because their new coach Dave Joerger seems to have a clue, unlike George Karl, who helmed…
Roger Goodell is not having a great week. He’s off in the U.K. promoting the NFL’s sub-par football product by way of a team whose kicker was revealed this week to have written “I abused my wife” in journal entries from 2013.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Let’s go.
What I do at the middle school is generously called cross country coaching. To the untrained eye, our program looks a lot like goofing around, like BS, like a waste of time. I’m pretty lucky to be able to pull this off.
British journalist: “Pep, do you think your failure to beat the best team in the world a couple months into you tenure at a brand new club means you might consider throwing away the tactical philosophy that has made you arguably the greatest, most successful coach of your generation?”
It’s almost winter, and that means it’s almost time for our ursine friends to begin hibernating. But before packing it in for a few months, each bear needs to achieve a status of total comfort and total fatness.
As far as outright winners go, lobs might be the least exhilarating way to terminate a point of tennis. You plop the tennis ball high into the air, way out of your opponent’s reach, and then it falls way back down into the court, hooray. You can respect the lob on a technical level—an especially deft placement, or an…
