Quality shoes, those Nikes. Kansas State was actually leading top-ranked Oklahoma until Wildcats forward D.J. Johnson had his shoe disintegrate in the middle of a play. It’s still close in the second half, but the Sooners hold a four-point lead.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Swag.
The Rockets’ pick-and-roll defense is apparently, uh, no pick-and-roll defense? At least Corey Brewer got in there and did a swipe. This isn’t as bad as that one time James Harden just sort of froze against the Knicks, but geez.
Just about everyone thinks the Carolina Panthers will win Super Bowl 50. ESPN asked 70 staffers for their predictions and 53 of them chose the Panthers. Eight SI writers out of 10 picked Carolina too. The Panthers opened as 3.5 point favorites and so many people bet on them, that the line swelled to 6 at one point.…
NFL Network’s hours upon days upon weeks of Super Bowl coverage have been brain-choking, though we can’t deny that the meaningless words being spewed from the channel’s personalities are drawing viewers. But, really, how much more is there to be said about tomorrow’s game? Thankfully, this young chap turned up to make…
Look at this shot from Male High School’s Alex Cook to beat St. Xavier.
As much as we recommend it, we know that not everyone will be making a pepperoni cheese loaf monstrosity. For one, ingesting that much dairy can only be a recipe for disaster.
At this point, everyone has heard all those terrifying stories about retired football players’ brains falling apart on them. But years and years of hits add up, and the impacts can stay with you forever. Joe Montana talked to USA Today about what football did to him and it sounds awfully bleak:
Get a load of Matt Steinmetz, a Bay Area radio guy, spewing some colossally dumb shit onto his Twitter feed about Andre Drummond, dunking, free throws, and Playing The Game The Right Way.
Look at this shit.
Two weeks ago, DeMarcus Cousins scored a then-career high 48 points as the Kings beat the Pacers for their fifth straight, and you could almost talk yourself into this misshapen collective of wonky players led by a too-old-for-this-shit coach who doesn’t give a fuck about defense maybe, maybe, coming together to make…
Ole Blancoté went and had himself a perfect Hassan Whiteside game last night; 10 points, 10 boards, and 10 blocks, including this beauty. He came off the bench, but played crucial minutes down the stretch as Miami beat Charlotte.
Liverpool fans planned and executed a 77th minute walkout from today’s game against Sunderland to protest ticket prices getting increases up to £77, and apparently, their team decided to join them in protest, so they laid down and let Sunderland of all teams roar back and tie them 2-2.

The Jim Rome Show is still trudging along, a shadow of its former self ever since Rome’s choice to sign with CBS Sports Radio. CBS Sports Network is simulcasting Rome’s annual week at the Super Bowl’s Radio Row, and here’s some doofus Clone showing up and “singing” something incomprehensible, then talking about…
For the entirety of this EPL season, it’s never been a question if a big club could catch Leicester City and retake the Premier League lead, but which big club would. Eventually, the thinking went, this plucky group of upstarts would turn back into a pumpkin and they’d be eclipsed by the inevitable late charge from…
At some point tomorrow, the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos will play against each other in the Super Bowl. However, a much more widely-contested game, between, oh, every publication, has already started.
