A Three-Man Front Is A Late-Game Defensive Formation For Suckers

The weekend, as I watched the absurd denouement of the Northwestern-Michigan game, something struck me as familiar — beyond the now-routine bumblefuckery that inspires the Wildcats to turn fourth-quarter leads into triple-overtime losses. No, it wasn't simply that Michigan drove in the dregs of game clock to kick the… » 11/20/13 8:09pm 11/20/13 8:09pm

Looking To Burn $5,000? The University Of Colorado Has You Covered

Right now on something called Higher Ed Surplus—a division of Public Surplus, which is like eBay for public agencies looking to get rid of their shit—the University of Colorado is auctioning off its 16-year-old basketball (and volleyball) court for the low, low price of $5,000.

Colorado May Consider Bake Sale In Order To Buy Out Coach

Colorado's football team stinks and no one really cares for head coach Dan Hawkins, but the usual solution—throwing money at the problem—just isn't going to work this time. They don't have any money left to throw. » 11/19/09 3:00pm 11/19/09 3:00pm
