D'Angelo Russell Is College Basketball's Smoothest Assassin

The play above happened early in the first half of last week's game between Ohio State and Iowa.

The predicted margin of victory is even higher with my team rankings based on margin of victory at The Power Rank. That's… » 1/12/15 4:59pm 1/12/15 4:59pm

What Do Ohio State Fans Love To Complain About? An Investigation

Loud, drunk neighbor? All you had to do was send a message to 69050 addressed to Brutus, the school's grotesquely deformed… » 1/01/15 2:01pm 1/01/15 2:01pm
