An Actual Video Of 6'7", 410 lbs. Motekiai Langi Playing "Football"

Yesterday I wrote that there was no video available of BYU's newest recruit, Motekiai Langi, from the island nation of Tonga. As it turns out there is a very short video of Langi playing something resembling football at a Tuhulu football camp. It doesn't show much, but the "light on his feet" comment certainly is… » 2/05/15 7:57pm 2/05/15 7:57pm

Report: Army Plied Football Recruits With Alcohol, Women

Army has only had one winning college football season since 1996, and now they're having problems off the field too.

On Jim Ross's podcast yesterday, Goldberg shared stories of how he ended up a… » 5/22/14 11:35am 5/22/14 11:35am

High on the list of myths thrown out as excuses to delay or prevent the advent of pay-for-play is that the price-fixing engaged in by the 351 schools in Division 1, and especially the now 128 schools in FBS who play football, is necessary to ensure competitive balance across the sport. » 5/15/14 2:16pm 5/15/14 2:16pm

UGA Is Sending Recruits Hand-Drawn Portraits

Recruiting has always been cutthroat, but these days, you really have to do something unique to stand out from the crowd of suitors. (Even if that something is nothing at all.)
