Buckeye's "Wipe The Field" Boast Is The Future Of FBS Shit-Talk

The biggest stones in college football today belong to Evan Spencer, who plays receiver for Ohio State and who just got his name written on wipeboards across the Midwest today.

Alabama Fan Updates Oregon Fans' T-Shirts

Last month, as Oregon was rolling through the Pac-12, some enterprising UO students turned fans' chants of "We Want Bama" into a T-shirt. The chants and the shirts looked ahead to a possible matchup with the Crimson Tide in the BCS title game. With those plans now on hold after last night, a 'Bama fan came up with an… » 11/08/13 3:09pm 11/08/13 3:09pm

Stanford-Cal Delayed 15 Minutes As Fight Results In Three Coaches Being…

A solid Pac-12 conference season came crashing down last night as the Cal Bears found themselves on the wrong end of a 83-70 thrashing by rival Stanford.

Arizona's Three Losses Are The Worst Three Losses In College Football

Candidate for most crud-awful season in football this year: the Arizona Wildcats. Started 3-0, including handsome win over Oklahoma State team to get expectations buzzing. The Associated Press ranked the Cats for the first time since 2010. Next came a 56-0 paste job of South Carolina State. Oats were being felt. » 10/06/12 8:49pm 10/06/12 8:49pm

Student-Athletes To Be Slightly Less Exploited, At Least In California

We learned, from Taylor Branch's history, that the term "student-athlete" only arose as a (successful) attempt by the NCAA to avoid having to pay workman's comp to injured players. A Colorado football player, killed by a head injury in the '50s, wasn't entitled to a thing from the NCAA—no health care, no death… » 8/24/12 11:10am 8/24/12 11:10am

Even After Winning The Super Bowl, Victor Cruz Still Gets Mistaken For…

Despite what's suggested by ESPN's graphic, that's not Stanford forward Josh Huestis. It's actually New York Giants breakout star Victor Cruz, who took in last night's NIT semifinal at Madison Square Garden. This is not, sadly, an anomalous mistake. Even after scoring a touchdown in Super Bowl 46, Victor Cruz remains… » 3/28/12 9:00am 3/28/12 9:00am
