  • How Les Miles went from a championship to fired at LSU

    The football culture at Louisiana State University is both a beautiful and terrible thing, perpetually cycling between extremes. The number of ways in which LSU mishandled Miles in the past 10 months is staggering. The backlash was severe enough that the firing was halted at almost literally the last minute – Miles’ job was saved during the regular-season finale against Texas A&M.

  • FIFA disbands racism task force ahead of World Cup in Russia

  • The Man Who (Practically) Owns NHRA Top Fuel and Funny Car

    If you’ve bought a battery charger for your car at Walmart or Pep Boys or most anywhere else, you know where Don Schumacher made his money – Schumacher Electric, the world’s largest manufacturer of chargers. It’s what Schumacher does for fun – and profit, for that matter – that we’re addressing here: If you watched the NHRA drag racing coverage from Gateway Motorsports Park just east of St. Louis this past weekend, the man in the bright red shirt, standing there at the starting line, was downright ever-present during the Top Fuel and Funny Car eliminations.

  • Darren Sproles' TD from Wentz set to Sonic the Hedgehog music

    It may be thanks to Vice President Joe Biden that we're all aboard the Wentz Wagon. Biden may have coined the term and Barack Obama made it big. Now, Biden has tweeted at Wentz after the Eagles' rookie led the Birds to a 3-0 start. Philadelphia is a tad giddy. Biden's tweet read: You may have missed it, but when Biden was at the Eagles' week 1 game against the Browns, the Veep told head coach Doug Pederson he'd like to suit up and play. "I wish I was good enough to be out there in a different role," Biden said. "You want to put some pads on?" Pederson asks. "I can go get some." "I did that through college," Biden responds. "I dreamed about it." Biden comes in about 50 seconds into the below video.

  • Four teams that would make sense for Jacob Trouba

    The big NHL news over the weekend came when the agent for Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba announced on Saturday night that his client, still unsigned as a restricted free agent, is requesting a trade from the team so he can put himself into a better position to fully develop as a player. The Jets responded by saying that they are working to resolve the matter but are going to operate with the team’s best long-term interests in mind, and that they still view Trouba as a long-term piece of their team. As we have seen over the past year, trade requests don’t always turn into a trade, even in situations where the player-team relationship seemed beyond repair as was the case with Jonathan Drouin and the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Anaheim Ducks: The Ducks would be an interesting spot because it’s not like they need an upgrade on their blue line, because it’s already a pretty good group.
