Jaguars Hire Urban Meyer as Head Coach

The formula for success in the College Football head coaching ranks is 80 percent salesmanship and managing to land the more top recruits than other schools. The 20 percent coaching ability rarely if ever is a factor at that level.

Brooklyn Nets land James Harden

Early in the season I thought if somehow Nash could reel in Irving and to a lesser extent Durant they might be the team to beat. Over the last 2 weeks I developed serious doubts the circus could be controlled. Now I'm certain: they have zero chance of winning a championship.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Many of the places I go, the employees feature the partially dropped face mask look. Hardware store, pizza shop, etc.

Why we follow our "leaders" and not the direction of medical professionals and scientists is crazy: lives could be saved.

Bill just became less evil

Black Monday Arrives for NFL Coaches

future legendary bust that is Trevor Lawrence

Last 2 times I watched Lawrence he was badly outplayed by his counterpart. That being said it is really difficult to judge QBs in college. Most often teams that have No 1 through 3 rated QBs usually also have 2 or 3 O linemen taken early in the first and 2nd rounds. College QBs who look great when given 6 or 7 seconds every play to make a decision require major adjustments when they reach the NFL: many of them never do adjust.
