As of 2:40 pm ET today, Wikipedia's Brady Hoke entry begins as follows:

Brady Patrick Hoke (born November 3, 1958) is the former head football coach of the Michigan Wolverines football team, where he has served until the eight game of the 2014 season.

No mention of this anywhere else that I've seen. Looks like another temporary WP hoax, this one self-fulfilling perhaps.

When you sack the backup Quarterback while losing by 25 points, you probably shouldn't celebrate.

Especially if you then injure yourself doing so.

That's the second NFL player to go down with a leaping celebration. You'd think they'd learn...

There was a funny moment in West Ham's 2-1 shocker over Man City. Enner Valencia flew into the crowd after making the pass that led to the Hammers' first goal by Morgan Amalfitano. This was the Man City end, so Valencia was caught by their fans several rows deep. Amalfitano decided to hop the boards and join him, putting his hands on two of those fans to get his balance. This was not well-received by the fans.

In other news, is this really kick-it-long-and-pray West Ham?

At least we won't have to listen to another Snoop weed-induced rant about Todd Haley and the Steeler offense this week.

West Ham. The Academy is back.

The part of the academy that agreed deals for Enner Valencia and Sakho for the same amount that Liverpool paid for Balotelli.

At least when Stephen Tulloch did it, the Lions won the game...
