Coach K has reached yet another mountain top. With another national title (putting his total at 5–along with 2 Olympic gold medals), Mike Krzyzewski certainly has a case to be considered the greatest college coach of all time (yes, even John Wooden may have to recognize Coach K’s accomplishments i...

Alex Rodriguez doesn’t get it. He never has—and I don’t think he ever will. In 2009, A-Rod conned us for the first time after verified reports that he failed what was meant to be an MLB-confidential PED test back in 2003. After the immediate firestorm surrounding the revelations, A-Rod conduc...

Perhaps no league has seen as much change over the past two decades as the National Football League (NFL). Running backs were once franchise cornerstones, but now they cycle through as fast as the Madden video game updates. Defenses used to feature constant, collapsed formations like the 46 to be...

The New York Giants are done. Their two Super Bowl championships in 2007 and 2011 are a distant memory. Their defense is primed for complete deconstruction. Eli Manning may not even be in the plans much longer. And their head coach? The three-time Super Bowl champion, most-likely-future-Hall-of-Fa...

    Alex Rodriguez. Vernon Wells. Mike Hampton. Albert Pujols. Barry Zito. Johan Santana. Ryan Howard. This list could go on and on. These names represent the pitfalls of long-term, big-money contracts in the MLB. For years now, the uncapped league has watched annual salary and year ...

  A couple weeks back, the much-expected NBA lottery reform failed to pass through in the NBA Board of Governors’ meeting. The architects of the reform designed it to take away a high-percentage chance of “awarding” teams with poor records high draft picks. The complex system was, in a ...

Julian Dorey, Senior Writer   For LeBron James, the time is now. At age 29, firmly in the middle of his “other-worldy” prime and coming off a summer that saw him dramatically return to the team and city he left in the dark just four years ago, the clock for the king and his new Big ...

Yasiel Puig’s struggles, Clayton Kershaw’s playoff demise, and Don Mattingly’s poor decisions led to the too-early exit of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals. For a team that had World Series hopes, that is simply unacceptable. With 94 wins in the regular season...

Steve Smith was the greatest Carolina Panther ever. For years, he terrorized corners with his deceptive strength—and he punished every safety who ever dared to cheat up to the line of scrimmage. Through thick and thin, winning or losing, Smith was the only constant. Nearly 850 receptions and 12,000...

The Washington Redskins may have gotten just what the doctor ordered when Robert Griffin III went down with a nasty ankle injury back in week two. No pun intended. With the franchise’s glorified enigma forced to the bench for at least half the season, his foil (and backup) Kirk Cousins has taken the re...

Feb. 6, 2005. The date doesn’t seem so significant. But, boy is it ever. You know why? Because it’s the last time Bill Belichick and Tom Brady hoisted the Lombardi Trophy. Yes, the perennially “great” Patriots teams of the last 15 years haven’t actually won anything in almost 10 years. ...
