Hey, NCAA: Pay the players or feed your slaves
Blogs

The eventual champion of the 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament may not get a chance to hang a championship banner from its rafters if the Federal Bureau of Investigation wants it that way. Given what we know about the investigation uncovering recruitment violations committed by seemingly every contending college basketball program, 2018 might be a repeat of 2013. If you remember, Louisville emerged from March Madness as champion that year only to have that championship vacated for paying escorts to...

The NFC road to the Super Bowl will go through Philadelphia The Eagles (8-1) have been fantastic and should end up the top playoff seed in the NFC.
