The rumor mill spiked Wednesday with talk that Texas Longhorns Head Coach Mack Brown is going to step down and soon to be former Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban is taking over. It didn't take long for all parties involved to say that the rumors were absolutely false--which of course only sparks further rumor and even more speculation.
So I can't help but wonder what folks in Houston are going to think when they see Nick Saban walking through the airport.
Any other season this would have just been one of the many dunks Kobe Bryant threw down, but since he's coming back from a pretty serious injury at the twilight of his career--well, it's kinda special.
Throughout the baseball season we heard too many reports about umpires admitting they messed up the next day. It's happened too many times during the current NFL season too. How about the NBA season? Can it escape the gaffes that the other major sports have had?
Indiana's Lance Stephenson would say no after Wednesday night's game against the Miami Heat.
ESPN sometimes seems like it is going the way of MTV. Kids, back in the day MTV used to be all about music and showed nothing but music videos all day and every day. They did have the occasional game show, but for the most part the network was all about music.
ESPN is still primarily about sports, but that is thanks to broadcasting games and SportsCenter. It's when they interview people that things turn away from sports.
Rumor has it that Alabama football team is pretty good. I suppose if you win three of the last BCS national championships you should at least be referred to as good, right? This bowl season they are not playing for a national championship (must feel strange for the seniors); instead they will be facing off against Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl.
With the game still weeks away they have already tied a record.
Emmitt Smith is a living legend in the state of Texas. Shocker, right? The man was only an integral part of three Super Bowl wins and is the career rushing leader for the NFL. If that wasn't enough I believe he won that dancing reality show too.
So when he calls out his former team's defense people listen (or read I guess since he did it on Twitter).
Don't you just love it when grown men start sniping at each other in the media? First it was Adrian Peterson on Sunday with a few words about the officiating and the behavior of some of the Baltimore Ravens fans. Now Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh is chiming in. In case you missed the game it was snowing quite a bit.
I guess some of the Baltimore fans decided to use the Vikings players for target practice.
