When it comes to sports every college talks about having spirit. However, there are few that take it as seriously as the federal service academies.

And of course the voicemail box filled up pretty quick.

The fallout for Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle seems to be ongoing now that the video of him acting like a complete idiot has been released to the general public.

Ohio State Lineman Patrick Elflein Zings Back-Up QB Cordale Jones Over Infamous Tweet For Halloween

Halloween has to be one of the best holidays of the year. Not only do you get to dress up and act like someone else for a day, but as a kid you get lots of free candy and adults get to go to parties where almost every female costume is a 'slutty' this or a 'naughty' that.

It's also a good time to have fun with people--like Ohio State offensive lineman Pat Elfein decided to have with back-up quarterback Cordale Jones and his infamous 'play school' tweet.
