The 10 Best Sports Talk Radio Hosts in the Country
Over the last two decades, sports talk radio has burrowed its way into mainstream media. For better or worse, many of these guys have, are, or will be making millions informing, entertaining, and unfortunately antagonizing you, I, and everyone else willing to tune into any or all of them on a daily basis. While the majority of them are covering much of the same things, most do it in very different and unique ways. Some have partners, others work amidst a group, and a select few rely nearly ...

Coach Has Baby Between Games
Imagine if you will that you are the coach of a girl's basketball team and that you are pregnant. (Gentlemen, you will have to work your imagination a little bit harder.) Now imagine that your team has made it to the playoffs somewhere around your due date. Do you have that so far? What would you do? I think the sensible answer would be to let your assistant coach take over the team if you went into labor, but that's crazy talk.

We've all seen the "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service" signs that adorn businesses all over the country, but could "Pull Your Pants Up or Get Out" be about to replace them?

Kickoff changes on the way
New Rule Changes for the NFL on the Way
While the jury is out as to the NFL lockout, at least NFL fans can spend some time thinking about some key rules changes that were just made.

NFL Lockout: He Said, He Said
The NFL and the players association are now engaging in a game of he said, he said. Letters that are now being made public are being sent back and forth between the league and the players association (no longer an organized union).

Butler and VCU: Serving and Stampeding Towards Houston
Crushing UTEP and then outlasting Murray State, Syracuse, Kansas State, and Michigan State while coming within 2 points (and a few inches) of a national championship as a 5 seed is soooo last year. If jaw-dropping drama were a multi-course meal elaborately served in a mansion, there's no more appropriately named team in all of college athletics than Butler.

Can Clemson, UAB, USC, and VCU dispense with higher seeds after they've dispensed with each other?
Will the Play-Ins Play On?
Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill of ZZ Top will become Gillette spokesmen before a 16 seed beats a 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The first-round pee-on battles between North Carolina-Ashville and Arkansas Little Rock, and Texas-San Antonio and Alabama State will only determine which corpses get the flowers.

What a d-bag
Cam Newton: Hi World, It’s “Me” Again
In a shocking development, Cam Newton managed to alienate a handful of NFL executives recently at the league's annual cattle call combine. Between bench presses, wind sprints, various cone drills, and jump tests he found time to refer to himself in the third person three times, express delight in all "he'd" accomplished during the year he'd spent at Auburn and anoint himself as an "entertainer" and "icon" above all. I'd like to initially ...
