    Core Hydration Classic Resilts. Biles wins All Around, Vault and Floor. Takes second on Bars and Beam. Jones nearly as impressive, taking second in the All Around and Vault, first on Bars, and fourth on both Beam and Floor. Those two are about as close to locks for the team as there can be at...

    Truly, she deserves better. But even her mustering the will to be elite competition ready after eight years away is utterly heroic in my eyes. Really pulling for her to get the chance to show up and show out.

    College Football: Pac-12 Conference

    And so the Pac-12 goes out with a whimper. I mean, as much of a whimper as playing for a National Championship in the final game of the season can be. Now the team that was caught cheating, punished for cheating, and somehow turned that punishment into an “us versus them” triumph over...

    College Football: Pac-12 Conference

    Pac-12 gets to live on for another week. I can think of no greater poetic end to this realignment travesty than the Huskies bringing back one last National Title to the Conference of Champions. Well, maybe if it was the Cougars or Beavers, but this’ll do. Hopefully when all the conferences...

    This Browns game has all the makings of a trap game to me. After the big win over Dallas, Niners hitting the road to Cleveland with the Browns coming off their bye trying to bounce back from an awful loss to their divisional rival. Couple that with rain in the forecast, and it sets up one of...

    He means Mac Jones in SF would be playing like Purdy … when he tore his UCL. If this argument had any merit, Josh Johnson would be the reigning Super Bowl MVP.

    Among everything else, I was happy to see Juice get his first TD of the season. While I know it’s not necessarily his role, I think it’s backbreaking for the Niners to remind teams that, yes, their smashmouth 90s-era FB is capable of dump-off passes for TDs too.
