The Seminoles, in an effort to “to continue to find ways to connect our fans and the players they support,” opened […]

Top Surprise College Sports Scholarship Celebrations

Top Surprise College Sports Scholarship Celebrations

As a communications guy, I love it. Emotional. Real-time. Immensely shareable. As a sports fan, I love it even more.

Paul Finebaum calls Jadeveon Clowney ‘a joke’

The hype around Jadeveon Clowney heading into this season was off the charts. Can you really blame anyone? Clowney’s been a freak that we’ve followed on this blog long before he stepped foot in Columbia, South Carolina.
