Coach Who Made $850,000 Last Year Says His Unpaid Players Are Required To Donate $50 To Program

Coach Who Made $850,000 Last Year Says His Unpaid Players Are Required To Donate $50 To Program

At a post-workout press conference earlier this week, Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns coach Billy Napier announced a rather odd initiative for the members of his football team. Napier said that, starting this year, all scholarship members of the team will be required to donate a minimum of $50 to the Ragin’ Cajun Athletic Foundation.

That seems like a punitive rule to enforce on a group of...

Dammit, DeMarcus Cousins Tore His ACL [Update]

After suffering in obscurity on the worst team in pro sports for seven years, getting free from the mess in Sacramento only to tear his Achilles midway through a career season on a playoff-bound squad with another star, and seeing his chance at a ring go up in smoke thanks to a string of brutal injuries , DeMarcus Cousins has once again been the victim of some terrible luck.

Cousins was...

Winning Triathletes DQ'd From Olympic Test Event For Crossing Finish Line Hand-In-Hand

British triathletes Jess Learmonth and Georgia Taylor-Brown took the top two spots of the podium at a heat-shortened triathlon in Tokyo on Thursday, raising their hands together as they snapped the finishing tape. Their shared victory did not last long, however, as the haters over at the International Triathlon Union voided their results and gave the gold medal to a woman who finished 11...

Christian Pulisic Belongs

Christian Pulisic Belongs

Former Wonderteen Christian Pulisic has been a very good soccer player at close to the highest level in the world for three-and-a-half seasons, playing admirably in huge games against Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and other top-tier clubs. He is no longer a prospect, and he hasn’t been one for years .

And yet, because he is treading so far out into as-yet untested waters for an American field...

Jim Harbaugh And Luke Fickell Bicker About The James Hudson Transfer Saga

Jim Harbaugh And Luke Fickell Bicker About The James Hudson Transfer Saga

Of all the NCAA’s heavy-handed mechanisms of controlling players, the transfer portal is among the most confusing. The 2018 opening of the portal theoretically makes it easier for athletes to switch schools, though it has done little to actually make things smoother for transferring players, which makes sense since it’s an incremental reform from the fundamentally broken organization. Take...

As A Formerly Decent Middle School Athlete, I Can Relate To This 13-Year-Old Who Won The European Diving Championships

As A Formerly Decent Middle School Athlete, I Can Relate To This 13-Year-Old Who Won The European Diving Championships

This week in Ukrainian diving news: 13-year-old diving prodigy Oleksii Sereda has captured gold in the 10-meter European Diving Championships in Kiev, a historic feat I would definitely be significantly more impressed with if I too had not enjoyed athletic success as a 13-year-old. Sereda finished fourth at the world championships in July, which is the same place that the Sutter Miners Eighth...

Jim Irsay Reveals That Andrew Luck Is Suffering From An Issue With His "Small Little Bone"

Jim Irsay Reveals That Andrew Luck Is Suffering From An Issue With His "Small Little Bone"

In an unwelcome throwback to offseasons past, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been largely absent from most team offseason practices and workouts as he has dealt with a lingering injury. This time, the problem is not his chronically borked throwing shoulder, but rather a left calf strain that he suffered in late April.

In May, Colts head coach Frank Reich described the injury...

Mike Perry's Nose Was Thoroughly Fucked Up By A Knee

Mike Perry's Nose Was Thoroughly Fucked Up By A Knee

Vicente Luque took a split decision over Mike Perry in Saturday’s UFC card in Uruguay, and the aftermath to the loser’s face was brutal. The turning point of the match was when Luque split Perry’s guard with a jumping right knee and crushed Perry’s nose.

Perry took the fight to the ground after the knee to the schnoz, but it didn’t get better for him. As Luque squeezed his head in an...

Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi, Who Lied His Way Into A Browns Tryout, Scored A Return Touchdown In His NFL Debut

Late in Cleveland’s preseason win over Washington last night, rookie return specialist Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi fielded a punt and zipped mostly untouched, 86 yards, all the way to the opposite end zone. Despite the inherent meaninglessness of the game and the already gaudy scoreline, Sheehy-Guiseppi’s Browns teammates dogpiled him and celebrated like they’d just scored in a playoff game. Even...

Mitchie Brusco Lands First-Ever 1260 In Skateboarding Competition

Mitchie Brusco Lands First-Ever 1260 In Skateboarding Competition

At the 1999 X Games in San Francisco, Tony Hawk became the first person in competitive skateboarding history to land a 900, two-and-a-half rotations. It took 20 years, but someone’s added another 360 degrees. At last week’s X Games in Minneapolis, 22-year-old Mitchie Brusco pulled off the first 1260 in skating history.

Brusco was already one of two people ever to make three full turns for a...

Carmelo Anthony Can't Even Get A Gig On A Depleted Team USA

Carmelo Anthony Can't Even Get A Gig On A Depleted Team USA

All poor Carmelo Anthony wants to do is play basketball, for whoever will have him. He recently went on ESPN to talk about his abrupt exit from the Rockets and then the NBA, and though he did not quite seem to grapple with Houston’s on-court case for getting rid of him, it is still bizarre that he has gone from integral part of Oklahoma City’s playoff rotation to untouchable castoff in 16...

Steve Smith Had Some Rude Fantasy Football Questions For Panthers Receiver D.J. Moore

Steve Smith has never been shy about speaking his mind to rivals , colleagues , fans , or really anyone else who happens to be nearby. Amazon’s All Or Nothing provides a perfect example of the former Carolina Panthers receiver and current NFL Network analyst being a hilarious trash talker.

The latest season of the show, which came out last month, chronicled the Panthers’ 2018 season, and the...

Texas Rangers Investigating Family's Claims Of Racist Harassment At Ballpark

Over the weekend, Texas Rangers fan Jessica Romero wrote a Facebook post where she said a shithead at the ballpark repeatedly harassed her and her family while they were at Saturday’s game. She says the man—seen below ruining their family photo—loudly complained about the Romeros sitting in front of him and “made it perfectly clear during the 2nd inning that he is not a fan of Hispanics.”
