Alabama Basketball: Two programs moving in different directions meet Tuesday night as the Tide looks to sweep Auburn. It is not easy to give up 90 points and win, but Alabama Basketball did that in early January in Auburn. Freshmen led the way for both teams.

Chicago Bears hire former Texas head coach Tom Herman

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Flush with his buyout from the Longhorns, Herman is making the jump to the NFL for the first time. The Chicago Bears announced the hire of former Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman on Monday, adding him as an offensive analyst who will also undertake special projects.

From the Video Vault: The Culture of Cincinnati

Another Entry from the “Best of the Video Vault” series. I think a lot of things. I think poor Esther. I think Jim Plunkett should be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I think Dan Ross is the greatest tight end to ever play for Northeastern University and for the Cincinnati Bengals. I think Elvis Costello’s 2005 album The Delivery Man is an underappreciated entry in his catalog. I think it should rank alongside his mid 1980s work like Almost Blue and King of America. I think Super Bowl XXIII is the best Super Bowl I’ve ever seen and that Super Bowl XLVIII is the...

Syracuse 2021 spring football preview: Running backs

Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports After a surprising breakout from Sean Tucker, a lot of expectations now rest on the run game. After years of compiling these Syracuse Orange spring football previews, this is certainly the weirdest iteration thus far. At current, we don’t know if or when spring football is really happening, and also don’t have a full staff in place for Dino Babers. Speaking of Babers, he’s potentially on the hot seat — or at least lukewarm seat — after two straight losing campaigns (and four of out five without a bowl). On the bright side, it keeps...

Leading up to Super Bowl LV, White told reporters “If we get the W, I don’t care what they say, I’m pulling the horse out and I’m gonna hold the Lombardi Trophy and I’m gonna ride around.” White and his Bucs did indeed get the W.

What the NFL champs can teach us about team culture

5 leadership lessons from Tampa Bay’s win in the big game. I’ve never thought of the NFL as a place to learn about ‘culture building’ in a what to do sense. What not to do? Sure. But to acquire a blueprint for cultural success, outside of New England, and post-Bill Walsh, it seems almost hilarious. However, what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pulled off in Super Bowl LV is nothing short of impressive. Even in New England, the Patriot Way hasn’t come without owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick and former star quarterback Tom Brady being under fire for violations...

Chiefs’ offensive line struggles provide even more context to Syracuse’s 2019-20 seasons

Heading into the Super Bowl on Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs were considered to be at lest on par with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — and were actually favored by a field goal. The Bucs were one of the best pressure defenses in the league, though against a quarterback of Patrick Mahomes’s elusiveness, that could spell a recipe for disaster.
