YouTube Gold: Epic D From Johnny D

One of the great moments in the history of Cameron Indoor Stadium People tend to forget, and some never knew, that before Notre Dame joined the ACC there was a bit of bad blood between Duke and Notre Dame. Well Coach K and Digger Phelps got along okay but there was some tension, starting with the Gene Banks recruitment (after Banks committed to Duke, Phelps continued to recruit him). Then there was Phelps and his endless jealous carping about the ACC, a bit ironic now. Suffice it to say the Irish weren’t hugely popular in North Carolina. So when Notre Dame, led by the great David...

TCR One-on-One: Winnipeg Blue Bombers WR Ryan Lankford

Former Illinois WR Ryan Lankford sat down with TCR to discuss the Illini and the CFL. In 2010, the Illini were coming off a 3-9 season, their second losing season in as many years.

How does Robert Braswell fit with the Orange?

Frontcourt depth!...Well, kind of. The Syracuse Orange were able to add some much-needed frontcourt depth to their 2018-2019 roster last Sunday when Robert Braswell committed to play for the Orange this upcoming season. A late-bloomer, Braswell may not be the most newsworthy recruit, but his potential should excite Syracuse fans for what could be. Braswell is a 6’9” athletic power forward who can run the floor and finish plays above the rim. Braswell isn’t your typical athletic big man however, as his ball handling skills are more relatable to a guard than a forward. ...
