Mike Krzyzewski thinks college basketball corruption is ‘a blip’. Does he forget these Duke player scandals?

Duke players have also been involved in the larger grassroots-to-NCAA corruption pipeline Coach K claims he knows nothing about.

As the FBI’s college basketball corruption trial for disgraced Adidas executives James Gatto and Merl Code and agency middle man Christian Dawkins nears its conclusion in a Manhattan courthouse this week, the biggest name in the sport is dismissing the wiretaps, the under-oath testimony, and the heaping pile of evidence that all suggests just how broken college...

Todd Gurley is on pace for some absurd numbers, and no one really notices

Gurley led the NFL in touchdowns and scrimmage yards in 2017, and he’s probably going to crush those numbers this year.

Sometimes an athlete is so good that even when they’re having a good season by their own lofty standards, it’s hard to truly appreciate the accomplishment.

In MLB, consensus-best-pitcher-of-the-last-decade Clayton Kershaw has to strike out a whole lot of batters in any given year for it to stand out more than any other dominant season. In the NBA, Stephen Curry has to...

Why Bosa will prepare for the NFL instead of returning to Ohio State

The projected first-rounder has a lot of money at stake, and it wasn’t a sure thing he would’ve been able to help the Buckeyes any time soon.

Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa will not be returning to the field with the Buckeyes for the remainder of the 2018 season, the school announced.

Bosa, who suffered a core injury in September that sidelined him, will focus on the next steps of his football career. “He intends to withdraw from school in order to devote more time to his...

Eric Dier destroying Sergio Ramos, and other wonderful things from the international break

The interlull has actually been pretty entertaining.

One should never start with an apology. And so Tactically Naive is not sorry for being a day late, and will not be asking your forgiveness. After all, if football was fun yesterday, then what must it be today. Fun plus one. That’s right. You’re welcome.

This rugby player kept playing for 30 minutes with a ‘smashed testicle’

This guy’s nuts.

New Zealand rugby player Jona Nareki went above and beyond to keep his team in the game during Otago’s match against Waikato over the weekend. Nareki took a low blow in the 59th minute, and went on to play another half-hour with what can only be described as a “smashed testicle.”

Nareki was struck below the belt and jogged off the field for attention, but with Otago already suffering several injuries the team couldn’t afford to have him off as well. The injury was...

Inside Eric Reid’s protest: ‘What I aim to do is empower my people’

“What I aim to do is empower my people.”

On October 7th in Charlotte professional football readied itself to shake once more. Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid knelt during the playing of the “Star Spangled Banner” ahead of his first game back in the NFL. He was signed to the team after six months of being without a roster, and he’d spent the two previous seasons taking a knee in protest of the inequities black people face daily in America. There, on bended knee again, Reid...

Quentin Richardson vs. Paul Pierce was a confusing, embarrassingly one-sided NBA feud

Quentin Richardson almost followed in Paul Pierce’s footsteps. While Pierce was a junior star at Kansas, he hosted Richardson’s campus visit. The high school senior from Chicago was said to be “80 percent” leaning toward attending Kansas, taking over for Pierce as the team’s star perimeter scorer. Perhaps Richardson would then follow Pierce to the NBA and become a star there, too.

It didn’t happen. Pierce went on to play a long, excellent career, winning a ring with the Celtics....

Nathan Peterman’s severe inability to play quarterback is why we love him

The Peter Man never disappoints, which is bad for him and good for all of us.

In fairness to Nathan Peterman, playing quarterback in the NFL isn’t easy. While there are just 32 starting jobs available, fans could only really look at half of those players and be somewhat content with their team’s quarterback. It’s easy to be a mediocre quarterback in the NFL, but it’s an accomplishment to be so bad that fans find it endearing.

Nathan Peterman, a.k.a. “The Peter Man,” is that bad,...
