Texas Tech beats Texas, and maybe Kliff Kingsbury just saved his job?

Kingsbury might have just bought himself another year in Lubbock.

With a 10-point, fourth-quarter comeback, Texas Tech came back to beat Texas on Black Friday, 27-23. The Red Raiders finish their season 6-6, and will play in a bowl game after the win (they didn’t have the APR score to get in at 5-7).

That’s not a very Texas Tech score line. Things didn’t end up with both teams in the 50s in a wild shootout. This is a game Texas Tech typically doesn’t win under Kingsbury recently, a...

Devon Modster replaced Rosen...

Steve Kerr's brilliant running gag has him breaking out new props at press conferences

A Rubik’s Cube, a Slinky, a deck of cards, and Steve Kerr all walk into a bar...

Steve Kerr, head coach of the most popular team in the NBA, has dealt with shuffled starting lineups early this season. For various reasons, his starters keep missing games and the first thing he does at each pre-game press conference is announce which bench player will start in their place. Basketball reporters, in turn, will tweet out Kerr’s answers. It’s a strange manufacturing line that eventually...

This kid was surprised with Warriors tickets and now Stephen Curry has another surprise for him

Can’t wait!

Surprising my nephew to the @warriors at @MiamiHEAT game. Doesn’t get more wholesome than this. #NBA pic.twitter.com/Uvqw4xWbIY

Surprising a loved one with a gift is always the best. Seeing their expression once they realize what you’ve bought them is worth more than value of the purchase itself.

In this case, an uncle bought his nephew a Steph Curry jersey and topped that with tickets to the Warriors-Heat game....

Stephen Curry is back in MVP mode with 26 points in a single quarter

No Durant, no Draymond, but Curry is enough.

The Golden State Warriors are down Kevin Durant and Draymond Green, but they still have Stephen Curry. Yeah, uh, against the Chicago Bulls, that’s probably enough. Actually, that’s definitely enough.

Curry scored four points in the first quarter... and 26 in the second. His 30 points in the first half were the most by any Warrior this season, and his 26-point second was also a season high. You can see a couple of his plays above, and an...

Watch this ill-advised fake punt just get worse and worse and worse

And worse and worse.

In the pantheon of incredibly spectacular punt failures this one is certainly near the top of the list.

Western Kentucky punter Jake Collins tries to salvage this fake attempt, and you won’t believe what happens next.

Ohhhhhhhh nooooooo. #SCNotTop10 pic.twitter.com/5R5jwSpXdq

As soon as Collins set off you could tell that things were doomed. The tiptoed delay before he tried to run was kinda odd. But I will say...
