  • Witnesses recall Northwestern's 1995 upset of Notre Dame

     Witnesses recall Northwestern's 1995 upset of Notre Dame
    Sept. 2, 1995, is the day Northwestern stopped being Northworstern. It's when the Mildcats became the Wildcats. It's when coach Gary Barnett's "Expect Victory" mantra stopped eliciting chuckles. Unlikely doesn't begin to describe what happened at...

    Junior Seau, Kurt Wagner nominated for Hall of Fame
    Linebacker Junior Seau and quarterback Kurt Warner were among the 113 modern-era candidates nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Tuesday. A total of 99 players and 14 coaches make up the list of 113 nominees, all of whom have been retired at...
  • Even as an NFL rookie, Eric Dickerson seemed bound for greatness

    Even as an NFL rookie, Eric Dickerson seemed bound for greatness
    Eric Dickerson didn't look all that special, not to the man in the hat. The Los Angeles Rams rookie, who's approaching the 30th anniversary of breaking the NFL's single-season rushing record, had a rather inauspicious debut. It came in Irvine during a...
  • Steelers like what Bell, Blount bring to the team's running game

    If there is any rivalry between Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount over carries, playing time, importance or statistics, it certainly wasn't evident during the Steelers' training camp that wrapped up Thursday night. Rather than having a single...
  • Commentary: ESPN gives the cold shoulder to the Olympics

    Commentary: ESPN gives the cold shoulder to the Olympics
    ESPN bills itself as the Worldwide Leader in Sports. Based on that, women's basketball is bigger worldwide than the Winter Olympics. Nothing against the Connecticut Huskies, but do they really warrant more airtime than Bode Miller, the U.S. women's...
  • Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith visits Disney World

    Disney World embraced the D. That is, they made a little bit of history as Super Bowl XLVIII MVP and Seattle Seahawks outside linebacker Malcolm Smith visited the Magic Kingdom today to make good on his postgame promise of "I'm Going to Disney World."...
  • What part of 'pass rush' don't Bears understand?

    What part of 'pass rush' don't Bears understand?
    OK, so Julius Peppers was sick. What’s the excuse for the rest of the Bears' defensive line? Right now, that appears to be the worst unit on the Bears. I mean, it looks like the pass rush is being coordinated by Fox. I’ve heard that the...
  • Once the Ravens' solution, Ray Rice and running game looking for answers

    Once the Ravens' solution, Ray Rice and running game looking for answers
    Ray Rice used to be the solution to whatever ailed the Ravens. If quarterback Joe Flacco was having a bad day, the offense would go through Rice. If there was nothing open down the field, Flacco would find the diminutive yet durable running back and...
  • As teams have changed, meaning of Ravens-Steelers rivalry has not

    As teams have changed, meaning of Ravens-Steelers rivalry has not
    A little more than three months after they exchanged a terse handshake near midfield at M&T Bank Stadium, Ravens coach John Harbaugh and his Pittsburgh Steelers counterpart, Mike Tomlin, were together again in an entirely different setting. At a posh...
  • Once 'black and blue,' some in AFC North closer to down and out

    Once 'black and blue,' some in AFC North closer to down and out
    The logic was sound. The Ravens were the defending Super Bowl champions and hadn't missed the playoffs since 2007. The Cincinnati Bengals made the playoffs in consecutive seasons and were poised to take the next step. The Pittsburgh Steelers haven't had...
  • Amazing healing power of Bears' non-existent run defense

    Amazing healing power of Bears' non-existent run defense
    Can the Bears stop stinking against the run? Can we get that message up to Halas Hall? Can they understand it? Forget the quarterback discussion. The Bears have a quarterback either way. But they have no clue how to stop the run. Yeah, the Bears...
