You know college football? The sport where Scott Cochran earned $595,000 as University of Alabama’s strength and conditioning coordinator this past year?

College Football’s Coaching Carousel: Grading the Seven Biggest Hires and Audits of My 2017 Grades

Full disclosure: I am infatuated with college football head coaches.

College football teams operate like their counterparts in the National Football League in many respects,...

The Beginner’s Guide to Watching LoL Esports

With most sports leagues postponing or suspending their seasons, there is one major sport left alive. No, I’m not talking about the upcoming UFC 249 fight or the HORSE competition being planned by the NBA – I’m talking about electronic sports, or esports.
