Rob Gronkowski, the former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneer tight end, is known for many things on and off the gridiron, but perhaps the most iconic thing that Gronkowski is known for is spiking the ball after scoring a touchdown. The celebration became synonymous with him and, in many ways, touchdown celebrations in general. Gronkowski is obviously a fantastic athlete; however, he is not a baseball player. One of the traditions of major-league baseball is to have a celebrity come out and throw the ceremonial first pitch for every game. Often, these individuals are celebrities or star athletes…

Last week, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady announced that he would be open to returning to the NFL under certain conditions. The story was viewed as mostly a funny but unlikely situation, but as the week went on and the discussions continued to grow, it became apparent that there was perhaps a chance or at least a condition in which Tom Brady would return. Obviously, all of this still needs to be taken with a grain of salt, as Tom Brady is already in contract to be an NFL commentator…

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is speaking out against an NFL penalty that he believes is hurting the game. The normally quiet quarterback, who rarely speaks out during the offseason, joined Travis and Jason Kelce’s Podcast “New Heights” and spoke out about a penalty he’d like to see eliminated from the NFL. Interestingly enough, the penalty in question is taunting, a 15-yard penalty that often happens after a quarterback takes a big sack, is intercepted, or has a strip sack. In fact, quarterbacks have not been known to pick up taunting penalties, with few exceptions. Joe Burrow Says NFL Needs…

The NFL, or the ‘No Fun League’, may need to be careful; otherwise, it may lose its title and become called the National Football League again. First, the league announced new kickoff rules that will greatly improve the game’s safety and entertainment. Now, they are announcing that teams will be allowed to add a third helmet to their uniform, a rule adjusted to two designs just a few years ago. NFL’s Alternative Helmet Has Been Very Popular Ahead of the 2022 season, the NFL announced that teams would be allowed to have a second helmet design. This change had been…

On Wednesday night, the University of Arkansas announced that John Calipari would officially take over the basketball program. The Arkansas Razorbacks struggled this past basketball season after making three straight NCAA tournaments, including two Elite Eight appearances. The basketball team was bad, and the football team was even worse. The Razorbacks struggled to compete in the SEC, finishing with a 4-8 overall record, including a 1-7 finish in SEC play. Many feel that if this season doesn’t go better, Sam Pittman, as well as many of the other coaches, will have to find a new job somewhere else. Arkansas Football…

The current rules for the college football transfer portal state that a player can transfer from their first school one time without any penalty. Additionally, if a head coach leaves, players are given another opportunity to transfer. Finally, a graduate transfer has no limits on transfers. Up to this point, these rules have led to chaos, but at least somewhat contained chaos, However, following a court ruling during college basketball season that said that players who transferred twice could not be held out of playing, it seems that the transfer portal is about to enter a stage without regulations or…

The NFLPA and NFL have announced that five new NFL helmets have passed inspection at a rating that has never been seen before. They are rated better than any other helmet in the league, showing innovation and emphasis in player safety going into the 2024 season. These five designs will join a total of 12 new helmet models that players can wear this upcoming season. In fact, some of the helmets are rated so high, that they will no longer require padded protection during practices, a common complaint among players. More Position-Specific Helmet Designs Available Football is a game where,…

SEC Network’s Paul Finbaum sent a shocking message to Texas A&M fans last week when he stated that they were, in fact, the reason why the Longhorns are joining the SEC. In an episode of “That SEC Podcast” Finebaum shared that despite Texas A&M being promised that Texas would never join the SEC if the Aggies joined, the Aggies ultimately led to the Longhorn being invited. Finebaum shared the following: “They felt [Texas A&M], they were promised that Texas would never come in. But things change, and it’s A&M’s fault. A&M was so successful in the SEC, that Texas said,…

BYU football may still be months away, but it’s never too early to start looking at different position groups. One position group that is not being talked about much but is still very important to look at is the running backs. The Cougars will be without Deion Smith and Aidan Robbins from last year, but they will still bring back quite a bit of talent who has been productive in the past. LJ Martin will lead the Cougars; however, Miles Davis and Hinkley Ropati are other running backs who will get plenty of playing time as long as they can…

Brian Kelly and LSU Football have clarified that they support Louisiana Governor Jeff Landry’s stance on all sports teams being present on the court or field during “The Star-Spangled Banner” National Anthem. Last week, during the Women’s College Basketball Elite Eight featuring LSU and Iowa, which was at the time the most tv viewed women’s college sporting event of all time (Iowa vs. UConn since broke that record) there was a moment before where the Iowa players were seen on the court holding hands during the anthem while LSU was nowhere to be seen. The comparison between the two teams…
