ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit had a blunt admission when discussing the state of his favorite sport.

The sport of college football is changing, fast. With the Name, Image and Likeness rules, the landscape of the sport is changing quickly. Tradition is changing, too – Oklahoma and Texas will leave the Big 12 for the SEC in a couple of years.

Herbstreit shared an honest admission on his feelings this week.

“I hate losing the tradition of the sport. I’ve always been, I guess, naive to it. I’ve tried to be the guy who thinks people care about tradition and rivalries. Clearly, the decision-makers don’t. It’s an arms race and it’s about the money,” Herbstreit admitted.

Of course, many would argue that “tradition” went away long ago. After all, the Big 12 has only been around for a couple of decades. And we

MLB World Reacts To Yankees’ Crushing Loss On Sunday

A general view of Yankee Stadium.

A general view of Yankee Stadium.

The New York Yankees put their fans through the ringer this weekend. What looked like a historic win for the franchise turned into an absolutely crushing loss to their hated rival, the Boston Red Sox.

In the final game of a four-game series at Fenway Park, Yankees starting pitcher Domingo German looked absolutely incredible to start. Through seven innings, he allowed just two base runners, one on a walk in the third, and another reached safely on a passed ball after striking out in the seventh.

German was in striking distance of the second no-hitter of the year for the franchise, and the first Yankees no-hitter against the Red Sox since Dave Righetti in 1983. New York finds itself well back of Boston in the AL East race this year, but a win like that seemed like a possible turning point for the team

There continues to be a lot of speculation about the future of Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Watson is currently under investigation after more than a dozen women accused the star quarterback of sexual misconduct. It’s unclear what type of punishment Watson could be facing from the NFL. However, the star quarterback is currently preparing to play this season.

If he does play, will it be with the Texans?

The All-Pro quarterback is rumored to want out of Houston. Several teams have been mentioned as possible destinations, though one stands out for ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

“There is no team out there, no team out there, better positioned and better armed to go trade for Deshaun Watson than the Philadelphia Eagles,” he said.

Eagles fans are understandably intrigued by the idea. Philadelphia currently has second-year quarterback

Twitter reacts to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s block of Deandre Ayton in Game 4 of Bucks-Suns NBA Finals

In a pivotal moment late in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, Giannis Antetokounmpo seemed to defy what we know about physics.

The Bucks had just taken a two-point lead over the Suns with a jump shot by Khris Middleton, but Phoenix wasn’t going away. Devin Booker lobbed a perfectly placed alley-oop pass to Deandre Ayton, who charged uncovered to the rim.

Ayton was just a few inches away from slamming down a game-tying dunk with 1:15 left when Antetokounmpo, who had been covering Booker before the pass, leaped from several feet away to deny one of the Suns’ most dynamic offensive weapons at the rim. 

Milwaukee went on to win the game 109-103 to even the series at two games apiece. The teams will now travel back to Arizona for Game 5 on Saturday.
