    Holly Anderson

    You already know that Week 1 college football games aren't all that useful in the discerning sports fan's quest to consume actual, compelling football. It's helpful, the morning after Jadeveon Clowney's tentative 2013 debut performance in a 27-10 win...

    Holly Anderson

    One of the most welcome modern developments in college football has been the unleashing of communications interns armed with bizarro offseason promotional campaigns on behalf of their programs' coaches. We are speaking chiefly here of the University ...

    Shane Ryan

    Readers, hear me out. The last thing I want to do, in the midst of a "fun" bracket, is stir your blood to mutiny. I'm here to advance Psycho T to the next round, not to praise him. The editors have made Tyler Hansbrough a 1-seed in the '00s region, a...

  16. Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, and the Heat in D.C.

    Shane Ryan

    Given the chance, I will ramble on for hours at a time about Major League Baseball's asinine blackout policy, and how it unfairly deprives me of Nationals and Orioles games, 250 miles southwest, here in Chapel Hill. Prior to 2012, the big problem for...
