0 Bielema said that Saban can't compare to him basically

By Kenny Howell

Bret Bielema was trying to get some Razorback fans fired up at the Saline County Razorback Club Fish Fry by saying, according to Saturday Down South,


“You can take Saban’s record when he was at Michigan State and when he was a coach in the Big Ten and put it against mine, and he can’t compare.”

I realize the guy was just trying to get people excited and sell some tickets, but come on, man, Saban has more national titles than hairs you have in the little spike you try to pull off. 

Bielema did have a way better record than Saban in the Big 10, that is correct, but he doesn't mention the last 11 years where Saban's record is 116-29 and four national titles. Bielema hasn't even won that many conference championships in a weaker conference. 

Saban is 159-55-1 all time and Bielema is 68-24. Both are 74 percent. So those are very comparable. They are exactly the same. The difference is that Saban almost has one hand filled up with National Championship rings and Bielema has only finished in the Top 10 twice, and has a 2-4 bowl record. That's right Bielema, that isn't even comparable. 

0 J.J. Barea tries to dribble through Hasheem Thabeet's legs

Still trying to figure out what J.J. Barea is trying to pull off here. Did he lose the ball and end up between Thabeet's legs or was it his plan to dribble through them the entire time. You decide.

0 The 1932 Original Celtics


Deadspin posted this great video of the 1932 Celtics, and how amazing they were. By amazing, they look like the kids that are forced to play basketball in gym class that would rather be doing something else. The last play they show is the only one that kind of resembles a play still used quite often today.

0 Another three at the buzzer lifts Ohio State

It was Aaron Craft in the round of 32, now it is LaQuinton Ross in the Sweet 16. Ross drilled a three with two seconds left to move the Buckeyes past Arizon into the Elite 8. Or is it THE Elite 8. I know Buckeyes have trouble with the pronunciation of that word. 

0 Pavel Datsyuk embarrasses people

Pavel Datsyuk pulled the old playground crossover on the ice last night on the Sharks' Logan Couture and made him fall down. That is all.

0 I could be a fan of telepathic soccer

I have had a little fun with soccer on occasion because I am not the biggest fan, but I can get behind telepathic soccer. That's basically just soccer with blind folds. I don't know who any of these players are, but I have heard of that Rooney guy, so I am assuming they are pretty elite. Make this happen.

0 Philly Phanatic has an adorable new girlfriend


The Red Philly Phanatic made a stop by the local news to talk about painting the town red with traffic person Kacie McDonnell. Naturally, the Phanatic goes in for the kiss, and McDonnell cutely quips that she has a boyfriend now. She seems like a real nice lady. I am happy for the two of them.

0 US soccer fans dodge beer cans

Apparently some big soccer thing happened last night and the U.S. team played in Mexico City. It ended in a  0-0 tie, of course, because soccer is the worst. Since no one was scoring, the Mexican fans decided to chuck beer cans at the U.S. fans. Because what else are you going to do. Nothing interesting is happening in the game.

0 Haas, 34, beats down the No. 1 player in the world


Tommy Haas didn't look 34 Tuesday when he thoroughly dominated the No. 1 player in the world, Novak Djokovic. Djokovic played bad, and Haas took advantage, like on shots above.

0 Andrew Wiggins is unreal


Andrew Wiggins, who is the No. 1 recruit in the nation according to Rivals, just released another mixtape of his senior year, and good lord is he good. He is going to be exciting to watch. Oh, and he is Canadian for what it's worth.

0 Radwanska pulls off ridiculous shot



Agnieszka Radwanska pulled off an unbelievable shot last night against Kirsten Flipkens. It was more of just put your racket and hope for the best, but it worked perfectly.

0 Will Muschamp continues to be crazy


Florida Head Coach Will Muschamp is a crazy person. We've had video evidence of that before. He occasionally looks like he is going to poop out a piece of his heart and just fall over. Here is a video of a talk about players doing there job that ends with an assault on a wipe board.

0 Mr. T wins hockey


Mr. T went this hometown Chicago Blackhawks game last night and did the whole celebrity shoot the puck game. He only made one, but that one is enough to get all excited and when Mr. T gets all excited, we all win.

0 Anthony Adams retires at White Castle, fills out job application


Nine year NFL veteran Anthony Adams retired recently, and had the genius to make a little video of his announcement. Since his retirement was not something that was on every sports network, Adams made a pretty funny video of him retiring at a White Castle. Seems like he is taking the retirement well, and if the White Castle thing doesn't work out, you need to get this guy on TV.

0 Marshall Henderson flips off crowd



Who would have thought that Marshall Henderson would have trouble dealing with adversity? The hot tempered guard didn't handle the loss to La Salle to well, and gave the old double one finger salute to the crowd. If this guy could learn how to channel his fire into the basketball court, and that's it, he could be one of the top players in college. That's if he doesn't bolt for the NBA to get his money, as he says, and end up in the NBA D-League.

0 HS kid bench presses 700 pounds

If you could see me through this computer, you would realize that I don't know a ton about lifting weights. That being said, I know when a high school kids bench presses 700 pounds, that is pretty freaking impressive. Matt Poursoltani of Pilot Point High School, Texas, did exactly that on March 23. In other news, my thighs are sore cause I had to crouch in the attic the other day.

0 Marshawn Lynch scores TD at Cal spring game


Marshawn Lynch attended the Cal spring game and got in on a fourth down try. He proceeded to run hard as the Cal defenders treated him like he was an 8-year-old that won a contest to be in the spring game by totally not tackling him. Or they treated him like all Pac-12 defenses. Someone get the Pac-12 a compress for that hot hot burn.

0 Aaron Craft nails three for the win

Just a bit ago. Aaron Craft drilled a buzzer beater to send Ohio State into the Sweet 16. He also holds the arm in place while one of the Iowa State players seems to be having a heart attack. Poor guy. Like my wife says, everyone should be able to win. 

0 Sergio Garcia hits one handed shot...from a tree

Sergio Garcia got a bit unlucky in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, as his first shot on the 10th hole ended up in a tree. That didn't stop him as he climbed the tree and hit it backwards, in what ended up being not a bad shot considering the circumstances.

0 Florida Gulf Coast alley oop sinks Hoyas

When you are going to upset a highly ranked team, you need just about everything to go right. That was definitely the case in the Florida Gulf Coast upset of Georgetown. Nothing epitomizes it more than the alley oop from Brett Comer to Chase Fieler. Probably the best of the tournament.

0 JaVale McGee, Kenneth Faried, good at blocking


JaVale McGee is one of most freakish athletes in the NBA, and he proved it again against OKC by snatching a hook shot out of the air. Also, Kenneth Faried gets about high as you can get on the defensive end. I think these guys are good at basketball.

0 Fan rushes court to shake Lebron's hand

A fan in Cleveland really missed Lebron, so he made a shirt saying that, then rushed the court during the middle of the play to shake his hand. I think it all went rather smoothly. 

0 Jadaveon Clowney been doing this awhile


Jadaveon Clowney was at the top of many people's recruiting rankings in high school, so it's not like he came out of nowhere. Future Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson got to know him back in high school too as evidenced from the clip above.

0 Don't you do it Chris Paul


Flopping has obviously made basketball much much worse, and just one of the reasons it's hard for me to watch a lot of it anymore. That and a foul every time someone makes a little contact with someone else. But I digress. Chris Paul pulled the worst flop of the year when he walked over to Demarcus Cousins and acted liked Cousins punched him in the face. The best part is Cousins not knowing what just happened.

0 How to not score a goal with style

Apparently from Greece, this poor guy hits every post, but can't score a goal. Knowing soccer, this was probably the only time anyone got a shot on goal, and the final score was 0-0.

0 Ricky Rubio is ridiculous


Ricky Rubio did this behind the back twice move last night. Just let the video speak for itself.

0 Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin are just showing off

Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin got loose on a fast break last night and what ensued was a between the legs alley oop pass from Crawford to Griffin. I was taught in junior pro basketball that this was show boating and no one should do that. Crawford and Griffin should be ashamed of themselves. It probably hurt the Celtics feelings real bad. 

0 Kadri Nets Hat Trick on Beautiful Third Goal

0 Most intense hockey fight ever

By Justin Koehn

I have seen countless hockey fights in my day, but I have never seen one with as much as suspense and anticipation as this one. You think the fight is never going to start, and just when it appears it may start, it never does. To the box anyway!

0 Preds drop three in a row in Cali

By Justin Koehn

From nhl.com

Just as you think things are looking up for the Predators, they take a 3 game nosedive against Anaheim, San Jose, and Los Angeles knocking themselves out of the NHL power rankings and quickly moving themselves toward the back of the pack in the Western Conference. Last night against the Kings, Nashville was unable to contain the defending Stanley Cup champions in their final meeting this season. In the third period alone, LA was able to tally four unanswered goals, which two of those third period LA goals were sent in by Jeff Carter. He also scored the first goal of the game in the second period laying down a nice canvas for his hat trick. That makes five goals in a row Nashville was unable to stop. The lone goal scorer for the Predators was Gabriel Bourque at 13:05, assisted by Weber and Erat. This would prove to be too little too late as the time would expire a few short minutes later. After watching these three games, it makes me sound like Fred Willard from A Mighty Wind
WHA' HAPPENED?!?

Nashville continues on their journey with back to back home games this Friday and Saturday against Edmonton and Minnesota. Hopefully they can get their game together as there is only so much the 7th Man can do to help.

0 Stephen A. Smith complains about ties in hockey, which don't exist anymore


Nobody can really doubt that Stephen A. Smith is kind of an idiot. I mean, yeah, the dude has worked his way up the ladder and achieved one of the highest positions in the profession of sports writing, but so has Skip Bayless, so what does that even mean anymore.

To be fair to Smith, hockey isn't his sport. But guess what you do when something is not your sport, you don't talk about it. That didn't stop Smith who keeps complaining about the Blackhawks' streak, which contains some ties. It doesn't actually because there are no ties in hockey anymore, but that doesn't stop ole Stephen A.

0 Red Sox, Yankees battling for last place?

Kenny Howell

It is nearly impossible to predict baseball, but it seems something strange may be happening in the AL East. 

What once was a division dominated by the Red Sox and Yankees has turned into a wide open race that seems to have pushed those two teams to the bottom. 

I think it is a two team race, and I am not including the Blue Jays in that. I know that is the hot answer right now, and some people are picking them to win the World Series, but I am not buying it until I see them come together. The Marlins, where the Blue Jays got several players from, looked poised to make a run last year, and they ended up being pretty bad. 

The Orioles' young talent finally came through last season, much like the Rays did a few years ago, and seem like they are going to be sticking around for awhile. The Rays have been around, and they are going to be good year in and year out, at least within striking distance. 

The good thing about the two powerhouses heading toward the cellar is that it shows that money isn't always the answer. Everyone kind of seemed to know that, but it is finally being confirmed. The Yankees and Red Sox have gone on spending sprees that have worked because they bought the right players. But they are in such a mess now, does it really some worth it? The Orioles and Rays have built teams with young talent, and if they can afford to keep them, they are going to keep winning. 

If the Red Sox and Yankees show some patience, they can get back to the success they had. But for this year, it ain't looking too good.

0 The best buzzer beater I have ever seen


Hands down, this is the best buzzer beater I have ever seen at any level of basketball. It comes from the Section 1 Class AA championship game in Westchester, NY. Khalil Edney hits a 55-foot buzzer beat after the other team tosses it in the air to run out the clock. He gets it off just as time expires and nails it. Unreal.
