College Football is Back! Degenerates Beware!

College Football is Back! Degenerates Beware!

Last night, after finally (and exhaustingly) sorting-out my SEC Network issues, I was able to sit down just in time to catch the South Carolina Gamecocks taking the field. If you’re a college football fan, you know the drill–2001: A Space Odyssey begins to play, all of Williams-Brice Stadium comes alive to the point of goosebumps, then their beloved...

Washington Redskins Name Change: Top Options

Washington Redskins Name Change: Top Options

It feels like the Washington Redskins name change controversy is now a weekly news topic, refusing to go away, and causing my buddy Christian Matthews (new PR guy) to double down on the Advil. Now, 50 senators have come out in favor of changing the team name despite the Redskins’ best Twitter efforts to convince the Senate otherwise. I’ve gone back...

What Do You Think About the Redskins Decision??

What Do You Think About the Redskins Decision??

Social media erupted this morning after the US Patent and Trademark Office announced their decision to revoke the patent for the Washington Redskins’ logo. We’re going to open up the phone lines at 8:00 tonight to hear YOUR thoughts on the issue, and what it means for the future of the Skins. We’ll also discuss the passing of Tony Gwynn as...

Mark Herzlich – A True Father’s Day Story

Mark Herzlich – A True Father’s Day Story

Fathers Day has always bordered on the ‘real holiday/Hallmark holiday’ line. For some, it’s a day to give your husband a tie and a card made out of macaroni and glitter, while he crushes Buds in his lazy boy watching the US Open. But some families understand the true spirit of the day, and give thanks to the fathers that understand the meaning...

Norwalk’s Evan Adams Commits to Syracuse

Norwalk’s Evan Adams Commits to Syracuse

The Norwalk Hour is reporting that Norwalk High Junior lineman Evan Adams has verbally committed to Syracuse. Coach Sean Ireland first broke the news on his twitter account last night. The 6’6″ 300 pounder played guard and defensive end last fall, but will stick to the offensive side of the ball at ‘Cuse and will likely shift to Tackle. He...

Kliff Kingsbury Brought Bottle Service Girls To Practice In An Ice Cream Truck

Kliff Kingsbury Brought Bottle Service Girls To Practice In An Ice Cream Truck

From College Spun comes this story about Texas Tech football coach Kliff Kingsbury revealing he once brought bottle service girls to a Houston Cougars practice in an ice cream truck when he was an assistant there. The key takeaway from this story is Lubbock doesn’t have bottle service girls. So, if you’re a recruit and you love two scoops of...

Searching for the Real Johnny Manziel

Searching for the Real Johnny Manziel

In 2007, it was Notre Dame’s Brady Quinn. In 2012, it was Oklahoma State’s Brandon Weeden. Two quarterbacks, each taken by the Cleveland Browns with the twenty-second overall pick. Quinn has 12 career TD passes vs. 17 interceptions; is currently a free agent; and it certainly seems as though his career’s flame, once bright with potential, has...

Interview with Thurman Thomas!

Interview with Thurman Thomas!

Last night we were joined by Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas. Thomas defended the Bills’ draft day trade and gave a first hand account of what went down in the war room leading up to the selection of Sammy Watkins. He also discussed the passing of Ralph Wilson and the courage of friend (and possible future owner of the Bills) Jim Kelly. Click to...

2014 NFL Draft: Day One Winners

2014 NFL Draft: Day One Winners

After only one round, it’s hard to say any one team is a ‘loser’ in this year’s NFL Draft. Granted, there were some questionable picks in terms of value (Jacksonville, Minnesota) but, all-in-all, I’m in no position to call anyone any names after just one day. With that said, here’s a look at five teams I thought did the most...

Best Sports Video Game Ever – Tony D’s Pick

Best Sports Video Game Ever – Tony D’s Pick

Is this really even a debate? Tecmo Super Bowl (NOT Super Tecmo Bowl as most call it) is hands down THE best sports video game ever made. Released in 1991 by Tecmo this game was THE first sports video game to have licensing included which meant you actually played as real teams and as real players. Some games before this used real names or real teams but...

2014 NFL Draft: Five Potential ‘Sleepers’

2014 NFL Draft: Five Potential ‘Sleepers’

Who will the Houston Texans select with the first overall pick this Thursday in the 2014 NFL Draft? Will it be the supremely talented South Carolina Gamecock, Jadeveon Clowney? Will it be the gifted linebacker from the University of Buffalo, Khalil Mack? Maybe a quarterback like ‘Johnny Football’? Whoever gets selected with the first pick, or in the...

New York Giants 2014 Schedule: Neal’s Updated Predictions

New York Giants 2014 Schedule: Neal’s Updated Predictions

Coming off my predictions for the most anticipated NFL games of 2014, I thought I should definitely update my predictions for the Giants in 2014. When the league first announced Big Blue’s opponents for the upcoming season, I was in a bad, bad place. WEEK 1 SEP 8 7:10PM EDT @ LIONS ON ESPN Lions will be looking to avenge their loss last season on home...

Neal’s Most Anticipated NFL Games of 2014

Neal’s Most Anticipated NFL Games of 2014

I know, I know. I’m late to the game on this. NFL schedule released last week but I haven’t had a chance to review and give my take on the most anticipated NFL games of 2014. Here are my picks: Week 1 49ers at Cowboys on FOX at 4:25pm ET Last time Romo faced the Niners, he ended up with broken ribs and one hell of a comeback. This time, we get the...

This Josh Freeman Signing Is Making Me Loco About Eli Manning

This Josh Freeman Signing Is Making Me Loco About Eli Manning

Anyone else worried about Eli Manning? First, he has his worst season ever then he hurts his ankle in the season finale, has surgery a full 4 months after the injury happened, and now the Giants sign Josh Freeman who couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn when he played concussed against Big Blue as a Viking back in October. I’ve been an absolute...

Best College Football Basketball Schools

Best College Football Basketball Schools

The two most profitable and enjoyable college sports are football and baseball. UConn just won another men’s basketball national championship. That program has been incredibly successful over the past 15 years. Their football team? Not so much. Sure, they’ve won 26 championships, but many of those weren’t in D-1A. .485 career winning...

Should the Jets Sign DeSean Jackson?

Should the Jets Sign DeSean Jackson?

After weeks of dangling DeSean Jackson on the trade market, the Eagles have decided to part ways with their star wide receiver. By cutting Jackson, the Eagles save $10.5 million next season, and over $30 million over the next three. The Jets were rumored to be potential trade partners with the Eagles, with the asking price said to have been a 3rd round pick, so...

Tri-State Sports Guys Interview With Jerry Rice

Tri-State Sports Guys Interview With Jerry Rice

I’m pretty sure that I speak for all of us when I say that interviewing Jerry Rice last night was surreal, even for Moose who got to talk to him on the phone before we put him on the air! We want to thank Jerry again for taking time out of his Wednesday night to call into the show and give us a fantastic...

Pat Angerer Interview

Pat Angerer Interview

Free agent linebacker called in this week to discuss his time with the Colts and his upcoming free agency. The interview was interrupted by a surprise guest, but Pat was cool about it. He’s a great guy and either NY team would love to have him this season. Check it out...

Kevin Pierre-Louis Dazzles Scouts at the NFL Combine

Kevin Pierre-Louis Dazzles Scouts at the NFL Combine

We’ve been saying on the show for two years: Kevin Pierre-Louis will be an impactful NFL player. After yesterday’s workout at the NFL combine, the rest of the sports world is finally catching up. After an outstanding career at Boston College, where he was named to the rivals.com Freshman All-America team and was twice bestowed with All-ACC honors,...

TMZ’s Footage of Ray Rice

TMZ’s Footage of Ray Rice

TMZ.com posted a video showing Ray Rice dragging his unconscious fiancĂ© out of an elevator after a fight in which both parties were arrested. The NFL obviously doesn’t condone this kind of stuff, but isn’t it interesting that we’re not hearing NFL executives or players coming out saying Ray Rice will never be accepted in a locker room again? ...

The Best of Russell Wilson At NC State

The Best of Russell Wilson At NC State

Can you tell I miss football? I meant to post this video closer to the Super Bowl, but shat happens. I take pride in my NFL knowledge, but I’m no Santa when it comes to the collegiate level. That’s why I alway forget that “DangeRuss” Russell Wilson spent the first three years of his NCAA career at NC State before transferring to...

The Zuki & Ruggs Show

The Zuki & Ruggs Show

Zuki & Ruggs breakdown the Super Bowl, discuss Peyton Manning’s legacy and whether or not the Seahawks are an all-time great defense. Share...

80% of Super Bowl Ads Don’t Do Dawk For Sales

80% of Super Bowl Ads Don’t Do Dawk For Sales

I didn’t make the varsity baseball squad at Hopkins freshman year like our lauded host Mike D. I was on JV. I ended up having othroscopic surgery on my throwing elbow that summer (June 1999). Sophomore year I made a couple appearances at the varsity level and got shelled like a Ninja Turtle. I messed up my throwing shoulder boxing in a fraternity pledge...

Frank Caliendo 30 for 30 on Richard Sherman is Not Sorry Nor Mediocre

Frank Caliendo 30 for 30 on Richard Sherman is Not Sorry Nor Mediocre

After seeing this 30 for 30 mockumentary short on Richard Sherman featuring Frank Caliendo (thanks to BroBible for the find), it’s blaringly glaringly obvious that Frank needs his own show again. Caliendo does spot-on impressions of Jon Gruden, Ron Jaworski, Adam Schefter, Mel Kiper Jr. and – probably the best of the bunch – Bill Belichick....

Star Wars Themed NFL Helmets

Star Wars Themed NFL Helmets

I love mashups and I love logo / helmet / uniform design. These Star Wars NFL helmets are what I’m looking for. The design above is for the Kuat Walkers aka the New York Giants. Thanks to this Reddit entry, we were introduced to Behance digital designer John Raya who’s combined the rich history of Star Wars characters (minus Jar Jar Binks, har har...
