→ 3 Clemson Players Suspended for Orange Bowl

Huge bummer. It looks like things are coming off the rails before they have even started.

→ The Rock Just Confirmed An Appearance At WrestleMania 32

Finally…The Rock has come back to…error. Wait. He’s there every year…

→ First look at Benedict Cumberbatch as Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Mads Mikkelsen to play main villain

Cumberbatch looks great. I’m looking forward to this one.

→ Nikki Bella May Have To Retire Her Finisher Because Of The Damage It Did To Her Neck

I’m not the world’s biggest Nikki Bella fan, but I hope she recovers from this. Also, I’m going to miss seeing her do her finisher; it’s probably the best of any female in the WWE.

→ Why are the playoff semifinals on New Year’s Eve again?

This is confusing to everyone because New Year’s Day is a great time for a couple big games and New Year’s Eve is a horrible one – at least if you are one of the many people who A) have to work, or B) have other plans that night. In other words, tens of millions of you.

So why is this happening? Why is college football staging its semifinals at a time that everyone predicts will cause fewer people to watch?

Here’s the honest answer: the people who run college football don’t care about you. At all. Like, not one single bit.

Dan Wetzel does an excellent job pointing out how stupid of a decision this is. Even as a die-hard college football fan, I wish the games were on another day.

→ Odell Beckham’s war with Josh Norman leads to one-game suspension

Beckham’s hit was flat out dirty. I think he should have been suspended for more games.

→ Brandon Stroud’s 10 Best Pro Wrestling Matches Of 2015

Pretty good list. I would have put Sasha v. Bailey from Brooklyn at 1, and bumped the Royal Rumble triple threat down to like 7 or 8, but, overall, it’s a pretty good list.

→ Suspended Florida QB Will Grier will transfer

This doesn’t make any sense. Grier would surely be in contention to be the starting QB when he got back. There has to be more to this story.

→ Dabo Swinney rents out a Frankie’s Fun Park for the Team

As I’ve said before, I can see why people have a lot of fun playing for Dabo.

→ Clemson WR Artavis Scott had meniscus surgery after ACC title game

So he was only 80%, but he’ll probably be fine by the bowl game? I’ve got my fingers crossed that’s true. They need Scott to win.

Server Update Complete. Please Forgive some Duplicate Tweets and RSS Items

I recently moved this site to a newer server and I think the move caused some duplication in my new article tweets. Things should be fixed now, but it might take a bit for all the mistakes to work their way through the queue. Thank you for your patience!

→ The Lucha Underground Season 2 Trailer Is Here, And It’s Spectacular

This is fantastic. It’s exactly what I want from this show. I cannot wait for it to start.

→ Buzzer-beater against UNC gives Shaka Smart first big win at Texas

I would always prefer that Carolina (unless they’re playing Clemson), but I am glad that Shaka is starting to really get his Texas kids to buy in.

→ Dabo Swinney wins Home Depot Coach of the Year

I’m not sure Clemson is good enough to win the national title, but I’m happy it’s getting all this attention. In the long term, this can’t do anything but help future recruiting.

→ Lucha Underground Season 2 Premieres January 27th

Set your DVRs. This should be great.

→ Are we witnessing the decline of the great Darrelle Revis?

I’m not going to shed a tear at Revis’ decline. Couldn’t happen to a nice guy.

→ Dabo Swinney’s quotebox: To be ‘All In,’ ‘don’t buy the lie’ and B.Y.O.G.

Dabo’s the best. I hope he’s having good luck getting the Tigers ready for December 31.

→ Sami Zayn returns at NXT Newcastle

I’m so ready to see Zayn wrestle on Wednesday.

→ Watson Wins Davey O’Brien Awards

Not a real surprise, since Watson was the only QB in the Heisman finals. That said, it is well deserved.

→ Derrick Henry, Deshaun Watson and Christian McCaffrey are Heisman finalists

Good to see Deshaun on the list. I think people have already decided that Henry is going to get the award, but I’m glad to see that Deshaun (at least) gets to attend.
