→ Conroy, Hamill Return for “Justice League Action” on Cartoon Network

Kevin Conroy will always be Batman to me.

→ Tyler Breeze Allegedly In WWE Doghouse

Ugh. Sometimes I just wish they could expand NXT and let these guys continue to excel there.

→ Clemson claims consecutive top-25 wins for first time in 27 years

This doesn’t take away the sting of the national title game loss, but it’s nice the basketball team isn’t going to be dead last in the conference.

→ NFL report contends home markets failed Rams, Raiders, Chargers

Are you serious? The home markets “failed” these NFL teams? This whole thing is disgusting. NFL teams demand public funds, tax breaks, etc… to get a stadium built and then make billions of dollars without actually benefiting the surrounding areas (despite claims they do.) Part of me feels bad for these areas losing their teams, but part just wants to invite them to join the growing crowd of people who thinks the NFL is a disgrace.

→ Voltron Reboot coming to Netflix

If they don’t form Voltron by the end of the first episode, I’m not watching any more of the show.

→ John Cena’s Shoulder Surgery Was Successful, So Now He Can Hurry Up And Start Recovering

I hope the WWE uses this period without Cena to do something interesting. Based on the timing, I would think his big return would be at SummerSlam.

→ Breaking News: John Cena Undergoing Shoulder Surgery

Rut roh. Looks like things are about to get really interesting.

→ Awful CFP semifinal ratings show sport still lacks common sense

Dan Wetzel tears down College Football for having the playoff games on New Year’s Eve:

You move an event from a national holiday synonymous with the sport to the middle of a workday for many and this is what happens – ratings drop as much as 45 percent. Double that by placing a second game on a night with endless entertainment options and longstanding traditions and you’re completely spitting in the face of many of your fans.

I was one of those people who felt much less inclined to watch the various games on New Year’s Day after this. What other sport would put its bet games in a subpar time slot as a prelude to inferior games?

→ Clemson advances to the national title game, dominates Oklahoma in second half

The second was pretty fun to watch.

→ Dabo Swinney lived with his mom in college at Alabama and it made them closer

In case you need one more reason to root for Dabo.

→ Clemson faked a punt in the playoff vs Oklahoma and it blew college football’s mind

As this play was developing I screamed “I can’t believe this is happening again.” After the pass was completed, however, the whole feeling of the game changed.

→ Sooners talked early, but Clemson delivered final word in Orange Bowl

Oklahoma talked a lot before this game, so I quite enjoyed watching Clemson thump them. That said, I don’t think there is going to be a lot of talk from Alabama before the title game.

→ A quick look ahead to the Clemson-Alabama national championship

Clemson’s main goal is going to be stopping Henry, which is what Michigan State tried to do, but in doing so, it’s also going to have to put pressure on Coker. The Tigers actually executed this feat well against the Oklahoma offensive line. Clemson got a ton of pressure on Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and sacked him five times. Mayfield, who has been an additional rushing threat for the Sooners at times this season, finished with 10 carries for minus-15 yards.

The previews of the game are already starting, and this one sounds about right.
