College football fans across the country are still buzzing over the shocking outcome of last weekend's Alabama-Auburn game football game. As a graduate of Florida State University, I couldn't be more proud of Auburn. What a game! War Eagle!
As expected, the odds makers picked Alabama to win. Who wouldn't? Alabama has been unstoppable all year, and this past weekend was expected to be no exception. Auburn might get an A for effort, bless their hearts, but those efforts would inevitably fall short. Thus, it came as no surprise when Alabama pulled ahead of Auburn 21-7. Everyone knew where this train was headed.
Even when Auburn tied the score at 21-21, there really wasn't any doubt about the end result. "Winners find a way" as they say, and Nick Saban and The Crimson Tide are nothing if not winners. So when the refs put one second back on the clock after what appeared to have been the last play of the game, everyone assumed that Alabama would win either in the last second on a field goal or in overtime. more >>

Lamar Odom should play in the NBA, says Los Angeles Clippers' coach Doc Rivers.
Odom, the 34-year-old NBA free agent and forward, is reportedly attempting to ready an NBA comeback after spending months in media headlines for allegedly stepping out on his marriage and battling with a drug addiction. While it is still not clear if Odom will indeed sign on with the Clippers, it seems Rivers is campaigning for the forward to get back into the league.
"I don't know what our plans are yet. I like Lamar," Rivers told the Los Angeles Times recently. "I want him to be in the NBA. And if things go right, here." more >>

Despite facing a challenging time in his football career over recent seasons, Tim Tebow has assured that he is happy and well. The football star is crediting his persistently positive outlook to his faith, saying that his identity has never been defined by him being a football player, but instead comes from who he is in Jesus Christ.
"I've never found my identity in who I was as a football player. I found my identity in who I am in Christ. And when you find your identity as a Christian, then regardless of your status, or your fame, or your popularity, or your position, that never changes," Tebow told Sports Illustrated. "So the roller-coaster that the world has always looked at my life and viewed, I'm very thankful that I don't have to live it."
"I'm the best now that I've ever been," the currently unemployed athlete added. more >>
