    WASHINGTON At a dinner in one of Fidel Castros palaces in 1999, Castro and several of Major League Baseballs senior executives discussed one of the few bonds between Cuba and the United States: baseball. The executives, including baseballs commissioner, Bud Selig, were there for an exhibition game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Cuban national team, as part of an effort by President Bill Clinton to thaw relations. As the dinner stretched into the early hours of the morning, Castro regaled Selig with tales from the history of Cuban baseball and fantasized about what would happen if the United...

    t's not often that a power-conference school should hire a coach straight from FCS, but Coastal Carolina's Joe Moglia isn't most coaches. The former CEO of TD Ameritrade, Moglia stepped back into coaching in 2009 as a volunteer assistant at Nebraska. In 2011, he became the head coach of the United Football League's Omaha Nighthawks, and in 2012, he got his first job as a college head coach at Coastal Carolina.

    Vanity
    Several media pundits have opined over the last several months that it almost appears that divine intervention is playing a role in the continuing close, come-from-behind victories that Florida State University has achieved this season. If so, would that be a valid reason for the Football Playoff Committee to exclude FSU from the Top Four? After all, Alabama would not want to play America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys, so they SURELY would not want to play God's Team, no?

  • Washington could stick with Robert Griffin III in 2015, fire Jay Gruden per report

    Washington head coach Jay Gruden could be "one and done" with the team if he insists on moving on from quarterback Robert Griffin III heading into the 2015 season, according to a report from Jason Reid of The Washington Post. Griffin was benched by Gruden in favor of Colt McCoy when it became clear that Griffin wasn't able to execute the kind of offensive gameplan that Gruden likes to run. Namely, Griffin struggles to make reads from the pocket, and Gruden's offense relies on a pocket passer.

    Do you enjoy hearing the song "Dixieland Delight" sung by a packed Bryant-Denny Stadium during Alabama football games? Well, it appears weve heard it for the last time at least for now. The singing of "Dixieland Delight" has been a Crimson Tide tradition for years, but the school has decided to put a stop to the song because Bama fans turn it into a vulgar taunt of the opponent. An email was recently sent around Alabamas marketing folks requesting the song be removed from all athletic events until the universitys AD decides otherwise.
