    When Bill Fralic was an eighth-grader in the Penn Hills school district, he worked at a local golf course over the summer. It was there that he first met Pitt coach Jackie Sherrill. “What college do you play for?” Sherrill asked the 6-foot-3, 235-pound Fralic. Fralic told him he was going into the ninth grade. Needless to say, Sherrill had his No. 1 recruiting target for the recruiting class of 1981, and he would not be disappointed as he followed Fralic throughout his storied scholastic career. Fralic, who went on to become an All-American lineman at Pitt and an All-Pro...

    Who would have thought that the Super Bowl Halftime show, an American institution watched by more than 100 million people, would become the least wanted gig in music? But thanks to the ongoing controversy concerning the NFL’s stance on a player’s right to protest, brought to the forefront by football’s top conscientious objector Colin Kaepernick, Maroon 5 are learning the precarious stance that the performance represents. According to sources, the band has reached out to more than a half-dozen stars to appear as featured guests during the 13-minute slot midway through Super Bowl LIII, but so far, none have agreed...

  • It's up to Kirk Cousins to prove he's not an $84 million bust

    Last January, Case Keenum threw 20 incompletions, threw two picks, and threw away what felt like a Super Bowl in the cold of the NFC championship game in Philadelphia. The Minnesota Vikings saw their quarterback get outdueled by Eagles backup Nick Foles, dashing the dream of hosting the Super Bowl. Afterward, the franchise focused on a single thing – get a quarterback, just about any quarterback, at just about any price. All the other pieces were there, they believed. So they went out and got Kirk Cousins, for $84 million over three years, convincing him to come to Minnesota because...

    On Thanksgiving, Ezekiel Elliott dropped $21 and Dak Prescott into a giant Salvation Army kettle during a win over the Washington Redskins. His donation ended up costing him more than $13,000. *snip* “I mean, I didn’t really expect a fine,” Elliott told reporters. “Really don’t care about the fine. It’s all for a good cause. We’re trying to bring awareness to the Salvation Army." *snip* Elliott and Prescott both backed up their in-game stunts with $21,000 donations to the Salvation Army.

    The Washington Redskins signed Josh Johnson to fill their quarterback void late Tuesday. The Redskins’ quarterback problems have only continued to get worse after backup Colt McCoy got hurt Monday against the Philadelphia Eagles. That left Mark Sanchez as the guy to lead the way. Some speculated this was finally the opening Colin Kaepernick had been waiting for. The team even openly admitted they had taken a look at the former 49ers quarterback. (RELATED: Here Are The Best Moments From NFL Week 13) Well, fans of the national anthem kneeling quarterback had their hopes dashed when Johnson, who was recently...

    POMONA, Calif. — Prosecutors say former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner has been sentenced to eight years in prison for trying to kill his ex-girlfriend after breaking into her Southern California home. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office says Browner was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to attempted murder as part of a deal with prosecutors. The 34-year-old also pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to a child. The judge ordered Browner to stay away from the victim and her two children for 10 years. Browner, who won Super Bowls with the Seattle Seahawks and New England...

    Say what you will about Colt McCoy, but he knew exactly how fleeting his opportunity would be to start for the Washington Redskins. This is the second chance he had waited years to find. So, even after breaking his leg on a play in the first half vs. the Philadelphia Eagles, he stayed in the game. Even hobbled, he completed his next two passes for five and 10 yards, taking the Redskins into field goal range where Dustin Hopkins put D.C. on the board. From there, McCoy was finally coaxed out of the game and into the locker room, where...

    Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt has been accused of being involved in a third attack at a nightclub earlier this year, and newly released video shows the 23-year-old being restrained immediately following the alleged incident. A police report names Hunt, along with former Chiefs running back George Atkinson and one other as the suspects who beat a 38-year-old man inside Mosaic nightclub, breaking his rib and nose on January 7. This comes one week after TMZ Sports released surveillance video from a Cleveland hotel showing the second-year running back attacking a 19-year-old woman in February 2018.
  • NFL: Packers fire head coach McCarthy after 13 seasons

    OAN ^ | December 3, 2018 | (Reporting by Andrew Both in Cary, North Carolina; Editing by Nick Mulvenney/Peter Rutherford)
    (Reuters) – The Green Bay Packers fired head coach Mike McCarthy on Sunday, ending his 13-season tenure in charge of the storied National Football League (NFL) team. McCarthy guided the Packers to a fourth Super Bowl triumph in the 2010 season and the franchise won their division six times and made the playoffs nine times under his command. However, a 20-17 home loss to the lowly Arizona Cardinals on Sunday proved to be the final straw in a disappointing season for the Packers, who look set to miss the playoffs. McCarthy’s axing also comes amid reports of tension between the...

    Colin Kaepernick hasn’t played in an NFL game in two years. Could he make his return this season, in the Pro Bowl? That’s what some of his supporters plan to find out. This year the NFL is allowing fans to vote for Pro Bowlers on Twitter by using the hashtag #ProBowlVote and writing the name of the player they want to vote for. That means players don’t have to be on any official ballot to receive a Pro Bowl vote. They simply have to have their names tweeted. And Kaepernick has plenty of supporters on Twitter who have begun voting...

    A Supreme Court case about jurisdiction in an obscure murder has huge implications for tribes. On the morning of June 22, 1839, the Cherokee leader John Ridge was pulled from his bed, dragged into his front yard and stabbed 84 times while his family watched. He was assassinated for signing the Cherokee Nation’s removal treaty, a document that — in exchange for the tribe’s homelands — promised uninterrupted sovereignty over a third of the land in present-day Oklahoma. That promise was not kept. Sixty-seven years later, federal agents questioned John’s grandson, William D. Polson. They needed to add him to...
