    The Notre Dame Fighting Irish football program will give up some of its independence in 2014, when it becomes a pseudo-member of the ACC. Last September, ND announced it was moving its athletic programs from the Big East to the ACC, but as part of the deal, the Irish are now contracted to play five…

    Penn State’s relationship with the NCAA isn’t the best at the moment, so the Nittany Lions are moving to the NFL! Well, a couple of the stadiums at least. The Big Ten released its 2015 football schedules on Tuesday and the Nittany Lions will be playing right off I-95 twice in just under two months.…

    The secret to success — let your international travel documents expire. It worked for Matt Brown. Brown, a 5-foot-5 five running back and returner from Temple who left the program No. 2 all-time in all-purpose yards, agreed to a deal with the Saskatchewan Roughriders two weeks ago, but apparently never signed the contract. Now he’s…

    5-30-13-american-logo

    I made the conscious decision to spend my life covering/following college football and basketball, and I’ve spent the last three months writing and re-writing conference realignment columns because the paragraphs were borderline incomprehensible. Well these schools are going to be in the New Big East and these schools are the Old Big East, but that…

    The NCAA Lacrosse National Championship took place over the weekend at the Linc in South Philly and with it came all of the Lax Bros. It’s actually a pretty fantastic event to have take place in Philadelphia and it’s hard to argue with tailgating in the sun while throwing the ball around — even if…

    There was an uproar last year when then-first-year head coach Bill O’Brien decided Penn State players’ names would be put on the backs of their jerseys as a way to honor those who remained with the program following the horrors of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. The jerseys looked fine, Penn State won eight of its…

    Some college basketball news here heading into the weekend: Plymouth Whitemarsh product Jaylen Bond tweeted Friday that he’ll be transferring to Temple. The 6-foot-7 forward spent two years at Texas but was granted his release back in March after he didn’t get the kind of run he wanted in head coach Rick Barnes’ rotation. For…

    Former Temple coach Wayne Hardin was named to the College Football Hall of Fame on Tuesday. Hardin is the winningest coach in program history, with an 80-50-3 record.

    Look, I hate to be the one who breaks it to ya, but the Phillies stink. They’re terrible. I mean, one of the guys on their team is named “Laynce.” Not Lance. Laynce. That’s no way to spell a name. So the fact that the Phils are playing at 1pm this Saturday doesn’t matter. You don’t have to watch. Stop wasting your time, stop cheering for a bunch of losers and go do something productive with your Saturday afternoon for once in your boring, miserable life. Head down to Franklin Field for the most awesome, ridiculous, exciting afternoon ever.

    Don’t believe me?

    Don’t think a track and field meet can be that exciting? Keep reading, Laynce. Keep reading.

    Win three games and advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 58 years, get one clip (the wrong one). Win two games and boast the leading scorer of the tournament, get zero clips. Win zero games, get two clips.

    Apparently the less you do in the tournament, the more times you get in ‘One Shining Moment,’ and vice versa. Looking at you, ‘Nova.

    You can watch La Salle star and one of the breakout players from this year’s NCAA Tournament, Ramon Galloway, talk about competing in the college dunk contest at the Final Four in the video above. He’s also shown practicing a few dunks, but let’s be honest, the dunks shown better be his warm up drills if he wants any shot at winning.

    Chances are that you know very little about Wichita State and not the basketball team, the actual university. Consequently, we’ve prepared a fact sheet based mostly off what we found on Wikipedia, the universities’ websites, Forbes, and the National Center for Education Statistics.

    Twitter can be a double-edged sword. Many young athletes become infamous for screwing up on social media when they don’t know how to filter themselves and inevitably wind up in trouble. But then there are those unique times like Sunday night when you see a young kid like Philadelphia’s own Ty Garland react to becoming one of the most talked about stories in the world. Literally.

    Oh, man. This video of La Salle students at the Tom Gola Arena in North Philadelphia reacting to the final seconds of the Explorers’ wild victory over Ole Miss to advance to the Sweet 16 is one of those things that reminds you why you love sports so damn much. And the girls mockingly doing Marshall Henderson’s patented land shark move is the cherry on top.

    All it took for the La Salle Explorers to become the talk of the entire world was a simple answer to a question from the funky-suit-wearing Craig Sager. What do you call that final shot that propelled your team into the Sweet 16?

    Mar 23, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1003875.jpg

    He exhibits the on-court demeanor of a borderline sociopath, shoots with no regard for efficiency, openly shit talks opposing players and coaches, and looks like Sid from Toy Story. He’s Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson and he’s playing the La Salle Explorers on Sunday.
