The former Houston safety is now with the San Diego Chargers, signed as an undrafted free agent shortly after the draft was done. We checked in with McDonald before he headed […]

Fritz, Thompson optimistic about 2016 Tulane offense

Optimism is sometimes the only thing that keeps football players and their fans excited and on board after a down year (or several). Fortunately for the Tulane Green Wave football squad, the new head coach and at least one of their star players is not lacking in this department.

Middle Tennessee v Memphis

Memphis football program catching long looks from the community

Step away from the TV. Put the iPhones up. Lose all cellular devices. Today. Like, right now. Do you have any idea how many brain cells you’re losing from staring dully at a screen all day long? Don’t even get me started on your brain’s night-time count. You probably won’t really need the attention arresting electronics, […]

This story isn’t going to be about lorded Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry. You know. The NBA shooter that doesn’t really miss. We also won’t be talking about former Team USA blazing Olympic softball pitcher Jennie Finch, or 13-time Gold Glove Award Winning Major League Baseball catcher Ivan Rodriguez.
