Fox’s Top Ten: Thanks for Playing, Oklahoma

Oklahoma lost to Iowa State. In football. As a 30 point favorite. Elsewhere, Michigan gave up 94 passing yards…and lost. Mark Dantonio beat the Wolverines for the eighth time in 10 years, who will no doubt be pissed off and looking to take it out on their next opponent….*looks at schedule*…Indiana. Jim Harbaugh will definitely try to avenge his fallen brother-in-law, Tom Crean, but I’m all in on the Hoosiers this week and will be on hand to will them to victory (or yet another heartbreaking loss). Auburn continues to climb, Ohio State returns to prominence, and Washington State...

Fox’s Top Ten: We Look Destined for Alabama-Clemson III

Remember Mike Leach? After being banished to Washington State, a program with no discernible history, Leach’s Cougars just knocked off USC in a 30-27 upset. While the loss sent USC tumbling in the rankings, Wazzu is just outside the Top 10 this week. A win at Oregon should be enough to change that. It’s been a while since the last time we did this, so let’s get right into it. 10. TCU The Frogs will host GameDay this week when Will Grier and West Virginia come calling. Last time out, TCU provided the blueprint for how to beat Mason...

That statistic shouldn’t be that shocking, really. American tennis has been in a real funk since the twilight of Andy Roddick’s career, at least on the men’s side. American women have arguably been the best group in the world, with the Williams sisters, Madison Keys, Sloane Stephens, Coco Vandeweghe, and others all having great success. But the men have been unable to sustain any run of elite form, with players...

2017 NBA Draft: Eastern Conference Grades

Previously, we brought you the NBA’s Western Conference draft grades. Here are our Eastern Conference draft grades. Atlanta Hawks: B Additions: John Collins (19), Tyler Dorsey (41), Alpha Kaba (60) The illustrious Dwight Howard era in Atlanta is over, and the Hawks needed a big body to replace the loss of both him and Paul Millsap. Despite sharing a name with arguably the least athletic member of my 16” softball team, Collins has the potential to be a great player. He’s a great interior player who needs to add some range in order to really be successful at this...

Way too Early 2017-18 College Basketball Top Ten

It has been two months since Gonzaga lost in the national championship and sent your favorite college basketball opiner into an existential crisis. We have come a long way since I was sending out tweets like this: It is bad that Gonzaga is going to lose, but the good news is that death will eventually claim us all — Brian Fox (@RealBrianFox) April 4, 2017 My Gonzaga-fueled depression has abated and I’m ready to look ahead to next year. Now that the draft deadline has come and gone, and all the top recruits  have committed, just about every roster...
