    There’s a lesson to be learned with what has happened with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Blake Bortles. They waited too long to make a decision, and now they’re in quarterback hell.

    Blake Bortles’ best season as a QB is better than Jameis’ best season as a QB.

    Robotaxi is a great idea in theory. It will be the norm some day, but I’ll let other people be the guinea pig (or “test tube” for the PETA crowd) and work out the kinks before I give it a ride.

    Leach was spot on!

    It’s such a sham that UCF goes undefeated multiple years in a row, beats every ranked opponent thrown at them, and still can’t get a shot. They can’t control their schedule, and good teams literally don’t want to come into the bounce house and play them.

    The CFP is as big a joke as the goons who run the NFL league offices.

    They should change the name to the Power-5 championship, because National implies that anyone in the nation has a shot, when clearly they don’t.
