Lots of buzz tonight that King James will be returning home to the Cavs. It makes since with the top draft pick and plenty of good young talent to help him bring a title to Cleveland and also to secure his title as the best to ever play the game.

: Arian Foster Admits He Took Money In College
Arian Foster may be a great NFL running back, but he apparently is terrible at money management. Foster admits, while a student on scholarship at Tennessee, to taking money for food and having coaches bring him tacos, both are NCAA violations. What Foster seemed to have plenty of money for however, was ink. Not the kind of ink for taking notes in class, but the kind they use in tattoo needles.

So Arian was hungry while in college, which I highly doubt. How many students would love to buy some dinner for one of the best players on the team? Arian's beef is not with getting money for food, he has long been an advocate(saying so in an 2012 interview on the Dan Patrick Show) for college players to be paid. He seemed openly disgusted that coaches make millions while students get nothing. But do they get nothing? No they get a free college education and for a select few like Arian, they get training that could earn them millions playing professionally. If college football players are to receive a stipend, shouldn't athletes in non-revenue producing sports like baseball and women's basketball, also receive an allowance for giving their all for their university

Adidas vs Nike

July 26th 2013 00:37
: Adidas vs Nike
For the last ten years or so it seems Adidas has been seeming standing around with their heads in the sand while Nike has taken huge lead in collegiate uniforms. it's gotten so bad for Adidas that I've read where big time recruits have turned down scholarships to big time programs based solely on the fact that the program was "an Adidas school" With their new TechFit line, I wonder if it is too little too late for the former leader in athletic apparal.

Check out this website to view some of the new collegiate uniforms out this year.
