The origin of Lance Berkman's "Big Puma" nickname

May 19, 2008 at 09:24 PM

Houston sports media personality Lance Zierlein discusses the origins of former Canyon High School baseball star Lance Berkman's excellent Big Puma nickname. Berkman may have learned everything he knows about baseball from a young Brian Behrend, but he's always had the same sense of humor. That sense of humor is the main source of the name Big Puma: Well the discussion turned to his unfortunate nickname of "Fat Elvis". He told us the story of... Continue reading

Trinity U. Wins Game on 15 Lateral Final Play

October 28, 2007 at 07:13 AM

Down by two with only a couple seconds left in the game Trinity University out of San Antonio didn't have much hope against the mighty Millsaps Majors. One play, 61 yards, and fifteen laterals later the Tigers were celebrating an improbably victory. Check out the video below: Trinity did a great job of keeping the play alive and it actually looked like all of the laterals were legit laterals. Plays like this almost always end...

The Sooners lose to Boise State again in NCAA 08

May 25, 2007 at 09:13 PM

The Oklahoma Sooners lost to Boise State in historic fashion in last year's Fiesta Bowl, and it looks like EA isn't going to let them forget it. One of the biggest features they're touting in NCAA Football 08 (due out in July) is all the new trick plays they've added to the expanded play books. To highlight the feature, they're using a clip of Boise State using the Statue of Liberty play to beat OU... Continue reading

Dallas city council trying to blow Super Bowl bid

March 23, 2007 at 02:51 PM

First Mayor Laura Miller and her fellow idiots on the Dallas City Council cost Dallas the Cotton Bowl (and probably the Texas/Oklahoma game.)

Despite not being interested in paying for the new stadium or the economic revival it would bring, Dallas is trying to bully their way into reaping all the... Continue reading

EA announces NCAA Football 08 cover boy

Zabransky and his Bronco teammates had a storybook season and knocked off the Oklahoma Sooners in the Fiesta Bowl in one of the most exciting college football games of the year. It was one of the more interesting stories of this season, but there's no way he deserves to be on the cover. Zabransky... Continue reading

Vince really had an impressive season, he even exceeded my high expectations for him in year one. This was a remarkably good year... Continue reading
