The College Search is on

I haven’t had the time to write up my usual non-football thoughts this year, and one of the reasons is because I’ve had to spend time helping my oldest son look at colleges. I know, I know.

Here's me in 1992, at 23, with the kid who'll now be in college this September. The only thing scarier than the what-do-I-do-now look on my face is the mullet on the back of my head.

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills.
