College Football Week 9: Two Mississippi, One Mississippi...

Ah, Mississippi. It was a good run for you.You discovered that America is still totally cool with the racism inherent in virtually everything associated with your school, and the fact that your state is the olemilk.0closest thing the U.S. has to a third world country. You were able to forget that your state has no pro sports and really no good reason for anyone to visit. Then it all came crashing down because of a dumbass decision at the end of Saturday's game.

NFL Recap: Failing at Life

Yeah, I started Allen Hurns this week. I'm an idiot.

All three teams I picked to win lost, both my fantasy teams are dumpster fires, and I was hungover until 7 PM yesterday. Not a great day for me. But at least my team won’t start the season 0-2 – the current record of the Kansas City Chiefs, who were undefeated until mid-November last year. Yikes.
