perth_map

Florida met with Kelly on Sunday, according to the Associated Press , hours after UCLA announced it had fired head coach Jim Mora. Kelly was sacked by the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.

It's back to Taylor, putting to bed one of the weirdest signal-caller switches we've seen all season. Read More »

Joe Morgan urges voters to keep steroid users out of Cooperstown

perth_map

Morgan writes that steroid users cheated and don't belong in Cooperstown. Unfortunately, Morgan's letter comes at least one year too late, as the Baseball Writers last winter elected Pudge Rodriguez - an obvious steroids cheat if there ever was one who Jose Canseco said he personally injected several times when they were teammates in Texas - and there are always going to be strong suspicions about Mike Piazza and Jeff Bagwell despite no tangible evidence they were users.
