On Sunday, a handful of the best college football running backs from the 2012 season put their strengths and skills to test at the 2013 NFL Combine.
Tiny speedster Onterio McCalebb suffered through a disappointing season at Auburn, but he absolutely helped himself with a blazing 4.21-second unofficial 40-yard dash.
Two who disappointed were Wisconsin’s Montee Ball and Florida’s Mike Gillislee. Neither were expected to be taken in the first round, but their sprint times (4.66 for Ball and 4.55 for Gillislee) and their bench press totals (tied each other for last with 15 reps of 225) may keep them out of the top rounds altogether.
How did the entire field perform at the Combine?
Analyst Charles Barkley said that he believes the NBA wants the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, and has told the refs to make life hard on the Indiana Pacers.
This is for fun, but the folks over at Every Day Should be Saturday gave us an excellent reason as to how Nick Saban is able to recruit so well at Alabama.
Indiana Pacers forward George Hill compared LeBron James to God, but the four-time MVP pointed to two late turnovers in Game 2 to prove otherwise.
Arizona Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez joined in with a mariachi band who came into the office to celebrate his birthday.

The popular Memphis restaurant Iris turned away Spurs guard Tony Parker, and its statement regarding why is the greatest thing you’ll see all day.
