Kimbo Slice

The Cinderella story of MMA ended with a surprise opponent and a swift first-round takedown over the weekend. It was fun while it lasted.

Chicago Cubs

Their most recent meltdown, getting swept from the playoffs after having the best record in the National League, has one fan auctioning his allegiance on eBay.

Ball State is ranked for the first time ever - how good is this team and what’s the forecast for the rest of the season?

Ball State has rolled in two games without top wideout Dante Love by 41-20 and 31-0 margins.
