#3 TCU took on #5 LSU this weekend and let everyone know that the Horned Frogs are legit. It was a defensive struggle but TCU was able to come out on top 13-10.


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't give Christian Skaggs any break Sunday, sacking the QB 6 times. The offense did their part behind QB Taylor Heiden and rookie RB DeNorris Jackson and came away with a 28-21 win.


A top 15 matchup between the #11 Toledo Rockets and #15 Florida Gators ended in heartbreak for the Rockets. Florida managed to pull out the 25-22 win on the road. Anyone doubting either team was put on notice.


The Green Bay Packers have raced to a 5-0 start after beating the 2-2 Seattle Seahawks. This game was very banner worthy which is why it is on here. I wonder if anyone can "catch" the Green Bay Packers, or maybe "intercept" them? No no, definitely catch.

    [The Players' Tribune] I Am Still the Greatest by Rahim Murrell

    Recommended Posts

    April 28th, 2020 - That didn’t go as planned.  15 of 30 for 140 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs.  My worst outing to date on the biggest stage I have ever played on.  And yet… I am still the greatest.


    Fear.  Failure.  Defeat.  These are not unfamiliar feelings to me.  A lesser football player would crumble under pressure.  But I am no ordinary football player.  I am the greatest.


    To the fans in the stands who booed during the 2nd half, there is more going on behind the scenes then you see.  You see 1 poor performance.  You see 60 minutes of failure and are ready to move on.  But 60 minutes of failure does not, a career break.  You don’t see the fire in my belly.  You don’t see how pissed off I am at myself.  You have no idea how many times I have rehashed every play in my mind.  You don’t see the 14 hours of film I watched over the weekend.  You don’t see the hours of route work I put in with Devon [Tillman] working on timing.  I will be the greatest!


    Go ahead and hate.  Write fan posts about how bad I am.  Petition coach to make Julius [Minnow] the starter.  All you are doing is adding fuel to the fire.  I thrive on the hatred.  I thrive on the distain.  I have been an underdog my entire life.  I am the greatest.


    The gridiron isn’t all sunshine and rainbows.  It’s a nasty place and it doesn’t matter how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there if you let it.  Football is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward.  That’s how winning is done!  You gotta be willing to take the hits.  And I take the hits.  I roll with the hits.  That’s how I have done it my entire career.  I am the greatest.


    Coach @HAFFnHAFF may be no @vtgorilla.  Devon [Tillman] may be no Daniel Hobbs.  Damani [Askew] may be no Justin Burris.  But Tucker Dowden is no Rahim.  From the ashes we will rise.  We will rise together and be better than ever before because…
