Tonight, Alabama center Barrett Jones and the Crimson Tide will take on Notre Dame for the BCS title. But Jones is more than just a football player concerned about winning games, he’s concerned about others and winning their hearts to Christ. Our story on Jones originally appeared in the Summer 2011 issue… Continue reading
The NFL Draft starts on Thursday, April 26 and former Michigan State quarterback, Kirk Cousins, will be hoping to hear his name called by an NFL team some time in the early rounds. In our story about from the Summer 2011 issue of Sports Spectrum, Cousins talked about his future in the NFL.
“Ultimately, the whole NFL thing and the future in general, whether you are playing in the pros or just your future, whether you’re an athlete or a college student in general, most of us don’t know what’s going to happen in the next few years.”

Last week we talked about the BCS process and I said we would talk about the corruption of the entire process. Well, you’re gonna have to wait one more week.

“Sam, Tim and I have a lot in common,” McCoy says. “It was fun getting to know those guys at all of the award events last year, and we’ve stayed in touch. I don’t know if our fans would like it, but Sam and I have gotten really close. We talk pretty regularly.”
A Longhorn (McCoy) befriending a Sooner (Bradford)? Will wonders never cease?… Continue reading
Tom Krattenmaker and Matt Dunn give their take on the Jim Tressel and Ohio St. scandal.
Would you feel the pressure to cheat or bend the rules as a head coach in college football? Tom Krattenmaker believes he would if he was subject to the same intense pressures, byzantine rules and tantalizing rewards…
Matt Dunn argues that when Christians elevate a football coach to be more of a preacher of the gospel, not only is it unfair to the coach (in this case Jim Tressel) but it is a disservice to the body of Christ… Continue reading
