    C'mon guru! Malcolm Perry rushing for 300 plus yards, weaving his way through holes and turning on the speed when necessary, was a thing of beauty. I'll agree with the comment regarding Army's...

    What would it look like in the first round of a Grand Slam tournament? If Federer or Nadal is serving at 6-0, 6-0, 5-0, should they allow the opponent to win a few games? Maybe they let off the gas a...

    Lavillenie is certainly the premier vaulter of the decade, and may well end up in the Top Ten of AOD, but his WC record should keep him out of the Top 5. Granted, he has an Olympic gold and silver,...
