It's Heeere! No. 1 Mississippi State at Alabama

USA Today Sports
There's no question the No. 1 Mississippi St. Bulldogs have had a dream season. But their biggest test (by far) of the season has arrived-- a showdown in Tuscaloosa with the No. 5 Crimson Tide! If the Bulldogs want to prove all their doubters (including me) wrong-- THIS IS IT!!

Are the Bulldogs worthy of the No. 1 ranking? We shall see.... but I still have my doubts!

Cy Young & MVP: The Perfect 10


KUDOS to Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw on becoming the 10th pitcher in MLB history to win both the Cy Young Award and the MVP Award in the same season. If just winning one award isn't hard enough, imagine winning both? It's amazing that this rare feat as actually been accomplished 10 times.

Here's a list of the Elite 10:
  1. Don Newcombe, Brooklyn Dodgers - 1956
  2. Sandy Koufax, Los Angeles Dodgers - 1963
  3. Denny McLain, Detroit Tigers - 1968
  4. Bob Gibson, St. Louis Cardinals - 1968
  5. Rollie Fingers, Milwaukee Brewers - 1981
  6. Willie Hernandez, Detroit Tigers - 1984
  7. Roger Clemens, Boston Red Sox - 1986
  8. Dennis Eckersley, Oakland A's - 1992
  9. Justin Verlander, Detroit Tigers - 2011
  10. Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers - 2014
Simply amazing!!
