Why is Bob Stoops so mad at the Aggies? - Good Bull Hunting

Stoops commented on A&M's non-conference schedule today and knew all of the teams the Aggies play and the order they play them in... hmm.

A&M's non-conference schedule is a joke, but rather than address that, using deflection is the oldest trick in the book.

Ray Rice and the real problem with the NFL's personal conduct policy -

The league is convinced it dropped the hammer on Ray Rice, but the public thinks otherwise. So where does the problem lie?

A global guide to the first world war - interactive documentary | World news |

Ten historians from 10 countries give a brief history of the first world war through a global lens. Using original news reports, interactive maps and rarely seen footage, including extraordinary shots…

The 100th Anniversary of the start of World War I is upon us, and The Guardian has put together an interactive perspective that is incredible. WWI wasn't America's war, but I've always found it fascinating in a horrifying kind of way.
