Billy Napier’s “Least Stressful Job” Comments are a Double-Edged Sword for Gator Fans

Billy Napier is nothing but confident heading into his first season as the head coach of the Florida Gators. He told ESPN this week, “Coming here is the least stressful job I’ve had,” which might be great to hear if you are a Florida fan, but if you’re a fan of any of Florida’s many SEC rivals, you’ll probably be rooting extra hard this season for the Gators to fall flat so Coach Napier can eat those words.

Without Big Seasons, These Wide Receivers Could Be Looking for New Jobs Next Year

Tony Stewart’s “Major Announcement” Sucked. Here Are 3 Ways He Could’ve Made It Better.

On Tuesday, Tony Stewart teased a major announcement that had racing fans freaking out. I mean, you don’t use the word “major” unless it’s actually a big deal, right? Well, as it turns out, it really wasn’t that big of a deal. Tony’s “major announcement” is that he’s getting into the NFT space. Honestly, I don’t even really know what an NFT is (does anyone actually?), but apparently Stewart’s Smoke Racing collection will include cars that he’s raced in over the years, and each NFT will also include an autographed Tony Stewart firesuit. Blah, blah, blah. Who cares?!

Ty Dillon’s Indy Wreck Capped Off a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Month

Ty Dillon’s July featured a string of seriously unlucky incidents that the NASCAR Cup Series driver would probably like to put in the rearview mirror. It all started at the Quaker State 400 at Atlanta when he wrecked out on Lap 174. Then, a day before the race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Dillon found out he wouldn’t be returning to Petty GMS Motorsports next season, leaving him without a team for 2023. Then just a day later at NHMS, Dillon wrecked out on Lap 5. The next week at Pocono he spun out and ultimately placed 22nd, and then to cap off his awful month, Dillon wrecked out at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.

Meet Jahmyr Gibbs: Alabama’s Triple-Threat RB Transfer From Georgia Tech

The saying “we don’t rebuild, we reload” doesn’t ring more true for anyone in college football than the Alabama Crimson Tide. Head coach Nick Saban woos five-star recruit after five-star recruit, and who can blame them for going to Tuscaloosa? Saban is a pro at development and sending his players to the NFL.
