On the heels of a raccoon invading Monday night’s Eagles-Giants game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Tiffany Oshinsky wonders if the creature might portend better things for the Eagles this season.
Not Looking Great
We've had a couple weeks to chew on the dicey situation at Louisville, where an escort alleged that a basketball staffer provided players and recruits with strippers and sexual services. Now former Louisville recruiting targets have confirmed the allegations, saying it was like a "strip club". Head coach Rick Pitino continues to say he was not aware of the parties and cannot definitely say whether or not they occurred, but is imploring the former staffer to tell the truth. ESPN college hoops analyst and former Virginia Tech head coach Seth Greenberg doesn't believe Pitino can or will remain the Cardinals' coach, regardless of the outcome of the situation.
Doesn't Change Anything
Colts punter Pat McAfee became the first player to finally explain what happened on that atrocious fake punt play, and although his explanation makes partial sense, it still remains one of the worst plays in NFL history and an awful decision from Chuck Pagano.

Déjà Vu for J.T.?
A video released this week appeared to show a Texas high school football coach bribing a referee at midfield after a game. Although the video looks very bad, the coach has said he was not bribing him and his story is definitely legit. Here’s the video that led to the uproar:

"This is Embarrassing"
The Colts' botched fake punt might have been one of the worst plays in NFL history, but let's not forget that other teams have also run horrific plays, including the Redskins, who attempted this beauty in 2009.
