Pulis future in doubt after transfer bust-up
- September 05, 2016

Pulis could be about to add two more players to his squad, however, as former Arsenal and Crystal Palace striker Chamakh featured in the opening 25 minutes of the 1-0 win at The Hawthorns, before being withdrawn following a collision. I'll be here with West Brom this week and we'll see what happens after that.

The eyes of Texas are on the starting QB
- September 05, 2016

A year ago, Texas lost 38-3 at Notre Dame, and lost at Cal on a missed extra point attempt in the final two minutes, and lost to Oklahoma State because of a fumbled punt snap in the final minute. Entering the game as the tenth ranked team in the country, Notre Dame will undoubtedly take a major hit in the college football playoff rankings.
