It seems like a given that former UCF quarterback, Blake Bortles, is on pace to become the highest drafted UCF player into the NFL in the schools history. A distinction currently held by another former UCF quarterback, Daunte Culpepper, who went 11th overall back in 1999. About an hour ago ESPN’s Todd McShay released his mock draft and Bortles is sitting on top.
While compiling info for his annual overrated/underrated list of NBA players, ESPN’s Chris Broussard spoke with an anonymous Eastern Conference scout who said something pretty outrageous. It is particularly outrageous because when healthy, Rajon Rondo is considered one of the top five point guards in the league.
Oklahoma State guard and expected first-round NBA Draft pick, Marcus Smart, might have caused his draft stock to plummet tonight, when he shoved a fan during Oklahoma State’s 65-61 loss to Texas Tech.
I really want to know what that fan said to Marcus Smart.

Man oh man, if this whole George Zimmerman “celebrity boxing,” thing wasn’t already bizarre enough, with rapper The Game already saying that he wants to fight Zimmerman, and DMX saying that he wants to “piss on him.” Zimmerman has now named who he wants to see in the boxing ring, Kanye West.
We legitimately live in the craziest society here in the United States of America. Seven months after being acquitted for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, and a few months after being arrested for the alleged assault of his girlfriend George Zimmerman is considered “a celebrity.”
George Zimmerman is a legit celebrity from killing a black teen.

Two NBA records went down tonight in the association. Fresh off being named an all star for the seventh time in his career Carmelo Anthony broke Kobe Bryant‘s record 61 points in Madison Square Garden (MSG) and set a new Knicks record, and Chandler Parsons set the record for most threes in a half for NBA basketball.
Get your brackets ready, March Madness is less than two months away, and a couple rich guys have decided to put up a billion, yes with a b, dollars for a perfect bracket.
To say that Richard Sherman is outspoken would be a huge understatement; from going after Darrelle Revis saying that he was the best cornerback in the NFL, to attacking Skip Bayless on ESPN First Take, well he was back at it again after the Seattle Seahawks defeated the San Fransisco 49ers to advance to the Super Bowl.
The Orlando Magic lost in a triple overtime game last night against the Chicago Bulls that is being hailed as an “instant classic,” well that classic wouldn’t have been possible had Jameer Nelson not hit a game tying three to send the game into the first overtime. Well I’m sure Nelson wasn’t expecting that game tying three to cost him $15,000 but it did.
The NFL is looking towards new ways to freshen up an otherwise stale Pro Bowl event, with a new format this year. It might be NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, who many consider the greatest cornerback in NFL history, who might have come up with a idea that may take it over the top.
Some major news for “the city beautiful,” and a sign that the profile of the city is raising since the Amway Center opened, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced that they will hold a live UFC on FOX event from Orlando in April.
With the news that two UCF Knights would be entering the NFL draft this year, we decided to channel our inner Bleacher Report and run down the top 10 Knights players to have played in the NFL.
This past week saw both Blake Bortles and Storm Johnson announce their intentions to declare for the NFL draft, so we figured there isn’t a better time to run down the top 10 best Knights in school history.
