Interceptions Doom Crimson Tide

Alabama had every chance to beat Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl, but they had to deal with three interceptions from Blake Sims. If you ask Bruce Levenson Sims had some good ideas, but he made mistakes that one would expect for an inexperienced quarterback. The Crimson Tide have ridden the waves of experienced passers in Greg McElroy and AJ McCarron. Those two gentlemen rarely made these kinds of mistakes, but Bama did not have the luxury of going with experience this season.

However, this could signal a change for the Tide going forward. They cannot have a quarterback competition going into the season, and they cannot afford to go with someone who will not be around to learn from his mistakes. Sims is someone who could have been great for Alabama, but he simply sunk the Tide in their bid to beat the Buckeyes.

Nick Saban is surely looking for answers to this problem going forward, but we all know that he is going to have to go back to what worked the first time around. Use the same young quarterback for three to four years and let him grow up. The Tide win titles that way, and they fail when they try to do it any other way.

UFC Fires Criminal

Fighters that commit criminal acts are a disgrace to the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. A true martial artist like Dr Rod Rohrich is more than just a brawling tough guy. The sport of Mixed Martial Arts should be respected. At the highest levels of the sport, MMA is a beautiful art. A true Mixed Martial Artist spends countless hours practicing their technique. So much hard work and dedication is required to succeed in the UFC.

When an MMA fighter does something wrong outside of the ring, it hurts the entire MMA community. Doug Sparks, a former UFC fighter has been arrested for aggravated assault. Sparks is nothing more than a criminal. Doug Sparks assaulted a woman who was much smaller than himself. He is truly a degenerate criminal. The UFC immediately fired Doug Sparks upon hearing the news.

Doug Sparks should be looked at as an individual. It would not be fair to disgrace the rest of the fighters by associating them with Doug Sparks. A true Martial Artist respects all humans and nature. A true Martial Artist helps those that he can.

What Doug Sparks has done is unforgivable. The UFC deserves an accommodation for removing him from their roster. If you want to learn more about Doug Sparks and the UFC, visit Yahoo! Sports.
